DinoTwin is a new company; its trademark was registered in July of 2013.  A quick visit to their webpage www.dinotwin.com reveals multiple broken links, and no phone number or means to initiate direct communication other than fill out an email form.  Regardless, the Dinotwin T2 have garnered many positive reviews on Amazon, so let’s give them a closer look.

The T2 were specifically designed for use during exercise.  Coated both internally and externally with Liquipel, the T2 are sweat resistant, and DinoTwin offers a lifetime warranty against damage due to sweat.  The T2 are designed to fit snuggly inside the ear canals and come with three different sizes of silicone earbud tips to aid finding a good fit.  Ear “hooks” are also included to keep the T2 firmly in your ears.  With the use of the “hooks”, users overwhelmingly agree that the T2 stay in place during even very active exercise such as running or Crossfit.  Weighing in at an unbelievably light 0.46 ounces, users also agree that the DinoTwin T2 feel amazingly lightweight, small, and comfortable.    Coming in Red/Back or Green/White color schemes, the many reviewers note the T2 are stylish and sexy.

Features

The Dinotwin T2 use Bluetooth 4.0 + EDR, the latest Bluetooth protocol and feature a noise canceling microphone.

Performance

Dinotwin claims the battery supports 8 hours of listening or talk time and up to 150 hours of standby time.  Users report a slightly more modest 5-7 hours of use before needing a recharge.

Users are somewhat divided on sound quality.  The T2 does not compare favorably with high end wired earbuds, but most users are very satisfied with the music playback quality.  The midrange and treble are sharp and full, but some users would prefer more bass and some wish the volume could be turned up higher.

Most users are satisfied with the call quality, but some complain the volume must be turned up to hear calls clearly.

Users report minor skipping and cutting out typical with most Bluetooth earbuds, and some claim the range of the T2 is weaker than other products they have used.  The T2 fit snugly in the ear canals and are thus effectively earplugs.  You will not be able to hear annoying external noises, but you will also have to take them out to have conversations with people around you or to hear important sounds.

Customer Comments

Amazon users give the Dinotwin T2 an impressive 4.4 out of 5 stars with nearly 200 reviews.  Users love the style, comfort, and the lightless of the T2 earbuds.  Almost everyone is able to achieve a good fit that stays in place during vigorous exercise.  The packaging, earbuds, and carrying case all look and feel like a premium, high quality product.  While the majority of the reviews are very positive, users have a few complaints as well.  The inline controls are a bit awkward, and while most are pleased with the sound quality, users comparing these to premium wired earbuds in the same price range are disappointed.

Pros

  • Excellent fit, stay in place
  • Stylish
  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • Premium look and feel

Cons

DinoTwin is a new, relatively unknown company; its webpage does not inspire confidence.

Summary

The DinoTwin T2 are a great choice for runners or Crossfitters who want a sealed fit that blocks out external noises (otherwise, the Plantronics Backbeat Fit are a better although more expensive choice).  You are looking for Bluetooth earbuds that are stylish, lightweight, and comfortable, but you do not expect audiophile music playback quality.  Lastly, you are willing to take a risk on a new, unknown company.

    Actually, Soundpeats QY7 is a high quality-price ratio. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Soundpeats-Lightweight-Bluetooth-Headphones-microphone/dp/B00LP6CFEC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1431660116&sr=8-1&keywords=soundpeats
