Zero Audio Carbo Tenore, Ostry KC06 to name two amongst the top for me.

Headphones are not one-size-fits-all. We'll need a little information about your planned usage and the music you like.

I am very analytic when it comes to music. I would prefer BA since it has better fidelity, but the better Ba's cost a lot more than 100 with wxception of Etymotic Research headphones. I am trying to figure out if there would be that kind of sound coming from ones under $100 and if there are would there be any dynamic driver headphones that can perform to that level.

Singolos should do the trick, listen to Doctor blue's suggestions on that.

 

 

However, the tenores should be somewhat analytical too, unless I am mistaken.

Havi B3 pro1? very detail and musical .. wide sound-stage, it's dual dynamic but close to a BA signature.

or this.

 

The kc06 also has great detail, though it is also musical like the havi!

post #24188 of 32858

I wouldn't exactly classify the B3 Pro 1 as having a musical sound signature

post #24189 of 32858
+1 on the B3 Pro 1. UE600 is also very nice and to often overlooked.

I was going to say the same thing.  Add Havi B3 Pro to the list as well.

A lot of new Tenore owners commenting on the Zero Audio thread.  Finally they're getting attention!  The hype never took off because more people were buying the Basso, which, from everyone who has tried both, is inferior except for huge bass boost.

 

Sounds like Waynes World and Jant71 ordered them.  If they like them, train will really pick up steam!

 

These were all posted within the last 24 hours

 

shotgunshane - "Anyway, time to confess-
With the S200 tips, the Tenore is my favorite phone to listen to (Period. Full stop).

Of all the 120+ iems I've owned, loaned and auditioned, it's the most tonally pure to my ears. Certainly not perfect in all respects but tonally I've haven't enjoyed better."

 

 

gnarlsagan- "Must... retain... healthy... skepticism...

These are ridiculous."  

"Guys I haven't felt this way about a new headphone in a long time. The quality of the sound has me laughing, like it's just that surprising. I have goosebumps, which is rare for me. Not to spew pure unadulterated hype, but these should be the most popular phones on head-fi, the ones we've been waiting for all these years. Buying a back-up pair ASAP."  

"The Tenores are so smooth yet incredibly detailed with absolutely phenomenal separation. I'd be surprised if these have any distortion at all. They are probably the clearest phone I've ever heard. And the tonality is so correct I want to give it extra credit."  "The Tenores are definitely more downward sloping than the ZMF MH1 to my ears. Reminds me of the LCD-3 a bit in signature, although I haven't heard those in a while."

 

AzatHead-Fier - "I really like the signature. Quite punchy bass that doesn't lack in quantity unless you are basshead. These little things definitely aren't bass shy. Mids are just perfect. Forward vocals sound very realistic. Treble knows its place. no sibilance, rather energetic and detailed. These are spectacular out of the box."

"I got my mh1c today. And I think that tenores are quite good upgrade over sony. Clarity of tenores is just amazing. Signature remindes me of dba-02. But still I think tenores have overal better sq than dual-ba dba-02. I like details too. I am sure that I notice details in songs which I hadn't captured with hf5 that used to be the most detailed earphones I had ever heard before owning tenores."

 

Idsynchrono_24 - "The Tenore is indeed ridiculous. I was really enjoying the DITA yesterday, and decided to A/B against the Tenore, thinking there'd be some insurmountable gap between the two, but they sound more similar overall than not, and the Tenore more than holds its own. Frankly stunning performance, and the best value in HF-dom at the moment"

"I know that feel. I was floored by how close they got to the DITA last night when I was comparing the two, that's a $35 phone tangling with a $650 one and holding its own. Just nuts. That sort of sound just shouldn't be comin out of something so tiny and inconspicuous. It induces all sorts of uncomfortable feelings related to bang per allocated buck. One gets the feeling that not enough bangs are being doled out relative to the bucks pumped into other pricier sets. Now bring on the hype, the subsequent creepy quoting and unwarranted skepticism from the "Hype appreciation thread"

 

avlad - "Right now I can say that this little phones are the perfect mix that I like with bass extending very low but with the perfect quantity for me, mids and female vocals especially are outstanding and very relaxed, detailed and extended treble that never become sibilant. They are so easy to listen, never becoming offensive or harsh. They really opened up now,  I think I have more than 200 hours and they are sounding much better than incredibly great sound I heard right out of the box already. Make no mistake, this are not bass shy phones and I listen from blues to rock, metal, popo, electronic and trance. Each and every genre is brilliant handled by this gems."

 

HiFlight - "DX90 > Tralucent T1 > Tenore provides a truly breathtaking listening experience. I cannot believe that these inexpensive little guys can play with the best I have ever owned! "
