The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1617

Nope though from Dr Blue PMs to me he describes them as a mix of the basso and the tenors in sound which I kinda predicted..He owns both the singolos and doppios and seems to enjoy both of them.. I have heard or owned all of them except the singolos and the base model. I have no doubts in my mind the Singolos will be right up there with the tenors bassos and the doppios in sound value.

 

So I been selling off a few of my phones lately and had some credit.. Been thinking about them new ATH-CKR10 earphones from AT.. Just ordered.. Should be interesting. Will report on the CKR10 thread and of course on here as well. Look forward to them.

 

Oh and by the way guys. Some of the best tips being the FX850 tips. Newly designed tips from JVC just got released on Amazon Japan.. Costing around $15 a box for 3 pairs I believe in whatever sizes you need.. These JVC tips IMO are the best tips I have ever used even over the UE tips I like to use on just about all my phones.. Worth a look. I just orderd two boxes of them as well.

Any of you guys interested in trading/exchanging eartips?

Just did quick A-B Doppio and Tenore...Tenore really fine for inexpensive iem, wide soundstage, good detailing. Doppio, however, is another thing altogether, open space, fine, uncongested detail (this with Geek Out 1k, listening to hi-rez Grateful Dead American Beauty). Then I put in/on the JVC woodies, 850, WOW! don't think I appreciated them until now, gonna listen to them to lull myself to sleep, night all....(the GO1000 and another recent arrival, the Ray Samuels Emmeline HR-2, are completely changing what I think of many of my phones, not to mention giving me lots of listening pleasure. Associated equipment is ALL,man!)

Pretty good review/comparison here:

Edit: if it weren't for the lack of isolation, I'd be pretty happy with the $40 AKG K403's at the gym. Very unobtrusive look, and they sound pretty great (if you like mid forward/engaging sound).
have comsidered these also, and hd26s. Liked the mikros, but fit was too finnicky for gym.

Wish Zero Audio would make a hybrid, might be best iem ever, and prolly less than $175 too. Hers hoping for the Carbo Ten-Bassios

Oh no doubt. One thing I noticed is that I don't think this is a big company as they seem to throw out a few phones within a year..They seem to take their time releasing new designs and that is actually a good thing..Considering that there is an influx of hybrids in the market..A small company like Zero Audio will consider their own version. Who knows they might have designed and ready to go.. Even if they used the Tenor micro HD and the dynamic of the bassos in one housing they could have one of the best sounding dual dynamics on the market.

I'd buy the hell out of that. Still gutted that my Bassos broke. Good job I have a pair of full size headphones to use whilst I mull over what to buy!

YES, the ZA Singulos have the smoothes of the Tenores and the textures/soundstage of the Doppios.  They are indeed a great sound value and very

pleasant for all types of music.  Lookin forward to our CKR10 notes DS!     I have the RE700 burning in right now also.  out of the box it was horrific, but

after 24 hours of burn in becoming very "musical" in a consumer way right out of iPod splitter, i had to force myself to take it off my head and let the burn continue..a good sign....price is down to a little over 100$ on beach audio.  may be a sleeper if you like ATH house sound....very lightweight and 32 ohm so

designed for playing right out of phones etc.

Glad you are discovering the synergy of different source chains and different phones!  I finally got my GO750 and burned it in  Its very powerful and

has lots of headroom and liveliness to the output.    I agree with DS that it outperforms its price point at the Kickstarter levels, smooth and musical.

Still i listen mostly to my  Digital Renaissance hybrid NOS dac with an output to the Cambridge Audio Model 12 preamp headphone amp and ON 1

wooden phones. true reference hi fi output chain of sound...  i wish someone would make a NOS nonupsampling dac that doesn't need external power like the Muse 1543 does need....as good as the Geek is its still an oversampling chip with a "digital" sound to it, while the NOS units have a much more

analogue sound....trying to get my buddy Ben at MOJO Audio to build me a portable NOS dac, but his units start at 2500$ in full size form so its unlikely..

Maybe Ray Samuels could do it....NOS (non oversampling)  dacs have a less fatiguing and more brain friendly sound through them....the D42 IBasso

Mambo comes close....cause its limited to 48 hz output ceiling...

More Tenore impressions:

 

Inks:  "The Tenores are much better than the Bassos IMO and most users prefer the Tenores from what I've read. The bass is just right. I was actually going to complain a bit that the bass may be lacking a bit but went back to Sony Hybrids and definitely do not think so anymore. Any less will be lacking and any more would just darken them for no reason.

These are hard to fault, maybe I would prefer a bit more bass body, but this is a micro driver and for this type of IEM, the bass is as great as it can get and it's definitely better bass than any BA and MAs that I've heard."

 

 

Lexus91:  "Found this gem last week when looking around an audio store (the tenore i mean). Trying stuff here and there and none took my attention, until the clerk asked me to try these baby.

 

First impression "damn these sound gorgeous". The sound does feels "expensive" for me. When the clerk told me that it cost "only" $70 it completely took me by surprise. I expect somewhere around $150-200 for the sound. The overall sound signature, the amazing vocals, treble's is pretty accurate not too bright and not hurtin my ear. And the bass,, It might not be much in quantity but I believe the quality is very good. 

 

The staging is also really really wide. I almost cannot find any complaints for the price tag. I even prefer them over some other more expensive IEM.

 

I finally decided to buy them today for closer look. I'm trying to compare them to my UE11, it is not surprising that it lacks the amazing sub bass punch of the UE 11 (the price tag and number of driver simply don't lie). The details was also lacking compared to UE11, but I think its still fine. The tuning and presentation is just amazing on the Tenores. The sound stage of the tenores also wider and deeper.

 

UE 11 has the wow factor and i loved them, but recently because of my TH600 and PHVI listening to them feels so suffocating because of the sound stage. with the Tenore's I don't feel so... I might be biased because its so fun to find an amazing price to performance ratio earphone though :D... but yeah love the tenore"

Ok, finally got to hear fx850 with the dx90. DS Is right, it is magical.

Do you wear the FX850s straight down? If so, how is the comfort?

Haven't got too much to compare Geek to... Should use Peachtree DA one of these days, had headphone amp, but when I'm there I prefer to use speakers (besides, I'm in the middle of source component meltdown)
