I hear my pair more analytical then V but again.. up top. I've sent them a message and will get a replacement shipped out on Friday. Maybe it's just me(very possible) but I'll test both out and see if they sound different.

Normally I'm not a big fan of the expanding foam tips, but I have had great success with the Comply S-200 tips. Luckily they have been cleaning up very well in just some soapy water and I have only used 1 pair with out any degradation occurring to the material. The sound of my Tenores has been spot on with regards to audio reproduction since owning them. With the Comply tips I can get a good seal and have the ability to have a shallow or deep insertion which changes the overall signature to my preference.  I have only had one issue with the Tenore and that is where the cable meets the strain relief on the right driver. It tends to pull out a little bit over time, but I have been able to push it right back in. It might cause an issue over time, but luckily it hasn't been much of a pain.

Can you compare to the bi-flanged tips and comply's for the tenore?

The b-flanges help tighten the bass without affecting loudness. If you only want to increase bass impact use these. The s200 foams cut a lot of bass, so if you get a bass heavy pair these will make it sound more neutral at the cost of isolation.

From what I've read, Altone 200 is missing the sub-bass layer that Tenore has, so it's not great for pop and EDM like the Tenore.

Pastapipo and Peter123 said the Tenore is a natural upgrade to MH1.

It's subjective. Everyone has their own flavor. I like both phones and rate them equally. Source plays a big part too.

Edit: Might have defective pair of Altones, waiting for replacement unit.

Joker says his Altone has more sub-bass then his GR07 BE. I personally find my BE has the "sub-bass layer" that works with EDM/pop.

The Altone I have also has sub bass presence but my GR07 BE sound like it has more. I also tried a pair of Tenores and found they work with EDM/Pop on my end but then they also have some problems going on...

Conclusion: I don't know what's up my botherin but the bolded part has relevant info. Hurray for me and my wonderful luck... 😐

ME2: $655 wasn't enough I guess.

Yeah. I LOVE the sound signature of my Tenores; in all honesty I enjoy them way more than my Bassos and I loved the Bassos as well. The Tenores are really lightweight and the housings are really small, meaning that I can wear them for hours and hours without any discomfort. Paying more money for something with a similar sound signature and comfort/fit but better build quality is definitely on the cards for me. I could comfortable pay double or triple if I'm going to enjoy them as much without any discomfort or build issues.

post #4001 of 4258

Yeah, they do sound great and they are extremely comfortable, that's why it's so hard to stay mad at them for all their faults. I will just have to find some time to mod a pair. Some mods for the bass (both quantity and reverberation), a recabling with a mic and probably something for the moisture... Frankenore here i come!

post #4002 of 4258

Ok, thanks guys. Again head-fi is a big help. I've gotten the tenore and bassos, and ordered 3 pairs of m6 bi-flanged tips(clear).

post #4003 of 4258

I've recabled another mh1 and filled the stress relief. mmmmmm. I think this one is as good as the tenore... A bit less bass than stock and feels great.

Day 3: TTS is still nowhere to be found. Sound is as good as ever.

Thanks! How about reverting to stock filters for a cross-check?
