I've had the KC06 for a week or two but have been busy with other things, like the GR07 Classic. I like the midrange of the KC06 - there's a bump there that reminds me of the Fidue A63. It's not as warm as the Fidue and brighter/less smooth at the top, but the general mid-forwardness is there. Midrange presence is great and vocals are very clear and extremely intelligible. There's also plenty of sparkle. So far I'm not impressed with the bass, which is decent but lacks depth and doesn't sound very solid, or the soundstage depth, not that this is uncommon for budget earphones.
The Heaven II is flatter and more accurate than these and the FXT90 is significantly warmer and bassier.
Please do excuse me as I'm totally a newbie in the audiophile world so I might not use correct terminology.
The KC06 is V shaped? You did mention FXT90 is V shaped too in your website.
I actually dislike high levels of treble because it sometimes pierces my ears? I have a pair of speakers that has treble control on it and when I increase it, I totally hate it. I did have a Allessandro MS1i before and the high notes really pierced my ears lol. I think this should be called sibilance?
So V shaped earphones are not for me?
I would love to have an earphone with really good mid range (vocals) and sound that feels really rich and thick. If this is called warm, then do you have any good recommendations? I like really good clarity but don't like high trebles so would the FXT90 still fit into my requirements? It's reasonably priced too!
Or do you think I should get the Heaven II instead? My friend told me that the mid range and vocals are amazing!
Or just top up for the Yamaha EPH-100 :D
