  1. My Bloody Valentine - Loveless (Remastered)
  2. What a tune. One of my very favourites. Remember that it was a pain to mix as it had such a short intro so you had to be quick with the xfader or have the mix with the keyboard intro right at the start of the mix
  3. Boards of Canada - Tomorrow's Harvest (Flac)
  4. As with a lot of things in life, more expensive doesn't necessarily equate to something being better, something I found with the oppo ha2 se which I hated despite it costing 100quid more than the dfr and both containing ess dacs. As for the iems, I agree that fit is crucial. I always hated the apple phones when for that reason and was much happier when I moved onto the sony MDR ex650 which were about £50 at the time. They were a much better fit and the difference in the sq was immediate. In terms of the difference between these and the heaven v's , I auditioned the latter with songs that I had listened to a lot during my commute and so knew really well. Across most of the songs (the only exception being Paul Simon -graceland), more detail, more "air"around vocals and percussion and more accurate placement of sounds in their own acoustic spaces. As I say above, they were a little bright but in combination with the dfr, the brightness was tamed with good results.
  5. Thanks for the recommendation. I ended up going for the final Audio heaven v aging. Felt really comfy in the ears and sounded great, adding space and depth to the sound. They are a little bright but i also went for the dragonfly red which brought the top end back a little and filled out the bass nicely. The dfr and iems really compliment each other. I really liked the mojo but in the end, the weight and the bulk of the mojo added to my s7 was a little too much for me. It's a great product though and I still may plump for one in the future
