IFA 2014

Here comes the IFA in a few days and we are already getting some press release.

Sennheiser is released 4 new models within the CX line, namely CX1.00, CX2.00, CX3.00 and CX5.00 (shown in picture above). Yes, the naming scheme is rather odd, and no, no price has been mentioned.

RHA is released a new flagship called the T10i, with single dynamic transducer and 3 pair of customizable nozzles with different tuning. Price is around USD$250.

[Impression] iFi nano iDSD and iCAN with a splash of iPurifer

iFi Audio has gained a great success over its Micro line of small sized desktop gears, and now it is pushing into the portable world with the Nano series. The nano iDSD is USB DAC that not only works with PC, but also has OTG support for the iDevice with OS7 (via camera connection kit / CCK) and Android that have USB Audio Class driver built-in (*for older Android that doesn’t have the driver, there is still a chance that USB Audio Player PRO will work). The nano iCAN on the other hand is a pure portable amp, but infused with the magical XBass and 3D Holographic Sound we have seen on the micro iCAN. Both are retailed under US$200.

Creative’s answer to that demand is the new Sound Blaster E1 – a multipurpose USB DAC + headphone amp + mic that boosted with quite a few impressive features.
