Oriolus Szalayi - Review by The Vagrant Audiophile

Oriolus Szalayi - "the brown oriole".

Hmmmm, actually this one is blue. 😅 Boar doesn't matter, he can sing - just like his big brothers and sisters from Oriolus! And it is something very special: A trybrid of planar, dynamic driver and balanced armature.

Our guest author The Vagrant Audiophile took a closer look at the Szalayi, pronounced "Sally", and his trained ears.

Szalayi impressions

by The Vagrant Audiophile (retired)

Cost - 5/5

For the money you get what is probably one of the best IEMs available today for around $1000-2000 - along with a truly fantastic cable - from a recognized boutique brand that is on the fringes of the mainstream but known for their masterful tuning ( again) is known.

Comfort - 3/5

I have to accept that I get along better with small IEM nozzles. 🤷🏼♂️

Compared to the Isabellae, which I struggled with both for nozzle width and length, the Szalayi were unfortunately a problem for me because of their thick nozzle size. So... if thick nozzles have never been a problem for you, the rating jumps to 4/5 or 5/5.

Tuning - 4/5

The Szalayi offer impressive technical balance while presenting a rich, musical sound - a tuning that which clearly suits my preferences. For a 3 driver IEM the Szalayi is extremely coherent, more coherent than some "only" two driver I've heard in the past. However, they require a good seal.
