GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 – Review

GeekRover iEPW060 iEPW061


 GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061

| 10 mm Driver | Neodymium Magnet |


 


ūüéß This time we are reviewing the GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061, a wooden earphone with a 10mm dynamic driver and a neodymium magnet. We have already reviewed the GeekRover iEPW020 / iEPW021 which proved to be an outstanding earphone for a ridiculously low price and which has earned a secure place in our Best Bang for Buck Earphones Chart. As the model name suggests, the GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 should be a higher model than the GeekRover iEPW020 / iEPW021, price wise they are still incredibly cheap. The housings of the GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 are made of real RoseWood with a metal back plate and a plastic front section. The cable is rounded and rubberized to prevent tangling issues (the cable is almost the same as the one found on the¬†GeekRover iEPW020 / iEPW021), inline a microphone and 1-button control is found. Although we already listed their main features, due to the insane low price, it is worthy to rename it again. For the price you will get a real RoseWood earphone with a farily large 10mm dynamic driver and a strong N48 neodymium magnet. The main difference with the¬†GeekRover iEPW020 / iEPW021¬†is the type of wood used, being the 020/021 made of Cherry Wood. You can buy the GeekRover in 2 option: with black colored plastics or white colored. The model name GeekRover iEPW060 corresponds to the white plastics version while the GeekRover iEPW061 is the black plastic version.

B

Bass & Sub Bass

The GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 bass is remarkably punchy and deep. Compared to the¬†GeekRover iEPW020 / iEPW021, the iEPW060/061 have a stronger bass response. Fun and energetic bass is something that the¬†GeekRover iEPW060/iEPW061 certainly do not lack. With an EQ, their mid-bass gets noticeably punchier and extremely deep. Under our extreme bass tests, the GeekRover iEPW060/iEPW061 were able to handle a massive quantity of amplification power reaching up to 57% of a Fiio E12‘s maximum power (high gain, bass boost on and custom basshead EQ). The test resulted in an outstanding and exponential increase of mid-bass punch and sub-bass depth entering basshead territory with rumble and impact similar to the Monoprice 8320, Vots QT100 and way more than the KZ ATE, URBANFUN HiFi and Xiaomi Mi Pro HD.

Mids & Vocals

Mids of the GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 have a slight degree of recession but sound warm and not muffled (if you are ok with their strong mid-bass bleeding), higher mids are never harsh. Warm and smooth describes pretty well their overall mids. An EQ removes some recession on lower mids and higher mids still remain under control without falling into harshness.

H

Highs & Treble

The GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 have recessed highs with a dark signature that lacks brightness and detail but on the positive side they do not sound sibilant nor piercing. The highs of the iEPW060/061 are a dark and non piercing version of the GeekRover iEPW020 / iEPW021. After an EQ, highs gain a lot of brightness and a tiny amount of detail. Piercing highs remain under control while sibilance shows up a bit at times.

Sound Leak

Exactly like what happened with the iEPW020, the sound that leaks out of the GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 is slightly worse than average but not terrible. The metallic back plate of them has kind of an open back design, which is not ideal for sound leaking. The Elephone E1 is another iem with similar style of open back design.

SI

Sound Isolation

Sound isolation is quite good, noticeably better than most average earphones with a capacity of blocking noises without having to use high volume levels.

C

Comfort

With real RoseWood housings the GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 have a pleasant feel and nice finish. Overall they are very light weight and opting for a bullet style housing form factor they are easy to put in and out. The design, construction and materials result in a very comfortable fit well adapted for prolonged listening sessions without any discomfort.

EQ

Response to Equalization

The GeekRover iEPW060 / iEPW061 have a fairly good response to custom equalization; bass shows immediate empowering of punch and depth, highs gain substantial brightness with no serious issues while mids did not show a great difference nor improvement.
