I got mine from Vision Store on Amazon.  Did anyone get theirs from them sooner than their expected delivery window?

Yep, got mine sent out via EMS and got my tracking number today, so hopefully shouldn't be too long to wait.

My pair was bought from woodlandhills_cass.. as noted in my previous post, it appears to be a 'good/non-defective' pair.

I just had the most epic listening experience ever. I am laying on my couch and listened to the entire newest steve wilson album. TRTRTS

Not only did it sound reference, it was literally one of the most incredible things i've ever heard. When the orchestral drum part came up on the last track i was literally in shock. I'm incredibly familiar with that part, because i use it to test and compare iems. It sounded noticeably better than i've ever heard it. I actually got the impression that i was getting 100% flat response.

Now that i breath warm air onto the tips, i seem to be getting more consistent fit and seal with the med stock tips. If i continue to get a seal like this, and mine don't fail, that will put the nail in the er4s coffin for me, and i will sell them.

Porcupine Tree is maybe my favorite band. What is this Steven Wilson TRTRTS of which you speak?

Oh my. I love PT, but steve wilson's latest soloish album is the raven that refused to sing. Produced by alan parson. It's a sound quality recording masterpiece and the music is excellent. Sort of a mix of 70s feel and modern steve... So good.

The songs are all long, epic movements like dark side of the moon or something. They each have multiple differing parts. Very good musicians..,

A day in with these now.. and I'm enjoying them even more than yesterday.  They're an absolute joy to listen (to any genre) with.  I've switched to the smallest (stock) single flange tips.. the Tenore seem to sound more linear (to my ears) with the deeper insertion that the smallest tips provide.  The smallest tips are even more comfortable than the medium tips, too.  Soundstage might narrow a bit (compared to what a shallower fit typically offers), but the smaller tips enable the soundstage to have better focus and imaging feels more accurate.

 

@gnarlsagan you asked for some music.. I'll toss my hat in the ring with this beast.  :wink_face:

Shallow? I wear mine pretty shallow. Every day these get better. I think the tips are softening and that combined with blowing hot air on them with my breath is giving me unreal quality. Un. Real. :-P

The only problem with that track is that there is no sub bass ;) ;)

here's a great track for sub bass:

And this is one of my all time favorite tracks for testing and just listening (the cd has no swishy hi hats):

Another excellent track from that album:

Just get the whole damn album. It's awesome. So solid.
