Hidizs MS1 Galaxy


500+ Head-Fier
From A Galaxy Near At Hand
Pros: Fun and warm V-tuning, with a nice, pleasant midrange and smooth treble.
- Ideal set for everyday use and as a first choice for newcomers.
- Very comfortable and lightweight.
- Good cable for the price.
- Very good value for money.
Cons: Minimal accessory set, just enough, without even a storage bag.
- For the price, don't expect a technically outstanding set.
- The tuning is soft in general, especially in the treble, which is also not very extended.

Hidizs is still in the race. In a very short time it has presented a whole range of IEMS. From the top of the range MS5 (1DDD+4BA), to more economical and versatile hybrids such as the MS3 (1DDD+2BA), to its latest planar technology model, the MP145. Now, it is back with a very economically priced IEMS, the MS1 Galaxy, a sub-$20 IEMS featuring a high-performance 10.2mm dual-circuit magnetic dynamic driver customised by Hidizs. Its PU+PEEK high polymer composite diaphragm is recognised as the most stable and mature diaphragm solution in the driver manufacturing industry. German high-density Makrolon resin is used for the capsules, which guarantees excellent stability, skin-friendly comfort and non-irritant properties, making it safe for long-term use. The injection moulded design ensures both durability and a premium look, providing a feeling of sophistication and quality. The Hidizs MS1 Galaxy have been tuned based on B&K's HATS target frequency response curve, following the guidelines of the H-2019 target frequency response curve. After extensive testing by the Hidizs Acoustic Laboratory, the MS1-Galaxy features a full-range non-linear frequency distortion of less than 0.05%. Of course, the MS1s use a 2Pin 0.78mm cable to increase compatibility with any use, be it with a balanced replacement cable or Bluetooth devices that adapt to such a connection. They have an impedance of 32Ω and a sensitivity of 108dB which makes them relatively easy to use with today's smartphones. Let's see what the overall performance of this new model is and, of course, what they sound like.

The Hidizs MS1 Galaxy comes in a white box with very compact dimensions, 111x76x42mm. On the front face is a realistic photo of the capsules and their colour. At the top left is the Hidizs logo in silver ink. In the same way is the model name, bottom left. At the bottom right is a symbol indicating the use of a dynamic driver and the Hi-Res logo, in the same silver ink. On both sides there is an anime girl and the logo and model name are repeated above and below. On the back are the specifications in several languages, including English. It is also specified whether or not the cable has a microphone. After removing the vertical sleeve, a white foam mould protected by a white cardboard cover is revealed. The MS1 capsules are embedded in it. After removing this layer, you can access the bottom of the box which contains the rest of the accessories, protected by transparent zip bags. In summary, the contents are as follows:

  • The two Hidizs MS1 Galaxy capsules.
  • One cable with 2Pin 0.78mm connection and gold-plated SE 3.5mm plug.
  • Three white translucent silicone tips, sizes SxMxL.
  • Instruction manual.
  • Social media card.
  • Business card of the anime girl, named Lin.

Apart from the fact that if you don't present or put an anime girl on the box it looks like you can't sell IEMS, the MS1s come with just enough to function. Any storage accessories are missing, but there is no bag, let alone a zippered case. Brands would do well to save any anime girl designs, make a product-focused presentation and invest the money in protecting the IEMS during storage. Very basic.

Construction and Design

The capsules are medium sized, made of high density German Makrolon resin, with a very good finish. They have the classic semi-custom shape in the shape of an African continent. Their outer face has a very well achieved holographic pattern, on which is the Hidizs logo in silver ink. It is available in four colours, black, red, blue and transparent. The 2Pin 0.78mm connection is mounted on a translucent plastic oval base with gold-plated connections. The connector is flat, which makes it easy to use any replacement cable. On my transparent model you can see that the dynamic driver is close to the mouthpiece and the rest of the inside of the capsule is hollow, only the wires to the cable connection interface are visible. There are two grey moles with the channel lettering on the inside. There is a dynamic driver breather hole. The mouthpieces are metallic and have three parts, the base, the longer central part with a diameter of 4.8mm and the mouthpiece rim with a top diameter of 6mm. The orifice is protected by a dense metal grille.
The cable consists of two coiled strands. Each has a kind of metal braid and a transparent PVC sheath. The 3.5mm SE connector has an L-sleeve which mixes a black plastic part with a metal cylinder. The splitter piece is an equal but longer cylinder. The 2Pin connectors have an angled transparent plastic sleeve. Each of them has a blue or red mole to indicate the channel. Both sides have semi-rigid, ear-shaped sleeves.
There is nothing new in the shape of the capsules. But the use of quality resins and the familiar lightweight/ergonomic design is appreciated. The metal mouthpiece adds to the value of the construction, although the diameter is one of the wide ones, for use with wide-channel tips. The cable is nothing special, but there is an effort in the use of the wire mesh that takes it away from being a totally simple and thin cable, although it has a bit of microphony and slight stiffness. It comes with a sleeve to protect the 3.5mm connector. The low weight of the capsules is also very welcome.

