The Ti7 is easily among the most distinctive and best-constructed earbuds on the market. Their metal housings and removable cables are both stunning and their sharp styling doesn’t come at the cost of ergonomics. Their sound is also very unique, some aspects are questionable but others are quite compelling. They are very tonally balanced for an earbud but each frequency carries a smooth tuning and sense of fullness that heightens engagement at times but muddies at others. Most importantly, the Ti7 maximises the potential of its form factor, something that countless other offerings fail so miserably to encapsulate. Their wide open soundstage and natural presentation slice through veil even if each element isn’t rendered with absolute precision or clarity. Though they don’t hold a huge sonic lead over the cheaper Penon BS1, their removable cable and sturdy metal build make the Ti7 a fantastic long term investment.
Verdict – 8/10, Newcomer Ourart shoot for the stars with their Ti7, an innovative earbud that sounds almost as good as it looks. Their laid-back tones won’t be to everyone’s liking, but beyond their thickness lies some convincing technicality.
