Great! More confusion to come darthsmile.gif

Thanks for the tip though, too bad I don't have the budget for both of them, so no more search!

On one hand from what I read Basso has fuller sound and more bass on the other hand I've read that Tenore has less bass but also a bit "washed out" sound so I must choose wisely confused_face(1).gif

S500+HM5 pads = 100% Comfort (I have them on for about 6 hours now!)

I would choose the Basso for prog metal. They are amazing with Tool and Dream Theater! Just make sure to pair the Basso with a great amp like the C5 for better control in bass and extended highs. Makes a whole lot of difference. I use to complain about the delay in decay on the Basso but its totally gone with the C5 on. I can even enjoy Pantera with the Basso!

I will soon receive a Fiio E10 I hope that they will pair good enough but I will mainly use them without amp straight from my Smartphone since I use the IEMs mainly outdoors. When I'm at home I always prefer my headphones over the IEMs

Thanks everyone for responding my questions but I decided to go with the Basso from a fellow Headfier!

I re-read your impressions and I think that it would be better to have more bass and then recess it with some tips than missing it, so fingers crossed!
Hopefully in a week from now I will know if I'll stay on the hype-train, otherwise you will find another Basso at the classifieds biggrin.gif

@vsls I hope you enjoy the Basso as much as I do. They sound their best when amped and still good even without. I find them great when paired with the HTC One.

How do these bassos/tenores perform instrument-separation-wise? On the mh1c i can hear everything from plucking of guitar strings to breathing. I was gonna pull the trigger on the VSD1s but i'm disappointed with the instrument separation and cleanness of sound.

is the C5 90$ better than the C and C BH? in terms of sound quality... are either of those class A?

thanks

Thanks d marc0, actually you assured me that I won't be disappointed by their sig for our similar music tastes so I will have someone to blame if they don't fit me then biggrin.gif

Basso + GnR + Samsung for me, let's hope they will be as good as yours!

 

 

I have another slightly off topic question to anyone could help. I was looking for the Meelec M6 tips that everyone praises (of course I don't know if I need them yet)

The cost for just one pair of the tips is $6,5 shipped and for $21 (OBO) you can buy a Sport-Fi S6 or a M6P IEM with all the tips and the case. Do they worth that $14.5 extra or should I just pick the tips?

Best to PM ClieOS because he's tried them all.

I agree, the One has amazing sound quality for a phone. 

Never tried it with a Wolsfen Samasung with Voodoo Mod so cant compare sadly.

Might get a basic amp to go with my Cowon J3.

Ok, I hadn't seen that requirement of yours yet (or I missed it). I posted my thoughts in your thread here:
