? With our Tennmak Porcelain review we are testing out and looking at a mid-range model of the Asian company specialized in manufacturing earphones and in-ear monitor.
TENNMAK might not have been on the market for as long as some big names like JBL, Sony, Sennheiser, Pioneer, JVC, Panasonic or Philips but still they have been able to build up a quite good reputation among budget earphone lovers.
The TENNMAK Porcelain has housings made of porcelain (as the name suggests) which feel very robust with a substantial weight that is still not excessive nor fatiguing. Overall, the design looks very clean and polished with a minimalist aesthetics style.
The cable is flat and strongly built; there is an inline microphone and 1-button control which is made of plastic and allows to play/pause music, skip songs and answer/reject calls. The 3.5mm stereo plug section is also made of plastic. In case that you were wondering about the color options, do not worry pink is not the only color available.

Accessories & Packaging
The Tennmak Porcelain used to include the accessories that you see on the photo below (2 eartips and a tin box/case) but it’s accessories has been updated and now comes with a hard carrying case and a hard box packaging with 3 pair of eartips (the same that is shipped with the Tennmak Dulcimer, for example). Despite the fact that we got the older packaging and accessories version, the score that you see below represents the current updated accessories and packaging.
Bass & Sub Bass
The bass of the Tennmak Porcelain has strong punch and is very deep right out of the box, at times where very bassy songs are listened things could get a bit boomy for some listeners but people that welcomes rich and energetic bass will be satisfied.
With an EQ there is a huge increase in mid-bass punch and sub-bass depth.
The Tennmak Porcelain were able to handle 47% of the maximum power of a Fiio E12 Mont Blanc amplifier while being set to high gain and with bass boost turned on; a custom basshead EQ was used. This extreme amplification and equalization made the Tennmak Porcelain achieve a highly punchy and much deeper bass response but a bit distorted, still they were not able to reach any basshead level impact and rumble remaining way below the KZ ATE, Xiaomi Mi Pro HD or the SOUL K-POP and nowehere near the Monoprice 8320, Vots QT100 or the Elecom EHP-CA3580, Xiaomi Mi In-Ear Headphones Pro, Blitzwolf BW-ES1.

Mids & Vocals
Mids of the Tennmak Porcelain show some mid-bass bleeding into them making lower mids a bit congested at times but lower vocals still fight back and do not sound too distant. Higher mids are somewhat rolled off but are not as recessed as lower mids and do not get harsh at any time. Overall, mids sound very warm. An EQ reduces mid-bass bleed boosting up the lower mids. Higher mids sound much crispier and energetic resulting in a drastic improvement, still without introducing any boxy or harsh mids.
Highs & Treble
The Tennmak Porcelain has highs with a dark personality and a tiny bit of detail. Overall they are recessed, not piercing at all nor sibilant. Applying an EQ, some extra detail is resolved but no drastic enhancement in brightness is added. Regarding piercing and sibilant highs, they still remain free of them and under control.
The sound that leaks out of these porcelain earphones is clearly below most average earphones, using low and moderate volume the sound leaking out will not be heard in normally noisy situations.
Noise isolation is quite good, better than most average earphones in a slighty perceivable level. Moderate levels of volume can be set and the Tennmak Porcelain will still provide a good amount of isolation.
With their small sized housings and gratifying porcelain materials they offer great comfort and fit. Under normal city usage they will not fall off the ears.
Response to Equalization
The TENNMAK Porcelain showed an excellent response to most custom EQ that we applied with clear improvement and minor issues introduced. Bass became clearly punchier and deeper; mids remarkably improved with clear sounding vocals and crispier higher mids without added problems; highs became a bit more detailed while not adding up any sibilant or piercing sounds.
