Who am I:
I am Piotr Granicki, owner of Custom Art – a Polish custom IEM company. I manage the company and I’m responsible for tuning the sound of our monitors. I also do some lab work, especially with silicone monitors.
I would have to say Juggernaut: Omega. This album is both heavy and melodic with some great songs.
It’s almost impossible for me to choose only one, really, but I’m going to say The Bad Thing. It has great guitar work with lots of dissonance, weighty vocals and constantly changing pace which keeps you engaged and focused.
On the go I listen from my HTC 10, currently paired with a prototype FIBAE (Flat Impedance Balanced Armature Earphone) technology IEM. I try to carry in my pockets as little as possible so I don’t really use external amplifiers and DAPs for commute listening.
At office we use Dynaudio BM5A MKII paired with Fast Track sound card. They are great active monitors with sweeter/warmer midrange than you typically hear from studio speakers it makes them great for just playing music as they don’t force you to focus on details.
