ericp10, I see that you're into jazz. Do you enjoy listening to it through the e-Q7?

Hello Iponderous. I absolutely love listening to jazz through my Ortos. With the right tips, I have yet to hear anything that offers as much clarity, detail, instrument separation and transparency as the Ortos. Right now, I'm stuck on these orange Xears foam tips. The Ortos focus on quality of bass more than quanity, but with the right tips there is plenty of it. The highs are a bit recessed, but ironically these foam tips are bringing the highs out for me quite a bit more. The mids are perfect, and these tips really focuses in on the vocals and bring out more nuances.

A little bit behind, but not too far, I enjoy the Coppers for jazz, but sound sigs between the two are totally different.

If I recall correctly, iponderous, you like the TF10s quite a bit? I didn't care for the TF10s because of mids and vocals, but I do have to say that the TF10s sounded great with jazz instrumentals from the bass and highs standpoint. But the Ortos give me a more liver presentation of jazz music, even if it's a studio recording... Thanks for the question. Regards.

It means I'm cheap and got them from Japan compared to ALO. I kinda regret it now since I'm too impatient but it will be worth it when I get them.

oh, I thought you bought them from ALO and it was taking a long time.

I hope they come soon.

I've been putting off ordering mine...always best not to jump too quickly I've learned...but they call my name every day.

I hope so too..I'm looking at next week tho since I wasn't careful when buying on amazon and bought from a slow shipper seller. Anyway should be getting to a friends place in a couple days and after that should be good

If it helps you any they were calling my name for like 2-3 weeks thanks to certain people here and I couldn't hold off any longer. The wait isn't too bad really..I'm pretty happy with the CK10 so its not as bad compared to if I only had stock and buying these

Pic of the orto's on my profile, not a good one, but you can see how large the housing is, the tips on them are the senn large double flange, the housing is rather large, only put the pic up for anyone wondering if the fit will be an issue. Not meant to be a good pic....I don't have any camera skills

@greatdane, mine took 3 dqays to get here. Shipped USPS

Thanks for your response ericp10. Yes, I really do enjoy the TF10 for jazz. I mainly listen to small combos and piano trios. I don't listen to much vocal stuff. I prefer the TF10 to my other IEMs for the kind of jazz that I'm into. I regard the TF10 as having a reasonably balanced presentation overall, with slightly recessed mids. The e-Q7 and the Coppers do look promising though.
