REVIEW: Ostry KC06 - Page 111

post #1651 of 2535

Oh, there was one last category I missed that I thought people would be interested in. 

 

Power: The Tenores require a bit more power than the Ostry KC06.  What I found is that I can set my Nexus 4 phone to about 45% with Ostry KC06, but to achieve the same level of volume for the Tenore, I need to set my phone to about 75%.  With my Nexus 7 Tablet (for watching tv shows), KC06 is at 9/15, Tenore at 13/15.  At work my PC is at 12% for KC06, and 25% for Tenore.  One of the biggest reasons I skipped the hype of the Havi Pro was because of the reviews about its monster appetite for power.

 

One could argue that the comparison was unfair from the start, since the Tenore and KC06 arrived on the same day and it seems I don't have what people are describing as the optimal tips for Tenore.  I tried tiprolling both but it didn't take long before I entered the Ostrich Fugue State and from there I haven't really had a reason to test the Tenore. 

 

Tips could very well make the Tenore better than they currently are but I have my doubts as to whether they could exceed KC06.  I'm not giving up though.  The only reason I even own a pair of Tenore is because of the glowing reviews I've read about them in HF forums.

"whereas with Tenore sometimes it sounds like the singer is holding back a bit as if he/she has to go pee."

 

LMAO ...peefect !!

Nice group of posts H20!

 

And yes, the two sound great together. Throwing the BH amp into the mix doesn't do any harm either :)

Yes, I'm laying down in the dark listening to Ane Brun "it all starts with one" album, apparently she 'Illuminates the sky' and it 'reminds her of all the people'. (lyrics)

With KC06 in your ears, and tracks like that I don't think it gets much more organic! ;-)

I'm a big fan of Ane Brun myself and as for now the Havi B3's is my preferred IEM to listened to here music with. The KC06 should be in next week so we'll see wink.gif

KC06 is easy to drive (i.e. get it loud enough to blow your ears) but it respond quite wildly with amplification and possibly source.

Yes, she's great, especially from an ER4S, claimed the most accurate IEM in the universe. (sorry, I was just reading in that thread). KC06 will do Ane's voice proud for you hopefully.

Can you elaborate here?

No! You must review! Fo science!
