Don’t let the Kinera Seed’s price tag fool you: It delivers the sound and looks of a more expensive IEM. For one thing, it features a hybrid configuration with one dynamic driver and one balanced armature driver per ear—rare for an IEM in this category. And design wise, it’s decidedly premium, with a gold-colored metal nozzle and a glossy finish on the faceplate and shell. In fact, the Seed compares favorably to Kinera’s high-end offering, the H3. The neutral sound signature puts a slight emphasis on the vocals, and HeadPie has this to say: “While in things like overall bass amount the Seed can't compete, the tonality of the H3's tuning and sibilance issues just couldn't beat the more natural tuning of the Seed.” To learn more, check out the reviews on Head-Fi.
