Letshuoer Soloist Review

Letshuoer Soloist Review

I’ve been taking a look at a lot of Letshuoer’s selection of IEMs for the past few months. These reviews have mostly been focused on their higher-end line, like the Cadenza and Conductor IEMs. Now it’s time to go back to their less pricey catalog and see what they can offer. The Soloist is a model that I’ve been keeping an eye on, and now I’ve gotten some significant time to spend with it. A lot of Letshuoer’s high-end IEMs have been great, but do they still have the same level of consistency as the $239 Soloist?

Look & Feel

I tested out the blue variant of the Soloist, which is aesthetically pleasing with its wavey, ocean-like streaks. However, the construction of the shell itself feels very plasticky, and while this does make for a light fit, it doesn’t appear as durable. You’ll get a lot of comfort out of the Soloist though. The chassis is well-shaped and ergonomic, fitting naturally in your ear. You can listen to the Soloist for multiple hours without feeling any fatigue.

The Soloist is a dynamic driver IEM. It is made using a kevlar dome, and liquid silicone surrounds. These materials are also found on Letshuoer’s flagship Conductor model, so you have a more economical IEM made with a heavy-duty driver system.

I know what Letshuoer can deliver in this range thanks to the S12. It’s great to see that with the Soloist, Letshuoer doesn’t sacrifice anything in its soundstage and imaging ability even with a more economical price. The Soloist doesn’t have the widest stage, but it does everything it can to make its headspace feel open. It’s a tighter soundstage, but the way all the sound elements are positioned in the mix brings out more depth than you might expect. Everything feels like a closed bubble of sound, as the Soloist goes out of its way to put you in the middle of the stereo field. Even in a smaller space, the instruments appear tall and the imaging is satisfyingly spacious. Nothing ever comes off as being on a flat plain. Each performance has a shape and is placed with pinpoint precision.

Low End

If you’re looking for bass, you’ll find it on the Soloist. This IEM reaches deep and comes alive with energetic vibrations. The timbre is never wholly transparent, but it has a good surface-level texture. You can always recognize it, as it takes prominence in the sound signature. This never causes any unnecessary bloat, but it does feel dominant over the low-mids. This can distract from the dynamics of some recordings, but if you’re exclusively listening to tracks with impact, then the Soloist is easy to become absorbed by.


While the mids aren’t completely recessed, there are some sizable notches that are noticeable. These notches mostly exist in the low-mids. This is done to make more room for the more dominant bass frequencies, forming a v-shaped timbre. It’s a specific sound profile that some will enjoy, while others will criticize its lack of detail. The Soloist tries to overcompensate in the upper mids, with sharper transients that give notes more identity. Its v-shaped signature is handled very elegantly, but some instruments lack a proper foundation.


The Soloist definitely has a good presence of treble, but the timbre is flatter than the rest of the sound signature. I find it delightful, even if there aren’t any real textural qualities to the frequencies. These highs are nicely balanced and evened out for a distinctively natural response. If you notice and brightness, it’ll mostly reside in the mid-treble, but it never came off as harsh.


Letshuoer shows some versatility with the Soloist. For $239 you get an IEM with a unique sound for its price. It has a fun v-shaped profile, which might be limiting with its performance of certain genres, but the level of control it puts on display is very amusing. The bass is fun and shows a lot of punch, while the soundstage gives you a ton of room to be engrossed in. The Soloist has a few flaws, particularly in its midrange, but still stands tall as a worthy, budget-friendly IEM.
