Baseus Lark EL-01
Dynamic Driver

The first earphones by the renown brand Baseus. On first sight, they look like just any cheap earphones on the market. Don't be fooled so easily though. It says "Stylish Design to Deliver Amazing Beats"... Do you like bass? Want something to blow your brains out? Get these as soon as possible (and a decent pair of ear tips, because the included ones just won't do).

These are probably the go-to earphones for bassheads and electronic dance music listeners.

Pros
Cons
  • Some of the beefiest sub-bass I've ever heard from a pair of earphones. Simply mind-blowing.
  • These things are freakin' loud. I mean it. They are insanely loud. Just look at the frequency response curve.
  • Slightly artificial-sounding mids and highs.
  • Not very comfortable because of their bulky and short design.
  • The design is rather generic and the build materials are nothing but OK.
  • The ear tips are almost useless.

Comfort & Fit

These cheap ear tips again... last time I've seen them being included with Shenger earphones. They just don't seal. Get better ear tips, and as always, I strongly recommend the ROCK Zircon tips.

Lows / Bass

Wow... just how!? That bass is crazy. I can actually feel the vibration tickling my eardrums. Not very healthy on my part, but seriously, I'm impressed. When it comes to bass stability, these drivers could do better. Bass sounds a bit shaky at times.

Mids / Vocals

Rather dark and unimpressive. Very recessed and completely overrun by the powerful mid-bass and sub-bass. Clarity isn't that great, but not the worst I've heard either.

Highs / Treble

The highs are recessed and soft. Far from being harsh on the ears, but are also nowhere impressive. Typically V-shaped and darkish, actually.
