An orchestra on the go

The precision-engineered front aluminum housing delivers accurate high frequency reproduction. Offered in a rich Silver Cherry or Black Chocolate finish, every pair comes with a cotton carrying pouch, and four sets of ear fittings to ensure a perfect fit.
Delivering deep, precise bass, a warm midrange, and clear highs. The comfort and sound signature of the ts02 makes it a great headphone for extended listening.

Last year, I purchased thinksound's ts01 earphones. The first set I received were faulty, as the bonding glue holding the plastic to the wood came undone and the wires inside were mangled. After emailing customer service, I received a prompt reply from President and CEO Aaron Fournier. I was issued a new pair, within days, as well as a box and shipping label with which to send back the defective pair.
Following the initial break-in period typical of a new pair of headphones, I came to love the ts01 and found myself entirely unable to listen to any other in-ear headphones. After four months, however, the bond on one earphone failed again, so once more I invoked my warranty. Within hours, Director of Operations Ray Fournier informed me that not only would he replace my headphones, but also upgrade the pair with thinksound's newest model, the ts02. Upon arrival, I eagerly tore open the box and noticed that thinksound had improved the integrity of its packaging, snugly fitting the earphones into dense corrugated cardboard, for delightfully infallible protection. Recent thinksound packaging is 100% biodegradable*, which contributes substantially to the company's green image. Upon inspecting my newly obtained treasure, I realized the earphones looked very similar to the ts01, only that each wooden hull of the earphones was faceted on the sides and the thinksound insignia was emblazoned on the headphone jack (which is straight, not right-angled) and rear of the hulls. The appearance was overall an improvement on an already appealing design.Read more ›
My favorite features are: (1) the headphones are designed with sustainable materials in mind, but without sacrificing function or form; and (2) they come with a variety of earbud sizes, guaranteeing a great fit. Firstly, the "green" almost-no-plastic product really appeals to me. I'm an engineer, and love seeing creative approaches to packaging and design like this -- so well done, Thinksound. Secondly, the different earbud adapters are a dream come true. Most earbuds (such as the ones included with my iPod, or the typical $9.99 pair at Walmart) are one size only, and simply don't fit my ears. They fall out, they hurt, they sound funny, and it's just a hassle. But these fit me perfectly! (And, in the unlikely event my spouse borrows them, he would be able to swap the fittings for his own ears.)
Various reviews for other Thinksound products mention things like cable noise, "tinny" sound quality, or insufficient base. Hey, I'm not an ultra-audiophile; I just want to be able to clearly hear my music/radio without bothering people around me. For my ears, the Thinksound TS02 earbuds are exactly what I want. I hear my music, and I don't hear the world around me. (Very useful for working out at the gym, for studying in the library, for trying to block out the sound of my kids watching Sponge Bob while I want to read...)
Thinksound has excellent customer service, responding quickly to questions or problems. The company CEO answers blog reviews and Amazon reviews personally. My email to Thinksound was answered in under an hour (on a WEEKEND).Read more ›
What I hear: If you're a vocal music lover, this is the headphone for you, as they are designed for warm midrange sounds. Opera, Broadway musicals, Katie Melua all sound amazing. Additionally these work great for string instruments, plucked or played with a bow. What this headset cannot do is satisfy bassheads--a small 8mm driver just isn't going to do the job. The bass is there but its hardly overpowering. So for those looking for bass, you might just have to try the ts-01 (formerly Thunder).
Compared to Thinksound Rain: the Rains are one of the original models that came out from the company, and were designed with classical music and accuracy in mind. When I reviewed them, I said they work great for classical and movie soundtrack music--like they were designed to. When I compare the Rains to the ts-02, I find that the ts-02 have a definite treble boost compared to the Rain. Its not jarring, but there. The ts-02 is definitely brighter than the Rains, which works better on a wider genre of music. This was exactly the purpose of the ts-02 and the company has once again made a very nice IEM for the environmentally conscious consumer.

Eventually fell apart. They sounded good and looked cool though. Spend your money on similarly priced name brands, like Shure, Audio-Technica, AKG, etc.Published 13 days ago by Russell Harrison
