Yep, will do. I must've easily had over 1000 hours into my Carbo Bassos since I got them (May 2013)

I wouldn't really call this a discovery (of a certain product) but I find it really enjoyable to put one side of an IEM in my ear, with the speakers on at the same time.

I can't really describe the sound but it just feels so amazing. Like using my FiiO X3, i use the headphone out to my IEM and line out to my A5+  

Has anyone tried this ? :P

 

I know the soundstaging would be off the original recording, but it allows for a clear, emphasised vocals from the IEM whilst allowing for great bass and surrounding sound stage for instruments from the speakers
Let me know if you guys try this

Yes the Doppios are different.  they are capable of peering into the structure of sound and music in a unique way that communicates with the listener emotionally and

sonically.  at 125$ they are a steal.  plus they sound great  right out of a cell phone or tablet.

In japan its cheaper, they are purchasing that version

Price/performance gets more difficult to assess as things get more expensive. A killer $50 headphone is a killer deal, but is a $500 10 times better? Generally, diminishing returns kick in as the gear becomes more expensive (little improvements cost more and more to achieve). The Tenores have nothing to be ashamed of at the price range, but the Doppio is much better, listening to them both back to back this morning, easy call. Are they worth 5 times more green? Are they worth three times more green? Is it easy being green? Questions to ponder...but for now, finished morning work, back home, pick up the crew, go see the Woody Allen show on Broadway (feel like a tourist, maybe we'll go see the Empire State Building or the Statue of Liberty), pull out old headphones later, everything old is new again!!!!

People do that with a subwoofer/speakers + open headphones

Funny, but I thought the Doppio was awful when I first heard it (search, my initial impressions are on this thread somewhere). I thought our dear bud Dsnuts led me astray, and I told him that. I hear no bass to speak of and the sound was just drab. Now, I believe in burn-in, but not so much for balanced armatures. But Ds told me to be patient and burn them in. He was insistent that the sound would blossom and transform. I can't deny that I doubted Ds this time, but he was right. After a few days of burn-in, the bass (especially sub bass) came from out of nowhere so it seems. Now, the are neutral earphones, but the bass is deep and rich for a dual BA (don't look for basshead level bass like in the 1964 EARS-Q). But as dr.bluenewmexico so eloquently, the Doppio does seem to peel off layers of distortion and let's you see (hear) the music in a very HD clear manner. Before the transformation, I thought no BA dual earphone sounded better than the TDK BA200, but the Doppio blow those away now. I also think the Doppio beats my long time beloved W4 in transparency and clarity. It beats the TF10 and the UE900 (yes, I know these are four-BA earphones). So if the Tenore can come even a little close to the Doppio it will be something special. I'll know early next week (coming in with the CKR-9).

I have HOPE that i will sometime soon have  a Heaven V and the Pandora HOPE VI to listen to like EricP  when I'm not

listening to the On-1s and Doppios.!!

 

I am still impressed by late night Pandora listening on the ATH RE700s.  especially for EDM and rock, they sizzle and beat

and make streamed music sound oh so right....i think they a real ATH discovery for use out of a tablet late at night....

post #24821 of 33052
OK, so what's the best one can do on these Pandora Hope VI ($700-800 + on eBay, I believe)?
If one is in NY, wants to see a fun show, good music, Bullets Over Broadway was fun, lots of pop/jazz from the 20's and 30's(when they overlapped much), silly/funny, fine performers. A non-headphone recommendation.

And if I didn't recently get the uber-expensive Tenores, I would have bought one lol. What's a Zero Audio fan to do? But damnit, I want to hear those PH VI's someday as well! Dammit!!! :smile:
