Tin HiFi T1 Plus Beryllium-Coated Driver HiFi in-Ear Earphone
This is already the third TinHiFi product I have evaluated. The first two products performed very well, but the model I evaluated this time is a T1 Plus product. In fact, I was reluctant at first. I received the engineering machine of this product about two months ago and received it twice, but the sound performance was not ideal.
Moreover, the engineering machine given to me at that time did not actually have a model name, and it was not clear what unit was used. It was completely in the case of blind listening. I felt that the sound of the engineering machine did make me feel that it was not suitable for one. The 199RMB product went on sale, and it was only recently that I received the mass production version of TinHiFi T1 Plus from the TinHiFi, which gave me a big change in the sound of this product.
| 01. Packaging and accessories
Previously, the packaging of TinHiFi products was more “luxury”, but this time it looked a little rudimentary on TinHiFi T1 Plus. It is said that the cost of packaging is reduced because the cost of this product itself is a bit too high, and it is a last resort.
Of course, this pure white minimalist design box is about the same level as MoonDrop SSR in terms of size and material. There is not much information on the front and back of the box, and there is no separate cover. It is very simple. Open the box. Later, you can see that the earphones is placed in a sponge sandwich.
The TinHiFi T1 Plus accessories do seem a bit “simple”. This time I didn’t even have a storage bag. This is indeed beyond my expectations. After all, MoonDrop is equipped with a storage bag, but the T1 Plus of the same price does not. There are a total of six pairs of earmuffs, two sizes and sizes, a four-strand silver-plated wire, and no other accessories.
| 02. Appearance and workmanship
According to the current TinHiFi product line, TinHiFi T1 Plus seems to be the lowest-positioned and entry-level product. Therefore, the earphone cavity does not use a metal cavity like other products, but a plastic cavity. This time, the cavity design of TinHiFi T1 Plus is indeed very “simple”, so simple that there is almost no recognition.
TinHiFi T1 Plus adopts a multi-color design, which provides white, pink, black and green respectively. Except for black, the back panel is opaque and the cavity is transparent. The prototype tested this time is the white model I think is the most attractive. The earphone cavity itself is a transparent shell without any color, and the unit inside is clearly visible.
The plastic cavity earphone is difficult to make a very exquisite workmanship. The texture of the TinHiFi T1 Plus does seem to be full of “plastic feel”. The shape of the earphones is still custom-made, but it is not a public model but TinHiFi’s own mold. Compared with the shell of a custom-made public model, the volume of T1 Plus is about a circle smaller.
There is no major problem in workmanship. The female socket uses a protruding 2Pin, and the compatibility of the wire may not be as good as the flat mouth, but it is more stable. The cavity is composed of two parts, and there is no obvious glue trace on the joint part of the gap. The product model is printed on the side of the cavity, and the main body of the earphone unit can be clearly seen through the cavity.
The silver-plated wire that comes standard with TinHiFi T1 Plus is somewhat similar in appearance to the KBEAR Lark evaluated before. The wire is generally hard, four-strand braid, and does not have wire control. The weight of the wire itself is very light, and the earphone is a plastic cavity, so the weight of the whole earphone is only 19.5g.
Although I think the cavity of T1 Plus is not so high-end, the smaller cavity and customized shape have a very good performance in wearing comfort, especially for friends with small auricles. There will be any problems, because the cavity itself is not big, and the inner cavity design is also very round.
| 03. Sound performance
If you look at the present from the beginning, you will find that my evaluation of TinHiFi T1 Plus is not so high, but the biggest feature of this product is the beryllium-plated unit and the very characteristic tuning that it carries. My interest in this product is very high.
TinHiFi T1 Plus uses a dynamic driver that is said to have achieved 98% beryllium plating, so the characteristics of beryllium metal have been introduced a lot before. This year, there have been many more beryllium-plated units and even pure beryllium diaphragm earphones, gimmicks. , Whether you have real strength, you can only know it when it sounds. The sensitivity of T1 Plus is 105dB and the impedance is 32Ω.
