I won’t talk about the packaging, everything is fine there. I liked the fact that in addition to stock attachments, the kit included original Sony ear tips, they were the best ones on market. Armed with one 9.2 mm dynamic driver. Shells are 3D printed, have a convenient shape, and small size, which will suit 90% of people. And they are also very beautiful, if it is important for someone, it is important for me. Very high-quality build. Oxygen-free copper cable, soft, also high-quality sound.
The stage is wide, all frequencies are separated, there is no negative layering. High frequencies are very soft, brought a little to the background, but resolution and detail do not suffer from this. The middle is rich and structured. And I would call the bass intelligent, without sharp beats, but at the same time powerful and as deep as possible.
The overall sound is warm, comfortable, and engaging. It probably sounds like a contradiction but as made warm and very emotional headphones. I don’t know how they did it, but this is my sound. I highly recommend these IEMs. The AQ0 is worth every cent you spend on them.
Audiosense DT100 (Yang)
In terms of packaging, build quality, convenience, and high aesthetics of shells, everything is like “Yin”, at a very good level, the only difference is in sound and absence of ear tips from Sony. Armed with one BA driver. The stage is narrower, highs are sharper and due to this more analytical, well, this is a balanced armature, the bass is weaker than in “Yin”.
There is only one BA, ok, but it does wonders. The test confirms that their experiment with the world’s first exit from the top wall of the BA sound guide has a positive effect on the sound, especially the addition of low frequencies. I listen and do not believe that such a tight and warm bass gives only one BA, guys, not only the bass but the rest of the spectrum and the Audiosence DT100 does it very well.
Before that my reference one BA was FA1, damn it, these sound much cooler. If you want to get to know BA after DD or try after your 15 BA, 30 BA, 50 BA in one ear, try just 1 BA in your ear, which so incredible sounding, just fracking сool sounding. Sorry for the abundance of epithets, I hate drooling and snot, but when I’m impressed I talk about it, so be prepared for the fact that you may not like these products. I personally liked both models and I will listen to them for a long time. Now I understand why the brand has such a name, I used to think it was just marketing. You will also understand it when you try it.
