Noted thanks!  Will try later.  So far not really impressed with it.

Will burn-in more, and test more with different tips and player.

I've noticed some sibilance too from my Galaxy S3 and S1. It's not as prominent on the S1, probably due to the better dac (Wolfson(s1) vs Qualcomm(s3)). Threw on some comply tips that I had laying about, s200s, and the sibilance is gone. Highs are smoother but still detailed and sparkly. Me gusta. <3

I'm really happy with my TE-05s with my iBasso DX90. They did have a bit of a raise in the treble, but with some blue x-trillion branded comply copies I got in a street market in HK the treble is flattened and the bass very subtly improved, still essentially a flat response as tested with some frequency sweeps. There's more of an airy presentation with the comply copies too, I think helped by the shallow insertion that gives a good seal with these tips. I'd been using double flange tips before which were better than the supplied tips. Of course there could be some burn in at play too. For diverse classical and jazz which make up most of my listening I'm very happy indeed.

I still think the TE-05 is an exceptional earphone too.

How is the MMXC connector? I had really bad luck with them on the Onkyo headphones and ended up having to return two pairs. Do they look vulnerable to breakage?

so far so good for the connectors on mine.

Cool. Still loving them for classical and jazz? Those are the primary types of music I listen to.

Yes, I do, absolutely. They're really excellent for this kind of music, with the proviso that there's a slight peak in the treble with the supplied tips, but which is flattened out pretty perfectly with complies or equivalent. I think I would have found that slight peakiness a problem if I hadn't found the solution. So if you get them it's worth considering that you'll need to change tips to get the best out of them.

I found that comply tips or long tips help alleviate the treble spikes/peakiness, like Meelec's double flanges. The difference is that comply will also tighten up the bass while the silicone long tips gives a bass boost. Bass heavy music on TE-05 w/ meelec double flange hits like a truck but it's still clean and clear.

These were compared earlier to the Mikros 90s. Do others agree with that comparison? What I love about the 90s is they're so transparent and detailed but so musical and even punchy. I little bit more bass and they'd be perfect sound signature wise. Are the TE-05 comparable?

Thank you. Do the comply tips help with isolation as well?
post #314 of 329

I'm afraid that isolation is generally poor on these, so although complys help a little, it's still far from excellent.

Bummer. The search continues!
