About TinHifi

Based in Guangdong, China. TinHifi, formerly known as Tin Audio is an IEM maker with a strong experience in OEM/ODM. In 2017, they decided to lift the veil and become a real brand, with a small, but solid line-up. We previously reviewed the T2, T3, T4 from the same series, and we even had the chance to get our hands on the P1, the flagship of the brand.

But today, we’ll review a new addition to the T Series: the TinHifi T2 Plus. First, let’s see where it stands in the actual line-up.

The T Series

Slowly, but surely, the TinHifi catalog keeps growing. Sure, there’s still a long way to go if you compare them to KZ Acoustics, Fearless, or even FiiO, but it looks like the brand aims for quality, over quantity. As of today, the full line-up holds 6 models, here is a quick presentation.

T2

The TinHifi T2 is the entry-level IEM from the brand. Priced just under 50$, it’s got two dynamic drivers, an aluminum frame, removable cables with MMCX sockets, and rad reviews. Yes there is a lot of choice in this price range, but some stores already began to discount this model by $10, making it even more affordable.

What did we say?

Once properly driven, the Tin HiFi T2 sounded much more like a proper Chi-Fi IEM. Good extension, tight bass, and clean voices. But too much treble again. It’s a shame as you can clearly hear micro-details, hiding behind those 6-8kHz boosts.

T2 Pro

Available for just $10 more, the TinHifi T2 Pro looks exactly the same. Same aluminum frame, same MMCX socket, same dual-driver configuration. So what’s the difference apart from the pro in the name?

The T2 Pro gets a better cable and a slightly different tuning, more in tune with… professionals in search of a cost-saving IEM. We didn’t receive them yet, but thankfully, we received the T2 Plus, even better!

T3

The TinHifi T3 looks exactly the same as the T2 and T2 Pro. Yet, it’s what’s inside that matters. Instead of the dual dynamic driver, TinHifi combines a classic Knowles BA driver and a Dynamic Driver and creates another hybrid IEM.

Priced just under $70, it holds the same V-shaped sound signature found in the T2, but refined.

It’s a bit sad as apart from those annoying quirks, everything else is enjoyable. The dynamics are better, the sound stage cleaner – with a better depth effect – and there are a lot more micro-details than you’d expect from an IEM this cheap.

P1

The TinHifi P1 is vastly different from its smaller siblings. Instead of a dynamic, driver, the brand chose to implement a Planar transducer. Not an usual choice, even more in a sub-200$ price range, which makes it one of the cheapest chi-fi options for a planar IEM.

That said, the brand succeeded and to quote my self :

The TinHifi P1 is very good overall, excellent for the price. The sound is nice with overwhelming precision, impressive sound pressure and a sound signature that 90% of listeners will love, and 10% will tweak. The build quality is superb, with the shiny Stainless Steel shell and the copper braided cable. I love it.

T4

The TinHifi T4 is the best model of the T-Series. The brand made a crowdfunding campaign and just smashed its goal, by a large margin (+2029% !). Visually it looks like a T3+, thanks to the starred faceplate and a new mirror-like finish.

We reviewed it a few months ago, so here is an excerpt: 

If I didn’t want to believe the hype at first, I had no choice but to admit that TinHifi completely overturns the tide in their favor. The T4 sounds and feels like a major in-ear: a clean shape with sturdy construction and the right amount of sophistication, combined with one the best dynamic driver you can find in this price range.

T2 Plus

The TinHifi T2 Plus is the latest model of the brand. Sold at just $59, it seems like an alternative to the T2 Pro, but with an updated design, and driver. Enough to replace the T2 pro?
