MIU MR2 PRO
A new product to be released from a manufacture new to IEMs. expected price $49.99
The miu MR2 pro is a dynamic driver
9mm driver unit
1m long ofc cable
came in a very nice box
included is a typical circular iem case that are really common now(one side is hard like shure's old case and one side is soft)
3 pairs of tips in addition to pair already installed
(s/2m/l)(the tips are very difficult to replace inner tube of tips maybe smaller than nozzle)
Very good beautiful packaging and accessories expect the tips.
Cable kinda reminds me of the jvc fxc50
cable except thicker
the glue use on the housing was really poor as I was able to remove it in mere minutes without the use of any tools.
The glue problem worries me but even the re0 and head direct has glue issues.
It's about average depending on the tips used.
Included tips do not isolate well.

Initially I did not like this earphone. The bass was over powering most of the spectrum like a sub woofer in my head.
and the treble was very rolled off. But the bass was impressive for an IEM some of the lowest bass I've ever heard from an IEM. I dare say that the bass extension is better than that of several full size headphones I've tried.
I ended up dampening the back of the housing with some blutak(I also think the used a softer plastic for the housing because a rigid housing would had created much worst backwave and muddy the bass alot more.)
The MR2 is a bass heavy IEM with a okay midrange and slightly rolled off treble which opens up
with burn in.. The details were imnpressive it seem to be able to keep up with my jvc fxc50 in that aspect. After significant burn in the bass settles down for more of balanced sound. The lowering of the bass does reveal more of the mids and slightly more highs.
The mr pro2 present a full sounding IEM with balance signature + extra bass.
The soundstage was average and the separation is better than average.
I believe that they do fit in to the $50 bracket with very pleasant warm sound, but do feel that they lack extension in the highs. Detail slightly below that of the budget buster around it's price point, but does provide a sound signature that is very different. The extra low extension of the bass makes it feel more like a fullsize headphone rather than an IEM, but build quality concerns me.
I highly recommend opening up the back housing and blutacking the back housing
personally I've grown to like them after adding 2 layers of electrical tape followed by a layer of nutty putty(blutak alternative) and 2 layers of painters tape.(this tightens up the bass and gives in a better bass slam)
I retract my reccomendation for bluetak after 6 months these have grown on me but I had stuff way too much bluetack and have snagged a voice coil wire and killed and driver in the process.
