Good as earbuds go


Pros: Rich Bass

Cons: Too big for my ears, Bad build quality

They really don't fit in my ears as they are too large in diameter. They also leak a lot because of this. They would not work in a public center.   I would say sound wise they are pretty similar to the E212.   Build Quality: There is a lot to be desired here. They do not have nearly as nice a build quality as the E212s. The cord is crappy, and they feel like the cheap earbuds they give you on the plane. Treble: It is rolled off but not that bad. It certainly isn't good for listening to sopranos however. Midrange: Not as effortless as the Sony MH1Cs. Not as warm either. Richer than the E212 Bass: Very comparable to the Sony MH1Cs. It is rich, and loud, but not...

Negative Reviews


Mainstream earphone


Pros: You get what you paid. The Fish bones

Cons: Not very sturdy, Bloated bass, Confortless, Harsh highs

I'll be short : I was very disappointed when I listened to the PAA1-Pro the first time. I found bloated bass, harsh highs and a typical mainstream V-shaped sound signature. So, I began a hundred hour burn-in and retry it... Nothing changed a lot. Maybe the highs became less harsh but still not what I would call pleasant to my ears. I put them away a time and come back to them after two weeks. Still nothing changed. So, I take my time and passed few weeks with them, switching between different sources like : Sansa Fuze, iPod Classic, Teclast X3, SMSL sap-4s, JDS Labs cMoy (with the stock opamp) even the Aune T1 but, eventually, I have to admit that I never find them pleasant to my ears. ...

HSA PAA-1Pro - Generic looks, but terrific sonic ability for the price.


Pros: Sound, Detail and Balance, Value, Case & Accessories (especially foam covers)

Cons: Generic Design, Awful Cable, Size and Comfort (Fit)

Most of this review is taken from my original longer comparison review here : http://www.head-fi.org/t/679360/review-hisound-audio-paa1-pro-earbuds-e212-iems-opposites-in-almost-every-way    For this review - ignore the green bars on the side - it's not where I set mine (something wrong with Head-Fi rating system).  I listed price at $50 as that is the normal price for these buds.  In reality I paid $10 (the cost of the shipping).     Introducing HiSound Audio's PAA1-Pro   I'm always a sucker for trying new things - you never know when you'll find a hidden gem.  So when I saw HiSound Audio's offer, giving Head-fiers an opportunity to...

Very Competitive at price range Earbuds


Pros: Crazy bass, good amount of accessories

Cons: sizing issue (slightly large for my ears), Cable can move into the housing, non tangle free cables

My ratings are /5 in comparison to their cost.   Lows: Lows, the lows are definitely the highlight of these earbuds in my opinion. The bass reaches deep and has good impact/volume. For the lows alone i would give these earbuds a 4.5/5   Mids: The mids are definately towards the warm sounding side. They arent overpowered by the bass however feel to blend with them instead. Otherwise, vocals are clean 4/5   Highs: The Highs are the bane of these earbuds, due to the strong mids and lows, i feel underwhelmed by the highs of this bud. Overall they were lacking in comparison. Not much to say otherwise. 1.5-2/5   Misc Pros: Good amount of...

Awesome Earbuds, Best I've Heard Under $100


Pros: Sound, Nice Case & Accessories, Very Comfortable For Me, Exceptional Customer Service

Cons: Annoying Cable, Not So Great Build Quality

First, I'd like to thank Jack Fu of HiSound Audio for sending me a review sample of the PAA-1 Pro and the E212. It was certainly very generous of him to send multiple units to so many people. I am in no way affiliated with HiSound Audio and this will be a completely non biased review. Tested with my HDP-R10, Sansa Clip+ and SGS3 international version. More on amping later. I have burnt these in for a while now, but not for the 100 hours that HiSound recommends. I will change the review if I feel like the sound changes after burn in but others have not noticed much if any change after burn in.      Design, Accessories & Unboxing Being a vented earbud, there is...
