T-Peos H-100 Hybrid IEM Appreciation Thread - Page 11

post #151 of 1259

I use a bit of hardware implanted EQ from my Arrow amp. Bass boost to add more warmth to the lower mids and with certain albums I use the cross feed implantation. In general the cross feed on the Arrow takes a bit of the top and bottom and blend into the mids without collapsing the sound stage too much.

 

I found that the Clip+ actually sounds surprisingly good with the T-Peos and when RB a decent EQ and cross feed options are available.  So far I haven't used any EQ or cross feed with the Clip+, but may play around with it when I have more time to do so.

 

Regarding the W4. As with the RE262, both are very different IEM's than the T-Peos and to me hard to say which one is better, it really depends what I want to listen to. So in that aspect they can complement each other very well.

 

I really like to listen to well recorded classic/post-rock albums with the T-Peos, where the bite, aggressiveness, tonality of electric guitars can sound really great, but on the other hand recordings that particular suffers from being brickwalled I do have certain issues listening to.

Mine have arrived in three days from Korea to Australia.

First impressions are mixed:

The provided accessories are of average qaulity feeling and the box is pretty standard but a nice touch. Now...when I plugged them in only one side was showing mids and highs for the first two minutes, after raising the volume I felt the right side start grabbing hold.

The first thing I noticed was vocals were really really recessed I'm not sure about your pairs but these gave new meaning to TF10's recessed mids the first 10 minutes. However, after only 10 minutes use they seemed to change already waking up. Almost like the BA drivers were dead set stiff eh..They've since come forward to the intended position .

They require a lot of power for a 32ohm IEM. I need 33/40 to bring them up to speed on my Cowon S9 There's good separation, micro detail , air and a decent width soundstage using the Colourfly C3, they sound very different to anything I've ever heard and I won't rule out how nice that sound is just yet.

Too early to give impressions at this stage, very different to anything I've heard.

I still do feel like the kids are ever so slightly recessed, but I did find that by using either comply foams or whatever else that cutting them right at the sprout of the headphone helped a lot. It brings all the sounds a little more forward and especially helps the mid range. Along with a slight eq job. The tone and timbre is so unique on these in a good way I think it is worth the hassle of fiddling with the fit and eq. I agree they are unlike Anything I've heard.

I think my pair were seriously really stiff for the first few minutes as I start out with any new IEM on the lowest volume possible. Everything cleared up in a matter of 10 - 15 minutes use, though I was worried at first. First I was like where is the right side? gulped thinking they were faulty then.....where my vocals MY VOCALS! Arrrrgh! But we seem on track now. Timbre is great, though as any new IEM I won't say much yet but my outlook is positive.

Again, It's certainly not a mid range IEM emphasized performer, although I do find that's not lacking too much after while of use/run in/adjustment/source etc..  

 

Where I experience that it particular really shines is in the bass and treble presentation, quite extraordinary and a very interesting blend using a dynamic driver and BA driver combo. I did fear a bit of lack of coherency, but so far I can't complain! 

 

To me the me the real question is, how do we perceive this combo since it's a relative new implementation of two different types of drivers?

 

How does it sound, horrible, average or great? Are there other factors at stake like source, amplification where it responds differently for the better or worse? No difference is an option as well!

 

Are using dynamic/BA drivers combo's better than what else is offered?  I don't yet. The T-Peos has only given me an introduction to this technology at a price I can afford/want to spend and I will draw my own conclusions down the road :-)  So far, I'm much more impressed than not being impressed about the use of hybrid drivers in an IEM.   I do also recognize that the sound signature of the T-Peos may not row the boat for everyone!

So far, my favorite DAC/amp combo with the H-100 is the ODAC+O2.  The H-100 takes advantage of the better resolving ability of the DAC & the better dynamics & control the amp provides.  It sounds deliciously open and airy.  The overall neutrality, transparency, and clarity that this rig offers is a pitch perfect pairing for my listening habits.

 

This is a fantastic phone.. definitely one of my favorites up to this point.  I'm not ready to say where it stacks up in the grand scheme of things but I've owned quite a few phones in my time here.. I've trimmed back quite a bit in the past year as I'm dead set on only having a few pairs of phones that really check all the boxes for me.. I've let some pretty impressive phones go along the way (like the UM Miracle).  All I can say is, the 'new phone' honeymoon period has worn off.. and the H-100 still impresses the hell out of me.  I look forward to using it.. daily.  Considering the H-100's price-performance ratio, the only thing that might let me sell it is a hybrid custom (like the AS-2).

Can some please answer this question. I fear mine may have a slight channel imbalance.

I've tried several tips and vocals aren't quite centre they sound off to the left hand side a little. I fear my pair maybe faulty. I've tried so many different tips that seal properly and it's happening the same each time, vocals are off to the left a touch. Most other samples sound correct it's just the vocals are off centre.

Is this normal? do you pairs sound slightly off centre?

Edit: Nah, these are definitely faulty the left channels mids and highs are louder than the right.(bass is ok) It almost sounds like the BA driver is reverse polarity. I've tried all my other IEM's to make sure it's not me and the right channel is playing up for sure. I should of known something was iffy when I first put them on and the mids and highs were all but absent on the right side.

These will be going back, I'm contacting him now, What a shame because I really liked the sound too.

I'm out for weeks now.

Well mine are going back tomorrow, sellers been great... but I tell you right now without a second thought, I'll be buying another no questions asked! The sound these produce is insane! Even if it is only working properly on one side, I can grasp how they're mean't to sound. The clarity and resolution is nuts, makes TF10 sound really foggy and blurred, Even using an old ipod nano they still sound crystal clear!

Look at T-Peos I'll be seeing you again soon!
post #159 of 1259

I've been looking at these for some time now... I like my sound with good bass (not exagerated bass, but good quality bass in nice quantity) and mids (not recessed nor forward, just there), with soft but detailed highs! Would these suit me?

Putente I will compare to HY3 when I get it Putente!

You seem have every IEM/CIEM I'm considering to buy right now! biggrin.gif And that's great, Sonny! beerchug.gif

 

 

When are you getting your pair H-100K?

post #162 of 1259
They will be delivered tomorrow and that's what I aim to do, help people decide what they want to buy.

Wow, this will be great! Thanks!

I'm also looking forward to Swim's comments.

 

Listening for an hour this morning the high's that were annoying me really have balanced out and are almost non-existent now.  The eq helps but after probably about 40-60 hrs of burn in these things are really impressing me.  Seperation is better, sibilance or hints of it seem to be gone, the bass is slightly more impactful.  They sound great with stuff like Trentemoller and vocals sound better now too.  More balanced, certainly not recessed or forward. 

 

I do think they have enough bass to satisfy a basshead if eq'd but the seperation on them really is remarkable.  It's something that I really haven't heard before.  Anyhow, i do think these are a winner, but you may have to be patient while they burn in/warm up etc etc.

I just bought another pair. etysmile.gif The others are on their way back still, but I need that sound! I haven't been able to listen to anything else since properly. Not even GR07 MK2.
