Well according to the Tenor fan fare the Tenors should be superior on all accounts so your getting your moneys worth and thensome.  Who needs a Hybrid full sized headphone when you have the Tenors.

They were higher priced on Amazon Japan at the time.

 

 

Oh, and the true best earphone bargain for the money right now is the Dita. Yes it's expensive, but not as much as the other earphones in its sonic league.

Sorry guys, it blows everything else out of the water... :wink_face:

 

One day Carlsan, but for right now I'll live through you. More impressions on the Dita sound when you get a chance, please?

So you got them. Congrats. Truth or answer? Glad to hear they stack up.

You already got Soundfreaq's pair Carl? That was fast. I think they're a great bargain. Relatively I guess. SQ that's about on a par with the K3003 at half the price

Carlsan, you need to go ahead and order these earpads before your Hpe VI arrives (mainly for comfort, but also extends the bass a little bit more without effecting the rest of the sound). I have had no uncomfort issues with these pads. And they're really easy to put on the Hope VI (FAD actually has an instructional videos on its website on how to take off the old pads and put on new ones). Happy listening.

Haven't gotten along well with Tenso, have used other services at times to order from Japan, but don't see it available that way. It garbles my passwords and other entries, have had troublein tha past.
OK some Dogwalk Discoveries

First, heard this for the first time in years, played it over and over and over when I first head it. Was called "funk-jazz" at the time, but that was before funk became what it did in the 70's...(Dexter Gordon and Herbie play fabulous solos. Freddie Hubbard's is also great, tinge of sadness noted on Youtube comments, and, I hear what they[re talking about...)


Next, heard That Dog, one of my favorite singers, Petra Haden...you'll either love or hate this, the mix of metal, dissonance, show music is outrageous!!


And again something different, love that shuffle...


nuff for now

Got them today, listened a couple of hours, I'm quite impressed.

They are the "answer", initial impressions are that yes, they do sound quite like the K3003, or more like the K3003 meets the 1plus2, with a bit of the low end of the 334, when called for.  At half the price of all of them.  

 

 

From what I have read, the Truth is even closer to the K3003 as it has that ultra revealing tremble, because of the better cable.

Ericp, I'm on it. Thanks for the advice.

Very curious about that myself. Gonna meet up with Cn11 in the comin days to verify as he ordered the Truth after hearing my Answer. Soundfreaq put in an order for the Truth as well, but he'll have to rely upon auditory memory for his evaluation, which, I find to be really spotty and mostly unreliable. I certainly hope that's true though. The treble is really the only thing holding it back IMO, it's kinda annoying to listen to with stuff like the K3K and FX850 at my disposal. I'd definitely shell out some more if the Truth rectifies that. 

post #24866 of 26086
I found to the Answer to be brighter and thinner than the K3003; if the Truth is brighter than the Answer, then I'd say its closer to 1+2 territory., at least in treble. Surprisingly, my UERM is less bright than both the Answer and K3003.

I don't have any issues with glare on the Answer at all, but I have a pretty high tolerance of bright sigs to begin with. I think the only phones I've owned that wear me out faster than average are the 1p2 and 850, and maybe the Flat-4. I know music cited better weight on the K3K vs. DITA too. Out of the F886 and GO 450, I don't feel that the DITA loses out against the K3K in that respect. I don't know how to account for these differences to be honest.

Kinda wish I'd taken James up on that UERM tour. Seems like everyone I know is taken by that thing. Must be something for you, music and V to drop a cool G on em

I used to be more tolerant of treble glare and peaks. Sometime over the last couple of years, I became very picky and annoyed by unruly treble. Even the JH13 became annoying and I loved that iem. I used to really like the JVC FXT90 too, so I bought the red limited edition about a year ago. Wow, that was a mistake.

I like the treble of the ocharaku flat 4 if that counts 😃
post #24870 of 26086

The Philips Tx2 is widely available around here, but it costs 55 euro's, 10 euro's less than the Fidelio S1. The S2 is 99 euro's. So I'll stick to ordering iems from abroad ;)

 

On another more OT note, somebody on this forum (sorry forgot your name) mentioned the SMSL M2.

Will my budget sets (ZA Tenore are on their way) benefit from such a DAC? I'm currently using my Galaxy S4 as my main music player.

Found this little thing too while researching the Sabre ES9023 dac. It uses the same DAC, but has no amp.

Other than looking much cooler, will my puppies I benefit from a SMSL M2?
