It comes in a matte black box with the front showing the Yincrow brand name and the model name at the bottom right. At the back, it shows a diagram depicting the components of the earbud. Inside the box, there is the earbud, a brown pouch, foams, shirt clip and an instruction manual.

The earbud shell is made up of plastic. It is light weight and there is a matte black finish to the shell. There are L & R markings on the left and right shells respectively. On each shell, there are labels “YINCROW” & “X6” in white colour.
Cable Build & Design
The earbud has non-detachable cable. The cable has a smooth black feel to it. There is no chin slider and the y-splitter has a circular aluminium housing with a glossy surface. It has a 45 degree 3.5mm gold plated right angled jack with strain relief.
The Yincrow X6 extends deeply in the sub-bass department with an average rumble. I find the quantity to be above average. Each bass note is being presented with authority and bass texture is rendered smoothly. The mid-bass has a nice slam to it and this helps to improve the overall dynamics of it. The bass is articulate with great extension and has a good amount of quantity. I feel the bass is the star of the show.
The midrange on the Yincrow X6 is quite clean and detailed. The lower mids has enough body and I feel it is sufficient. The upper mids is not very forward. It makes the overall midrange rather laidback. Despite the lack of energy, the midrange is still rather soothing to listen to. It is slightly congested but it is still rather controlled. Resolution is decent with an average layering.
The treble is being extended to a good extent with no sibilance and harshness. There is a good amount of air at the top end. However, there is no sparkle. It presentation is quite laidback and smooth with little aggression. Overall, its laidback nature is non-fatiguing for a long listening session. The definition is quite average..
The Yincrow X6 has a decent width and average depth in the soundstage. The expansion is just nice to prevent congestion of the track. The depth is not very close and there is space. Vocals and instruments positioning is decent.
