Tekfusion Twinwoofers Quick Review
Thanks to Tekfusion for the sample.
Brief: All hail our new Indian overlords
Price: US$50 or about £30
Specification: Frequency Response 19 Hz- 21 kHz, Impedance 16 Ohms, Pressure Level 113dB, Gross Weight 30g(1.06 Oz), Net Weight(without cable) 7.5g, Color Black Chrome, Cable Length 1.2m, Cable Type Symmetric, Connector Type 3.5m Gold Plated
Accessories: Baggy, Shirt Clip, 5 pairs of tips
Build Quality: The buds are metal and sturdy. The cable and jack feel a touch on the delicate side.
Isolation: Pretty good for a dynamic. The usual story, fine for on a bus, maybe not so much for Tube or a long flight. Still more than enough to get yourself run over of course.
Comfort/Fit: Great on both accounts. The things weigh next to nothing. They got shoved in ears and that was that. Good stuff.
Aesthetics: The buds are a touch pretty, the cable less so. They look fine, nothing particularly note worthy.
Sound: Excellent. Not anything like as bassy as the name had me expecting though. Yes the bass is pretty elevated and yes it stands well forward of the mids but I was expecting a real bass cannon. It’s still enough to make me feel an EQ down wouldn’t hurt; a bit of a bump in the mids too I wouldn’t mind. Quality wise its firm and sold. Tonally things are all a bit warm but dry, mids are airy and breathy, highs shimmering and delicate. Speaking of highs they a bit elevated too but have next to no abrasiveness to them. Just a wash of silvery shimmering at the top end. Reasonable extension on them. Still I’d like the faintly delicate nature of the vocals and the accordant width to perhaps have a little more forward focus. Still, can’t have everything. Detail levels are superb for the money and really gives the GR06 a run for its money as the former king of the circa US$50 area. The Twinwoofer could too make a claim to that title. Granted the bass is a bit on the humpy and the mids are much too distant for my tastes but the quality of the mids is great. The bass is firm and punchy, a little more softness would work better given its quantity I think but, hey, I’m no basshead. I wish there was more made of the quality of the mids, yeah the width is lovely and air they have but please sir, may I have some more sir? Think kinda V shaped with a bass slant to it.
Value: Very good. I can’t say it’s “better” than the GR06 but sound for your money its every bit as good if you desire its signature. Its build feels a rather less substantial though.
Pro’s: Solid punchy bass, great air and openness to the mids and highs.
Con’s: Builds not stellar, bit much bass, mids a bit too distant.
