Chinese / Asian Brand Info Thread (Headphones, IEMs, Amps, DACs) - Page 257

There's people on the tenore thread claiming that they completely destroy IEMs like the Sony h3, jvc fx-850, gr07 BE, and even $1000+ dollar customs...

What a joke!!!

Are you saying the tenores aren't the absolute perfect ruler flat response that is perfect in every single possible way??? Audio blasphemy! I shall see you audio court.

 

But seriously it is fun trying different headphones for all the sound signatures that exist out there and I personally have added quite a fair pairs of iems/cans to my collection as a result of the hype trains that have been created for them. Some headphones may have just been me burning money for the sake of adding newer headphones to my collection but most headphones have been fantastic. Pretty much have decided to slow down on my personal headphone purchases as I am pretty happy where I am now.

I'm not trying to hate on people who like or prefer the sound of the tenore, it's just that at this point in time it is an exciting time for iems with hybrid technology, and budget models that do rival higher end stuff.

The tenore is great, it's just not a mythological creature sent from the heavens to take listening ears to the fourth dimension lol

I got tired of Tenores being mentioned in every bloody thread regardless of what that thread's topic actually is a while ago. It's fine to gush in an Appreciation thread, but to jump into every second thread preaching the Tenore gospel is downright irritating and, in my opinion, disrespectful.

 

That said, I'd love to hear 'em, but I can't get 'em for that cheap and I'm currently not willing to spend money on more earphones anyway. Even with people raving about them, I have no illusion that they would render everything else I own obsolete in one fell swoop.

@Hisoundfi I agree with the most. And I put Tenore and KC06 in same league with diff ss. B3 Pro1 for me is above all. But I accept that for around 60USD they are all winners...

LOL

FOTM hype on Head-Fi. No surprise wink.gif

Thanks to you guys on THIS thread, I got the Tenore Carbos. Great sounding IEMs that will compete well in the <$100 range. They have a good balanced sound with a little bit of bass emphasis (to my ears) that really appeals to my particular listening tastes. But you are right. Like every other IEM or headphone that has been proclaimed a giant killer on Head-Fi, they are NOT a giant killer smily_headphones1.gif

However, I'm not going to buy the Havis and the Ostrys to determine which are the best of the three. I'm perfectly happy with the Tenores smily_headphones1.gif

This post inspired me to bust out the havi and give it a long overdue session. I experimented with tips and found a better seal with some large sony hybrids. These things are amazing. My e18 pushes these things so beautifully. The detail and separation are seldom matched. And yeah, THEY ARE BETTER THAN THE TENORE in many aspects.

This made me laugh out loud sitting in my cubicle at work. I think my colleagues heard me ):

Seriously though, very sensible posts on this page. Good to see that.
