Intro

REVONEXT is a newcomer to the Chi-Fi market and directly sets an exclamation mark with the QT2. Originally apparently from the USA/Sweden, they have now found another location in Hong Kong.

The QT2 are the first in-ears of the company available at AliExpress, but there are more three and four driver in-ears on their website, for example the QT3 as direct successor.
But now to the QT2: Beautiful metal in-ears with excellent sound and detachable cables. Chi-Fi heart, what more could you ask for?

Handling

Externally the QT2 resembles the KZ ZS6 very much, which was again already a copy of the Campfire. Nevertheless, clear differences can be found, so that it does not remain with a 1 to 1 copy. They are smaller and have more curves.
This makes them even more pleasant to wear for my taste. The detachable 2-pin cables also provide a long durability and customization options, through a silver cable, or Bluetooth module, which are offered e.g. by KZ or TRN.

The carry and fit is also suitable for listening on the couch as well as during sports, without pressing or falling out.

Sound

The sound, however, is the figurehead of these in-ears. This is so far from the tuning and dynamics of the individual frequency ranges some of the best I've heard (price category).
There's really no music where the QT2 can't do what's required.
The trebles are beautifully detailed, clear and always bring out something new from the music that was believed to be familiar until now. They are not a headache factor in longer listening sessions, but always on point. Here and there the sibilants emerge, but that is negligible.

The mids are really an excellent one. Natural, forward and just as detailed. The surround feeling is enormous and you always have the possibility to locate everything you hear because the instruments and voices are perfectly positioned in the room. That's the way the mids have to sound to my taste!

The basses are above all one thing: Strong! Very clear, deep and crisp, they can demolish the ears in a positive sense, depending on the requirements, or they can also discreetly withdraw. Because two drivers are used, it is always well separated and perfectly controlled.

All in all: The sound is damn uncompromising and damn good!

Outro

The REVONEXT QT2 are at the top of my collection with their setup, workmanship, comfort and sound and will probably enjoy my favor for quite a while. I am looking forward to the other models of the company, because with their debut album they have hit the bull's eye. Hats off!

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.
