Thanks for all the help so far everyone!

 

Yeah that is now necessary, and will probably become a regular thing with a lot of online stores in the future.

 

Dont worry about it, just follow the instruction and you'll be fine.

That's good to hear. Not that it'll get more common, but that it's safe. :D

A last question - how often do people get charged for customs with EMS? I'm assuming it's pretty likely to happen.

Well it happened to me first time this year, and I've been ordering from Japan using EMS for about 10 years now.

 

So I think you're pretty safe, its just luck mostly.

My Tenores are now about 200 hrs of burn in seasoned.  They are just fantastic for music with melodies, rhythms and sonic textures, acoustic

blues electric or acoustic, and light rock shine.  The Bassos are better for ddm, Shpongle chill type music and anything that benefits from 

an artiificial bass floor but you dont care its artificial. Tenores are definately a keeper, and sweet iem indeed for either critical listening or blues heaven.

At the price they are going for, they are a marvel........ccongratulations to zero audio...well done!

Well, Tenores will be my choice, then! I've had my eye on some other IEMs out there too, but since I'm a bit tired of being indecisive, I'll just pick this. :D

Yes, those are the ones.

Spot on!

 

Also would like to add that the Tenores shine with EDM as well.

 

Unless you prefer more bass, then you should go for Bassos.

Sadly to report...my basso has the dreaded driver flex issue where right phone is much lower in volume. No matter what I do it dont go back to normal.

The hybrid tips to minimize the problem but its still noticeable. :(

I bought from ebay and messaged the seller, will see what he says.

post #908 of 4258

Wow, I didn't know that driver flex affected volume.  I thought it was just a minor annoyance when putting them in ear.

Thats what I thought it was!

Looks like I lost out £50 on these as seller not replied.

Do any of you have the MEElectronics A161P and the Basso or Tenore?  I want to know if my comparisons are accurate or if I just can't get a good seal with the A161P.  I tried all of the included tips (single, bi-flange, triple flange).

 

The A161P has fast bass, but low quantity and not deep, so that makes the sound thin.  The mids and trebles are more detailed and clearer than the Tenore but are more prone to sibilance.

 

Overall, I prefer the Tenore.  You guys who have the basso should really try the Tenore with the MEElectronics M6 double flange tips.  I like them more than the Basso for everything except for the times when I want more bass.

 

EDIT:  I just tried the EQ on the computer and when I do want more bass, I give a very slight increase to the 31hz and/or 62hz and the Tenore is perfect!

Im in the same boat. I got the meelec double flange a16 tips and the fit is terrible on me with my bassos. It basically dangles from my ears. It wont seal at all. 10 bucks down the drain. I guess they made these tips for people with ultra small ear canals.

Did you mean A161p tips?  The double flange fit me perfectly on the Tenore.

Woops sorry about that. I misunderstood you. Weird the tips dont fit me. Way too tiny for my canals.

No one here has both Basso and Meelec EDMs.

At the moment Meelec has offer 25% off and $2.85 off international shipping on all items so the EDMs are around £28 inc shipping.

Am tempted seeing as 1 of my basso phones has developed lower volume then other.

If you take a look a couple pages behind, I had exactly the same issue but it was the left phone for me. I couldn't even burn them in. If you find any solution please inform me since I gave up the search.

It can't be a driver flex
