The control center is located on the left side, house the microphone which is crystal clear during call, charging port and your typical 3 button array setup. I wished the tactile bump is slightly rise cause as its hard to feel them tho the button are nice and clicky.

The cable does touch the face a little, tho treblab also offer true wireless earbuds if you don’t like wires which we have reviewed in the past. Passive (hardware based) sound isolation is good as the sound tube goes deep into the ear canal.

Audio quality

EDM/POP/SYN:

Tiaan – Be Ok (Low bass frequency)
Low bass frequency is superbly energetic and highly notable, you can feel the air pressure booming in your ears. It doesn’t eat into the vocals and has zero bass distortion. The subtle bass vibration fades smoothly. Low bass frequency is well bodied. The low bass slightly overpower the vocals, just a tiny bit.

Pia Mia – Do It Again (standard bass)
Bass is superbly energetic and highly notable, you can feel the air pressure. The bass fades butter-smooth with a long drag especially at the 2:05 mark, the vibrations is just eargasm. Bass doesn’t overpower vocal much and feel somewhat balanced, clear separation between the two. Bass is well bodied. EDM tones sounds excited and fun.

with and without the earfins O.O

Vocals/Instrumentals:

Violinder – Raindrops (high frequency instrumental)
Piano/Violin tone sounds right and natural, leans closer to the crystal-clear type not the warm-sound, I prefer crystal-clear type. It has right amount of shine at the highs, little more would be nice. Tone are well bodied doesn’t sound half-hearted.
 Bass/Drums slightly overpowers the Piano/Violin in term of audible levels, tho there is clear separation between the two.

Pentatonix – See Through (Hi Frequency vocals/ Separation)
Mitch Grassi’s hi-pitched-male Tenor vocals perform very well at the highs with the right amount of shine, feels bright. Each singer can be identified easily. Every diction and pronunciation is crystal clear. Vocal beatboxing, echoing and humming is eargasm which doesn’t overpower Mitch Grassi’s vocal in the song. That’s good.

Foam vs Silicone eartips

This sport IEM performs well from the low bass frequency up to the hi frequency highly unusual for a sport based IEM where the market is dominated by bass heavy and muffled mid frequency. Treblab emphasizes on audio quality and that is important, I love that.
