Eartips/Earfins

The ear-fins and eartips are one piece where they perform well for high intense movement like rock climbing and running at full speed like a road runner. It does look good on me design wise, as it has a flat profile unlike many options in the market where the look like magical beans growing out from your ears.

The battery pack is located on the left side. The controller is located on the right side that houses the charging port, microphone and the typical 3 buttons array. Each button has a tactile bump for easy identification plus the buttons are easy to actuate. Sound isolation is good as the sound tube travel deep into the ear canal where it measures at 0.8cm.

AUDIO QUALITY

Audio Quality test performed on the Iphone 6.

POP/EDM:

Tiaan – Be Ok (Low bass frequency)
The 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. The low bass frequency is well bodied. However, the low bass does slightly overpowers the vocals by a tiny bit.

Pia Mia – Do It Again (Standard bass)
The bass is energetic and firm, you can feel the air pressure. The bass does fades quickly especially at the 2:05 mark, the vibrations is a tad soft. The bass doesn’t overpowers the vocals much and feel balanced, there is a clear separation between the two. The bass is well bodied and EDM tones sounds fun.

Magnetic end

Vocals/Instrumentals :
Violinder – Raindrops (High frequency instrumental)
The piano/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 highs, just right on. The tones are well bodied and it doesn’t sound half-hearted.
 The bass/drums does overpower the piano/violin in term of audible levels by a small margin. There is clear separation between the two.

Pentatonix – See Through (High frequency vocals/ vocal separation)
Mitch Grassi’s hi-pitched-male Tenor vocals performs very well at the highs with the right amount of shine, it feels bright. Each singer can be identified easily. Every diction and pronunciation is crystal clear. Vocal beatboxing, echoing and humming is an eargasm. It does not overpowers Mitch Grassi’s vocal in the song.

FINAL VERDICT

The HUAWEI sport IEM performs well from the low bass frequency up to the high frequency but its core strength lies within the mids to highs with a good clarity. Quite a shocker, usually phone brands produce random low grade audio hardware at expensive price but this is not the case for HUAWEI sport headphone.
