O my GOD! Could this really be happening?! My ASG 2 is getting replaced by a 40 quid budget wonder? I can't even begin to fathom... I can't... THE POWER!

I feel like striping clean, running to a small mountain, kneeling down, and screaming "Ooooostryyyyyyyeeee" from the top of my lungs as tears of joy cascade down face in a feeble attempt to gain composure.

Tiss all I wanted to improved from the original!

@Exesteils, can you compare the low end to either GR07 variant?

It would be interesting to compare James's modded vanilla ver vs the A's low end performance.

If the 06A retains the clarity of the 06 with improved bass impact and soundstage, I might have found my new favorite IEM. So far the Havi B3 and KC06 share first place, with the Havi slightly ahead.

Bhazard, have you tried any Zero Audio products?  I'd start with the Tenore, only $53 shipped.

So 2 use for me is for studying and sleeping lol

 

Yea -- depends on where you're using them.  I had to go above my normal listening volume for usage on the train.  KC06 -- definitely not made for isolation.

 

I'm surprised you wear IEMs in the car.  What if there's a fire truck or police car?  You won't hear the sirens and pull over to the side like you're supposed to (or is that only a law in Canada?).  Or if someone honks you, you won't hear it.  If anything, KC06's poor isolation could save your life!

Maybe he means as a passenger inside a car. I think wearing earbuds or iem's on both ears while operating a vehicle is illegal in the states.

yeah i meant as a passenger.. its also illegal here in my country. Nevertheless its a great iem i just like how the mids n highs strikes to my liking. I hope the kc06a doesnt spoil this. I will be ordering one for sure but not now..got exams fees to pay :(

You have the answer Unity. I havent hear the Gr07s in a long time so I can't give you a definite answer, but I do remember the BE's bass line being just a tab bit too overbearing for my taste.

post #1859 of 2270
The kc06A is like the BE but better in every aspect imho😋
