Joyroom JR-E109/EM202
ø10mm Dynamic Driver

I've heard good stuff about Joyroom earphones, and decided to try some of them. The first one to try is their newest earphones to date: JR-E109. I've got to admit, the feedback was true - Joyroom did an excellent job with these earphones. Massive bass depth and quality, gentle but present mids and detailed and vivid highs, even if somewhat colored and not exactly audiophile-friendly. And let's not forget the design - the metallic housings and the awesome lined cable with a metallic effect are pretty stylish. Amazing earphones to own!

These earphones share similarities in sound signature with BYZ K30, Winintone RG-EB601, boarseman KR49i and many other great earphones.

Pros
Cons
  • Insane bass quality and depth, and loud and crisp highs. The mids are decent as well.
  • Robust build quality and an attractive design.
  • The darkish sound signature affects the mids, which are already recessed as it is, when it comes to clarity.
  • The cable was folded tightly inside the package. Never do that.

Lows / Bass

The bass of these is loud and gets very deep. The sub-bass is simply amazing. Mindblowing. Flawless performance for electronic and dance music.

Mids / Vocals

The mids and vocals are darkish and filled with mid-bass, and are very noticeably recessed compared to the highs, creating a more prominent V-shaped sound. Sibilance occurs quite often because of emphasized highs. The mids are rather darkish in tone and appear to be somewhat harsh.

Highs / Treble

The highs are crisp and loud, perhaps even too loud. The highs tend to cause some sibilanc on vocals, but mainly on above-average volume. Overall, these highs are energetic and enjoyable, but offer nothing special in terms of clarity or detail.
