ø6mm Dynamic Driver
A product that was hyped around the net - MEMT X5 - has finally reached my hands. I gotta admit, I wasn't expecting such performance from tiny micro-drivers. I was shocked and still am shocked as these have become my favorite earphones, even more favorable than ROCK Zircon, which were my daily drivers up to this day. Now the MEMT X5 are taking their place, until that day when I find something even more spectacular than these!
I'm still sad that these earphones don't have a black/dark-grey color options... but hey, at least you get magnetic adsorption, how sweat is that?!

Comfort & Fit
I always have troubles with double-flange tips, they never seal properly for me, and that resulted in a cold bass-less sound. Once I replaced them with some soft white L-size single-flange tips, I unleashed the full potential of these earphones.
With that being said, including only double-flange tips was an unwise decision, as these tips are not fit for every ears.
Lows / Bass
What?! These tiny drivers have some of the deepest, quickest and most accurate bass responses I've yet to hear! I never imagined that I'll live to hear micro-driver earphones that product super-satisfying, eardrum-shaking sub-bass as these do!
Besides the sub-bass, the mid-bass and upper-bass are very well-defined, punchy, warm and enrich the already superb mids these earphones have.
Mids / Vocals
Some of the best mids I've yet to hear. They are very present but not overemphasized, not harsh and never sibilant. Vocals are close enough to enjoy, and far enough to be comfortable for a very long listening session. These will handle literally every music genre you might throw at them, even complex pieces like metal.
Highs / Treble
Very sharp and crisp. High Definition would be very accurate to describe the level of clearness and detail these earphones have to offer. The peaks in the upper-mids and highs are quite subtle in a very bright, yet well-balanced way, never causing discomfort or sibilance.