Adjustment and Ergonomics

With such a popular design there is not much to say. Classic semi-custom shape with a capsule made of very light resin. The interior has no edges or ridges, the surface is soft and smooth, there is hardly any friction or contact with the ear parts. Good projection of the nozzles and good angle to the ear canals. The width of the mouthpieces implies the use of wide canal tips which guarantees a higher clarity. Very suitable for tip rolling, although the diameter itself limits the insertion which can only be shallow or, hopefully, subtly recessed. Depending on the tips, a good isolation can be achieved. With foam-filled or foam-only tips, this insulation is improved and the sound pressure and bass performance are improved.
Overall, the comfort is quite high, the low weight, the ease of insertion, the almost no rotation and the great fit allow daily use, in public transport and also for sport. Very good.

The profile of the Hidizs MS1 Galaxy could be summed up as a warm V, with a smooth transition between mid-high and first treble. The mid-bass is emphasised, with a good level of energy in the sub-bass, but without being decisive in this aspect. The mids are slightly dipped, especially in the middle, while the rise towards the treble is slight, something that avoids a brighter and more polarised sound, but ensures a good level of harmony, smoothness and a certain balance.

The punch in the low end is authoritative, with a medium speed, where the feeling of rubberiness is more noticeable in continuous bass lines than in single bass drums. Recovery is not very fast, which implies that feeling of a somewhat saturated space in the lower range. Thus, the MS1s are more adept at rhythmic bases than at processing more continuous, overlapping or unfiltered bass lines. In such cases, the energy level can be high and can even overshadow the other ranges. However, this applies to the sense of volume it generates and the response in representing multiple layers of complex bass. However, it suffers no loss of control when reproducing such situations, as it is able to recreate them while maintaining a relatively natural and powerful feel, vibrant and with a good dose of texture. The bass is slightly rumbling, there's no denying that. It's one of those that you feel in your ears, it's sensory and that vibration I'm talking about resonates in your ears. Clearly, this is a bass with quite a lot of power, a noticeable presence, which produces a great deal of fun and enjoyment for those who love slightly thick and heavy bass. Bass-heads may find the MS1s quite satisfying and they can be great allies for sport. Personally, I like that bass boost when playing sports outdoors.
In my classic very low frequency pure tone test, it feels that frequencies below 40Hz have a good balance between colour and sensory capability. Whereas above 40Hz is when the timbre becomes more natural, offering that nice, rough texture that vibrates in my ears. It is true that you notice the thickness of the notes, the power and the average speed that makes them bigger and juicier. But there is also a dark component that gives it a quite appreciable dose of warm realism. For the use and enjoyment of those passionate about bass.

Hidizs MS1 Galaxy 11_r.jpgHidizs MS1 Galaxy 12_r.jpg


Coming from a low end as notorious as this one, I was thinking of a more recessed midrange. However, the part that could suffer the most, such as the male voices, are not so far away, but occupy a good middle ground. They have a good level of physicality, warmth and softness. It is clear that this is not an analytical presentation, but is more musical and homogeneous, with a pleasantly medium thickness of notes. The overtones are not very prominent, while the harmonics are slightly nuanced, offering a soft, warm, subtly dark, even timbre. The fleshy body coming from the bass settles in the initial part of the mids and that is what creeps into the more powerful male voices to maintain its presence, even to gain in volume. It is true that this volume, which is superior in the bass, sometimes tries to push these voices, as well as other instruments, aside, limiting their space on the stage.
The female voices feel quite velvety, blending softness, warmth and just the right amount of excitement to gain a higher degree of vigour. On the other hand, they are free of sibilance and always secure, never strident. The whole is remarkably pleasant and enjoyable as well. On the other hand, the instrumentation doesn't feel penalised in its representation, but don't expect a very high level of detail or resolution, due to the warmth, the homogeneity of the sound and the thickness of the notes. Don't get me wrong, it's not a coarse sound or lacking in technique, the MS1s have good dynamics and don't do anything wrong, as long as you're OK with the space the bass occupies and its energy level. But their effort is to be more complacent, than technically decisive. Nevertheless, I would like to emphasise once again that the mids are quite well presented despite the power of the bass.

