Anyway I'll wait patiently for my Tenore to verify the result.
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.
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.
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.
