TRI is the sister brand of KBear. I had latest rewieved single drivered Aurora . Now the return of hybrid configuration. Here is TRI Meteor with 99$ tag. Through review with technical details and cable + amping will follow next.
Drivers: 10mm Beryllium-plated DD + Knowles ED-29689 BA
Interface: 2pin 0.78
Plug: 3.5mm single
Fit is easy like the other TRI iems and somewhat large for my M ears. But not ear hurting in the long run. Cable is soft and thick by braiding. Connectors are in metal.
While it’s specs are telling of the amp need, truth is proving it right. %100 volume at v30+ is not making my hurt and the sound distort.
I am hearing a sweet bass under it’s dark to neutral timbre at the first moments of Tubular Bells. Notal weight is not that high. Bass is potent, wide’n relaxed, controlled and can go deep when needed. And head wobbling at dubstep. Bass impact is at the level of a basshead piece. More bass rumbles at lower frequencies and less bass punch than amped HM. But a wider and higher scene. And pretty natural. Background resolution is more than nice in unamped listening. Treble is high in resolution. Extensions too. But maybe a tad weaker, unamped they aren’t resonating more than they should.
is like a meteor when the bass begins at the track. And while the main body of an actual Meteor is at extremely heats and the tail is sparkling with the melting chunk of stone / ice, this has managed to keep itself cool and tidy. Thus it’s a steal for 99$.
