I wonder how these Tenores compares with the Vsonics VC02 which Joker values at a perfect 10 here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-284-iems-compared-sony-mh1c-added-06-09-13-p-704/9600#post_9199207

I hadn't really read about the VC02's until just now. It's hard to ignore a 10 value rating from |joker|, that's for sure! So yeah, someone bring on the comparison to the Tenores! Or the VSD1's for that matter.

Well, that's just what all the sub-$100 vsonics have in common - a 10 value rating. It's not just the vc02. Do you wanna bet what will be the VSD1 value rating?

I'm gonna go with 10.1 (I remember now that you like the vsd1's more than the vc02's!).

Some initial impressions:

 

CKS77X has a huge sound.  Stage is ultra deep, I mean ultra deep.  It might give the CKS1000's a run for its money in this department.  Unfortunately, that's about it for comparisons with the flagship.  Bass is monstrous and loose.  I don't remember the CKS77's being this big but it's been awhile since I heard those.  Bass has good mix of sub-bass and mid-bass and it vibrates the eardrums with bass heavy music.  Even on music without big bass, these things bring out the bass.  I honestly can't remember the last basshead earphone with this much crazy bass.  Thankfully the midrange doesn't suffer from the bass.  Like the new generation AT's, the vocals are very present and it doesn't get very sibilant.  Treble has some peaks but nothing bothersome.  There's plenty of sparkle and sounds quite excellent.  These things are gonna need some burn-in so the bass calms down and the treble smoothes out.  

 

Zero Audio Tenores sound smooth right out of the box like the Basso's.  Stage is wide and deep, nice surround sound effect but less than the Basso's.  Bass is punchy and reaches almost as deep as the Basso's but less in quantity.  Tenore's do have punchier bass.  Midrange is close call but the Basso's are slightly more forward sounding to me but the Tenore's are smoother.  I think the less space makes the Tenore's more intimate sounding.  Treble sounds pretty much the same also but the bigger stage of the Basso's allows for better instrument separation.  It seems they are basically tuned the same for the most part but the Basso's bigger housing and bigger driver allows for more air and bigger bass.  Both earphones are balanced nicely but the Tenore's are more intimate and doesn't have as big of a "wow" factor as the Basso's.  

 

I'll report back on both after some burn.

Nice Danny.. You know as good as these Zero Audios are I can't wait to try them new dual BA phones that will be coming out. As per the CKS77X. It is going to be an interesting comparo against the older CKS77, XB90EX, CKS1000..

 

I was mentioning to Danny here that it is interesting to me that the CKS77X is using pretty much the same design of the older CKS77s. A single air chamber but a big one. One aspect of the CKS77 I love is how deep they sound..It will be interesting to hear how they turn out after burn in. If the bass tightens out and treble smooths out those should be very nice..I look forward to my girly white pair.
