Tin T2 pro: brilliant, this is an absolute gem
We will start with the TL;DR, If a friend asked me to recommend an IEM, I would unreservedly say Tin audio T2 or (T2 pro (depending on their treble tastes)) and tell them, if they need more bass then the neutral bass these have, to try the bass mod. This is unless they specified they had bounds of money to spend and only want the best. Disclaimer! I find it much easier to talk about what is wrong with something, then what is right with it. So if I am brief with something and don't bother explaining, it probably means is good. A good example is this disclaimer where is am starting to get in-depth about my shortcomings as a reviewer. List of current and owned headphones/iems and more disclaimer at bottom of review. So, I have two Tin Audio T2 pros.... why did I not get a normal T2 too? I had already joined the drop for the T2 Pro, and one came up on the second hand market in as new cond., at the equivalent of $20usd incl shipping... For the drop price, these are brilliant, I cannot believe how good these are, mid range is really nice, but remember that the mid range includes VOCALS and speech includes frequencies up to the top of the mid treble range, and for this: I do wish I brought the non pro version, most fricatives (a type of consonant made by the friction of breath in a narrow opening, producing a turbulent air flow (s, th, f and etc.)) a little too much with the Pro. Looking at crinacles graph tool (https://crinacle.com/graphs/graphtool/) it is probably because of the 8k peak. please though, it is not unlistenable by any means. It is just bright and you do adjust with time. because of this peak and general rise and long extension in treble, the pro is very revealing; You can hear any and every nuance, which is great for clean recordings, but I have had to black list some songs because what on my other IEM (Massdrop Plus) is an excusable bit of sh*t mastering becomes very annoying, gritty and pronounced, to the point I find myself thinking is there something wrong with my equipment... but there is not, and it just is the song. Mids are generally great, not much to say here, remember the disclaimer? yep. but also with that remember the thing above about fricatives. Now, bass has a peculiar effect on people, and for the majority of people: bass quantity effects their perception of overall sound quality. I am not exempt from this, and if there is not enough bass, it doesn't really matter how good the rest of the system is, I am probably going to listen to something else. However bass quality is something i'm big on, and bloated, mid-bass centric is not what im after. Thankfully the T2 pro does not have bloated mid centric bass, I would nearly go as far to say it is light in this regard. But if go looking for quality "everyday person priced" product that isn't the embodiment of bass bloat and group delay muddying mid, you will be looking for a while (unless you first went to budgetaudio.com where you will find the . What the T2 pro does have is well controlled and extended bass. NOW TIME TO BOOOOST THE BAASSS!!!! This can be done permanently or as a temporary mod. all you need to do is block the port/vent/hole by the base of the tip. blutak, tape or if you are very skilled and want an excellent and clean finish and (semi...) PERMANENT mod, I used superglue... I was very careful to not let the glue get into the housing, so please be aware, if you are ham fisted and can't use precision tools (I say precision tool, but I used a tooth pick...) for glue application and/or you are not careful, you may get glue in the T2, which you probably don't want.... Right, so with the bass mod, bass is much (much) bigger, and seems (sounds) to be more or less centered around 80-120hz (looks like 50hz on budgetaudio.com) it does now ride on the back of the mids, making them over full and deep IMO others may disagree, but I like my mids clean leaning to fullish. so, I have one set of T2 Pros with bass mod, and one set with half bass mod, I recommend half bass mod (don't fully block the hole) as this still gives a big boost, its not as over bearing. with both mods, I find the bass to be less clean then the unmodded one, but I think it's a good trade off. but I am me, you are you. Build quallity: look at the picture, see how its made of machined(?) metal? yep. you know how metal durable metal is? yep. I bet you could stomp on these, and they would be fine. Cable is fine, I wouldn't bother upgrading. although the 3.5mm jack is quite a bit larger then I would like (It looks like something I would buy to make it easier for me to solder, it's like the size of an RCA jack_ it is weighty, so, if like me you run your cable under your top, this .50 caliber 3.5mm jack is redeemable. Packaging: it's nice, looks like a book, can be reused as a neat box to store things in, however, I do not buy things for their packaging, that would be weird, and if you do that, you should stop and buy things for the quality of the actual product. ;) More Disclaimer: I am also unaffiliated with any and every audio company and reviewer, I am not a "golden ear", I am an electrician (distribution) who loves music and quality playback equipment. I am a price/performance aficionado, I buy to the right and the left of the top of the bell curve, so I won't buy $2 IEMs from the shop down the road and I also won't buy anything in summit-fi. the quality just is not to the left and I am not rich and (as of writing this) do not get free stuff to review, although I would love to try the Audiosense T800 if anyone reading this has that power ;) What I have or have had.

