About the IEM
- Great and refreshing design
- Finally a Tin IEM that fits, stays comfortable after longer usage
- Good cable for the price
- The first Tin IEM I with beautiful design and good fit
🥇Can’t really wish for more given the sub $100 price point. One of the more beautiful IEM in my collection with adequate accessories.
- Great consumer-focused tuning
- Bass is fast and has power while never overwhelming the rest
- Treble sometimes a little weak to non-existent
- Vocals have good presence, can sometimes be slightly muffled
- Lacking in detail and resolution, especially noticable compared to Aria/Starfield
- Suprisingly big soundstage
🥈 Solid sonic performance that doesn’t really do anything wrong while not excelling at anything either. The best sounding Tin IEM for my taste so far.
Since I don’t own the Moondrop Aria, I’ll compare the T3 Plus to the somewhat similar Moondrop Starfield. Given the price difference, the Aria would be a fairer comparison.
Tin T3 Plus
- Fit and design
- More and better bass quantity and quality
- More relaxed treble
- Bigger soundstage
- More exciting sound
- Better technicalities, especially more detailed and higher resolution
- Treble is more accurate and present, altough sometimes slightly piercing
- Vocals more present and clearer
The Mele are one of the defacto recommendations for great IEMs under $100. Their focus is on reproducing great bass (quality and quantity) and offering a more “fun” sound signature.
Tin T3 Plus
- More balanced sound
- Better representation of vocals
- Better treble response
- More details
- More bass and more “slam”
- Especially more prominent subbass
- Slightly better cable
The Tin T3 Plus might just be one of the best options under 100 Dollars. A pleasant sound signature that should fit most tastes with enough and qualitative bass coupled with good-enough resolution and details present a quite great package at that price point.
Additionally, the Tin T3 Plus have great fit and are well-crafted and well-designed. From a look-and-feel-perspective, the T3+ might just be one of the best Sub-100$ IEMs available right now.
With their quite similar frequency response – though vastly different quality in technicalities – the T3+ can offer a little taste of more expensive and better IEMs like Moondrop’s Blessing 2 Dusk.
Now, finally, after I’ve disliked all IEMs from Tin HiFi I tested – including the highly acclaimend Tin T2 – I’ve liked a Tin product. The T3 Plus is by quite a margin their best IEM. Here’s to hoping that Tin will follow this trend and their next releases will be closer to the T3 Plus – in design as well as sound.
- Great fit and design
- Great all rounder with tuning matching most tastes
- Controlled bass
- Surprisingly big sound stage
- Bass can lack texture
- Thin cable
- Higher treble can be a bit too piercing
- Resolution and details slightly lacking
- Vocals sometimes muffled
