DD HiFi Janus 2: Latest Dual-Socket Single DD IEMs
DD HiFi is mostly known for its high-quality USB DAC/AMPs, adapters, and other HiFi audio accessories. Late last year, DD HiFi debuted into the HiFi IEM market with a unique product, the DD HiFi Janus. Unique because unlike other IEMs in the market that have a single connection port either MMCX or 2-Pin, the Janus had both the ports located at the opposite sides of the pair. They can be connected with any cable in the industry with either of the two connector types. But soon after its launch, the Janus disappeared from the market for unknown reasons. DD HiFi listened to the community and worked on the issues that users with Janus faced. Today, they have released an upgraded Janus for all of us, meet the all-new DD HiFi Janus 2.
Janus 2 is a completely redesigned pair of in-ear monitors. It only shares the same dual connector socket as the former model while the internals is entirely changed. DD HiFi has opted for a newly-developed high-speed 10mm dynamic driver unit that results in faster, energetic sound. Janus 2 has a new double-layer vibrating rear cavity for a controlled sound response. Internal wiring is customized by Effect Audio, a widely known premium cable brand. DD HiFi has launched Janus 2 in two different variants, Standard Edition and Simple Edition. The only difference between both these editions is that one includes a transparent silver-plated OFC MMCX cable while the other features a 0.78mm standard black two-pin cable. It starts at 149$ for the simple edition, check out more details here.
