There are some microphonics present and cable spring though nothing a quick clip shouldn't prevent.

I'm assuming this has more of a connection to H200 than H300 based on the name.


More like a stripped down H-300. Completely forget about H-200, this thing leaves it in the dust.

Thanks. Looks very interesting.


The Dunu DN-1000 sounds blurry in the mid-range compared like it seems confused with busy passages and begins to smear. (lack of coherency)_ with the correct source Altone200 is more accurate. Plus the Dunu simply cannot match this dynamic driver. Not this one nore H-300. The bass has such defined texture and clarity which was well logged with H-300.

I would say for $100, it won't beat a 1Plus2, though it certainly gives my RDB Mini from Rhapsodio a decent run even from a mere Clip Zip. If it means anything RDB Mini is my benchmark and alternative to 1Plus2 last year. (It's worth around $650) And I absolutely love that hybrid. IEM like Westone 4, Unqiue Melody 3X, SM3 V2, Sony H3. Alton200 will leave them behind quite confidently IMO.

I believe they have worked on the treble yes. :)

What we need to remember is the cheap price reflects the stripped down housing and accessories. Not the sound. I can understand people thinking for $105 it won't offer much, but T-Peos have left a high end sound into a cheaper casing. They've cut every corner they can to keep the price down.

For example, the packaging is so simple. There's no longer any foamed out box with magnet sleeves or inner cartons you pull out with an expensive over dressed product, they've lost the detachable cables and snazzy housings. You're paying purely for the sound this time round.

See? Just a simple box, no-where to store your stash nechrow. :wink_face:

I don't know. O_o That's quite a preference orientated question. I could say those who don't own H-300 or were thinking of buying H-300, these are..... cheaper? ;)

Like I say with everything, I'm not going to bust my chops and tell everyone to buy, I will answer questions best I can.

The truth of Alton200 lies in YOUR hands, the members. 



CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

With that said I suggest anyone looking for answers read back through the thread, many have been answered.

I won't be around to answer all the time unfortunately.

All I can give you is a size comparison next to Dunu DN-1000 and H-300.

Perfect for me 😋
post #28 of 531

Based on what H20 has said about the H300 (which I was going to buy) compared with the new Altone200, I have sent my pre-order in the Altone200's :)

post #29 of 531

Order sent as well! This will be my first pair of T-PEOS IEMs. I've been thinking about the DN-2000 but for this price it's an easy decision.  What are the boxed foam tips like H20?

+1, being a sucker for value for money products this certainly looks tempting.
