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

 

Yes I am using the TS-500 also (although the TS-200 would be a more secure fit on the nozzle). The TS tips are the way to go with Complys but they are a hassle compared to the silicon tips and they don't quite disappear in my ears like the Heaven VI B tips.

True, the TS line works really well.

I havent tried the Heaven VI B tips. How do they sound compared to the complys?

The Kaede that Im using, once belonged to Lee. He mentioned using UE tips with the Kaede. He could chime in with his views on the tips.

The Heaven VI Bs sound similar to the Complys in my view; they sound very good. I tried the TF10s this morning on Lee's suggestion. They were okay but they seemed a bit harsher in the treble than both the Complys and Heaven VI Bs.

The incoherence is the one aspect that will always make me recommend those IEMs — simply put: it can't get much worse than that.

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!


Glad to hear you enjoyed those tracks. Yes, the KAEDEs are a very special phone and already a very dear one to me; 14 consecutive days of sheer audio joy with quite a few moments of sonic amazement at what these little portable things are capable of—often finding it hard to take them off my ears—is a testament to that.

The KEADEs doing their thang brilliantly once again, as they often do, specially on well-recorded and/or mastered music. Unfortunately, this youtube version only hints at the really superb rendering of this track by the F4s (Note: At least the song—admittedly of the sleazy sort—will please the likes of Messrs shotgunshane & woodcans, though our cheerful sparrow also happens to love this track): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LCS5jp6buH0

And here a very interesting and different version of the same track, which, incidentally, sounds great through the KAEDEs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zq0gDRRPG8

Not the first time this is happening, but I dont know if anyone else has witnessed the Kaedes coming out of the blue with a surprise knock, leaving you floored and speechless. Did it to me now on this track. You must hear the abyssal lows on this track,

rendered supremely by the kaede.

Well, the entire Emancipator album ' safe in the steep cliffs' sounds fantastic on the KAEDEs.

PRat is just top notch .

^   Here's a beautiful track I'm sure you'll enjoy a lot / love — and it's rendered beautifully by the KAEDEs: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/07+Second+Chance/4C6mE8?src=5

^ In fact I quite enjoy that album. Nice string work by Steve Hackett. Thanks.

The KAEDE is quite simply a wonderful phone: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Bete+Noir/53WTdl?src=5

Looks nice but price is steep, to say the least.

Well if you look around you may find a pair on sale on headfi for cheaper. I think idysyncrhono_24 has his pair up for grabs for $350.00? If that's too much for you to swallow then look for an a cheaper IEM. Or maybe this is just the wrong hobby for you to get into :P.

There are 3 Ocharaku Flat4 models (SUI, KURO & KAEDE, the KURO being the latest model). I suggest you do a bit of research and see if any of these might be for you. The KAEDEs are/were the most expensive of the three and had a limited run of 200 units (read: no more KEADEs will be made), so finding a pair might be a bit difficult, and if you do, you may end up paying (quite a bit) more than the original price of ~$900.
