Ø6mm Dynamic Driver
YAGALA is a brand that got me curious, because their Y-80C are so tiny and elegant. I was expecting them to sound good, as they are priced like the ROCK Zircon. Apparently, they aren't quite on ROCK Zircon's level. They sound warm and bright, with some sibilance in the vocals. But you might like them for their great overall sound and also their design, size and build quality.

Comfort & Fit
These earphones are tiny and stay in the ears quite comfortably, assuming you found a suitable pair of tips for your ears. Just make sure you have a perfect seal, else you won't hear the low end properly.
Lows / Bass
The bass is awesome even though there is not much sub-bass. You will rarely hear any bass distortion with these earphones, which is surprising, considering the size of their drivers. However, these earphones perform better with amplification.
Mids / Vocals
Vocals sound clear but sightly pushed back. They are also a bit too bright and slightly sibilant, especially on amplified sources.
Highs / Treble
Quite sharp and can be harsh on amplified sources. Sibilance can be heard sometimes, but it's a matter of getting used to and taste.
