Both the VI and the Ocha phones have really natural sounding timbre, but the VI is more vivid. When I listen to strings and piano on the VI, they sound far richer comparatively compared to the Ocha phones. I've actually never since heard pianos and strings rendered in quite the same fashion as on the VI. When I mention a rich sounding midrange I don't want to imply that it's lacking for detail or overly smooth/lush, cause it's not. It straddles a fine divide between texture and creaminess if that makes sense, that's kinda the magic of the Heaven phones IMO.
As for differences between the SUI/KURO... I had both phones in my possession for some time, and actually rather struggled to spot any meaningful differences between the two. The KURO seems to fill in a bit more of the midrange compared to the SUI, but other than that, I was kinda hard pressed to tell the difference between the two. I think the differences between KAEDE to SUI/KURO is more dramatic than SUI to KURO.
What are you talking about. Can't become a popular Head-Fier if you don't wax poetic about FAD these days. You freaks have no shortages of rabid fans for your niche product within a niche product.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You don't come to a FAD party hoping for unrelenting accuracy man, you're there to drop acid, fondle carpet samples and make out with art school rejects; you're there to feel
