Intro

The YINYOO are structurally identical to the GEEK WORLD GK3. If the tuning is the same as the in-ear I can't judge yet, because I haven't received a perfect GK3 yet, but I'll update the review if this is the case.

Handling

The A8 are very comfortable to wear. Unfortunately, the cables are not removable, which in the price class (15 €) is now part of the good manners (TRN, KZ lead the way) and somewhat stiff.
The workmanship is quite solid and they don't look bad either. Unfortunately, the remote is a bit too high, but the functionality due to the three keys is to be mentioned positively.

Sound

Here I would like to keep a bit shorter, because there is also a lot better in the price segment.

The bass is basically pleasant due to its warm character and depth. But this should not deceive about its weaknesses. The higher basses are not very clean and go well into the midrange. It really booms in a negative sense and tends to overdrive.

The mids are a bit unpleasant because he simply lacks substance. They sound unnatural and hollow. The voices come to the front quite well, but the tonality doesn't fit.

The highs are indeed the best of the A8. They are very relaxed, have a pleasant presence without ever becoming hard or sharp. They ensure that the A8 doesn't drift completely into the dark.
Also details can be seen here, as well as a separation. But that only applies to the heights.
The stage is not bad at all and lies in the good average. However, everything takes place on a horizontal plane.

Outro

I don't want to tear up the A8! I'm not entitled to do that either, because there are certainly some who get along with them and they are certainly better than some mobile phone inserts. Nevertheless, three dynamic drivers seem to have been wasted here. The only in-ears where this worked for me were the I-INTO 8, or the BBOOOLL BO-T1.
These headphones are for those who like bass, don't care much about detail and are height sensitive.
You have to keep in mind that at very low volumes the weaknesses are not too present, but that's not the solution.
It's certainly not my case, especially when compared to the possibilities and the competition (TRN V20, several KZ models, YINYOO PRO etc.).

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.
