The more I listen to Tomahawk the less happy I am. There is definitely something wrong with them. There is absolutely no way this is what others liked. $5 dollars Monk's are way more pleasant. Should I contact the seller?

try to describe what you are hearing and what exactly you don't like about them. maybe someone with a pair could help :)

If you scan a few pages back, you'll find as many people that are disappointed with the Tomahawks as the there are people praising them. They are the ultimate earbud water divider, similar to the Havi B3 Pro1 of the IEM community.

Well, probably you just don't like the signature of Tomahawk's, but for my experience with this specific earbud you can check those things:

 

1) The "coke bottles" are threaded, then if it isn't firm/right fit could add more air and change the sound signature drastically, check it!
 

2) Fit. If your ears are small like in my case, they won't get the correct fit or sound with mids very forward, try fit the tomahawk's like CIEMs

 

3) If you're hearing something like a "Bzzzz" in low frequencies the driver has issues and you should contact the seller asking for a replacement pair.

The Tomahawks have pretty much the opposite sound signature of the Monks. I personally didn`t like the Monks at all and loved the Tomahawks, but after some adjustment, the Monks sound fine. In stark comparison perhaps they sound thin, bright and metallic, but give them some time and they should sound detailed with plenty of clarity.

I have been wondering for a while since I saw some philips sports earbuds, that look like apple eapods but are normal earbuds with a silicone cover that directs sound to the ear canal, if there were any covers for sale...

 

I found some...

 

jbl/yurbuds replacement covers

 

and

 

some no name silicone earbud covers

 

has anyone had any experience with some thing like these?

 

will order the no name ones, I know that they sell them for almost a different reason, I wonder how will they affect the sound, perhaps the seal will boost the mid bass too much, same as apple earpods when pushed in your ears...

 

does anyone know of any other types of silicone based covers that would also direct sound in the ear?

The most noticable disturbing sound is the treble. Sometimes peaky and harsh. It's okay for metal genre, but for other song especially vocal oriented, sometimes unforgivable.
For me, tomahawk still got a position on my top 10 and best price to performance. But i understand if someone really dislike it and others praise it. Segmented bud like Yuin pk1

Would probably be best to check with Lee if that's legit or not.

Anybody else use their tomahawk as over ear? I use it over ear exclusively. This way I can place it in 3 different position.
1. Driver upwards 45°. The smoothest and balance sound even with sibilance prone track. Ie most Queen track,
2. Somewhat 90°. Warmest sound
3. 45°-60° downwards. Brightest of all and cam be sibilant.

All using original full foam for the best IMO.

Question: how does everyone here store their earbuds?

post #5760 of 14859

I have a larger case now and not all of these earbuds, but this will give you an idea what I use.
