10mm Square Planar Driver + 1BA IEM
In order to achieve a more natural and harmonious sound performance, Kinera Celest Gumiho adopts the new generation 10*10mm Square Planar Driver, complemented with a Kinera custom Balanced Armature. Planar driver breaks the limit of low-frequency and presents a deep bass while BA driver attains a delicate yet elegant high frequency.
The Inspiration of Kinera Gumiho
The image of Gumiho on the faceplate is inspired by Chinese mythology-a book named “Classic of Mountains and Rivers” . Gumiho is one of the most familiar characters by the public as it represents auspiciousness, expectations and prosperity. Finely engraved cloud patterns, depicting a lifelike scene of Gumiho stepping on the clouds and riding the wind. Color matching cavity and embossed patterns make Gumiho an art of modern aesthetics and traditional culture.
Shocking Bass, Surprising Tuning
The highlight of Gumiho earphone must be its shocking low frequency performance. You will enjoy a speaker-like loose and natural sound with texture, volume, and transient response. Mids and highs are not neglected. Vocals are clear and detailed while the high frequency is flexible and extended. Gumiho has an excellent management to maintain the harmony and consistency of the sound to present a bright, pleasant and not elegant sound.
Detachable Silver-plated+Alloy Copper Cable
Included cable of Gumiho is made of 124 strands of silver-plated copper and alloy pure copper, via 4 core cross knitting technique. 0.78mm 2Pin universal connector is compatible with most replacement cables. Detachable features means you can easily and freely replace it with your preferred cable.
3D Printed Ergonomic Shell, Comfortable Wearing
3D printed cavity is another shining point of Gumiho. Smooth contour lines and unique cavity shape ensures comfort even for long-time wearing session. With frosted process and careful craftsmanship, the shell is resistant to everyday wear and tear.

Silicon rubber eartips*6 pairs
Lush, sumptuous and liquid comes to mind. With the right ear tips, bass is adequate. Treble can be a touch bright if the ear tip does not seal well though. Superb value for the price. Compared to the timeless, they are 9/10s as good.
It's a nice set! I expected more tho, and for my ears they are a little too bright. I'm pretty new to this hifi thing and my previous iems is bassy and warm. The electronic trap I want my best IEMs to play nicely, isn't the best with this set. I've probably should hade done a better research.
Warm, not bloated though. With natural harmonic extension of cymbals. Not most detailed for sure, but I can listen it for hours. Worth the price
If anyone knows anything about car Audio, you probably know about Kicker's square subwoofers, which, by using the square shape helps reduce sound distortion by increasing the rigidity of the speaker. Kinera has made a Square Planar driver, so, imagine bass that has no distortion, while having the accuracy of Planar driver. To take up the heavy lifting, you also have a Balanced Armature somehow crammed into the shell that does all the heavy lifting for the treble.
But, what about the mids? Well... here is the rub, the Planar handles the lower mids while the BA handles the upper mids. If you are listening to music where the sound sits in the lower and upper mids, the crossover between the planar and the BA can be an unpleasant experience. This effect can be most noticeable with guitars with more than six strings, I listened to "BFG Division" from the Doom soundtrack and it was not pleasant experience. So, sorry heavy guitar fans, these are not for you. These are fine with Punk rock and other rock music, EDM sounds amazing, clubby pop music and Hip Hop are fine, even more so if the production and mixing is well done.
These will work with a phone, though with the volume turned up to 70-80% to get a nice volume level
Summary: EDM Enthusiasts, Club pop music People, Hip Hop habitué's, These IEM's are made for you. Low distortion, clear Bass and low mids with a thump that is respectable for a IEM and a nice crisp Treble that is not drowned out by the bass. deducted the one star for having avoid the urge to throw up after attempting to listen to "BFG Division".
I do not love the overly dark presentation of this IEM. Guitar’s specifically sound very weird. Good for some genres, not my library though.
I brought this in the sale and i am impressed, i have Goldplanars already but wanted some planar iems which did not break the bank.
These have a very good amount of bass and sub bass, its not overwhelming instead its like listening to a very good pair of floor standing speakers.
Mids are very good, focus and imaging is good.
Highs are excellent and that has been achieved through the balanced armature.
Soundstage is wide not the widest but has decent seperation and balance. Instruments sound life like and both female and male voice is good too.
There is a very nice carry case and keyring and the cable feels good here.
These might need some burn in time but out of the box they are fine.
Highs dependant on what your listening to may feel slightly elevated compared to a planar only iem but it is what you expect from a balanced armature. Its a planar iem for under 50 dollars so as a starting point its very good and a worthy contender to most iems i have used.
