Introduction

iBasso is a Chinese brand that is known for their digital audio players (DAPS). They create their first iem in the IT03, a triple hybrid with a popular configuration of 2 Balanced Armature and 1 Dynamic. Recently, they release the IT01 that is a single dynamic driver iem. I would like to thank iBasso for providing the IT01 as a review unit. At the moment, you can purchase the IT01 from iBasso or Penon Audio .
