Lucky you :wink_face:

How're they treating your ears?
They are very warm and smooth so far. I bet that's the first time anyone said that about a t-peos unit!

I get some driver flex on each side, so I gta be careful inserting them. They are however a very enjoyable listening experience, and the detachable cable is top notch.

I think they are really decent so far. I gta spend some more time with them before drawing a final conclusion. I just got them in yesterday.

All good. I'm jamming the altone 150 right now as I type this. Looking forward to hearing the 250

 
I also have the 150s. Quite like the size and sound, but still haven't had a chance to give them a good long listen.
 
Lucky you

The way the cable connectors enter the housing, I find the 150s don't fit well worn up... cable sticks out and doesn't stay wrapped around the ear (lack of cinch doesn't help). Worn down is better. As with the 350, was also having seal issues using stock eartips and Spinfits (either went too deep and then caused vacuum, or not deep enough and didn't seal properly). Found satisfaction using comply foam tips.

Is this the same cable connection as M6 Pro?

I'll check when I get home.

Did you get the 250 or 350 in?

 
No, still waiting.  In a way I'm kind of glad since I have less distractions to finish up other reviews :)
 
Regarding cable, from pictures it kind of looks like the same DC connector jack.  Just wondering if they are interchangeable and T-Peos has a higher quality cable you can use with M6 Pro or the other way around if you want over-ear fitment with T-Peos which M6 cable offers without a problem.

@hakushondaimao: Throw some ear guides on those 150s

Tried. They didn't help. Am away at a conference, and couldn't be bothered to bring the guides as they don't help me. Maybe I just have a weird head...
 
Thankfully they're comfortable worn down, and seal is good with the Comply's. Am going to give them a run with the Spinal Dot tips some time soon, too.

Bummer! I don't mind wearing IEM down. In fact, as long as they're secure I prefer it.

Hopefully we'll get some new participants in the thread after people hop on the interwebz tonight...


See my edit to previous post... I'm very happy with the fit when worn down.
