UNBOXING is interesting và artsy, and even a little sexy! I think FAAEAL get inspire by the boxing and product presentation of Moondrop và I admit that I lượt thích it. It’s rare that we have something collectible in an earphone box, but the cardboard with a manga lady is sure appreciate & put a smile on your face. We do not feel as a consumer that just buy a 60$ pair of earphones with the Hibiscus unboxing, because the whole presentation is very luxurious and carefully put together. Apart of iem and (incredible) cable, we have sầu a generous amount of silicone ear tips (7 pairs) & a cable clip. A carrying case or pouch would have been appreciate.

CONSTRUCTION is from another league for the price we pay, và more on par with 100-300$ iem. Not only the housing is made of half thick mirror metal & half thichồng glossy plastic, but it feel extremely sturdy too. For a single dynamic, the housing is quite big & have good weight to it. The 2pin female connector are well implemented and isn’t neither too thigh or too loose, just perfect.

CABLE is without a doubt the very best cable I ever have with any earphones whatever the price range. It’s a Real Litz high purity copper cable with a total of 224 cores of 5N copper purity. This isn’t a gimmiông xã and the cable braids are thiông xã và very soft. The construction is excellent with a metal gold plated jachồng & metal 2pin connector. The ear hook is smooth and very flexible. The cable do not create micro-phonic because of how flexible and soft it is. The fact is : this cable is sell around 50-100$. You can find very same one selling at 50$ in some Aliexpress store. I’m in passionate love sầu with this Hibiscus cable and can’t recommover it enough. I use it with every 2pin iem i own, & the sound feel always fuller và lusher, unlike colder sound we can get from silver plated cable or unbalanced sound from bad OFC cable. I urge you lớn either buy the Hibiscus for cable alone or buy the cable for 17$ HERE.

DESIGN is elegant & simple. Even if the size of housing is rather big, the fit is ergonomic and very comfortable. Their no hard angle, strange curve sầu or too small-too long nozzle, all fit smoothly. Only thing is that metal part can get cold in winter but it barely touch your ears anyway. I have no problem listening long time with the Hibiscus.

ISOLATION is phenomenal. I have sầu an anecdote about how great the Hibiscus isolate from outside noise. I get attaông chồng by a little dog and never ever heard hyên ổn barking at me, even if he was at 10 centimeter of distance, i just know about its existence when he begin lớn bite my shoes. When i put off my Hibiscus, i discover that this little berserk dog yap very loud for it’s kích thước, so I conclude Hibiscus are among muốn the best isolating iem on planet earth. Why? Well, it’s surely explain by the thichồng metal baông xã plate as well as the fact it only have sầu one front venting hole as large as a pin. This laông xã of baông chồng venting hole bởi vì permit a near inexistent sound leakage too.DRIVEABILITY is enough easy at 32ohm impedance & rather high 110db of sensitivity. It’s not the easiest và will benefit from an enough powerful DAPhường, but i never feel the need of using a portable amp with the Hibiscus.

SOUND :

*

The Hibiscus aren’t easy to describe, which I consider a good thing because it proof it have a nuanced tuning and not a vulgar warm or bright V shape one. Whole sound is coherent và balanced, smooth with good resolution & big sound-stage. It vị not wow you with super bass impact or treble sparkle và micro details. Instead, it have sầu a near neutral sound that gradually lift mid range & lower treble. The highlight of Hibiscus sonority is the soundstage, transparency of timbre & natural tonal balance.

*

SOUNDSTAGE is very wide, tall and deep. Tough not particularly holographic in its openness, it sure sound out of your head & airy. To me this is the most positive aspect of Hibiscus.

IMAGING is average, you have sầu good transparent layers of sound but will struggle lớn pin point instruments placement. We aren’t in sharp và vivid HD like spacial placement here, and mid range stole accurate definition of bass và highs instruments.

CLARITY too is rather average, in the sens that we have sầu good resolution but poor definition of instrument details, impact & body.

TIMBRE is slightly bright, smooth, transparent with hint of dryness. We can điện thoại tư vấn it thin too. It’s neither thichồng, organic, warm or cold.

BASS is flat and subdued by mid range that sit on it with all the weight it have. Extension is good, we have sầu a little extra sub bass presence but control isn’t the best và separation with low và mid bass can sound muffled. Their not a lot of slam or punch, even if kick drum sound realist, the weight isn’t felt. So, yes, very flat indeed but not roll off or overly dry. It’s transparent & gently textured timbre help to offer natural transition from low to lớn mids. Anyway, it’s not the most exciting bass response, và will fit slow music lượt thích Jazz, Classical, R&B, Pop better than fast rochồng, metal or electronic.

