Fostex TE-05 Japanese Price, Release Date Announced - Page 10

post #136 of 390

I tried not to comment much about mochill's actions since it might have been taken as offensive.

 

But I did comment on how he did not post the pictures and made a bazillion excuses, though that was overexaggerated, and thus, a huge joke. 

 

Most of us were joking for sure! I'm glad there are caring people on headfi though, even if it was misinterpreted.

 

And thank you eric, I definitely believe you'll get them this week, can't wait at all man...

 

They look so pretty....

 

I sure hope it's better than the ath-im02s though...seeing impressions that it's like a martin logans, the im-02s are even airier than both the martins and the re700s, not to mention more detailed as well.

They're sitting at the post office and I will get them in the morning my friend. And I won't post any photos (so flip a coin as to whether to believe me or not ... lol). Regardless, initial impressions tomorrow. :beerchug:

Ohoho, I'm wearing a helmet in case your hype gets to me. In this case, the a900x's will be enough for a helmet, lol. Thanks friend!

 

(If you aren't posting pics then, we'll all judge you just as we did mochill back then, lol.)

Oh sh--! Let the hype train start pulling out of the station!!! 

 

I have the V and TE-05 in. I decided to try the TE-05 (fearing it would be my least favorite of the two and two thin in sound for me base on DannyBai's thoughts and this reference sound quality talk - love the RE-400 for example, but bass is too thin for me). I didn't go for the stock tips. I instantly put on the UE900 tips that I had on my H3 (with me today). Decided to hit these nice looking babies with some lossless Miles "So What" out of the DX50.

 

Well wow!! The sound is quite nicely full to my ears with plenty of bass! Not basshead bass, of course, but a great level of clear bass that is full and rich. I have to say mochill hit the nail on the head too. He described the TE-05's sound as being like a hybrid sound (BA mids and highs with a dynamic driver for the bass). I agree with him. And this has more bass than the Doppios, which I felt opened up nicely with bass. Out of the box I'm very impressed with the TE-05. vlenbo, you're in trouble my friend. 

 

Now I will take a quick listen to the V, but I'm loving the TE-05's sound out of the box!

Okay, have the V  are in my ears now. I see the V gives narrower tips and wider diameter tips. I'm using the wider large diameter stock tips. The V sounds a bit thicker, more refined, and more mids focused as DannyBai told me it would, but the bass is almost equal to my ears. The V may have a tad bit more bass, but not much. The horns are much yummier in the V. Both are detailed, but I think the TE-05 may win in details (I need to burn both in, and expect more changes in the TE-05). From memory, the FI-BA-SS was warmer and fuller in sound than the V, but there's an echo of the FI-BA-SS - to my ears - in the V, although they don't sound anything alike. Yes, I'm loving the V's signature, but I don't know which one I like best yet between the TE-05 and V. Both are fantastic. If the V's bass is deeper, I think more details are in the TE-05's bass (if that makes any sense).
