Excellent single dynamic driver in this thing. Warm and impactful bass. The treble and extended upper frequencies sound natural. Not too hectic or too pushed but enough to give a pleasing amount of clarity and detail. The set as a whole has excellent separation and good sized stage. But the mids and vocal range are what sets the Oriolus apart. Vocals feel real. Perfectly positioned as if you were standing an arms length from the singer and has a natural physicality that is rare for an IEM. They’re more versatile than a mere vocal specialist. The bass which gives warmth to vocals has got more than enough weight to handle EDM. But the vocals are the star here. Excellent, but… the price. These are expensive. But if you prioritise vocal presentation then there’s not much better.
The sound balance is exquisite, and I never get tired of listening to it.
I searched the internet, saw the great Isabellae reviews, bought them and it they did not disappoint. It's all about enjoying music and the level of enjoyment is on par with iem's twice the price. Acoustic, indie, folk, rock, blues, vocals all sound great. Plenty of low end and they take bass boost well if you want it. The rght tips are important, wide bore and taller Spinfit CP155's work very well.
Yes, it is very pricy for only having a single driver. Very organic bass and mids, with enough sub-bass for me, but probably not for a dyed-in-the-wool basshead. They are gorgeous! Just wish for a bit more top end for my personal tastes. Very wide sound field.
Even at $600, they are very competitive.
Not bad. They tuned it pretty suitable for pop and R&B male voices
