What's in the box:
Writing this review after around a month of buying these. When came across these FiiO branded Dunu Titans, was excited to try how they sound given the open design.
Build - 8/10
The earphones are well built, with a tangle free sturdy cable and angled connector. The drivers are made of heavy metal. While unboxing them at my desk, I accidentally dropped one of the drivers on my phone screen and believe me, the tempered glass on my phone screen is broken. The drivers are really heavy.
Comfort - 7.5/10
The size of the drivers is relatively big for an IEM to be worn straight and not over the ears. Due to the size of the housing (dont forget it has a 13mm driver) it is not among the most comfortable IEMs I have used. Sound isolation is average. Using double flanges should fix the isolation issue to a large extent though.
Accessories - 7.5/10
The IEM comes with many ear tips but neither of them are double/triple flange or foam tips.FiiO should have included foam/double flanges which would have greatly helped in the noise isolation issue. A nice hard carry case is supplied along with.
Now the thing that matters the most, the sound...I have a large collection of IEMs, both driven by BAs, dynamic drivers and hybrids. But these giant 13mm's are different. The best way I can describe them is - they are configurable power houses. They have raw power to produce great detail across the audio spectrum, but they need to be EQed. They are a tad too harsh out of the box and fatiguing. But the good thing is that they respond very well to EQ. That makes these IEMs versatile and configurable according to taste / genre. These are very bright sounding and the highs can be tamed only with some serious EQing. All in all, they have power to reproduce details from the lowest of the lows to extreme highs and they demand you to create your own sound signature. With proper eartips and seal the soundstage is wide and spacious with clear instrument separation....
overall the earphone is good. There is some tight bass. The mids are good enough. But for me, the high frequency is killing me. The 's' sound and some high frequency sounds fees like it is piercing my ears.
But if the volume is low there is no problem.
The comfort is good enough. It is not a heavy huge one.
