Experience the ultimate audio performance with the AFUL Acoustics Performer 5. This IEM is equipped with the combination of a 5 hybrid-driver configuration and the latest patented technologies.
Feel the Music
Enjoy the power of 5 with the AFUL Acoustics Performer 5. It is fitted with a single custom dynamic driver that offers powerful bass while the four balanced armature drivers deliver a clear mid-range and accurate treble.
Always at the Right Frequency
The in-house developed RLC Network Frequency Division Technology allows for accurate frequency division among each of the drivers. It also corrects the non-ideal frequency response for certain frequency bands for a smooth sound without any irregularities or peaks.
No Pressure, Just Clear Sound
A high-damping air-pressure balance system releases the air pressure inside the ear canal for a comfortable listening experience. It also improves the texture of the bass. The ergonomically-designed housing further improves comfort and fit.
3D Printed for Spectacular Sound
The EnvisionTEC High-Precision 3D Printed Acoustic Tube Structure features a 60mm ultra-long and ultra-thin bass tube with a 30mm mid-bass duct structure. This maintains proper phase correction between different frequencies while delivering a spectacular bass response.
This iem is unmatched under 300 dollar. Value for money.
First of all, I would like to thank the Audio Store team for the expedited delivery and for the thoughtful gesture of sending some coffee sachets.
Coming to the IEM, I have previously owned Dioko Salnotes, Tin HiFi T3 Plus, Venture Electronics Bonus and QKZ x HBB.
I am very new to the audiophile scene and I will say that I am just dipping my toes in this newfound hobby.
I think until I heard the AFUL P5 I wasn't even aware what a 'wide soundstage, resolution, bass thump meant. These IEMs are miles ahead in every aspect. The instrument separation is on another level and the same songs have so much more detail. I can hear little notes of bass in the numbers which i never heard before.
Thank you again to the audio store team for making these available in India. I would like to request another IEM which is FiiO x Crinacle FHE: Eclipse and 0.78MM female to MMCX male connectors from AS.
P.S. - I like sound signatures which are bass-heavy and neutral mids and treble.
This review is based on my acquired sonic taste and could be biased. Please take it with a pinch of salt.
This smooth hybrid is for wine drinkers. It is not neutral by any stretch of imagination with a very clear emphasis on lower frequencies that is very vibrant and colored.
5 stars across all the departments for this hybrid. Build, comfort and ergonomics top notch, packaging and accessories with a minimalist no nonsense approach. One of the best cables you can find (out of the box for any iem within the 300$ mark.)
1.Stellar subbass and bass extension.
2.Excellent imaging and 3D sound (This is that kinda iem where you can hear sound coming behind your head)!
3.Smooth midrange, with good layering, texture & lush sounding.
4.A mature, well controlled refined treble (based on my taste for music) with absolute no pinna glare and yet smooth and crisp is a rarity in higher price brackets that you get with this iem.
5.The best pinna gain for me (not too much nor too little), zero fatigue listening for long hours guaranteed.
Some of the better tuned treble you can find in this price bracket. Lots of treble extension and the upper treble just enough to provide the required space and air between the instruments
6. Very easy to drive and does not require a load of power to bring out all the dynamism & magic it stores within.
7. Some breath taking crossover technology that makes the whole sonic experience very cohesive with natural tonality & timbre.
1. Mid bass can be a tad bit more tight (for my taste).
2. Hint of BA timbre (especially in the treble region, for my taste)
Overall a much technically superior & iem compared to the others, that guarantees smooth fatigueless listening for long hours.
Ear Tips used - I use the kBear 07 tips (which i feel opens the sound up tad better than the default)
I have been listening to these for the last 5 to 6 days. These have been growing on me day by day. Paired with Tempotec V6 and Spinfit W1. Phenomenal subwoofer-like bass response, great mids and treble performance, wide soundstage and accurate 3d imaging, superb layering, non-fatiguing, and great cohesion between the drivers...All in all, it is like an Endgame IEM for me. Passive noise cancellation is top-notch due to the ergonomic fit. My prior IEM was S12, which is already technically fantastic. P5 is a very good upgrade from S12. They both complement each other really well. Also, it scaled very well with an upgrade cable, Kinera Leyding. A must-buy ENDGAME level IEM at a low cost.

