NYNE TT

Comes pack­aged with travel ac­ces­sories. Midrange tends to be blan­keted.

HWM (Singapore) - - Test -

Nyne is a rel­a­tively new com­pany that made their big show­ing with last year with an as­sort­ment of docks and por­ta­ble speak­ers. This year, they stream­lined their of­fer­ings to just four prod­ucts. The Nyne Bass, TT, Cruiser and Mini – for big bass, fre­quent fly­ers, bik­ers, and teens re­spec­tively. At least that’s how Nyne would like to mar­ket them.

Mea­sur­ing 10.12 x 6 x 2 inches and weigh­ing in at 0.91kg, it’s larger than most in our lineup, but is cer­tainly slim enough to fit into a cabin bag for overnight trips, and it comes with an as­sort­ment of travel plug adapters and a carry case with shoul­der strap. It also has an in­te­grated noise­can­celling mi­cro­phone al­lows you to make calls through the TT. Its in­ter­nal recharge­able bat­tery can also be used to charge your phone via USB charg­ing, but at just 2,200mAh we don’t re­ally rec­om­mend it; it wouldn’t even be able to fully charge most mod­ern flag­ship smart­phones to­day.

We were ac­tu­ally a lit­tle sur­prised the Nyne TT wasn’t louder given how it was one of the largest speak­ers in the shootout, but other­wise it was one of the bet­ter per­form­ers of the group. Bass was never an is­sue with any of the tracks we tried, and the high notes on tracks like the solo on the Ea­gles’ Ho­tel Cal­i­for­nia rang most pleas­antly.

How­ever, it would ap­pear the TT has a U-shaped sound sig­na­ture as midrange notes are its weak­ness. Cer­tain notes seemed to be slightly dis­torted on our tests, and on Tiesto’s El­e­ments of Life, we found the midrange notes to be a lit­tle blan­keted to­wards the later stages, even break­ing up to­wards the end.
