BLOG #102. headfonia.com Just Published a Super Thorough Review of Our (most twisted) StereoPravda SPearphone SB-3.5RU
The most daring of all headfonia.com just published a super thorough review of our (most twisted) StereoPravda SPearphone SB-3.5RU.
To quote: “…The StereoPravda SB-3.5 RU like its brothers will never win a beauty contest or get an award for comfort but the SB-3.5 RU isn’t about that. Misha’s “No pain, no Gain” philosophy is what it is but if you can handle that you can be sure to get a very nice and unique high-end sounding IEM with a sound signature you’ve never heard before. A fine example of a technical masterpiece”.
Happy New Year!    All the best in 2022!

BLOG #99. StereoPravda Will Unveil Its Newest Earphone Model At The Moscow Hi Fi & High End Show-2021
At the Moscow hi Fi & High End Show (May 21st-23rd, hotel Borodino) StereoPravda will unveil its newest model -StereoPravda SPearphone SB-3.5RU.

“RU” – within its various possible implications – actually stands in its name for “Ripped Up”. We “rip up” one of the BA-drivers, that is, we opened it as a tin can, so we can use its direct sound radiation (as opposed to the nominal bellows-type BA-drivers sound radiation) and also to position the driver’s sound radiation ON AXIS with the tympanic membrane’s sonic response...

BLOG #90. Congratulations to Stephen Ambrose!
Six degrees of separation is the idea that all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. Also known as the 6 Handshakes rule.
In this case - between Brian Johnson of AC/DC and me - it's just two.

My most sincere congratulations to Stephen Ambrose of Asius Technologies for helping Brian to overcome his hearing loss!

I collaborated with Stephen on some new developments for the StereoPravda SPearphone project (which ones I can't tell yet as I' m under NDA).

Stephen's endorsement segment in this Brian Johnson's interview – the link is here - starts at 5:10. Read more…
