I have used the following equipment for listening purposes.
- Yulong DA10 and Resonessence Labs Concero HP as DAC and Amp
- Apple MacBook Pro Retina 2016 as a source
- Audirvana+ as a player
- Lotoo Paw Gold Touch, Astell&Kern A&ultima SP1000 and others as portable players
- Hi-Res recordings in Lossless-форматах (Dr. Chesky The Ultimate Headphone Demonstration Disc and others)
Before final listening the IEM’s have been burnt in for 48 hours with audible changes for the first 32 hours.
Overall presentation is what you expect from Pro-named IEMs. Those hybrids are closer to neutrality bot without monitor-like sound. If I needed to describe the sound in one word, I would chose — “lively”, especially if we speak about acoustic instruments and vocals. Overall they are very coherent and driver joints are barely audible.

Bass is not accentuated, IEMs don’t try to add it or accentuate it in any way, you just get what there is in the recording. Lows have good resolution and almost maximal depth, there is good control. The bass is universal here and can cope both with “Diesel Power” roars and “Zitto, Zitto” textures.
Mids have of course good resolution, we have balanced armature here. Two of them ensure that we get enough weight. Micro details are not accentuated but are played on a needed level. Macro details are good but without accentuating emotions — again you get what there is in recording. Due to good weight, both instruments and vocals sound weighty and realistic. Sound stage is significantly above average with good depth and width.
Highs are well balanced. They are not extremely lengthy so you will not find any problems with compressed tracks, but length is just enough to play almost all overtones and bring needed realism and volume. Highs have normal layering, slightly accelerated attacks and decays, as well as good resolution and weight. The amount of highs is good, they are not lacking but they still do not exceed comfort level, however if you are too treble-sensitive, you should still listen to them first.
To sum up, those are natural IEMs for those who value non-accentuated IEMs, be it bass or micro-details accent.
