CES2012: Aftermath

Like last year, CES this year gives little to no surprise as far as new IEM release are concerned. Your typical companies like Monster and SkullCandy are mostly showing off their old stuff; some new artist endorsed brands are (still) trying to make it big; some even just re-show their CES2011 line-up again (what is with that anyway?). The biggest news is actually Monster splitting up with the Beat by Dr.Dye brand, and I can't say it is a bad thing. Less boring than last year, even though the IEM market is still booming against the weak global economy.

Well, here is perhaps one of the most interesting IEM in the show - the AF78 by a new company called Audiofly. It is a balanced armature + dynamic dual drivers hybrid that will be sold at around $200. Not too bad a price actually.

MEElectronics is also showing off their latest line-up as well. The upcoming A161 is the most interesting as it closely resembles the Fischer Audio SBA-03 I have reviewed last year. If it is as good (or better), it will be something to look forward to. We shall see.

Disclaimer: All trademarks and logos in the website belong to their respective owners. 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.
