Posted a comparison of four triple-driver hybrid earphones - the Sony XBA-H3, Dunu DN-2000, Fidue A83, and T-Peos Altone200: http://theheadphonelist.com/brief-review-dunu-dn-2000-fidue-a83-t-peos-altone200-sony-xba-h3-triple-driver-hybrids-compared/
The short version:
- The Sony XBA-H3 is warm and smooth-sounding, with big bass that slightly veils the midrange. Treble quality is quite good, however, and it's got a nice, big sound. The design can hardly be called ergonomic but the earphones are lightweight and comfortable, and the detachable cable is of excellent quality.
- The Dunu DN-2000 is an evolution of the DN-1000 model, with a more balanced sound, more refined treble, and slightly more spacious presentation. It strikes the best balance of bass, clarity, and neutrality for me, though it gives up a bit of coherence compared to the Sonys.
- The Fidue A83 delivers the most balanced overall sound. Clarity is not quite as striking as it is with the more v-shaped Dunu and T-Peos, but it also has a rather out-of-the-head presentation going for it.
- The T-Peos Altone200 is the least expensive of the bunch, a sub-$150 triple-driver hybrid. It has a more v-shaped signature. Bass is great but the mids sound a little more thin and withdrawn compared to the others. The lower treble tends to be a little hot but can be improved with foam tips. The Altone200 has a very basic, no-frills packaging presentation and construction, but it is also lightweight and comfortable, and very reasonably-priced.
