ROCK Y5 (RAU0529)
Ø12mm Dynamic Driver
The ROCK brand is a legend in our small community. They keep releasing stuff, probably hoping to replicate the continous success of ROCK Zircon, and they fail just about any such attempt. This time isn't not any different. This joint operation of ROCK with "LavaRock" (whoever that is) is nothing more than "just another earphones" compared to the much better (and cheaper) competition.

Comfort & Fit
I was sure I had a perfect seal, but I was wrong. They sit well inside the ear, but it won't provide any seal for me, thus I couldn't hear any bass even when I tried moving the earphones manually. Eventually I found an angle in which I could hear the actual bass...
Lows / Bass
Take note: If you don't hear the bass - you need different tips. The bass is pretty deep, mostly mid-bass. However, it leaks to the mids quite often.
Mids / Vocals
The mids are about average. There's occasional sibilance now and then, and deep bass tends to completely overthrow the mids.
Highs / Treble
The highs aren't that remarkable, but they are loud and clear. There are noticeable peaks which are responsible for the occasional sibilance.
