yes, you can find them on eBay and aliexpress, as well as lunashops

Hmm i think I'll get the KC06A alongside the X3 since I've had my eyes on the ostrys for quite some time! Thanks for your help!

Alright I'll look around! Thanks a million!

Those two are an awesome combo.

Kc06a is better for high quality sound, with the x3 being great for bass, isolation and on the go.

If only I knew all of this before, I'd have saved hundreds, maybe thousands on gear...

The Mids on the KC06A do sound a step back in the sound signature.
I wouldn't consider it mid-centric in the least. The Mids are nice, but if you want them front and center, you'll likely be disappointed.

@Kamakahah Hmm, they don't have to be upfront, just have a smooth and engaging presence!

 

@Hisoundfi Haha I've already spent about $1000 on IEMs, most of which were stolen or misplaced.

@noobstone They do have a smooth, detailed mid range. I'd say engaging more most.
Half of the time I'm a huge Mids whore. On some tracks, the Ostry just didn't have the magic for me. Other tracks it really shined, but was always just a step behind the bass and highs.

Based on your preference, you'll probably love them.

That's exactly how I felt about KC06A, great mids quality with quantity slightly pushed back.  Also, find the same variation going from one track to another.  I attribute this to the amount of low end in various tracks.  When a track calls for more bass, KC06A delivers more which makes mids take a back seat, while in other tracks where bass is not as prominent - mids come out on top.

There it is. A better worded explanation than my half-assed input. I was thinking it the way you just wrote it, but the message got lost in translation somewhere between auto correct frustration and my twins distracting me. ūüėĄ

My VSD3S is almost arriving, and I`m looking for another IEM with a completly diferent sound signature.

After reading all the reviews I guess I would love it for Eletro, Pop.

Althought I guess I wouldn`t like them a lot for Rock... so witch you do you guys think should be great for rock listening?

No more than U$70.

 

Maybe Ostry KC06 or some ATH or Sony?

And no Habi B3, I`m not looking for an AMP right now. :popcorn: 

 

---

I can get KC06 for U$59 on aliexpress wich I think is a nice price.

Are any fake KC06?

If i get them on Aliexpress I can save some money, since the curriencies conversion on Aliexpress are much better.

Take a look at IM50 vs VSD3S comparison I just posted here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/669510/the-new-iem-of-vsonic-vsd-3s-impression-updated-by-smailbz/1905#post_10706898 - might be something for you to consider.

 

also consider Tenores.

GET THE TTPOD T1E!!!

WOW, THESE THINGS ARE AMAZEBALLS!

I just got the crystal clear ones in the mail. They are built incredibly well. Housings are much larger than I thought they would be, and oh so beautiful (like a giant remix of the ie800)

Initial impressions:

Soundstage is incredible! Everything is soooo textured and spot on! So far IMHO it is the perfect blend of musicality and detail. EVERYTHING I've played so far sounds hifi and beautiful.

I'm serious guys, the last time I was this impressed with an initial impression was when I first heard the havi b3 pro I, but this time for different reasons.

So far this is the best bass I've ever heard. There's nothing I can say I would do different to improve upon the bass these things emit. It goes incredibly, low, is punchy and is really fast. There's a lot of bass, And NO mid-bass bleed that I can detect so far.

Mids are not in front, but more so than say the Pistons. They sound awesome. I can really hear the dual drivers in each of these being used to the best of their abilities.

Treble is bright without being sibilant. It's detailed and separation is great.

Timbre is awesome!

Drums sound so realistic!

Seriously you guys there's nothing bad I can say right now! If there was one bad thing I could say about them I would but right now I have nothing! For the first time I feel compelled to write a review.

Newheadphonititis aside, I'm 2 hours into listening to these things and until I find flaws, I'm going to say that if hifi with beautiful and impressive bass is what you're going for, these are better than anything I've heard under 300. Check my headphone inventory and understand that I'm comparing it to some pretty serious gear.

I'm going to enjoy this monster for the rest of this evening.

Someone please order these and confirm what I'm hearing so I'm not the only one hyping these.

Oh yah,

PS- the ivery is-1 sounds like crap out of the box, actually they didn't come in a box, they came in the equivalent of a sandwich bag. They have some driver flex. So far the nicest thing about them is the two sets of tips that came with them. I'm gna give them the suggested 50 hours of burn-in and see if I can get my 7 bucks worth.

Ivery is-4 came in too and is okay. Maybe I'm just spoiled with this ttpod t1E right now but honestly I don't want to listen to anything else they're that darn good.

Hmm, I wish someone can compare ttpod T1E and Moe SS01.  I hear a lot of similarities from impressions above, though SS01 were a little too bright for my taste (on par with VSD3S).

I be getting them next week In sexy purple ūüėČ

@twister6

I don't want to jump the gun, but to my surprise these might be my most preferred iem I own, with the main reason being how effortlessly natural drums sound from kick drums all the way through cymbals, and how awesome and distinct each sound comes across.
