When it comes to headphone, Korean has never been known for a brand of its own in the past. However, they have been in the OEM business for quite some time now and managed to pump out really big volume of headphone, especially earphones, which are often labeled with other companies’ name. Cresyn is perhaps one of the first to introduce its own premier line-up of headphone under the Phiaton brand. EXS, or Excellent Sound, is another brand from one of those really big ‘behind-the-scene’ Korean OEM company. They introduced their first model, the lower-end-market-targeted X10 about two years ago. It didn’t really make a big splash, but overall the sale was reported to be fairly well, especially in Korea and U.K. Late last year, they decided to release a follow up model, the X20, but aiming higher this time. Costing around 195000Won (or roughly US$175) and 3 times more expensive than the previous X10, EXS really do mean business this time with the X20. But does it fare well against the similarly priced and spec’ed B2 / DBA-02?
