Design & Build Quality
DUNU Titan 1es housing is made with metal as well. However, inner part is sturdy plastic. But hey, it is much more lighter in this case. And it is using high purity OFC wire now from body through Y-splitter until 90° angled plug. As usual, there is cable cinch that can fit right into the Y-splitter when not in use. And a handy rubber cable tie is there to well keep Titan 1es. There is only 1 vent hole near nozzle at the earpiece body unlike 11 vent holes on Titan 1. Another one at the back near cable. There are 3 colours to choose this round. Mine is metallic red and another two are black and sliver. Yes, just select the one that match your taste.
