If you don't remember the TinHiFi T5 IEMs reviewed a few months ago, I can't blame you necessarily. TinHiFi tried something different, and it didn't work out as well as I and most of the general audience would have preferred. Soon after that review was finished, I got word that the treble-heavy tuning there was on purpose to appeal to a different market altogether. TinHiFi then directly contacted me to gauge interest in reviewing its newest offering, an addition to its popular Tank series of IEMs which are much more budget-friendly. I do like the clean industrial design, so how could I refuse? Thanks to TinHiFi for arranging a review sample for TechPowerUp!
There are currently three product series from TinHiFi: T, P (planar, higher-end), and TWS. The T series has been its bread and butter since inception, offering excellent value for money to where western brands just can't compete. The T2 and T2 Plus in particular get strong recommendations from users and reviewers alike, so when the company announced the T2 Evo, many were intrigued. These certainly look nearly identical to the T2 and T2 Pro, with a single dynamic driver inside a low-profile shell. Let's test how the new package works out in this review which begins with a look at the product specifications in the table below.
