IEM Build & Design
The Yao shell is made up of transparent clear acrylic and it has a smooth surface. On the left faceplate, there is the model logo while on the right faceplate, there is the brand logo. Each faceplate has a sleek silver finish with 3 screws. At the back of each iem, there is the model name in Chinese and English on the left and right respectively. Below the model name is the serial number. The nozzle is slightly angled with 3 bores. The fit is good as the iem is able to sit in my ears comfortably. The housing is light weight with good build quality. The Yao is aesthetically pleasing to look at.
Cable Build & Design
The cable is a detachable 4 core cable with 2 pin 0.78mm connectors. On the connectors, there are blue and red dot on the left and right side respectively so users can differentiate. The connectors have a translucent housing. The cable has a memory wire section that is enclosed in a transparent heat shrink tube. It is not very flexible due to the metal inside that helps to form the shape. The chin slider is made up of a transparent tube and the y splitter has a silver housing. The jack is 3.5mm gold plated straight and it has a silver housing with the brand logo.
