Wonderful TOTL IEM at an amazing price, will resolve micro details in the higher frequency spectrum where many IEMs don't fare as well. It also manages to avoid sounding too harsh on treble so even someone treble-sensitive like myself have no problems listening to prolonged periods.
The IEM itself is mid centric but not overwhelmingly so (mostly neutral tonality without being boring.) Do note for bass heads this may not be the right IEM for you as you can identify from the frequency response chart it does has a recessed low end. This does not mean it loses its details you can EQ the lowest frequency and all of the details will come back but it's nowhere near a harder hitting bass IEM (you'll want a dynamic driver/hybrid for that.)
Only gripe: extremely sensitive (one of the worst when it comes to sensitivity.) Tried paring up with Hiby R6 Pro the noise is very distracting, when paired with Hiby impedance adapter noise does disappear but sound becomes extremely veiled its unusable. Only a low noise floor source such as the Lotoo Paw 6000 does it give dead silent background d under Low Gain.
Do yourself a favor however and replace the stock cable; the cable it comes with sounds extremely dark and is unable to fully utilize the capabilities of this IEM. I currently have this paired with a PWaudio blackicon (silver+gold 1%) and Effect Audio Grandioso and the difference is night a day over stock cable. You'll be able to hear much better clarity even with a cheaper Chi-fi SPC cable.
Do you use an audio analyzer and have a frequency response graph to show the difference between cables?
The differences using cable wont be shown in graph
Let’s look at some CSD waterfalls just in case too then
Unmatched treble clarity? That's an overstatement, to be fair. There are quite a few headphones that present greater detail throughout the entire frequency range than these. Empire ears even makes a few of them.
My FA9s take that crown, cmon just be real with me.
