Ocharaku Flat-4 KAEDE (Maple) - Page 60

post #886 of 1081

Please don't hate on me if you make it decision based on it. I liked it over the AK100 however it has few glitches that might annoy some. I personally like to see a revision of them with the same design philosophy. Also having got to try the other opamps on them muse01 is the one I felt is best sound, 627 was too mellow and lack treble detail and muses02 will honestly it was the same as 01 to me. 

I never got to try the 12V edition, I assume that is better?

Also I finally figured out today what your avatar is, gentle giant cover.

I doubt that I will have to hate you as I sold my CLAS a long time ago to move away from mega-stacks - or so I keep reminding myself.

 

Yep, that is a Roger Dean classic, UK release of Octopus only.

Not convinced by the recording itself plus the added sonics created by the place the piece was recorded in ("at the Hamilton Mausoleum, which many claim has the longest lasting echo of any man-made structure in the world. [The] Kronos [Quartet] perform "Tusen Tankar (A Thousand Thoughts)" during rehearsal")

 

Tried it with my K3003s and wasn't convinced, either, but I can see others appreciating / enjoying such acoustics — perhaps a better recording and I might actually enjoy it more.

 

The KAEDEs do a superb job on this one: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Haydn+String+Quartet+Op+76+No+1+adagio+Sostenuto/52u3J1?src=5  (I have always preferred the real sounds of strings, and here the KAEDEs render this piece wonderfully)

Dear music_4321. I think you've found your very own GR07.

Talk about low-end authority by the KAEDEs: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/The+Ink+In+The+Well/41Xp2T?src=5

audionewbi, sorry as per music_4321 above, the live recording here on YouTube ain't the best and doesn't really show the Kaedes at its best. I actually find it somewhat harsh to listen to on my Kaedes actually and switched to my 334's and somewhat more tolerable.

On a different note, I've been enjoying Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" album with the Kaedes quite a bit.

P.S. no mocking my song choices :p.

The one thing I've really enjoyed about the Kaede is that is better built than the Kuro.  Nothing is peeling off from day to day use etc.

 

These are definitely the strangest IEMs I've ever had.  I've been going through some of music_4321s tracks off MOG and the Kaedes are outstanding with them.  They sounds significantly better than using the LCD3s.

 

Again, my only issue has been that every once in a while, I hear a note or two that push me straight out of the music.  I still can't figure out when or why that would happen.  The Kuro did not have that issue.  I would have to admit that when the Kaede shines, it blows everything else away.  I was listening to "Attaboy" from the Goat Rodeo Sessions album and I felt like I was standing next to Yo Yo Ma.

Sigh.. with so many outstanding IEMs, it's making my first steps into headphones so lackluster.

 

My 202s sounded average coming from the C4s and the KAEDE.
