Intro

The PHM2 is a hybrid in-ear with a V-signature. It impresses with a light, warm sound, metal finish and comfortable fit. Acoustic music suits it particularly well.

Handling

The headphones are made of light metal and sit really comfortable in the ear.
Due to their large opening on the back, the noise insulation to the outside is not very good if you exaggerate the volume a bit. On the other hand, it is good on the inside even at moderate volume levels. It is only available without a remote cable, which limits its functionality in everyday life.
The in-ears come with a practical storage case and various silicone attachments.

Sound

The PMH2 sound very warm with an emphasis on bass and treble. However, the low bass drops off quite quickly and is not the lowest either. The bass can become a bit spongy from time to time if it is used too much.

The mids are slightly reduced but have a nice transparency and adequate clarity. They are a bit more pronounced in the lower mids than in the trebles, so that especially male voices are well supported. However, sometimes it can get a little booming downstairs. But this also depends strongly on the source.

The highs are not as exciting as those of the KZ ZS10 or the REVONEXT QT2, but they are very relaxed and suitable for very long listening sessions. They deliver an average level of detail

The stage is quite wide, but could be a bit deeper. In addition, the separation decreases when the music becomes more complex.

Outro

In summary, it can be said that the PHM2 can handle any music genre and, above all, remain audible over a long period of time. They are quite musical and can also give electronic music the necessary impact, but feel very comfortable especially with unexcited music.

Legend

Haptic:

Here the processing plays a role and the usability of the scope of supply. Additionally the appearance, wearing comfort and robustness.


Value:
Here I evaluate for me subjectively the price/performance ratio - does not flow into the evaluation!

Z: No Brainer

A: money well spent

B: all right, you can do

C: gives better for less money

D: overpriced

E: collector's price

Daily life:
Here, I focus on the long-term audibility and whether I can hear it well out of the box. This is of course very subjective and therefore only a minimal deduction or bonus.
