Premium dual-driver hybrid setup for high-resolution sound
Open Audio Witch features a premium dual-driver hybrid setup consisting of a custom-developed dynamic driver and a custom-tuned balanced armature driver on each side. These two drivers deliver crisp, high-resolution sound with incredible clarity and detail across a wide frequency range.
2-way frequency division
To achieve high quality performance with minimal distortion, Witch uses a two-way physical frequency split arrangement for both driver units. The dynamic driver unit delivers quick, punchy, deep bass and rich mids, while the balanced armature driver delivers high-resolution detail in vocals, mids, and highs.
Transparent and natural sound
Open Audio Witch brings a full-bodied, powerful sound with deep bass, rich mids, and smooth highs. It complements a variety of genres with immersive sound and beautiful, crystal-clear vocals.
Easy to drive
Open Audio Witch is an easy to drive pair. Users can effortlessly enjoy the clarity of high-resolution music straight from their smartphones. With a low impedance of only 20 ohms, the device offers a high sensitivity of 110dB.
Ergonomic design and high quality silver plated cables
Open Audio Witch ear cavities are made with deep research based on a vast amount of ear sample data to provide a comfortable fit for most users. The cable is made of high-purity silver-plated copper wire and uses a standard 2-pin connector for easy connection. It also uses a 3.5mm termination plug for universal connectivity.
The one I borrowed from the manufacturer this time is not the official package, so I give it a rating of 7.5.
The full version comes in a package with a cute picture of a witch.

Sound quality general comment
The Open Audio Witch is supposed to be the maiden product of Open Audio, but it can be said to sound like a cheapo, as is often the case with bubble manufacturers. The sound is reminiscent of the early days of Chinese earphones just 10 years ago, and in terms of sound quality, it is not a model that one would pay 10,000 yen for. The specs are lacking, and the tuning is at a level that audiophiles with even the slightest ear for detail would criticize harshly, and it really isn't good.
Fortunately, I have already reviewed the Alkaid from the same brand and know that Open Audio's sound has rapidly refined since Witch.
As such, we do not recommend Witch if you have heard of Open Audio's excellent reputation and are considering it as an entry-level device.
Sound quality features
- Sound field with a sense of depth
- Elegant and chic
- Low distortion
- Nostalgic and sweet sound
- Lack of high frequency extension
- Muddy and difficult to understand midrange
- Insufficient resolution
- Unnatural texture
The Open Audio Witch is an earphone with a heavy donkey sound. The build quality is not bad, and the distortion ratio and other measurements indicate that they are probably made of materials that are worth the price. However, the tuning is simply not good, and we do not recommend them.
