Revenge of the Clip-on

The original Yuin G1.

Though not really 'in-ear', two new models of Yuin, the G1A and G2A clip-on, were just announced few days ago - Okay, they ain't really new either, just reversion of the old G1 and G2 clip-on released last year. I was lucky enough to have the chance to review the old G1 last year thanks to Fang @ Head-Direct.com. The original G1 is one of the most revealing and neutral clip-on I even tried when amped properly, even putting a lot of full size headphones to shame. The newer versions are said to be even more balanced than the old models, with better bass and treble response. My guess is, instead of extreme neutrality like the older models, Yuin has decided to add a bit of musicality into the mix. If they are what I imagined to sound like, the G1A and G2A will be very interesting indeed.

G1A'a Spec:
Frequency: 20Hz to 24kHz
Impedance 150 Ohms
Sensitivity: 105 db
Max input voltage: 1000mv
MSRP US$149

G2A's Spec:
Frequency: 20Hz to 20kHz
Impedance 60 Ohms
Sensitivity: 110 db
Max input voltage: 500mv
MSRP US$49

Both are available at Head-Direct.com. Note that G1A is meant to be used with amp.

Also, free review samples are never sold for any financial gain. I do buy gears and review them, but for simplicity you (the reader) should always assume what I review is free sample in nature (and thus comes with all the bias). The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile. Oh, and excuse my writing as I am not a native English speaker and can't afford a proofreader. Also, just because I don't write in a negative tone doesn't mean I don't write down the negative aspect of a gear. Please read them carefully.
