KZ SA08 Pro is loaded with standard and high performance modes. Both of them have different sound signatures. Let’s talk about standard first. It is smooth and relaxing. In short, balanced sound signature. Highs are clear and clean. No harshness and sibilant at all. As for mids, both male and female vocals sound nice. Again, getting the smooth and relaxing treatment here. Bass is decent and has enough of amount. Not powerful deep bass though but still gets the job done. The soundstage is wide. Instruments placement separation is clear even in the complex scene.
As for performance mode, everything is slightly closer to your ears. The soundstage is narrower too. But you are getting warmer sound and lower latency in return. Therefore, bass is slightly stronger and deeper. In addition, the vocals are having warm touch too. So they sound more sweet and lovely in return.
