 I agree. The fiio amps are all over the place in noise, frequency response, etc. The JDS amps are excellent, very reference amps for the price.
This thread is too much of a tease. I need to go away for a month. haha
 I don't mean uneven like dips and peaks. i mean uneven as in the bass didn't sound like it was in line with the rest of the spectrum in terms of level. Sort of like a bassier tenore, how it might only have been the bass boosted in a linear fashion, but the non-bassy sounded more "in line" with the overall spectrum. But with the gr07 it was more "like a portion of the bass" as I said, because the bass wasn't boosted in such a wide curve like the tenore, where it made the...
 I agree. I felt the mids/upper mids of the gr07 mkII to be pretty open and transparent in a sense, but then the treble has a peakiness I didn't like and the bass seemed uneven to me. It wasn't super bassy or peaky, but it was like a portion of the bass was just a bit much. But it still sounded god. I'm still looking for er4s, red filter, mid to treble, with a perfect low end to low mids...

I use my leatherman pliers (seriously). I've taken out the er4s triple-flange tips, a pfe112 tip and another er4s tip. haha Not too bad, just need to carefully grab the tip and not your ear and then squeeze hard and pull it out gently.   On another note, I wear my er4s pretty deep as expected, securely in the ear. I fell asleep with them in my ears two nights ago and woke up with them out of my ears. That's scary. I can't even imagine someone yanking them out of my ears,...
 Yeah, the tenore is beautiful, but lacks transparency of the er4s. The mh1 is superb, but has some excess bass and slightly less linear treble, but still very excellent. The kc06 is more on the v-shape end of things, but still sounds up there with the other two. However, as much as I love, and use, them all - I've found my way back in a circle to the er4s. It's the best i've ever heard so far. It's just painful to my ears physically sometimes. Such a drag. And there is a...
 Do you hear the tenore's treble as gently subdued in the 6-8khz region? I find that where it lacks crispness. But it lends itself to the super smooth sound as well... I prefer the perfectly neutral myself, but none have achieved it like the hd600 or something. Close but not as good. I'm going to cry if i get these and they are good as you say they are and then I can't buy them for a year! :-P I'm already set on buying a pair if they are good.
So here's the deal. As I discussed previously, using a bit of tip material to act as a vent just didn't work for me. Altered the sound way too much. However, the idea is sound. So I started experimenting with different materials to find something that doesn't change the sound, but allows me to prevent a strong vacuum seal, making it easier to fit them quickly and consistently.   Ready for this? No joke. Dental tape. The wider floss. Specifically this...
 If you want a similar sound to the pfe112, the zero audio tenore isn't far off if you get a pair that has more neutral bass. otherwise, some sets vary in the bass and you might get a slightly bassier pair that is still very linear in the treble. For a consistent sound, the kc06 by ostry is at least in the same vein as the pfe112. A bit darker, but really no less detailed. I might even prefer it. Not sure though. Both are very neutral-ish thought and the ostry is only $50....
