    “ This Euclid is a planar IEM that gives off some of that golden zone tonality in the vocal experience, it is so slick and smooth, so perfectly balanced in the signature that it feels semi-electrostatic in nature.”

    “ This is not an overwhelmingly bassy IEM, it is very elegant sounding and hyper smooth, like the side of a slick glass piece sculpture.” WTF????

    99% of publication reviews are bullshit. Just like that statistic I pulled from my ass.

    There's some comedy value in British hifi magazines whose shtick is to give examples of how a piece of music sounds through a component that's under review. The music's typically obscure - the reviewer being the great connoisseur - and the accompanying description's invariably flowery but meaningless:

    This for the Andro in hifi+:

    "A track that highlights the Andromeda’s strengths is Dead Can Dance’s ‘Anabasis’ from In Concert [PIAS America, 16/44.1], which is an extremely well-made live recording of the famous electro-acoustic ensemble led by Lisa Gerard and Brendan Perry.

    This is what turned me off..."For now, the stock cable is just good overall, I’d have preferred something a little more provoking in an artistic manner but maybe I am asking too much, all things considered." Yes dumbass, you are!

    The stock tips spoke of a lugubriousness and a deep rooted ennui, reminiscent of post-war France - swap them out!