Recently launched ie 200 from sennheiser is a pure sounding delight. It lives up to its reputation, that being said it’s a king in its segment, The sound signature is balanced & non fatiguing, The fit & seal is perfect,
I feel lucky having purchased this .
Sennheiser had done a wonderful job in tuning the sound.
It performs well & even outclasses some higher priced iems,
Thanks to the audio store for quick shipping & prompt service
Definitely recommended 👍
What to say about this earphone I think it is one of the highly recommended earphones for its price and performance. Soundstage is best I have heard.
Bass and Treble are at par excellence while listening to music.
Comparison with IE300 or IE600 is not fair as these tuned differently so my take is that IE200 is worth purchase if any want to put it on.
Conclusion: My writing above is based on after eartips I changed with AZLA black Large according to my fit. But what I found with original tips one has to fight to get a proper fit. Not so good with original eartips. But it does not mean that IE200 is bad, it is worth as above said. Try aftermarket eartips and also try IE200 with balanced output with adapters like 4.4 mm to 3.5 mm available in The Audio Store, one will get enjoyable sound with the adapters.
cp145 eartips are soft and comfortable . No more ear fatigue when used for prolong time with these eartips. Enhancement of bass is clearly noticeable .
Sennheiser IE 200
This is my review of IE 200 Already listened to all IE Series IEMs 300 & 600 at the audio store. Personally, I owned IE 900 for my regular music sessions.
IE 200 is the perfect gem IEM for the price bracket of 150$ and even more in my viewpoint let's discuss it.
Comfort: IE 200 comfort level is the same as all IE Series high end of 300,600 & 900. Thanks to the R&D Team of Sennheiser for making the IE series more comfortable than ever given by other IEMs.
Accessories Quality: The packing was fantastic as all IE Series have and felt WoW! after seeing upgradeable cable with tangle free better than all cables of IE Series. There were all forms of ear tips with great quality as the usual stuff.
The most upgrade thing found in the overall box is the Cable wire. Top-notch quality for the given price bracket.
The most impressive part of IE 200 is the separation of left and right channels. Any track you play is going to divide the instrumental separation on top-notch. Never listened to any IEMs in this price bracket that had that level of separation.
The sound stage: was enough for this IE 200 to drive that enjoyable wide sound keeping the price in mind. All IE series Vocals will be perfect and the same IE 200 also had the same in delivering.
BASS: Fantastic! Mindblowing! Extraordinary Dont know what word needs to use. It's pure, Instant, and, loveable. Really can't express it in words but truly love the bass in IE 200. Become a fan of this bass.
Treble: As I know many IEMs will have issues with treble but Sennheiser has done a great job here too. It's on the spot not going up and down but perfect.
Conclusion: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! Blindly open your wallet for IE 200 this is not going to make your expectations down. it's full meals you have everything to taste. It's very hard for any company to deliver everything in one IEM for a small price. Kudos to Sennheiser and the team for coming up with IE 200 Series.
It's actually a risk for any company to launch an IEM to have all flavors at one price because other line series will get affected but here it was very clear Senhisher wants to deliver top-graded sound for all consumers to enjoy Audiophile sound at a small cost.
They achieved what they expected their consumers to feel on the sound side and quality side.
Comparison with IE 200 VS IE 600:
IE 200 is perfect but when you compare it with IE 600 there will be obvious little changes the price of both IEMs needs to keep in mind.
Vocals are a little backward compared with IE 600.
Treble is fantastic at IE 200 compare with IE 600.
Bass is awesome at IE 200 compared with IE 600. The soundstage is better in IE 600 than in IE 200.
Separation part little high at IE 600 but mostly you won't get feel much difference. Until you feel like comparing.
My personal recommendation is to pick IE 200 and if any thoughts to upgrade in the IE series in near future directly jump for IE 900 series. Then only you feel like perfect upgraded sound in all aspects too.
It is comfortable
Perfect for beginners who don't have headphones jacks in their phone. I've been using it with my CCA CRA's and it's going great. Noticed a significant improvement in quality when compared to the generic dac that I got with my phone.
I was bit skeptical ordering from here, but I was satisfied with the end result.
I have also made a detailed video about the iem on YouTube you could check it out for more detailed review.
