Great news! Thanks for posting!

 

Are you really shure that this is the original version?

Have you ordered with this url again?

 

Can't see a difference on pictures to this (pro II), only in the descripton.

Their bass has very good texture and presence down to 30Hz, after which it rolls off, but can still be felt at 20Hz. It's only a tad slower than the fastest dynamic drivers I've heard, but that gives their soundstage nice depth. I tried to put some foamies underneath the silicon tips to increase isolation (which is only average) and that even turns them into slightly bassy phones.

 

So I discovered the reason for this (bolded text). The OSTRY KC06 seem to be meticulously tuned with front and back vents.

 

Blocking the front vent (which I unknowingly did with the foam tips) results in significantly more bass quantity, but also less bass clarity:

OK, just to be sure. If I copy this URL to ugomark.com and go through checkout I will be ordering the Pro version that is the good one?

Thanks, this will be my first Non US website China purchase, so I want to be careful.

I wonder the same. If they're the right ones I'll get them right away but I wouldn't like ending up with yet another pair of the wrong version.

 

Would love to compare my modded pair with the original Pro's so I hope these are really it.

What are your final modifications Peter? I only took out the filters + a bit of foam in the nozzles. A lot better now but still not too happy with them.

I did the same with removing filters and foam and I also removed the resistors. After that I added some tiny amunt of cotton in front of all the drivers and some in the nozzles. I'm pretty happy with the result, vocals in particular sounds very natural and clear. I also tried A LOT of tips and they change pretty much due to tips. I'm now using some Sony hybrids on them. My guess would be that they're still different from the Pro's since mine has pretty good bass impact and from reading I don't think that's the case with the Pro's.

Is it the real pros? If it is, I'll order directly. And also, is it possible to buy on the site or do I need to use like smalltao or mistertao? Thank you!!

This link is definitely the original pros. This one includes the original description, and they recommend using an amp with them just like before. They now have a marking to distinguish it too. Looks like Havi listened to our feedback.

 

The other link is the newest version, which they call Pro II. I didn't like it.

Ok, I've done some research regarding my last post. www.engtaobao.com is the best for international shipping? Right?

The description says so in detail. It matches the description of the Pro when I first ordered it. The other link in their store points to the other newer version (Pro II)

They all look exactly the same, but the descriptions clearly point to pro original and pro II now.

Use Mistertao or another service. Lots of people have had problems with Ugomark

Yep. Matches the description of when I ordered them, and now they mark the boxes to tell the difference

Yep. Get the Pro, not the Pro II. Smalltao or Mistertao would work.
