It has been quite some time since SoundMAGIC last major IEM release (of PL50 and PL21), but they have continue to make minor improvement over their older lineup, became OEM supplier to major Western headphone brand, and even released a portable headphone amp of their own. One thing that has not been lost for all these time is their principle of offering real bang for the bucks products for the lower end of the market. The four new SoundMAGIC headphones are perhaps the best proof of the company business model and again aim to push the standard of price / performance ratio to a new height.

Radius is a company with a long and interesting history (see my original DDM / HP-TWF11 review for more detail). But before the original DDM, they were not really considered as a serious headphone company. In fact, they were almost unheard of outside of Japan and only several of their lower-end, fairly generic earphones could be found in the computer accessories section of a large bookstore. They were much more successful as a PC accessories brand then they ever were an earphones brand. But if there is a tale about one headphone that makes the fame of a company, it isn’t anything more befitting than the release of original DDM for Radius. However, DDM is such a radical sounding and designed IEM that it really isn’t for everyone. This is perhaps why Radius took their ‘Dual Diaphragm Matrix’ dynamic transducer back to the drawing board and developed the new HP-TWF21 “W n°2” (or DDM2, as more commonly referred by the user). Another Radius IEM that is under review is called the ‘radHeadphones LIVE’ – I am not really sure what ‘rad’ means but it is developed as a specialty IEM that meant to do one thing: That is to inject the sense of live performance into any type of rock music. Yes, rock music only.
By the way, do check out the new HP-TWF21’s English site here.