MID RANGE is quite forward và have sầu good presence. It’s resolution is clear enough, thanks to its slightly bright timbre, but the definition of instrument impact and accuracy is very smooth so it’s not a very lively mid range. Vocal are a little dry & thin but do not sound recessed and have a good wideness. Strangely, the vocal can overshadow rest of instrument even if the transparency is good. As said, attaông chồng isn’t enough snappy to lớn give realist impact khổng lồ instrument like piano, violin và guitar. For saxophone or vocal, this is less problematic, but overall result still lack excitement & accuracy.

TREBLE is well extended and natural. It bởi vì not feel lớn spiky & pushed forwards và remind me a little the Final Audio E2000 kind of highs. Brilliance as well as sparkle isn’t really there, we bởi not have crisp detailed highs even if enough micro details is shown, it will never pop up in a vivid way. Delicate & relaxed, highs have good control which make percussion sound reacác mục in timbre & presence, cause they stay still were they should : in the bachồng of music. No splashiness, no harshness, a welcome hint of crunchiness and you got well balanced high range that are as much effortless than harmless.SUB BASS : 7.5MID BASS : 7.5MID RANGE : 8/10TREBLE : 8/10SOUNDSTAGE : 9/10IMAGING : 7/10TIMBRE : 8/10ATTACK-DECAY : 7/10

COMPARISONS :

*

VS BLON BL-03

SOUNDSTAGE: Soundstage is very similar with both, but BL-03 is little wider while Hibiscus is little deeper. BASS is more U shape with BLON, its warmer, have more sub bass thickness which affect separation clarity of mid bass punch, Hibiscus have sầu more transparent, flatter bass, notably less sub bass but better separation with mid bass so definition of kiông xã is better. Hibiscus is less bassy rumbly, but vì chưng not warm as much lower mid range than BLON. MIDS are thicker và more forwards in vocal presence with BLON which is more opaque and have sầu slightly more upper mids so its more textured too, here the HIBISCUS sound more transparent và clearer, but not as lively in presence và timbre than BLON, still its more articulate even if thinner in timbre. TREBLE too is more forwards with BLON, which make percussion attachồng more vivid but a little grainy too. HIB is again more controlled & balanced, keeping smoother tonal balance but lacking in sparkle decay compared to lớn the BLON.

All in all, HIBISCUS is more neutral và balanced, with more transparency and better imaging while the BLON is more lively, fun, with lusher vocal & crispier treble.

VS TRN V90 :

SOUNDSTAGE is more out of your head, significantly taller và wider than the V90 but not has deep và clean.

IMAGING go for V90, which is way sharper and more articulate than darker Hibiscus. BASS of Hibiscus is thicker, weightier và juicier but laông xã transparency và separation with mid bass which sub bass warm, V90 is dryer và a little more textured và while the punch is thinner it still feel more controlled and clearer, making kiông chồng better separated. MID RANGE while sounding more natural and liquid with the Hibiscus, is darker & less clear than V90. Vocal sound wider but less forward than V90, as well, whole mid range is less detailed and energic, lacking definition in attaông xã and sounding very mellow compared khổng lồ more energic V90. TREBLE is smoother & little roll off compared khổng lồ sharper & crisper V90 that certainly dig more microdetails than Hibiscus.

ALL in all, Hibiscus is smooth U shape sounding compared to more neutral và aggressive V90.

CONCLUSION :

*

FAAEAL really take me by surprise with their first serious earphones offering và I must admit that cấp độ of overall value it offer is mind blowing.

The sound is maturely tuned, with good coherent balance, no harshness, natural transparent timbre and most of all a very big soundstage.

The construction is of extremely high quality for it’s price and include the best 2pin (or mmcx) cable I ever own.

The product presentation is professional & inspiring.

Yes, FAAEAL aren’t just good khổng lồ tune earbuds, & the knowledge they earn by using multiple dynamic driver with earbuds begin to bearing fruit for their earphones conception as well.

I really hope it’s not the last iem FAAEAL will launch, & that next one will improve on the base of Hibiscus sound signature. Their place for amelioration even if Hibiscus sound decent for it’s price.
