The Truthear Hexa an okay hybrid

Truthear Hexa
I’ve had the Hexa for about a week and just did my review of it.
It’s not a bad IEM, but it’s far from amazing.
It’s a little thin and I find it a little fatiguing after a while sometimes, unless I EQ it.
I don’t feel it’s very warm, but has some okay details and separation for the price.

Kind of in the same boat. I enjoy the vocal presentation and the sub bass but on some tracks, the lack of lowers mids and upper bass just kind of makes it sound thin. Was there another set that you liked much better? Maybe I’ll return these and get that. If these had a bit more body, they could definitely be very good

Around the same price, try the Fiio JD7. If that neutral type of tuning on Hexa doesn’t work for you, the JD7 should be a better fit.

Kiiboom Allure, I’ve had them a few days, and they’re only a single DD, more detailed and wider sound stage, tonality is near perfect for me. I’ll rec them over the Hexa and the Wan’er any day. And I have all 3.

@Audio_Reviews_Downun @GooberBM seems I’m already on the right page since I picked up the FD5 with it recently, haha

I just tried the Hexa and it was not at all to my liking. Listening to a YouTube video, male voices sounded honky and sibilant, and there was so much treble that it accentuated hiss and background noise. Listening to Freddie Hubbard’s Red Clay, the trumpet sounded muffled.

All the “pro” reviews I’d seen suggested that the Hexa is neutral, natural and generally well tuned, if a little bit boring or dull. I can agree with the boring part, but not the rest.

Well, I need to at least partially eat my words here. I had been trying the Hexa straight from my phone using YouTube Music. On a lark, I tried it on my Tempotec V6 DAP using my FLAC CD rips and it sounds miles better. So I guess this thing is source picky?
