Senfer F05
Ø9mm + Ø8mm Dynamic Drivers

Who are Senfer? Nobody really knows for sure. But what I do know is that they take their earphones seriously, and Senfer F05 proves them worthy to be among the best budget earphone brands. You get a bright, hi-fi level sound, yet the bass is present and is punchy enough to enjoy.

NOTE: This model was most likely discontinued. It is very difficult to find for purchase.

Pros
Cons
  • An amazing sound quality. Clear and bright.
  • A very good build quality.
  • A beautiful presentation in a premium package.
  • A bunch of tips and accessories to choose from, and an especially well made pouch.
  • The extremely sharp highs can be overwhelming at times, and even cause a headache.
  • The design is nice, but somewhat goofy.

Comfort & Fit

The stock pre-applied tips fit perfectly. A perfect A+ seal. Even though these have 2 drivers and a metal housing, they are not that heavy and you won't get the feeling that they are going to fall out.

Lows / Bass

The bass is very precise and enjoyable, yet it needs slightly more sub-bass.

Mids / Vocals

Vocals are very clear, yet they are overpowered by loud sibilance.

Highs / Treble

The sound signature is too bright. The sibilance is loud and unpleasantly sharp. However, you can hear every hi-hat and cymbal very clearly.
