Dunu Titan 5 Earphones Review
IN THE BOX
The Dunu Titan 5 earphone comes with everything you need to get a perfect fit and store your earphone in between uses. Inside the box is the Titan 5 Earphone, 1 detachable cable with 1/8″ plug, 6-sets of silicone eartips, 1-set of in-ear stabilizers, a cable clip, a 1/4″ adapter and a really nice storage case. The storage case is small enough you can fit it in your pocket. It’s an incredible package for the price.
Design / Style
The Titan 5 Earphone housing is constructed of a beautiful stainless steel making it one of the most durable in-ear headphones you’ll ever own. The audio cable is sturdy and has no inline controls for smartphones. Dunu opted rather for optimal sound by bypassing additional electronics in the signal flow. The detachable cable is a handy feature as even the most high-end wires can eventually wear out and replacing the entire earphone isn’t necessary. Overall this earphone will last you a very long time.
The Titan 5 fits snugly in the ear canal with the main portion of the housing sitting in the inner-ear. With 6-sets of eartips you can find the perfect fit and get a proper seal which will give you the best sound. The comfort level on the Titan 5 is really nice. It’s not too bulky yet has enough room for a decent sized driver.
