Hypersense HEX02 (Eclipse)

?9mm Dynamic Driver


Hypersense. An unknown brand that tries to make a statement. What's the statement? Even I'm not sure. A decent-sounding pair with an OK build quality for the same price (if not higher) as some highly-impressive hybrid pairs that you can get nowadays.

If Hypersense wants to compete, they should make an effort. Their current offering can barely keep up with the already crowded competition.


  • Crisp and quite detailed treble.
  • Decent highly emphasized mids.
  • Very comfortable to wear and very easy to get a proper seal.


  • Lacking and unexciting bass response. Not sure for which genres these earphones were intended.
  • Dry-sounding mids and vocals. Not enough warmth.
  • The build quality overall, and of the cable in particular, is uninspiring, to say the least.

Comfort & Fit

Despite their weird shape, these earphones are actually comfortable. They press slightly against your ear to keep a firm seal and prevent them from falling out. Not the best form factor to achieve this, but it works.

Lows / Bass

Considering these earphones' "pop-oriented" appeal, I was expecting these earphones to be bass-canons. That, however, isn't the case. Many will find that bass enough, but I would consider the bass lacking both in punch and depth. Sub-bass is basically non-existent, these's no rumble, and the mid-bass is just about enough to warm up the mids, but not enough to impress me, especially when I listened to some electronic music, and even some folk punk. The bass was just unexciting.

Mids / Vocals

The mids are actually quite decent, although overemphasized compared to the lows, thus makes the sound somewhat unbalanced and shouty. Tonally, they are a bit weird, which resolves after getting used to the sound signature. Never the less, I can't say that I'm entirely satisfied with how these mids sound. They are just too loud and intimate for my taste.

Highs / Treble

The highs are probably the highlight of these earphones, being both quite crisp and detailed. It's neither bright, nor dark. A neutral and natural kind of treble that's comfortable for long listening sessions but also doesn't emphasize microdetail.
