The sound, as described by HBB himself: The LAVA is a slightly re-tuned EJ07M with an adjustment to the mid-bass. The adjustment, which is slight, gives more energy to drum kits, bass guitar and male vocals while maintaining the upper mids and extension (via the quad EST). This set would be aimed at listeners who like a little more note weight and punch without sacrificing the mids.”
LETSHUOER has collaborated with HBB(Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews), for the latest limited edition of EJ07M, the LETSHUOER X HBB EJ07M Kinda Lava Edition. The pair has a seven-driver tribrid config per side tuned in collaboration with HBB bringing improvements in the mid-bass region by adding heft to the notes and presenting a more natural sound for the listeners!
At first I thought I got my speakers on (speakers are connected to the k5 pro) first time wearing them, due to their psychoacoustic holographic effect it gives everything a 3d feel and that your listening to speakers instead, separation is on another level, everything in the mix is evenly distributed and has their own location and distance and characteristics, you can hear the vocals vocal chord trembles, their change of breath, every pluck of the guitar string strong or light while all of them are playing together, headstage wise It's hard to describe since they give you the psychoacoustic holographic effect but I'd say it's more on like listening to openback HPs but without background noise and smaller notes, imaging wise it's on another level compared to the dusk and teas, you can pinpoint the exact location of the sound and distance ie: listening to classical music gives the instruments their exact location, close your eyes you'll be in the same room vibe
subbass just rumbles the perfect amount (a bit much might result the impressions that you're listening to an iem instead) midbass are super punchy but not overwhelming other frequencies, mids are coherent and shines on this pairs treble wise I think they can add more zing in to 6k region to add more resolution.
All in all I'd say they're 1 level above dusk and teas, wore them for 2 days straight and they make my other pairs sounds congested. Fit are finicky and prone to driver flexes (solved with cp100+ s)
Great iem, nice light shell, super comfortable.
plenty of bass good mids
Better then the timeless 7hz would recommend!
perfect for gaming!
