Review: Dunu DN-1000

Dunu | In-Ear Monitor | $ 215.00

Banner1

Dunu has always been one of my favorite brands when it came to affordable IEMs because they are a company that always uses top notch materials and mix in there a design that is shiny and gorgeous.  The Dunu DN-1000 is their first step past the midrange marking their 200+ dollar entry into their lineup.  It marries a dynamic driver with twin balanced armatures for bass and mids/highs respectively.   (more…)

Review: id America Cushi Case

id America | Case | $ 19.95

Banner1

There are three main reasons to purchase a case.  The first is for protection, the original reason to get a case, protect your 600+ dollar device from damage.  The second is for some sort of convenience; a built in battery, kickstand, etc. can come in handy at times.  The third is design.  Although id America doesn’t focus on the last one with their Cushi case, they do put some thought into the second…  But it’s the third reason that would cause you to want one of these.  (more…)

Review: Brainwavz Delta

Brainwavz | In-Ear Monitor | $ 22.50

Banner1

Brainwavz has always been one of my go-to companies when it came to affordable headphones and audio gear.  Recently, Brainwavz has come out with quite a few new IEMs, one that took the slot right below flagship, one midrange (for them), and then there is the delta, coming in towards the low-priced spectrum.  The Brainwavz Delta still proves to not only be stylish, but sound good while at it.  (more…)

Review: MEElectronics Atlas

MEElectronics | On-Ear Headphone | $ 99.99

With the new Atlas, the headphone MEElectronics dubs “the next headphone”, MEE incorporates a slew of technologies, old and new, into a pair of headphones.  The in-mold label (IML) printing methods and technology employed allow the headphones to standout in design while the multi-layering due to this technique makes them feel great.  Vented pads tune the sound and add comfort.  Speaking of sound, though, these really just sound great.  (more…)

Review: Designed by M AeroSpace Bumper

Designed by M | Bumper Case | $ 59.99

A couple years back, Apple introduced a new form of cases, bumpers.  Originally designed for the 4/4S, the bumper case was a minimalistic design that surrounded the iPhone but didn’t cover up the design queues set by Sir Ive.  Designed by M decided to go out and make their own bumper case, this one made out of aluminum to match the design of the iPhone.  From an aesthetic standpoint, it’s a beautiful case.   (more…)
