- Smooth easy listening
- Well built
- Not the most detailed sound
Fit for intended purpose
Fit and Comfort
The Bevi 2 are tiny, their small housing combined with assortment of tips means most people will easily get a good fit with these. They can be worn with the cable straight down, or up and behind your ear. I prefer the over-ear wearing style as it’s more secure for me, but either way these are super easy to get a good fit with due to their slim housings.
Comfort is also great, it is a combination of their design and also the weight of the IEM’s, slim and lightweight makes for a very comfortable IEM that is easy to use for long listening sessions. Find the right tips and you won’t have any comfort issues with the Bevi 2, they are one of the comfiest IEM’s I’ve tested recently.
Features and Compatibility
The Bevi 2 have a detachable MMCX cable which includes a 3-button remote with mic for taking phone calls. This is a great feature for the price and the cable feels well made, they also use a single balanced armature driver which isn’t as common in such budget models.
At 22 Ohms impedance and 106dB sensitivity these are designed for mobile use, and can easily be powered by mobile phones and portable devices. They also sound great out of these devices, so no need for a high-end standalone DAP to get the most out of these.
Bass: The Bevi 2 is tuned to have a relatively full bodied sound, there is excellent warmth from a single balanced armature here, and more then enough bass presence to satisfy most users. Transient response is always a benefit of balanced armatures, and the Bevi 2 is no exception, being full yet nimble, they don’t get bogged down when the mix gets complex. Depending on what tips you have fitted, you can slightly tune the low end, with silicone tips sounding cleaner and more precise whereas foam are a bit fuller and warmer sounding. These won’t be for the hardcore bassheads, but they are on the warmer side of sound making them the perfect travel or exercise earphone without breaking the bank.
Midrange: The midrange is largely clean and clear, with minimal influence from the low end, these are not the most detailed or transparent earphones out there, and there are others within this price bracket that do better. But that’s not what Lypertek were looking to achieve, they are smooth and enjoyable, everything you need is there, nothing is excessive or forced. The more I listen the more I appreciate that everything comes across relatively well balanced, if not slightly U-shaped. These are a put in and forget earphone, with enough energy and drive to be enjoyable, but without sounding too energetic or standing out at all, they are somewhat unremarkable but remarkable for being so. These are refined, they don’t need peaks or trickery to make them sound good, they just rely on having great sound.
Treble: The treble is sweet and smooth, it may be a little too laid back to be considered neutral and in line with the rest of the sound but it does make the Bevi 2 super easy to listen to. It is there with good articulation, but it is lacking a little bite and energy, there are no nasty peaks that stand out and they do roll off a little early however what is there is done very well. If you are a treble sensitive person the Bevi 2 should be perfect, they have the right amount of presence to be there and noticeable without overstepping the line and becoming harsh or sibilant. There is no lower treble boost to bring out a sense of energy or false detail, instead there is a seamless transition between the upper mids and treble.
Genres and Soundstaging
The Bevi 2 are fairly well suited to most genres, they are notably smooth which works a bit better with softer tracks but they do sound enjoyable with most genres.
The soundstaging isn’t something that stands out as being overly impressive, they have a slightly more up-front sound to them rather than being overly wide and deep.
Who are they for?
- Those wanting a great value wired earphone
- People looking for a full bodied and fatigue free earphone under £100
- Users with narrow/small ear canals who struggle with larger earphones
The Bevi 2 are extremely good value, you get a comfortable and well built earphone with detachable cable and a single BA driver for under £100. On top of this the sound is refined and smooth, without any fatiguing qualities, they are just easy and enjoyable without any traits that could be annoying or painful over long periods of listening. It doesn’t matter what you throw at them, they play it back without missing a beat, yes you can find cleaner and more transparent models at this price, but very few are as good for long listening as the Bevi 2.
