I'll just answer this for IEM. He said that the mids sounded recessed in comparison to the H1. You quoted his post in which he said the mids on the IEP were balanced with the other frequencies; IIRC he described the DN1K the same way. By this comparison we can establish that the DN1K & IEP are balanced, almost flat, to his ears while the H1 are mid & bass forward with relaxed treble. Kind-of like a AT phone but AT is more balance treble and not relaxed.

It's detailed and present, but doesn't have much sub bass extension, and more slight mid bass hump.  Mids are ever so slightly recessed, but nothing to write home to complain about. It was also the LOUDEST 'phone. On volume 6, I had to turn it down to 5 or 4 as to not overwhelm my hearing.

+1 for what Vain III said. That was exactly the comparison and perception. As for that second quote, that was my commenting on the DUNU as I was listening to them. That was not in the context of comparison or any A/B'ing, so yes, as I was reveling in the DUNU at that moment, they were fantastically awesome and still are. High class. Was listening to them before bed, after spending a few hours with the H1.

The H1 are a very mid forward IEM. The sound signature, if I must find a comparison, would be closest to the TDK BA-200, but with the treble extension a bit better and clearer, but it has that warm, smooth, almost dark feel. That's the SS that I prefer the most. I guess that's from years of Sennheiser devotion?

I could understand if both models at least were built on the same technology (CNT), but that's not the case.

 

I don't think that AT was trying to lure somebody to buy their headphone by mistake, it's just a coincidence.


Wow what a weird way of thinking. The same category in so many aspects(not just the driver size) but they can't be compared because the driver coating is different? So, you can't compare the Pistons to the Philips cause the Piston has a different driver material, right?

 

And AT, which already has an ES500, comes out with an S500 and never having an "S" series before is just a coincidence and has nothing to do with the JVC S500. Sorry but competing makers many times come out with their "answer" to competing products. Their new IM series is not designed more like Shure and Westone out of coincidence but you copy what works.

The best vocals of what I have are the Tenore.  I'll have to get the H1 someday to compare.

Are you trolling or seriously not getting my point?

 

You can compare anything with anything, but AT's S500 was immediately juxtaposed with JVC's S500 by some posters here, and not with anything else!

Why do you think that happened? Other than the name, they do not have any more in common with each other than with any other portables.

They don't even look alike, so how exactly AT is trying to fool anybody?  Can you imagine chinese Beats Studio nockoffs looking nothing like Beats, just being called Studio?

How much do you think that would sell?

Yeah, probably listen to DannyBai LOL

 

Lot of hyperbole being thrown around this thread, Danny seems like one of the more grounded and experienced users that frequents here

I'm hoping you get the same pro tuned version of the B3 that I have. A few of the people who got the newer ones are having a much different experience over what I'm hearing.

Have you (or anyone here) found any IEMs that have better vocals than the Tenore? None of my IEMs nor headphones can compete.
