As much as possible, I prefer supporting local brands. I like being patriotic in my own ways. Like in choosing my daily driver for my not-so audiophile needs. For years, I have been using Chinese brands or ChiFi as my IEM. I came across this local brand a few months back and I finally decided to take the plunge and try out their products.
I love the Lucid IEM by TuneOut Audio. Worth the buy! I’m not really a hardcore audiophile so I can’t give you the technical side for my impression of Lucid IEM, but I can say that’s it’s bang for the buck.
The sound quality is pretty decent. Aesthetics is actually great. I love the design and the build of both the cable and the IEM.
The customer support is also great. Fast shipping and the seller is very responsive. You also won’t be disappointed with their after sales support. They offer 7 days instant replacement, and in the future should your purchase encounter issues, they offer free repairs! Of course you would need to pay for the materials to be replaced, if there’s any. For an IEM less than Php 1,000.00, this is actually a nice customer service. It exceeded my expectation.
Overall, I highly recommend Lucid IEM by TuneOut Audio. Not only you are supporting the local brand, but you are also getting your money’s worth.
