Tanchjim made a name for themselves very quickly, the company is now widely renowned despite being just a years old. In particular, critics walked away impressed by the mature sound tuning and competitive pricing offered by their products.
The Darling is their latest effort, the company’s first hybrid design with 1x DD and 2x Sonion BA drivers per side. Tanchjim has made a few interesting developments here such as an adjustable depth nozzle and unique air balance ear tips. The ability to adjust the fit depth is an intuitive way to tune the sound to user preference without the need for filters or other tip designs that can negatively affect sound quality and comfort.
The Darling is available on Apos Audio (affiliate) for $419 USD at the time of writing.
