Magaosi has been turning heads with its audiophile-approved K3 and K5 IEMs, and the BK50 offers similar value at a much lower price. Its hybrid driver unit—one balanced armature and one dynamic driver per ear—is a rarity among IEMs in this price category. The construction is a striking hybrid, too, with a Brazilian walnut cavity chosen for its acoustic properties and an anodized metal shell. Of the sound, Provocative Ear says the BK50 is “more V-shaped, warmer, and less forward overall than the BK-35, with even more (well-controlled) sub-bass. These have the unusual quality of being very smooth-sounding without sacrificing micro details … Overall character is refined … without sibilance or peaky highs; not as revealing as some other top-tier players, but they give up nothing in listenability.”
Note: At checkout, choose the IEMs in a gold or rose gold finish. Both versions have inline controls compatible with Apple and Android.