Hidizs MS1 Galaxy 13_r.jpgHidizs MS1 Galaxy 14_r.jpg


They begin by maintaining the energy level of the mid-highs and open with a controlled, gentle sparkle, but with a degree of vivacity that keeps them from being dark or overly nuanced. They are not completely clean or crisp, but their control zone is also light and then there is a splash that tries to regain presence and some sparkle. The result is still soft, but the performance is fuller in its first half than expected. It is true that the air zone is not very present and suffers from some extension in the upper treble. The execution of the high notes has an average finesse, lacking sufficient edge to offer a higher level of definition, although it is true that the result does not detract from the sound as a whole. One might conclude, as I have commented on other occasions, that the treble fulfils its role, feeling relatively inoffensive, with a polite sparkle, medium clarity and a flare that can have a certain level of spirited excitement.

Hidizs MS1 Galaxy 15_r.jpgHidizs MS1 Galaxy 16_r.jpg

Soundstage, Separation

The volume occupied by the lower zone expands the scene in depth, width, even height. The overall space is not very large, though, which is why the rest of the range sometimes feels occupied by the lower end. In a realistically sized soundstage for this price range, the space is finite and the bass presence feels close, almost in the foreground. This gives a good sense of laterality, but clumps the notes together, limiting an expansive upper range feel. In this way, the scene appears relatively rounded, becoming oval towards the sides, but without reaching too much depth due to the proximity of the bass.
The average level of resolution, the thickness of the notes, the warmth and homogeneity of the sound enhances the harmony, but prevents details from being more volatile and prominent. The musical cohesion limits a perception of a cleaner and darker background, as well as the level of transparency. Despite all this, the MS1s do not come across as stuffy or claustrophobic, although there is some unavoidable pressure that comes close to the listener. Finally, I was surprised by a good level of incipient detail in later layers of the music. The MS1s have been able to insinuate micro details that I wasn't expecting. It doesn't reproduce them clearly, but, at times, they can be intuited. Quite curious.

KBEAR Rosefinch

The industry of inexpensive IEMS is very diversified and there is always a clear competition for any model. In this case, the KBEAR Rosefinch is the ideal opponent for the Hidizs MS1 Galaxy. With a very similar, if not almost the same price, the Rosefinch has many similarities to the MS1. The size and shape of the capsules are similar. The main difference is the metal outer face of the Rosefinch, which gives it a heavier point of weight. While the inner face of the KBEARs is more depressed and lowered at the edge, the MS1s are somewhat thicker, with that peak at the end of the inner face that seeks the ergonomics of the bell, as an anchor. As far as accessories are concerned, both are minimal, but it is worth noting that the MS1s have a better cable than the generic and hackneyed Rosefinch cable. Ergonomically they are almost identical if it weren't for the protrusion of the MS1's rim, which is the only thing that might make a difference for some. For me, this point is an improvement in favour of the Hidizs and their lighter weight as well, even if it is not very distinguishable in the ears. The Rosefinch are 16Ω, the Hidizs 32Ω and despite the higher sensitivity of the MS1s, the KBEARs are subtly easier to move.
In terms of sound, the graphs are very eloquent and the differences are obvious, or rather, the similarities. Both graphs, from 200Hz onwards, are very similar. From that point back, the Rosefiches rise steadily towards the sub-bass, offering a more powerful, energetic, wide and deep low end. But it is also more noticeable and intrusive. Their greater presence affects the rest of the bands, offering a more oppressive volume than the Hidizs. Really, the graph says it all, the level of vocals and instrumentation are at the same level, while the bass excels in the Rosefinch. Whereas, in the MS1s, there is a lot of power, but it is better integrated with the rest of the frequencies. Basically, the Rosefinch is like an MS1 that has been equalised to boost 6dB at 20Hz, with all its consequences. If you are looking for bass-free songs, those similarities are obvious and there just seems to be a bit more clarity and transparency in the MS1s. The Rosefinch's seem a little darker, with a hint of lower resolution. But the midrange and treble presentation is very similar, with a drop of more brightness and extension in the Hidizs, but this is something that could be changed with the use of different tips, even cables. On songs with full frequency range, the Rosefinch's suffer in representing detail, the wide, energetic bass masks any attempt to recreate detail. On the other hand, the Hidizs manage to show it, even if only in an insinuating way. In this sense, the KBEARs are niche IEMS, while the MS1s can be much more all-round IEMS, despite the power of their low end. In general, the background is more visible in the MS1s, the separation is more obvious, there is a little more light and freedom in their presentation. The Rosefinch's fall victim to their big bass and sub-bass rumble, oppressing the scene and detail, despite their more obvious depth.

