This is Treblab’s wireless sport IEM, it is a flexible neckband featuring IPX5 meaning it’s sweat and water resistant. The earbuds features magnetic ends as well. The package comes included with a charging cable, 3 pair of ear-fins and 6 pair of ear-tips (3 silicone and 3 foam). The foam ear-tips, the ear-fins and the neckband perform (surprisingly) well for high intense movement. Latest pricing here Amazon/Shopee/Lazada.

The control center is located on the left side and it houses the microphone which is crystal clear during the call, charging port and your typical 3 button array setup. I wished the tactile bump is slightly higher because I find it hard to pinpoint the button but it should be noted that the button are nice and has a clicky sound.

The cable does touch the face a little, tho Treblab also sells a true wireless earbuds if you don’t prefer to use the wires. The passive (hardware based) sound isolation is good as the sound tube goes deep into the ear canal for a good listening experience.

AUDIO QUALITY

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. The low bass does not eat into the vocals and has zero bass distortion. The subtle bass vibrations fade smoothly and the low bass frequency is well bodied. The low bass slightly overpower the vocals, just a tiny bit.

Pia Mia – Do It Again (Standard bass)
The bass is superbly energetic and highly notable, you can feel the air pressure booming. The bass fade butter-smooth with a long drag especially at the 2:05 mark, the vibrations is just an eargasm.  The bass doesn’t overpower vocal much and it feels somewhat balanced. There is a clear separation between the two and the bass is well bodied, not to mention the EDM tones sounds exciting and fun.

Vocals/Instrumentals:
Violinder – Raindrops (High frequency instrumental)
The piano/violin tone sounds right and natural, the tone leans closer to the crystal-clear type not the warm-sound, which I prefer. It has right amount of shine at the high frequency. The tone are well bodied it doesn’t sound half-hearted.
 One thing that should be noted is that the bass/drums slightly overpowers the piano/violin sound in term of audible levels, but 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 high frequency with the right amount of shine, it feels bright. Each singer can be identified easily and every diction and pronunciation is crystal clear. The vocal beat-boxing, echoing and humming is eargasm which does not overpower Mitch Grassi’s vocal in the song which is great!

FINAL VERDICT

Calvinpixels.com | Calvin Pixels | Treblab N8 Review | Wireless Neckband Sport Earbuds
foam ear-tips and silicone ear-tips

This Treblab N8 performs really well from the low bass frequency up to the high frequency. This is highly unusual for a sport based IEM where the market is dominated by bass heavy and muffled mid frequency quality IEMs. Treblab emphasizes on audio quality which is great for those who is very keen about the audio quality.
