iBasso IT01x impressions and comparisons




Quick look
Impressions and comparisons

The IT01x is a side grade and an upgrade from IT01s/IT00 in that it shares similarities of both but exceeds them in overall performance (and fit/comfort). 

The IT01s and IT01x are close in some ways such as nice full bodied low end, a certain refinement, medium soundstage. 

The IT01s shares the fullness of IT00 esp in the lows, the IT01s is more refined, a bit laid back, bass medium fast, forward vocals and a more spherical stage than IT00 height and width stage.

The IT01x is more transparent, still full bodied but more controlled, a satisfying low end and active mid range, separation is better, it approaches reference tuning (IT01s is more warm), a bit more linear with some slight coloring (less than IT00, IT01s), technical.



In contrast to my earlier guessing - the IT01x is closer in general signature to IT04 than IT07.

It would be an upgrade over the IT00, as for the IT01s I think it is overall taking into account fit, comfort, inner components and improved DD driver etc. But in some ways it is also a side grade as ones taste may lean towards the comparatively warmer (though not excessively) IT01s rather than the more airy, transparent, technical and more linear IT01x.

I find myself that i will use the IT01x more than i used the IT00 or IT01s.

  1. How is the isolation? Does it pick up wind noises?

    1. I dont have the IT01 as with a general clear out it went to an educator or a musician.
      I thought the IT01s surpassed the IT01 if thats any help. And i choose the IT01x over the IT01s. Fit is also great. Depends on what sound signature you are after also. I do find each successive release by iBasso in earphones and daps usually is better than the orevious
