They've arrived.  It's going to take some time to give a full comparison between the two.  I've started mostly with KC06. 

 

I will say this about KC06.  They're euphoric.  I wore them to bed last night and when I closed my eyes, there were moments when I felt like I left my body and had travelled into the studio where the artists were recording the album.  I could float around from one instrument to the next, and visit one vocalist at a time.  Everything was so clear.  It was like an awakening for me.  The crazy thing is I couldn't sleep, my heart was racing in the excitement of what I was listening to.

 

Now you're thinking -- ebrian is on drugs.  No, I'm not on drugs unless you consider Ostry KC06 a drug.

 

The Ostry KC06 are gooood.  Very good.  The clarity is fantastic.  Bass is not basshead level.. i think it lacks the "thump", but it's there.  I mean you can hear all the ranges; it's just not thumping into your ear like a basshead iem would.  The soundstage is decent, not mindblowing like S680, but it's there.  The mids, highs, lows are all great.  Timbre is stellar.  I've tried wearing them over the top and normal, it's about the same.  I'm using the Sony Hybrid greens right now.  Heirs are on the way but it could take another month for all I know.  While I was lying there I felt a tinge of guilt because of the "eargasms" I was experiencing over and over again.  I felt like I was cheating on my wife. 

 

I listen to all sorts of music -- Lorde, American Authors, Kelly Clarkson, Alabama Shakes, Imagine Dragons, Dr. Dre -- currently on my playlist.

 

Hype on friends, hype on!

Nope. I was thinking "Cool, someone else had the same experience as me!"

Did they suddenly spike a bit on price? I mean, last time I checked, They were around $65 or so. Now some where around $70 at some places.

post #1492 of 2535

Yeah some jumps in prices, from all the positive feedback this thread in particular has been generating I would imagine the kc06 sales had gone up quite a bit and cause some shortages if not kust pushing some retailers to sell out.

The KC06 is not my "best" IEM...but it is my FAVORITE IEM. 

 

I might sell my other IEMs to buy more KC06s. 

 

It's like falling in love with an average looking girl with a great personality and super sense of humor...and dumping your gorgeous but conceited girlfriend who gives you nothing but pain.

Beautiful! I've been doing a bit of ab'ing with the M200's, and basically they are both great. Slightly different SQ characteristics, and it may simply come down to preferences/mood/genre as to which one is liked better. What the KC06 has going for it though is it's physical profile which for me is great, and they will end up getting more airplay due to that alone. So yeah, some of my super-model girlfriends might bet getting a wee bit nervous about now lol.

Silver pair just came in from Shenzhen.  Bought them just before the price hike but based on what I'm hearing currently, I'd say they're worth a good bit more than $70 regardless. Haven't had much time to use them but I'll just say initial impressions are positive, and they easily best the JVC FX101 in every category except maybe bass quantity.

 

Don't have the Ety hf5's on me right now but I'll probably A/B them for the sake of it later.  Probably not the best IEMs to compare to but my only point of reference at the moment.

No no no, you guys aren't hyping enough. KC06A's will be EndGame™ in spades!

They'll make SR009's sound like toys in comparison. Scratch that, they'll make real life sound like 12bit mono audio recorded in a cardboard box using the Sony XBA H3 mic.

Not even Vsonics super duper bio-cellulose laced diamond stitched carbon nanotube woofer with integrated beryllium backed ceramic tweeter will stand a chance.

KC06 Alphas
Featuring UltraReal™ technology. Why match real life when you can exceed it.®

I can't even begin to fathom the disruptive power these jewels will have upon the market when released. Businesses will crumble, long standing family ties shall be broken, tears shed, nekomimi's abandoned.

None shall be spared, no mercy given, the messiah has arrived.

The kc06a shall transcend all other headphones and turn us all into jello like sentient sound life forms.
