The PLEXTONE G20 are a direct competitor to the popular Razer Hammerhead Pro V2. Although the bass is even more powerful than the successful PLEXTONE X41M, the G20 fall short when it comes to the sound clarity and precision. Nevertheless, these are extremely good earphones for the price they ask for it, and they are a significant improvement over the older PLEXTONE G10, especially in bass depth, mids and highs extension and overall loudness. It also comes with a super-long cable and even a 60cm 3.5mm extension cable, for the crazy among us.

Comfort & Fit
The earphones are very slightly angled but are also quite long, which means they stick out a bit. However, you get some legit memory foam tips with them which makes these earphones very much comfortable and stylish! The magnetic adsorption is very powerful (far stronger than X41M's adsorption), and the cable is super-long, which is useful for PC/gaming, for which these earphones were intended.
Lows / Bass
These earphones have a massive bass response, even more powerful and deeper than X41M's bass. If you're love electronic music, these earphones will shake your eardrums. More volume and depth in the bass over the G10 as well, although the extra bump in the mid-bass area isn't as pleasing.
Mids / Vocals
The mids were slightly improved over G10. However, some extra mid-bass was introduced as well. The mids are warm and somewhat dark, similarly to G10, but are more pronounced and loud overall. Along with the extra definition in the highs, the mids are overall better, but still not on par with the super-cheap X41M - it's close, but even warmer and fatter because of the mid-bass bump.
Highs / Treble
The highs are still not highly detailed, and still slightly darkish, but they are a slight improvement over the G10. They are comfortable to listen to, and have more detail in the upper-highs. They are also noticeably louder, but are still not audiophile-friendly as they are tonally darkish and typically V-shaped. Clarity is still lower than that of X41M.
