wonderful market that is Rakuten and Japan! My wallet is not liking it tho :)

Hey hey hey, don't knock it, it's my tester i didn't say i loved it. It's one of the few songs i know that has decent dynamics with a good sub bass alright tongue_smile.gif

 

Got my invoice from tenso, ems insured plus their fee came to £17.50

 

Pretty impressive.

more info for the terminally, obsessively impatient, such as myself.  You can track the EMS shipment from Japan on the usps.com site by pasting the 'tracking number' in the Tenso email into the tracking field. Here's mine:

hope this info is useful to my fellow anticpators....

On a more sonic note (pun intended), I wanted to point out that bass response below 20 Hz has a lot to do with sound stage size, not just the high frequencies.  We use the low-bass info to determine the size of a 'room'  much as we use higher frequency info and inter-aural arrival time differences for positioning info.  So, it should be no surprise that the 200 has a bigger, more defined sound stage...  (try this at home with a good speaker system and a great sub - when you have it dialed in correctly, when you turn off the sub the sound stage collapses....)

 

 

Also, speakers (or cans) with rolled off bass, but extended highs will sound bright, even if they measure flat across their actual bandwith.  So, the lower into the bass they go, the more highs they can have and still sound balanced.

 

just my 2 cents worth

 

ok, back to clikcing 'track' over and over again!  darthsmile.gif

That's okay.  You can admit to loving her bottom end.

My tracking info is exactly like yours.....where are you located....I am in the midwest, west of Chicago!  It would be interesting to see who gets theirs first!

post #849 of 3184

I specified my work address for the shipping, which is in Chicago, just west of downtown.  I am hoping they get here no later than tomorrow- as we have well-deserved 4 day weekend coming - so if not Friday, then I won't see them until next Wednesday - the horror, the horror!!!!      Where are you located?  Maybe we can get together and mug ericp10 if we don't get ours soon L3000.gif

I'd love to get together with my buddy ericp10, he would love to her my modded S500's, but I'm way further west, southern MN!

when I did amazon one day shipping, they shipped it and delivered to tenso in the SAME DAY. despite that amazing feat, tenso did not receive it until the next day for some reason. You might have to wait one or two more days in order for them to have it in their possession.

I got a receipt notice overnight and have paid.  But I guess they don't ship until Monday now?  That's kinda silly, the working day hasn't even started yet and they don't ship until COB the next business day?  It's cool that the service exists but a little surprised based on some of the comments here that it's going to take literally 6 days from time of order from Amazon to being on its way to me in the US.

 

EDIT: Guess it's actually more like 5 days at COB in JST is late Sunday night.  Damn, if I got these in a day earlier they would have left a couple days earlier.

Ahhhh, I thought you meant they did not have it with them to ship it yet. In your page, does the green square with an airplane icon have a (1) or (0) on it? If it is (0) it was shipped, if not then those guys do have a weird policy on shipping near christmas times.

post #854 of 3184

LOL, its funny to see people getting overly excited about the progress of their shipment. Well, i can understand why when u are about to get your hands-on on the best IEM in the world....tongue.giftongue.gif

post #855 of 3184

finally I also ordered one fxz200 :)

Can tenso mark a lower price during international shipping to evade custom charges
