What is this.
Why does this exist.
Who signed off on this.
How does this have positive reviews?
Look, I get it. Hifiman’s a popular audiophile company and it’s hard to believe that they would intentionally churn out garbage thinking it would sell regardless. I had the same thought going into the TWS600: man these suck, maybe somethings broken with them?
… welp, both channels match. Guess this is how it’s really supposed to be.
The TWS600 is a tonal monstrosity that probably singlehandedly tanked my last remaining respects for Hifiman. It sounds like a 1950s telephone with just as much resolving ability, and doesn’t even come with the courtesy of a budget pricetag. No, you’re going to get the full-fat Fang Bian experience here, just without the final pricing justification.
Why are they so expensive? Because they sound so good.
I wish, Mr. Fang. I wish.