The Hidizs MS1 Galaxy are IEMS with a fun and warm V-tuning, very light and comfortable. They are perfect allies for those looking for an energetic sound, very suitable for everyday use and highly recommended for sports, due to their powerful low end. But despite the power of their bass, vocals and instruments aren't distant and you get a remarkable overall musicality, softened by homogeneous and friendly treble. Their performance for the price is good and they may be a first choice for those looking for powerful bass, but without losing the rest of the frequencies, offering a more all-round suitability than other rivals, as well as a smooth, attractive and melodious sound. Also not to be overlooked is its high level of ergonomics, its fit is durable and firm, with a negligible weight. All these features emphasise its value as an IEMS for daily multidisciplinary use, thanks also to the choice of a more than acceptable cable with microphone.

Hidizs MS1 Galaxy Review!

Good day! After 5 days of casual and critical listening, here’s my written review for the Hidizs MS1 Galaxy. The third lightyear!

  • I don’t read FR graphs. I only use my ears, as how earphones should be used.
  • Hidizs sent this unit to me in an exchange for an honest, unbiased review. Rest assured that this review will do its best to devoid from any bias/es as much as possible.
  • The following remarks and observations shall be made and owned only by me.
  • No monetary compensation is/was involved before, during, and after the period of creation of this review.
  • Your mileage may (and always, will) vary.
Burn-in time: 4-8 hours per day, 5 days.

  • - Non-HiFi smartphone (Infinix Note 12 G96), PC.
  • - Shanling UA1 Plus
  • - Sony Xperia X Compact
  • -Local Files via Foobar, YouTube Music, Deezer, and Qobuz with UAPP.
IEM/Earbud/Setup configuration: stock medium clear eartips, any form of EQ or MSEB off, 3.5 SE plug, 40-60% volume, low gain and high gain.

Sound signature:
  • The Hidizs MS1 Galaxy sports the usual Hidizs house sound - a fun, mild-v-shaped sound signature. Compared to the MS1- Rainbow, this sounds a lesser in bass quantity.
  • This region is the highlight of the MS1-Galaxy. It is elevated, thumpy with a good amount of punch and rumble. Midbass and subbass are fairly equal, and are average in terms of attack, decay, and texture. Bassheads on a budget will be happy with this IEM catering their bassy genres.
  • The mids isn’t the strong suit of the MS1 Galaxy. It is mildly recessed, will sound thin at times, lacks some “openness” and suffers from some midbass bleed, making the lower mids warm but not too much to make it sound congested. Lower mids have good thickness and texture most of the time. Upper mids are slightly elevated compared to the lower mids, with a decent amount of clarity, air, and sparkle. There isn’t any form of sibilance or harshness in this area, which also means that this IEM can also be used with those ears who are sensitive to excessive upper frequencies.
  • As for the treble, it is fairly extended, but not as elevated compared to its lows. Trebleheads may find this lacking or rolled off, but will be just fine to most people. Detail retrieval is alright for its asking price and is not capable of showing clear microdetails which is fine since this IEM is not made for critical listening.
Soundstage, Imaging, and separation:
  • “Mediocre” is the first word that came into my mind when I heard this IEM. Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t anything “bad” in this region of the MS1 galaxy, but this isn’t the strong suit or competitive aspect of this IEM in this price point. The soundstage is wider that deep, with a good amount of height and depth. Separation and layering is average with some congestion on very busy tracks. Imaging is accurate for the most part, and is sufficient enough for competitive gaming.
Other IEM comparisons!

  • The Duo leans to a more neutral, refined sound profile compared to the MS1 Galaxy. It has a lesser bass presence but punches and decays quickly when compared. Mids are more open on the Duo and more detailed, but is brighter and has peaks when compared to the MS1 Galaxy. Treble is also more extended on the Duo. The soundstage is a bit wider on the MS1 Galaxy, but not by much. The rest are better in quality on the Duo.
VS Kiwi Ears Cadenza
  • The Cadenza is more cohesive, smoother sounding than the MS1 Galaxy. Both don't have the advantage in technical performance, but the Cadenza is noticeably more lush and rich in sound character compared to the MS1 Galaxy.
VS Simgot EW200
  • The Simgot EW200 is better overall in terms of technical and tonal performance. It is more open, airy, detailed, but is brighter when compared. The fit and comfort is better on the MS1 Galaxy though.

  • All-rounder, fun sound signature.
  • Fairly controlled, elevated bass.
  • Decent mids quality in terms of presence.
  • Non-fatiguing upper frequencies.
  • Good technical performance for its asking price.
  • Aesthetically-pleasing design among all the MS1 variants (subjective)
  • Very good, tight build quality!
  • Excellent fit, comfort, and isolation.
  • Very good mic quality!
  • Literally easy to drive.
  • Mids may sound thin at times.
  • Mids lack definition to my liking. (subjective)
  • Technicalities are good, but nothing to write home about.
  • No in-line volume control buttons.
  • Barebone accessories. A pouch and/or a cable winder would’ve been a treat for everybody for its asking price.

