T-Peos Altone200 - Stunningly Vivid Presentation


Pros: Vivid and clear presentation, captivating bass, stellar build, fit, value

Cons: Sparse accessory package (but not expected to be better considering value), blue foam tips too easy to come off in ear.

For larger views of any of the photos (1200 x 800) - please click on the individual images     PREAMBLE   SWP Shinwoo (http://swpshinwoo.com/) is a Korean electronics company founded in 1986 who started developing earphones in 2012, changed their company name to T-Peos in 2013, and at the same time launched their first 3 way hybrid IEMs.  Their focus is on quality (reading their website is impressive), and it shows in their latest product release – the T-Peos Altone200.   Until recently I did not know a lot about T-Peos or their product range – just a little information following the release of their H200 and H300 hybrid designs.  I followed the...

Details Beyond Belief.


Pros: Great Detail, Comfort, Tight Bass

Cons: Lack of Accessories

  Disclaimer: First off, I would like to thank Jeremy from CTC Audio for the opportunity to review this wonderful hybrid.  I was privileged to be able to be a part of the CTC Audio Product tour and I must say that this is an impressive product offering from T-Peos!  The product in this review can be found here: http://ctcaudio.com/collections/in-ear-monitors-iems/products/t-peos-altone200-3way-hybrid-earphones             The T-Peos Altone 200 is a triple driver hybrid featuring a dual balanced armature (TWFK) and a single dynamic driver.  Amazingly they were able to fit all of this in such a small casing! ...

A truly premium 3-way hybrid design on a budget!


Pros: a bright detailed sound, amazing bass quality and quantity, excellent build

Cons: gets a bit too bright in lower treble

This is a review of T-Peos Altone 200 3-way hybrid premium in-ear headphones.  http://www.t-peos.co.kr (ordering info found in: http://www.head-fi.org/t/726736/t-peos-announce-closing-preorder-of-altone200-and-start-official-sale)   After reviewing a lot of single and multi-driver dynamic and balanced armature (BA) headphones, the next logical step for me was to look into hybrid in-ear headphones.  Actually, in the past I tested a 2-way hybrid pair from another vendor, but wasn't too impressed with its tuning.  Other multi-driver hybrid models I found to be too pricey, until I came across T-Peos announcement of their new Altone 200 model (VERY reasonably priced at...

Heck of a Bargain


Pros: SQ, Build Quality, Price.

Cons: Rather simple accessories, but not a real issue at its price.

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.     Spec Driver Units: Knowles' TWFK Double Balanced Armature + 8.0mm Single Dynamic Unit Impedance: 22 ohm @ 1 kHz Sensitivity: 105 dB @ 1 kHz Power: 100 mW (Max) Frequency Response: 20 Hz ~ 20 kHz Connector: 3.5 mm / 24 K Gold coated L-Type...

A Great Upgrade Path


Pros: Detail, even-handed presentation, build

Cons: Nothing glaring at all...sparse package I suppose...

Once upon a time, I was a scruffy young gentleman, wandering the United Kingdom, far, far away from home and living out of a backpack. My roots were third-world, simple and rural, and the marvels of the first world still made me gape and feel awed.   The fancy boutiques in London, the trendy kids all decked out in crazy, hip clothes…but most of all, the music shops. Every town I wandered through had one, and each was curated by the same vaguely academic looking miscreant, with stubble and clothes just as scruffy as mine Inside were always racks upon racks of used CDs. This was pre-the now-unstoppably-pervasive internet for me. I spent all of my spare time in these stores, and...

T-PEOS Altone 200 Review: "High End Sound, Cheap As Chips!"


Pros: Excellent sound quality, very comfortable, and admireable build quality at a price that will not break the bank.

Cons: Lower treble emphasis may not be ideal for some...

    T-PEOS is at it again… this time with the intention of pleasing the consumer market by offering an excellent sounding earphone without breaking the bank. The Altone 200 is the latest 3-way Hybrid Design adopted from their flagship IEM, the H-300. To achieve their goal, the main components such as the dynamic and balanced armature drivers are kept intact but extra features such as removable cables and premium accessories were excluded. Fortunately, the build quality of the IEM casing is excellent! Made from aluminium and steel with a superb smooth finish. The best part is how small and light these IEMs are… they can be easily inserted and stay comfortably in your ears. As...

Clarity and quality at a great price. The Altone 200 triple hybrid earphone from T-Peos


Pros: Clear and detailed sound, Great price for a triple hybrid design, Left and right marked with red/blue strain relief is very convenient

Cons: Treble can become fatiguing at louder volumes

This mini review is part of a larger review/thread on the entire T-Peos Altone series. Here is a link to the thread:   http://www.head-fi.org/t/774084/t-peos-altone-series-thread#post_11751591     T-Peos Altone 200 ($189 on CTC Audio’s website) *currently out of stock http://www.ctcaudio.com/collections/t-peos/products/t-peos-altone200-3way-hybrid-earphones   The Altone 200 is the grandpa of the Altone line, but is also arguably the best sounding as well. They feature a metal housing and a fixed and more flexible cable with less spring and memory than the new models. They have a straight barrel design that fits very well and works looped over and hanging...
