This applies to me as well and from what I can tell also Shotgunshane, gnarlsagan and maybe luisdent. Definitely dethrones the ER4 for me, which can never have the soundstage air or bass depth even with EQ

I removed the mesh filter and find it more to my liking πŸ˜„... I think I might buy more 😌... That's how much I love this 😍..this Is not hype or form materials , its the real deal, only if anyone has this and the translucent ref 1 to compare and they tell me that tenore are better then it will definitely cross out that from my list😁

Soundfreaq has a Tenore on the way, so he'll have both. With that said, the two are gonna have very different signatures. Ironically enough, I suspect that the Tenore is gonna be the more reference signature between the two in spite of the REF 1's moniker. In any case, one thing's for sure, the REF 1 isn't gonna sound $1,600 better than the Tenore

Yea. He probably reads this thread and laughs "haha they're just finding out about the tenores? Haha"

I'm noticing more and more people from the er4 thread over here. ;-)

I agree, bass and depth are unmatched. I still can't believe two things. First, how awesome they are. And second, the sound hasn't changed for me. Sometimes, like the re400, to had to grow on me. Not with the tenores. That makes me think they are very reference. There's no problem area that changes with genres or that you have to become familiar with. They just sound excellent.

I wholeheartedly agree πŸ˜ƒ

I'd be curious if the Tenore is so good at masking the imperfection in recordings. If that is so then it makes for a very good overall IEM cause the flaws won't stick out as when you're listening to the ER4. The flaws in recordings sticks out quite a bit on the ER4 which can be a good thing if you're mixing but for general music listening I'd prefer something that doesn't make the flaws stick out too much. Anyway I'll wait patiently for my Tenore to verify the result. I'll be waiting patiently for my Tenore to arrive.

The Tenores contains alot of detail, though they are not quite as "micro-articulate" as my HF5s for example, which are a bit more scratchy/excited/brimmy-sounding on the surface.

Β 

That said, the Tenores, without making them too obvious, the flaws can clearly be heard in a relaxed way. They really are incredibly smooth and running pink-noise, sweeps and other tests they are remarkable. Watching Terminator 2 I noticed a pronounced 14 or so KHz tone I'd never heard before, probably an artifact from the recording in that particular scene. They really don't roll off once you go above 10K. They just go and go. They will easily pick up stuff like ADR dialogue in movies and TV shows that were recorded separately, they are so airy and extended you can pick up even the slightest difference in the room ambience or the general recording.

Β 

If you want something more relaxed than the ER4S, comparing to the Ety HF5 the Tenores seem to have all the detail and a perceptually (depending on the general response of your current headphone it might take some listening to adjust as usual) incredible stable response. It really cannot be stated enough, these sound FLAT and with a silky smooth, yet highly detailed surface.

Thanks for the input Airlight. You've got me hallucinating about the Tenore sound before I even received it yetΒ :D

Considering we both have a common Etymotic reference (though I've never heard the ER4 but the Hf5s have the same driver with a slightly different tuning I believe) I don't think you will be disappointed. These are for my money more comfortable than the Etymotics and are effortless with smaller silicon single-flanges, medium-deep insertion gives for me a great seal with no hassle at all (my HF5s are either really bothersome to use with foam plugs, or I get a much to strong vaccuum seal when I use silicon tips to the point where swallowing makes you feel like your eardrum is coming loose, the Tenores are just wide enough to not fall into your ears like the thin thin Etymotics feel like they would).

I found a pair of Jays medium-small-ish tips for my Tenores with give just suction enough to give a good seal, making the bass just slightly lower than what it can be and a slight elevation in the top range due to the wider bore. They fit very well but they seem to allow some air to slowly travel through the tip avoiding a completely sealed feel.
