TinAudio T200

ø10mm + ø8mm Dynamic Drivers

$10~$15
1.0/5.0

Being very impressed by the Tin Audio T515, which I use very often, I also managed to get the cheaper T200 for appraisal. Unfortunately, there isn't much to say about these particular earphones... Dark and distorted sound quality in a seemingly premium housings, and a pathetic L-shaped plug that causes the sound to distort when touched even slightly. Don't waste your time on these earphones, they are a disgrace to the brand that delivered the extremely high-quality T515.

Pros

  • Great bass response and depth.
  • The bundle has everything you need to use the earphones, and store them when you're traveling.

Cons

  • Aweful highs. There's no brightness to the sound and not even the most basic detail.
  • The L-shaped plug may look like it's great, but it's actually very noise when you move it around.
  • The design is rather bland and generic.
  • These earphones are probably impossible to get nowadays.

Comfort & Fit

The simplistic design of these earphones doesn't provide any kind of ergonomics, and they might fall out if you use the wrong tips. However, they are quite light and have enough ear tips to pick from.

Lows / Bass

The lows are pretty deep but not quick enough. Kicks are rather thick and muddy, and except being deep they don't provide any warmth or impact to the overall sound.

Mids / Vocals

Extremely dark and discolored, these muddy mids won't be fit for any music genre at all. I wouldn't even thought of buying these earphones if I knew that fact.

Highs / Treble

Dark and totally blanketed. These highs are much bellow average, there are $1 earphones that manage to deliver better highs than these.
