[REVIEW] T-PEOS Altone 200 – Heck of a Bargain

The Korean company really needs no introduction at this point. They have proven themselves as a capable IEM maker with a series of top of the line hybrid as well as some good sound yet budget friendly dynamic IEM. The new Altone 200 is the continuation of the company’s hybrid line of IEM, with a never-heard-of price point nonetheless. The best part? You are not getting lesser of SQ just because you are paying a cheap price.

T-PEOS has another flagship ready for preorder. This time, it is the Altone2000, featuring a 3 ways hybrid configuration with dual BA and one dynamic. It is surprisingly affordable at only US$125 right now and US$145 after the promotion.

Brainwavz too has a new IEM, the S5, with a single dynamic transducer. Price at around US$100

T-PEOS is introducing a new single BA + dynamic hybrid model, the H-100 II, to replace the original H-100. They are currently starting a pre-sale event over at Head-fi. Priced around US$92 with shipping included. If it is as good as the original H-100, then it should be quite a bargain.

[Impression] S.M.S.L. sAp-4s and sAp-7

If you ever searched eBay trying to hunt down a desktop or portable headphone amp, chance are you already come across the brand ‘S.M.S.L.’ - a Chinese brand that has pumped out quite a few headphone amps over the years. Their Chinese name is actually quite interesting – “two wood three forest” (don’t ask me why as I don’t know either). The two models we are going to look at belong to their portable line-up.
