My eyes have been on the Tenores for quite some while, but I'll wait till the comparison to the KC06A before I pull the trigger.

Tenores vs doppios??
post #24228 of 25884
I vote Tenore because it's not as clinical, not as revealing and more musical.

Very initial impressions of the 1Plus2

One of the fullest headphone-sounding universal earphones I've ever heard (if not the fullest). Well, let me pull back some. I've heard others as full sounding (ASG-2), but not with this level of clarity and transparency. The bass is not the deepest I've heard (the original 1964-Q would shake your eardrums), but it's hard to beat its punch and timbre. Very natural sounding. I think this is shaping up to be the best hybrid earphone I've ever heard. Vocals are very dynamic sounding. This iem is very smooth and refined

I'm sorry for your wallet that you are feeling this way!

Don't be waynes world. My wallet bought I new iMac and ran away with it. So it's safe. I'm glad I'm hearing it, but it won't be on my "to buy" list.

ShotGunShane prefers Tenore (he said Doppio has less bass) and I think Drblue prefers Doppio

I had basso and doppios. Had to sell doppios while back due to car repairs. Was looking at a secondary pair of quality and budget friendly iems. Tried im70s today but returning as I ordered off amazon just to try really. Can be had for $30 less if I import from tenso/amazon jp. Thought about bassos again, but I think ill give tenores a shot.

Main phones are fx850. Im interested in the shure 846 eventially, and the aurisonics rockets look interesting too. Need a pair of on/over ears too, considering cheap pair of amperiors.

I've never heard the Tenore, but the Doppio has plenty of bass (sub bass too). Then again, the Tenore is a dynamic.

I have the Doppio and the Tenore, haven't directly compared them 1:1 listing session wise, but prefer the Doppio. I seem to be one of the few who minds the slightlyy washed out tone color of the Tenore (DS commented on this as well somewhere in this mega-thread, but it didn't bother him as much). Really enjoy those Doppios.

Thread Starter 

Tenors are perfect for casual every day use vs the more technical revealing nature of the Doppios and it's efficiency means there has to be synergistic pairing for the Doppios to truly shine.. The very low .47 Ohm out of the Geek out for example pairs amazing with the Doppios. I noticed on some of my other sources the Doppios can sound harsh simply because it does not match up to the low sensitivity of the phones. Once paired with the right source however the Doppios are definitely Zero Audios flagship earphones for a reason.

 

I will even say they hang in there against my IM03 on the DX90 even. Which was a big surprise to me.. The Doppios is more of an analytical sound more so than most that are on this thread so they will not find favor from guys looking for a more bass heavy musical type sound signature..Value for the money will be with the Bassos and Tenors over the Doppios but the Doppios as of late has been selling for less than $130..Singolos hovering around $85ish. All the Zero Audio phones are a fantastic bargains..Not too many phones throw out the sounds they do for the price.

Maybe the Beyer T51P? I just got them, and I haven't tried these at the gym yet, but they might be pretty good there (great isolation, great comfort, great SQ, not completely dorky looking, durable blah blah). On sale for $179 (down from $339):

Pretty good review/comparison here:

Edit: if it weren't for the lack of isolation, I'd be pretty happy with the $40 AKG K403's at the gym. Very unobtrusive look, and they sound pretty great (if you like mid forward/engaging sound).
