The Witch Pro has transparent purple resin 3D-printed shells. They are of the pseudo-custom type and have shrouded QDC-type 2-pin connectors. The shells look great and have nice build quality with rounded edges and no visible seam between the faceplates and body.
There’s a small vent just in front of the 2-pin sockets and a proper lip on the nozzle to hold eartips securely in place. In addition, the nozzles have a 2-bore design with a separate audio tube for each of the drivers.
The Witch Pro is a comfortable IEM that fills the ear concha and provides above-average noise isolation. The shells are fairly wide so they don’t disappear in your ears but they don’t protrude out too far either.
I would describe the With Pro’s sound signature as neutral-bright. Despite the fact that it looks like a basshead IEM on the graph, it’s actually reasonably balanced albeit slightly V-shaped.
The standout sonic characteristics of this IEM are its detail retrieval and high level of clarity. It’s not a basshead IEM but there’s a good amount of punchy bass with ample sub-bass rumble.
Vocals and midrange instruments are vibrant and energetic, with good articulation and detail.
The treble is somewhat forward, delivering above-average detail retrieval but, at the same time, creating a somewhat brighter tone that treble-sensitive people may find fatiguing. However, if you’re into micro-details, you’ll hear plenty of them here.
Soundstage and Techincal Performance
The Witch Pro creates a soundstage with plenty of width and ample depth. Instrument separation is good but not class-leading, as the heightened treble can mask some nuances during complex musical passages. The imaging is good and might be especially appealing for gamers who play first-person shooters since footsteps come through very clearly.
Overall, the Openaudio Witch Pro is a good IEM but one that doesn’t really stand out in any way. It has better detail retrieval than many of its similarly priced competitors but its overall resolution is average.
I think the Witch Pro is a competent IEM for the price but it will likely find it hard to gain traction among the sub $100 competition due to its somewhat unorthodox (old school) frequency curve. I look forward to seeing what Openaudio does next.
