I agree with Inks.  RE400 sounded boring in comparison to Tenore.  Tenore has much punchier bass while remaining tight.  Sounds bigger also.

Maybe the Singolo?  Drblue would have to weigh in.

Agree with Dannybai.  Female vocals are my #1 criteria and Tenore is much better than Basso.

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 😅

Sony MDR-EX1000?  That's $450!

I was just about to ask you if you've heard the EX1000 😆

Indeed mate! These guys pack more bang per buck IMO but some people are willing to pay top dollar for every last bang left.

I was willing to put down $650 in a recent/not so recent purchase. Looking at 1K+ gear at the moment but KC06A is at the top of my list after hearing the non A variant.

How do these compare to CK10s or CK100s?  If it's a step up, it would be nice, but I doubt it.  I don't like to judge iems on price.  These could be cheap and real good.

I listen to a lot of pop music, both English and Korean, and a lot of it features the typical pop music elements but with female vocals.

I haven't had the CK10 in a long time, but I've kept the DBA-02, and I remember pretty well how they compare and how TWFK drivers sound in general. The Tenore isn't nearly as bright as the CK10, as the Tenore tends toward smoothness is situations where sibilance might arise. The CK10 had much more of a tendency to sound strident with "s" and "t" sounds. Bass has more emphasis on the Tenore iirc. I can't speak much about the mids, since the bass and treble are the most obvious things I remember about the CK10. Generally speaking though, TWFK drivers like those on the CK10 show a dip around 3k, where the Tenore might be more flat. 

 

By memory I'd say that the Tenore is 100% a step up from the CK10 imho.

:basshead:  Didn't expect this.  Can you tell us why?  I can vouch for them as excellent sounding, but isolation sucks, it's a home rig IMO.  Of course the price wasn't exactly the best when it came out, the most expensive Sony iem ever at the time, and was quite steep compared to other universals at the time.  Now $500 is chump change compared to the universals with ridiculous prices now.  I don't like this trend.
