Shozy BK (Stardust) Earbud Review

Verdict –

So the BK is not a cheap earbud, but in a sense, it does provide pleasing value. They offer a unique but catching aesthetic, supreme long-term comfort and a very mature sound that is a rarity even among vastly more expensive products. Shozy might not have the most cutting-edge products, but one thing they nail is tonality, arguably just as important if not more so. The BK actualizes their philosophy as a tonally excellent earbud that possesses some really nice quality too. Bass texture and tightness, in particular, are more akin to that offered by the $300 Oriveti New Primacy than the in-ears and earbuds around $150-200. Though the New Primacy offers more sub-bass and slightly more resolution still, the BK comes in at just half the price. Their midrange is also an outlier around this price, they are simply so natural sounding without compromising clarity and detail presentation. This does come with some caveats, the BK’s don’t have the most atmospheric treble response, they need a nice source to flourish and provide almost zero noise isolation; but if you love the earbud form factor or intend to use them in quiet environments, the BK’s provide an exceptional auditory experience.

Verdict – 9/10, Shozy’s newest earbud boasts an expertly crafted build that exhumes exclusivity and an organic, slightly analogue tuning that thoroughly impresses with its realism. If you’re looking for a versatile, balanced and comfortable earbud, the BK is a fantastic choice.

  1. I bought a VE Monk Plus, and I like it but would like to buy a higher end earbud for listening to all kinds of rock music (Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd, David Bowie, new wave bands, Nine Inch Nails, etc…).
    I use primarily a DragonFly Red as a source.
    Do you propose Shozy BK or the Shozy Cygnus for this purpuse? Or is there any other earbud I should consider?
    From the IEM-s should I also try Oriveti New Primacy or Rose Mini 2?
