Not sure what to suggest at this stage.  I guess check back at another 24 hrs.  Make sure there's no wax built up in the nozzle and also make sure the plug is in all the way or twist it around to see if any of the channels are cutting out just in case there's a short somewhere.  tongue_smile.gif

Thankfully I not noticed any driver flex.

I tried lisening to the M7 IEMs and they are good for free phones but I still think the Bassos are better then them/.

post #828 of 1051

the Bassos are better, after extensive burn in, than a lot of way more expensive iem, and can be revelatory with certain kinds of music,

eg. psytrance mixes from festivals, etc.  ive actually turned my head around to see if the sounds coming in the room were behind me or

in the mix!  (proof of great soundstage, and the phasers sound like science fiction devices from synthesizers.  not so much for voice

and detail, but not bad. and still breaking in more...

I find the detail to be similar to my Vsonic GR06. Thats not saying much as the 06s are not high end!

I think the CMK99s or 1000s will have better detail.

Sounds like it might be channel imbalance. You'll probably have to seek a warranty replacement.

post #831 of 1051

true enough, but i have the CKM99 , well broke in from two owners, and the BASSOS hold their own against them!  the CKM99s have more bass impact, but the treble

can be harsher and more fatiguing, and i cant listen to them for long periods of time.  The BASSOS are more balanced and have more detail in the upper ranges and are less

harsh.  Im looking forward to auditioning the CKS1000s, as everyone on head-fi seems impressed by them, even though they are inaccurate, but somehow "pleasing"

My Sony MDR7550 are still my go to most musically accurate earphone, but not so portable and considerably more expensive, but they have a studio sound that

is totally balanced and silky smooth and natural. of course for electronic music being "NATURAL" is not necessarily a plus, hence the BASSOS are better for

sheer sonic joy for psytrance, SHPONGLE chill psychedlia, etc...

Yeah I only listen to EDM so dont like neutral and laid back IEMs.

5hrs burn-in and nothing changed at all. I haven't use them more than 2hrs no wax, no plug problem no extreme usage of anything so it can't be my fault.

I think that I can't have warranty replacement since it's a Japanese only product and doesn't cover me.

post #834 of 1051

if all you listen to is EDM i would seriously consider the ATH CKM99S, they are a great value. but burn them in over 100 hrs or more!

the CKS1K seem to be the holy grail, however, but twice the price  the only AT iems to make the top ten of the major iem review

on head-fi is the C100s which are about 350.00 on amazon.jp.  way more...CK10 came in 11th place.  but still values considering that

the other top ten phones ranged from 350 to 1350.00$.......havent heard the sony EB90 but lots of listeners love those for the low bass

clarity, or CKS77x for the rumble...of course in the over ear category the JVC S500 have monster bass, not so much detail, but are the

best 50$ value in headphones around if you dont need too much treble or detail.

Did you purchase them from Amazon Japan? If you did purchase from them, you should be able to get a replacement or refund.

Contact the Head-fier you purchased it from.  Most likely they bought it from Amazon Japan or eBay seller.  Don't think there's any other way to acquire these.  That person should have receipt and be able to provide that for you or could work something out with you for a possible faulty product.  Not blaming anyone here but that's what I would do as a seller here on head-fi.

Will have to wait until at least Xmas before next upgrade lol

If the 99s have harsh treble and bassos have more detail then I am happy with the Bassos.

The seller sent me the receipt from Amazon Japan. Is there any possibility to get a replacement and/or refund from them? I don't have a Tenso account yet and I don't know what would be the possible procedure for a Japanese only product. The IEM was purchased in the end of June.

Amazon Japan's policies are pretty much the same as here in the US.  Only problem is that the seller would have to go into his/her orders and click on the tab to issue a refund if it's not too late.  Amazon provides return shipping label and the money is refunded.  I think this is the only way to go about it.  The seller would have to do this, then purchase another pair and pay Tenso's fees again.  Not very ideal for the original buyer and the second hand buyer.

Does Amazon Japan cover the cost of international shipping back to them as well?
