Intro

With the RX8, REVONEXT opens a new product line that will compete with the models for 20 €. They can not only keep up with the numerous models in this range, but also leave behind their fragrance brand. Only the Sibilants make the RX8 a little bit uncomfortable.

Handling

REVONEXT takes a step back with the RX8 and would also like to place a product that plays in a lower price range than the QT2/QT3.
To make this possible, plastic is used and drivers are saved.

In terms of comfort, the RX8 is not outdone by many, making it suitable not only for everyday use, but also for sports. They are lightweight, compact and have an ergonomic design.
The cables have a pleasant rubber coating, but no earhook.
They are supplied in the same colour as the in-ear colour.

The isolation is average and cable noise is virtually absent.

Sound

The RX8 tries to do justice to many, but shortly before its destination it runs out of breath.

Compared to the QT2/QT3, the bass isn't as prominent anymore. This may be mainly due to the fact that not two but only one driver provides the foundation. This means it doesn't have as much taste and depth anymore. But it acts very precisely and stays where it belongs. If you play something with the attachments (silicone/foam) you can still get one or the other dB out, but also from home it is pleasantly punchy and present.

Because the bass is not so much in the foreground anymore, it gives the mids a little more freedom, which they know how to use. In general these are quite identical to those of the QT2. Very clear, detailed and dynamic, without straining the ears, but a bit more analytical in comparison.

Unfortunately, the RX8 takes over a bit with the treble, so there are some limitations. The sibilants are emphasized too much from time to time, especially with female voices. That's not quite as dramatic as with the QT3 or ZS6, but it's exhausting over time when you're very sensitive. Nevertheless, the highs are very detailed and we have an extraordinarily large stage, which is not lacking in depth either.

Basically the RX8 reminds a bit of the TRN V20 (1*DD & 1*BA), but the highs are not so smooth (V20), but much more prominent and brighter.

Outro

The REVONEXT RX8 are solid as a rock. If you take the middle heights back a little to reduce the sibilant emphasis, they are even top in their class, this can be achieved with an equalizer, but also with foamtips.
In this league many other very good models from other companies play as well, like TRN V20, MAGAOSI HLSX-808, KZ ZST Pro|ZSA|ED16, BLITZWOLF BW-VOX1, YINYOO PRO, or the URBANFUN HI-FI etc. so that in the end it's up to you to decide which in-ears are your personal favorite. The RX8 count at least into this circle.

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.
