The fit is good.

Sound quality description
In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.
KBEAR Storm has a V-shaped sound signature.
Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.
Lows / Bass
The low frequency range of the KBEAR Storm is generous and massive, with thickness and weight. Depth is lacking.
The bass drum has plenty of heft, but you don't hear much rumble. Some parts sound full and expansive. It's easy to hear it as somewhat boomy and bouncy.
I feel the electric bass is not bad in blackness, but it lacks tightness and has a strong sense of hush and heat.
There is enough volume to satisfy bass lovers, but qualitatively it will not satisfy heavy bass enthusiasts.
The midrange of the KBEAR Storm is close to neutral, but is in a darker position in the overall sound and sounds a bit cramped.
Texture is fairly accurate, but the midrange sounds in a slightly darker position. The upper midrange to mid-highs are emphasized, giving the glossiness a bit more intensity.
Vocals have a darker, yet slightly upper and flirtatious tone, sounding slightly husky, and consonants are a little more pronounced in their articulation. The vocals have a weak axis and in some songs tend to sound buried in the instrumental sound.
Transparency is high enough and resolution is not bad.
Highs / Treble
The highs are tuned for definition and are not buried in detail, and the delicacy is quite solid, but the extension is quite lackluster.
The highs are well balanced by the strength of the lows, with enough luminosity to compensate for the somewhat low luminosity of the mids. Cymbal crashes are not bad in terms of subtlety and detail, but they lack quite a bit of extension and are not quite exhilarating enough. There's also a blatant ceiling to the woodwinds and violins, which sounds a bit diminutive.
Sound quality general comment
- Original Sound Fidelity: A
- Recommendation: B+
- Personal preference: B
The KBEAR Storm has a typical consumer-like sound and is not really audiophile-friendly. In the same price range, KZ has a much more audiophile-friendly product, so there seems to be no need to buy Storm.

The KBEAR Storm is IEMs that has a V-shaped signature. It is underpriced in terms of audio specs, but the tuning is consumer-like, and the overall quality of the earphones seems much less complete than the KZ and CCA earphones in the same price range.
