Ø8mm Dynamic Drivers
The massive success of ROCK Zircon has driven numerous brands to make imitations, aiming to steal some of Zircon's fame to themselves. RAXFLY are one of these brands. What I've got to say is RAXFLY failed to nail both the build quality and the sound quality of the mighty Zircon. The bass is strong, but nowhere near as spacious and immersive as the Zircon offer. The highs are loud, but not as bright and clear as Zircon's highs. The mids are more muffled and in the background in comparison.
That's not to say that RAXFLY L5 are bad earphones. Actually, they're quite excellent for their super-cheap price. But if you're trying to imitate something, you should put more effort than that.

Comfort & Fit
The included ear tips are quite rare and do an excellent job keeping those earphones inside your ears. These ear tips are not of the same quality as those that are included with ROCK Zircon, but they are great nonetheless.
Lows / Bass
The bass is powerful, but also sounds brightened-out by the quite harsh and darkish highs. There's something imprecise about these lows. They don't sound as impactful as they should, and aren't so deep.
Mids / Vocals
The mids are mediocre, sound somewhat pushed back and slightly sibilant as a result of upfront highs. They are OK, but nothing too impressive.
Highs / Treble
The highs are loud and slightly harsh. There's a darkish tone to them which makes them somewhat unnatural. It sounds as if the highs are so exaggerated that they sound too close to your ears.
