TINHiFi is one of the major and original manufacturers of affordable Hi-Fi in-ear monitors and have been beloved for their budget-friendly T-series and innovative P-series IEMs. Emphasizing build quality and high resolution audio playback, TINHiFi strives to make the best of the audiophile world accessible to all. TINHiFi aims to make the greatest innovations in the audio market affordable and reliable for all.
High-Fidelity Audio, with Bluetooth Ease
The world of music is headed towards wireless. However, so many bluetooth earbuds in the market suffer from poor audio quality. This is oftentimes a combination of poor speaker and audio engineering that comes with the small size of a conventional bluetooth earbud. At TINHiFi, we wanted the convenience and portability of a bluetooth earbud, but without compromising on audio quality. For this reason, the Tin Buds 3 is the first bluetooth earphone to utilize a 6mm beryllium-plated dynamic driver. With this incredible driver upgrade, the same professional audio engineering strategy used in the T3 Plus is utilized in the Tin Buds 3 to achieve a studio-monitor like sound that is also perfect everyday convenience.
Beryllium Diaphragm Drivers
In the field of dynamic driver speakers, the rule is: the greater the tensile strength of the diaphragm membrane, the more responsive the speaker. The material science behind speaker driver design must consider both the weight and flexibility of a material for the diaphragm, as well as the rigidity and strength. Beryllium diaphragms have emerged as one of the best diaphragm materials for headphones and earphones. In fact, most of the best renown in-ear monitors on the market today feature a beryllium dynamic driver due to the incredibly responsive and balanced sound they can provide.
We have engineered an updated 6mm beryllium plated diaphragm driver that has additional plated layers and has been further compressed to be thinner and more flexible. The increased tensile strength and surface tension means the Tin Buds 3 can produce a more responsive sound, translating to higher audio resolution, harder hitting bass, and more pristine trebles.
Balanced Tuning in Every Note
The Tin Buds 3 not only feature the latest and best driver, but also our professional tuning style. The Tin Buds 3 are acoustically engineered to produce a balanced tonal spectrum that is deep and powerful in the bass, yet still natural in the midrange, and clear in the trebles. To maintain a professional tuning, the midrange is free of bloat or muddying, while retaining an ever slight warmth.
The beryllium diaphragm driver delivers detailed and airy upper treble frequencies, but is moderately tamed to prevent any harshness. And best of all, this balanced tuning is all acoustically achieved, rather than through digital sound processing that most bluetooth earphones rely on. The majority of big name bluetooth earphones fail to deliver without heavy reliance on their DSP software. With the Tin Buds 3, the very core and soul of the earbuds are audiophile and HiFi.
The Tin Buds 3 features the latest bluetooth v5.2 for the fastest connectivity and lowest latency. This means you can stream your favorite movies and games to your Tin Buds 3 without any latency between the audio and the video. Furthermore, v5.2 allows higher audio quality transmission, meaning less compression in your Hi-Fi audio files.
90 Days Standby, 6.5 Hours of Play
The Tin Buds 3 feature a huge battery that allows up to 6.5 hours of audio playback and up to 90 days of standby time. Furthermore, with a 400mAh charging case, you can fully charge your Tin Buds 3 in just 1 hour, up to 5 times!
WHAT'S IN THE BOX
I dont understand it. Might be the beryllium drivers. But wow I'm very impressed with how wide the soundstage is for an iem alone. That alone was worth the purchase and that it is wireless as well.
I hate the touch controls. They're large for wireless and they sag in my ear. The sound isn't completely noise free. There is a bit of a hiss too but i doesn't really bother me as much. What does bother me is the fit and the act I can't turn the touch control off to adjust the monitors in my ear without hitting pause, skip, adjust volume etc. I also experimented with ear tips with this and found that the spring tips fit the best for me but some of that soundstage was compromised.
TINHiFi Tin Buds 3
Pros: Great sound
Cons: unresponsive controls
hiss sound when it isn't playing music
These earbuds sound incredible!! I have no issues with dropouts. They play louder than many other earbuds. They also fit my ears very securely and comfortable. The one issue that I have which is keeping me from giving these 5 stars is that when I put the earbuds back in the case the left earbud keeps playing even after the lid closes. I have tried cleaning the contacts but the issue keeps coming back. I usually end up turning the left earbud off manually and that temporary resolves it. Then it seems to work for a while and then the issue starts all over. Maybe I have a faulty pair. I am not sure. Also I would like to see wireless charging added to the next version and maybe a case redesign. You wouldn't be able to take these buds with you because of the way the lid on the case slides open. Everytime you bump the lid, the earbuds will be connecting to your phone. If you want fantastic sound, these definitely are for you!!!
The Tin Buds 3 sound gently detailed, sweet, and nicely balanced with very good extension in both directions.
The bass reaches deep - deeper than Lypertek Tevi actually. The sub-bass is clearly present, with a solid rumble for a TWS. The mid-bass is slightly boosted (luckily only a tiny bit) and has a decent bounce.
Overall the bass is a bit on the softer side but still remains very controlled without any bloat.
Treble has good extension with a nice upper-treble shimmer that comes through in some songs.
Compared to the Moondrop Sparks, the treble is less pronounced, and I would even say, marginally recessed. In this way, the Tin Buds 3 avoid any harshness.
There is a wonderfully transparent sparkle in the treble region, that makes them sound sweet and airy at the same time.
Mids sit nicely in the mix. Voices come across very clear are are placed accurately in the center.
Imaging is very good for a TWS and the soundstage is fairly wide.
Unfortunately there is a bit of background noise. This is only audible when not playing anything. It might go away after burn-in but I cannot confirm this yet.
