I found a pretty sweet deal on Amazon. I think ( as usual ) they sell it pretty cheaper than other sites... 
This better be good! I am excited.

We base our decisions on the views of few individuals, who have their own experiences and personal preferences. Not nearly enough.

On top of it, there are issues with hardware. Some are apparently broken, though we don't know which. I can't say for sure if mine is broken. Yeah, the bass is not enough for my tastes, but is it a defect? Who knows. Some people who exchanged report great bass, some report some difference but not a lot. Sunggoo states if they were broken, the defect would be very obvious, and people stating some difference is due to placebo effect.

Then we see pictures of this tiny IEM cut open with internals showing what might have gone wrong.

Knowing what I know now; I would have waited. Read impressions from a larger user base, and probably decide that the bass is perhaps not up to my taste and give up, or pay $20 extra and get it. This is not a cheap hobby anyways. Price difference between a decent and great volume pot is $20 for god's sake.

I think it's the same with any early adoption, yes you can get the product sooner than usual and cheaper and the hype makes it quite tempting besides, but you run the risk of defects in the first run and are effectively paying to beta test in many cases!

Just have to be aware of what you're signing up for.

hello people !!! I am new to the forum, but I have many high quality em as Vsonic gr 07 and under, JVC FX100, tpeos 100RR, tpeos h200, 535 shure, westone 3 um3x, Vsonic VSD1, rockit r50 l list goes on.

Originally had one of the defective pairs, but received the updated replacement last week - only to have another defective unit. The left earbud was completely non functional at first. Messing with the cord would occasionally make the sound come back in, but overall the left earbud was defunct. 

 

Extremely annoyed, as the product was shipped to the wrong address, and took an additional week to get to me. Additionally, t-peos will not send out a replacement unit until my unit has been received in Korea and inspected. 

 

Just wanted to voice my complaint, and let you all know that the new manufacturing still is not perfect.

Exchanged my first pair, since I was one of the early preorder-ers and felt there was much less bass than other IEMs I own which should have comparable bass (DN1K, EPH-100, VSD3S, etc.).

New pair arrived early this week and sounds better. More bass quantity which balances out the high end better. Still less sub-bass than I was hoping, though.

Burning in on shuffling DX90 at moderate volume to see if bass improves any further and if highs are tamed a bit.

Ivery is-1 is a cheaper version of the altone200 😎
post #733 of 971
Seriously? I looked at that thread, and no offense but the impressions looked pretty sketchy.
post #734 of 971
But I have the is-1 so I'm saying like I hear them😖...not burned in yet but I guess the is-1 might get abit more tighter and more treble extension so, but so far altone200 is winning buy abit😎... No worries 😁
post #735 of 971
If IS-1 turns out better, I'm sure we'll hear more and someone will get a good deal on your Altones 😉.
