Bass & Sub Bass

The House of Marley Mystic has clear bass without any traces of boomy or overdone lower end. To nowadays bassy-styled earphone’s tendency The House of Marley Mystic may sound lacking punch and depth but really they are just less bass-centered with a much more balanced sound signature. For non super bass intensive genres The House of Marley Mystic will deliver enough bass to fulfill any track’s requirements without getting invasive.

An EQ feeds up a bit their punch and depth but, if you crank up too much the EQ, bass will start to become a sort of muted space.

During our extreme basshead tests The House of Marley Mystic handled up to 42% of the maximum power coming from a Fiio E12 Mont Blanc (high gain, basshead eq, bass boost on). The results of these tests made The House of Marley Mystic gain a total makeover of their bass style with an exponential increase of mid-bass punch and sub-bass depth. Despite the results, do not expect any basshead rumble or impact from them.

Mids & Vocals

The House of Marley Mystic have mids that sound warm and clear enough. Lower mids and lower vocals do not suffer from mid-bass bleed nor sound distant, higher mids are not recessed and sound just right without getting fatiguing or harsh.

Applying an EQ, lower vocals get a bit boxy if bumped up too much but to be honest their lower vocals and lower mids do not need an EQ, they are just fine out-of-the-box.



Highs & Treble

The House of Marley Mystic highs are not too dark neither extremely bright, still they have some brightness and a slight degree of detail is resolved. Piercing and sibilant highs are not present at any moment.

Using an EQ, highs get much brighter and some extra detail is resolved. No sibilant or piercing highs are introduced.

Sound Leak

The sound that leaks out of The House of Marley Mystic is, very noticeably, lower than on most average earphones and will be rarely heard by anybody near you even at max volume (during normally noisy situations)

Sound Isolation

The sound isolation provided by the Mystic is fairly efficient with a clear subdued perception of surrounding noises. If you set a high volume the sound isolation will be strong.

The fairly small size, light overall weight and classic form factor makes The House of Marley Mystic a very comfortable earphone to wear with no risks of in-ear pain. At the same time, their fit is secure and tight enough to withstand any daily activities without dropping off.

Response to Equalization

The response to EQ was fair in some frequencies and not so great on many others. Bass showed just a tiny bit of added punch and depth; mids got boxy and harsh (but they do not need any EQ help for their mids); highs were the most responsive with a great amount of extra brightness and remaining free of piercing and sibilant highs.
