Now you are just being facetious. Or just testing me (more likely). Although the percussion is a bit off... And if you were going to pick an Elton track, well...

Love it. Seriously. Transfixed, tbh.

http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Rhythm+Of+The+Heat/4iS5fn?src=5 (the working title of this song for a long time was "Jung in Africa".)

 

 

The live version from 2011 on MOG is wonderful.

From MOG, live 1983. Excellent. 

 

music, thank you for an evening of phenomenal music.

 

And for those annoyed at my multiple posts, I challenge you to listen to each of these tracks through your Kaedes (or Kuro/Sui)s, and you might find yourself (much) less annoyed at me.

I wonder what will replace Kaede or is he not going to come up with another statement product?

Hey woodacns, thanks for the kind words. (...and those you left in a certain 'incoherent' thread)

Glad to hear you enjoyed some of the music I posted. A few comments:

a)  If you haven't heard Tool's Lateralus, you really must get it — a great album indeed.


b)  Sons of Pioneers is a phenomenal track, and the album it's taken from, Exorcising Ghosts, is a compilation of sorts, which, to me, covers material from the best Japan years. Not so sure the whole thing would be your cuppa, but in time it may well be.


c)  School is the opening track of Crime of the Century, a superb album — you must get that one.


d)  Yes, Hijo de la Luna is a fantastic track. The album's quite good but my guess is you might not ultimately enjoy it that much — you certainly won't find another track quite like that one, that's for sure.


e)  Haven't heard that version of Rhythm of the Heat, but PG IV (known in the US & Canada as "Security") is my favourite PG album.


f)  Yes, that 1893 version of Biko is pretty good, but I personally still prefer the original studio version (taken also from another great album, PG III, and my second favourite by PG, though critics might actually consider this to be PG's best album to date, or perhaps "So", which is definitely more accessible)

You old people flirting are so cute.

I don't think I've heard another phone (including my beloved HD800s & K3003s) render this track quite like the KAEDEs — of particular note is how they handle the busy passages in this track, with aplomb, simply brilliant all round: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/The+Start+Of+Something+Beautiful/2GgWFW?src=5

As I am completely not attracted to the avian persuasion, I would actually consider it gentlemanly conversation regarding fine art, over a scotch & cigar. Thank you very much.

Moving up the ranks...or just demonstrating some personality?

 

I'll have to listen later.

Yeah, same here — I very much doubt Mr woodcans will ever become my third wife.

Well, I did mention another track (can't remember which one now off the top of my head) where the KAEDEs were also more convincing than those mighty two phones. So, I keep reporting it as I hear it and continue to be impressed by these F4s.

Thanks. A lot. That doesn't in the least hamper my enthusiasm for obtaining a pair of incoherent iems.

(** I think someone should rename this thread "The Lone & Very Cheerful Sparrow Thread", aka "The It Hurts So Much This Thread Doesn't Get As Many Views And Posts As Joker Or Dsnuts' Threads Or Eke's Recent ASG-2 Thread Thread" — and then people wonder why I'm soooo grumpy… which, sadly, always leads to me looking soooo much older. **)

 

Thanks for the links music_4321 . These are my personal favorites where I found the Kaedes perform blissfully good . Simply gorgeous renditions by the Kaedes. These phones are so musical !

Kaedes are fun fun fun to listen..I can simply describe them as being 'effortlessly disciplined' like a master stroke from a calligraphy brush..so much done right!

I am finally back home and rolling tips. The large TF10 are pretty good as Lee suggested but I still like the large Heaven VI B tips the best for silicon. One way to test tips is to put a Comply in one ear and a tip in the other. On the theory that the Comply is the intended sound signature, it is interesting to see how the sounds then differ in the left and right ear. This method also allows for subjective comparisons of different tips.

 

I do find that the Complys sound very good. Of all the silicon tips that I have tried, i.e. Sony hybrid, Heaven VI and TF10, I find that the Heaven VI most closely matches the Comply and is otherwise the best sounding to my taste.

 

(Someday I intend to test the Ortofons...)

The comply ts-500 also works very well with the kaede. They're smaller and more comfortable. 

The ortofons make the kaede sound thinner in comparison to the kaede but is much more comfortable.
