A head-to-head review of three popular sub-$100 earphones – the VSonic VSD3S, Ostry KC06 and Havi B3 Pro I
The Tekfusion Twinwoofers are competent bass-heavy earphones that suffer from a spot of bass bloat but still offer up good midrange presence and a smooth, inoffensive top end.
The Perfect Seal SportBud Silver is a high-end workout earphone that provides the perfect fit and audiophile quality sound at a reasonable price.
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.
Comply Custom Wraps are a new product designed to improve the seal with CIEMs.
The budget-minded Nuforce NE-600X draws on the tuning of the company’s higher-end earphones to deliver an unabashedly bass-heavy sound without sacrificing overall performance
I’ve noticed that earphones in the $100-$150 range are let down by the sound quality more often than expected – maybe 1 in 3 are worth recommending on sound alone. This is not at all the case with the Brainwavz R3
The ADL X1 is a superb DAC/amp with plenty of upside potential and one caveat. Check out the review to find out if it is right for you.
The VSonic GR07 Classic represents a cut in price but not quality for the acclaimed GR07. Beware of some sellers passing the Classic off as the GR07 mkII.
