The T1-E are the new Tenores :rolleyes:

 

I don't think so. There's bass there, it's just not mind blowing to me. Everyone has a different level of "That's my kind of bass". To give you an idea of where I'm coming from, IMO the  AT WS99's are just about right for bass. Reading reports in the "Appreciation thread" it sounds like these aren't supposed to be known as bass monsters.

 

That being said, the bass that is here on the T1-E is clean with no mud at all. I'm hoping the mids loosen up with some burn-inand lose the "tinny" congested timbre. 

 

One thing I've also noticed is that you'll probably need to do quite a bit of tip rolling to find the right fit.

Right on!  Mine arrived bass-less as well, and sound description is similar to bj above.  At least half a dozen of people already reported either lack of bass or channel imbalance.  Their quality control is not that great...  Still waiting for my replacement.

The site itself is pro enough equivalent to ebay I suppose with its myriad of good for sale out of China and unusually cheap. I fell upon this site because I got caught up on the Topping NX1 hype so I thought why not it is really cheap on this site. So I bought one.

 

6/17/2014
1:53 PM
USD$ 29.95 Full Shipment
140616001903 6/16/2014
1:32 PM
USD$ 34.94 Cancelled  

 

The bottom one was my Topping NX1 order that was made in JUNE 16.. And like most of the guys that ordered on this site was told they don't have any in stock. It is good that they advertise the price and the product as being available but they actually don't so I got a refund about two weeks later. The top one is for a amp called a LINES 970?

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), default quality


Yes that was in June/17th.. Would you guys believe me if I said this amp is finally in NEW YORK of all places. Yes that is right. almost 2 months later and it is actually in the US. So it looks like the Fiio E11K and the Cayin C5, not to mention my 2step and ICAN will have some very stiff competition from this bad boy.. My very first $30 amp.. How will it do. We will see. But first thing first. NEVER EVER BUY FROM DEALSEXTREME!!  The sales rep I just got done chatting with I made a joke about how it has to be some type of record for the longest shipping time. She was serious when she said she has seen one go for half a year.. NICE!. Nothing like ordering cheap stuff out of China to get it half a year later. You buy stuff from Deals and the Extreme part is it takes a GRIP of time to get to you.. There is a catch to everything. The catch here is.. I have never seen a package take 2 months before it is going to even come into my Country. Lol. This amp better be worth the 2 months and my $30 Damn it!

I like mine more than my Topping NX1. It's not exactly a warm amp, though.

PRO:

- Amazing soundstage for an IEM. Seriously, I don't know that I've heard this width and height from an IEM before.
- Well extended and clear treble. 
- Little to no sibilance and an easy to listen to sound without fatigue.

CONS:
- I'm a disappointed at the lack of bass. The way people were talking I was expecting some serious sub-bass action. There's nothing here really wowing me. I was so surprised at the lack of bass I double checked the box to make sure I got the T1-Es and not just the T1.
- There's some tone coloration in the mids. This leads to a bit of a "tinny" sound on some voices and instruments depending on the range.
- Poorly paired with the FIIO E12
- The cable can make selections on capacitive screens. So, if I have my phone's screen on, and the cable taps the screen, the phone thinks I'm making a selection by tapping.

These impressions are all with no burn. For an idea of any "mental burn in" that I may undergo, I've been using my Sony MH1C's almost exclusively as of late.
where did you get yours?

Unlike the original T1, I find the T1-E lack the low bass, but the mid bass are warmer and more present than the previous one. Or maybe the mid bass just outpowered the sub in many ways.

Try wide bore tips that seal good, I can almost guarantee that it will give you the bass you're looking for.

Hope this helps

I don't get it, the sub bass is the best thing about the t1e for me.

Me? My personal preference 'thinks' T1 suits better for me than T1-E since I like bright headphone more than many bassy, warm and laidback pairs.

Oh if that is, you'll find the sub bass in T1 even more amazing.

The specs, the description straight from the company States that the t1e has more extended bass than the first model. I don't think what you are hearing is consistent with their models designs.

Experiment with tips and see if that opinion or impression changes.

I'm not questioning your impressions based on what you're hearing, rather trying to rule out the variables that are causing you to come to this conclusion.

I can say you're yet another victim of "company statement". TTPOD revamped the 2-month-old T1 since the feedback are not as good as expected. People need musical feeling (not sure if I'm using the right words) rather than dry, over-detailed sound of the T1. Thus the T1E rolled out.

 

And by the way, I carefully stated that the above conclusion was based on 'my personal preference'. I like how the T1 cares about low bass, sacrificing some mid bass for detailed mids and highs. The other's feeling about those pairs may vary, and it's my job to spill out MY OWN opinion, not others ;)

 

Peace.
