MOAOL M850

ø10mm + ø5mm Dynamic Drivers

$10~$15
3.0/5.0

The only widely known earphones model by MOAOL is M850. After hearing some good feedbacks about these earphones, I decided to try them for myself. They did not disappoint entirely. Definitely some of the best budget earphones around for bassheads, both in build quality and sound quality, but not so much in design or comfort. However, they lack in the clarity and detail department, as the mids and highs have a dark off-tone sound that just sounds unnatural.

Pros

  • An amazing punching bass.
  • Superb build quality, simply rock-solid.
  • A beautiful presentation in a premium package.

Cons

  • The mids and highs sound very dark and unnatural, there's not much detail there either.
  • A generic and boring design.
  • Lack of accessories.

Comfort & Fit

For such wide cavities, they should have included wide-bore tips. Anyway, keeping them inside the ear was slightly difficult because they kept slipping out.

Lows / Bass

Very punchy and loud bass, very deep too, more than enough for you to enjoy it.

Mids / Vocals

Sounds decent with music genres like metal, but with more vocal-based genres, like soul, it sounds off-tone and nasal. Tonally, they sound dark, almost like listening through a phone.

Highs / Treble

Loud but not very detailed. Has a dark and unnatural tone to them. Sounds shrieky and harsh.
