The Brainwavz R3

The idea of a universal IEM with multiple drivers definitely isn’t new. The shift began a little less than a decade ago with dual balanced armatures like the Shure E4C and Ultimate Ears Super.fi 5 Pro. Then cam...

The Momentum On Ear From Sennheiser

Last year I rated the Sennheiser Momentum in my top 10 headphones for 2012. Plush design, excellent build quality, exciting new direction by Sennheiser and a decent sound that if not world beating in audiophile...
