From my experience, this is the only choice for a sub-$50 U / V shaped IEM. Recently bought KZ ZS7, and found them sounding stuffy and very rolled off highs, with some very tinny-esque (I guess due to BA) detail resolution in the highs (like tinkling of bells), but a greatly over-represented low end and mud in the middle. Not these. Bass really tight, fast decay. I bumped sub-40hz by 1-2 db and there is more than enough bass quantity here, and I like bass. Mids, recessed but lovely. Highs have a natural feel, cymbals sound so good. I listen to a lot of new instrumental prog ala Scale the Summit, Angel Vivaldi, Plini, Animals as Leaders, etc. and these are the first IEMs that do rock sound justice. Tonality, clarity, low-end, warmth, detail and sparkle are all there. Soundstage feels small to me like most budget IEMs I've tried, but the detail and air prevent it from feeling stuffy. Other pros, stock cable seems nice, they're smaller with smaller nozzles than KZ products so they fit my ears much better, no discomfort. I switched to medium Symbio W tips and comfort is perfect, I forget they're there. I haven't heard BGVP DMGs but I can imagine why a previous reviewer preferred these over them. If you listen to a lot of rock, these should be near top of the list for a budget daily driver. Packaging, look and feel, build quality are all solid. For $40 you can't go wrong. I'm sure more money can get much better but FAWTY!

Wow, I get to write the first review. How is that possible!? LOLS
In Summary, I like the Galaxy T2 a lot, a hell of a whole lot. It was all a delicious sonic treat, without any weirdness in any of it. All of this for less than 50 USD. Imagine that.
The T2 were attractively packaged with a set of six silicone ear tips , the detachable cable, a booklet and a white carry pouch.
The ear tips come in small medium and large to fit different ear sizes, One set of tips feature a large bore and the other set have a small bore. I understand that the large bore allow more treble to come through and the small bore creates a warmer sound. So you can pick the tuning that you prefer.
The T2 galaxy came pre-installed with medium sized large bore tips. I listened with these for a day or so and it became apparent that I was not getting a good seal in my ears. I swapped out for the large sized large bore ear tips which improved the sound considerably.
The Galaxy T2 are very comfortable in my large size ears. I have not experienced any pain or discomfort. With the large ear tips, I do not find myself fiddling with the fit, readjusting, or even just pushing them back in my ear, no matter how much I move or shake my head. The provided cable loops over the top my ear and co-exists with my glasses with any issues. But, I'm not in love with the original cable. It's a pretty good cable, most people will be perfectly happy with it. To me it seems maybe a bit "delicate". I did go and get an after market cable (, which was heftier and felt more durable. It has eight cores, braided and silver plated, blah, blah, blah The after market cable may have even helped improve the sound as well, but who knows, its probably just confirmation bias.
Fit is a personal thing, your mileage WILL vary.
A word on build quality. It is a plastic body, smooth, shiny finish with no rough spots. No bits bouncing around inside. Didn't open them up to look inside. I can imagine that if you just put unprotected them in your pocket, you could snap off the cable at the connector. Its about what you could imagine for the price range.
The sound from the T2 Galaxy is really, really good. There is plenty of bass, lots of of low end extension and detail. It's definitely not a one note thump, thump kind of thing. I did not find the bass bleeding into the mids, Male and female vocals sound especially realistic. I am just listening to the music without thinking "that voice sounds a bit weird". In the same way, the treble is equally well presented. I don't hear any peaks or valleys that make some instruments sound strange. BTW, I have 64 YO ears. I hardly ever hear what people call piercing or treble sibilance. That being said, I do have headphones, where i hear a bit more sparkle, shine or shimmer or whatever you might call it.
Sound stage, no kidding, its between my ears, lols Separation, its all good. Instruments don't run together, You can hear all those little sound bits that the electronic music guys toss in to add "texture" to their tracks. Detail, lots and lots.... as in I can hear singers breath in, I can hear fingers moving on guitar strings.
Sources When used with: - Google Pixel 2 XL + USB-C to 3.5 MM adapter, local FLAC files, Google Now streaming, YouTube music videos and talk videos, movies - Lenovo Tab 4 Plus, local FLAC files, Google Now streaming, YouTube music videos and talk videos, movies in this use case there's a bit less detail in the highs, and and maybe the highs are kind of harsh - When I add a Dragonfly v1.2 to the above, bass gains a bit more authority or weight, more detail in the mids and highs, vocals and highs get smoother - On my PC, with Foobar2k, Gustard X12 Dac/Gustard H10 Amp, bass get really, really, really solid, everything gets more detailed, voices are more smoothly presented, its pretty amazing that I can really turn up the volume to a "dangerous" level and the T2 Galaxy are not distorting. - it seems to me the better the gear, the better the Galaxy T2 sounds
What I've listened to - I mostly listen to 60s classic pop, modern Kpop, 60s-70s Rock, female vocalists and lots of blues guitar. - No problems with my torture track, Mike Oldfield, Tubular Bells, Part 1, Universal Japan 2011 SACD release
I'm thinking about buying few more pairs. One for the bedroom listening setup. One to keep as spare and one to gift out.

Really good sound for the price that they’re at. I have the Tin Audio T2 Pro’s also, and so far I prefer the Galaxy by far in terms of clarity and balance. They are definitely a bit warm, but do not have the painfully sharp sibilance felt in the T2 Pro’s. Took a bit of experimenting with the included tips and eventually other brands but once you get a nice solid seal these sound really good and isolate well.

jakob.sDid you mean “a bit BRIGHT .. do not have sibilance ..” instead of “a bit WARM”?

