Success! The other day I passed the 7 day mark with zero signs of TTS. I am now officially endorsing taking off the mesh screen and stuffing a small amount of cotton into the barrel. Sound has been spectacular and perfectly consistent throughout the entire week of testing. Clarity is not at all affected by this mod, and may actually be slightly improved, although I can't put the mesh screen back on to be 100% sure.
I offer my thanks to James (I think it was him) for recommending this mod. It has extended the quality and usefulness of my Tenore in way I didn't think was possible. I will, of course, keep everyone updated if anything changes, but 7 straight listening sessions with zero issues is a very good sign that this problem has been solved.
I read that if you take your Tenore's out of your ears and replace them with Rockets that SQ improves. Can you verify or deny?
