iClever Boostcare - Budget Endgame Headphone Kings!

iClever Boostcare is a brand I would have normally overlooked, but I got a hot tip that these would be the new budget audiophile endgame. I was pretty skeptical given how many times this claim is made a year but ended up pleasantly surprised!

Gear Used – iFi Pro iDSD, Pro iCan, Pro iESL, iClever Boost Care

Build & Comfort – Food. Grade. Silicone. That’s right, sound is not the only thing delicious about these. Should the sound be so good that you just must take a bite, you can! No adverse effects. These are well built and durable. The high-quality spring steel in the silicone covered headband means accidental drops will not ruin your 12-dollar investment. The pink protein leather earmuffs have an almost unnatural spring to them that leave your ears in maximum comfort through your entire listening session.

Sound – Now this is where I had to check and make sure someone didn’t switch these on me while I wasn’t looking. You MUST take a look at how these measure. The treble has the most ethereal and comforting sparkle. It’s relaxed while maintaining a ton of detail, trading shots with SIXTEEN HUNDRED DOLLAR headphones like the Hifiman Arya. I was truly amazed. Mids were very chill. Soothing particularly in the lower region. These are truly come home from work, kick off your shoes, and just relax headphones. iClever manages to pull out planar-like bass from a driver that can’t be any larger than a dime. It’s linear, true to life, and just plan slaps!

Conclusion – Did I mention these were TWELVE DOLLARS?! Don’t even both auditioning. Just buy em. Buy a backup pair. Buy a pair for your friends, family, kids, pets… etc. JUST BUY THEM ALL! I mean I would literally invest half my saving in iClever stock at this point. These are going to dominate the market! Don’t be the guy that misses out just because you were skeptical of some dude on reddit. THE HYPE IS REAL!

E.A.R.S. Measurements available at my site as always.

when my ATH-M10 dies I'm getting these, and I might as well get a DAC to fully enjoy them. Any recommendations for a $12 DAC for these $12 headphones?


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

I don't think any dac/amp built with modern tech is truly capable. We are just not ready for these things. Hell.... even my $6,000 stack can't fully bring out the gloriousness.

Though I did find this $12 end-game worth gem.
