Tangzu is a new brand established in 2021 by an experienced team in the audio industry. The brand's first product, Yuan Li, and the latest IEM, Tangzu Wan'er S.G, showcase their expertise. In this review, we delve deep into the Tangzu Wan'er S.G IEMs to see if they are the new king for audiophiles at the budget range of Rs. 2000/-.
Design and Build Quality
The Tangzu Wan'er S.G IEMs are the most beautiful earphones in their price range. The faceplate is a glossy black color with classic gold design patterns, and the IEM shell is transparent black-colored hard material. The cable is silver-plated copper material with a transparent soft outer sleeve. The overall attention to detail is quite unusual at this budget range, making them a well-made product.
Comfort and Fit
The IEM shell is lightweight, making it comfortable to wear for long hours of music listening sessions. The fit provides decent passive noise isolation. Overall, the comfort and fit experience is great.
The Tangzu Wan'er S.G IEMs deliver warm, smooth, detailed, and immersive sound, which is most appealing to Indian audiophiles. The IEMs provide a decent soundstage, good imaging, and layering. They have the most natural and realistic tone and go well with Indian and Western music.
The bass is powerful but not overly done, making it pleasant to listen to bass-heavy tracks without getting boomy and muddy. In tracks like "Deep" by Marian Hill, you can feel the sub-bass hitting hard, pushing some vibration into your ears.
The midrange is perfectly tuned on the Tangzu Wan'er S.G IEMs, sounding realistic and natural. The placement of the midrange is in the middle of everything, so you never feel like the IEMs are just mid-centric. In tracks like "Dewak Kalji Re" by Ajay Gogavle, you can feel the weight and body to Ajay sir's voice. In "O Sanam" by Lucky Ali, you can feel the thinness and swiftness in his voice.
The treble is clear, fast, and layered. In tracks like "Guzaarish" by KK & Shail Hada, you can hear each instrument playing together, but you can still recognize each one due to the clear and layered quality. The treble is not sharp or harsh and has enough clarity to enjoy it.
The soundstage is not so wide, so you feel everything is playing in your near or around you. It has high and depth, but width is missing, so you feel everything is playing in a small room.
The imaging and layering are decent for the price, with no complaints.
The microphone on the Tangzu Wan'er S.G is decent for making calls, playing games, and recording indoors. The microphone is located on the cable near the chin, which is ideal for taking calls without having to take off the earphones. The mic captures clear audio and does a decent job of noise cancellation, although it may pick up some background noise in noisy environments.
Value and Competition
At around Rs. 2,000, the Tangzu Wan'er S.G faces stiff competition from other brands in the budget IEM segment. However, the Tangzu Wan'er S.G stands out from the crowd with its exceptional sound quality and build. It's definitely worth investing in Tangzu Wan'er S.G earphones for the asking price of Rs. 2,090 for the microphone version, if you're looking for warm, immersive sound with excellent build quality.
