Show Coverage Part 1

iBasso

For some reason we’ve always had a tough time getting iBasso samples for review, I wished iBasso would be at the show but unfortunately they were represented by enthusiastic volunteers from Head-Fi.

Actually we once were sent the IT03 for review but then it got ripped by the Turkish Fedex customs dpt and bye bye review. I’m still hoping to get the DX200 in for review one day, but probably by then iBasso will already have another new DAP on the market.

Kennerton

The Russian guys from Kennerton/Fischer audio are really nice. I actually met them in Munich already and we will be featuring both the old and new Odin headphone on Headfonia very soon.

Kennerton was exclusively using Auris Audio amplifiers and as I have the same setup at home, I can confirm this combination really shines. I really liked the new Odin which sounded more refined and more extended, especially in the treble region.

I should also try to get my hands on this little Kennerton amp one day. Kennerton also showed a new prototype headphone they’re working on with – and you better sit down – 18 drivers per side. Not only the driver count is impressive, the sound is too. Keep track of this one!

Another new headphone Kennerton is working on is an on-ear version that will be a lot cheaper than what you’re used too from Kennerton.

KUOS

KUOS is a new company with a new RealAmp product which they were presenting at the show. They only had two units at the show in a matte black enclosure but it will have a modern look when it’s finally finished. KUOS at the moment is trying to get the needed funds to go to production on Indiegogo, you can check out their campaign here.

The RealAmp also is a streaming device and I have to admit it sounded very promising. We’ll for sure be checking this out once it’s available.

LabKable

I have to say I’m not very familiar with this cable company and I didn’t learn a whole lot more when I was asking around about them.

It’s too bad I didn’t have enough time to listen to their different offerings, so maybe we’ll have to do an article on the line-up soon.

Meters

Who? Meters, yes those guys with the meters on the outside of the earcups.

I the darker ballroom they looked really nice though, I’ll give them that.

Lieven is living in Europe and he's the leader of the gang. Coming from a musical family he's always been interested in good sound. Unlike his family members the only musical instruments he plays are amps and DACs. He loves playing with old tubes and discovering new products while staying faithful to the good old Sennheiser HD650.

    That Sonoma System is the biggest disappointment i have listened to in the last 5 years. I had a chance to listen to this one at the HighEnd in Munich this year and it was a total letdown. Not only is the amp not capable of driving the headphone to a proper loud listening level, it also distorts really easy. I’m also glad that I am not the only one who thought about this one the way i did. What a waste of money.
