Good review. I was considering the Monolith awhile back but didn't pull the trigger. I may now. Why didn't you turn the volume to 100% when hooked to your S 10+ (I have the same phone) and control the volume with the phone? Was there distortion?

Thank you! If I set the volume to 100% (or even just 80-90%) on the Monolith, and then controlled the volume on my phone. As I increased the volume on my phone, when I would get to about 40-50%, it would increase suddenly from a really low volume to unbearable levels. And then if I tried too turn it down even one click then it would be too quiet. Just wonky.
Pros: Surprisingly good tonal accuracy; superb low end.
Cons: Small headroom through low soundstage (typical for cylindrical budget earphones); 3.5 kHz peak may be not for everybody.

@Spie1904 Glad to know you're feeling the same! I actually thought about including comparisons for eartips and cables but eventually excluded as the writing would get a bit too long. They sure do bring a lot of change depending on different eartips. The stock blue tips are nice too but at the moment my favorite is Sedna Earfits Light Short version. If found them to be preserving the sturdy bass while opening up the upper ends with extra transparency.

Pros: Clear treble with extra powerful deep bass
Excellent ANC for the price
aptX and AAC support
Outstanding microphone
Long battery life
Comfortable for long hour wear
IP45 splash-proof
Cons: None from me
Pros: Made from sturdy material for premium build quality on its competitive price.Balanced to neutral sound signature, Precise punchy bass, Well-tuned natural mids, forward mids on female vocals, good instrument separation, spacious soundstage and bright and airy treble.
Cons: Not for bassheads who wants more deep visceral lows, typical 4-core stock cable that you will find similarly on TRN, wishing for more depth on its soundstage.
This IEM is indeed a hidden gem from 2018,a superbly tuned masterpiece for audio enthusiasts out there. A balanced sounding as most online reviewers describe its sound signature,I can say it...

Pros: Great resolution.
Soundstaging Capabilities.
Very good Bass from a BA setup.
Cons: Extremely congealed midrange with a honky and massively off tonality.
Treble is completely spliced off with a similar tonality hit.
Hilariously priced for what it provides.

Pros: Bringing the best of 2 electrostatic+2 BA+10mm Dynamic implementation that brings, cohesion, transparency, imaging and detail to a fun, spacious, technical tuning. Attractive looking solid built all resin filled semi custom ergonomic well isolating shells. Detailed extended treble end with remarkable imagery, Detailed clean clear rich mids with exacting qualities. Detailed full bodied bass end that behaves with quality and control, vented deep reaching rumble with zero roll off. All included on a spacious 3D like sound canvas. Included high quality 8 core SPC and 2 sets of tips you will actually end up using. Solid metal canister to carry your precious.
Cons: Some folks think blue is better looking than the green. Look at my photos people!
Mids emphasis can vary depending on sources and tips. No lip on the nozzle so some tip slippage with ensue. Will have you rethink your expensive earphone purchase you made before getting the Mofasest Trio.

The build on this reminds me of a Legacy 9, same nozzle, same red and blue plastic screen holders for the vents.

Maybe there is some relations there. It isn't uncommon for IEM factories to make another product for another company using same molds and shells. No rule against it. Wild wild west in China as far as manufacturing goes.

Of course, I understand that. I had a QC issue with my Legacy 9 which caused me some grief, so I can be triggered by seeing anything similar in build. Detailed review, very good.
