Btw, have you tried the kc06's or the tenores? The tenores are freaking me out a bit right now (regarding how good they are).

Nah, you know me - I don't hype stuff - I just recognize the good performers. 

As far as the tenores and the kc06 - I still haven't decided whether to get them coz nowadays I'm trying to stay away from the overly hyped stuff and just wait and see how things go. And I'm perfectly happy with what I have now, so the urge to try all the new iems is not particularly strong. Of course, as usual I probably won't be able to resist the crazy vsonic temptation.

I hear ya. And I know you won't be able to resist the vsonic temptation. But if you ever do fall prey to the kc06 or tenore hype, I don't think that you'll be disappointed. They are seriously starting to make me think that I'll never need to spend more than $100 again for an IEM. Ever. Which is a very good thing for my wallet :)

Well, I'll think about it. I have an interview for a new job on Monday and if I manage to get it I won't be worrying for my wallet anymore.

Good luck! But your wallet has already been damaged significantly enough (and your ears spoiled significantly enough) with the Noble 4's, so it's too late for you anyway, Not that you regret it!

Nah, my wallet hasn't really been damaged precisely because I didn't jump on all those hype trains last year - no bassos, no tenores, no cks1000, no m200 etc., so instead of getting a whole bunch of the cheaper hyped iems I just got one that was more expensive, so I haven't actually spent more money than most people here or than I would have otherwise. Also, my ears haven't been spoiled - I'm as objective as I've ever been.

Not currently available outside some taobao vendors. Other places Luke peninsula Will have them in a few weeks. The first batch was 800 pieces, China only. A few outside vendors on Aliexpress got their hands on a small stock but sold out quickly. Shenzhen as well.

I'll be putting my pair up for sale in the classifieds this weekend when I get some time.

Yeah, me neither.

:ph34r:

Lol. Not that I mind too much, I still really enjoy them and I could have spent much more. Having said that, a purge might be in order!

Thanks for the info. And why isn't it ringing your bell?

I posted a number of impressions in the KC06A thread, including an analogy that eventually got out of hand once placed in the wrong hands - You all know who you are 😄.

They are a trade off. You get fantastic energy, detail, good texture. They are a fun phone with higher end traits mixed in. Yet, they are not without a few flaws: Soundstage, imaging and upper extension all leave much to be desired. Then there is a forwardness or peak in the 2-5hz range. It's right in the range of the high hat for me. It sounds like shoving the high hat next to the singer's microphone (I'm slightly exaggerating). It gets on my nerves. It's influence is heavily track dependant so YMMV.

I was the person that refered to them as having a "wall of sound". I don't quite feel that way after some time with them, but a version of that still persists. I did notice a change after the first 5 hours of burn in, but nothing after that. Could have been brain adjustment.
Altering source and amp had significant impacts on the overall presentation, but not enough for me to overlook the flaws. I don't think these issues will matter for Many people. I'm sensitive to certain terrible frequencies, that's just biology. And these just happen to rub my biology the wrong way...😁.

The other main reason is that the FX850 fits my preferences better at the moment.

Some of these sub $100 sets are really outstanding though. I have the Dunu 2k in my ears right now, and the Havi and Ostry's really aren't that far off in SQ.

Before you sell the KC06A, try a large double flange on them with a small bore. Tames the treble to perfection for me, and doesn't bloat the already deep bass.

 

The Dunu is awesome. 10 min in with the stock config and it is really enjoyable.

Well, I don't doubt that I might like at least one of these but I've been on head-fi long enough to be cautious of all the hype. It's not like the Havi or the Ostry are the first iems that have been praised as giant killers. They are just the new couple in an endless cycle. There's just always something new - new vsonic iems, a new line of audio-technica iems, a new line of sony multi-BAs, a new line of jvc iems with micro drivers, an unknown model of a sony mobile headset, new jvcs with built in woofers, new vsonics, new ath iems, new dual dynamic iems from a new company, new philips iems, a new line of sony hybrids, some new iems from a new Chinese company, a new line of ath multi-BAs and dynamic drivers, yet another new kids on the Chinese block, yet another line of jvc iems, yeat another line of ath iems, yet another new line of vsonics etc. etc. And that's just for the past 2 years and I'm missing a lot of other stuff. 

At some point one has to draw the line and become a bit pickier and I'm picking the new vsonics :tongue_smile:

+1, Getting picky is the only way to keep the wallet sane. Also lets you save up and pick up something big every now and then. Incoming Beyer T1s biggrin.gif But I did jump on the te-05s. Liking them thus far.

Hmmm.. Local shop seems to be having a promo for the Calyx M, pre-order at full retail and they'll throw in a T90 for free, plus freebies.... Awfully tempting, but then again that's a cool grand for a DAP. Ugh
