Yeah, there are a lot of factors that affect the sound "break-in". I think there might have been actual sonic changes after maybe 10-20 hours of use, however, like rin has measured before, the changes would have been small. I think most of the changes probably came from the softening of the tips, finding the right insertion/fit and getting used to the signature. But no matter what the case, I find them more neutral now and couldn't be happier. I just can't believe they beat the HD series headphones. At least my pair. Those are staples of the audio world.

Which tips are you using on the Tenores? I keep reverting back to the mid sized stock tips.

 

I'm using the large tip. Better than the mid for me. Reduce the bass bloom.

Now that track sounds perfectly reference it's insane. I wish I had payed attention more to it. I'll keep an eye on my next few sets and give impressions as I break them in.

 

I'm not putting them on the burning cycle but can notice improvement with each session so far.

An idea popped into my head - what if I put on another set of filters on top. Got some spares with my RE-600. I believe it's the same you get with the RE-400. Put them on top of the ones already on and use medium standard tips (the ones that was on). To me it seems "fuller" with a little warmer vocals (which I don't find distant anymore since this change, hmm strange). I like this signature more so going to keep it like this. Edit: forgot to mention: I'm talking about the Tenore.

I received my Tenore yesterday...so far, I prefer the signature of the KC06.    I do like the Tenore a lot -- I can't believe these two models cost only $60.

Please provide us with your comparison of the two if you can after extended listen, and let us know if there are any changes to Tenore over time.  I would like to know what KC06 does better as I've been eyeing them.

 

Thanks, SE

Will do...

 

They do seem a little bass heavy right now.  Perhaps the Tenore was designed to have this much bass and gnarlsagan's bass light units are the ones that are defective (and not the other way around).

Not bass heavy, just abit more subbass then mid bass which might seem as bass heavy but to me its great 😋

Heard that tenores are sibilant? This might be something new lol. Can't wait for someone to call them harsh. :veryevil:

post #2265 of 5986

Who said the Tenore is sibilant??? They're extremely smooth maybe a little too smooth :D
