These are on sale from aliexpress for $35. I bought a pair 3 weeks ago for $41. They are incredible. I compared them to my ibasso it01’s I love the it01, it has more sub bass and a bit shinier treble, but this T2 far exceeds it in mid and treble definition. The bass is not bad at all. I haven’t tried sealing the inner ports with blu-tac as has been suggested for more bass. These are worth every penny.
If you have to pick between the T2 and IT01, regardless of the Price, which one would you go with?
I'm trying to decide between the two or if there are others that you would recommend please let me know.
I don't follow IEM so Don't know much or kept up to date with them. If I understand correctly the T2 is more on the Boring / accurate and the IT01 is the exciting / fun sounding correct?
Hi MidnighTempest, After using both for a while, i'd say it really depends on your primary use for them. I prefer the ibasso's for almost all applications because they fit really comfortably and deeper in my ear canal, but I don't take the out of the house, except for working outside etc. The T2's have a very straight fit with no curvature like most IEMs, so I usually switch the R and L and when I wear them and this seems to fit better. They are great lightweight and small IEMS, excellent for books and if you like to hear more mid and treble in music. IMO, I think they sound pretty exciting depending on what music your listening to. I've also plugged the port holes with blue tac and it's increased the bass dramatically, but does seal them and effect the pressure level in my ears, i've ended up taking off the tac because i don't like the pressure. Regardless, there's still almost no sub-bass. I digress. I'd try both of them if you can and then decide. Getting the T2's for $33-35 on aliexpress is a win-win, mine had a small dent in the ear grill, which didn't effect the sound but none the less I let the buyer know and I ended up getting my money refunded and got to keep my T2's. If you want to be really wow'd by your music, get the it01's, you can always eq the mids up a little. If you listen to audiobooks everyday like I do, get the T2's. Because theses are such different in regards to sound signature it's ideal to own both.