The Hidizs MS1 Galaxy exists as one of the “options of the many” IEMs due to its all-rounder sound signature. While not be anyone’s first choice, the Hidizs Galaxy MS1 performs well for its asking price and suits well as an everyday-carry IEM since it is very reliable on conference calls and casual music listening on commutes.

Pairing recommendation/s:

  • Source: This sounds just fine when plugged straight to a phone due to its easy to drive nature. However, using an external dongle or DAC wouldn’t hurt.
  • Eartips: The eartips are alright and enough for the most part. You may always use your preferred eartips.
  • Cable gets the job done and is sufficient for the most part. You may always use your preferred cable.
Thank you for reading!

Hidizs MS1-Galaxy: thick sound for a few dollars
Pros: - Super punchy and authoritative bass with rumbly sub-bass
- Non fatiguing warm signature
- The stock cable is acceptable
- Comfortable shells and good isolation
- Price
Cons: - Treble lacks extension and sparkle
- Not the most detailed and resolving set you’ll find in its price range
- Only one set of tips included and they aren’t that good


Hidizs is not an unknown brand in the audiophile community, especially thanks to their DAPs that were discussed and appreciated on many audio-hobbyists’ forums.
Instead, their IEMs weren’t among the most popular around, but they have recently started promoting them and it seems like many people are now trying their products.

Disclaimer: the Hidizs MS1-Galaxy were sent by Hidizs free of charge in order to be able to write a honest review. I do not represent Hidizs in any way and this is not promotional content.
The Hidizs MS1-Galaxy are being sold for 15.99$(no mic) and 16.99$ (with mic) on Hidizs’s website and on Amazon.com.

  • Cable → 1,2m copper silver-plated cable with 0.78mm 2-PIN connectors for the IEMs and MMCX connector for the microphone
  • Plug Type → L-shaped gold plated 3,5mm jack connector


The packaging is very simple, as shown in the photo, and contains:
  • The MS1 Galaxy
  • The cable
  • 3 pairs of eartips
  • User manual

Design and Build Quality​

The MS1-Galaxy look pretty good in their well-built and transparent plastic shells, and the faceplate has a shiny texture that is pleasant to look at when reflecting sunlight or other types of light.
They are very lightweight but they don’t give a “cheap” feeling when in the hands, even though one can definitely guess the price range of the IEMs.



The cable is not bad for the price, and even though I’ve definitely seen better cables this is better than what’s provided with KZ or CCA IEMs, for instance.
It is not prone to tangle (at least from my experience) and it’s not affected by any kind of microphonics effect.


Comfort and Isolation​

The MS1-Galaxy are super comfortable thanks to the rounded shape with no sharp edges or protruding wings, but one has to find the right tips at first since the stock ones didn’t meet my expectations. Once the right tips are found, you almost forget these are in your ears, both because of the weight and because of how the shells are shaped.
Isolation is average for the price range and considering the materials used for the shell.

Do they need an amplifier?
The Hidizs MS1 Galaxy are easy to drive and don’t need an amplifier.

Sound signature
The Hidizs MS1-Galaxy are bassy and warm with smooth treble. Hidizs markets these as Harman tuned but in fact they are almost L-shaped to my ears.

Lows: the lows are emphasized, with a particular focus on the sub-bass. It’s rumbly, deep and provides a truly solid foundation to every track. Bass is also emphasized, it’s very punchy and thick and even though it’s not speedy, the textures are not bad.
If you like bass, you’ll like the MS1-Galaxy, and I am pretty sure many bassheads will like these babies.

Mids: the midrange is slightly recessed but it’s not thin in the lower-midrange. Instead, male vocals sound deep, even though sometimes the bass can bleed and show some tendency to overshadow them. Female vocals don’t sound excellent, but they are reproduced with a lot of intimacy and their timbre is mostly on point. Instruments take a hit in resolution and separation due to the big bass and very warm timbre, but even at that point they still sound pretty natural.

Highs: the treble is on the safe side, it’s warm, smooth and also lacks some air and sparkle on top (which can be good news for many, bad news for others).
By no means this is something I’d suggest to those seeking for very open, resolving and detailed sets, since this is not what the MS1-Galaxy can be proud of (one should also expect this considering the overall tuning).

Soundstage is above average for the price range, with very good width and a nice sense of height. Sure, depth is not like on more expensive sets, but there aren’t many IEMs in this price range that can give a bit of depth perception.
Imaging is not top notch, let’s say adequate for the price.

