    Meze Advar.
    Unboxing. Very nice decorative box which well protects the contents. Upon opening the shells are displayed in a black velvet covered foam tray, which lifts out to reveal the hard-shelled travel case, and a booklet, which to be honest I haven’t looked at so something you can check out when you buy the set! Inside the case there is the MMCX cable (adequate), a set of Final Type E tips (great) and a rather excellent tool for releasing your MMCX cable from the shells. The shells themselves are stunning, black and bronze design, and have a good weight even though they are small in size. To get a good seal I had to use the ML tips rather than my usual M size.
    Sound? I’m 68year-old rocker who has spent too many misspent nights at loud concerts! I listen to melodic hard rock, metal & Berlin style electronic (Tangerine Dream etc.) and I try to find IEMs that cater for that style of music. OK I’ll admit it, I’m a bit of a ‘basshead’; I do like a good bass thump. Which brings me round to the Advars. When I first plugged these in and went to my usual ‘test tracks’ I found them to be a bit thin and lacking in that thump that I like. Anyway, I swapped out the cable for a 4.4mm plug (Kinera Leyding) and as mentioned earlier changed the tip size to better the seal, plugged into my iFi Zen amp and increased the gain and WOW. Give these a bit of power and the bass is all there; not overpowering like some sets but certainly present when required. The mids are well represented, but it has to be said the treble is about as bright as I personally can tolerate, being a bit sensitive to high pitched sounds. I’m sure most of you readers will think they are light and airy though, and as everybody’s ears are different, I won’t argue. I should also mention that because of the small shell size, the Advars are one of the most comfortable IEMs I have ever bought.
    Good value for money? Again, relative I guess. After 6 hours of listening to music and a film (the latest Spiderman in 4K) I’m well pleased with my purchase. I’m told that they improve with use and should have a 50 hr ‘burn-in’ to start really getting the best from them. Thanks to Richard at Audiologica for the excellent service as usual.

    These were recommended by Richard. They are excellent quality in-ear headphones. These are solid little units that fit comfortably in my ears. They sound great; an amazingly big sound from such small units.

    I ordered these a couple of days ago and they were delivered today. Superb IEMs, I’ve been listening to them through my Ifi Hip DAC 3 through the 4.4mm balanced output. They’re crystal clear with a lovely warm voice . They are beautifully packaged and a work of art. Richard is great and was asking yesterday if they had been delivered. They hadn’t as Royal Mail don’t seem to take much notice of Special Delivery any more. However well worth the wait. I thoroughly recommend Audiologica and will probably be doing business with them again in the future

    Brilliant IEMs clear and crisp treble and mid range with a good mid bass and bass response. The advantage of single drivers is no crossover and therefore seamless audio.
    Audiologica are great and a joy to do business with. Thoroughly recommended.
