Well, that explains certain things. You oughta add a disclaimer to your impression posts. ;):p

Ha ;) When I'm testing earphones I have the a/c off and wear them normally. But at night when I'm just listening to music sweating my @s$ off I have them on so I can use the a/c :-P I only wear them when I need them, and they don't change the sound anyway, except by making the listening environment quieter. :-P

You may mock, but luisdent is obviously comfortable enough in his masculinity as to not be ashamed of his color preferences. Bravo luisdent!

They could match bassy drivers to bassy drivers and reference drivers to reference drivers (and bass light drivers to bass light drivers).

Getting MH1 flashbacks :l

All of my Tenore's are close in bass but there are differences of a few db's. Nothing huge though.

Interestingly I've been listening to Luisdents recabled mh1 with super glue in its strain reliefs and comparing to my bassiest Tenore with taped vents.

His super glued mh1 has vastly improved bass over one without. The tape mod Tenore has a tiny bit more sub bass and the super glued mh1 has a tiny bit more mid bass. Very surprising there. Vocals sound much better on the Tenore- better balanced with mids and treble. The mh1 surprisingly sounds slightly V shaped/hollow in direct comparison. The Tenore treble seems more controlled and more even as well.

Hmm. So why do I need to keep any mh1's? Well, other than looks- the white mh1 with SPC cable does look great. But I'd reach for the Tenore over it every time.

Dat hot pink ear muffs.  Mmmmmm yummy.  :D

 

It isolates and the man is wearing it inside the house.  No worries.  You know how hot colors are typically colors for warnings?  Warning Warning.  If you were at the gun range, it can cause some flirtations by other male members within the vicinity.  

 

Anyway, dat post made my day.  It's one of the best ever I've run into here on this thread.

Hi guys, are your tenores affected by burn in?

post #3233 of 4264
I'm pretty sure mine have had no burn-in effects. We're still trying to figure out what is causing some of the variance, but as for them changing over time due to driver bread-in, I don't believe there is any audible change...

Pulled the trigger on the tenore let's see if they can beat my sony mh1c paid more or less the same price for both :rolleyes:

I know many swear against use of Equ, but I was wondering how well the Tenores respond to it.

Can a pair with very low or high bass be tamed to reference level to some degree with Equ. Or tip selection & insertion depth are the only way ?

Mine have shipped at last. ETA 15/07 popcorn.gif

Mine is a reference pair, and I can confirm that it responds VERY good to bass boost: 3-6 dB up around 60Hz and I'm a happy man!

FYI, I'm going to be putting my bassy (but still pretty reference) pair of tenores up for sale on the forum. I need to sell some things to make money for some sampled instruments. :-P And o.k., maybe four tenores was a bit overkill... But they are amazing!

 

I'm going to sell the one I consider the bassiest, as I prefer my perfect reference sets (to my ears). So I would still describe this as pretty reference, and not as bassy as some describe. If anyone is interested send me a PM. I should have the ad up in the next day or so. These do have super glued stress relief, which made absolutely no difference in the sound, but at least they're reinforced now. ;) hehe. And it isn't visible without close inspection. Anyway, I think I can live with three and an ostry. haha

 

I won't tell anyone about the other earphone I've been contemplating selling. I'd get thrown to the wolves. ;)

Well, I decided not to get rid of any tenores. Now I'm thinking of getting rid of the bassy tenore, because I'm finding the other two more reference.

 

Don't worry though, I might get rid of the ostry too. haha. I'm so undecided right now. I found an amazing string library for recording my music, so I'm starting to reconsider some of these earphones for now. Besides, you should hold onto those golden beauties. You might regret letting them go. ;) The tenores I have are less bassy. :)
