TNAGZU vs HB Wu Heyday design

Design

The Wu Heyday earphones maintain their recognizable shape but have undergone a transformation with the incorporation of CNC aluminium and a polished dark grey finish. This upgrade not only adds a more premium feel but also increases the weight of the earphones. The faceplates feature the traditional Chinese auspicious cloud pattern, reminiscent of the Zetian Wu model.

Like its predecessor, the Wu Heyday is designed for comfort and a secure fit. The new aluminium shells also provide improved passive noise isolation. The new silver-plated copper cable, now in blue colour, offers a sleek and attractive look. The cable also features a modular 3-in-1 termination and minimal microphonics.

Verdict

The TANGZU x HBB Wu Heyday is a high-quality planar in-ear monitor (IEM) that boasts durable metal shells and a modular cable. Compared to the original Zetian Wu, the Heyday offers a more dynamic and engaging sound signature that can rival other IEMs in its price range.

While the Heyday is a great choice for those who are sensitive to treble, it may not provide the same level of bite and energy that other listeners prefer. Overall, if you’re looking for a smooth and balanced sound, the TANGZU x HBB Wu Heyday is definitely worth considering.
