post #1906 of 2088

Well again, maybe cause i listen to my Tenore with the foam tips I may be getting less midbass. I do think the T1E is missing some subbass and it's midbass is punchy, with good presence, but could be a wee bit tighter, though definitely not overtaking stuff as it's overall quite tight. 

 

Well at 60$ KC06 trounce both ;), perhaps below that...

i'm still rockin the stock piston tips in my T1E and h200 and i can't fine another tip that works as good as them for me.  i just got some vmoda BLISS tips today to see if they could match the softness and comfort i get with the piston tips.....to no avail.

Yeah, the vmoda bliss ones aren't really the softest, are they. I use the h200's at the gym where I want good isolation. I was getting that using the large bliss tips, but occasionally they would pop out of my ears which bugs me. So I've switched over to using medium spiral dots (which are soft) on the h200's and they sound great and stay in my ears better, but I lose that uber-isolating seal. Can't win dammit!

ght.

+1. i have been a T1 fan since day one, for the price the sound is good, but they got absolutly nothing on the Ostrys,.
It only took me a few seconds with both Ostrys to notice the huge diference in Sq between both, of course they cost more. Iwill keep my T1 for future comparations or when i need something to use while i am cycling.

Cant comment on the Tenores since i am waiting they arrive but i would expect they should much better than the T1e and closer/better to the Ostrys.

they are pretty soft, but not quite as soft as the pistons tips.  the bore on the pistons is also a bit wider than other tips i've used.  they bliss' are softer than the whirlwind type that came with the T1E.  the bliss' will work fine, but i'm still going to be on a quest to find the ultra floppy  brown supersoft tips i crave.  :)

I just switched to Comply tips on my T1e and that has improved the seal and the bass. My biggest negative on the T1e is the short barrel and the resultant difficulty in getting a proper seal.

Between the 2 iems, tenore has a boomier bass for me. T1e has a cleaner sounding high end. Tenore is warm and smooth while T1e feels more clinical.

Both are great imo and the tops in my modest collection. I was thinking of Duoza as my killer iem. Now I guess Kc06 needs consideration as well.

@luberconn is correct. The Piston tips work are magic with the T1E. Add some foam and even better seal.

Cool. I will try the Piston tips. I am not using my Pistons anymore so...
post #1914 of 2088

Would be great to find somewhere Piston tips to purchase.. I was dumb enough to dump them because they sounded schiit with the Pistons. :frown:

Would amping them through my E17 do them any good?

The E17-T1E would be a great match.

 

It will warm the sound and tighten things up. 

 

Still to this day my E18-T1E is one of my favorite things to listen to.

Ha damn. Wouldn't have expected that. +6 gain or no gain?

Going to try it out later.

 

Thanks!

No gain.

You are more using it to color the sound, and just a touch more power will make things tighter sounding.

Enjoy

Great! Thanks for the reply.

Will report back later :)

added this to my review...

 

Here is my apparent perception of the T1E's response. To note, the peaks here can be located elsewhere past 7k, due to difference in insertion depth. As you can see, while there is quite the bass hump, because it is located in the upper subbass, this IEM remains quite clear. I find that there is some low sub-bass missing but it's not too bad. There is a 3k peak which makes things quite crunchy, but also a bit edgy. Also to note is that the latter two peaks are tamed with tips quite well, but the 3k peak seemed to remain for me. Treble rolls off past 10k, so it lacks some air.
