VTing Y1-S
2 x Ø6mm Dynamic Drivers

The first product by VTing, as far as I know, looks very impressive externally. The sound? Meh. It's mediocre at best. As compared to other popular dual micro-driver earphones: VJJB V1S have better mids and highs, LKER i1 have better sound in all aspects, and Somic V4 clearly win this battle with their smooth sound.

Pros
Cons
  • Decent overall sound quality, considering the low price.
  • Beautiful design and high-end build quality.
  • The highs are dark and colored.
  • The lows don't get too low, which probably has something to do with the small drivers.
  • The shape of the housings could be uncomfortable to some.
  • Minimal accessories are included, compared to other dual micro-driver earphones.

Comfort & Fit

Theu fit pretty good overall, but their unique shape might be a problem for some. I had a bit of a difficulty fitting them properly. I always had the feeling that they don't seal entirely.

Lows / Bass

The bass response isn't the best. It lacks impact and depth, and pretty slow as well. Wasn't too impressed with these.

Mids / Vocals

Pretty nice mids, but also suffer from the coloration in the highs, and lack depth as the result of weak lows. They are mainly flat and not very interesting.

Highs / Treble

Colored and inaccurate. Not the worst I've heard, but also far from the best. The highs are mainly dark and off-tone. Reminds me those distorted highs of an old radio player.
