DUNU-Topsound, widely known as DUNU is a pioneer brand when it comes to HiFi in-ear monitors. DUNU’s Titan series of entry-level budget in-ear monitors have been renewed with the latest model Titan S. They have completely redesigned the look and feel of the Titan series, the Titan S has a Cyberpunk-inspired metal shell and is launched worldwide for 79.99$.
At the core of Titan S is an 11mm dynamic drive. This driver adopts a multi-layered polycondensate LCP (Liquid Crystal Polymer) diaphragm along with a lightweight CCAW voice coil. It also has an N52 internal magnet that produces a powerful magnetic flux allowing the diaphragm and coil to move swiftly and produce lower distortion in the output signal.
The cyberpunk-inspired classy ear shells in DUNU Titan S are crafted using highly durable and lightweight Zinc alloy material. They have an anti-resonance dual-chamber design that effectively reduces any resonance effect caused by the signal inside the cavity. They have an ergonomic shape ensuring a comfy fit for most users.
DUNU has bundled a high-purity mixed strand cable made with monocrystalline copper and silver-plated copper cores. It has 0.78mm 2-pin connectors and memory hooks near the connectors for easy over-the-ear fit. The cable has a 3.5mm single-ended termination plug.
I would like to thank DUNU for providing me with a review unit.
If you love impactful, refined and quality bass, Dunu Titan S must be on your list. The sub-bass extends low down to the low end of human hearing and you can hear the rumble in songs where the bass goes low and deep. The mid-bass is well done and right on point. The note definition is quite good to figure bass lines out especially if they go down deep. Kicks have good slam and attack too. Dunu Titan S has a good punch when the song demands it and especially shines with bass-driven songs.
The mids are pretty good too. They have a good amount of resolution and clarity. They sound natural, timbre presentation is good and the tonality of instruments is on point. Snares have good tone, depth and smack as per the song. Vocals sound natural, upfront and well defined in the songs. The Dunu Titan S stays very comfortable and musical at both low and high volumes. I don’t want to seem like I’m exaggerating but cracking the volume and listening to your favourite tracks is fun.
Dunu Titan S has good clarity in the treble. Treble is sparkling and airy enough, with a very good sense of space and a very good portrayal of nuances. The details are clearly exposed and easy to hear. Vocals and cymbals never get sibilant or harsh.
Soundstage, Imaging and Separation.
Dunu Titan S has good width and instruments panned left and right are well defined and placed wide apart. It has good depth too as you can hear the depth of effects like reverb trails and delays. Imaging is on point too and the resolution and separation between instruments from a single dynamic driver are quite impressive.
Dunu Titan S does everything right. The bass is good, mids are natural, drums and vocals are a joy to listen to and treble is crisp and clear yet smooth. Titan S at its price is quite accessible and I think it is one dynamic driver IEM that everyone should have. It will work very well as a daily driver because of its robust and solid build as well as its extremely well-tuned sound signature. Plus it also looks very unique and this makes it more special in my opinion. I think Titan S is the new king in this price range.
