I wanna grab a ticket, but maybe later.

better grab a pair of KC06 while they are still 328 yuan at TB. You can return them if you dont like them (many sellers are offering 7 days return policy).

Hmmm. Does anyone have any experience with amazon.jp refunds? I bought something from the marketplace but the deliver was taking way too long so I cancelled. Email said I would have the refund by day 3 but it's close to day 5 now and still no sign of it.

Not sure if I should be worried.

But the FX850 still wins out, right? Right?!

I know. But wait, what do you mean by "still"? Were they at a higher price than before?

 

I'd like to go with the return thing, but I don't think it's practical (shipping back to the seller is a pain; I've tried it twice). That, and my parents won't approve.

Because, penonaudio an ebay seller claims that the manufacturer increased the price, that is why the SRP jumped to 69 USD. Im not sure if sellers from taobao will follow.

Well, that's eBay. not TaoBao. A price hike of a Chinese-made IEM by a Chinese manufacturer is unlikely.

Ostry has a link to the head-fi kc06 mega-hype thread, so I wouldn't be surprised.

I like both of em. One being the best BA based iem I have ever owned the FX850 being the best dynamic I have ever owned. I feel very lucky owning both..I think the IM03 compliment the FX850 really well..Both are very nice examples of getting your monies worth in sound when spending over $300..

 

The FX850s are my favorite but these IM03 SQ wise is right there with a different style and take on sound. Again the best AT sound I have ever owned..I know for the price of one H3, FX850 and IM03 I can get a nice high end phone but you know what, I like owning 3 different phones that have different flavors of proficient sound. The H3 being my favorite hybrid, the FX850 being my favorite dynamic and now the IM03 being my top BA phone. All three cover all the bases for me in sound style and performance.

 

I am very happy with these 3 phones and I have a feeling once I get my DX90 it will truly bring out the best qualities in all 3 phones..

 

On that note.. I burned in the IM03 overnight.. The sound on these phones are very satisfactory..Treble Mids and bass all come out extremely nice on these phones..It is a nice mix of neutrality and musicality that results in a smooth full detailed BA sound..I think guys that enjoyed the FAD phones would dig these quite a bit. It does have more of a dynamic flavor of sound throwing out a fullness and warmness that is akin to the FAD phones but done with in house AT development. It is one fantastic sounding earphone..I have yet to hear a tune from my DX50 that sounded off or weak in any part of the sound in the IM03. A complete sounding phone, even though described as being more neutral in FR it has a smoothness,a richness, and fullness  that many strict neutral phones lack in comparison.. I was looking for a nice upgrade on my Doppios and I have found it on the IM03.. These are exciting times as these recent phones from JVC and AT have clearly shown me both companies are flexing their muscles when it comes to sound. We are getting some of the best tuned phones from both houses. .That my friends is good for all of us.

The IM70 is great. Both Eric & myself can attest to that but quite a few people, including myself, had fit issues with it. Which is why I had to sell mine.

My Carbo Bassos have finally died and I don't know what to replace them with.

Have you ventured to the kc06 thread yet?

Can't say I have. Last time I ventured in here the DN-1000 was still FOTM.

post #23789 of 32903
Here ya go. $60. Apparently gives the dn1000's a run for the money. Even compares favorably to the jvc 850's etc.

Hmm, they don't sound like they'd be as bassy..

 

I'd prefer an upgrade but maybe I'll just order another pair of Bassos.
