Indeed look forward to the JVC's. Nice thing is they didn't think the FXZ's were better than the FX700 and slotted them below but now even the FX650 is above the old FX700.

 

Buuut...since they take quite a long time to raise other headphones/earphones even 1,000 or 2,000 more on the treble end rating, what did they do to get the FX750/850 from the 6 - 26,000 rating to 6 - 40,000. They must have found some way to extend and smooth what was in the close to sibilant FX700. Deal with the devil perhaps? Geez, I bought the first ever JVC canalphone in 2005, the FX55, and it went up to 25,000. Lower end models went from 23,000 usually to 26,000 or even 27,000 in very recent models. Now, some breakthrough that obliterates what they were able to accomplish before? Intriguing for sure!

Thanks

 

Only able to order them from Logitech, doctorjazz. That's the only place I've been able to find them. Have to go UE900 earphones, then click on where it says supplies for UE 900 (it's tricky, I've had to search hard every time I tried to order these tips).

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!

The V sounds a bit thicker, more refined, and more mids focused as DannyBai told me it would, but the bass is almost equal to my ears. The V may have a tad bit more bass, but not much. The horns are much yummier in the V. Both are detailed, but I think the TE-05 may win in details (I need to burn both in, and expect more changes in the TE-05). From memory, the FI-BA-SS was warmer and fuller in sound than the V, but there's an echo of the FI-BA-SS - to my ears - in the V, although they don't sound anything alike. Yes, I'm loving the V's signature, but I don't know which one I like best yet between the TE-05 and V. Both are fantastic. If the V's bass is deeper, I think more details are in the TE-05's bass (if that makes any sense). 

 

Gosh dang it man!!!

My heart, I can barely restrain my trigger finger!! I have to get the martin logans and cables in here today, then I'll be safe in my order with the fostex...

 

Totally forgot about the fostex comparisons as I was terribly busy today.
 
But once I came back on headfi, I just remembered the excitement I had for eric's impressions.
 
ERIC!! You made it extremely hard for me to not order the fostex!!!
 
Unfortunately, my wallet will die sometime this week because of your comparo and impressions. I am in quite a pickle now...
 
Both iems sound mighty fine, and while I do like the thicker sound signature, hearing that the fostex has more detail has helped my decision...
 
I'm pulling them triggers on the fostex, I'm a dead man, I'm dead!! 

Nice comparisons and impressions eric!  Mochill and danny, you da meng! :beerchug:

Perhaps because they are A) unavailable and B) had the price bumped up 50 per cent before they were even released;)

This. I didn't like the huge markup myself.

Listening to Led Zep through TE-05. Incredible! Stairway to Heaven.
post #21836 of 32875
If they're going to be available through regular sites for about the same price you get them from Japan now (Tenso may make it a bit more expensive), I'd prefer to wait...give impressions a chance to solidify, and the wallet a chance to recover from the recent buying spree.

sooooooo, got the cheap headphones for the pads, tried to put them on over the Mikros pads, ripped in seconds, lol. Just live with them as is, I guess.

glad you and the other person who has tried these are enjoying them smily_headphones1.gif. I started to find the treble a bit hot compared to my K545 and my QC20 but still very enjoyable and great for their price point. I do hope the Rockets are better sonically on top of physical build quality but these will be a great stop gap inn the meantime. For anyone on a strict budget I think these should be seriously considered.

TE-05 isn't thin sounding at all.

How can you say price jumped when Fostex never released an official price. Just our wishful thinking, but aren't overpriced at all. I didn't pay that but these are easily worth $200 or better in sound.
