Intro

YINYOO releases with the V2 a dual dynamic In-Ear, which reminds in its appearance very much of the Tin AUDIO T2. They share a similar case in design and quality, as well as the driver configuration. Whether the V2 can hold a candle to the T2, however, remains to be seen.

Handling

The V2 captivates by its robust construction made of metal, as well as the possibility to wear it over the ear, or hanging down. If you prefer the first version, it is advisable to change the left and right in-ear, as the V2 is even more comfortable to wear. This can be compensated by swapping the cable sides.

In general, the cable is of good quality, quite supple and flexible, and covered with silver. Due to the 2-pin connector, many cables from other manufacturers (KZ, TRN, BQEYZ etc.) are compatible with the V2. There are also numerous upgrade cables with several cores, as well as Bluetooth adapters.
The noise insulation is excellent and shields you very well from the outside world.
Compared to the T2, the V2 does not expose itself here and is at eye level.

Sound

Here the V2 differs clearly from the Tin AUDIO T2. The V2 is much more fun tuned, with more bass and pushed mids. That's far from neutral, but it's fun in all genres!

The low bass is dry, very playful, clean and submerges relatively late, which will make bass lovers happy. The midbass is also very prominent and has a good punch, but it slightly attacks the mids. It provides the warm sound of the V2, but also makes it very dynamic and powerful. Especially the drums seem wonderfully full and to the point.

The mids are slightly raised, which sometimes makes the V2 seem a bit unnatural, but at the same time provides for crunchy guitars and powerful synths. The voice reproduction is a bit better with women, but also male voices have a pleasant timbre and seem tonal correct.

The highs are very pleasant and rarely have an unpleasant peak. They are rich in detail, but not unnecessarily boosted and fit very well to the sound signature, which can be described as W-shaped. Even in the high regions, you can still get a lot out of the highs. Compared to the T2, they must admit defeat, but they are also less sharp. The sibilants are perceptible depending on the song and recording quality, but that also depends on the respective source.

The stage is very wide and quite deep which makes songs quite interesting, but the T2 also has the nose in front. The positioning of the instruments in the room is also well done.

UPDATE: In the meantime, a revised version of the V2 concerning tuning has been released. This version (2nd Gen) is closer to the Tin Audio T2. But only as far as the upper mids and highs are concerned. The bass of the 2nd Gen has more impact, especially in the midbass. It colors the lower mids much warmer than the T2 which sounds cooler in comparison, but also more neutral. However, it doesn't have as much pressure as the first V2 generation. Since there is no note on the package which version it is, it is a little bit of a lottery game at the moment what you get. Sooner or later, however, the new version will have displaced the old one from the shops. The rating doesn't change for me, because both sound very good. One with more pressure and warm, detailed sound, the other a bit brighter with a breeze more resolution, especially in the midrange.

Outro

In comparison to the T2, the V2 is the one that gets the short end of the stick. However, the V2 doesn't want to emulate the T2 either, at least not in the first generation, which one could assume from the outside and from the driver configuration. It's just fun with its warm, driving and punchy style and doesn't neglect resolution and detail. The mids are a tick too warm, but with the bass part that doesn't seem exaggerated, this is hard to avoid in the price range. Clear purchase recommendation for bass lovers and all who prefer music genres like hip-hop, rock, pop or R&B.

Legend

Haptic:

Here the processing plays a role and the usability of the scope of supply. Additionally the appearance, wearing comfort and robustness.


Value:
Here I evaluate for me subjectively the price/performance ratio - does not flow into the evaluation!

Z: No Brainer

A: money well spent

B: all right, you can do

C: gives better for less money

D: overpriced

E: collector's price

Daily life:
Here, I focus on the long-term audibility and whether I can hear it well out of the box. This is of course very subjective and therefore only a minimal deduction or bonus.
