The discovery thread.! New NiceHCK DZ7 1DD+6 BA iem impression by ericp10. Page 2153 - Page 1623

OK, request by my man Vlenbo for Classic Rock, since I'm doing some ELO, here's a great start


I have to post the original, sorry



Got the Spirit


Now, I'm about to get into trouble...what exactly defines Classic Rock? Is it the time period it was made? Is it a particular style of Rock (say, vs, "rock n roll")? Does County influenced rock from the 70's count (say, Byrds/Eagles)? I started this with trying to define metal a while back, caused a bit of an uproar...

Well, how about these guys...




If you liked the chord progression of the Move song, this should be up your alley...



OK, enough random posting, as it was described earlier (I liked that random post, by the way)
Got the Alpha earpads, going to try them on the Shure 1540s, supposed to help fit
Getting killed on ebay, keep bidding on DVD players and other relatively cheap gear to use as a transport, have a DA (probably will be swimming in various DA converters soon), bid on a few old models Oppo, someone gets in last minute and gets it before I can bid up, shoot.
Haven't even caught up with the threads yet, read a bit then off to bed.

The treble is smoother and more extended. Overall clearer and more focused sounding. The pistons are decent iems for the price but pretty much sound bad directly compared to the tx2. And I haven't even started tip rolling.

How do they compare to the S2?

OK, just have 1 thing to say...sure 1540 + Alpha Pads=darthsmile.gif
WOW (early impression, but I could get to like this....)

Sound promising. Mine should arrive next week.

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.

I'm afraid it might be as well but time will show .

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
