I recently reviewed the Aroma Audio Jewel, and as soon as I was finished, I knew I had to hear Aroma’s newest flagship, the Fei Wan.

According to their website, the name references a nickname the founder of the company goes by; Fei Hun. I assume it means “Sweet Titties”, as that’s the sentiment at the forefront of my mind when listening to these in-ears.

As a loaner unit, Fei Wan came to me bare bones in just a pouch, IEMs and cable within. So I cannot comment on packaging and accessories.

The IEM its self has a very thick stem (the part which inserts into your ear), and I could not for the life of me get certain tips on. Final Type E, for instance, I never could install. So I went for my old standbys, the JVC Spiral Dots. Symbio W also fit easily. But I went for the Spiral Dots, as I find them most comfortable for my ear anatomy.

Fei Wan is a large IEM, and may stick out conspicuously for many. I have an ugly fat head with silly Dumbo ears, and they jut a little from even my ears. Size notwithstanding, I find them quite comfortable, even after many hours of use.

The included cable is Aroma Audio’s “Sparkle” cable. It’s a silver plated oxygen-free copper, four-conductor braid, terminating in 4.4mm balanced. Ergonomically, it’s not my favorite thing in the world, but it’s a big step up from the cable Jewel ships with. Sparkle is good enough I never felt the need to change it out for my review.

Pinky is an artsy twat. Illustration, graphic design, writing. Yet music escapes him, and always has. He builds his own cables, and likes to explore the craftsmanship of others. He's a stabby one, also. At the first hint of annoyance, out comes the blade. I say he's compensating for something... in a big bad way. If we all try really hard as a collective, maybe we can have him put down.
