“The Kinera Idun Golden is one of the most quality releases from the Kinera brand lately. It’s a fantastic performer for the money, with an audiophile approach in sound. I enjoyed this IEM very much with its precise, on-point tuning. This is one of the smoothest and well balanced hybrid IEMs that you can find in the entry-level market today. Since it performs better than the Shozy Rouge and Shozy Form 1.4, I remove those two from our Best Universal IEMs list and add the Idun Golden. A much-deserved entry to the list. It’s one of those rare incidents that I found a high-level IEM tuning in an entry-level IEM.”

“The Kinera IDUN Golden is a mildly bright yet pretty natural and balanced sounding In-Ear Monitor that is ideal for longer listening periods, since neither the bass nor the treble range sounds overly emphasized.The lower frequency shows pretty clean, moderate deep and fairly controlled tuning, while the midrange is the star of the show, which is produced in a very natural and balanced manner that shows a nicely touch of warmness. The treble range on the other is mildly pronounced, pretty smooth yet detailed, and offers a sufficient level of airiness and extension.”

“All has been said, it is clear Kinera Idun Golden is not a jack of all trade. Idun Golden is a device intended to convey musical experiences for music enjoyment, Idun Golden excels with tonal and timbre balance that is pleasurable as it is natural sounding. Not a device to be used to analyze sound. From this perspective, I have found that Idun Golden is an IEM that takes time to develop a connection to the user. It does not have that WOW element from the get-go. But with regular usage, the elegance of subtleties will then begin to present itself in spades. I appreciate Idun Golden for being highly organic and smooth, I appreciate the musical enjoyment that can be had for extended usage, I have spent over 6 hours in single sessions using Idun Golden regularly. Despite being not a highly analytical device, I think the time I spent with my Idun Golden proved that the charm of the Goddess of Rejuvenation, Iduna, has captured my heart.”

"I would pick Idun 2 over the much more expensive Norn. Idun 2's tuning is uncommon but nicely implemented. It has a W shaped tuning that gives you a toe-tapping experience."

"Idun, the latest offering from the house of Kinera is a well rounded neutral package. The neutral heads out there! Its your item to be picked up! The Idun has that nice neutral sound profile yet with that engaging and lively sound experience and also don’t forget that this has one of the best designed faceplates! The bass being on the neutral side thus provides some excellent clarity, separation and technical aspect. The mid range is another string aspect of this earphone where it has that unique natural tonality with precise timbre. The staging being wide enough does provide that spacious and grand presentation. The treble has a very good extension thus providing some great shimmer and brilliance in the top end. The design is very gorgeous where that faceplate looks stunning and it's definitely an eye -catching figure for sure. The golden coloured tree branches alongside that colourful gem in the center with cool white and blue tint gives the earpiece a stunning look overall. Overall the Idun is a neutral masterpiece with striking design language and TRANSPARENT SOUND out there in the market!."

"The Idun priced at 169 USD is well built beautiful looking IEM that comes with premium accessories and sounds pretty good too. The signature is fairly inoffensive and performs well enough for its price. I recommend it for any genres except for busy tracks where a little more air would have helped."

"When Idun was on its way, I did not expect much. I am quite impressed by how much it punches way above its asking price. If you have been following me, I am somewhere in between being an audiophile and a musician. Both roles has different needs and factors that I look for in an audio gear. Idun delivered its purpose and I am very much happy with this Kinera product, being it the first, moreover for its capability for me as a musician. It is very constructive on my end. The sound signature is not for everyone. Bass heads, stay away from this one. Treble heads might still want more out of this. But if you are into details, separation, imaging and adequate driver speed, with tone and timbre that is not compromised, the Idun is worthy of your collection. I have a personal search for neutrality, and I can safely say that Idun is not yet there. Not with the league such as the Etymotics when it comes to neutrality. But Idun gave me a sweet prelude to that search. My search is not yet over, but I am glad that Idun gave me the right direction for that. So if you are a mature listener, and the joy of hearing what every element is doing in a track, giving you a clean, close neutral sound that does not give you compromised tone and timbre, this is definitely for you ."

