I am gonna have to agree with a few other people, I purchased the Pros and it seems that there is a definite boost in the treble. All frequencies are still extremely clean and crisp, all detail seems to be translating well, but high parts such as cymbal crashes spike a bit and get annoying after a while.
These have started shipping now, 21 days before the estimated date. Yay!
is there still a problem with loose mmcx connectors on the pro?
Can someone suggest me to choose between the normal version or the PRO version? Is the PRO model worth it?
I know these are a lot cheaper but how do these compare to the BGVP DMG's?
I now can highly recommend the T2 (not Pro version) after I getting them on Black Friday. I love them!! I paired them with my Hifiman Megamini listening to FLAC files. A little harsh in the beginning but on only a few songs. I believe in burn in so I let them play a bit and now the sibilance is less to almost gone now in those songs. That or I am going deaf listening to them. Changing tips did little to the sound but helped the fit for me. I have spent more money on Chinese takeout. If you have come this far in reading the Discussions, just get them you cheap fu*ker!

Ship date was supposed to be 01/04/2018. They shipped on 11/30/18 instead lol. Thanks massdrop.
Soon I’ll discover if going with the Pro is the right choice.

Thought the same thing
I just bought these in the AliExpress 11.11 sale. They were $27.72 shipped to Canada. So this is an okay price, but not the best price you can get.
These or discounted 1more Triple Drivers?
Thechansen
t2 has less bass, 1more 3 has has very loose bass and more bass than t2.
I need triple flange tips ... What diameter tips would fit ?
I’ve been using these for a little over a week now. Mids and highs are definitely the focus here. I’m having a real problem with getting a good fit. Using Comply T500, supplied blue tips and an unbranded pair of foam tips. All medium size and none of them seem to set right. Feels like I have to get them just right in my ears and don’t move. Any advice? Maybe a small tip as opposed to a medium?
oldnoob
switch the buds. The little connect point will face forward and you can get a better fit. So left and right cable stay but switch the buds
BGGAR
Thanks for the suggestion. I really want these to work for me so I can have a good honest real world opinion. This is my first iem with multiple drivers.
one of the best IEMs round 100$ ,dont buy pro edition ,more expensive and you will hate them for there sibilant high and repair this mmcx cheap cable

Would a Yinyoo 8 Core 3.5mm Cable With MMCX be an improvement?
KBDUser
I think so ,why not
Keep in mind that you can purchase the Tin Audio T2 at $36 at basically anytime through AudioBudget's referral code.
Cheaper on aliexpress with faster shipping ...

Unless your package gets stuck in chicago customs like mine did that i ordered in freakin JULY!
"Upgrade to the T2 Po", nice
anyone else find these to be very harsh ? on a lot of songs i cant put the volume up past about 60/100... i tried to tape the vents but i didnt notice any difference at all.. tried foam tips and different EQs but some songs are just arnt listenable at higher volumes.. aside from that they are very nice and on some songs they sound amazing
DriftwoodClyde
Did you get the original or the Pro? The Pro is hot garbage imo ;)
crabdog
got the original.. after a few days ive gotten sort of used to it.. but some songs is still a bit harsh.. sounds really good with bass boost on topping nx4 dac amp.. any other IEMs with slightly warmer signature little bit more bass but with the same clear mids and sparkling highs?
Anyone know how to remove the MMCX cable after attaching them to the earphones? I can't pry them off for the life of me and I've looked up a few ways and none of them so far work.
levv
Don’t pull on the cable. Hold both the IEM & cable as close as possible to the connection point. It may just be really tight, but should loosen up a little over time. Use the tips of your thumb and finger to push while pinching the cable between your fingers.
rantng
Thanks a lot! I pulled from the base of the ear phones and hard end of the MMCX cable and it came right off! Which is odd, because I'm pretty sure I did the same thing the first time... I guess it just needed time like you said.
Have these shipped? Can’t wait to give them a try.
I have found that they pair well with Comply Tsx-400 tips.

