Wow, you and Rudi are lucky. These look super good and am sure sound great too.
I went to our "friendly" local store today to try the red & blue versions and see which would suit my rig, iem and musical preference. Unfortunately I was denied a demo as these are not available for trial, but only meant for sale. Quite obviously I was not prepared to put money (considerable amount for me) on the table without the opportunity to try these.
I feel so sad to hear what happened to you Sid
Of course to buy so expensive stuff without trying is high risk .
Like me before I tried , how can I know that Ko Jo Tsugaru edition is better than my Ko Jo Brass Edition.
If the sound quality from Ko Jo Tsugaru is not better than my Ko Jo Brass , I won't buy because of good looking
For me Sound Quality is very important in first place than looking is the second place .
Sometimes look ugly but the sound quality is excellent , I will buy it
Like Ko Jo Tsugaru the Sound Quality and Looking are excellent , that's why I bought it
