The new CVJ Nami comes with a transparent shell and an aluminum alloy faceplate on top of it. With its 1DD+1BA hybrid acoustic architecture, Nami combines the prowess of dual magnetic dynamic drivers for mid-low frequencies and a high-frequency balanced armature driver to deliver a synchronized sound that adapts seamlessly with tuning switches.
Equipped with a 10mm newly developed aluminum-magnesium alloy diaphragm, the CVJ Nami promises low frequencies that provide a Live-like listening experience, adding depth and impact to your music. Paired with a high-frequency balanced armature unit, precisely tuned for CVJ’s Hybrid Technology architecture, this headphone offers accurate sound reproduction, delivering rhythm and atmosphere, making it perfect for immersive entertainment and online gaming.
With three tuning modes, CVJ Nami allows you to switch between 3 different sound profiles, whether you’re enjoying pop, rock, or classical music. Each mode brings its own distinct style.
The CVJ Nami showcases high-end craftsmanship at an entry-level price, featuring a visually shimmering effect achieved through CNC precision machining. The fully transparent resin shell allows you to see the internal acoustic components.
The CVJ Nami comes with a 0.75mm 2-pin detachable cable design, allowing for easy cable upgrades. The interface is clearly marked with “L” and “R” labels, and the blue and red color markings provide quick identification of left and right channels.
The braided double-strand, oxygen-free copper silver-plated stock cable is one the best in this price range for sure. It is soft and handles extremely well in the hand. Nami’s cable became one of my favorite cables that I daily use on other IEMs too, honestly more than the 2.5x expensive big brother the CVJ Freedom‘s cable.
CVJ Nami comes standard with a 3.5mm plug. If necessary, you can purchase 4.4mm, 2.5mm, and Type-C plugs separately.
I would like to thank CVJ Hi-Fi for providing me with the review sample of the CVJ Nami.
3 sound profiles with the help of two tuning switches on each IEM. As you can see on the graph the switches trigger the BA driver to wake up at just around 6K in two stages. In one DD, dynamic driver mode the Nami has less extension after 6K so it’s one driver IEM in this configuration. I have done the testing in 1DD+1BA high definition mode, the treble area all the way up.
CVJ knows what you want to hear in this range, and delivers it. There is a considerable bass depth to the Nami that is quite surprising. It provides a thick tone that has a rich surface. There’s a strong bloom to it that emphasizes a grand vibration. You never get any bloat from the bass, as it sections itself off into a jawline resonance. Great vibrations are felt, and the impact comes together in an engrossing fashion. It will call attention to itself often but still leave a lot of room for the mids to breathe in.
While some midrange elements are missing some body to it, there’s enough here to keep the sound signature satisfying. I found that the low and upper mids were heavily emphasized, and while it led to some good results, it left a veil in the fundamental regions. The piano notes were a bit soft and had a bit of trouble defining themselves while other instruments were at play. However, the vocals appear very life-like and add some much-needed realism to this frequency response.
There are some nice details to be heard here, and the timbre overall is pretty natural. Nothing overly bright or piercing appears here, but they don’t have any detailed coloration either. While they might be lacking in texture, the CVJ Nami does a good job of keeping the response intact, never feeling like something is missing. The highs are relaxed but still show a clear timbre with a present surface. Even with a roll-off, there is still some height to enjoy here, with the potential of some soft sibilance with the right performance.
For what they are, the CVJ Nami has an impressive soundstage. It offers an excellent balance of soundstage and listening experience. Its stereo field expands with plenty of width and never thins out the further it goes. While mostly linear, some nice depth is added to the imaging helped by great separation. Different sound elements have a clear distance between them, adding air and precision to the soundstage. Layering helps stack similarly placed performances in front of and behind each other for some depth, but articulation can vary depending on how busy the mix is.
For what it is, the CVJ Nami is very worth it. There are not a lot of good thirty-dollar IEMs out there, with a soundstage and bass this rich. Add tuning switches that actually work. And one of the best maybe the best stock cables supporting exchangeable plug support in a $30 package. All in a neat aesthetics with transparent shells, an aluminum faceplate, and a comfortable fit. No need to think twice, just get one as your first IEM or for your collection.
