[REVIEW] Blox M2c

First, I’ll to thank Blox for the M2c sample. Blox is an odd brand. They are first known for their TM5 – a supposedly US$180 top-tier earbud which unfortunately I have had no luck of hearing as it was out-of-stock most of the time and discontinued before many can get their hand on one. But Blox did make itself a reputation as quality earbuds maker among few who did get to hear the TM5. Their second offering, the M2c, is taking a more humble road by selling at a much cheaper price – around $29 if you order more than 5 pairs or $47 shipped if you order a single pair. But just because it is cheap doesn’t mean it is not going to be good sounding. In fact, it is the opposite – I’ll still consider this is a great pair of earbud even if it costs $94 - but for half as much? This is a steal!

[Impression] Teclast X19HD

Due to the slow but obvious deterioration of battery life on my Cube C30 (a.k.a. Nationite N2) after over a year of faithful service, I have been looking for a suitable replacement for a while now. While C30 is by no mean the be-all-end-all of small DAPs, it is good sounding and powerful enough for me to get away from carrying a larger DAP or an amp. So I do have some high requirement for its successor. Though Cube has developed the C60 as C30 replacement - the larger size, lack of expansion slot and rather high asking price for a mere 4GB storage turn me away.  Instead my interest was focused on X19HD when it was announced. Teclast has made it pretty clear in its ads that the X19HD is supposedly going to be the C30 killer, or so they claimed. To be frank, I am kind of disappointed after the first listen.

[REVIEW] Atomic Floyd SuperDarts +Remote – IEM of STEEL

First, I'll like to thanks Atomic Floyd for the review sample.

Atomic Floyd, as a company, always seems a bit illusive to me in the past. It is a company mainly operates in Hong Kong and U.K. (where their main market seem to be) and has a fantastically well designed line of IEM. The bold styling and steel housing are much like modern art themselves, yet their IEM are very much under the radar. I have demoed one of their IEM some time ago and was quite impressed on both build and sound quality. Naturally, I have some high expectation for the SuperDarts that was released late last year, especially since it is one of the rare dynamic + balanced armature (BA) hybrid dual drivers IEM.

A bag of surprise
