gorsun GS-A6001
Ø9mm Dynamic Driver

The classic GS-A6001 are old news aleady, but it's special looks won my curiosity, and I wanted to see how far did gorsun improved on their products. I've got to admit - they improved a lot on their C-series, because GS-A6001 are not very good at all. They may be loud, but their sound isn't very pleasing to the ears. It's both muddy and harsh, while the mids and vocals are off-tone, dark and unpleasant. Consider the C-series instead.

Pros
Cons
  • The bass response is pretty nice.
  • The sound isn't very clear. The bass is muddy and prone to get distorted, the mids are blanketed and inaccurate and the highs are sharp and sibilant.
  • Horrible build quality and inefficient design.
  • Not very comfortable to wear.

Comfort & Fit

These earphones are needlessly large, which makes them quite uncomfortable to wear. The included tips are generic and don't really do much in terms of keeping these earphones firm inside the ears.

Lows / Bass

The bass is quite nice on lower volume levels, but tends to gets distorted on higher volumes and bassy contents. The bass mainly adds muddiness to the sound instead of a pleasing warmth.

Mids / Vocals

The mids are inaccurate and there's a lot of sibilance in the vocals. Loud instuments tend to be louder than they should. The overall sound is uncomfortable to the ears.

Highs / Treble

The highs are darkened, but sharp and piercing. They tend to get uncomfortably loud and not very detailed. Not a very pleasurable listening experience.
