Oh sh--! Let the hype train start pulling out of the station!!!
I have the V and TE-05 in. I decided to try the TE-05 (fearing it would be my least favorite of the two and two thin in sound for me base on DannyBai's thoughts and this reference sound quality talk - love the RE-400 for example, but bass is too thin for me). I didn't go for the stock tips. I instantly put on the UE900 tips that I had on my H3 (with me today). Decided to hit these nice looking babies with some lossless Miles "So What" out of the DX50.
Well wow!! The sound is quite nicely full to my ears with plenty of bass! Not basshead bass, of course, but a great level of clear bass that is full and rich. I have to say mochill hit the nail on the head too. He described the TE-05's sound as being like a hybrid sound (BA mids and highs with a dynamic driver for the bass). I agree with him. And this has more bass than the Doppios, which I felt opened up nicely with bass. Out of the box I'm very impressed with the TE-05. vlenbo, you're in trouble my friend.
Now I will take a quick listen to the V, but I'm loving the TE-05's sound out of the box!
