The LEAR LUF-4 models offer a competitive, yet well-differentiated alternative to more mainstream multi-BA earphones with an unprecedented level of customization for universal IEMs
The JAM Transit Buds deliver what they promise – easy-to-use Bluetooth functionality with a design that’s suitable for workouts thanks to sweat resistance and a secure fit in the ear.

The Brainwavz S1 combines plentiful bass and strong treble to deliver a lively, engaging sound with a popular v-shaped sound signature.
