Wall of Shame (coming soon)
Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Since its establishment in 2005, NuForce of USA has been building a great reputation as an audiophile equipment manufacturer by offering a wide range of products, from a high-end Class-D amplifier to a small portable speaker. And in March of 2014, order to accommodate the specific needs of the audiophiles who rather prefer portability, the Californian company finally launches its first multi-balanced armature transducer driven IEM, Primo 8.
Not to mention its quad-driver configuration, according to the manufacturer, Primo 8 comes with two key innovations: A special patent-pending cross-over network design, which offers phase coherence throughout the frequency spectrum, and a multi-layered star shaped Litz cable joined with a MMCX connector.

It is generally known that a new pair of headphones must go through a "warming up(aka break-in)" phase for a certain period of time before it opens up its true sonic potential. Previously, both electroacoustic and psychoacoustic aspects of a 100 hours-long headphone break-in have been presented with SONY MDR-EX1000(electrodynamic microtransducer), Sennheiser HD650(Full-sized electrodynamic), Fostex T50RP(isodynamic), and VSonic VC02(smallest microtransducer) The physical transformation is evident in all cases, yet its degree is not of a night and day difference, as audiophiles normally describe it.
