From what I read Hyperion would be better for pop. This is H20's post.
"Tenore is very good, the reference pair I have sound great. The difference with Hyperion is while it shares similar tonality (to a reference Tenore) Hyperion has more body to the mid-range, vocals sound fuller and the low end has better texture and clarity downstairs. Detail wise they similar but Hyperion sounds that touch more professional and a little more versatile at the same time.
I'm reluctant to talk about Tenore much in comparisons because:
1) Quality control issues with the sound cause confusion amoung the community.
2) The build isn't very strong which reflects it's price. Something Hyperion has completely covered. (At virtually the same price)"
