Like other wood earbuds we've listened to, the TS01 earphones offered a more natural sound during testing, with a bit more resonance than you might experience from plastic or metal 'buds. However, these weren't quite as open-sounding as the Woodees or even the Timbres, likely because the earpieces are quite a bit smaller. However, the 10mm driver does offer an impressive amount of bass, though we could detect a bit of distortion for some tracks. All in all, we found music to be fairly balanced, with warm mids that are maybe a touch forward at times and reasonably detailed highs. We really enjoyed dance pop, hip-hop, and electronica through these, so if those are the genres you tend to like, the TS01 earbuds are a good choice, especially if you can find them for less than $50.
