Major 5’14 World Music Tonal Earphone Review by earmass (English)


“It is not easy for a new comer to strike the market, especially for market that has been long crowded by competitors. Chord & Major is a good example, few years ago when I heard about them, I can’t wait to listen to their products. ”

“Believe me, they all shine at their own games. That is why I have become Chord & Major’s fans after my first attempt with their product.The idea behind the tonal range IEM is very creative and making sense, taking me as example, my main music is ballad, classical and jazz, I know which IEM is in the game now, you don’t really need to own all to get the best, just buy the one that you think you will use the most. ”

“Sound quality is not the only thing that Chord & Major will shine though, if you ever hold their product, you know how well C&M put effort on the packaging, finishing and build quality of their products, they are not making any typical Chinese product, they are making product that they can proudly called them ‘Product of Taiwan’, they paid neat attention on every detail, honestly I can’t find any manufacturer that willing to pay so much attention on their products, the wood texture and excellent build quality are trademark of their products, this is good culture and I really hope they can continue doing this. ”

“All good culture of C&M are well presented in 5’14 too, the build quality is excellent, the cable strain-relief mechanism is very good and one could expect 5’14 to run long before breakage. Moreover, the packaging is very nice too and I think the earpiece cleaner that bundled in the packaging is practical and handy. I don’t have any comfort issue with 5’14 too, the IEM isolated reasonable well from outer noise. ”

“Not only it has good detail, but it also portray detail in a very natural way (Not harsh). How could I not to mention the bass? Oh! The bass is natural, open and fast. Bass is wide and present enough when the music needed it, but when music didn’t need it, you won’t get those disturbing and boomy bass. The bass performance of 5’14 is detailed and natural enough, it has good texture and amount for the bass, in summary, I will just say that the bass performance is very ‘audiophile’. ”

“When the drums hit faster and faster, 5’14 followed the drums easily, speed and instrument separation is good here. What is surprised me more is the ability of 5’14 to ‘draw’ the shape of instrument, you can actually ‘see’ the instrument when you listened to them, the IEM must be have very least coloration to have this ability, you can listen to track 2 of this album, it really give me new way of listening experience. ”
