Inhon M1
Ø10mm Dynamic Driver

The first earphones ever produced by the Inhon brand. Having a superb solid build quality and intense bass quality, these earphones are a milestone in Inhon's sound department, but they have much to learn clarity-wise, as the sound isn't as bright and detailed as it needs to be to sound natural.

There were a few more earphones released by this particular brand, but I just can't get my hands on them.

Pros
Cons
  • Good sound quality, with punchy and precise bass.
  • Over-the-top build quality. The cable is fully braided, and these earphones feel indestructible.
  • An unusual unboxing experience.
  • The mids and highs sound somewhat unnatural and even lacking in the clarity department.
  • Even though the cable is fully braided, the lack of strain reliefs near the housings is an unwise decision.

Comfort & Fit

The included tips are quite comfortable, even though not perfect. They are quite common and generic. Still, I had no trouble fitting them in my ears.

Lows / Bass

The bass has a massive impact and enery with great precision, but unlike ROCK Zircon, the bass is more moderate and controlled, and doesn't have that same immersive sensation. Many people might even appreciate it.

Mids / Vocals

I get that feeling that the mids are slightly blanketed and artificial. They are far from being bad, but I'd like the vocals and instruments to be pushed forward a bit; to be more than just background detail.

Highs / Treble

The highs are noticeably darker than what you get with ROCK Zircon, and even slightly less harsh on the ears, if your hearing is that sensitive. However, the highs could benefit a lot from more vivid and detailed highs.
