The hybrid earphones have great potential for universal listening to different genres of music. Therefore, in this article, I would like to talk about a model called Motsoul X1 in the review.
The earphones are not from the new model, but they are definitely worth your attention since I have not heard quality sound in the price category up to $30 a long time ago.
The model Motsoul X1 received a resistance of 16 ohms, the sensitivity of 95 dB, a removable cable with MMCX connector. Also, a single driver with a size of 9.2 mm and balanced armature were installed in the earphones.
Well, let’s proceed to the analysis of the next hybrid earphones from the company Motsoul.
Motsoul X1: Specifications
|Type:||Dynamic driver + Balanced armature|
|Frequency Response Range:||20-20 000Hz|
|Connections:||3.5mm audio jack|
Motsoul X1: Unboxing
We got a black box, which is very durable to the touch and shows that it is not from poor earphones. Please note that the box opens like a book and has a magnetic mount.
Inside the box, I see on the inside of the box schematic drawings of earphones and cable. Everything is packaged efficiently and securely, even foam protection is present during transport.
The kit includes – this is a cable with MMCX connector, and not as usual with two-contact 0.75 mm. Also one set of three pairs of ear cushions for low frequencies bass and another one with three ear cushions for a detailed and balanced sound.
There is a clothespin for fixing the cable to clothes, a bag for transporting headphones, a VIP card from Motsoul and instructions in English and Chinese.
Again, it’s hard to expect from earphones up to $30 a good package, but Motsoul does everything for people and tries not to save on the buyer.
Motsoul X1: Design and Appearance
Motsoul X1 earphones in our test are compact and light, they sit well in the ears and with prolonged wear does not bring fatigue.
The earphones are made of plastic, so the headphones are light and weigh only 4.5 grams.
On the front, there is a sticker with the name of the company Motsoul and the slogan “Music for the Soul”.
On the back, I see the sound guide and on the base a fabric mesh that protects against dust and dirt.
Just below is one hole.
Sideways in the body in the form of a spout – output for the MMCX connector. Yes, I was surprised by this connector, as it is equipped with more expensive models of headphones.
I did not use a standard cable and took another one from a more expensive model. As practice shows, standard cables spoil the whole picture in sound quality. This also applies to our model Motsoul X1 in the analisis.
Therefore, if you want to listen to a better and more saturated sound, then pay special attention to the cable.
I recommend when ordering to order another additional cable with proven connector MMCX. There are many options, I can recommend a pore, for example, Yinyoo 16 or TRN Copper And Silver Mixed.
In general, the design is well made and I have no comments on the assembly. The quality of materials is made of plastic, so I would like a better material, but considering its price, this is a typical case from many manufacturers.
Motsoul X1: Sound
First of all, the instructions indicate that it is necessary to warm the earphones from 100 to 300 hours at a volume of 60-70% to ensure the best sound quality.
Motsoul X1 earphones from the first seconds are striking in their sound quality. Indeed, budget earphones sound like more expensive headphones from which it is difficult to break away.
I listened to this model for a long time for the entire week and during my testing, I found out that the earphones are suitable for all types of genres. This is not surprising, as hybrid earphones provide the possibility of universal sound.
Disadvantages, of course, are present, but compared to the merits, they are very minor.
Low frequencies are well built and highlighted in Motsoul X1. The company paid great attention to low frequencies, so the sound texture is well defined and has a surround and decent sound.
The bass has a good and elastic depth, pay attention to the selected ear cushions from the kit. Also, the bass has a moderate sound and does not go beyond discomfort.
The mids are also well represented, even if you look at the graph, which shows a slight drop, but is not felt when listening to music.
Male and female vocals sound very nice and detailed. All the features of the performers’ voices can be heard with good detail and you feel the closeness of the voice next to you.
All musical instruments sound realistic and natural. If you listen to a bass guitar or any other instrument, then it stands out well and has good speed and dynamics.
The high frequencies in Motsoul X1 are very surprising – especially with good detail and correct attenuation. But there are moments where the high frequencies roll over and the sound is sandy. This happens rarely and in most cases, the high ones are very worthy.
If you compare Motsoul X1 with models of KZ or CCA in its price category, then the latter is far behind in almost all aspects. Even the model KZ ZS10 Pro will not be able to compete since the Motsoul X1 has a bass sound and good detail.
Motsoul X1: Conclusions and Reviews
Given that the earphones are already sold for more than one year, but the Motsoul X1 deserves attention.
The sound quality in all ranges of sound attracts to its attention with its richness, detail, and correct sound.
The bass is well tuned, which express a certain depth and warmth, so listening to the Motsoul X1 brings great pleasure.
For its price, Motsoul X1 offers good sound quality and an attractive appearance that is comfortable to wear even for a long time.
Motsoul X1: Price and where to buy cheaper?
Now you can buy Motsoul X1 earphones at a low price of $28.32 with a 27% discount. It is also possible to buy a wireless cable in the kit, which allows listening to headphones through the neck. This is convenient during training, such as running. But the price is already $43.65.
In general, the Motsoul X1 earphones definitely brought me positive emotions, considering their price, they absolutely have no competitors in sound quality.