Some comparisons

Hidizs MS1-Galaxy vs CCA CRA

Sub-bass is more rumbly on the MS1-Galaxy, more controlled on the CRA. Bass is slightly tighter and faster on CRA, a bit slower, more textured and more authoritative on the MS1-Galaxy.
The midrange is recessed on both, but vocals sound slightly more forward on the CRA. Instruments generally sound slightly better and more open on the CRA.
Treble is much safer on the MS1-Galaxy whereas the CRA are very bright. The MS1-Galaxy lack some air and sparkle but they are practically fatigue-free, while the CRA are more detailed and airy but they are more fatiguing for longer sessions.
Soundstage is bigger on the MS1-Galaxy, imaging is on par more or less.
Build quality is very similar, MS1-Galaxy’s cable is better. Comfort is on par and so is Isolation.

Hidizs MS1-Galaxy vs Blon BL-03

Sub-bass is just a touch more present on the BL-03, whereas bass is not that different in terms of quantity even though BL-03’s bass is slightly slower and fatter (also more textured).
The midrange is recessed on both, with male vocals sounding very similarly even though female vocals are much better on the BL-03. Treble is a bit more emphasized on the Galaxy, though, with the BL-03 sounding warmer and a tad smoother on top (with even less treble extension, though).
Soundstage is bigger on the MS1-Galaxy, imaging is better on the MS1-Galaxy.
Build quality is better on the Blon BL-03 thanks to their metal shells, while the MS1-Galaxy come with a much better cable. The MS1-Galaxy are generally more comfortable and have better isolation.

Hidizs MS1-Galaxy vs Moondrop Chu​

Sub-bass is more emphasized and less controlled on the MS1-Galaxy, while the Moondrop Chu have a more controlled sub-bass that cannot rumble as on the MS1-Galaxy.
Bass is more emphasized, punchy and fat on the MS1-Galaxy, whereas the Moondrop Chu have a faster, tighter and more controlled bass.
The midrange is much more recessed on the MS1-Galaxy, that also happen to have less forward lower-mids and upper mids. As a consequence, the midrange sounds better on the Chu, with better instruments’ reproduction and more accurate male and female vocals (even though female vocals can definitely become hot sometimes).
Treble is more extended, airy and detailed on the Chu, whereas the MS1-Galaxy sound less fatiguing and warmer overall.
Soundstage is bigger on the MS1-Galaxy, imaging is better on the Chu but the instruments are reproduced in a smaller stage so the sense of “pinpointing” is slightly limited by that.
The build quality of the Chu is generally better but the faceplate painting will chip overtime (even though the materials are durable and solid). The MS1-Galaxy are enclosed in a plastic shell instead and they are also more lightweight.
The MS1-Galaxy’s cable is removable and it’s more than decent, while the Chu have a fixed cable which isn’t properly the best around. Comfort is on par and so applies for the isolation.

Final Thoughts​

The Hidizs MS1-Galaxy are a very safe buy in their price bracket: they sound punchy, fun, warm and they are also very comfortable.
They are not excellent when it comes to resolution, detail or treble extension, but the overall sound signature is pleasant and there’s little to complain about: they’re a well done basshead set with a pretty big stage and they are being sold at a very reasonable price.

Build Quality

Made from plastic, it is pretty lightweight and comfortable to wear for long listening session though if I must be honest, it feels rather cheap.
It also has a lot of colors to pick, the color choice itself reminds me of a candy.
Cable is pretty good for its price, solid, no microphonic and not easy to get tangled.

Is very comfortable for long listening session thanks to its super light weight build, it pretty much disappear from my ear.

Tested using Hidizs AP80 Pro-X, Shanling M3X, iFi ZEN DAC V2, Moondrop Dawn PRO

Tonality in General : Mid-bass Boosted Harman Warm

Bass : it has generous bass shelf just like any other Hidizs IEM, it has a boost ranging from sub-midbass, the bass presentation on this set for its price is very satisfying, not a bass head quantity, but it has a deep rumbly bass without muddying the mids, the bass speed is on the slower side but it still can be used for metal and double pedal songs.

Midrange : mellow and lush, is probably the words that I would use to describe the midrange of the MS1-Galaxy.

It is certainly free from shout and sibilance and is pretty balanced with all of the frequency spectrum (bass and treble), it means that it doesn't stand out like a sore thumb but it also not getting drowned out in the bass / treble.

Treble : smooth but airy, it has a pretty safe treble tuning for all of the treble sensitive folks out there.
The layering of the treble is pretty basic but is expected given the super affordable price. (probably I'm just nitpicking at this point now).

