The treble filter attenuates bass response, making it easier to pick out high notes and resonances. Beside the various tonality it offers, the following are the general T20 performance for other parameters: T20 is best described as fun and comfortable IEM with excellent build quality. It’s the just the shape of the housing itself is horrible imo. The build quality, in one word, is excellent in my opinion. So I ran through my usual medley of other tracks from artists including London Grammar, Angus & Julia Stone, Christina Perri, Gabriella Cilmi, Feist, Florence and the Machine, Lianne La Havas and Norah Jones. There is also the slight rubberised ring between the plug body and tip of the plug – which protects your device (and the plug) from metal on metal scratching, and also accommodates plugging into your average smartphone (with case attached). However, something that could perhaps be improved on is the depth, it wasn’t quite able to keep up with the DN-2000 and as a result, the DN-2000 had a more 3D soundstage. It is probably one of the cleanest sounding midranges from a single dynamic driver IEM. Both are extremely comfortable to wear long term – but the Delta is slightly easier to fit, and the T20 slightly more comfortable. Both vocals and instruments are all very well balanced. I tried with the iPhone 6 and the Xperia Z2 and they sounded really poor, lifeless and quite dull, I would really recommend pairing these with a high end source, because they really need something good to shine. Very good. There are foam ones, standard silicone tips and dual flanged pairs. The T20 is also the more comfortable fit, but once again I prefer DUNUs cable to RHA’s. TWFKs simply are more detailed, but for a dynamic in this price bracket, the T20 is excellent. How does it compare with your Shure 846? The RHA T20 IEM will sit along side (Not Replace) the RHA t10i in their line up. I find myself reaching for the T20 over my other IEMs when I am looking for a bit more of a bass response. Colin Hay’s I Just Don’t Think I’ll Get Over You, https://tidal.com/browse/playlist/04350ebe-1582-4785-9984-ff050d80d2b7, http://www.head-fi.org/t/790030/rha-t20-review-by-mark2410, http://www.head-fi.org/a/brookos-test-tracks, http://www.head-fi.org/a/describing-sound-a-glossary. The T20 has a lot more bass, but the DUNU has more quality of bass presentation. I'm not professionally affiliated with them in any way, and this is my honest opinion on the product. The competition over here is very stiff and I was curious as to see whether it would knock off the DN-2000. So apart from the Y split length, the build quality and attention to detail is excellent. Sometimes the bass guitar tended to dominate – but a touch of EQ would easily tame this. I have received the T20 as well over the weekends. Fixed cable will break eventually but luckily this should be fixed with the new MMCX version. I’ve included a photo of my daughter wearing the T10i from last review – the shells have the same dimensions – and she thought they were “pretty comfortable”. In short, the thing is excellent in every way, in tone, agility, potency are all impeccable. http://www.head-fi.org/t/765549/rha-t20-in-ear-headphone-featuring-dualcoil-driver-technology, http://www.head-fi.org/t/770875/rha-t20-tour-program-reviewers-wanted, My YouTube Review Channel (Check it out and subscribe! It’s not the best I’ve heard – but it is up there. I have to say again that despite that, it’s still the best RHA I’ve had the luxury of trying, and I do prefer T20 over the MA750i. A lot of my music revolves around female vocals – jazz, pop, rock, electronic, or even opera. I also decided to use the treble filter for the review, because I found that it was the more natural sounding filter out of all the three options. Cello is also very well presented, and Zoe Keating’s recordings are sublime with the T20. The rig used for this review are; PC (Foobar-ASIO) / Samsung Note 3 > Chord Hugo > T20 (Reference Filter). The bass is very good with double bass – good timbre and tone. Most of my listening has been done using the Reference filter, and as with any new headphone, a burn in time was required to get familiarized to the sound signature. Arguably the best looking earphones available at present. Build quality goes to the T20, although both are built exceptionally well. Bass is hard, impactful and has excellent extension and texture, but is still well controlled and not very boom with little if any bleed into the midrange. Alt-Rock (Floyd and Porcupine Tree) was very good on detail. I appreciated the selection of foam and rubber tips, but I didn't find the tuning filters particularly useful. Everything sounds sharp and clear without seeming artificial. I can't wait to see what they produce in the future, though. However, their last entry into the mid-range market, the T10 left me wanting a lot more as far as sound went. It is very easy to tell where instruments are even when the stage gets quite crowded.
