Ocharaku Flat-4 KAEDE (Maple) - Page 61

post #901 of 1093

Here's another track where the KAEDEs sound off; this, again, is partly (largely?) due to the recording itself where the guitar, in particular, is mastered rather poorly (too low in the mix), and because of this the KAEDEs make it sound even more 'distant'. My K3003s & HD800s, by contrast, manage to just about salvage this track: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Purple+Haze/2qHtOa?src=5

Ladies and gentlemen, here is an example of cognitive dissonance in nature.

This wild sparrow is terribly stricken by the KAEDE, yet he cannot bring himself to completely give into the shill that is struggling to come to the surface. Thus, he posts a bad track for every few good ones he comes across.

Fascinating!

Well, I did admit I was an Ocharaku shill, didn't I? (see below)

Let's not forget our notorious grumpy sparrow dude has been rather cheerful recently because, among other things, he's been getting a generous commission from the sale of every single pair of Flat4s (be that SUI, KURO or KAEDE).

Interestingly enough, all I've been getting are the generous commissions I mentioned earlier but no extra complimentary sets of SUIs & KUROs — all I got was a free pair of KAEDEs.

That would be fine and dandy, if it wasn't in your very nature to aggressively go after shills. As you can't admonish yourself publicly (it would make you seem even more disturbed), you resort to this method.

Very true, but I've come to realise now, as they say—after all these years—, that "everyone has a price".

I'd have thought it would be worms and berries for you.

Ah well. Back to your regularly scheduled shilling/un-shilling.

Oh, but rest assured that the generous cheques I've been getting in the post lately—thanks to the stratospheric sales figures of Flat4s—have afforded me the luxury of getting plenty of worms, berries and even allowed me to have a date or twelve with the odd preeeetty hot sparrow chick here and there.

 So talented the late Mr Farrokh Bulsara — absolutely wonderful job by the KAEDEs… yet again: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Millonaire+Waltz/49VPdQ?src=5

And here my all-time favourite song by the band Farrokh Bulsara played in, rendered brilliantly by the KAEDEs: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Death+On+Two+Legs+Dedicated+To/bCKPe?src=5

post #909 of 1093

Rrrrrright… here's another one of those "not even my HD800s or K3003s" type tracks — absolutely outstanding rendering of this track by the KAEDEs (dynamics, detail retrieval, layering, space between the notes, timbre, all rendered extremely well for this 1973 live recording) : http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/The+Musical+Box/4yuBOQ?src=5

I know everyone's been missing those awfully insightful posts by music_4321 a hell of a lot.

 

The KAEDEs, once again, turning grumpy sparrows into jolly happy creatures — this track, particularly from 1:55 to 3:01, sounds phenomenal through these fine phones: http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/Don+t+Stop+Believin/3WbLGn?src=5

post #911 of 1093

I am happy the g-sparrow is enjoying these phones as much as I am(as far as I can tell). I will have to catch up on his music recommendations soon. In the meantime, I am quite surprised a certain sparrow equals (at least) the wiseness of the owl. Great music rec's. Thanks!

does anyone wear the kaedes upside down on an over the ear position?

post #913 of 1093

I did. I do for the Sui still. Works best that way for me and barely sticks out of my ears at all.

I feel like the treble becomes much more hot when I flip it upside down lol.

post #915 of 1093

Could be because you're getting a deeper fit. I preferred wearing them both this way but the Kaede was simply too hot for me and too unforgiving on tracks.
