The Audio Lokahi has left its mark on the audio world. Now, it’s time for an upgrade with Audio Hekili. Created by a freelance engineer who has built up a sizable reputation in the Asian DIY in-ear monitor community, this IEM uses advanced crossover designs that exceed the primitive single-order passes adopted by regular IEMs. Hekili means ‘Thunder’ or ‘Passion’, and its precise tuning achieves every target set for true-to-life audio. Bespoke, hand-crafted housings and cable complete this one-of-a-kind IEM.
Feel the Thunder
Are you a performing artist, studio engineer or music enthusiast? The Audio Henkili is bound to impress. 7 balanced armatures and a single dynamic driver ensure true-to-life sound. Each driver is tuned to perform at its optimal frequency to minimise total harmonic distortion while maximising audio resolution.
Tuned with Passion
Two high-frequency tweeters are tuned to not just match the famed ‘Harman Curve’ survey, but extend the treble decay to highlight the harmonics along with every detail. This increases the airiness of the music. The dynamic driver enhances the bass and sub-bass without hindering the mids which are kept at neutral to ensure a natural tone. The end result: An amazing performance across instruments and genres.
Here to Take the Music World by Storm
Every Hekili unit is handcrafted using medical-grade UV resin. This material is popular among the biggest IEM brands as it improves durability and superior comfort. The ergonomic shell features a unique, elegant and beautiful design. To ensure the highest quality audio, it is paired with an upgraded 4-core silver-plated OCC cable. The MMCX connection makes swapping cables a breeze for better customisation. The cable and connectors have been tested rigorously to last a long time.
These come with minimal packaging. Basic DIY stuff. Understandably made by a single person. The faceplates look gorgeous. Cable is basic but surprisingly light weight ,they don't have pvc ear hooks. However it compliments the resin made IEMs. Sound wise these are fantastic. These are special. The bass generated from the DD is addictive. Coherence of the BAs are spot on. Treble is well extended, non-fatiguing. Mids are adequate. Overall presentation is musical. Honestly I don't have any higher priced IEMs to compare. But I do feel these are are huge upgrade over my other IEMs of around 10-15k range. Special thanks to Pritam for recommending these.
Thank you for your wonderful review! We're thrilled you're enjoying the Audio Hekili IEM.
Audio hekili was recommended by Pritam and I was very sceptical whether to go for hekili or to invest in a known brand. I wanted to pair a good iem to go with tempotec v6 Dap.
Finally made up my mind and got my Audio Hekili. Till date I am loving every bit of it.
I am not a very technical person who knows a lot about imaging, layering and resolution stuffs but I do know to distinguish between good and bad sounding iem’s.
Coming back to Hekili, it’s an enjoyable listening and it has all the ingredients like punchy bass, good vocals and pleasurable highs. It doesn’t fatigue my ears and I could listen music for long hours and the details are well presented. I would like to thank Pritam again for recommending Hekili
Thank you for your kind words! We are glad that you like our product and find it enjoyable to listen to.
Very good imaging, for a balanced armature not much sibilant which is good, nice details, good isolation.
Brought this from audio store, this set is mostly neutral tuned but vocals are a little bit warm, just the way I like it, good amount of bass that doesn't bleed into the midrange, the highs are pretty good and doesn't become sibiliant, adele-set fire to the rain and bohemian rhapsody were pretty fun listen on this set. One thing though, wasn't able to detach the cable but then again I wasn't interested in breaking my set. Will change cable some day with one that has a mic for general purpose use

The sound quality is so good
True tone and Beautiful piece! Sounds very good on stage.
It's an IEM like cable for full sized headphones which is extremely flexible and durable at the same time. A nice upgrade to those hard rubber cables or even a fabric cable. A must buy!!!
It works very well but noise is coming when connected to mobile anyway value for money
The greatest entry-level DAC for anyone looking to start their audio journey. The addition of a DAC to the earphones improves the sound quality.
Superb for music
This small device seriously improves the audio quality of your IEM. It gives boost to your IEM to run with its full potential..
I have paired this with my KZ ZSN Pro X nd Salnotes Zero nd there was a lot more improvement in the audio quality. The bass became tight, quality was improved everything sounded well. Before pairing they sounded different nd felt not upto the mark.
If you're on tight budget nd want to experience the audiophile journey then this is the best portable DAC you can start with. It costs less than 1.5K nd it performs way more than the price.
You won't be disappointed at all.
Extremely well made cable. Feels premium. Sound of the iem definitely got a boost
This is my first IEM, choosing BLON was not easy because there are so many options in that price sector. I was using SkullCandy Dime for music before this and HP gaming Earphone for my competitive gaming sessions. I wanted something that can fulfill my both needs so did some research and choose BLON. It's sound balanced, it's really good. I mostly listen to Jazz, Blues and Progressive Rocks in this days rarely some Pop and EDM's. Bass is there but not Heavy like BOAT's and not too low like Skull Candy. So in sound sector am happy.
Music is very clear. Great pair of drivers worth the price. First time iem buyers can surely go for it
I found this the be best entry level DAC.
Recommended for the beginner users.
The output is great and i have used with my IEMs. Sound output is nice ofcourse not as close to my LG v30 plus mobile.
If you have black/stealth styled IEMs like I do with the Truthear Hexas, and are seeking to use a balanced amplifier for them (I'm eq'ing them through the Qudelix 5K), the Tripowin Amber seem have the most congruent look for that setup. Matte black + copper looks quite suave in almost all settings.
Soundwise these cables do not diminish the original sound quality – they seem acoustically transparent. Could clearly hear the difference between my OG BTR5 balanced output and the Qudelix 5K's through this.
I prefer using my Sennheiser HD599 for long calls as they have a lighter clamp compared with my other headphones, but they do not come with a mic. This converter allowed me to get a Vmoda Boom Pro style cable and attach it to the HD599 for ultimate conference call bliss.
P.S. Works with my ATH M40x (and therefore the M50x too) as well! Might be an option for Sennheiser HD560S / HD400 Pro users as well since they use the same connector as the HD599
Delivers high quality music. Very convenient to use and carry
