Price & Availability:

The actual price for the Oriveti OD200 is a for $199.00 USD. More information’s can be found under the link below;


Package & Accessories:

The Oriveti OD200 came inside a pretty attractive looking back box with the Oriveti brand logo and on the top, which was wrapped with a cardboard sleeve in a similar British Racing green color like the monitors and has an illustration of the design concept and some brandings on the top.

Inside the box of the OD200 are the following contents/accessories;

  • 1 pair x Oriveti OD200 In-Ear Monitors
  • 1 x Detachable Cable with 2-Pin connectors and Modular headphone plug design
  • 1 x Leather Carrying Case

  • 3 pairs x Black Silicone Ear Tips (S/M/L)
  • 3 pairs x White Silicone Ear Tips (S/M/L)
  • 3 pairs x Foam Ear Tips (S/M/L)
  • 1 x Cleaning tool


Design & Build Quality:

The Oriveti OD200 is a single dynamic driver IEM that features a sleek and elegant design with a high-quality construction. The earphone body, which is composted of two parts (main body and faceplate) is made of CNC-milled aluminum alloy that gives it a solid and durable feel. The earphone has a matte finish that prevents fingerprints and scratches, and a beautiful British Racing Green color adds a touch of class and style.

The left faceplate sports the circular Oriveti logo, while the right earpiece has the Oriveti branding engraved on the top.

The OD200 is equipped with a 9.8mm diameter Be-Coated (Beryllium-Coated) Diaphragm Dynamic Driver. The OD200 also has a patent-pending Dedicated Airflow Distribution (DAD) design that optimizes the airflow within the earphone housing, improving the sound quality and performance of the dynamic driver.

The inner surface of the main body features the exchangeable nozzles (Black and Silver), which allow you to switch between two different sound signatures, providing versatility and customization options.

A fine woven mesh covers the front chamber bore, located close to the exchangeable nozzles.

On the top of the monitors, you’ll find a secure and tightly fitting 2-pin female connector interface. Close to the connectors are color indicators for left (blue) and right (red) channels, as well as a linear opening likely dedicated to housing the 9.8mm beryllium-coated diaphragm dynamic driver.

The OD200 comes with the same brand-new 8-core Silver Plated Copper wire detachable cable that was found with the High-End IEM OH700VB, which is a big plus point. This cable boasts remarkable lightness and virtually eliminates tangles. Each core consists of 24 wires with a diameter of 0.05mm, totaling in 192 wires. The cable has a soft TPU coating features a stylish two-tone color scheme, combining black and gun metal color for a sleek and polished look.

The 2-pin connectors feature a gunmetal-colored metal housing with a brushed finish, showing the aesthetic of all metal components on the cable. Each connector housing sports Left/Right markings and color indicators (Blue = L / Red = Right) on the rear, while the front displays the Oriveti logo.

The cable includes a metal chin slider and a stylish Y-splitter, both crafted from the same gunmetal-colored metal. The Y-splitter boasts a sleek, brushed finish with the Oriveti logo on its top surface.

The detachable cable has a modular headphone plug design that comes with 3 adapters. The package includes 1x 3.5mm Single Ended, 1x 2.5mm Balanced and 1x 4.4mm Balanced headphone plug adapter. The headphone jack features a straight-profiled metal housing with the Oriveti branding that is displayed on the top.

The OD200 exceed expectations for their price range with exceptional build quality. Both the monitors and the included cables feel built to last, which is impressive at this price point. Oriveti has managed to pack premium materials and meticulous attention to detail into a product that won’t break the bank.


Comfort & Isolation:

The earphone has a very ergonomic and comfortable shape that fits snugly in to my ears with a medium sized ear concha without causing any fatigue or discomfort, even after longer listening periods. The passive noise isolation on the other hand is on a sufficient level, when I do use it with stock silicone ear tips included inside the package.

The Sound:

The Oriveti OD200 unlocks versatile sound tailoring with interchangeable nozzle filters. The silver filter delivers a balanced and captivating presentation, featuring tight, controlled bass, a natural and effortless midrange, and crisp, airy treble. Swapping to the black filter unveils a more neutral and energetic signature with a brighter response. This adaptability allows the OD200 to excel across a wide range of music genres, faithfully reproducing detail, clarity, and realism in each. Its accurate soundstage and precise imaging further enhance the immersion, creating a spacious and engaging listening experience

My sound impressions for the Oriveti OD200 are based on listening after approximately 60 hours of burn-in, which aims to stabilize the Dynamic Driver and potentially refine the sound signature. I used the stock Black Silicon Ear Tips with the wide opening and 8-core Silver Plated Copper wire cable included in the package. My listening sources primarily consisted of the HiBy R6 Pro II (DAP), FiiO M11 Plus ESS (DAP), and iBasso DC-Elite (USB DAC/Amplifier).


More about the Sound Tuning Nozzles:

One of the main highlights of the Oriveti OD200 is its interchangeable nozzle system. This allows you to personalize the sound signature of the IEMs to your preferences. The two included nozzles “balanced” and “bass” offer subtle yet noticeable changes to the frequency response. The balanced nozzle provides a neutral and accurate sound with slightly but relative audible emphasis in the upper midrange and lower treble area, while the bass nozzle adds a touch of warmth and low-end boost. This level of customization makes the Oriveti OD200 a versatile option for listeners who enjoy tinkering with their sound. I personally prefer the bass nozzle that adds a better sense of body and Dynamics to the lows, and that smoothes out some of the brightness created in the upper register.



