(Chi-fi IEM Review) Tripowin × HBB MELE: Perfect midrange for superb texture expression. Mild and suitable for those who are sensitive to high frequencies, but lacks dynamism in expression, which is a clear drawback.

Sound quality description

In this review, I use the standard eartips size L and drive it with the FiiO M15.


The TinHiFi T3 Plus has a very neutral, near-perfect midrange with very accurate textural representation. The sound field is forward localized and the music is heard in the foreground as if listening through speakers. The midrange is very transparent and sounds very clean.


Please see here for detailed reviews on sound quality.


Sound quality general comment
  • Original Sound Fidelity: A-
  • Recommendation: S-
  • Personal preference: A


The Tripowin Mele has a warm neutral sound with a sense of forward localization, and the highs are mild, making it suitable for those who are sensitive to high frequencies.

Not only does it have a very accurate texture, which is hard to find in this price range, but it's rare to find such a carefully crafted midrange in all earphones. The high frequency range with little peak dip is also very nice, and you can make a perfect monitor earphone just by increasing the high frequency range with EQ.

General comment

The Tripowin x HBB MELE is a gospel for audiophiles who love accurate textural representation. In a slightly narrow sound field with a slightly forward localization, the Tripowin x HBB MELE is able to capture the entire musical image in a compact form with a very natural texture. The lack of high frequencies obscures the sense of localization and clarity, but the low peak dips make it easy to adjust. Since the actual resolution is not bad, the clarity can be improved remarkably with adjustments.
