Besides the RE-400, what would you say is the closest IEM it sounds similar to?

 

H-200? TF-10? DBA-02? RE0? Etc.

 

Thanks in advance:)

Thanks!

 

I quite agree with James. The KC06 sounds fuller and fairly more musical. havent listened to the H200 or TF10, but i have the DN-1000. The Dunu's are a step above. but if you have a strong amp, the KC06 might surprise you, specially in the bass dept.

This was Ostry's reply to me (my translations are in bold):

 

Very intrigued about the KC06A version. might get a pair to compare both

Very nice review Zelda.

 

Having bought the Xiaomi Pistons recently, how would you compare them with the Ostry's? I've bought the Piston's too, and liked them quite a bit. But I find them just a bit too exagerated on the low end. And perhaps somewhat dark souding. I would like something more balanced, but still a bit dynamic sounding. Would the Ostry's be ok? Or perhaps the RE-400's?

 

Thanks!

Thanks for your input. smily_headphones1.gif
I will wait for your further impressions of the other variants of the KC06, before I make my final decision. Thank you!

Thanks for the review. Either James444 hasn't bent my ear enough on these or I've somehow missed it. Just ordered a pair off ebay. Looking forward to it.

I just got the Xiaomi a couple of days ago. so it's a bit too early for a fair comparision.

Where can I get those?

The engraved version? I don't think that service is available outside of China.

Are the detail levels comparable to the DN1000? And how much better than the RE0's detail level, is it?

Nice write up! 

Are they available in korea, do you know?

The DN1000 with the TWFK Dual BA is hard to beat in detail level. So far, I haven't heard something as detailed as those. 

But the KC06 detail is really good. i'd say at least at RE0/Zero level, which is pretty good for a dynamic driver

Don't know if you can get them inside Korea, but you can get them from the sellers  listed in the beginning of the review. they ship everywhere

how do they compare in sound quality to the JH-Audio roxiannes and JH-13's

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say they fall woefully short.

FWIW, I gave Brahms' German Requiem a critical listen last night (the 2009 Berlin RSO / Marek Janowski recording) and the Ostry KC06 did a wonderful job. Tonality / timbre, dynamics, intelligibility of lyrics (pretty tough with choral music) and soundstage / positioning felt all very lifelike and top notch.

 

Mind you, I'm used to listen with top-tier IEMs like the UERM, K3003 and FI-BA-SS on a regular basis. And yes, the $60 KC06 do fall a bit short in comparison, but not at all woefully so.

 

(Couldn't find Janowsky on YouTube, so this is DRSO / Blomstedt, also a great performance)

And how do you know that top-tier IEMs like the UERM, K3003, and FI-BA-SS don't fall woefully short of the Roxanne? :veryevil:
