Overall, the Xiaomi Redmi K40 Pro + performed decently in playback and was notably able as a recording device, especially at this price point. In playback, it had a good volume performance at both ends of the spectrum, good wideness in landscape mode, and correct bass precision despite the lack of bass and low-end, which was one thing holding it back overall as a playback device. The lack of high-end extension was also an issue. The tonal balance was inconsistent. As a recording device, the K40 Pro + really shined. Other than compression that impaired dynamics in the high SPL scenario, the K40 Pro+ turned in an excellent score in timbre and above-average scores in other attributes.
