REVIEW: Ostry KC06 - Page 85

post #1261 of 2535

The main thing is: no matter what you think of KC06 doesn't put you on any side of a fence to me, whether you love/hate/undecided I would not judge anyone differently because I know how wildly impressions and preferences vary. Anyone who took one impression as a final word would be rather premature. The truth of a product comes from repetition and only due time will answer. If you read the same thing many times there's a good chance it's true (but never 100%)


@loan, I know mate, (sarcastic) I was just showing some material to express your comment further.

Anyway, it's going to be interesting observing which way the thread goes! Will the Hypers return? Or..... will the Underwhelmed party remain seated. Click this link to find out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-Zgtm-g4Co

Removed my mod since I can't get it right and made the thing unbalanced frown.gif, on another note, biggest stock tips work really well for shallow insertion.

It's called, creating a foundation for an argument that reinforces my skepticism maneuver. 

 

 

That and....

 

Some hype goes a bit beyond what some people can digest! "A $60 iem can stand against this $200+ iem" and then the hype becomes an absurd toy syndrome argument.

 

Imo, I believe that this will not best, but definitely hang with the $200, it is unfortunate that I won't be able to purchase these yet, almost getting the feedback from the harman return. I think it's two more days after this weekend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

 

you modded them? Shame on you!

 

 

here, follow this ostry's mantra.

 

 

 

 

And don't forget to hide your head!

If only I was in the mood to enjoy that link, only heard a few seconds, but the latest posts changed the atmosphere. :(

 

 

 

.....In addition, I am still ostry less, so the best support I can contribute is this.

 

 

If you enjoy the kc06, at least put it into perspective for others, after that, hype away! :D

 

Then everyone can be happy!

 

 

And out....

 

 

:ph34r: ~woosh~

I very much have put it into perspective vlnebo, many pages ago, it's pretty much like you said
KC06 can hang with $200-250 IEM, and I would take them over Westone 4 as a preference.
I don't believe they will be taking down top tier product  (and never stated otherwise), though certainly give DN-1000 a run.

Well yeah, it's probably not going to beat a free RE600. tongue.gif

But for some people who are aligned with the way KC06 sounds for their taste and song selection I don't find it hard to believe they genuinely think that (it beat some $200 IEM).

I don't think I've ever had cans unmodded ever, I will probably even tinker with SR009 or Orpheus if I ever get the chance to own them. tongue.gif

That is why I'm glad you and james put it into perspective, ekes actually did as well.

 

Others, however, continued to state that "Iem X beat Iem Y" without further explanation.

 

And I'm not disappointed or reproaching them, because it is good to share that their preferences are actually in line with the kc06's signature.

 

 

 

Thank you for sharing that, I hope you didn't assume that my comment was aimed towards you or james, just the general headfiers who did hype without putting it into perspective.

 

And that's about as much contribution I can provide...

....whoah
 
Mind blown.
 
I thought people avoided that thread.... Dang, caught red-handed!
 
 
 
Anyway, that is exactly why I enjoy hype from you owners, not to forget my jelly feelings for those owners as well. ;)
 
Some newcomers will likely blame the owners who did not believe that the ostrys have limits (or the people who did not put it into perspective. Not aimed at you or anyone who reviewed it. This is more of a warning to the ones who did because newcomers are easily butthurt from disappointment and will find the culpable contributors, you guys).
 

 

 

And about the modding, I see that you enjoy it almost to the point of a hobby!

 

.....but as someone said....and I repeat, as someone said...

Hey, why can't it be true? The same hype for the mikros was valid enough imo.

Oh that's the maneuver I stated above.

 

 

The, "I'm creating a foundation based off another person's disgust of this iem to reinforce my skepticism" argument.

 

If someone from the mikros thread hated those headphones because of the hype (because they were disappointed after using them, which is actually true as there were some roosters here and there that attacked the mikros and blaming it on 'Godfather Pata.'), then the only explanation would be the lack of a mikros owner's proper perspective of the headphones. That, and the person who scapegoats others is either an ignorant lurker, or a troll. Most of the times (from what I've seen on the thread) it is actually both the ignorant lurker, and a confused lurker.

 


 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Sure, the mikros best $200 headphones that are marketed for studio quality sound, but there may be other headphones that may overcome the mikro's signature.

 

There MAY BE a lack of bass because of fit issues

 

There MAY BE a treble discrepancy because of fit issues

 

There MAY BE problems with the soundstage/imaging, but it IS a small headphone after all

 

Or, there MAY BE issues with the mikros 90 for some adopters because the mikros may not be that detailed compared to say...phillips X1, or the shure 1540s.

 

Then again, look at the price, it cannot damage your wallet any further than those other heaphones!

