Raycon E25: Unboxing

Table of Contents

Introduction

This video is sponsored by Raycon earbuds.

Is what I would say if I have a YouTube career, but unfortunately I haven’t posted a video in over a year. Subscribe anyway.

You’ve seen the ads if you’re an avid YouTube watcher like me, and you know you can’t go a day without having Ray J’s new audio brand getting shoved down your slimy throat like the filthy consumers we all are. And after hearing the very obviously scripted sponsored segments for the 27th time you probably have the entire script memorised, particularly some variation of this little blurb:

The sound quality is just as amazing as the other top audio brands at half the price. And then yadda yadda something about having great bass. Big claims for sure, but don’t think for a second that I’m taking them seriously.

So due to their strange North American exclusivity, I wasn’t able to jump the Raycon hypetrain when it was at its peak. So now I specially thank Raycon “netforce” for helping me acquire a set so that I may finally review this meme of an IEM. So without further ado: the E25.

Non-audio opinions

My unboxing posts are pretty much the only times I’ll ever talk about build quality, accessories and the like. I’m not really the person to ask about these things as I don’t really care about them that much.

Accessories

  • Tips
  • USB-C cable

Connection: SBC only

Build: glossy plastic finish, reasonably hefty and doesn’t feel as flimsy as other “chifi budget TWS” that I’ve tried.

Fit: no issues, as expected for a “bud-type” TWS.

Isolation: average.

Initial impressions

  • AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  • The E25 manages to sound simultaneously bloated and piercing at the same time.
    • Vocals are almost completely drowned out by the insane bass boost, which registers at a whopping +20dB at least from the lowest point at 600Hz.
    • Sibilant consonants are particularly nasty. Normally a treble emphasis would be a decent counterbalance to excessive bass boost, but this sounds like pain on both ends of the spectrum instead.
  • No need to wait for my review (which will still be happening). This is garbage.

Measurements

Perfectly balanced, as all things should be.

  1. I don’t know if I’m too deep into this hobby but that graph just made laugh out loud, knowing all the YouTubers have no problem, sponsoring it

  2. I saw a frequency response graph of these yesterday and laughed. I don’t know how made there way to you.

  3. “Use code “crinacle” to get 0% off your next order.”

    Errr…thanks for the savings….double meaning…I also refer to the graph.

    P.S. I didn’t expect the Raycon to sound any different.

    P.P.P.S. CA have generously supplied the usual suspects with free packages of their three latest offerings – retail worth >$4000. I already tried to decipher the empty-word container/autogenerated review of one of these – the one with the shabby wooden table. Since one never bites the hand that feeds them…could you please sneak into Zeppelin & co and give us an “unbought” impression? Between the lines, I read the Ara are a screamer.

    It is already suspicious that a company releases different models in the same price segment. Get ’em all?

  4. ‘Jimmy Tries World’ did a “debunking” of these. They area rebranding of cheap Blitzwolf BW-FYE5, $25 aliexpress plugs.

  5. Considering Crinacle consider the $30~50 KZ S2 TWS “an adequate pick, just don’t expect too much. rank : C”
    This $80 Raycon is apparently way below that at unranked.
