Mannhas C190
Dynamic Driver

One of the most popular products among earphone fans is the Mannhas C190. These earphones are definitely special. They don't look like much, but once you put a vocal-oriented piece of music, you'll learn to appreciate some of the best mids and highs among budget earphones.

Granted, the bass is pretty lame with these, but every earphones have their target audience. Just like the similar earphones, the boarseman CX98 and CX98S, these earphones are strictly for audiophiles, or people who just like bright earphone, but definitely not for bassheads, and not even average listeners.

Pros
Cons
  • Amazing highs are mids. Superb audio quality for soft rock, folk, country, and other light music genres.
  • The build quality is pretty solid and durable.
  • Pop music and bass-oriented music listeners should look elsewhere. These earphones barely have any bass.
  • The volume is relatively lower than most earphones that I've tested.
  • The design is boring and generic, and the "dpark" branding is quite a mystery.
  • The packaging is a lazy one. It just looks out of place.

Comfort & Fit

Not the most well-designed earphones for comfort. They are quite short and have sharp edges. Also, they may not fit that well for some with the pre-applied tips.

Lows / Bass

Only the upper-lows are somewhat present, and they fill the mids with light warmth. However, the mid-bass barely exists, while the lower-end is simply missing. If you have some bass enhancement, the bass will improve, but will occasionally sound inaccurate. If you listen to a lot of dance-oriented music genres, these earphones aren't for you.

Mids / Vocals

Very detailed mids and vocals. The amount of detail and precision is simply amazing. It's just that most of the instruments and vocals sound brighter than they should be, which sound somewhat unnatural and eventually fatiguing.

Highs / Treble

Extremely bright and detailed highs. They are among the most impressive highs you can get for such a low price. However, these highs are piercing and could cause a fatigue on long listening sessions. You should consider lowering the volume.
