Review ACS T1 Custom-Fit IEM - say hello TMA!
ACS' newly overhauled T1 is a very nice earphone which will get some lovin' at TMA in the short term (think April). Similar to Sennsaphonics 2X-s, it is made of medical silicon and has a fixed cable. But unlike the Sensaphonics, that cable isn't twisted, and it is much longer. As you can see, ACS can also print onto the custom silicon. It is etched and ten coloured and looks great. My wife gave me the thumbs up - a first regarding customs which she thinks look like worms.
I can't help but feel the similarities in design which prompted both companies to adopt silicon, but the T1, with its hot instruction booklet, leather/pleather carrying pouch, and customisation options sure feels like it was meant to bridge the gap between audiophile and professional.
It is triple balanced armature and sounds it: thick and powerful, but not raw, and unlike the 2X-s, lacks slight treble fatigue. Let's leave it at that for now: more to come when TMA's review is ready.
A great review of the ACS T1 is at headfi by royhendo - check it out!
