BQEYZ KC2: Unboxing, Build Quality, Cable
KC2 comes with tiny black box with some informations on it. On side there’s a sticker that indicates the model.
KC2 doesn’t come with much accesories, In the box there are BQEYZ KC2 itself, cable, 3 pairs of silicone tips and some paperwork.
Cable looks simple; it’s TPE insulated, 2 core braided, L shaped 3.5mm plug and stress relief that moderately stif. Cable joint covered in black aluminum, “BQEYZ” written on it. Underneath that there’s stress relief and silicone cable slider.
Nearly analogue! Hi-Fiers are familiar with this stereotypic word. I’ve rarely encountered digitalism in this headphone. It’s quite balanced and airy. Staging is good for an iem with pinhole sized vent especially compared to open back headphones. It’s really impressive in live recordings. This is really unexpected performance for this price point.
Bass, Mid, Treble
Bass quantity isn’t that much. It directly gives the right amount of bass quantity in mix. It’s just like life, neither less or more. I’ve mentioned that KC2 sounds organic before: Therefore bass doesn’t penetrates but in dubstep-like genres you hear the not-so light drums even if they are digital. But in bass drops it doesn’t shakes that much. KC2 isn’t suitable for these genres.
Mid is exceptionally satisfying. Vocals clear and sounds lively, when you close your eyes it’s easy to determine the instrumet locations. It’s unexpected in this price point. I didn’t get any sibilance issues, however it’s not relaxed in treble range but i bet you’ll like the sound of it. Treble doesn’t exhausts, while its performance is clear and little tough. BQEYZ KC2 sounds neutral-bright and even in some tracks you can determine the difference between hi-hats and cymballs.
BQEYZ KC2: Conclusion
Regarding it’s price; if you get bored of warm sounding CCA and KZ headphones, if you are looking for a new taste and if you are into genres like jazz, blues, symphonic, rock, ethnic, classical, acapella etc… just get this headphone. In the other hand if you are listening to bassy and midi-made tracks go for KZs or check out Simgot EN700 Pro also check out KBear Starsea, Tin T2+, Ikko OH1/OH10. If your budget is higher than these just get Sennheiser IE800s. KC2 isn’t the flattest but with it’s analogue and organic sound is one of the makes KC2 remarkable headphone.
