Audio Lokahi was founded by a freelance engineer who has built up a sizable reputation in the DIY in-ear monitor (IEM) community throughout Asia. By using advanced crossover designs that far exceed the primitive single-order passes that most other IEM’s utilize, Audio Lokahi is able to achieve the ideal target tunings with extreme precision. With a vision for paramount sound quality and bespoke character, Audio Lokahi is committed to hand crafting each earpiece in small batches and continually innovating the field of in-ear monitors by implementing unique tuning strategies with the latest driver technologies.
The name Lokahi is derived from two words: Lō, which means to obtain, and ‘ekahi, which is the number one. Together, Lokahi stands for obtaining something great together. Whether you are a performing artist, a studio engineer, or just a lover of great music, the 7 balanced armature (BA) design of the Lokahi ensures that the sound is true to what it was intended to be. Each driver is tuned to perform at its optimal frequency range, minimizing the total harmonic distortion while maximizing the audio resolution that BA drivers are famed for. This tuning approach allows the subbass and bass to be deep and impactful without hindering upon the mids, which is kept at a neutral position to emphasize a natural tone. The BA tweeters utilized for the trebles in the Lokahi are modified from the famed ‘Harman Curve’ survey, but goes further to extend the treble decay in order to better highlight harmonics and details, while increasing the perceived “airiness” in the music. In short, the accuracy of the Lokahi’s engineering means that its tuning is fit to amaze performers and listeners of every instrument and genre.
To best highlight the Lokahi’s impressive sound, it has been paired with an upgraded 4-core silver-plated OCC copper cable. Featuring the MMCX connection, the cable can be easily swapped to prolong the longevity of the IEM, as well as allow customization of your setup. The MMCX connectors chosen for the Lokahi have been tested to meet the highest quality standards available and will provide a secure fit for the lifespan of the IEM.
The Lokhai is handcrafted using industry standard medical-grade UV resin that is popular amongst the biggest IEM brands internationally. The quality resin provides both durability and comfort to the Lokahi, and its ergonomic shell design means you won’t even notice your IEM’s during long performing or listening sessions. Because every Lokahi unit is handcrafted, each shell design is unique and bespoke.

I wasn’t sure if the hype was real…I am confirming it is… I love these, and wasn’t sure if an all BA IEM could keep up with the bass I require. It does. I like these better than my 64 Audio U8. If you like good bass, good detail and good vocals, look at these. They punch higher than there price point.
Very well tuned crossover for the 7 balanced armatures per side. Substantial bass quantity and quality, rivaling that of dynamic drivers. Alot of depth to a transparent sound. Things sound far and near both side to side and front to back. I heard something in a track I thought came from the room I was in. Base tuning is excellent. Modifying the frequencies to your tastes could deliver an overall sound I'm sure rivals higher tier offerings. No distortion to be noticed at all in any case (within reason). A truly rewarding experience to listen the Audio Lokahi. I'm happy I waited. Used thru BTR5(v1)/custom 2.5mm cable(coaxial gold plated copper) and used DUNU EST 112/FiiO FH3 for reference.
Absolutely love the Audio Lokahi! Well worth the wait! Competes with much more expensive iems! Highly recommend!
Lokahi and KBear Believe are my most expensive IEM's, at $239 and $179 respectively.
I was very happy I did not cancel my pre-order due to the extreme delay in building/shipping the Lokahi. I love these; the bass is ample, with the right
fitting tips (these have slightly smaller nozzle opening; Comply t500 foams work superb for me, but the t400 were too big and fell off). Right out of the box, without burn in, I could very clearly hear cymbal strikes like I've never heard prior. If there is any downside, it would be the smallish sound stage. But oh boy, everything else I'm loving ! I used the Fiio BTR5 with KBear balanced 2.5mm cable to easily drive the Lokahi.
If you have pre-ordered , don't cancel. I waited about 8-9 weeks. Be patient. I think they were well worth the wait, and great value.
See the YouTube reviews from BGGAR and A Few Words With Paul. Wasabi before buying. I trust Paul’s review first. Good for some and maybe not for others.
I have never written a proper review before, so please don't judge me too hard. Tested the unit with iBasso DX160.
I was pleasantly surprised with this IEM. Very musical and non fatiguing sound despite it being full BA set (BA timbre and treble eating the "natural sound" away a bit but not bad). Also the bass is nice for BA. Very clean and just the right amount, only the slam is missing but that's understandable. Nice sub-bass, but there's a small dip around 55hz compared to 30hz which is noticeable.
Mids and treble are great to my ears. Pretty bright, but somehow non fatiguing. I have pretty young ears and I can hear over 17khz but still no problem listening them for many hours (in comparison DT1990 I can do 30 minutes max, Lokahi seems to have just as much airiness but the treble wont overwhelm the mids/bass.). Great separation and a ton of detail. Soundstage is average, though is feels that I'm hearing further behind than front. Fits all kind of music, even trebly metal music. Sometimes male voices sound a tiny bit more distant than others.
Build quality and fit is okay, you can tell it's hand built. Also I don't know if the vent does anything, with silicone tips I get very bad vacuum effect. Overall very nice set, goes straight to my top 3.
Thanks Linsoul for offering this and thanks BGGAR for informing me about this great set!
