I'm a lucky bugger as well - I picked up my replacement Tenores today (after mini-meet with the Nickerfied one), and they sound as good as the first pair that I had, and so far the drivers are behaving themselves.
Thanks MASA' WAYNE, can't say that i ain't cuz my collection of cheapo budget-fi wonders is getting bigger and bigger yet is still lean and mean in sound but hasn't destroyed my wallet yet. LoL
Likewise congrats on your 2nd set but try to not do anything crazy like paddleboard with it will ya'.
Though i am sure it is tempting. haha

That sounds like these will compete REALLY well with the Fostex TE-05 cuz the TE-05 got crazy good sub bass quantity as well as quality without much mid bass bloat/ bleed. Pretty damn musical as well, but yet has great micro detailing without sounding too over analytical or cold. Almost perfect but..... can be a bit fatiguing for long listening lessons.
The Ostry KC06 is much better for extended sessions from my sources compared to the TE-05 plus it is much easier to drive from my phone. The birds wins out in practicality while the TE-05 wins in technical ability, so it should be interesting to see how these reference tenores fare compared to these two.
