Ocharaku Flat-4 KAEDE (Maple) - Page 66

post #976 of 1085
Listening today to Genesis' Selling England By The Pound with the Kaede fed by the Classic and Pico Slim. It is a truly fine IEM for ProgRock.

Hi cooperpwc,

Do you use the stock comply tips or Ortofon/ others?

What is the recommended tip for Kaede?
Thanks

I like the Large size comply TS foamies tips. I am currently using the TS-500 because I have some lying around. They work fine. Ideally I would go with the TS-300 series which would be tighter on the barrel but still easy to remove.

 

For a silicon tip, I like the FAD Heaven series B tips. I want to try the Ortofon.

Interesting.
Will try to look for TS then
Thanks!

I found the combination of TP and Kaede to be a good combination.
Acoustic instruments great.
Soundstage is wide. Deep and layered properly.
Jazz and acoustic guitars / violins / cellos are very nice.

I got my pair yesterday, it is m180.

I doubt there will be m200 (my guess is a few went for trial and few didn't pass qc)
I asked him about having additional runs, and he said no;
He will need to buy the wood for 200 units, and he doesn't think he would be able to sell them all

Well I think they have a winner in the Sui. Especially regarding its price point to performance ratio it's a very good IEM.

Depends on what you mean by "winner" I'd say. From a resale value perspective, I can easily find Sui 2nd hands for sale quite easily at the stores. Kaedes and Kuro's are somewhat much harder to find on the 2nd hand market.

 

Personally for my ears, Yamagishi-san hit it right with the Kaedes out of the 3 models he released. No idea what happened to the Donguri.

Well, today marks the end of availability of the Flat4-楓 from 音茶楽 proper. Seems like M200 was sold a few hours ago. Congratulations on a great run with the Kaedes, Yamagishi-san!

End of a short era. 

 

I am enjoying the KAEDE just about every day. Really glad that I got my 5% of the action.

You mean 0.5% (not 5%)... unless you're not telling us you actually have 10 pairs!

post #987 of 1085

True that. :-)  

 

(The .5% - I just have one pair...)

post #988 of 1085
I'm trying to get all the pairs. Only 67 so far.

they no longer sound good if the owner has more than 66 pairs... you should put the 67th pair up as lucky draw for all head-fi members...

Or buy all of them and destroy them all except for one, number 13.
