If you do a search in Amazon for headphones you will see 236,565 choices. At least 1/3 are priced under $100. That’s a lot of options. Beyerdynamic has one more pair of earphones to add to the mix—the DTX 101 iE. Priced at $89.99, the DTX 101 iE looks like much like many other pairs of tiny earphones, but the combination of extremely light weight, good physical design, and excellent finish are intended to make the DTX 101 iE more than merely another me-too product shoehorned into a low price-point.
The DTX 101 iE presents music in a fairly neutral manner without pandering too much to the tizz-BOOM school of hip-hop harmonic balance. Obviously, given the sheer plethora of other earphones around this price, they have stiff competition. But for many prospective owners the DTX 101 iE may offer a Goldilocks’ perfect combination of features and price.
