I'm not sure if I love or hate the looks yet, but very interesting! I do appreciate their originality. I will be looking forward to some reviews on SQ.

Now I have to find time to compare the RE-400 with the TE-05 (I already know the latter wins in bass).

Months ago I remember you liked the RHA MA 750.  How does it compare to the TE-05 and Tenore?  Not even in the same ballpark?

Well, I'll tell you the Tenore and all $100 and below have to take a backseat again to the RE-400, especially with these Spiral Dot tips on it. It's like I have new version of this Hifiman earphone (with bass this time). Very nice!

 

Do you have a link where I can find these Spiral Dot tips?  I'm very curious to try it with both RE400 and RE400B (balanced wired) that came bundled with HM700.  RE400B sounds much better than RE400 with any other DAP; wider, more detailed, and with higher bass quantity.  Just imagining how much better it would sound with new tips considering improvement with regular RE400.

I still do like it. It's not as transparent or as clear as the TE-05, but I would have to compare it to the Tenore to see how the two rank. The MA750 also isn't neutral at all.

mikavali06  gave you the link.

 

Yes, they come with the FX850 but you can buy them separately.

Was going through my tips collection trying different ones with Tenores, and decided to try Comply tip (from UE900, I guess TS-200) and WOW, took the sound to the next level!!!  A deeper sub-bass, more controlled punch of mid-bass, overall a bit more details, and I really feel by sealing my earcanal with these foamies the width of soundstage got improved..

Thanks......so many to choose from these days. It seems Phillips now has a TX-2 and another 97xx series??!!! Just when I think I have narrowed my search more IEM's pop up on the scene.

yes, i use them almost every night for amazon streaming mp3s and pandora radio.  they smooth out the mp3 have great bass and subbass

and are very musical. great for EDM, rock and solo vocals.  quite worth the price.  but for quality listening to better sources way prefer my on-1s

doppios and isingulos.

Those Yammies are interesting. One moment they look kinda cool and original, the next moment they look like they were driven over by a truck. Even photos of them being worn are strange - it can look quite fine and comfortable in some pictures while others it seems so unnatural it's almost like they were photoshopped on.

Looks like the Beats lawsuit lit a fire under their posteriors to make a design that pretty much no one else can claim belongs to them.

I look forward to impressions regardless smily_headphones1.gif.

guys should really pay some attention to the Koss ksc75. I have them couple of days now and they are really pleasing me.

 

the sound is really detailed, full of emotion and quite crisp. there is just the right amount of base frequencies (but the sub-base could be a little more :D) and it doesn't bleed into mids. the thing is, it somehow manages to really divide sound into different frequency spectrums and they never interact with each other in a bad way. thus, different instruments are so well separated and articulated, that it can handle even the busiest rock music. sound isn't thin, but it isn't thick either. in terms of viscosity, I would say it is somewhere between WD-40 and water...

 

soundstage is pretty good. nothing super wide or deep, but the sound field is well spaced out and everything has its own positioning. it does make you feel like you are there in the music and doesn't sound like two drivers hanging on the ears. there's zero isolation though, so you need to listen in quieter rooms for the sound to really spread out.

 

as for comfort, they are pretty good actually. if you bend the clips just the right way, then you could probably wear them for hours without any discomfort.

 

highly recommended. this is the sort of headphone, that if the cables give out, I will go extra length to re-cable them in something more durable and good looking. speaking of looks though. well there's the thing that Koss made the most economy on :D
