This is Edifier’s wireless IEM (actually an earphone with long earbud as sound tube) in a flexible neckband form factor featuring IPX5 water resistance and magnetic ends. The package comes included with a charging cable and 3 pair of ear tips. I wished it came with a soft carrying pouch. The ear fins are one piece with every ear tips but it does perform well for gym activities and slow pace walking. The neckband does dangle around during running, it is advisable to just walk.

The controller is located on the right side and it houses the charging port, microphone and the typical 3 array buttons. The buttons does have a tactile bump and are easy to navigate. The sound isolation is decent but it can be better if they made the ear tips long so it can enter deep into the ear canal.

Audio quality

POP/EDM:

Tiaan – Be OK (Low bass frequency)

The low bass frequency has a good energy and feels firm, 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 vibrations fades a little too quick. Although it should be noted that the low bass slightly overpower the vocals.

Pia Mia – Do It Again (standard bass)

The bass has decent energy and has presence. The bass fade smoothly at the 2:05 mark but the vibrations is a little soft for my taste. The bass doesn’t overpower vocal much and it feel balanced, clear separation between the two. Bass is well bodied. EDM tones sounds fun.

Vocals/Instrumentals:

Violinder – Raindrops (high frequency instrumental)

The piano and violin tone sounds right and natural, it leans closer to the crystal-clear type not the warm-sound, personally I prefer crystal-clear type. It has right amount of shine at the high and the tones are well bodied doesn’t sound half-hearted.
 The bass and drums slightly overpowers the piano and violin in term of audible levels, but there is clear distinction between the two.

Pentatonix – See Through (high frequency vocals/ vocal separation)

Mitch Grassi’s hi-pitched-male Tenor vocals perform really well at the highs frequency with the right amount of shine, it feels bright. Each singer can be identified easily. Every diction and pronunciation sounds crystal clear. The vocal beat-boxing, echoing and humming is eargasm which doesn’t overpower Mitch Grassi’s vocal in the song.

FINAL VERDICT

The IEMs performs well from mid to high range easily, great for vocals and instrumentals. The bass is fine but not booming enough for bass heads, this IEMs is suitable for the people with refine taste. Essentially, this is identical to the Edifier W285BT in term of audio quality.
