Did they clean up that spike around 8-10khz?

Gear mentioned in this thread:
There are some microphonics present and cable spring though nothing a quick clip shouldn't prevent.
More like a stripped down H-300. Completely forget about H-200, this thing leaves it in the dust.
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.

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.
