Chinese / Asian Brand IEM Info Thread

    Yeah when you were talking about the new version it got me confused with the T2 Pro, never realized there was a 2nd revision of the T2.

    Does the T2 have a metallic sound because of their metal body compared to the plastic sound of the KZ IEM's? I prefer plastic sounding/made buds.

    there's no info about supported codecs, so I'm guessing it has sbc only

    get your wallet ready TRN fans, someone from the company said in the FB audiobudget page that they're making a 12BA and 16BA IEM before end of the year, supposedly will be using Knowles BA.

    That would be extremely exciting......if it weren't for this.

    IF it is confirmed that TRN is making rookie mistakes on 8-core soldering for their new cables.......well, let's just say that it doesn't instill a great deal of confidence in their ability to properly solder 12 balanced armatures into an IEM, not to mention 16 balanced armatures.

    I'm on the sidelines until there is confirmation that improper soldering is an extremely limited occurrence. More reports confirming or denying the issue should be coming in over the next few days so we'll know soon enough. Let's hope it's not a widespread issue.

    The cables and the units would be made in different facilities by different people.

    TRN is the lower brand of TENHZ. So this monster is going to be branded TENHZ, because the minimum price tag is 300 bucks.

    oh, so the guys went to Magaosi first after leaving KZ and only then split off to make 2 brands, TRN and Audboss (which later became Tenhz)? now that's a story I'd like to know a bit about

    AFAIK they are the same guys with two brands. TENHZ for over 70 bucks and TRN for less.

    It sounds a little bit strange and unreal, because TRN appeared before Magaosi.
    According to the official storyline TRN Acoustic Technology was established in October 2013. In 2014 the company divided into TRN Acoustics and DZAT (Shenzhen Du Zhe Te Technology Co). Since 2017 TRN Acoustics is known as Dongguan Zuodu Acoustic Technology Co. and now owns the TRN trademark.
    Magaosi and HiLisening brands belong to Shenzhen Haili Xinxin Technology Co., registered in 2015.
    Audbos and TenHZ brands belong to Shenzhen Julifei Electroacoustic Technology Co., registered in 2016.
    I doubt if there's any relationship between TRN and TenHZ.

    got some more info on the models from the FB page:
    "12 and 16BAs will be sold under the TRN badge. It is currently developing by Mr Brain, using Knowles BA drivers. No news yet as the 12 BAs turned out quite bad. I have the beta with me.

    Yes, Tenhz is a sister company of TRN (although not directly related). Audboss was the former name of TenHz.

    You see, TRN was started by two guys (let’s call them “Mr Money” and “Mr Brain”). Mr Money is the co-founder of TenHz/Audboss. He is the finance supporter behind TRN. On the other hand, Mr Brain is the technical guy behind TRN (also a former engineer of KZ) but he has no influence over TenHz products. I hope this clears your doubts."

    no idea how "sister company" works in this sense, but it seems they're still tuning. Going big with 12 and 16BAs, I'm intrigued.

    Chinese corporate issues. 12 to 16 Knowles BA are too much for even Tenhz with stronger financials.
     
  15. Zerohour88
    at least we know its going to be under TRN brand and then priced under usd$300 (he seemed certain, but with things still being tuned, I'd wait for actual announcement first). He also said using the JH Layla as an inspiration.
