AUDIO QUALITY

Audio Quality test performed on the Samsung S10e.

POP/EDM:
Tiaan – Be Ok (Low bass frequency – 4th Volume)
Low bass frequency is highly energetic and notable, you can feel the air pressure movement in your ears. Low bass frequency has no distortion. The subtle bass vibrations fade well. The low bass does overpower the vocals slightly in terms of audible levels, though the vocals are not muffled.

Pia Mia – Do It Again (Standard bass – 5th Volume )
Bass has great energy and notable. The bass fades smoothly at the 2:05 mark which I do enjoy, the vibrations has some presence. The bass slightly overpowered the vocals slightly but the vocals are not muffled. EDM tones are alive and excited.

Vocals/Instrumentals :
Violinder – Raindrops (High frequency instrumental – 5th volume)
The Piano/Violin tone sounds decent and lean towards the crystal-clear type and not the warm sounding type, though I prefer crystal-clear type. There is a great amount of shine at the highs. The Bass/Drums does not overpower the Piano/Violin in terms of audible levels, and the Piano/Violin combinations take center stage often while Bass/Drum becomes background support.

Pentatonix – See Through (High pitch vocal/separation – 5th volume)
Mitch Grassi’s High-pitched-male Tenor vocals perform great at the highs, with the right amount of shine. Each singer can be identified easily. Every diction and pronunciation is crystal clear. Vocal beatboxing, echoing and humming is great and does not overpower Mitch Grassi’s vocals in the song. Mitch Grassi vocal takes center stage especially at the 0:45 mark.

FINAL VERDICT

I’m rather shocked actually, as this wireless IEM performs well from the low-mids to high range making it a great wireless IEM for vocal or instrumental songs above the industry standard where bass becomes a norm. This IEM does forfeit some bass energy in favor for clear mids to high range. I like it this way.
