It is extremely rare to find an in ear monitor that sounds great under 500 pesos. At 399 Pesos this Kitsound Mini Earphones is surprisingly one of them. It has good build quality, great comfort, decent isolation and has a microphone for calls at a very low price tag.

- Frequency responce: 20 Hz - 20 Hz
- Sensitivity: 100 DB
- InLine Mic
- Flat Cable
- Gold Plated 3.5 mm Straight Jack
|3 sizes of silicon eartips|
Accessory-wise there's not much found in the package which is understandable for the price. At least you get 3 sizes of eartips to fit you best.
|I love that low profile glossy finish to keep things simple and neat|
|Gold plated 3.5 mm jack for better sound|
|The easy to distinguish left and right marking|
|The Y Splitter (It didn't have a cable cinch for cable management though)|
When it comes to the build quality department, the Kitsound Mini Earphones were nicely done even at this very low price. The glossy plastic used in its body feels quite durable, the strain reliefs feels fine too, the flat cables were surprisingly thick and has great flexibility and you get a gold plated 3.5 mm jack too.
Comfort / Isolation / Microphonics
|It's a comfy set, the silicon tips has good quality too|
When it comes to comfort, the Kitsound Mini Earphones is a very comfortable set on a shallow fit. It reminded me of the comfort I've had with the VSonic GR99 way back in 2012. The IEM also block the noise quite decently, but not as much as some deeply inserted earphones. However, the microphonics (cable noise) is pretty much present when worn straight down which could be remedied by wearing it over ear.
If you're a fan of bass heavy tracks, then this in ear monitor might be for you. This Kitsound Mini has a warm sound signature, the lows have great quantity especially on the sub bass part. It may sound a little bloated at some tracks, but it has great extension on that part of the sound. The mids were just fine on some acoustic tracks with minimal bass and you can hear the voices surprisingly clear, but the bass is overpowering with bass heavy tracks. To my delight the highs is there and provided some decent sparkle and sweet tunes on electric guitars. The soundstage is a bit narrow but has enough air to hear where the sound is coming from. Then the separation is surprisingly there too as I can distinguish the instruments even on tracks likes Appetite for democracy by Guns an Roses.
Overall, though I'm not a fan of too bassy sounding in ear monitors. I'm surprised to the type of sound this set can deliver. I must say that this in ear monitors punches a tad or two above its price range.
Lossless Tracks Used:
1. Appetite For Democracy - Guns and Roses Live!
2. Hey Brother - Avicii
3. Royals - Lorde
4. Razor - Franco
5. Angel - Anita Baker
Pro's - huge bass quantity, surprising separation, decent overall sound, good comfort, great value for money
Con's - hiss on some tracks, overpowering bass on bassy tracks, microphonics when worn straight down
If you're looking for a decent throw around on the in ear monitor buddy with low profile minimalist design that doesn't break the bank. This one is for you! The build quality feels good, it's tangle free and has a good microphone for calls. It has decent sound quality and amazing bass quantity that most of the bass loving public will surely love.
