So this is the Hippo Boom Plus. It’s meant for mobile devices, has 32 Ohms of impedance, and a very cheap price to compete with the Xiaomi’s very own RM50 pair of Piston earphones. Budget is all that matters here, but how does the Hippo Boom Plus compete?

The packaging is a tad funny, as it has some sort of triangular facet design, and is actually quite difficult to remove the earphones themselves from the packaging.

Once you open the packaging, remove the piece of plastic and it reveals the contents inside – a soft velvet pouch, som eartips, and the coil of cable.

I do admire how the packaging is done, it’s certainly not something cheap to do, as all of the pieces are revealed in what reminds me of a diamond-ish shape.

As for the included pouch however, it has the standard 70mm width and a 100mm height, just like any other included pouches. This is something that many budget earphones are missing, as I would really want to store my earphones at a convenient space.

Also, you get 4 sizes of eartips in total. Though it is not included, Hippo does recommend you to use the Hippo foam eartips for a better listening experience. I strongly believe that Hippo could have included a pair of those foam eartips just to attract more customers on buying their foam eartips. Marketing strategy 101?
