My friend was satisfied with the fit – earhooks over the ear

Earbuds are pretty lightweight, earhooks for sports and quite comfortable to wear whether you have earhooks or not. The eartips typically cover entire head of earbuds they are not regular eartips that fit earbuds’ nozzle.

Call Performance – 6.0/10

These earbuds don’t filter out the noise well, it’s passable if you take calls in quiet environment, if it’s in noisy gym or street callers won’t hear you clearly.

Sound Quality – 6.0/10

My initial impression about Baseus Encok W17 is just like I’m listening to cheap wired earbuds’ sound with bloating bass which I immediately notice.

Bass is quite weak and bloating, mid-range is nothing special a bit forward, high-treble seems not to exist. It’s fine for sports earbuds.

I tried various tracks to find any positive signs about their sound, eventually I think it gets fairly good sound stage.
