I will definitely but I did have both dunu hybrid which I didn't like because of fit and comfort and for sound the dn1000 had recessed midrange and dn2000 had no treble or subbass that I wanted and plus the dunu dn2000 and so painful in the earsūüėĖ, looking at the altone200 they exactly looks like the te-05 without the removable cable ūüėÉ

Actually the housing of the Altone200 looks exactly like the Fischer Audio Silver Bullet. I had those driver flex monsters for a short bit. Almost identical. Let me know of the altone200 has any of that accompany in driver flex? The Fostex housing is much thinner and longer.

While they are pretty spiffy, if you like the pretty neutral sound of the Tenore, you might be in for a ride with the H3.

Not sure I buy reviews from reviewers that always tend to shill IEM's for the same company. That guy who reviewed the altone200 reviews all their IEMs. Hard to stay unbiased IMHO. I definitely think they won't be giant killers ect. But I hope you enjoy them, mochill?! wink.gif


Why so negative? I trust the comments from the Head-Fiers who already received the Altone200's. So far all the comments have been positive.

 I trust them also. I've got a good feeling about the Altone's. Then again, I love my H200's (with the right tips), so I guess I'm easy to please :)

They're probably smaller and don't have the angled housing like the Silver Bullets, I have them here next to my tiny Tenors. And d marco compared them with the Zero Audio Basso and mentioned that they are even smaller :bigsmile_face:

Why negative? I'm not being negative. I'm speaking from experience. Some of you here seem to think that unless you massage the opinions of every single headfi'er about a "new" IEM, you're being negative. I'm speaking straight from EXPERIENCE. I don't like T-PEOS sound signature. Bhazard mentioned he didn't like the Tenores. He sold them. Wayne likes the Tenores, but he didn't like other IEM's like the FXT90 I believe it was? Did you go to either and post WHY SO NEGATIVE? I'm sure they would have told you the same thing I'm telling you. I've got a right to like or not like T-PEOS as a former owner of not one but two pair. So don't treat me like some novice, please. As for the Altone, I said I hope they turn out great for mochill and and miyaichi, and everyone else who invested in them, just like I got my fingers crossed about the Doppio. It's has mixed reviews, but the mention of it's sound sig seems to match mine. If not? I'll sell it in the classified and maybe pick up one of those cool looking Rock Jaw IEMs smily_headphones1.gif

You want to know a real negative? I'm listening to my Tenores on my X3, and I've got imbalance on the left side as I type this, which is making the devil come out of me. This poor *** QC from Zero Audio has me seething right now. I sure as hell hope the Doppio are built better??? If this doesn't correct itself, I'm switching over to my Pistons.

Just chill. Where did you get the idea that I was treating you like a novice. All I said is "why so negative?". You obviously haven't heard the Altone200's yet, so why make negative comments about them. I'm sorry if I offended you.

It's cool. I got no beef with ya. Just saying based on my experience with other T-PEOS products, I don't have much faith in the altone200, but I hope in wrong.

I tried using my AM-90's, but still miss the detail and soundstage of the Tenores, plus the bass just isn't really impactful, though I will tell ya, the Astrotec AM90 are one of the best single BA bass IEMs. They can actually slam with a bit of boost on the X3, with no distortion. The treble though is kinda mellow, and the mids are tizzie. Still not a bad listen for $40. I still went back to my Tenores, and the imbalance is gone again.

Ok so T-PEOS came out with a dual dynamic driver/single BA hybrid IEM, H-150, and there's almost no info on it, even with current prices going for $100.00. WHY IS THAT? Did they turn out to suck? Even for someone who isn't a fan of T-PEOS, this seems an intriguing concept.

You have a TTS (Typical Tenore Syndrome) man!

 

It has no stability. It happens and goes away after some time... without any signs, without any reasons, without any explanations :angry_face: you don't know how long will it last or how long will it take to cure.

 

Many people suck their Tenore's holes (yes both front and rear :veryevil:), many people removed the filters, many people played around the cable and connections........ NO CURE, NO OUTCOME!

 

 

That TTS will make any Tenore lover a paranoid listener :basshead:
