Wi Micro In-Ear Review

The Wi Micro In-Ear is packaged in a plain box containing the headphones, a case, extra eartips, and a foam guard for the 3.5mm stereo plug.  The packaging might easily mislead the casual consumer from the quality hardware hiding within, but once you put them in your ears and fire up some music, you may be whistling a different tune.

When it comes to comfort, the Micro In-Ear is a badass little headphone.  With its wire-thin build, it loops around your ear like any other number of high-end earphones.  However, the minuscule earpiece means this headphone has zero bulk, and fits inside my ears like a dream.  The wire-and-cable design is similar to MEE Audio’s M6 Pro, albeit with a more premium feel.  The over-ear design isn’t unlike Shure, Westone, or Audio Technica, but the thinner design translates into a more comfortable listening experience.

Once you get over the build, you realize there is some terrific sound in these headphones as well.  Not to bassy or trebly, with a decent balance to them, as well as some decent clarity and an overall complete lack of distortion.

While not exactly flat enough for me to love them for classical music, they still weren’t  bad.  And when it came to rock music and hip hop, hot damn, are these things good.

With a frequency range 15-20000 hertz and a low impedance of just 16 ohms, this headphone will work just fine with even the most portable of players, offering a fairly-standard sound stage.  Bass and treble remain clear, and the mids never seem to become sloppy or muddy.

How much will this set you back?  These earphones go for $189.  Are they worth it, though?  If you’re looking for quality below $200 and don’t mind that dynamic sound (as opposed to a perfectly flat sound), buy these headphones and love ’em.  If your ideal headphones are particularly bass-heavy, or if you need something entirely flat, or if you need a remote for your iPhone/Android Device, then keep looking.
