They are more friendly to deal with....more than their business. Sometimes the replies get delayed due to some circumstances but mostly they are in time you wld expect.....Rest Assured. I know what you thinkin,being your new/first order with them,it happens to everybody,understanable.

The Pensons are showing at $99.99 but when I placed the Havi's in my basket they dropped to $9.99

My wife wants a set now so do you know if I get a $9.99 set if I make a separate order or will she have to set up her own account

Steve

If you already placed an order and paid for it, send them an email (before they dispatch) that you wld like to buy the second pair,hopefully they will just request you to pay for it($9.99) thru paypal again...might ask for addl shipping?not sure....chk w/them.
Btw,if you reguster again w/another acct,still you gonna pay for another item(not accessory) to avail the deal,which is of no difference and makes no sense.....instead you can use ur same acct that you used first....

Anyone know how the Philips Fidelio S1 compares to all the current rage budget IEMs (e.g. Ostry, Tenore, TTPOD-T1E, etc.)?  Would it be an upgrade?  Innerfidelity speaks very well of them.

 

Thanks.

I did an a-b with the vsd3s and the S2 (which as far as I understand should sound the same as the S1) a while ago after getting a question about the two from another head-fier.

If you're interested in it please let me know and I'll PM it to you.

I personally prefer the vsd3s over both the Tenores and the KC06 so it might be useful.

I've got the Philips S1. Have tried the Tenore. TTPODs are coming.

 

Highs: The treble of the Tenores was too smooth. The Philips are sharper and extrend beautifully.

Mids: Can't remember very wel, but the tenores seemed a bit dry. I love the Phlilips with the full mids, electric guitar chords sound excellent.

Bass: Both produce oh so excellent subbass, the Tenores have more in quantity. I crave for quality subbass balance like an addict does for drugs, the Tenores offered pure perfection on this point.

Soundstage: Philips are with their open design the clear winner here, which is also their biggest weakness, since they're not usable in train or bus due to poor isolation.

(micro)Details: I can't remember the tenores on this point, sorry. The Philips sound quite detailed, although the Moe-ss01 (eq'd) sound the most detailed of all the IEMS I own.

 

Would I call them a direct upgrade? No, not instantly, but the Tenores overly smooth highs made them unlistenable to me.

Thanks for the excellent comparison!  Isolation is not that big an issue (I have other IEMs for that).  Think I'll wait for some T1E comparisons before I pull the trigger on the Philips.  The price difference is about $30 to $50 (depending on where the T1E's are purchased).

+1 on that, but with KC06A faster/stronger mid-bass punch - that shifted the balance.  Never mind the lack of depth ;)  Waiting to receive VSD3 sometime next week.  Will see how that will stack up against KC06A.

 

Btw, got both B3 Pro I and T1E from Penonaudio, didn't take it out of the box yet :(  Got too many toys at once, so I'm exercising my patience since I need to finish HP150 review write up first.  I will be VERY curious how SoundMagic's latest HP150 stacks up against B3 Pro I which could be a close match from everything you guy talk about.  Both need amping, and so far HP150 pairs up incredible well with E11k.  As a matter of fact, I'm ready to throw all my IEMs in the garbage (well, not literally) because HP150 is so good, it has almost an end-game quality sound to my ears.  Just not portable, obviously.  So, I'm hoping B3Pro I might get close to it.
