(ANC Wireless headphones Review) OneOdio SuperEQ S1: A punchy low range that is typical of One Odio. Lively music echoes in a deep sound field. ANC performance is also sufficient.

The OneOdio SuperEQ S1 is OneOdio's signature ANC wireless headphone that packs a punch, the ANC performance is up to the standard of the price, the communication quality is stable, and the hear-through is not bad. It's a little hard to sa…

(True Wireless Earbuds Review) UGREEN HiTune T2: When the fit is well adjusted, the sound is warm and well-balanced, suitable for pop music. A leading AirPods replacement candidate

The UGREEN HiTune T2 is a completely wireless earphone with a sound that combines a moderate sense of detail with a warm and comfortable mildness. The downside is that the fit is a bit unsteady, and the low frequency range changes a lot de…

(True Wireless Earbuds Review) TaoTronics SoundLiberty 80: For people who want earphones that are different from others. Beautiful sharp and stylish design. Rich harmonic sound, but not for everyone.

The TaoTronics SoundLiberty 80 is not a product that comes high on my list of recommendations. Even though it has a sharp and futuristic design, the sound is dull and has a nostalgic tone that seems very gentle, even somewhat conservative.…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer Conductor: Quite faithful and well-balanced to the Harman target curve, and has the sound image rendering power typical of electrostatic types, but it is a regrettable work that is a bit lacking in micro-detail and atmosphere.

The Shuoer Conductor is characterized by good tuning, almost faithful to the Herman target curve, and extremely high quality high frequencies characteristic of the electrostatic type. And the sense of balance is also quite excellent.

(Monitor IEM Review) ULTRASONE Saphire: Earphones with speaker-like forward localization staging and vocal-centric midrange for careful listening. Electrostatic tweeters provide a quiet yet delicate sound.

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer EJ09: Informative, fine-grained, high-detail and high-definition monitor sound. It will be the highest level companion for those who want to enjoy music analytically

To be honest, I've never really seen much value in high-end earphones. My music listening was good enough with cheaper earphones, and they even had better monitoring capabilities than high-end earphones, so I had no need to pay more than $…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer EJ07: Fairly faithful to the free-field flat and highly transparent midrange. Wide localization and sound field with depth and low listening fatigue.

The Shuoer EJ07 has a sound that is almost faithful to the flats, with a high level of overall original sound fullness and a natural texture in the midrange. The sound field is slightly localized in the back, which gives a sense of spaciou…

(Monitor IEM Review) SHURE AONIC 4: Earphones that maintain a warm listening experience while also rendering details beautifully. Lack of consistency in the midrange and lack of high frequencies are the main drawbacks.

To be frank, the SHURE AONIC 4 is a difficult model for me personally. The only good things about it are the fit and sound insulation, and that's about it. The sound quality is inconsistent in the midrange, the localization sounds a bit in…

(Chi-fi IEM Review) SeeAudio Yume: Well-balanced sound quality with Harman target in mind. Deep low frequencies give music a solid sense of reality.

(Chi-fi IEM Review) Shuoer Singer: Singing earphones that are quite faithful to the free field flat, but with a little more weight in the midrange. Overall package perfection is also high.

The Shuoer Singer is one of the most complete earphones you can buy in this price range in terms of sound quality, flat and suitable for everyone. The nozzle filter is prone to loosening, and the workmanship could use a little more precisi…

The 1more Comfobuds Pro is a completely wireless earphone for audiophiles that is relatively faithful to the established studio tuning style of the Harman Target. The sound quality tends to be a bit lacking in the low frequency range and a…