I purchased these because I had a chance to check out the TFZ King Pro which I was very impressed with. First, I am just a novice. I love music, I use these with a Pioneer XDP-30R DAP. I broke these in for 15 hours before I really sat down and used them. I did replace the cable with a TRN 8 core balanced cable. Honestly on all of my IEM's I notice a difference by replacing the stock cable. I listen to a variety of music and with these I ran through some of the following to check the performance: Garbage, Rush, Third Eye Blind, Poe, Natalie Merchant, Veela, Pink Floyd, Zack Brown, Patrick O'Hearn. This gives me a wide range of music to test he performance. To me very well balanced, Great bass (Which I like). I compared these to BGVP DMG which I Massdropped around the same time. At first I liked the BGVP DMG better. But after swapping out cables on both pairs I prefer the TFZ Galaxy T2's better. For the money this is a great buy.

bonehammerDid you use the TRN 8 core cable with the TFZ T2? Is it suitable? If you do, can you please tell me what type of plug did you use?
Jan 30, 2020
Draemonsiyes I did and used a “balanced” plug. Very pleased with it.

Sounds amazing. Pretty as fuck. Love how the color makes it look almost like a gemstone. But you know what I hate? Submitting myself to some form of pseudo-electric shock therapy each and every time I put these on. My $5 earphones I bought when my last pair broke don't have grounding issues. I love their fit and sound, but hate having to suffer from static shock on my ears everytime the wires touch my coat wrong.
Apr 3, 2019
Moth630I had the same issue with the Kanas Pro's, except the static electricity damaged the drivers as well. The sound became veiled with a soft grain. Possibly an issue with poor shielding in the cable. Ended up replacing them and am searching for a more robust cable before taking them out of the house again.

Replying wayyyy late, but recently got new cables for it after using my portapros after the cables broke, and theres no eletric shock, seems like it was a cable issue

“Could do worse for $40”; lifeless treble, rubber cable, non-standard sockets
The SQ does “okay” on most mainstream ‘pop’ music and it’s very easy to “find the beat” due to bass impact, sometimes to detriment of balancing the overall sound. However, the treble is very flat without shimmer or adequate extension*. The bass impact is quite respectable; however, bass blooms into the mids and has an aggressive bite that lacks smoothness and texture**. It is disheartening to listen to Björk’s “Family” - so lifeless with these IEMs. This alone would get 4/5 (-1 star) considering the cost. However, that may be generous as there are better sounding “Chi-Fi” IEMs in this range - even the $7.99 MH755 has much better treble, and that isn't saying too much! (MH755 bass layout is also smoother, although T2 has more fulfilling impact.) However, only 2/5 (-2 more stars) because 1) very cheap rubber-coated cable that tears easily; the cable itself contains only a few fine wire stands; and, 2) the non-standard outward socket does does not fit “normal” recessed 2-pin cable. This makes it hard to find an inexpensive “upgrade” cable on Ali (or similar site). Lack of using standards: fail. The ‘look’ itself is “okay”, except the default black cable is not flattering. I have a new silver/gold cable that would look awesome with the silver/green, except it does not fit due to the non-standard socket design. Fit is “okay” although far from one of the better designs: the nozzles are tiny and do not extend far, which might suit people with smaller ears. *I roll many tips: Type E, Spinfit, Spiral Dots + foam, RHA, eg. and nothing fixed the core issue; these drivers/tuning just fall flat. Could do worse .. can also do a good bit better. **I primarily compare to the Hyla TE5B; the T2 is a fraction of the price.

Excellent value IEMs
I've been looking around for a pair of relatively inexpensive IEMs for a while now to be my daily driver on the go. I was prepared to spend up to $200 and I patiently waited for a pair of IEMs to show up in my price range with a higher than 4.3 star rating. To my surprise, the first pair on here I find is a $40 pair of headphones. Frankly, I couldn't be happier with the purchase. I've read reviews that compare these to free headphones that come with phones, but I would have to say that anyone who says this either got a defective pair, or they haven't listened to free headphones in a while; because these sound way better than cheap/free headphones. The sound is a bit bass heavy which can be hit or miss with people, the mids are clear, and the highs aren't super pronounced, but they're there and not in a way that makes them fatiguing. For the money, I think they sound fantastic, and to put this into perspective my main pair of headphones at home is the HD 6XX. If you're wondering if you should buy this at $40 I say you should go for it because these are a great value

Worth the price
I have no issues with the sound quality on these for what I paid, in fact I would have been impressed if they cost more. Only gripe is the ear tips, when you're still they seal and sound great, but dislodge pretty easily when walking etc.

Make sure you get a good seal w/eartips
The TFZ Galaxy T2 I've found that its really important to find the right tips with the TFZ Galaxy T2. That's true of any IEM, but the T2 is really finicky, depending on your ear. Me? I usually go with foam as it does the isolation job well, but I tried like four or five different brands and then some silicone tips and none were getting the job done, these cans still sounded like crap. Then I tried a pair of SpinFit cp155 (out of desperation) and behold! Bass! You would probably go with the next size down, but the 155s work ($11). These 40-buck cans now sound amazing, when you get the right seal, and oh yeah, lose the stock rubber cable. Bring out your highs and mids, which the T2 reproduces well, with a good 8-core silver-clad copper cable on amazon for $14. That brings the price for the Galaxy to $65 usd after the mods. Have to take off a star but what do ya want for forty bucks? They still sound better than most sub-$100 iems (and higher) on the market. I'd put the Galaxy T2 on a par with the Tin Hifi T3 (another over-achiever which I love) as far as the sound, comfort, and build quality. Recommended. SpinFit Cable
