In their latest collaboration with Hawaiian Bad Boy from Bad Guy Good Audio Reviews comes the Yanyin X HBB Mahina. This is a retuning of Yanyin’s Moonlight model that hopes to ensure greater accuracy and a more substantial bass response. Ensuring this type of response, the Mahina is implementing a 10mm biodynamic diaphragm driver to mimic a sub-bass impact in the extreme lows.
Four American-made Knowles balanced armatures aim to help maintain a neutral midrange with a touch of warmth added for texture. They complete this Tri-brid design with Sonion electrostatic units to achieve an airy treble that avoids harshness. With these parts, the Mahina has a goal of creating a transparent monitor to be enjoyed by music enthusiasts everywhere.
