Intro

First of all I would like to thank HEADTEK.de for this demo. HEADTEK now has exclusive rights for the distribution of ORIVETI products in Germany and this cooperation is a win-win situation for both parties, because the still young company (ORIVETI) is hitting the ground running with its latest products. The OH300 convinces with design, wearing comfort and an audiophile, fun-orientated focus and meets exactly my taste!

Handling

Right at the start, the OH300 manages to impress. Numerous accessories, such as various sizes of form and silicone tips, a round and high-quality leather transport box and a premium cable with 8 cores, let you suspect what could be behind the OH300 already when unpacking. Admittedly, I also expect a decent total package for the price and I wasn't disappointed in this case.

It goes on with the wearing comfort, which can also be convincing with the right choice of tips. Outside noise is greatly minimized and the environment is also largely spared.
You always have a safe wearing feeling, which plays an important role especially on stage.

ORIVETI's design hasn't been very tricky, but what counts here is the extraordinary fit and ergonomics. In addition, some simplicity and modesty are also welcome. Recently I've noticed more and more that the trend is more towards seeing and being seen in terms of design concepts. This applies especially to the cheaper Chi-Fi products.

Sound

The OH300 has a sound signature based on neutrality, but with more bass, which meets my taste right away and makes the OH300 a very pleasant, warm-tending representative.

The bass has everything I need to meet my expectations. The bass is also very pleasant to play down to the deepest regions, which makes the bass noticeable, as well as a pleasant midrange and high range punch, without drumming or unnecessarily overshadowing the midrange.
For some the bass may be a bit too rich, but I like it very much within the overall tuning of the OH300. It can also finely resolve fine bass passages and reproduce them tonal correct and true to detail. But it could be even more precise and harder in attack.

The mids are best for me with the OH300. These sound extremely natural, which applies equally to voices and instruments. But what stands out here is the ingenious separation and the positioning on different levels in the room. Voices are a bit more in the focus and are placed slightly in the foreground. This direct response I prefer much more than when they get lost in space. The rest is arranged perfectly all around and everything is easy to locate without any restrictions, as sounds hardly ever overlap and thus create a great transparency.

The highs are really strongly dependent on the music material. They have an excellent resolution and a very good extension. But that makes them very susceptible to poorer recordings, where cymbals tend to clink or become artefacts. However, this problem also occurs with many other high-end models that have this resolution, so you shouldn't blame them for this. You should only know from the beginning what you are feeding the OH300 with in order to achieve an optimal listening experience. The level of detail and 3D feel are also at an extraordinary level. Sibilants occur very rarely, if at all, and audibility for hours is 100% guaranteed. Unpleasant peaks are also an absolute rarity.

I have more or less already dealt with the stage and separation, but I would like to say again that the OH300 is really a premium product in this area and does justice to its price tag, but also has to. In addition, the OH300 is also fully suitable for stage use due to its transparency, expansion, attention to detail and natural sound reproduction.

Outro

For me the OH300 is quite expensive, but once invested a very durable and faithful companion in everyday life, as well as on stage! The sound is a mixture of fun, with the potent but clean bass and neutral, with the coherent midrange and treble with its natural sound reproduction and expansion. The workmanship and accessories are as convincing as the sound characteristics.

Is it worth more than 300€? This is certainly in the eye of the beholder and the overall package, but the OH300 convinced me already after the first notes, similar to the Kanas Pro. Here I see a slight advantage for the OH300 as far as the separation of the midrange, the extension of the treble and the more powerful midbass are concerned, which is of course a matter of taste. The tuning of the drivers is also very harmonious and creates a very good symbiosis, without letting them compete against each other, as is sometimes the case with cheaper CHI-FI hybrids. Nevertheless, I appreciate the dynamics, sub-range and lightness of the KANAS Pro more.
I can't think of anything special about the OH300 that speaks against buying it if you're looking for a fun, audiophile in-ear for everyday use, but also for stage use. It is able to meet the most different demands on music without any problems. An in-ear for all situations, Thumbs Up!

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.
