Some thoughts on the Tequila 1:

Overall a pleasant listen. Warm, smooth, and reasonably bassy.

Is that a good or a bad thing?

From what I understand titanium is a better metal to coat drivers. It's a much harder, more flexible, and more expensive metal.
I have these burning in right now but I'll try to get some impressions on Tuesday when they've had enough hours on and compare them versus the king pro, it01 and brainwavz b400.

From the limited amount I've listened to them, I would say the king pro is the better pair, but I'm waiting to see if things tighten up a bit. They've a wonky enough design that they cause me some fit and comfort issues...

Try using comply tips with them. I like them a lot more with it :)

I'm using my new bee tips, which are knock off of comply. I have to turn the left driver to an odd angle, insert it, and turn it back. I've figured it out now but it's nowhere near the best fit I've had. In fact I think it's the only IEM I've ever had any sort of trouble with, but as always, YMMV.

I get interrupted frequently at work so it can be a bit of a pain for me.
Are these open, semi-open or closed back? For my application I cannot have any sound bleed. Can anyone who own a set weigh in on the sound bleed of this model?

There's some bleed, the backs are partly open, so it's a little more noticeable than most IEMs that just have the bass Port. Given they are IEMs it's a lot less pronounced than open back headphones, but still present.
Got my set in, very impressed with them thus far. Tiny bit boomy for me, but very solid sound for IEMs.
Any update on the ship date?
I went with it. I was really impressed with my Exclusive 5, but the treble was just too hot for me. From what I'm gathering, it's toned down with these.
Whats worse the misspelling or the fact Massdrop is selling them like this!

Don't think it's a typo, it's a portmanteau (resolution+illusion)

I learned something today. Thank you. :)
Gah, these look so sexy. Not crazy about the colors, but they remind me of older Audeze grilles.
Are these supposed to be planar magnetic or what? And when did they start mass producing graphene?
I have no intention of buying these, but it's odd to me that there seems like a lack of information in the description. Massdrop doesn't acknowledge that these are open/semi-open back? And the description of the sound only says they are clean with an open soundstage? Why is there is a single sentence devoted to sound in a drop for a pair of headphones. Hmm... needs work ¯\(°_o)/¯

Some post on reddit said it is not semi open or open , it's looked like it but it is not maybe ? :))
I actually like the red and blue color scheme because it makes left-right assignment obvious even in the near dark. What I don't like is the typo on the earpieces.

First of all, the text should read "HD Resolution," not "HD Resolusion," which is a misspelling. Second, does TFZ really need to emblazon conspicuous ad copy on the side of each earpiece? All most of us want to see in practical usage is L and R (which TFZ has made unnecessary with the red and blue color scheme).

No amount of fidelity will acclimate me to seeing typos on $109 IEMs every moo-hanking day.

Yes, but seeing the identifying colors prevents the annoying exercise of having to check which side fits, saving time for the user and allowing them to focus on things other than right or left earpiece shapes.

BTW: Thanks for pointing out that IEMs are often designed to fit "only in one ear." As a person who owns IEMs of recent and and higher-end IEMs of an older vintage, I hadn't noticed that before.

I find it hard to believe you would assume that anyone hadn't noticed the shapes of right and left earpieces are different. But perhaps the fact that I have very bad vision might give you the vestige of a clue that not everyone shares your immediate ability to recognize left or right earpiece shapes.

One of the things people don't realize is that you can wear glasses that allow you to have near and distant vision, but once you reach a certain level of visual deterioration, the overall strain can make details much harder to pick out. You can look at something that would be obvious to someone else and fail to see it -- not because you're stupid or unobservant, as it might appear, but because levels of detail only become apparent to you with a sustained gaze.

Judging from the visual health of the aging population all around us, I'm probably not alone in wanting a color cues to help differentiate between left and right earpieces in a hurry.
I love grotesquely ungrammatical and homonym-filled documentation, road signs, greeting cards, tombstone epitaphs, etc. But misspelled words on an object I interact with hourly every day -- that might push my sensory-challenged wetware past sanity's lip.
