Disclaimer: I receive this unit as a part of a giveaway in exchange for a review. The sub $100 market is really competitive right now, and I haven't heard any budget set as of late.
Light but sturdy metal alloy body. 2-pin cable is very thin and light w plastic parts.
- 1x pair of T2 foam tips
- 6x pairs of silicone tips (2 pairs of each size S, M, L)
- packaging doubles as storage box
Harman-neutral; very light bass boost and neutral mids and highs
Very lightly boosted, could barely tell. It's a lean and clean presentation. Separation and detail are good, passing my busy and layered J-PopMetal test (again, no idea how it compares to the sub $100 benchmarks nowadays). Impact is quite weak but still carries the DD weight, enough to satisfy me but not ideal. Not ideal for folks looking for bass. Pop and EDM doesn't sound the most engaging on these.
Dead neutral to my ears. Nothing stands out more than others, which make for a really balanced presentation. No hints of shout or sibilance, but many who's looking for that bite in the mids might find it boring. This, however, is how I prefer my mids, so no complaints there. Technically, it's the same deal as the lows good.
A tad relaxed overall but not quite dark. There's a bit of upper treble sparkle to balance things out. I'm a bit spoiled by EST highs, but the upper treble on the T2 DLC sounds a bit distorted. Not to any degree of harshness, it's just not super smooth.
This thing sounds just like the Olina, lol (not gonna comment on the technicals as I no longer have 'em). On its own, it's a great pick for a safe tuning w good technicals. However, like I said, this price range is very competitive lately. I can't comment on where it stands w its piers.
