Very impressive! Better in every way, right out of the box?
These Japanese amps are amazing.

Didn't you say somewhere that you tried to take out the internals from the original brass edition and they sound not as good?

Would you say that the housing (brass) vs the painted one make the difference in sound?

Thank you

These Ko Jo Tsugaru exactly use the same Brass body
I guess they use selected or different spare parts , that can make the Sound quality different not only the housing in brass

My friend did it , he took out the pcb board out from the brass housing , the Sq was so thin

The red and the blue has different sound signature ,my blue one more detail and better clarity and overall more balance sounding amp
That's why I choose the Blue Edition
The red edition has more weight in the bass region but less clarity , I like clarity and balance sound quality

IMO

Great stuff Rudi!

What tickled me was how could it be they have three different sound signatures from the original brass, blue and red kojo.
Even the ultra special edition / limited edition have no description of their aound signature

This sound quality different is not only Ko Jo .every product like amps .iems .headphones from the same types have not the same sound quality.have always slightly different in sound quality.
They have all their house sound chararcter

The simple way please buy another favorite iem from the same type and you compare to your existhing ones.
Like me i bought shure se 215 le 3 times . I keep ones the best sq .the rest 2 i sold

IMO

Please share your opinion

Would it be possible that the gap between blue and the red sound character narrow down after a burn in process?

Assuming blue is the best of two, how's the red sound compared to the brass version Rudi? Is it better / worth upgrading?

Thanks!

I do agree with Rudi that there is a sound difference between the blue and the red tsugaru but IMPO, it is very very small and it narrows down to individual preference. The important thing is both made the sound silky smooth and I chose red for the serial number I prefer.

The sq different between brass edition and Tsugaru edition is noticable.
Tsugaru edition like sutjahjo said is silky smooth with better clarity and better pronounce in already sweet midrange and cleaner bass region.

The upgrade is worth it . The important for me to upgrade is the sound quality improvement over the brass edition not only the design of art .

Hi CHG,

Is Kojo versatile enough for different genre of music? Say Metal or Electronic music?

Thanks!

I have not heard C435. From your impression look like C435 is the brightest from fit ears