Overall tonality of the MS1-Galaxy I'd say is pretty mellow and relaxed for long listening session.

If you want an IEM that can be used as a background sound this set is probably pretty good at doing that.
The MS1-Galaxy is not demanding your attention at all, it just there, pretty relaxing sound.

Technicality :

Stage :
Average, not the widest soundstage but not small either, it doesn't has exact wall placement, so it will presents it sound like on an empty void.

Imaging : 2.5D sounding, definitely not holographic but not 2D sounding either, I guess its pretty good for its price.

Separation and Positioning : Separation is above average, it has generous bass without sacrificing sound separation, positioning is also decent, tested on game such as Valorant, you can easily identify where the sound is coming from.

For the Comparison part, just ask me in the comment section.

Conclusion :

The Hidizs MS1-Galaxy is recommended for person that want a mellow and relaxing sound signature from an IEM that also can be used as a background sound while doing their activity, it also has some pretty colors if you're into that kind of thing.

Personally myself use the MS1-Galaxy while doing work and it serves me pretty well without making me lose concentration on what I'm doing.

Though as always, please do use your own judgement, myself here as a reviewer only helping you guys to have more data for you to process by yourself.

The MS1 Galaxy is a more budget friendly offering from the company. It comes in a responsible package with Small to Large tips, a cable that is decent quality and the MS1.
The MS1 one is built like a typical IEM in its price range, very light weight and plastic build. It is comfortable and provides adequate isolation.

The MS1 Galaxy presents with a warm V-shaped signature.
The Bass is highlighted and forward. The Sub-Bass is king here giving a commanding boom to the mix. Mid-Bass is behind with a nice slam but is overshadowed by the SUB. Mids are as expected. Warm and thick bodied, with some recession and smooth details, vocals sound pleasant and are positioned slightly back. The Treble has enough energy to be noticed stringed instruments sound natural. Stage is average having a decent separation and accurate imaging but is far from a technical monster.

Conclusion: The Hidizs MS1 is an enjoyable budget IEM, it is targeted towards POP, Hip-Hop and Electronic music. The Bass is too overwhelming for Metal but Classic Rock sounds fine. It's a fun and warm IEM nothing too serious for gaming or critical listening.

This is a review of the Hidizs MS1 Galaxy, which Hidizs themselves have provided me to take a look at and review.



Hidizs have hit us once again with another banger with the MS1 Galaxy, a rendition of their most budget offering in the IEM market. It boasts a tuning that is, in my opinion, the quintessential one to attract newcomers in the hobby while adequately satisfying the modern audiophile. With a non-power-hungry driver, big soundstage, huge bass response, smooth midrange, and modest inclusion package, the MS1 Galaxy stands tall in the realm of introductory IEMs in the audiophile space today.

I firmly believe that Hidizs, together with Kinera and its subsidiaries, are the best in the Chi-Fi space when it comes to presenting their products to the general public. They perfectly blend together a sense of professionalism and simplicity to their packaging, evoking a strong sense that their products are of high-quality, not one of those ones that still aggressively try to sell you their product even if you already bought them. A picture of the IEM is up in front, together with its name and the logo of the company. However, at the sides, Hidizs attempts to conform to the "contemporary" aesthetic of Chi-Fi nowadays: waifus. There is a single waifu found at the side of the packaging, adorned in a futuristic outfit with a blue hue throughout. It's all fine and dandy, especially if it doesn't detract from the actual product inside of the box (ehem ehem).


➡️ 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐝𝐮𝐜𝐭 🏷️
The MS1 Galaxy is packaged similarly to its pricing contemporaries, which we've all seen before and doesn't need further explanation. Opening the box, we can see the MS1 Galaxy right away. The shimmering illusion brought about by the refracting graphic inside the shell produces a treat for the eyes, complemented by the subtle Hidizs logo and text in the front. I chose the white color for this IEM, which amplifies the rainbow-like coloration of the faceplate when the light hits it right. Overall, it's a pretty looking IEM up close and from afar.

➡️ 𝐏𝐚𝐫𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐮𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐬 🔖
As synonymous with any other budget IEMs, the MS1 Galaxy only offers the essentials you need to jump start your listening session. A nicely built 3.5mm cable with 2-pin connectors, a set of liquid silicone eartips, and your typical paperwork; these might be modest and spartan, but it gets the job done.

