Here is my Amazon UK review. There aren't that many detailed reviews of the sound. I'd like the company to maybe suggest how the Boom and Mix differ soundwise, and not just read specs. Here is review on BoomWell, after thinking these were nothing special, i gave them a couple days to let myself get used to the sound. I have/had up to 80 sets (mostly earphones, then headphones) ranging from the budget (£20) up to £300. I bought these on a whim after there claim to have excellent bass. At first i thought it was a little too bass heavy but it does grow on you pretty quickly.Bass - Very low and mostly behaves quite well. It has decent resolution, but sometimes can be a bit boomy and overpowering. Still, it's fun and musical and works across most genres like pop, rock, hip-hop and obviously EDM/Dance as they have marketed them.MIDS - They are relatively detailed, but the dominant low end can intrude a bit and effect overall detail. They are slightly recessed, and follow the V-Shaped sound of the Boom (V-Shape means more prominent bass and highs/treble with mids slightly back in the mix). It's mainly micro-detail though that they struggle with, but they are still enjoyable and musical. Upper mids are a bit clearer than lower, and this does help with detail.Highs/treble - Fairly detailed and crisp, a little artificial at times and the way they've been tuned for more modern music can make older music a little peaky. Still, they pick out instruments well and have good clarity and they inject a bit of space and air to the mix.Soundstage - Fairly decent, not that deep. They aren't out of your head but not to narrow either. Separation of instruments is okay, helped with the upper mids and highs being pretty clear and slightly thin... which compliments the fuller bottom end quite well.Genres - Well, as advertised they work well with music like EDM. I would have liked the sub bass to be a bit more quicker and slightly thinner and not bleed in to lower mids as much. I have other sets that go for a similar sound as the Boom, but they are quicker and moer nimble and still very low (e.g. AudioSense AS 20). I'm not sure if the more expensive Mix (£60) goes a bit further and takes a bit of the colour and smoothness away from the mids and tightens up the top end. If the Boom could do this then it would be a very good IEM at £30.As it does as advertise i.e. beats Beats and is great for EDM and at £30, i must give it 5 stars. It is quite a commercial, young sound... but audiophiles may enjoy them too as they are lots of fun and do their best to be more than bass monsters. I'm enjoying hearing the bass lines get centre stage in a lot of my old music, without losing the details of the rest of the mix.Quick notes of build and accessories...Quite a modern look, and nice to look at. Plastic but feel sturdy enough. The flat cable might take a bit of time to get used to, but I'm not hearing any microphonics (noise from body movement when out and about touching them). The provided tips could be better. Two sizes isn't good enough. I'm lucky that i have over a hundred sets to choose from from other IEMs and i could trial and error til i found one that works. A smaller gap at the tip works best for me, and a more rubbery material helps with depth and isolation, allowing for bass tones to be tighter and detail to be higher. You MUST get a good seal with them. They don't provide foam tips, but the ones i have that match size wise did take a bit of the smoothness and richness away from the sound.Easy to recommend.
Never heard of Pump before but read the reviews and bought a Boom pair have not been disappointed sound great and they pretty tough as they lay in my backpack until my case arrived would get again
Ive been an avid Pump follower since they first came about with the Harry Shotta ear phones and v1 & v2 ear phones. Then i decided to get Pump's in ear headphones "Pure" - i was not disappointed one bit! The sound quality is outstanding.So after i saw the kickstarter campaign for your new consumer entry level ear phones, i had to have a piece of the action. I went for the lower cost versions, "Boom" - again, the sound quality is superb!! 5* for price, aesthetics, sound quality and overall just a decent pair of ear phones! Thanks!
Anyone who is solidly aging like myself that can think back to the days of C&C Music Factory (Things that make you go hmmmm) will get this reference. These headphones have the Boom, adding a level of bass I can't find anywhere else in simple, bluetooth, in-ear models. Can phones do the trick, but it's pretty foolish to mow the lawn in giant headphones. These are slick, sleek, and have not only bass but solid mids and crisp trebles. The major player this space (rhymes with Beets) brought bass to the front in headset sound, but the price and the overall package is highly lacking for the dollars spent. These pumps have a nice price, a nice round sound, and work on more levels than just electronica style music. Highly recommended, I have had nothing but good experiences with mine.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XF2ayWcJfxoand if you are *really* old school, run them to this tune. If you get this reference, you *really* have the boom.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BaeNelsAOGo
