PLEXTONE G20

ø10mm Dynamic Driver

$10~$15
3.0/5.0

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.

Pros

  • Boomy and powerful sound, perfect for electronic music.
  • Extra-long cable for maximum gaming comfort.
  • Robust and premium looking housing, with super-strong magnetic adsorption.
  • Great package contents, and you even get a free earphones/microphone splitter cable for use on your PC, which is a rare gift, especially for the overall low price of these earphones, and some extra accessories.

Cons

  • The mids and highs are somewhat darker than other bassy earphones like the PLEXTONE X41M and Baseus Lark EL-01.
  • The splitter and the remote are the same thing here, which means the mic is too far from your mouth, which is weird since these are supposed to be intended for gaming.

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. The bass, as you understand, isn't so controlled so it won't suit everybody.

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.
