What I haven't told everyone is there's a number of well known reviewers receiving samples of Alton200 very soon, such as ClieOS, d marc0, Brooko, Ostewart, DigitalFreak, they'll all have an opinion to set the course of motion. What distracts me is my job was to introduce the product, nothing more, then I get caught up in questions and become the 'hype driver.' Any hint of me being the driving force I'll feel obligated to back away knowing those reviews are coming. 

I like that list 👍

Also, ☺️. Great post d marc0

Driver flex is a beautiful sound, reminds me of butterfly's sweeping gently over a cool ocean breeze. wink.gif

Why does the thread say Alton200 when the box says Altone200?

Because reading is hard.

Strange you might mention this. During my conversations with T-Peos who speak Korean I was constantly informed the product name was Alton200 even though I could clearly see the name ALTONE written on my prototype sample. After being informed many times I assumed there was a name change.

As you see here even mobyn calls it Alton in the sponsor section . (As I was informed)

After seeing d marc0's sample how about we call it Altone200 now as I believe that is the final name. :P

I will reflect this later on today.

Would love to get some measurements on the treble region of the Altone200.  I don't mind a little elevation in that region, but the graph of the H300 was a little scary.  It sounds like that issue was addressed with this model, but I'd still like to have a better sense of it. 

 

I'm very impressed with the concept behind this.

If T-Peos is taking feedback in their product design, I would recommend a higher end model that has the ergonomic housing design of the 1plus2 or Westone style.  My biggest gripe with the current hybrids is that they're almost all the bullet shape and can be too big for many ears.

That's a good idea.  A major part of the reason the Brainwav R1s wound up being used is their ergonomic shape.  I believe this shape also contributes to greater isolation.

I'll be getting yet another hybrid to review soon as well, the Rhapsodio Rider 1.0

I just noticed that the thread heading is spot on!

 

"High End Sound, Cheap as Chips"

 

Good on you @H20Fidelity! 'couldn't have stated it better myself...

Unless you're referring to a i3, that's one expensive bag of chips. :3

Or like the Aurisonics ASG-2

The ASG 2's ergonomics are good but the earpieces are a bit too big overall. The Tenore was bullet shaped but quite comfy given its size. If they could get the components inside a KC06 form factor, that would be sweet. Getting compared to the Tenore is already impressive on its own IMB. 👍
