Same problem on every source.

Just my 2 cents. Maybe you could try cleaning the plug with some contact cleaner. Had this problem with JVC S500 and cleaning the plug with Kontak cleaner helps.

Cleaning the plug didn't help, the problem is in the right earphone

It's most likely an issue with overpressurization from the back vent not working properly. This happens on the mh1 too. It I'm thinking its a manufacturing defect- perhaps there is some glue or something blocking the back vent.

Sorry to hear that.. I was looking forward to hearing your impressions as a fellow S680-er.

Since you love S680, Bassos are a better choice for you anyway.

It's unusual for an IEM to have a bass that you can not only hear, but feel too - Basso has that.

y didnt u said u can feeeeeeeel the bass earlier..... i could hv .....oh nvm :P

Actually I find the bass quantity and thump on the Tenores more than adequate.. it's possible that my preferred sound signature has matured/changed.  But I still like the S680 too.  I feel like these are a decent alternative to the S680, in a tiny package.

If it were a dynamic I would agree but it's a bA, BAs are limited bandwidth, even two is not enough to cover the whole spectrum IME

But they produce enough bass imo

Lcp drivers would have been better for these 😎

Let me give this a shot. Going by EX1000 memory: Tenore has more tactile bass then the EX1000, giving the rise and fall of bass notes better definition. The midrange on the EX is more airy, causing vocals to seem like they have a bigger stage to travel in. The EX1000 highs sound brighter, giving cymbals a larger presence.

I find the Tenore comes with a more comprehensive sonic package, sounding better filled in all round. The EX1000 is however special in that it sounds quite open relative to all the other phones I've tried so far. It also has the best vocal presentation I've heard in that it sound as clear and airy as hearing my cousin sing in front of me.

That's my subjective evaluation of these two phones. Hopefully someone can give you a better comparison cuz that didn't go down with much confidence 😅

I see. BTW, are you sending your backup pair to Rin to analyze?
