Review of Symphonium Titan In-Ear Monitors

Introduction

Symphonium, a popular brand from Singapore, recently launched the “Titan IEM” featuring one dynamic driver and three balanced armature drivers. Equipped with TrueX 3-way crossover and CORE & PHAT technology, the Titan is both developed and manufactured in Singapore.

The Symphonium Titan IEM aims to answer the question: “What makes a great basshead IEM?” Let's dive in and find out.

Design and Build Quality

The Titan’s shell is made of anodized aluminum, while the faceplate is crafted from forged carbon composite material, giving it a robust, tank-like build. The design is simple yet attention-grabbing. The stock cable is custom-made by 25.5AWG Neptune in a 4-wire configuration with OE interchangeable plugs, including 3.5mm and 4.4mm heads. While the cable is good, a thicker cable might be more suitable for this type of IEM.

Comfort and Fit

The medium-sized shells of the Symphonium Titan come with short nozzles, requiring users to experiment with eartips for optimal isolation and fit. While I found the stock eartips satisfactory, many users might need third-party eartips for the best comfort. I wore the Symphonium Titan for 4-5 hours straight without any discomfort or fatigue.

Sound Quality

For this review, I used a HiBy R4 with the Titan’s stock cable and eartips, a source bundle recommended by Symphonium Audio.

Overall Sound

The Symphonium Titan offers a clean, smooth, and bassy sound. It delivers an incredible sub-bass response, warm and textured midrange, and clean, smooth treble. The overall sound is open and holographic with good imaging and a wide soundstage. While you might be drawn in by the bass, you’ll also appreciate the excellent midrange and treble, making it a complete package and an all-rounder IEM with an incredible bass experience.

Source Requirements

The Symphonium Titan requires a powerful source to drive it effectively. I tested it with portable DACs like the Questyle M15, but wasn’t satisfied with the outcome. However, sources like the HiBy R4, Xduoo XD05 BAL2, Mojo 2, or desktop DAC & AMP can bring out the best in the Titan.

Bass

Having tested numerous high-end IEMs, I’ve never encountered anything like the Titan when it comes to bass. The Titan’s bass is massive, rumbling, and powerful without losing clarity. The sub-bass decay is fast and impactful. Tracks like "Narkosis/Spektre" by Plastikman made me feel like a subwoofer was installed in my head. The bass is head-filling without causing fatigue, and it has turned me into a fan of bass-heavy sound.

Midrange

Despite the massive bass, the midrange maintains outstanding clarity, smoothness, and texture for both male and female vocals. This was a pleasant surprise. The Titan handles the midrange with the same authority as its bass. It never sounds muddy or unclear, offering a midrange performance full of emotion and texture.

Treble

The treble response is smooth, clear, and has realistic tonality. I never experienced harshness or sharpness with the Symphonium Titan, maintaining smoothness across the frequency spectrum. Its holographic nature makes you feel like you're sitting in the center of the music arrangement. While the Titan is bass-heavy, it doesn’t compromise on treble detail. Overall, I’m very satisfied with the treble response.

Soundstage & Imaging

The Symphonium Titan presents a 3D holographic soundstage that is wide with good depth and height. The imaging is precise, allowing you to pinpoint details effortlessly.
