I'll also have the possibility to do direct comparison with the s2.

Looking forward to it. Though I still stand by my opinion that these will be like a little brother to the S2. Except maybe the buttery smooth treble part.

Kc06a shipped😁

Having 2nd thoughts about the 1540 and the pads, initially bass power knocked me out, but listening more, I think it loses some of openness, clarity the phones have, probably put the velours back on.

Well, it will be best if someone who currently owns the S2 compares them coz I don't trust my audio memory that much. At any rate the TX2 is easily among the best bang for the buck iems given its $40 price tag. I also hope you get yours fast coz I remember how when mine was shipped I also said it should arrive next week but Hong Kong Post pulled another one of its numbers on me and I waited a whole month for it to arrive.

Where would you rank the TX2 amongst iems you own or heard? It sounds very promising, especially for $37.

 

I'm just wondering how it will fit in my Havi/Ostry/TTPOD rotation of the best "budget" iems I have now. With the Dunu 2k coming soon to me as well, I might not have a need for it.

Well, it's still early to pass final judgment, especially given that I have barely started tip rolling and so far the only direct comparisons I did were few short ones yesterday with the Pistons and the VSD1S/VSD1LE. Otherwise, it's definitely one of the best I've heard in this price range.

Now, whether you need it is a different question coz this is head-fi - we all need more audio gear :tongue_smile:  I personally just like to get the occasional budget iem I'm interested in to keep my audio addiction in check, otherwise the N4 is doing all I want so I'm cured from the upgraditis for now. But the fact that I've been almost exclusively listening to the N4 for so long and the tx2 still impressed me should speak for itself

I have the TX2 on order, have the S2 around somewhere, check them out when the order arrives. Went back to the felt pads on the Shure 1540, better balance overall than the big pads, also not as hot.

Yeah, I still got my S2's so I will be able to compare them side by side.

 

My pair left HK two days ago so with some luck they should arrive next week ( as should the KC06). :popcorn:

Just popping in again. Decided for the kc06, but before I pull the trigger I want to know the difference between them and my current IEMs. 

 

I have previously owned the AT CKM 500s, which were okay but they were too sharp sounding in my opinion. The treble really hurt my ears unless I played the music on VERY low volumes (which made it unsatisfying because it was so quiet). 

 

How do the kc06 compare?

i have both but i dont like the ckm500 at all (probably because of the genre i listen to). to me the kc06 is far far better than the ckm500. just fyi kc06A has already been released and on its way to my doorstep :D i suggest you wait for the kc06A review before pulling the trigger

Wait, there are two versions? :D

 

What is the difference? The name suggests they are very similar, but is there any significant difference? 

 

Also, where can i get them? Don't find them on ebay.

the kc06A is a newer, better version (as stated in their website) and it also looks better. i got it from shenzhenaudio.com but i believe it is already sold out. heres the picture of the kc06A

"Compared to kc06, significantly increased low frequency sound field slightly expanded, more domineering appearance"

"Always cost-effective high, analytical good, with low-frequency elastic dive better, the sound field is also big, male good to hear, listening to pop Very Good, very much like"

"Workmanship is very good, good quality, sound than the siege progressed more than a little bit, I think the price is higher than the siege!"
 

Yet to be seen if they are "better" though. And as always, preferences will come into play.

Sidy DM2, a new discovery by Twister6 in the Chinese/Asian thread.  Based on all of the stuff in his profile, these seem to be legit!  $65 from Penonaudio.  Another competitor to Tenore/KC06/Havi B3/ATH-IM50?

 

"Just had to pick up my jaw off the ground!!! Got today a package from Penonaudio (the ONLY place to get your headphone gems!!!) with... SIDY DM2. 

 

Had only a few hours of burn-in, and it's already mind blowing.  Don't even need to use black (extra bass) or silver (upfront mids) filter duct - they do change the sound, but it becomes either too sub-bassy or the opposite way with a complete removal of the bass.  Red filter-duct is "golden" together with included audio-technica eartips - perfectly balanced transparent sound with amazing crystal clear details, even with some bass enhancement extended down to sub-bass and fast punchy mid bass, great treble details, no sibilance, clear/detailed mids (vocals sound amazing), wide front row soundstage (much wider than average).  Great build quality though a bit slippery due to the shape (all metal housing).  Great cable, no microphonics, but surprised there is no chin slider.  The only concern is a short strain relief by earpieces.  But everything else is perfection.  I know, it's a new toy hype :)  I will be working on my usual review for XDA, so will provide a full review link and will post detailed pictures in a few days.

 

So far, I'm very impressed!!!"

 

"IM03 sounds a bit fuller and richer in tonality, overall a little more detailed.  Though DM2 sounds a bit thinner, we are NOT talking about night'n'day difference.  If anything, with a red duct-filter it's almost like a scaled down version of IM03.  OK, we are talking about triple BA driver IEM with a removable cable design and sturdier build that cost $300 more. So if you put things in perspective, single dynamic driver DM2 is an AMAZING value with a FANTASTIC sound.  The only negative is a short strain relief and narrowed down toward the end slippery body (which at the same time contributes to a great acoustics of wide soundstage).

 

I wasn't sure what to get, and Penonaudio guys actually recommended this one to me.  That was an excellent recommendation.  If you think about it, SIDY => DIY-Sound with all the customization you can get from different tips and duct filters."

 

"Silver line cable version.  The soundstage is definitely wide...  I had probably 4-5hr of burn in with pink loop, the sound just gets better, tighter.  Using red filter and supplied large size AT eartips.  I'm very impressed!!!  Can't wait to get a second opinion, from you ;)

This is exactly a sound I was looking for awhile.  I love balanced sound with some bass quantity - this one nails it.  It's not too bright, a bit warm but not too much.  Perfect separation of lows, mids, treble.  Very detailed with a wide soundstage where I can pin point every sound.  Definitely sounds natural to me."
