DUNU Titan 1: Master of All Trades

No comments:

Intro



Before I begin, I would like to sincerely thank Vivian at DUNU for providing the review sample of the TITAN 1 in this review. Please note that I am neither affiliated with DUNU or any of its employees, nor am I being compensated for writing this review (aside from being provided the review sample). All opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own unless otherwise specified, and all pictures are taken and owned by me. YMMV.

Delicate, Unique, and Utmost – these are the three words that DUNU adopts as its philosophy for creating their IEMs. If you’ve been around the forums of Head-Fi for a while, you’ll probably know DUNU as a popular company based in Taiwan, manufacturing great bang-for-buck IEMs that rival that of top-end Western IEMs. This week, we’re taking a look at their latest release – the Titan 1. Early impressions and reviews state these are some of the best IEMs in their price range – how do they stack up? Find out after the break.

Thinksound Rain 2: Rainy Days

No comments:

Intro



TL;DR: Thinksound's Rain 2 provides a pretty solid package with a smooth sound signature that should appeal to most listeners, but I find them too warm to be pleasing to my ears.


Before I begin, I would like to sincerely thank Aaron Fournier at Thinksound for giving me the opportunity to write this review and for providing the Rain 2 in exchange for my honest opinion. Please note that I am neither affiliated with Thinksound or any of its staff, nor am I being compensated in any form (other than the provided review sample) by writing this review. All opinions expressed in this review are strictly my own unless otherwise specified, and all pictures are taken and owned by me. Before I go any further, please take all the opinions in this review with a grain of salt. Thanks!


Thinksound is a relatively new company which specializes in giving you great sound without making a huge impact on the environment. Their eco-friendly vision seems to be following in with the likes of House of Marley, but it seems clear to the members of Head-Fi that Thinksound is aiming to become much, much bigger than that.


Anyways, Thinksound has recently released another IEM into their growing catalogue, named the Rain 2. As you can tell from the name, it is an update to an older model which, upon the release of this one, will be discontinued. Judging from impressions form other Head-Fi’ers, the Rain 2 seems to be another hit with the audiophiles, with one making some pretty bold statements. This week, we’re taking a closer look at this wooden IEM and see if they live up to the hype.
