Perhaps I should have stated as well, I very much prefer analytical sounding IEMs to more musical ones. In fact, of all the IEMs I've ever owned (~15) and all the IEMs I've ever had the chance to listen for an extended period of time (~20-25), the only ones which would likely classify as being musical sounding are the Shure SE215 (sold) and KC06 (sold).

Hence when I refer to the musicality of the Tenore, this is in comparison with other IEMs such as the TF10 (half-half I suppose), Rockit R50, Audio Technica CK100Pro, Audio Technica IM02, Etymotic ER4PT/S, Havi B3. The Tenore might be considered reference sounding with respect to the whole range of IEMs out there right now, but in my arsenal of IEMs, all the other IEMs are almost certainly flatter / more analytical sounding than the Tenore.

I know from my experiences with the VSD1S and KC06 that I was hitting the limit of my V-shaped, fun treshold. Those were certainly a lot more musical than the Tenore. I guess it's just me. I don't like high quantities of bass and I don't like my mids getting drowned out. The Tenore offer me a really nice balance of being a fun-sounding but yet relatively reference-ish IEM. Hope that clarifies things!

Ok so T-PEOS came out with a dual dynamic driver/single BA hybrid IEM, H-150, and there's almost no info on it, even with current prices going for $100.00. WHY IS THAT? Did they turn out to suck? Even for someone who isn't a fan of T-PEOS, this seems an intriguing concept.

It clarifies things, and boy do I like your way of thinking/hearing. I don't like a lot of color in my music either. If the music dictates color, it will be found in the recordings.

Could have turned out to have been an unfavorable sound sig or lack of hype. The audio world has been going by pretty fast for me personally after being away from head fi for a week and upon my return I am already intrigued by many new headphones. Never heard or read about the h-150 and only just recently heard of the h-300 myself, so if I were to craft a theory possibly the hype got sucked out in favor for another t-peos iem.

Peter, what's your favorite IEM at the moment, and are you thinking about getting the Doppio?

No idea - it doesn't seem like it ever really took off. I mean, can you find it available for purchase anywhere? If not, it's safe to assume it hasn't been released to the public and that's the reason for lack of reviews.

 

On another note, please could you stop posting the same thing in three threads at a time? You've done it twice in the span of 30 minutes. If you have a look at Head-Fi's ToS, you'll see the following under posting etiquette: 

 

Do not cross-post. (Cross-posting is posting the same post to more than one thread, or the same thread to more than one forum.)

It happens all the time, genius. I've been visiting this site for years. People who are supposed to be the cream of the cream will post something on the Chinese thread, discovery thread, and a thread that directly deals with the selected item, to give those who might not browse through EVERY page a chance to we included. Take the sb elsewhere, sir. Thank you very much.

Oh and they are available on eBay for various prices. I've got Doppio on the way, so I can't really get anything new until I at least give them a good spin.

Did anyone try this?

Speaking of the discovery thread, that place seems to be dying a slow death? That page used to take days to go through if you missed a few hours, and lately you get maybe three or four posts every couple days. New discoveries can't have slowed up that much can they? I love the Chinese/Asian thread. Always mega insightful, informative, full of cool people, and always brisk with the postings and ponderings.

interesting iem this h150. quite a different approach to hybrid iems. usually the do dynamics for lows, but here it seems the dynamics are for lows and mids and the armature is the tweeter...

Those Datsuns up top are Monster Turbine Gold knockoffs. If they sound anything like the originals, they are the steal of the century at $20. I owned the Coppers and the Trumpets, and Monster hit audio home runs with both.

I agree sir. Quite a pull for me, but I've got to resist for now...

My favorite is Havi B3 without any contest. Getting them has really changed the way I listen too and value my gear, even my full size cans. If I need more bass my current favourite is the vsd3s.

Regarding the Doppios I'm gonna pass. I've got a self choosen limit of $100 for an IEM. The reason for this is that I feel that IEM's get outdated pretty fast. In my early days I did get a few IEM's above $100 and they all got outperformed by much cheaper stuff pretty fast.

Over here it's also almost impossible to sell some "unknown" Asian brand iem second hand so I'm pretty much stucked with what I get whether I like it or not.

I'm really more of a full size can man (preferable open) and choose to use more money on them since they seem to hold up much longer to newer offerings.

The budget iem buying is just fun and I really enjoy being a part of the discussions here and even be able to make some contribution every once in a while.

anyone who knows Korean mind translating it? :D  seems like it's Korean Domestic market product though. English page doesn't have these earphones. nor does it have the other, basically the same iem without the BA driver (Dual Dynamic)... interesting to hear the H150. it might just be a good sounding hybrid...
