Linsoul knows how to produce little brands with big sound at budget friendly prices. Simgot is one of these brands, selling the EM6L for about 100 bucks. It’s kind of a tough market given how many fantastic IEMs there are available at this price point. Can the EM6L stand out from the crowd of high-performing budget-friendly IEMs? And what can you expect in terms of sound signature?

Look and Feel
I appreciated the sleek, low profile black housing of the EM6L. The IEMs don’t feel cheap, but they avoid any frills or glitz. The shells are also light and felt soft and smooth in my ears throughout my listening session. The sound isolation was solid as well. So, no complaints here.
The EM6L combines an 8mm dynamic driver for the mid-low frequencies with two balanced armature drivers for the mids and highs. It also incorporates a 2-pin silver-plated OFC cable with a 3.5mm termination. The EM6L is easy to drive, and for this review, I paired it with my Astell & Kern SR30.

The EM6L is impressively multidimensional given the price point. There was ample depth with precise placement from behind to in front of the ear. While instruments may not reach soaring heights, the stereo field imaging feels wide and intricate. And overall, there is enough spacial color to create an authentic 3D listening experience.
There’s good speed to the bass. It’s deep and impactful, with sub-bass frequencies creating a rumble in the jaw. At the same time, the low end remains clean and well-controlled, never bloated or creeping into the higher frequencies. Acoustic instruments in this range feel smooth and natural, never carrying any artificial weight or color.
A nicely balanced midrange that includes a good dose of low-mid presence with just a touch of emphasis in the higher midrange. As a result, tracks hold plenty of body while also bringing an intimate flavor to vocal performances. The overall profile is natural, and acoustic instruments are handled gently and delicately. And overall, there’s a softness to the presentation that makes the listening experience super sweet and easy.
The highs are smooth, showcasing velvety vocals and sparkly percussion. There’s a nice balance here between richness and buoyancy, that gives the highs a fluid, easy-going feel. And although I didn’t feel like I was missing out on any treble, the peaks were never piercing or fatiguing.
I would say that the EM6L outperforms for the price, but this is true for so many IEMs at this price point. While the EM6L may not be the most memorable IEM I’ve heard, it showcases a crowd-pleasing and versatile balance. With a rich bass, easy mids and smooth highs, it’s hard to dislike this sound signature. If you’re looking for a particularly bright or dynamic profile, this isn’t it. But if you’re in search of a skillful all-rounder that’s easy on the ears, the EM6L is a fine choice.