"The Idun Golden is indeed a entry into a new golden era. It not only displays top tier looks but displays proper realistic tonality. The Idun Golden is able to perform well under most circumstances and will certainly serve very well as a all rounder. It is something I highly recommend. With the current competition, the Idun Golden is certainly a competitive piece especially with the included ACE cable. What a great way to start of 2022! "

"I am really digging the Idun 2.0 Golden. The design isn't just aesthetically beautiful but is perfectly strategized for utmost comfort. It includes different kinds of tips that you can interchange depending on your genre/instrument and some adaptors that you can use on your mixer or audio interface. The accessories and packaging it came with feel really premium. The sound is pretty balanced for me, with the right amount of power, clarity, and resonance. These factors really make me believe that this pair of IEMs are really specially made for musicians like me!"

"Overall, Kinera Idun Golden itself is a good Hybrid IEM, no Hybrid IEM may appear frequency band articulation problems or the difference in timbre between two different sounding principles, the overall as I said earlier dynamic driver to make an auxiliary, the overall presentation or dynamic driver resolution quality style is the main but not boring dry and cold, the tone is mild and not stimulating, no too much superfluous ornamentation is not gaudy, right? Pricing on RMB1099 I think it is still quite competitive, of course, if the red and white shell of this version can give a silver and red mix of cable will be more perfect." ( Translated )

"Finally do a summary, or back to the beginning of the impossible triangle topic, Idun 2.0 is undoubtedly to break the dream of the impossible vision, the actual price is not high, quality is not low, good taste to do the real thing, omnivorous, natural, balanced, real, which I think the Idun 2.0 more accurate definition, recommended to who love Hybrid earphone, as well as RMB 1000 entry want to choose a reliable Equipment friends, it is worth trying."

"The three frequency arrangement is balanced: the low frequency is elegant and clean and the expression of force takes precedence over the creation of atmosphere. The focus is good, the volume is restrained, the dive is appropriate, and the rebound is sharp. The reverberation is slightly enhanced, but especially prudent and restrained, just to help it get rid of the dryness, but also may not be able to call it particularly full; mid-range vocals slightly close to the ear, but not flattering spray face. The high-frequency extension is excellent, so it is transparent, but the brightness is not exaggerated, but it is definitely enough, but it is still difficult to achieve the crystal clear piano overtones."

"The first impression of Kinera Idun 2.0 in terms of aesthetics is that it is very light and very comfortable to use, as a musician it is amazing, the design is spectacular, the live monitoring is great for any kind of musician, can monitor the mixes, very immersive, the live sound is just as amazing, the quality is optimal for the instruments, you can even use for listening to music or recording, in short they are very professional . The bass is great, including I think they are much gentler than the Norn, but they are very punchy and powerful. As you can see, they have very good surround effects and very high clarity, I am in love with the sound."

"The headphones turned out to be quite uncommon in terms of sound and package composition. If, purely theoretically, you subtract the cost of the Kinera Ace cable from the cost of the headphones, and then listen to the headphones, imagining that you got them for the price as if you had no cable, the sound and its perception, in my mind, will blow your third ear. The headphones exhibit a balanced sound, with no distortion or excessive accents, which, in a way, sets them apart from others. Truly, I was not expecting to hear what the Kinera IDUN Golden gave me! I really liked the headphones. It's not just good music, it's a competitor to the planar 7Hz Timeless." ( Translated )

"Besides the charming looks and the box, Kinera did a good job with it while keeping the price around $150 ($169 is its actual price) but hyping it up means coloring the rainbow, Idun Golden is what it is. Thus it is best listened on its own stock cable (although replacing the cable is recommended) and an amplifier is IMO mandatory but not very necessary in the end after all."

"As a result, Kinera Idun Golden 2.0 in-ear 3-driver hybrid earphones impressed me personally with their impressive set, with a lot of ear cushions and modular cable, comfortable fit and, of course, quite amazingly tuned sound: with a slight dip in the bright side, nicely close to us the stage, as well as emphasized sharpness and focus on the details. And all this is sufficiently flavored with the very musical character. I have never seen anything like this before and I have nothing to compare this approach with. Another super successful earphones from the brand widely known in audiophile circles. I did not expect anything else from Kinera and I liked it very much. Well, in combination with the Colorfly CDA M1 DAC they are stunning." ( Translated )
