Hey guys just asking but hiw do the KC06A compete with other earphones in the $200-$300 price range and are they good for EDM and bass heavy music? And how would the fiio E11k do with them or is there a better amp in the same price range?

The Tenores have the best isolation of the ones you list but poor QC makes it really hard to recommend them.

the T1E and VSD3S are both excellent and easy to run out of any source. A bit different flavours but still not to far apart in overall sound signature. Only personal preference can rank one above the other. I out the Vsonics on top and Hisoundfi put the T1E's on top ( just a hunch wink.gif ).

Isolation is a bit individual due to fit but for me the B3's, VSD3S and T1E is about the same and all pretty good with the right tips.

 

It could be worth it to take the $16 jump and just go for the B3's but I plan to use them without an amp a lot on the go so it might just be better to stay a range down. On the other hand the Vsonics are on sale for $45 on Penon making them just a little bit cheaper than the T1E.

 

I take it all the headphones isolate pretty well. The T1Es come with a whole lot of tips but are there any good recommended replacements for the VSD3Ss and T1Es?

Ah great, another headphone in the vast world of in ears to look up. Just kidding, I'll give them a look but it's going to be hard to shake the battle between the VSD3s and the T1E, but thank you.

The VSD3S is better than the SE215, but not the RE-400. RE-400 is more neutral so depends on your sound sig preference, but for a first purchase, try the $50 range. 

 

I think it's going to be wise to stay around the $50 range, especially because any of these will sound great compared to the stuff I've been using. It might be wise to grab the VSD3S while its on sale from Penon for cheaper than the T1E, I love the detachable cable and it's pretty well liked. But, I love the look of the T1E and I always like to lean to something on the more bassy side.

 

Thanks Everyone.

I like the VSD3S with the stock medium tips. Nothing else I tried made it sound better. The Sony Hybrids tame the treble if you find it harsh, but it takes away some details. Meelec M6 tips are good too. Still, I wouldn't worry about anything other than the stock ones. Also, I wouldn't worry about bass on the VD3S. If you need more you could get the VSD3, but it's got a decent thump to it and it's pretty deep too.

I agree, plenty of good tips with the VSD3S and with the T1E as well.

Only reason to get the NarMoo S1 is if you really want a lot of bass/full sound. They can't compete with the others on any other area the way I hear them.
