Evidson Audiosport W6 Review Activity Headphones on Budget

All in all, for the asking price (currently less than 1K on Amazon), the Evidson AudioSport W6 are a worthy purchase for anyone looking for good audio quality at a great price, not only for Sports, but also for their usual everyday scenarios. Not only would I recommend the BRAINWAVZ XF-200, but I would go so far as to recommend it over the Audio-Technica ATH-CKS550iS, if only for reasons of value and not pure acoustic performance.

SAMSON AUDIOSPORT W6 detailed review

Whenever an not known name appears out of nowhere, we tend to assume that it is another of the many Chinese newcomers who are trying to Overflow the market with cheap products. When Evidson contacted us and offered to send their products for review, almost everyone thought about digital test labs. However, after further investigation, we found out that this is actually an Indian brand from Chennai. Can an Indian challenger compete with the Chinese? When I think of previous attempts in the same way, Signature Acoustics and Tekfusion come to mind. Although their offers have been decent overall, there have been mistakes in their portfolio. How does Evidson’s Premium Offer work? Let’s find out…

The Evidson AudioSport W6 is a powerful in-ear headset that focuses on sports and activity. Of course, these headphones should have a certain build quality while offering a good fit. In this regard, the W6 does not disappoint. The size and shape of the matter ensure a perfect seal and the loop that goes through the ear adds extra support. It would be very difficult for you to remove them from your ear, even if you tried on purpose. The cable only has a one-button clicker, as opposed to a three-button volume +/- that most IEMs offer at this price, which is a disadvantage.

The AudioSport W6 comes with five sets of silicone tips in different sizes, including double-flange and three-flange tips (if you prefer). The box mentions a storage bag, but I couldn’t find any in my exam unit. To be fair, given that the Evidson is a good price lower than the XF-200, it would be too much to expect a carrying matter of the quality offered by Brainwavz. Still, some kind of cover, or ideally a blanket, would have been nice.

What really matters now is the performance. The characteristic sound of the W6 is surprisingly balanced compared to the open bass IEMs that make up the bulk of the offer at this price. I threw a few Genres in there with a mix of Dream Theater, Bedouin and Maya Soundclash, and it crossed paths quite regularly. The entire frequency range is well represented, but I would like there to be a little more detail in the upper ranges. The bass will be enough for most listeners, but some “bass heads” may not be found in this department.


All in all, for the asking price (currently less than 1K on Amazon), they are a worthy purchase for those who are looking for good audio quality at a great price, not only for Sports, but also for their usual daily scenarios. Not only would I recommend the BRAINWAVZ XF-200, but I would go so far as to recommend it over the Audio-Technica ATH-CKS550iS, if only for reasons of value and not pure acoustic performance.
