Wearing the Bellos Audio X2 for a few hours was a truly enjoyable experience. The matte shell’s grippy texture felt distinct in my ear, offering a reassuringly secure fit despite not gliding in as smoothly as polished resin. The elongated nozzle sat comfortably close to my ear canal’s bend, exerting a gentle pressure that felt just right. With its custom molds, the X2 ensured a snug fit without any discomfort, making it feel good even during prolonged testing sessions.

Bellos Audio keeps it simple with the X2 design, offering three color options and a grippy matte finish. I chose the green variant, but there’s also matte black and gray available. The X2 has a sturdy look with three screws on the shell, making it easy to remove the faceplate when needed. Unlike other designs, the faceplate is detachable, adding a touch of convenience. Despite its slightly larger size, the X2 is surprisingly lightweight, thanks to its 3D-printed shell and two-driver setup.

The Bellos X2 soundstage is truly outstanding, offering an immersive experience that surpasses its price. It creates a sense of depth both in front and behind the ears, making you feel like you’re right in the middle of the music. The wide stereo imaging spreads the sound beautifully, making it feel expansive and rich. Plus, the careful layering ensures that every detail is clear and precise. I had an excellent listening session while testing them, and it truly elevated my music experience.

In the bass department, the Bellos X2 impresses with its punchy yet balanced delivery. Unlike some models that tend to dominate with booming bass, the X2 maintains a tasteful control, ensuring a nuanced listening experience. As the sound signature leans towards neutrality, the bass is tamed, allowing other frequencies to shine through. However, this adjustment doesn’t compromise on energy; the low-end remains surprisingly fast and lively. Its smooth texture adds richness without dominating, striking a fine balance that enhances the overall listening experience.

In the midrange, the Bellos X2 excels with clean and well-defined sound reproduction. This range maintains clarity while avoiding any harshness or grating frequencies, especially in the lower-treble range. The X2 boasts one of the most energetic midranges, delivering natural-sounding vocals and instrumentals that truly shine. Its wide stereo imaging further enhances the listening experience, providing a spacious and immersive soundstage that envelops the listener.

The Bellos X2 offers an exceptional listening experience, particularly in their treatment of vocals and highs. The vocals are rendered with remarkable clarity, creating a sensation as if the voices are emanating from the back of one’s head. Personally, as a lover of bright vocals, I find immense satisfaction in the airy highs produced by the Bellos X2. They elevate the listening experience, enveloping the listener in a cocoon of sound that is both intimate and expansive. In essence, the Bellos X2 IEMs redefine what it means to be truly immersed in music.