Bass / Midrange / Treble / Soundstage & Imaging:


The Oriveti OD200 shows a tight and controlled bass with good extension and impact when paired with the silver nozzle. The subbass doesn’t dominate the mix, it plays nice with the other frequencies and adds a sense of body, depth and space to the mix. The mid-bass region is more emphasized, particularly with the silver sound nozzle, delivering a punchy and dynamic presentation for a rhythmic and engaging listening experience. Notably, the bass doesn’t bleed into the midrange, instead complementing it with a warm and smooth texture. The black filter offers a more linear response, lacking the body and impact of the silver one. Listening to Daft Punk’s 2010 hit “Doin’ it Right” and Lorde’s 2013 anthem “Royals,” one can appreciate the sub-bass rumble and mid-bass slam of the Oriveti OD200. The bass is articulate and precise, maintaining detail and clarity throughout. However, the true highlight of the lows isn’t just their power; it’s their quality. The bass is highly textured, well-controlled, and articulate, with good separation between notes – impressive for an IEM at this price point. This allows the bass to stay out of the way of other frequencies and avoid muddying the mix.



The midrange of the Oriveti OD200 stands out with its effortless organic character, especially with the silver nozzle filter. It is balanced and natural, with a slight emphasis on the upper midrange. The lower midrange is rich and full, giving a realistic and emotional presentation of male vocals and instruments. The upper midrange on the other hand shows a great sense of clarity and resolution while listen to female vocals and instruments. However, the black (balanced filter) sounds a touch bright and energetic form my taste, so that I do prefer the smoother sonic signature of the silver filter (bass nozzle).   Norah Jones’ “Don’t Know Why” unveils an upper midrange that is smooth yet detailed. Adele’s voice in “My Little Love” resonates with emotional intensity yet maintains natural tonality. Edith Piaf’s iconic vocals are delivered with precision, showcasing the Oriveti OD200’s ability to handle complex vocal textures with ease. For male vocals, George Michael’s soul-stirring performance in “Don’t Let The Sun Go Down on Me”, David Bowie’s iconic tones in “Heroes”, and Elton John’s melodic brilliance in “Rocket Man” are rendered with warmth yet definition thanks to a lower midrange that balances body with clarity. The Oriveti OD200 also excels in reproducing instruments with accuracy and realism. Charly Antolini’s “Duwadjuwandadu” exemplifies instrument separation and timbre, as each note occupies its own space and has its own character.



The treble of the Oriveti OD200 is crisp and airy, with a good extension and sparkle. The treble is not harsh or sibilant, but rather smooth and refined when used with the silver filters. The treble adds a sense of openness and transparency to the sound, revealing subtle nuances and details.  The silver filter that tames the treble range, especially the lower treble are makes it a good match for the aggressive treble of Megadeth’s guitars. The cymbals are clear and well-defined, and the overall sound is energetic and engaging. The OD200’s treble is again well-suited to Metallica’s aggressive sound. The guitars are clear and cutting, and the cymbals are bright and energetic. The Oriveti OD200 also handles softer and more delicate genres with finesse. The treble adds a touch of brightness and liveliness to the sound, without compromising the naturalness and smoothness. Despite the slightly rolled-off in the upper treble area, the OD200 still manages to deliver plenty of detail and extension. Cymbals and other high-frequency instruments sound clear and natural.


Soundstage & Imaging:

The Oriveti OD200’s accurate imaging and positioning further enhance the immersive listening experience. Instruments and vocals are precisely placed within the soundstage, creating a sense of realism and coherence. This makes it easy to follow complex musical arrangements and pick out individual elements within the mix. For example, in Antonio Vivaldi’s “The Four Seasons”, the violin sections are clearly separated from the supporting strings and continuo, allowing you to appreciate the interplay between the instruments.



Oriveti OD200 ($199,00) versus Final Audio B2 ($299,00):

The Oriveti OD200 exhibits slightly more prominent bass, especially with the black nozzle, gaining further depth and body with the silver ones. Both maintain good control, avoiding midrange bleed. While Final Audio B2’s bass is tight and fast, it lacks the impact and rumble of the Oriveti OD200.

Switching to the Oriveti OD200 reveals a richer, textured, and organic midrange. The Final Audio B2, though clear and resolving, sounds drier and less vibrant in direct comparison. The OD200’s slightly elevated lower midrange translates to fuller vocals and instruments, particularly for male voices and guitars. The Final Audio B2’s neutrality ensures clarity and precision but can come across as thin and clinical.

Here’s where the Oriveti OD200 shines. Its smoother and controlled treble tuning delivers detailed yet relaxed high frequencies, avoiding fatigue and harshness even during extended listening sessions. While the Final Audio B2’s upper treble is slightly more pronounced, it introduces additional brightness that sounds a bit uncontrolled on poorly recorded tracks. The OD200’s smooth and authoritative presentation, with its fatigue-free treble, makes it my go-to choice for long listening sessions, by taming harsh cymbals without sacrificing detail.

While both the Oriveti OD200 and Final Audio B2 present a wide sonic landscape, the OD200 exhibits a greater degree of coherence and naturalness in its imaging. This translates to a more immersive and engaging listening experience, with precise positioning of elements within the soundstage. The Final Audio B2, however, might be perceived as prioritizing spaciousness and transparency, offering a broader yet potentially less cohesive sonic picture.



The Oriveti OD200 is a solid IEM for its price tag combining innovative design, premium build quality, customizable sound, and interchangeable headphone plugs. Its patent-pending Dedicated Airflow Distribution system optimizes airflow within the Beryllium-Coated Diaphragm Driver, resulting in enhanced clarity and dynamics. Two exchangeable nozzles further tailor the sound signature: the “Warm” nozzle delivers a smooth and captivating experience, while the “Neutral” nozzle unveils pristine detail and energetic response. Whether you are looking for a smooth and captivating sound or a neutral and energetic one, the OD200 will satisfy with its superb versatility and fidelity.
