Wow.....

Sound quality is superb

M
Mohd Shakil Ansari (Lucknow)
Audiophile sound

Perfect iem for critical listening with very controlled and genuine bass (very little to no sub bass or sub bass rumble), lush/clean/forward vocals. Treble is where this iem shines with high end sparkle. Sound is somewhat thin at higher frequency. No sibilance or high frequency harshness is observed. Crystal clear sound quality with above average soundstage. If you are a bass head you may not like it. For bass you may opt kz zsx.
Build quality is awesome and fit is perfect with right tips though little on larger side. I had to change the tips to that of soundcore liberty 2 pro tws tips and stock cable to tripowin zonie. Paired this iem with ibasso dc 03 which took the music to a different level.

Thanks a ton for sharing your review with us.

Just avaerge

I purchased this in ear phone in black Friday sale. Even though the volume of sound is abundant, the quality of sound is not balanced. It lacks bass. Bass is just average and not deep. Mids and highs are of quality one. It is too much over priced compared to its sound quality. I got duped by its huge discount. I feel, I have lost my hard earned money.