This evaluation mainly uses portable players as the front end. Comparative reference Philips S2, MoonDrop SSR, Edifier H297. Eartips refer to standard small-diameter silicone earmuffs, and the earphones have been running in for 50 hours.
Hearing sense and style impression: If TinHiFi T1 Plus is still the kind of “popular taste”, it is biased. After all, if it is said that the popular taste, H297 is much stronger than it. The sound of T1 Plus seems to be the kind of “just right” feeling, you can even use one word to describe its sense of hearing: good.
Except for the slightly raised low frequency compared to the SSR, the rest of the T1 Plus has certain similarities with the SSR in style. The difference is that the sound of the T1 Plus is a little bit bold. Its overall sound distribution is fairly balanced, just a little bit of popular tuning, such as making the high frequencies sound softer, and making the low frequencies slightly improved. This is an operation that makes many entry-level users leave a good impression.
Another thing is that the separation of TinHiFi T1 Plus itself is very good. Even if I don’t tell you this is a single dynamic earphone, you might even think it might be an armature earphone, which is the kind of tuning and crossover. Well made armature earphones. Compared with KBEAR Lark at the same price, the tuning of T1 Plus is more mature and stable, and no frequency band can give you the so-called “stimulation.”
The sound field performance of TinHiFi T1 Plus is not considered the advantage of this earphones, because its sound field may be slightly larger than that of SSR, but it is a big deal. If you want a wide horizontal sound field, maybe the T1 Plus can’t do anything, but the rare thing is that the vertical and horizontal distribution can have a more accurate positioning. This may be the same price that I currently recommend. One of the best among in-ear earphones.
Three-band performance: I think the difference between the sound of TinHiFi T1 Plus and the “three-band equalization” is only in that slightly more low frequency, and the performance of the remaining frequency bands is just right. The main reason is that the high-frequency resolution of TinHiFi T1 Plus itself is really excellent. Compared with SSR, it is not only durable, but also much better in detail. The high frequency of T1 Plus is slightly thinner, and the ductility is better than SSR, which I did not expect. On the low-end earphones, the high frequency is either done less, which can cover up the burr and some quality deficiencies, or it is done bluntly and high, showing full details, but TinHiFi T1 Plus is obviously not such a product.
However, the mid-frequency part may be the only weakness of TinHiFi T1 Plus. The resolution of the mid-frequency part is weaker than that of the high-frequency part. The main reason is that the density of the mid-frequency is slightly lower. This causes the human voice to sound not so delicate and slightly rough. It sounds similar to SSR, but the mid frequency of TinHiFi T1 Plus is slightly thinner than SSR. But in terms of actual quality, among the entry-level earphones, the mid-frequency of the TinHiFi T1 Plus is still good. After all, considering its price, I think this weakness will not affect the strength of the product itself.
The low frequency aspect is indeed more sense of volume than SSR, but far less than H297. The low frequency of TinHiFi T1 Plus is powerful, density and low frequency extension are better than SSR, so from the perspective of hearing, the low frequency adjustment of T1 Plus is very qualified. Although the sense of volume can be clearly perceived, the low frequency of T1 Plus is not too heavy, and it will not cover up the details of the mid and high frequencies, but if you listen to the low frequency of T1 Plus, you will know an entry-level earphones that can achieve low frequency performance. There are really few people at this level.
To me, TinHiFi T1Plus is still not a “perfect” product. Its appearance, accessories and workmanship are all at the level of its price, but the sound performance gives people a sense of surprise. If you If you don’t really hear this product, you would never think that this humble earphones can have such a great sound.
So, for the TinHiFi T1 Plus, maybe the money you spend is more for its sound than for appearance or packaging accessories. I think T1 Plus is more suitable for users who have a limited budget but still need a better sound quality to consider.
Advantages: excellent sense of hearing, excellent quality, not picking the front end.
Disadvantages: general details and workmanship, general packaging accessories.
