ø8mm Dynamic Driver
Unlike the MS16, which focus on mids and clarity, Headroom also offers the M8, for the remaining crowd of bassheads. These earphones are almost typical V-shaped, with an impressive boost of mid-bass. The mids, however, fall behind - they are recessed quite a bit, at least compared to earphones like ROCK Zircon, VJJB K4S and DZAT DF-10, but seem to be tonally accurate.
If you're looking for enjoyable earphones for a tiny price, you might want to check these. If you're looking for bright and detailed ones, look elsewhere.

Comfort & Fit
Those aren't ergonomic earphones, but I had absolutely no comfort issues with the pre-applied tips. Those tips are simple and look generic, but they do their job perfectly.
Lows / Bass
The bass is quite monstrous, especially when we're taking about the mid-bass, thanks to the bump around 100Hz that extends all the way to around 300Hz. Possibly some of the punchiest bass around, with enough sub-bass as well, to fulfill all your electronic music needs. For vocal-oriented music, these earphones performed well, but the bass might be just a bit too much for some listeners.
Mids / Vocals
I have no complains about those mids. I listened to some complex music pieces, watched some videos and played some games, and had absolute fun. Sure, as you might expect, a typical V-shaped earphones will not be mid-focused, but tonally they are just about right.
Highs / Treble
While not having the most crisp or detailed highs, at least they aren't piercing and are actually great for most genres I threw at these earphones. The highs are typical V-shaped highs - just sharp enough and plain fun. Those who are sensitive to treble will find these quite comfortable to use for a prolonged time.