 

 

That spoiler isn't my opinion of the mikros, except the bass part. The rest are plausible arguments that other headfiers bring up. I am disappointed at the havoc that occurs at the mikros thread because of the rare "attacks" that arrive on that thread. It can only be because the OP doesn't state the cons of the mikros, or because the newcomers are ignorant enough to believe that the headphones beat all the high end competitors without understanding the preferences of the owners themselves. 

 

 

Also,

 

It can be true, you're right! But it is only true to ....

How about I win another gift and possibly use that as leverage to buy these nice iems?

 

Do you have a gift? :)

 

 

 

In all seriousness, it'll happen. I am waiting for ...something special to arrive

 

and then I should have the funds to buy these and the audio technicas.

post #1271 of 2535
You're going to immediately sell the RE600 to fund other nice IEM?


Cos that's what I would do too tongue_smile.gif

....

 

You just read through my emotions that were typed on mundane text!

 

 

....is it immoral to say yes? :(

 

Welp, enjoy the kc06.

 

To be honest, I'm disappointed that this thread's tracks were halted...

 

The mikros continues to expand in tomfoolery, concrete opinions, and hilarious gifs.

 

 

Guys, if you do not hype this thread with at least 20 posts a day, I think this person will relentlessly bash other iems and enjoy the kc06s.

 

I did that countlessly on those ath-re700s, and regret not doing it to the mikros. So this is a chance of redemption!

 

...when those re600s arrive...

Excellent!

 

 

Whaaaaaaa! Those LE's received incredible hype from.... someone I know! :rolleyes: 

 

Just messing with you! I haven't even heard these birds yet, but I'm hopeful that once you find the right source they will be all that they can be for ya :)

yeppp i still like the VSD1 LEs but i have been spoiled by the gears i recently auditioned so....

.... it's always great to have mo' breathing room cuz like always in this hobby it's in with the new and out with the old meng. ;)

 

No need to be sentimental when stuff is just collecting dust. Off they needs to go. hoho :evil:

Think i have written about/ owned a particular set of iems long enough to know how they sound by heart without still actually currently owning it. Those GR07 BE being one of them.

No problemo meng, just saying how i hear them nothing less nothing more. I just had high expectation for these due to what has been said about them and they lived up to much of the hype despite it still falling a short for me. These are damn good sounding pair of iems, but for $60 i would rather get another set of Logan Martin 90s tbh.

 

See lots of folks that didn't like the Logan 90s likes these Ostriches so it all boils down to personal preference and what you prioritize in your sound. I just am a greedy bastard that want it ALL for cheap, hence my continuous quest in search of true end game materials for myself in the budget-fi arena. :  )

^

You know what, these Ostriches can actually turn crazy warm sounding just like the Piss_tons. Alls you have to do is use the TEAC ZE1000 onion tips on them. The tips covers the bass vent on the nozzle so combined with the slightly more narrow bore of the ZE1000 tips, makes these Ostry sound pretty damn warm and the results in a very similar sound siggy as the Pistons. Though i didn't like it that much cuz other parts of the frequency sounded a bit off. But it ain't too bad sounding, so i can just imagine what peps can do to mod these Ostrys with simple tip/ vent blocks, etc.

... these funky tips right here. LoL

meh i doubt they can hang with the Sony MH1/Cs, so for a couple dollars more i would rather get another set of those Sonys and have them custom cable fitted. ;)

 

Plus the tips on those MH1/Cs are so amazing, the $16 price is almost worth it for those. haha

I think I like the KC06 a little more than you, but not at the levels of some of the fans in this thread.   The KC06 is a good IEM and it is totally worth the asking price. 

^

Yeppp no doubt these are worth every bit of the $60 and then some but like i said the Logan 90s sound much more refined to be on all accounts compared to these Ostrys. And yes i am making a direct comparison between a set of cans to an iem cuz IEMs these days can sound A LOT better than a full size can, so it's a fair comparison me thinks.

Welp from all that has been written on these you can't judge me for having CRAZY high expectations for these, cuz i as much as everyone here would love to have discovered a true game changer. These are great sounding no doubt but i wouldn't consider to be a game changer, similar to how my expectation for those hyped Fostex TE-05 also didn't pan out.

 

Both the TE-05 and these Ostrys are good and they sound pretty similar in presentation as well as technically abilities but not as game changer material as the Sony MH1/Cs was.

yeppp they can hang but not own. Same goes for the DUNU DN1000s and others claims that they blow the VSonic GR07 BE outta' the water. It is far from that, cuz those are no doubt great sounding but they are a bit overhyped as well. And guess who were the same culprits that did that. hoho :wink_face:

No sorry, aside from general sound signature I don't buy any "from memory" comparison. If those memory come from direct comparing them then it's valid, otherwise, sorry.
