2022 has been a year of Planar Magnetic Driver IEMs for us audiophiles. We have got so many amazing IEMs, 7Hz Timeless, LETSHUOER S12, Tin HiFi P1 Max, etc. Today, DUNU joins the Planar bandwagon with its highly anticipated pair of premium in-ear monitors, the DUNU Talos. Talos is actually a hybrid driver set that houses a newly-developed 14.6mm planar magnetic driver paired with dual custom balanced armature driver units. The interesting thing is that DUNU Talos offers a switch to choose between the single Planar driver mode or multi-driver hybrid mode. DUNU Talos is currently launched on pre-order priced at 199.99$, shipments are expected to begin on 26th September.
Following the classic tales, Talos refers to a legend who is immortal until the Age of Demigods. Classic tales tell us that Talos was made up of bronze and was invincible. DUNU has named and designed its very first planar magnetic IEM on this legendary tale. Talos features a gold-plated brass cavity structure that has been professionally adjusted for a clean response. The pair has multiple vents on the front and rear cavities for maintaining the air pressure inside the cavity structure. DUNU has designed the outer shell with CNC machined aviation-grade aluminum alloy material that gives the pair a charm of its own!!
DUNU has featured a three-driver hybrid configuration on the Talos. The pair houses a 14.6mm large planar magnetic driver with an ultra-thin diaphragm and two custom-developed Balanced Armature drivers on each side. The Planar driver here is tuned for a full frequency band while the BA drivers are tuned to enhance the high-frequency band. Talos features a switch to choose between Planar and Planar+Dual BA hybrid modes. Here’s a frequency graph to showcase the frequency response of Talos with and without BA drivers turned on.
DUNU Talos has got a high-purity silver-plated monocrystalline copper cable as stock. It has standard 0.78mm connectors and a fixed 3.5mm termination plug. Planar Wars have been going on in the industry for the past few months. We have got a new fighter in the form of DUNU Talos, it would be really interesting to see how it fares against the other celebrated models!!
