CES2011... or not.

CES 2011 has turned out to be quite boring for me this year. I practically haven't seen any new in ear model that remotely looks interesting. Sure there are some in ear models being released, mainly an Active Noise Canceling (ANC) model from Sennheiser, yet another IEM from Monster Cable, and the leaked Westone 4. Sleek Audio has a big hit on the show with their new wireless full sized headphone, but the elusive SA7 and SA6R are still a bit far from market release. There are other offerings from smaller companies as well, but nothing major to write home for.

The one thing that stands out in this year CES is Sonomax's Sculpted Eers. It is basically a self-contained one-times-only custom IEM kit that allow the user to make an semi custom IEM at home or at store. Check out this CNet video on how it works.


Anyway, here is something I missed last month that looks more interesting than those on CES: Future Sonics is making another custom IEM based on the MG5pro dynamic transducer from the last generation Atrio (the current version uses MG7pro). This will be offered alongside the new MG6pro custom IEM.

Beside getting free review samples, I don't work for or get paid by anyone to write anything on this website, or anywhere else in that matter. Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
