Langsdom i8
ø9.2mm Dynamic Driver

The first Langsdom earphones I decided to try were the i8. At first, I wasn't impressed, but after a while I started to appreciate the great and precise bass quality these offer, even though there's barely any sub-bass. The highs are sharp and vivid, but the mids are the weak spot. The mids are muffled and inaccurate, and it comes in complete contrast to the lows and highs, which are pretty remarkable.

Pros
Cons
  • A pretty nice sound quality with a warm and punchy bass and crisp highs.
  • Nice looking and well-built metallic housings and plug.
  • A useful magnetic adsorption feature.
  • A dedicated volume slider on the inline remote.
  • There's nothing particularly impressive about the mids of these earphones. The vocals are pushed back and off-tone, overwhelmed by the powerful mid-bass.
  • Apart from the housings and the plug, the overall build quality is pretty cheap. The cable is generic, really stiff and has no strain reliefs, and the ear tips are generic wide-bore black tips.
  • The splitter and the inline remote are the same thing here, which means the mic is too far away from your mouth.

Comfort & Fit

The earphones are slightly too short, but they go in pretty easily and stay in, most of the time.

Lows / Bass

A nice and warm mid-bass and just a little bit of sub-bass. Pretty punchy I'd say.

Mids / Vocals

The vocals sound muffled and off-tone, and not highly detailed either. The lower-mids are muffled down while the upper-mids/lower-highs are overemphasized and just scream into your ears.

Highs / Treble

The highs are quite sharp, not highly detailed, and not very accurate. Lower treble is overemphasized and harsh, while anything above 5kHz can barely be noticed.
