Thank you for replying! I am using AT IM-02, and so far I loved the sound of it but sometimes am thinking of trying a different IEM and a different sound sig, am wondering if this one is much better than IM02 or somewhat same SS. I am thinking of getting one but still trying to read the reviews am finding online... still undecided ATM. Would you recommend this for me? or maybe a diff IEM? my budget is only up to $150. Am looking for something that has some bass but not too bassy, IM02 is just ok for me when it comes to bass...

Can not compare to those since I do not own them. IM-02 has good reviews.To me TE 05 has rather nice sub bass, there when needed, not too much, but I can "feel it" at times. Mid bass punchy, very nice mids and highs. They sound more complete sonically tham my other IEM's and over ears I own (RHA MA750, Sony MDR35, AKG open on ear). Spacy and detailed. Deep bass and the over all clarity and space is what keeps me coming.

My TE-05 have developed a cable fault causing no sound in the left side, anyone know of where to buy a cheap cable replacement in the uk?

Pulled the trigger on this and i'm glad I did! This is by far my fave IEM ATM, it used to be IM02. If only the isolation is much better than this. But I can live with it. Bass is there and I don't even use an amp. I plug this directly to Sony nwz-a25 and what a good combination it is. Am sick of my heart will go on but when I heard it using this, I was amazed. Heard something that I didn't hear using IM02. Love this IEM.

How are these compared to Fidue A73?

(I hope this isn't considered necroing, it just felt silly to start a new thread about them when a semi-official one already sort of exists).

 

So, I've been hearing on many reviews that they are great, but also that in some way, they seem to lack "coherence". I heard one person say that they tend to leave things laying around, instead of forming a shape out of them, which they said might be a problem for more complex music. Similarly, another person said that their sound somehow lacks "body", which seems like it may very well be connected. Can anyone else attest to this? I guess it's possible that they seem that way since a I've heard lot of people also describe them as very airy, detailed and somewhat analytical, which certainly isn't a bad thing for me. And if it is something bad, it probably won't put me off of buying them, since they seem to be quite amazing for their price, but I would like to hear what other people who own them think.
