| 13 mm Driver |
? IVERY might not be the most famous brand of earphones but they have a very large catalog with interesting designs, technical specifications and always at super budget prices.
The IVERY IS-32 is ridiculously cheap and offer inside a very large 13 mm dynamic driver. The housings have a sort of hybrid design between an earbud and an iem, so far the IVERY IS-32 share a lot of aspects, design and specs with the Superlux HD381 and those are good news as the Superlux is a very good performer.
The cable is rounded and offer some anti tangling capability with a rubberized finish, the cable has an inline microphone and 1 button control, as you can see on the photographs below there is also a switch, this switch is intended to change from Apple to Nokia compatibility. Overall the cable quality is very basic and can feel fragile.
You can buy the IVERY IS-32 in black or white.

Accessories & Packaging
The IVERY IS-32 come packed inside a plastic box with 2 extra eartips and a cable clip.
Bass & Sub Bass
Bass coming from the huge 13 mm dynamic driver of the IVERY IS-32 is punchy and provides enough depth for most genres; despite the huge dynamic driver and the aforementioned these are not super bassy earphones.
With an EQ they gain noticeably extra punch and most of all a lot of sub-bass depth but things start to become boomy.
Under our extreme bass tests the IVERY IS-32 handled 49% of the maximum power of a Fiio E12 amplifier (high gain, bass boost on) while applying a custom basshead EQ. The results were a very mild rumble and impact, do not expect any basshead impact level coming from them. Also is worthy to say that anything above 40% amplification resulted in distorted sub bass.

Mids & Vocals
Mids of the IVERY IS-32 are very recessed with distant lower vocals; higher mids are not as recessed yet they are rolled off but do not suffer from harshness. Applying an EQ there was a noticeable improvement over the overall recession issues and still higher mids did not sound harsh. Despite the betterment, their lower mids remained having a laid back feel.
Highs & Treble
Highs are not very bright and are able to resolve a small amount of detail, sibilance is present and piercing highs can be perceived at times but not too much. With an EQ there was no improvement in brightness nor detail while some extra piercing highs were introduced and noticeably stronger and more frequent sibilance.
Due to the somewhat hybrid earbud-earphone design the sound that leaks out of the IVERY IS-32 is very high, almost not subdued at all.
Sound isolation performance is noticeably worse than most average earphones, you will require to use high volume levels to allow the IVERY IS-32 to provide an effective level of isolation.
The same design that does not aid with sound leakage issues is able to provide a large but still very comfortable fit, the protruding back section of the housings make grabbing and handling them extremely easy. Not much has to be worried about comfort or pain issues with the IVERY IS-32.
Response to Equalization
The response to custom EQ of the IVERY IS-32 was quite poor, some audio frequencies showed improvement or enhancement, like bass which became punchier and highly deeper but risked to become boomy; mids noticeably changed the very recessed lower mids but still were unable to free from the laid back sensation; highs were the worse here with no improvement at all and just introducing higher levels of sibilance and some extra piercing highs.
