REVIEW: Ostry KC06 - Page 13

post #181 of 2328

How do these sound with pop music and un-amped?  From the descriptions, it sounds like they wouldn't have enough bass weight.  I found the RE-400 to lack bass for pop.

un-amped (i.e. with only the clip+) they just have a hair of more mid-bass lift than the re400, but less sub-bass. it rolls off sooner and dont have the depth. but take it count, my re400 have at least 1K hrs on them, while the kc06 barely got 100+. 

although, i got to like the re400 for rock and pop (and even EDM! :eek:).

How do these do with Gaming, Movies, typical stuff? Would be using them for pretty long term listening,p robably at least 2+ hours! So how well would you rate the comfort? Anyhow, would these work with just a PC? No amp and such? My current Headphones are kind of hard to drive and need to be turned up louder then my speakers to listen to when worn.

mids are thicker on the ss01, but slightly reccesed (but just in comparision to the kc06).
the kc06 mids are sound more open and effortless and clear. very slightly mid centred (which i find a plus)

in the same way, the treble is very different. the ss01 are smoother and less energetic. and dont have the kc06 upper extension.
the kc06 are definetly much, much brighter. well extended, but not harsh.
some users found the moe harsh/sibilant. but not my case at all.

clarity on the ss01 is very impressive for a warmer iem. but the kc06 are on other league when it comes to clarity and detail. as i mention in the review, the ostry have hifiman re400 micro-detail, at least.

even though the kc06 are more sensitive, they improve a LOT from a stronger source. the moe didnt show much improvement, just some extra depth and detail, but not like the kc06
in soundstage terms, it depends on the source. the moe already sound very 'big' and powerful with only a Clip+. 
the kc06 wont show it's true power with that Dap. but if well powered, they SHINE. much wider stage and even stronger bass response. great speed and with an added Wow-factor.

you'd check the moe ss01 review for more info.

so, all-in-all, they differ a lot in almost everything.
i like the Moe ss01 for more fun, and use them regulary on-the-go as i find them well isolating and more ergonomic when worn-down.
the kc06 dont isolate that much, or at least i havent found the right tips. but the sound is more than impressive. specially with my hm700 or  Fireye amp. i dare to say they're truly Epic! 

hope it helps!
Very much appreciate your comparison! Just what I needed. smily_headphones1.gif

So it seems the Moe might become my On The Go IEM if I decide to grab it soon.

When you say its warm with good clarity, does this mean that there is no veil over the mids and treble?

You don't yearn for more bass quantity anymore?

post #191 of 2328
Noo not really now I crave naturally sounding iems that are very open 😍😎

Quick question mochill, does the gold version come with a black cable (rather than the VSONIC-like bronze/gray cable)? It looks that way from the picture on Penon Audio, but I'm not sure if it's actually like that in person.

So far, for those that have them. How is the strain relief? Do you need to worry about it disconnecting/breaking? Can they survive from dropping from pocket level? Trying to cover all the bases. =D
