Gonna be a singolo party soon. Will throw on some impressions of the CKR5 on there too. Those should be interesting as they are supposedly the revisions of the CKM500.

I picked up my singolos this morning before I go to work so I have no chance to listen to them until now.

First impression, out of the box this phones are warmer and more musical than Doppios, the sound is not as crystal clear as their big brother.

Bass on singolos is More punchy,bigger and fuller than Doppios.

Mid on singolos is great it just right not as forward as Doppios it just a half step behind.

Vocal is warm and very intimate.Love it.

Treble is well extended no sign of sibilance at all.

So far I'm very impressed with Singolos this phones are musical and fun,I love them as much as I love my TE-05 and Doppio.

So you gonna' get on that tenore hype? huh? Huh?? HUH??? ;)

My Tenore arrived today (ordered via eBay).  Based on what I've heard from them so far, I'm certain I got a good/non-defective pair (they don't sound 'weird,' bassy, possess any channel imbalance, suffer driver flex, etc).  On that note, I'll just cut to the chase now:

 

These phones are extremely impressive (to my ears).

 

I'll have more after I get more acquainted with these wonderful IEMs.. but coming from the esteemed UERM and JH13 FP (which I've been using daily for for the better part of the past year), the Tenore had me smiling from ear to ear almost immediately.  Their tonal accuracy is truly stunning.  In terms of linearity, it definitely feels cut from the UERM & JH13 'cloth' (in places) so to speak.  In fact, the Tenore's tuning feels almost smack dab in the middle of those two phones (I'll expand on this later).  I've ran the Tenore through my Galaxy S4 (unamped) as well as the NFB-11.32 & Geek Out 1000.. it sounded wonderful through all these rigs.. but the GO1000 was especially enjoyable.  Sinfully smooth.. yet very detailed and spacious.  The Tenore's scale somewhat well, but a dedicated (portable) amp is not needed to enjoy or appreciate their full capabilities.

 

A small request.. I like the fit & feel of the stock tips.. but I sense its slightly tapered/narrow bore is holding back some of the treble extension and air that the Tenore may be capable of.  I'd appreciate recommendations for a wide bore tip that would match the Tenore stock tips' comfort.

 

Even with how far 'budget-fi' has come the last few years, $60 has absolutely no business sounding this refined.  I definitely plan on snapping up another pair (or five.. LOL) to keep and/or gift.

 

Thanks to shotgunshane for bringing these to my attention.. we've got a true 'diamond in the rough' here.. it's an absolute shame if Zero Audio really discontinued these (especially in favor of their more 'colored' family counterparts).

Bunch of budget-fi hype noobs!!! : P

The day is full of suprises. A colleague, who I have allowed to hear the some of the higher end iems over the past two years, was able to acquire a pair of Shure SE846s for like $600. I've been dying to hear these earphones, so he is now returning the favor. I have them in my ears right now. All I can say off the back is this is the Sure earphone I've dreamed about. To me it sounds no different than the SE535 except that it now has great bass. And I mean great sub-bass, nice deep and rich. He has the reference filters in. Mids and treble remind me of the SE535, but the bass is like deep icing on the cake. 

 

 

So are these worth $1K to my ears. Not even close!  Yet, if I could get it for $600 - as he did - I would buy it without a second thought. It would be my dream BA universal earphone at $600.

This is some of the best bass I've ever heard in a universal BA earphone. And it still has those Shure magical mids.

I havent found many upper tier IEMs that have been worth their price, but I think the Shure is.  From fit, style, sound, ability to adjust the sound, packaging, cases, extra cable... everything is impressive.  I am trying out one more IEM and then deciding between that and the 846 as the end of the upper tier road for me.  That being said, I am selling my like new unit right now so I can pay some bills.  Personally, I really feel they dont have a weakness but that doesnt mean its just an average all-arounder either.  The other option I am try is cheaper which is a huge factor for me.  As fun as it has been in the 1k+ territory, I cant have a mortgage payment in my ears while still holding debt.  

 

I also have the tenore coming... sooner or later so that should be fun to see how they stack up and to see if I really appreciate the upper tier IEMs enough to live with the price difference.

congratulations on discovering and owning the SINGULOS and TENORES.  both are

wonderful audio companions which are super values and have exquisite windows into

many types of sound.  I find the Singulos have a wider soundstage and more bass, and 

almost as good MIDS as the spectacular vocals on the Tenores...make sure you burn them

in 200-400 hours or more for true enjoyment...

Do you still feel that the Doppio beat the Tenore? I have the Doppio with me today and it still amazes me.
