Tin Audio T2 is a dual driver IEM, one 10 mm woofer and one 6 mm tweeter. The presentation of the IEM is quite nice, the box feels and looks like a hard book cover. Very unique and fancy design. Inside we got the one pair of IEM, a very nicely braided hard to the touch, yet flexible white cable and 6 pairs of extra ear tips.
The bundled cable is very high quality, not sticky, feels really good. The cable ends with a 3.5 mm headphone audio jack, which is gold plated – always a good sign – and with a really high-quality carbon fiber look housing. The other side is a standard MMCX gold-plated termination. Swappable cables is always a good addition, not because you have to worry that the bundled cable will break anytime soon, but still.
Body and design
The IEM itself has a full metal body, which contains the 2 drivers. The MMCX connections are color coded. Sadly only the cable is labeled which is which side, and without any information, my guess is that the red will be the right side and blue is the left. Correct me if I’m wrong, but usually, that’s the case with IEMs.
The cable snaps easily, and hold tight. The Tin Audio T2 housing contains 2 vent holes, which gives plenty breathing during music listening, altho some say, if you cover one of the holes, you will gain even more bass. Since I’m not a bass-heavy guy did not bother with it. Soundstage is very good, only a very slight V shape but not much. Vocals are bright enough, the bass is enough for my taste, and mids are also tuned well. I was surprised, how an only 2 driver IEM can reproduce such good quality music. Usually foams totally block for me the bass and gives a more advanced highs. I was really surprised, that with the standard foam was the best configuration this time, and no ear tip change was necessary for me.
Anyway, the Tin Audio T2 is really a good deal, and for almost 50 dollars this is one of the very best entry, or mid-tier IEM in the market yet, not just in soundstage, but the build quality is also superb. Do I recommend it? Absolutely!
