Bass is so beautiful and powerful. It's so deep and powerful when it is called for.

Timbre coming from instruments so naturally.

This thing needs an appreciation thread. I hope I get time to set this up.

This is a giant killer. I know how people love/hate this term lol.

I used to love my ATH-IM50, but the ttpod t1E destroys it. The only advantage the im50 has is the removable cable.

I've got the SS01, tempted, but unfortunately no spare cash for the ttpods atm.
The SS01 sounds absolutely outstanding with a proper eq. Without, its indeed too bright.

WOW, THESE THINGS ARE AMAZEBALLS!



I just got the crystal clear ones in the mail. They are built incredibly well. Housings are much larger than I thought they would be, and oh so beautiful (like a giant remix of the ie800)



Initial impressions:



Soundstage is incredible! Everything is soooo textured and spot on! So far IMHO it is the perfect blend of musicality and detail. EVERYTHING I've played so far sounds hifi and beautiful.



I'm serious guys, the last time I was this impressed with an initial impression was when I first heard the havi b3 pro I, but this time for different reasons.



So far this is the best bass I've ever heard. There's nothing I can say I would do different to improve upon the bass these things emit. It goes incredibly, low, is punchy and is really fast. There's a lot of bass, And NO mid-bass bleed that I can detect so far.



Mids are not in front, but more so than say the Pistons. They sound awesome. I can really hear the dual drivers in each of these being used to the best of their abilities.



Treble is bright without being sibilant. It's detailed and separation is great.



Timbre is awesome!



Drums sound so realistic!



Seriously you guys there's nothing bad I can say right now! If there was one bad thing I could say about them I would but right now I have nothing! For the first time I feel compelled to write a review.



Newheadphonititis aside, I'm 2 hours into listening to these things and until I find flaws, I'm going to say that if hifi with beautiful and impressive bass is what you're going for, these are better than anything I've heard under 300. Check my headphone inventory and understand that I'm comparing it to some pretty serious gear.



I'm going to enjoy this monster for the rest of this evening.



Someone please order these and confirm what I'm hearing so I'm not the only one hyping these.



nice first impression. for me, first impression was actually quite bad because of how they sound with metal. but after a 20 hours of burn in, i actually like them but only with some songs. not for metal tho. the treble is too hot for my taste for metal. oh and from my experience with these, it need amplification. it sounded bad straight from my colorfly c3.

Nice impressions about the tt1e Hisoundfi, curious about a pair now.

 

Gave the penon iem some more burn in today and yesterday. When I first got them the mid bass was a bit too bloated for my liking but seems now it has settled down. Still a bit powerful and bleeds into the mids and gives a dark signature but some time away has been nice. For $10 they have are quite a value. Still getting driver flex issues when inserting though.

No driver flex on the penonaudio iem for me but they are very nice sounding iem and the midbass has disappeared on mine, I have 11hrs so far and didn't reach the recommend 200hrsūüėÉ

got to say the t1e is really good for the money. pretty disappointed that its not good for metal tho coz 99% of my library is metal. really hope the treble get settle down after burn in. but really, with songs like radiohead - no surprises, this thing really really blow me away. sounded fantasticoo

also consider Tenores.

Nice review, I`m not really interested in Tenores after everythink I read about them.

 

Now I should decide between KC06 or IM50 :tongue_smile:

BTW witch one do you think is better for rock?

TTPOD vs IM50, can you please give a quick impression/comparison about lows/mids/treble?  I know you are on honeymoon with ttpod and it's a new toy syndrome (always gets me as well lol!!!), but still curious about comparison in reference to mid-bass punch (IM50 is a power house, almost a bit too much) and brightness of upper mids/treble since to my liking Audio-Technica (or I should say Moe's who designed those drivers for AT) got it right with a perfect balance.  I'm afraid T1E might be as bright as SS01, but hoping it's more like IM50 which would be ideal.

Mo, you got some magic burn-in process to make mid-bass disappear, brother ;)  30hrs later, mine is still there after a combination of free-air pink noise burn-in as well as listening to my usual edm tracks.

I'm so sick of this imbalance issue and volume drop on my Tenores. Do the Bassos have this same issue? I sure wish the USPS would hurry up with my Doppio already! I'm irritated with the Pistons being my go to IEMs because my Tenores can't behave normally.

@twister6

I'll do an a-b comparison in the next couple days. I'm going to enjoy this t1E for a while.

Right now going off memory this ttpod t1E is superior in bass quantity and quality.

Mids are epic on the im50 but right now I'd say it's a draw. I gta revisit my im50 before I come to a conclusion on this however.

Treble extends better and is crisper on the t1E. I like it a lot more than the im50, as I felt that the one thing the im50 lacked was top end sparkle.

Soundstage, the t1E destroys the im50. I thought the dual drivers of the im50 made a great Soundstage, but the frequency response and tuning makes the Soundstage on the t1E superior.

Build quality I prefer the t1E. This is opinionated because I dispise memory wire, so much so I ordered a replacement cable without it for my im50.

I will get more into a-b comparisons later. I'm going to enjoy this beast of an IEM for a while.

Cheers
