Sound quality general comment
The FloAudio CALLA is a fairly well-made listening earphone in this price range. It has low distortion, which is rare even at the high end, and accurate midrange texture. However, unlike competitors in the same price range such as Tripowin Lea, Moondrop CHU, 7Hz Salnotes ZERO, and Tripowin Mele, it is focused on more comfortable listening and does not emphasize midrange reproduction as much as they do.
Rather, CALLA is an earphone set that successfully creates a comfortable mood for listening to music. Yet CALLA is by no means a model that emphasizes low-resolution sound or warmth too much, as is common in listening models, and overall it maintains a level of resolution that is above the price level and comparable to high-end models overall.
If you are looking for a low-cost listening model that offers high-end-level audio specs but still sounds elegant and mellow, the CALLA is definitely a worthy candidate.

FloAudio touted the CALLA's sound as being on the same level of performance as high-priced earphones, and in fact, that claim is almost true. They sound very low distortion and more rewarding to listen to than most models with a price tag of $100 or more.
Of course, that does not mean that there is no competition in the same price range; there are many excellent earphones in the same price range as the CALLA, including the Tripowin Lea, Moondrop CHU, Tripowin Mele, and 7Hz Salnotes ZERO, and CALLA is not necessarily superior, at least in terms of sound balance and clarity. Still, it has a deep bass and a deep soundstage that sets it apart from the competition, and its comfortable, dignified sound makes the CALLA special.
