Customer Service & Communication
I reached out to Vincent Song from Aroma Audio. His service is impeccable. Timely responses and sound knowledge
his probably makes the product all the more enjoyable ;o) Which IN MY OPINION is extremely critical,
especially if you’re not a professional musician but a music enthusiast.
Packing and Accessories
paperboy packing with the product name and graphic on the front sideside, and the product information on the back side.
The WGP comes a stock OOC cable that is nice and supple with virtually no microphonics; in fact it’s one of the best stock cable I have.
Looks good and sounds good. The memory wire makes handling a little fiddly which may infuriate the most anal of listeners.
I’ve done some burning in for this review – about 100 hours or so. But planning to burn in somemore to hit 200 hours.
I’ve used Hugo Chord as DAC only, feeding in my Onkyo DPX1 as source, then amping with my Kojo Blue amp.
Surprisingly good treble extension. The WGP is able to produce sparkling Highs. Fantastic job of tuning this hybrid.
The only other hybrid iem that satisfies my treble needs is the UM Maverick (a Japan market only, tuned by Mix Wave JP) Bass
As this iem uses dual dynamic drivers, more power is required to drive it properly. Using less powered source such as
smart phones you may find the bass less than satisfying but with more power
(e.g. Amp it or use a more powerful source) , you will be rewarded with substantial amount of good quality bass. It hits hard ,
and is tight and punchy but not overpowering the mids and trembles and isn’t muddy at all. It sounds airy and natural.
Initially I found the mids quite recessed but upon some burning in, the mids are more forward and engaging.
Turning up the volume power helps to bring up the mids somewhat, which is rather peculiar but interesting.
Soundstage is spacious and expansive. There is sufficient headroom and a depth to the presentation.
I’d describe the sound of the WGP as reference and flat but with a hint of warmth.
This may actually explain why the mids may sound recessed vis a vis other more intimate iems.
I actually prefer this, analytical yet not too colored. This is transparent yet airy and musical.
Apparently I’m the first one in Singapore to have this. Let’s hope I’m not the only one
