  • Neutral balanced timbre, clean sound
  • Mild, well controlled dynamics
  • Smooth Treble, fast decays
  • Forward Mids with neutral tonality, realistic vocals
  • Solid edged tone for percussions and guitars
  • Fast, snappy Mid-Bass
  • Great speed and transients
  • Clean layers separation and imaging
  • Good Macro Details, depends on how resolving the paired IEMs/Buds/HPs are


  • Weak driving power, anemic with high impedance or low sensitivity IEMs/HPs
  • Caved in soundstage with mids being too closed in
  • Layers separation feels congested
  • Not great with Lo-Fi
  • Sub-Bass barely audible
  • Does not work with iOS


Baseus Type-C. Not much to talk about this unit. It is simply too average even within the ultra budget price range. Biggest issue being narrow sounding with caved in soundstage and weak driving power. Even with HZSOUND Heart Mirror and Moondrop Aria, two of my most efficient IEMs the volume needed over 60/100 to attain proper loudness. With Etymotic ER4SR needed 80/100 and TIN HiFi P1 100/100. It was outright dry and thin sounding on anything above 45 Ohm or below 100bd of sensitivity.

While it is admirably clean sounding, dynamics are somewhat lean with mild bass responses and rolled off Treble exhibiting fast decays. Speed was surprisingly great with great resistance to congestion.


Best Pairing: Technically adept IEMs/Earbuds under 50Ω

    Is it normal for those dongles to present extremely high noise floors? I bought one to use with my Galaxy S21 and it shows extreme amounts of hissing, with either my KZ ZSN Pros, Samsung AKG earbuds orTakstar HI2050 headphones.

    I tried using it on my S21, iPad Air and Windows computer as sources but it hisses on all three on varying amounts, from barely audible on the iPad to ear piercingly high on the S21.

    I was thinking of getting the CX-Pro or the notVE Abigail with the Monk Lites. Would it be worth it paying double for the Abigail over the CX-Pros just for the bundled Monks or do you have other reccomendations?

    Thank you in advance.

      No it is not normal. I have used over 120 dongles and only one or two are noisy and these are the very low quality versions. I have no idea how you are getting high floor noises
