HiSound POPO review

Posted

Pros: •Fit- comfortable, and lightweight •Nice anti tangle cable •Great price •Great company •Plenty of ear tips included

Cons: •Some distortion when you crank it up (especially with an amp) •Female vocalists can sound a bit harsh at times- very high notes!

  I am always on the search for great in-ear headphones, however I always seem to find the same problem, because they are in ear, they tend to have very small drivers, meaning there is never much bass, and in most cases the highs are also messed up in an effort to get more bass! So I am always on the lookout for in-ear headphones that have good bass, yet have a nice flat frequency (meaning that the high’s and mid’s should also sound great)- a balanced sound. I find at the moment, there are a lot of new audio companies rolling out, one of these companies that suddenly caught my attention was HiSound, they are a group of audiophiles, who are passionate about sound. Although...

HisoundAudio PoPo~Rosewoods Bassmonster

Posted
      Hisoundaudio is famous for their DAP range especially the now discontinued Rocoo A and Rocoo AB and also some of their earphone range such as PAA 1. Lately, they have been coming out with lots of IEM to cater the market needs and the Hisoundaudio PoPo that is reviewed here is one of their latest IEM that uses woods instead of traditional metal or plastic to give a more natural presentation.   Specs: Type: Dynamic, In-Ear Size of driver: 9mm Impedance: 16 Ohm Sensitivity: 110db Maximum SPL (Sound pressure level): 127db(1khz, 1 Vrms) Frequency response: 16-23khz Earphone jack: 3.5mm Cable length: ...

The Rants And Raves Of A Digital Freak: A Hisound PoPo Sound Byte

Posted

Pros: good formfactor, comfortable, lots of tips to ensure a fit, very well built

Cons: will shine with only certain types of music, no pouch, no chin slide adjuster

                                                                  Disclaimer Those of us sitting at the back of the bus who love our music reserve the right to practice a healthy dose of skepticism involving audio gear as we ride along the long winding road that is life.  Until said gear has passed our personal expectations thus meriting the mantra of GOOD GEAR any and all reviewers/reviews will be taken with a grain of salt. As natural born cynics we also expect those around us to practice a healthy level of free...

Impressive bass

Posted

Pros: Bass

Cons: A somewhat darker sound

My review sample of the Hisoundaudio POP was provided free by Hisoundaudio but I'll try to do an unbiased summary of my thoughts.   Build/Fit   The wood used appears to be of high quality. The fire-engine red cable is reasonably thick and stiff and is rather eye-catching. The Y-split could have included a slider for convenience. Personally, I would have preferred a L-shaped jack instead of the straight jack.  A plus point is that the cable does not tangle easily. The negative would be the microphonics I've experienced when walking around with it. However, since it is not a sports headphone and no one would likely be using it for that, it should not be too big of...

Great value to performance.

Posted

Pros: Design, bass, timbre (wood housing), price, fit, multiple ear tips

Cons: Bass can be a bit excessive and treble is lacking detail and refinement.

Hello ladies and gents; I'll be doing a brief review on the Popos (recently renamed POP to my knowledge). First off I'd like to thank Jack from Hisound for giving me an opportunity to do a review on his product. So far its been a blast doing business with Hisound and I look forward to trying out new and improved offerings in the future.   Moving onto the prize (POP).     Bass:   What can I say about the Popo? For $60.00 you do get a great value for your money. The amount of bass is pretty surprising and I could see the bass heads enjoying these IEMs. While on certain tracks it can be a bit excessive, it's in no way a deal breaker for me. The more you...

HiSoundAudio Popo - Stylish looks and fun (bassy) sound

Posted

Pros: Looks (stylish), comfort, build quality, price, presentation of sound (for bass-lovers), tip selection, cable strength.

Cons: Tips all silicone, cable quite stiff & slightly microphonic, no chin slider, no storage pouch.

Introduction The HiSoundAudio Popo is a dynamic driver IEM - using an African Rosewood housing - with a warm, engaging , fun  - but very bassy sound signature.  I understand it currently has a retail price point around the 70-90USD mark.   Pre-amble (about me) I'm a 45 year old music lover.  I don't say audiophile - just love my music.  Over the last couple of years, I have slowly changed from cheaper listening set-ups to my current entry/mid-fi set-up.  I vary my listening from portable (i-devices + amp) to my desk-top's set-up (PC > coax > NFB-12 > HP).  My main headphones at the time of writing are the Sennheiser HD600s, HM5's, a...

Hisoundaudio POPO IEM

Posted

Pros: Aesthetics, fit, unrivaled bass response for price, nice mids, low price

Cons: Packaging/lack of accessories, cable microphonics, highs not terribly impressive

    First-off, I'd like to extend a big thank-you to Hisoundaudio for the review sample. It's not often that you find a company gracious enough to let you not only sample something, but actually keep it. And I'll start off by saying that I'm thrilled they let me keep it  Onto the POPO IEM. A bit of a strange name, granted, but this is a bit of a unique product. I'll step through the packaging/accessories, then talk design, fit, and build, then move onto sound.   NOTE: Included at the end is a TL;DR section for those of you who don't feel like reading the whole thing.   PACKAGING/ACCESSORIES: This is definitely where you see the fact that you...

Magic Wooden IEMs

Posted

Pros: Soundstage, Clear Mids, Detail

Cons: Sloppy Bass, Excessive bass,

HiSound POPO Review I would like to thank HiSound for giving me a pair of these wonderful headphones for review! As always my reviews strive to be as unbiased as possible, and I’m always welcoming suggestions on how to better organize my reviews, so if you have any comments, tips, or advice feel free to comment and let me know! Packaging and Build The packaging is very bland, and does not offer much other then protection during shipping. This is one area I think could be improved, seeing as how companies like DUNU which price similarly tend to come with things like carrying pouches. It did luckily come with a package of different sized ear tips, no adapters or carrying cases...
