Took a bit of a gamble and bought some Fostex TE-05 off Amazon.
Straight out of the box I'm a bit undecided.
Will they need any 'running in' period?
Just seem a bit overly bright.

It was my impression that they did settle down with some hours on them. Perhaps more pointedly in my experience they really benefit from comply tips, which bring the treble to a really nice spot.

Thanks for the reply.
Just swapped the tips over to ones I know are comfy.... made a big improvement.
Might be my ears but the rubber tips they came with are rock hard .. bit disappointing really. Nearly sent back to Amazon ..!
Seems these IEM's are quite tip specific.
Just listening to 'Air - All I need' ...... almost back in Spain for a minute ...

Glad you're enjoying them more. I didn't spend too long with the supplied tips. They are tip sensitive, and some people prefer double flange tips, they're still just a little bit treble hot for me with them, but everyone's ears and sensibilities are different so it's worth playing around with some tips to see if you can get a sound you enjoy even more.