✳ The 𝐁𝐮𝐢𝐥𝐝 𝐐𝐮𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 🛠️
Coming in at that price, you wouldn't expect the MS1 Galaxy to be on par with the heavy hitters of the sub-$100 category. It feels and handles like a budget IEM, which is given at this price range. It feels adjacent to budget KBEar and early-era KZ products: made of very lightweight plastic with a brass nozzle sticking out of it. Hidizs has stated that the MS1 Galaxy is made out of a high-density resin material, and it does feel like that. It gives it a slight edge over the cheaper, more plastic-y feel of the other IEMs in this budget space. Even though these materials are given for the price, the MS1 Galaxy looks and feels fairly built with minimal to no seam lines poking through the body. Everything seems polished, with no rough edges or bits of extra plastic sticking out of it. Amidst all of these, I do admit that I wish that heftier materials were used in this one. It's possible these days to make a heftier-feeling IEM while being budget friendly, but in the end, it's the company's decision and it's probably just a nitpick.


✳ The 𝐂𝐨𝐦𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐭 🧸
The trade-off for lighter feeling IEMs is that they provide more superior comfort, especially when it is worn for longer hours. The same case can be said for the MS1 Galaxy, as this one is COMFORTABLE. Once you pick out the right tips for your size, this one can sit in your ears for hours upon hours on end without you feeling it. The combination of its innate lightweight property and the resin material they used in the MS1 Galaxy results in a superb wearing experience, which not many others in prices higher than this one can say. The absence of any protruding fins at the back also makes sure that there are no material rubbing in your inner ear, adding a cherry on top on how comfortable this is.

𝐎𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐥 𝐓𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲 🎧🎚️🎛️
- Despite the expansiveness that can be assumed from its name, the MS1 Galaxy brings in the MEAT. It is a fairly thick IEM in terms of overall sound, which can appease the general masses. The sub-bass mostly is the king: it brings the good kind of boom that will rumble in your ears for as long as you would like. This is perfect on EDM/Hip-Hop tracks, as it has that head-bopping power that is so revered by the masses. I love how it retains that likeable tonality while having a smoother midrange, a feat that is most often overlooked in IEMs with similar traits. Even though resolution takes quite a hit in the MS1 Galaxy, it sure is still an excellent experience, especially those who want to get started in this hobby.

𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭'𝐬 𝐇𝐨𝐭 🔥
- As told in the overall tonality, the MS1 Galaxy is a bass cannon. This is the glowing trait that will get most people hooked unto its sound, me included. It has a very huge bass presentation, focusing more on the sub-bass frequencies that bring in the oomph in every bass hit and note. It transitions quite hastily into the mid-bass region, which contributes to that fat, dirty bass that bassheads have a liking to. I'll just say meaningless audiophile words if I keep on detailing how the bass is king here; I prefer to keep it simple nowadays. If you like bass, you'll like this IEM. The fun doesn't stop there, either. The midrange is the real shocker for me on this one, as it supplies quite a smooth and bodied response despite the stereotypes for bass-heavy IEMs. It has this real analog feel that sounds unforced, benefitting all the instruments and vocal frequencies that reside in this part of the spectrum. I found male vocals quite more pleasing than female ones in the MS1 Galaxy, mostly because of its affinity for the bass region. Baritone vocals (like David Bowie's on Blackstar) are extra smooth and extra creamy, which elevates already-excellent performances on different tracks. Couple that with instruments that sound very warm, you got yourself a very cozy experience. Even in its bassy impression, the MS1 Galaxy will also work spectacularly well with acoustic tracks. To add a cherry on top of things, the soundstage on the MS1 Galaxy is impressive. Due to its mostly empty body in terms of actual physical structure, this IEM naturally transmits a very open stage for frequencies to play around. The fat bass presentation generally doesn't choke up the huge innate soundstage, which is growing quite rare in this type of tonality. I had flashbacks on how the Opera Factory OM1 was presented back then, which the MS1 Galaxy shares a lot of notes from.

𝐖𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐈𝐭'𝐬 𝐍𝐨𝐭 👇
- If you're looking for resolution and clarity, the MS1 Galaxy isn't for you. The combination of dirty bass and a bodied midrange means that the "tonal see-saw" is skewed towards on the warmer side of things. Although it has a fairly passable treble performance, those looking for exquisite detail retrieval and heaps of air will naturally find themselves disappointed when hearing what MS1 Galaxy has to offer. Although it isn't as dull as you would expect from the warmest IEMs out there, but it misses a lot of nuances that you typically find in more balanced IEMs. The imaging is also kind of lackluster even in the bigger soundstage presentation, as those two often go together and not against. Listening to live concerts can fall quite short when using this IEM, so keep that in mind if that's your stride in listening to music. I really am not sure how Hidizs marketed this as a Harman target-abiding IEM, as this is quite far from the general tonal feel of one that is. It's not a huge setback for me, but for those coming into these expecting a Harman-ish experience will find themselves perplexed.

Ey, Gojira is back! He looks so happy.

Great review, btw.