I prefer foam tips and have tried the blue foams that came with these and T500's. Still struggle to get a comfortable fit. Tried the spinfits that I have and they’re a definite no go. I think I my have some T400 tips around. I buy medium tips but may give smalls a go. Overall I'm finding these a bit 'bright' and hard to fit.
Agree on the spinfits
I'm not going to review them, but I do have a couple comments. The left side of the cable worked for maybe a few minutes after I took them out of the box, then the audio would come and go if I wiggled the cable or twisted the MMCX connector, then I stopped hearing audio at all out of the left side. I confirmed it was the cable as both the left and right ear phones worked when attached to the right side of the cable. It was a bummer, but not exactly unexpected considering how many other reports of cable problems there have been.
My other comment is more of a personal fit preference and not a fault with the product, but it might be instructional for others looking to purchase these. My daily drivers are Shure SE425 which are a very different physical design than the T2. I find the SE's very comfortable and they fit in my ears very securely because the "sound nozzle" that the soft tips attach to is very narrow which allows me to push the tips into my ear canal where they create a good seal and stay secure. The nozzles on the T2's are much larger diameter and don't fit in my ear canal with any of the provided tips. I was able to get a decent seal with the blue foam and the medium rubber tips, but the fit was not at all secure since the tip was basically just pressed up against the outside of my ear canal and there wasn't much ear out there for the tips to grip onto. They would fall right out if I moved my head much.
For the short period of time that I was getting stereo sound out of them, I thought they sounded good, with much better bass than my SE425's. I just don't think I could make the T2's work from a fit perspective in my particular ears. I contacted Massdrop support about the bad cable and got a quick response saying that they don't have individual parts to send me a replacement cable, but they offered to send me a whole new set or give me a full refund, so that was a great customer experience. I went with the refund and Massdrop sent me a prepaid return label. So really, other than this particular product not being what I was looking for, this was the best possible experience I could've hoped for in ordering earphones online. Thank you Massdrop!
Can these be worn wire down and not around ear?
yourmom.com
Yes, they can be worn either way. If wearing wire-down, they probably fit best with the buds reversed (blue on right side, red on left).
I still haven't received mine from the last time they dropped. I've only had positive experiences with Massdrop in the past, but this is a little disappointing. Still looking forward to them finally coming in though.
arsnyder
Well, not to downplay your issue, but after Massdrop has shipped the item, it's not their fault if it's late. I ordered my pair on the start of September. It shipped right on time, on the 3rd of October, as stated. So Massdrop did right by me. However, I still haven't received my pair because a) DHL took their sweet time in Germany and b) the package got stuck in Greece's awful customs office. I'll probably have them tomorrow though. Still, Massdrop isn't to blame for any of this, I knew I might have had issues with customs at some point. At least I didn't get those with my HD 58x.
I’m just gonna send it
Interesting these are up so soon after the new version drop ends. Glad i ordered the others.

What's the difference?
Traflo
The T2 pro is mostly the same, the cable is apparently better and has less QC issues. The biggest change is in the treble from everything i have seen its been pushed a little more forward and the detail and quality o the treble is noticeably better. I have seen one person claim the bass on the older model is better but from everyone else it seems to be about the same, plus you can just mod the vents too increase bass. The mids also seem to not have changed. So pretty much Better cable and better treble.
I've heard a bunch of IEMs in this price range, from KZ to TRN. The Tin T2s are still my favorite. OK, I do prefer the new T2 Pro, BUT I think some people might prefer the originals. Here's why:
The T2 Pro has more treble, and with silicone tips I think it's overly sibilant. The sibilance is solved with foam tips, but if you don't like foam tips (they need replacing more often), I think the T2 Pro is not a good option. I also think the silicone tips give a better seal and so the original T2s feel bassier than my T2 Pro. Not a big difference in the bass, but noticeable.

Also, I think the T2's "lack of bass" is pretty overstated. The bass isn't as emphasized as on similar headphones in this price (KZ, TRN, Final), BUT it's still pretty solid bass. Headphones like Grado SR80, AKG K1000, and even Sennheiser HD600s are legit light on bass. The T2 has more bass than all of them. They're just not bass cannons like some other cheap IEMs.

Has anyone found what kind of tips these come with to buy more? They're so soft, but the stock tips were a little big for me.

You can buy comply t400 for replacement
Thisgameissoreal
Generic comply-like foam tips work like a charm, unlike most silicon tips which simply don't work well with the T2, at least for me. I tend to prefer silicon, since it's easy to plug in and out, but for the T2 foam tips are a MUST, at least for me.
wand placement . Well I could of order a pizza from best buy as it would of been delivered faster. No big deal.
The Tin2 was ordered to be use as beaters. I'm hard on things. Not really I got up and walked away leaving behind my Westone um5.
Order in LZ 3a iem that was flagship model few years ago. https://www.audiophileon.com/news/lz-a3-review-iem
Need some OTG iem as I wasn't going to use Grado PS 500 cans.
Pull off the cable from LZ 3a to replace the Tin2 cable. It did open up the sound with a little mellow down the top end a tat, on female vocals ie. Rick Lee Jones Easy Money
Added Comply foam tips. Again I really like those instead of the blue tips. I think it was Comply had the ear wax that when over the nozzle barrow like a speaker grill.
New from box listen bass was light. Did tape mod. Even volume level on 2. Just to much pressure on ear drum, with bass heavy music. Useing FX eq. Bring the low end down a few dB.
LZ a3 offers so much more of everything. ( see review above) They better as they was the flagship in 2016 Tin2 is $39 US LZ a3 was $79 US two years ago. Because LZ came out with new flagship models. I'm in Canada can find LZ a3 new for $109 cdn. Beware you might need new tips, as stock one's way to small.
These are great. I don't think they can be beat for the price. I like a bit of bass in my music and these offered way more than I expected. The highs are high, not muffled and controllable. The vocals are also great. The stock tips don't fit me though so I had to get third party tips. The quality is great though. Note that I came from the Jaybird X2s (I'm still new to the world of audiophile headphones) and the bass on these are definitely not as punchy, although they are a lot clearer unlike the X2s, and the mids and highs are really clear.
EDIT: The cable leaves a bit to be desired. The right ear sometimes disconnect randomly, so I had to get some aftermarket cables to fix it. Although it adds about $20 to the cost it's still worth it in my opinion.
