I'm excited to try them out..


Cowon J3, and Clip+ (when cycling in a non motorized vehicle park). I have a couple of Sony players also, but haven't had the chance to try them, yet.  I'm sure you will be impressed as I am! As I mentioned, I can't get over the clarity.....good separation, and balance between bass, mid, and treble also.

Alpha, from Buydig.com.....the deal was mentioned here last week. Thanks to the poster!! Buydig had the same deal before, but I missed it.......I didn't miss it this time.

What are the differences between the Alpha and Beta models?

 

(I didn't know there were different models..)

I have no idea what the difference is....but I'm happy with the alphas.

The alpha is shaped more like a traditional westone iem, the beta is shaped more like tradition offset iem's and can be worn over ear or straight down.

I found the ADV to bass heavy and dark and to subdued in the treble range for my tastes, especially at it's original retail price. At the price you paid they would be OK.

PHEW. I love Westone sound, I ordered the Alpha.

WoW......I thought that the highs were very sparkly.....and they were not base heavy, at all. By the way, I do enjoy a good tight base, but I'm definitely not a basehead.

To my taste, they're a LOT more than ok for the price that I paid.....one of thew better IEM deals that I've had.

Interesting, maybe they tweaked the signature. I was an early adopter and almost all of us that bought had the same impressions.

By the way, I was a little concerned about the fit........over the ear and different shape, but once they were in they stayed in, better than other "regular" IEMs.....good for those "on the go." I wore them in excess of one hour (closer to two), with no comfort problems.

They came with several sizes of silicon and foamy tips. I quickly tried the foamy tips but on initial audition, preferred the silicon.....they're the ones that gave what I described as a sparkly, clear sound.......maybe it was the tips?

Not sure if u got lucky and they tuned it specially just for you tongue.gif but I bought a pair just recently(a month ago) and though they aren't muddy per say, they are very dull in comparison to several of my other iems. However I kept them around because they are super comfortable and the bass is some of the best I've heard(in terms of quality) and trust me when I say that I tried a truck load of tips on them(hybrids,wide bore, regular, comply, hifiman, etc...) The treble still wasn't sparkly by any means(though still clear) and it requires me to use a eq whenever I use them just because I find the regular signature so dull(nothing against westone but they could have tuned it much better IMO, the driver is good but the tuning is boring) only thing the default tuning has going for it is the bass(which is good for working out) also what tips did u end up using to get the sparkly treble?? Might have to make them my primary iem again(main use for iem is the gym) but as of right the kc06 blows them out of the water imo

... But anyway as long as you enjoy them that's all that matter smily_headphones1.gif

As I mentioned, the tips were the silicon ones that were originally installed (when I tried the foamy tips [comply type?], the sound was dull....reinstalling the silicon ones, the sound came back to life). I didn't mention that the eq  on my J3 was not flat (as you probably know, the sound can be tweaked quite a bit with the J3 sound processors)   .....the settings were from my previous phones, I didn't bother to change them for the ADV's, because the sound was so good. One other thing, I had been using Mee M-Duo's for the last month, or so. These ARE base heavy. Perhaps, when I switched to the ADV's, the difference made me perceive that their sound was brighter because I got used to the Mee's.....I don't know.

 

After you mentioned the Ostry KC06, I checked them out, and am now intrigued. You didn't mean the new model, the Ostry KC06A, did you. Amazon has the KC06 for $70.....is that a good price?