Disclaimer :- bought the iem with my own money and no one had paid me to influence my thought on this iem. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
1. Great overall abilities for all songs, I personally listen to many genres
2. Very very comfortable I can wear them for hours
3. Nice cable supplied with many terminations. (Although it has some caveats mentioned in the cons section)
4. Can be played via your phones 3.5mm jack (and I am not talking about LG phones here, just some normal budget phone)
5. In some dynamic songs, its very enjoyable to listen too nothing stands out as abnormal and you just enjoy the experience. Which IMO is a big deal rather than all the nitpicks.
1. The cable is quite stiff, I like a bit of a supple cable.
2. The chin slider is absolutely useless and I have to shove a piece of plastic to make it work.
3.Some male vocals specially the ones with a heavy tone sounds distant in their songs.
4. The stock tips that are applied do not use them, use the white straight bore tips supplied in the box for best result. The stock tips makes it too bassy and the soundstage is quite cramped too.
5. The box although good looking and better than the original timeless I suggest buying a cheap SACO case from Amazon for the best result. As those cases are slim and you can chuck your Bluetooth dongle and normal dongle with the iem and have a good portable setup.
I hope this small pros and cons helped your decision a bit.
6. A $31 ($281 in india vs the $260 ordered from china) price bump over the original price. Now I do understand that they have to make profit and import taxes and stuff. But this is what bothered me a bit. This could be considered a nitpick for some or a convinience for some (because you dont deal with hassle of long deliveries + a warranty form audio store + worrying about import taxes + ). I leave this point Upto the reader and how they feel like.
For detailed version you can have a look at my video I made on YouTube.
Overall :- I do suggest giving this iem a go for the price. But do change the tips supplied from the factory to the straight white tips for better bass, mids, treble and soundstage.
Tempotec v6 is a very good dAP , I’m surprised how well they sound given the price tag, The sound is silky smooth & non fatiguing, it’s got all the bells and whistles,
Thanks to mr: Pritam for suggesting this gem.
Shipping was spot on
Definitely recommended 👍
Very well balanced IEM with fun sound and good synergy with my LG v60. Thx Audio Store for super speed delivery as well..
Good product and great delivery
A simple but effective setup for my current evenings- my trusty iphone, a Hidizs OTG adapter, the VE Abigail, and my current favorite the Ety ER2XR.
The Etymotic ER2XR: it is a brilliant IEM! Insane value for money. I'm hearing sounds I've never heard in my songs before. It's such a clean and balanced sound but fun at the same time which I guess is due to the XR (extended response)! Trust me, you gotta hear it to understand. Clear sound, analytical sound, flat sound, cohesive sound, non-sibilant sound, fatigue-free sound, engaging sound, fun sound, head-bobbing sound, body-moving sound! My definition of 'clean and fun sound' has changed after listening to this! This is a kind of clean that one should hear to understand.
Regd. the well-known or sometimes infamous Etymotic fit- fortunately, it was fine for me with the stock double-flange eartip (M size). But I got the SpinFit CP240 double-flange eartips (M size) anyways, and the fit has now become super comfortable. No issues whatsoever! Zero. Nada. In fact, the seal this ear tip and IEM combo gives is something I've never experienced before! This ER2XR + CP240 experience has changed me or even spoilt me in ways I never expected.
I also want to add that I am so impressed with SpinFit ear tips that I have them on all my 7 IEMs now - 64 Audio Trio, Thieaudio Monarch MKII, CA Solaris OG, Fiio FH3, Etymotic ER2XR, Tin Hifi T3+, and Final E3000. I firmly believe that this is a small investment with significant overall returns in terms of fit, comfort, sound quality, and listening pleasure.
While some of the other SpinFits I own have changed the sound signature for the better (e.g. W1, CP100+, CP100) the CP240 has not done much on the sound signature for me. But this CP240 has noticeably improved the fit and comfort with the Etymotic ER2XR; and for these alone, it's absolutely worth it!
Used for connecting to an USB DAC. Make sure that the USB port on the DAC matches to the usb end of this cable .
Great IEM earphones excellent sound quality, fit the ear, but i can say one word awesome....
Very Useful Product for USB C easily connect headphone for the music listener.