it's gonna be hard to recommend anything more expensive...
these punch way over their weight class. period. anything up to around $200, that's what these are competing with, sound quality-wise. even the cables on this thing....ridiculous...

Impressive build quality for the price. Equivalent performance for the price
Given all the hype surrounding these IEM's I expected more. For roughly the same price (albeit not the same build quality), my Beyerdynamics earbuds have a much fuller sound, with noticeably more bass and mid-range. For $45 I can't complain much about my purchase especially considering how well built these are, however if you're after quality audio performance, look elsewhere.

Midtastic!
These are excellent IEMs if you love midrange.  They are great for both male and female vocals, strings, and classical music.   They’re also great for rock, as guitars sound very realistic, but you won’t hear much bass.  I really prefer the warmer, more analog sound of mids through dynamic drivers vs BAs.  The vibrations of stringed instruments seem palpable.  Highs are crisp and clear, but smooth, and not harsh (and I’m quite sensitive to treble). There is only trace sibilance, but I haven’t let them burn in much yet.  They’re not as extended as some other IEMs though.  Mid bass is full, and not at all boomy or too resonant, but they lack some sub bass volume.  The T2s are not for treble heads or bassheads.   These will not be my main go-to everyday IEMs, but they are very nice to have for certain types of music.   If you don’t like much sub bass, and love prominent, clear, full mids, these are probably ideal for you.   They actually are quite similar overall to the HD 58X headphones, but with a little less sub bass.  I like the cable a lot, and you can wear the T2s comfortably, both like earbuds, and like over-the-ear IEMs (you can easily switch the R/L sides if desired).  The T2s are an incredible deal, and easy to recommend.

Detachable cable. Braided cable. Skinny 3.5mm TRS (fits into your phone's output port even with a protective case. Lots of tips to try. Comply style, etc. Carry case/box, it's more than just for display before you tossing it. Neutral sound signature (a little sibilant until you optimize). All IEMs are not going to be ideal until you equalize for YOUR ears. These are not custom fit to your ear. So they will not sound the same for everyone. Anyone who says they lack bass or are too sibilant probably didn't fit them well to their ears (perfect seal) and likely don't equalize. These IEM's handle hard EQ pushes in bass, without distortion. The sibilant treble can be tamed easily in the 8khz~16khz ranges with an EQ. Mine sound wonderfully neutral after some minor tweaks in PowerAMP on my Galaxy S7 playing back FLAC lossless albums. Less than $50 shipped. I got mine early compared to the expected Drop date (Aug 6th).

Amazing sound, especially for the price!
Came here after watching many reviews and finally decided to get them. They are worth every single penny, they sound amazing and I can guarantee you will love the sound too. Get them as soon as they're up again. You really will not regret your purchase.

Sound is great with excellent build quality. Left/Right color is swapped for some reason and the foam tips were stained on one side.

Yes, they come with the blue foam tips attached, but probably should have a pair of silicone tips on them. The instruction booklet was stuck to the foam, and the ink stained part of the foam, as was the underside that was touching the surrounding black packaging. Not a big deal though, just cosmetic.

Shockingly good sound, an incredible value.
I ordered the T2 Pros and they are incredible for the price. The packaging is good quality and the accessories are good for this price range. In terms of sound quality, I am very impressed. I would rate these as good as my Vsonic GR-07 Bass IEMs which are twice the price and I think they are more comfortable than the GR-07s as well. These are an easy recommendation for anyone looking in the $50 range.
