Mine are gone. Sold them today. The TTS was simply too annoying to continue to overlook. Plus my Doppio just showed up in LA, so I should have them in my ears no sooner than Wednesday?

Be careful. Be very careful of the TTS.

I just sold my pair of Tenore. After falling deeply in love, I found the inexplicable and so random bouts of gas to be too much to keep her. In other words, the TTS simply overtook the deep admiration for the sound coming from the Tenore. So with a heavy heart, I sent them away as I await my Doppio on Wednesday.

BYE YOU SEXY BUT FRUITY SKETCHY THING YOU!!

How does the sound/sound quality of the tenores compare to the re400?

 

atm i'm looking at the re400, rock it r50, se215, and kc06. from what i've read, the re400 is the best out of that bunch, excluding the tenores.

How does this compared to Yamaha Eph100? Does the cable tangle easily? :rolleyes: How about SQ?

The Tenore (when they work), have clearer mids and slightly better treble than the EPH100. Bass is slightly weightier/lush on the Yamaha, with the Tenore bass being more reference/articulate. The RE-400 doesn't hold a candle to the Tenore. More controlled/articulate highs, though to be fair, the RE-400 has better extension, but that's where it ends. The mids are more lush, have better separation, and imaging with the Tenore, bigger soundstage, and the bass is deeper, more articulate, slappier, and with more heft. Also fit and isolation are better with the Tenore.

And the cord on the tenore is really good. Cinch. Low microphonics and tangling. Now beware the TTS. That driver disfunction is a deal breaker for some.

Disfunction? You mean like right/left sound suddenly cut off?

That sound so much like the Yamaha EPH 100 defect. But mine does not have the problem.

Really? Maybe it has something to do with micro drivers?

Not sure,but from what i heard. Yamaha and there sport with micro driver only have this issue? So most probably? I have no idea about JVC (Fxt-70-90) IEM micro driver, not sure they have any issue or not.

I don't really want to play mind games with myself wondering whether the sound is different this time. I'd rather use something that just works, and the Tenore just doesn't. Using eq is a much better option compared to this, even though using eq sucks. Consistency is more important than convenience to me in this hobby.

Same for me, sold one already and will get the second one exchanged =/
