The first Fokoos product I decided to try is F1. I wasn't expecting much from a brand that is almost unknown, but these earphones were a pleasant surprise. Fokoos F1 come in a suspiciously simple package, but offer a decent sound quality - it's loud and it's very fun. The mids and highs, however, are not transparent enough. The rather dark timbre makes them sound a bit on the dirty and harsh side.

Lows / Bass
The bass is quite warm and punchy, but not too deep. The mid-bass sounds quite overemphasized most of the time, but it's a matter of taste.
Mids / Vocals
The mids and vocals are very good. They are warm, sometimes maybe even too warm because of excessive mid-bass, and slightly darkened. But still, they are very enjoyable if you're not a picky audiophile.
Highs / Treble
The highs aren't particularly detailed, but they are very comfortable to listen to. Tonally they are somewhat dark.
