EXA is an in-ear headphone with a hybrid structure of 1 dynamic driver + 3 balanced armature drivers. The original intention of the design is to achieve the design goal by adopting a simple, reasonable, efficient configuration and striving to provide users with a mature hybrid earphone at a reasonable price.


The HEXA has a more industrial design this time, with a translucent shell with a dark matte finish.

The faceplate has a dark black metallic finish that looks good too. The shape looks somewhat similar to the much-loved Symphonium Helios, but only the front side looks similar. It is lightweight and fits the HEXA quite well.


HEXA provides a square yet smooth ID design that can compress the cavity volume as much as possible on the premise of ensuring wearing reliability, ensuring lightweight, and reducing auricularly while using a CNC anodized sandblasted metal faceplate.

Touch to relieve pain caused by long-term wearing. Additionally, the aluminum alloy faceplate is locked with self-tapping screws and secured with adhesive, so you don’t have to worry about it accidentally falling over.


The HEXA’s midrange is neutral but slightly darker with lower treble tones. The resolution is excellent thanks to bass control, instrument separation, and multi-driver configuration.

Vocals are clear, but the HEXA doesn’t have the clarity typical of entry-level ChiFi IEMs. Instead, it prioritizes tone and doesn’t try to impress with excessive detail retrieval or an overly advanced midrange. Instead, it creates a darker background to enhance the notes.


As a hybrid IEM, passive isolation is possible. Compared to other vented IEM designs, this is average. Although the HEXA does emit some sound,

it is not very loud and may be loud enough for others to hear at normal volume in a quiet area. I think it’s great for commuting to work or using on an airplane.

These final impressions were performed on an SMSL SU-9 connected to an SMSL SP400. This impression is what HEXA sounds like to my ears. This was also using the Spinfit CP100.

I find that the smaller diameter stock tips provide the same sound to my ears, but the organ seal lasts longer on the CP100. Ear tip selection, DAC/amp selection, etc. will produce a different result and feel than what my ears hear from a particular device.

HEXA has been tuned for a more mature and neutral sound. I was really disappointed when I first heard it because I like a bit of excitement in my IEM tuning.

After a significant amount of listening and A/B testing, I think this is a very competitive set. The low end is neutral with a light bass boost.

The bass has a decent impact but doesn’t sound overly full. It’s average sounding with the ability to slam a little harder when called for.

The mids have decent instrumental detail, but the vocals sound very good with a more natural presentation. However, the vocals don’t have much life and sound like they’re missing something.

Although the mids and highs are boosted, they still lack clarity and have very little sibilance. There is a lack of sparkle and pop at the end of the instrument sound in the high register. It seems softer than I would like.

Nonetheless, I am still hearing good news coming my way. This gives the feeling that HEXA is absolutely capable of the price.


HEXA can be driven using most modern dongles. We preferred the power of the 3.5mm cable with HEXA and found that it boosted the volume on some source gears and only slightly increased the volume on others.

The HEXA is so insensitive that there was no floor noise at all when tested with balanced cables.

The basic cable is a black glossy rubber braided cable that is on the simple and inexpensive side. I think it works perfectly, but the way I package the IEMs for storage means they get tangled when I take them out of the carrying case.

The Truthhear HEXA is an impressive IEM that boasts top-notch passive noise isolation and a stylish, comfortable design. The sound signature is a good balance of warmth and neutrality, making it suitable for long listening sessions.

The low-mids are a bit boomy and the midrange is neutral but slightly darker, providing excellent resolution and instrument separation.

The treble is smooth and non-aggressive, delivering ample detail without fatigue. The soundstage and imaging are decent, although a bit narrow and intimate.

Overall, the Truthhear HEXA is a solid choice that competes with the best IEMs for just $67.99 price range.
