(Chi-fi IEM Review) Tripowin x HBB Olina: Very good texture representation, high resolution and speaker-like forward localization. Very good earphones that completely transcend the price.

Sound quality description

In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.


The Tripowin x HBB Olina has a gentle V-shaped sound that is fairly close to neutral. The highs are tuned to deliver speaker-like forward localization, and the midrange has near-perfect texture and excellent structure, so three-dimensionality is assured. Resolution is also high, and harmonic distortion is kept low, well above the price level. In a word, a very good earphone.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: A+
  • Recommendation: S+
  • Personal preference: S+


The Tripowin x HBB Olina is one of the best earphones you can get in under $100 range, and in terms of audio specs, it's hard to find a better model at a higher price point.


The higher priced Moondrop Starfield seems to be the closest competitor. Perhaps because of the similarity in driver materials and construction, the acoustics tend to be similar, but the Olina offers a more three-dimensional and structured sound, while the Starfield is generally more smoothly tuned. Since they are nearly equal, it is a close call as to which is better, but my recommendation is the Olina.
