NEW RELEASES 19/02/2023 – 05/03/2023


New IEM from KZ stables. In the housing, you’ll find a 10mm dual cavity dynamic driver. Diagraphm is about 5 microns thick. You can choose either black or silver housing. Priced at 21 USD.


In-ear monitor that is just like the one above also uses a thin diaphragm. In both cases, it’s about 5 microns. Impedance of 14 ohms and sensitivity of 110dB. Priced just like the sibling, so 21 USD.

Tangzu X See Audio Shiminli

A collaboration between Tangzu and See Audio in-ear monitor. That seems to use the nonmodified Shiminli housing but painted in red colour. Retail of 50 USD. Other than that there’s not much known about it at this point.

FiiO JD7

IEM that at first glance uses FA7S’s semi-open shell made of stainless steel. Inside you’ll find a single dynamic driver with a diameter of 10mm that has been dual-layered. It has an impedance of 32 ohms and a sensitivity of 108dB/mW. Asking price of 78USD

SeekReal Dawn Pro

Same shell and driver configuration (10x14mm square planar driver and one balanced armature per side). Comes with adjusted tuning and a 250USD price tag.

FiR Radon 6

Anniversary model that’s been limited to 300 units. Uses the same driver configuration as FiR Xenon 6 so a single 10mm dynamic driver, 4 balanced armatures and a single electrostatic driver. If that’s something you’re looking for prepare to be charged 3300 USD for these.


Closed-back planar headphones with stealth magnets. They come with an impedance of 20 ohms with a sensitivity of 97dB and a weight of 470 grams. To snag these you’ll have to put 2000 USD on the table.

Dan Clark Audio Corina

Dan Clark’s reference electrostatic headphone that houses a 88mm driver. The headphones weigh 465 grams and are priced at 4500 USD.

iKKO ActiveBuds

True wireless earbuds that have a 1.8″ AMOLED touchscreen on the charging case. ANC is included as well as Bluetooth 5.3. It even has SIM and E-SIM card slots which let you use GPS. IPX4 water resistance is also included. Up to 6 hours of playback with active noise cancellation enabled. The price is still to be determined.

FiiO Q11

This portable DAC/Amp combo is equipped with a CS43198 DAC chip. It manages to output up to 650mW of power. It packs a 2600mAh battery and 3.5mm plus 4.4mm outputs. As you’d usually expect two gain stages. Price tag of 90 USD.

XDUOO Link2 Bal Max

“Maximized” version of Link2 Bal. This version provides more power out of single-ended connection – 200mW at 32ohms while it was 125mW previously. Balanced power output stays at 270mW at 32ohms load. Connectivity is another thing that did not change – there are 3.5mm and 4.4mm outputs. The DAC chip is CS43131 so no change there either. What changed however is the amplification chip from TI LM27762 to TI TPS65133. Comes with a new green colour variant. Priced at 149 USD.


DAC/AMP combo in tower-like shaped housing. On the front of the device, you’ll find 6.3mm single-ended along with four-pin balanced XLR connectors and two three-pin XLR on the back (L/R). To connect to the source you can choose either RCA, USB-B or USB-C which are also allocated on the back. Maximum output power is rated at 5.12W at 32 ohms from balanced output and 1.8W at 32 ohms from the single-ended output. Cost of 800 USD.
