It extends more in width than it does in depth, you get a pretty large and holographic sound, for both T2 and T2Pro, and it is not diffused, like it was with the old Ie8. As I wrote previously, there is a slight emphasis around the 10 kHz mark, with a slow rise before and a somewhat rapid decline after. There is no carrying case included, which is why their portability cannot be considered excellent. The mids is approached in textured and detailed manner with nice transparency in it, the lower mids might sound a bit thin for some but the upper mids sounds magnificent, it is sibilant at some few tracks. Contrary to what most people opine, the T2 does not lack in soundstage width. There is no carrying case included, which is why their portability cannot be considered excellent.
The T2 was better than the Noble X that I had owned already too. They are not lean down low, and the extension is there, they just don't jump out at you with massive amounts of volume and presence. There are not a lot of accessories, but everything one needs is there. The two halves fit together nicely and bely a cost above which this lies. Also included in the hinged box, which is covered with artificial leather, are a pair of foam tips and silicone tips in different sizes.
Bass is definitely not emphasized, but not too lacking though it straddles this border quite delicately. Sound Quality The title may give it away, but the soundstage and openness of the sound are the focal characteristics of Tin T2 and Tin T2 Pro. An earphone for almost every listener. They are comparable in terms of soundstage width, however. Strain relief at the carbon fibre coated straight jack is good, though stiff, and non-existent at the ear piece plugs; a small oversight in my opinion.
There's air and space between elements which help to maintain that clean aspect that the T2 does so well without becoming too thin or analytical. That engagement is a definite plus for the T2, and enough to call the mids quite good in my opinion. The cable helps a lot with the comfort too. What do you think of the T2 Pro with silicone tips? Bass: As stated, a good foundation is here, just not in enough bass for my tastes. So to sum up - those looking for a solid budget earphone that leans more toward neutrality but is still musical and emotive look no further. It was to be fleshed out and more powerful to satisfy those that found the regular T2 lacking low end, something I was excited to hear.
Accessory wise these are lacking a little, you get pre-installed Medium size foam tips in blue, along with regular silicone single flange tips S, M and L of both Narrow and Wide bore. I used my deficiencies of treble-loss to my benefit; searching for that sound, which was not there a moment before. After finding a frequency graph for the T2, I knew it was the one. There is more bass as my ear covers the inside vent , but I am simply not as comfortable wearing the T2 down as the Hex02. One that can be a bit difficult to define. With nieces, because even if the flat, rather cooler and neutral sound signature is not always one of my favorites, I have to say that I am still enthusiastic. Could use slight warmth but happy without it too.
I switched to a pair of small silicon tips that came in the box and I found myself more comfortable with them. It is bright, airy, detailed, with a mostly neutral bass and mid-range tune, all matched up with strong technical competence. Treble is not as detailed and rich, and it seems like roll off is faster. It is slightly forward as compared to the bass but is not a mid forward iem, i believe that the lower mids is still placed neutrally here but it is a bit too lean to give extreme justice for some male vocalist like Dave Grohl. But what does this mean in terms of sound behavior? A new installment in the Headphones in Pictures series is upon us! I'll explore the intricacies of each, and also compare them in the meanwhile, so you get a better view of how each sounds, and which may be a better fit for you.
Lows: First off I'll say that even with foam tips, these will not appeal to bass heads at all. Fault can be found in the prominence of sub-bass regions. Their low impedance and high sensitivity mean one can use any source to drive them. Imaging is really precise, providing more than just positional cues and instead providing precise positioning of instruments. I generally listen at very low volumes, so keep this in mind when reading my thoughts on how an earphone sounds.
This more in-depth review will go over the product as a whole, with a lot of back and forth between the original T2 and the T2 Pro. Those still won't cut it for Hip-Hop or downtempo, the bass being above neutral, but not by a huge margin. The midrange is maybe a tiny bit on the clinical side, but never do they sound wrong or artificial. . They steer clear of muddying up the midrange which is excellent, and kicks are backed up with good punch just not huge volume. I cut my teeth on Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Outlaws, The Who, Santana, Bob Marley, Eric Clapton, David Bowie, and Pink Floyd.
No other clue is given. I wouldn't recommend them to people with especially small ear canals. After waiting the two or so weeks for it to come from Hong Kong, I was treated with a pleasantly detailed and neutral sound signature that I heavily enjoyed. For a company to use Tin in its company name shows their gamble or they might have a reason for choosing otherwise which we might know soon. Layering is above average with the T2 showing a sense of depth to recordings that is generally reserved for more pricey offerings. The separation is where these really do well, the layering and air between instruments is excellent, the transient response also means they never become congested.
Usually in-ear headphones have either over-the-ear cables or more traditional, earbud-like downward-facing cable. Overall a slightly more reserved bass response that values detail and control over volume. In terms of technical ability, the T2 appear to come out on top on almost every aspect, with maybe imaging being up for contention. At the time of the T2's release, I was just getting into hi-fi; I was mainly concerned with over-the-ear headphones, digital audio converters, and amplifiers. Torres Thank you Linsoul Audio for letting us give our honest take towards the Tin Audio T2 pro. I wouldn't say the T2's mid-range is forward, but it has the unique ability to retain presence when you would expect it to fall behind.
