    The F1 a remarkable IEM with a unique look.

    4.0/5,
    Pros - Great clarity in mid in treble, sturdy stock cable with aluminum fittings, comfortable stock ear tips.
    Cons - Unusual shape may not be comfortable for everyone.
    The F1 is surprisingly one of the best vocal centric earphones I've ever heard with excellent details and instrument separation. Bass is light but has enough details to make it not be anemic like other mid centered earphones.

    The presentation is quite pleasant opening the box to see the way they're displayed. KB ear may be a newcomer to the game but I was immediately impressed with a great looking thin but quality feeling stock cable, unusual in most earphones around this price range.
    Specs

    22-ohms , 20-20KHz , 105 db@ 10mW , MMCX cable with 3.5 termination

    This is IEM may look unusual but it handles vocals and acoustic music exceptionally and I would definitely recommend it for it's intended purpose. IMG_20190826_172500684.jpg

    Cheap IEMs with great clairty

    4.0/5,
    Pros - Looks neato

    Has amazing clarity

    Great soundstage

    Cables are detachable so you can maybe it bluetooth or replace it easily if it breaks
    Cons - The shape isn't the best for my ears

    Lacking bass

    Sound out of the box isn't amazing (had to mess with the EQ)
    So these are the new Chi-fi IEMs by KBear. I would say what makes these stand out is that they are only sporting one BA driver, which chi-fi IEMs usually go overboard on.

    My initial thoughts on them are that they sounded thin and lacking. Which can be adjusted by increasing the volume and adjusting your equalizer. Since these aren't retrofitted with 5 drivers like most chi-fi IEMs, it sounds great even if you listen to music at max volume (still would not recommend that thought!).

    The KBear F1's strong suits are it's amazing clarity and balance, which brings the soundstage and the details of your music forward. I tested this while listening to various musicians with amazing instrumentals in their music (Jimi Hendrix, Pink Floyd, etc..)

    Can't go wrong with these at its price-point though. Although there are many other alternatives if you desire a different sound signature or if you want a fuller bass. Or you can just buy it to show of to your friends, it seems to look cool enough to get a lot of attention from my friends atleast .
