Given the nature of the product I’m reviewing, I’ll be keeping this short and sweet. Brainwavz has brought us a pretty solid offering, and to my knowledge, is the first comprehensive IEM hangar we’ve seen here on Head-Fi.

The Krudul Duo is not just one, but two different IEM hangars, thus the name Krudul Duo. While it’s hard to tell in the pictures, the Duo is actually made from a solid and cool-feeling matte metal. On the back of each you will find a really powerful adhesive, strong enough to ensure the Duo can survive a direct punch (though your knuckles might not fare as well). How do I know? Well, I tested it out. Don’t try it, it hurt.
But why are there two hangars? Well, one is intended to be stuck to the back of your monitor, while the other is for being stuck to the wall. I’ve placed mine (stupidly) on my dorm’s painted wall, and thing I might tear off some paint when I try to remove it. Users beware.
So while the Duo does it’s job very well, looks good, and feels premium while doing it, it could definitely use a less powerful adhesive, or at least a release mechanism for when you want to move the Duo around. I for one am glad I got the change to use the duo, dorm paint fee and all.
