Clarity Redefined ONKYO E700M
Top-notch Hi-Res audio performance.
Today, many are willing to spend a little more on audio products that are able to provide good audio quality. One such product is the Onkyo E700M.
DESIGN AND USAGE
The E700M is a pair of in-ear earphones that supports Hi-Res audio. It comes with a unique-looking cable that makes it highly recognisable, even from a distance. Its housing is made out of aluminium, which minimizes unwanted vibrations, while giving it a sleek look. There’s also an in-line remote and microphone, to allow you to play and pause music easily, as well as answer calls without fumbling around for your phone. Bundled with the E700M are three pairs of differently-sized silicone caps, and one pair of Comply foam tips, making it comfortable to wear for almost anyone.
Featuring a semi-closed acoustic architecture, the E700M does leak a little, but it’s not loud enough to be a nuisance in a quiet environment. The 13.5mm drivers have been tuned very well, and they offer very good overall performance.
We tested the E700M with some FLAC files, namely The Eagles’ Hotel California, and Miles Davis’ Someday My Prince Will Come. In Hotel California, the mids and highs were highly accurate, and the presence was incredible. Bass was slightly overwhelming, but this was easily overcome in the equaliser settings. As for Someday My Prince Will Come, the sound staging was excellent and the instruments, including those in the background, were clearly audible.
The Onkyo E700M is not only fashionable, but offers plenty of audio performance as well. They sound great with all sort of music, though they excel with acoustic and vocals. The bass can be overwhelming, but if you have access to an equaliser, this won’t be an issue.
