Also as gyx11 said, he was so hyped on those Tenores that his expectation biase is through the roof and therefore will definitely subconciously affect his impressions.

Personally though I am hoping that the hype on the Tenores, Havi and Ostry are legit. Win win situation for all music lovers eh? Just my 2 cents.

is there a comparison out there that favours the tenores to the havi b3?

I don't see how and I have them both. Tenores are awesome but don't beat the Havi's. Just my opinion.

I've tried them. They were good but not great. I didn't burn them in though.

I'll try them over the weekend again.

Did you find the time to try the SMSL M2 amp already?

Please do and report back, looks like an interesting pair to order a handful of and keep around for gifts and loans. Inline mic is definitely an added benefit!

It's good. Seems a little bright, but it works well as a quick dac/amp connected to a PC. It's a great new budget amp/dac.

Yours doesn't have the horrible noise on both outputs?

Got the ATH-IM50 yesterday.

So far...

Pros:
Detachable cable
Solid build
Fantastic midrange, it's really well done
Covers all of sound spectrum well
Forgiving on bad recordings
Solid and textured bass that doesn't overpower the midrange. Bass to midrange balance is great IMHO.

Cons:
Ergonomics
Memory wire is a PITA and causes microphonics if not situated perfectly
Lack of micro details
Treble is not bad, but not on par sq wise with the mids and bass.
Gives a "in head" soundstage
It was a PITA getting a sealing tip that worked with the housing design and over the ear memory wire. I had to use an olive tip from another set of iems.

The pros far outweigh the cons, and opinions could change the more I listen to them.

The fitting really kill it for me, other than that I'll take it over SE215 if I have to choose between the two.

That cheap memory wire completely ruins the purpose of over the ear iems for me. I'm going to try some ear guides over the memory wire when I get home this afternoon. The angle of the hozzle on them isn't very well placed either.

I had to take the memory wire completely off of my moxpad x3 in order to be able to wear it and keep a seal. After removing it, it fits great.

The Sony h3 is the only memory wire I've tried that actually improves the fit rather than ruining it. I think because of higher quality and more forgiving materials.
