IFA2014 Part 2

Sony has announced a lot of stuffs in IFA this year. Among them, the new XBA-Z5. It has a dual-BA + 1 dynamic configuration similar to the XBA-H3, but comes with newly developed transducers. To be honest, I am quite disappointed by the whole XBA-H1/H2/H3 series when I had a chance to demo them last years - finding them tuned in a very eccentric way and might not even consider an upgrade over the older models. While I really like the higher end full sized headphones Sony has made over the recent years (especially the MDR-1 series), their IEM remains far away from perfection. Let hopes the new Z5 can do better. No price has been mentioned yet.

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.
