Build quality

The building quality of BLON MINI is more than worth the price. The seams have a little bit of glue that has leaked and coagulated, but it's not noticeable.

Sound quality

The BLON MINI has relatively good mid to high frequencies, and can be expected to sound quite reliable in terms of localization. However, the midrange is a bit tight and the overall soundstage lacks a bit of extension. They also have a tendency to emphasize high-pitched and metallic sound tendencies, making them seem like peaky earphones, especially for those who listen to music at high volume. On the other hand, the beauty is that you can expect high clarity even at low volume.

Sound quality general comment
  • Original sound fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: A-
  • Personal preference: C+

 

The BLON MINI is a relatively well-made earphone with excellent localization, but the downside is that when the volume is turned up, it easily sounds high-pitched and metallic, sometimes making the music sound like a scream.

 

It's not bad if you like high-pitched sounds that sound like sirens, but not many people seem to have that kind of taste.

 

The BL-03S, which is about the same price as the BLON, is recommended, but it seems to have been discontinued and is no longer available.

 

Sound quality features

  • Sound may become too aggressive depending on volume

 

General comment

The BLON MINI is a low-end earphone with relatively good crafting accuracy. It makes a good first impression with its relatively clear localization and glossy, impressive mid and high frequencies. The base of the sound is thick and powerful, so there is not much of an impression that the sound sounds thin, which is often the case with glossy earphones. Still, there is a drawback in that the high frequency range tends to sound a bit hysterical when the volume is turned up.
