^ This is most excellent news! :-)

Btw, if you start going all spastic hype on me, I might just have to get the Tenores as well!

WOW, these things are tiny and are of awesome build quality! biggrin.gif

 

Just plugged them with stock tips into my iPod Classic (6th Gen) + C&C BH combo (LF on) with my latest Trance mix playing, and I have to say these things sound just like I wanted them to. Wider soundstage than my Yamaha EPH-100 which are almost triple the price of the Tenores, treble is nice and pronounced but nowhere near the pain levels. Then again, everyone has different sensitivity to treble. The bass is more rounded off and just as quick as the Yams, which is again what I was hoping for. Damn, these things are engaging!!

 

Again, soundstage is like OMG! My head is in space kinda wide lol basshead.gif

more or less bass than the yamaha's?

More!

 

Its rounded but not boomy, and still as accurate and punchy as the Yamaha's.

That's what I said about them, the soundstage, that is. Have lots of iem's, don't believe I have any with as wide a space as these. I did go out on a limb on the tone color being decreased somewhat, but I was comparing to Westone 4, Sony XBA3, and hadn't had much burn in time (preliminary). I'm playing with tips, burning in, see if it changes (either way, I really like listening to them). Try listening to them head to head with other iem's, curious if you find anything similar.

BTW, listening to Rebooted V2, like it a lot.

Beautiful day, have (unusual) afternoon free time, gotta get off the computer and BIKE!

Yes mate, the wide soundstage is awesome, definitely much more spacey than my Yamaha EPH-100s. Which is brilliant for Trance music of course! biggrin.gif

 

Glad you're enjoying that set, feel free to check out my latest set on my Mixcloud. Tenores sound fabulous with it. http://mixcloud.com/liftedandreas

 

PS. I bet wayne is gonna jump in and say I'm hyping the Tenores haha ph34r.gif

You're making me jealous, Lifted. I think I might end up buying the tenore now and comparing it to the VSD1/385/*Hopefully*Duos

Yes, you are hyping them. Not quite to spastic hype level yet, but I sense it coming lol!

 

Does anyone have both the Basso's and the Tenores?

You should do mate, I suspect it will be quite different considering its a Micro-Dynamic. wink.gif

Hahha, I'll get there. Gonna try the Sony Hybrid tips on them soon, so maybe my head will explode with awesomeness.

 

Btw, I bet you're asking that question coz you wanna be the first one with Bassos and Tenores biggrin.gif

Ha ha - No, I really don't want to be the first! I would like to know specifically though how much better the Tenores might be for trance. I mean, I am loving the Basso's for that trance stuff - love the bass, mids, and I find the treble to be nicely detailed and sparky. But you are the trance expert and are seemingly on the path to loving the Tenores for trance. So I gotta know!

 

Edit: why are you neglecting your zero audio thread? Bad boy!

Ah I see, well so far I haven't seen anyone with both. Don't even try to get me to buy the Bassos as well lmao. I'm tapped for the next 2 months lol redface.gif

 

Btw, the Sony Hybrids fit beautifully and make the Tenores even more comfy. Burn in time I say biggrin.gif

 

Oh and I'm not neglecting the thread mate, no one seems to be replying to my posts so I didin't wanna spam too much lol

2 years for me!

Nice ride...shudda stuck with the PortaPro's, good bass, fun to listen to, was fine with only these many years, then started with this craziness. Anyway, tempted to get the Basso and compare to the tenore, but makes more sense to go for the AT·1K's, or save my yen for the ones at the top of Eric's top of the food chain iem's.maybe I'll be able to retire from posting/buying too (naaaaa!!!!)

Haha, go on. You know you want more micro detail retrieval in my mixes. tongue.gif

Now I'm hyping! biggrin.gif

PS. You also need to check out 00.db - Angels and Demons album. It's awesome on the Tenores! Perfect to test treble detail, I'm using it to burn in the Tenores overnight.

Great impressions guys! You got the curiosity out of me... So how does the Tenore compare against the XBA3 and MH1c?
