REVIEW: Ostry KC06 - Page 138

post #2056 of 2535

You can get the 'Heir tips' on eBay here from China:

(I have no idea on their shipping times)

I think these are the same too.

This seller has them in the USA but of course they're not cheap.

how's the isolation, comfort and fit on these ? are they the same size with the kc06a ? just different color/design?

post #2058 of 2535
Comfort and fit is great. Isolation on the other hand is average at best (with the right tips) and poor with stock tips.

@peter123

 

thanks for the info! and have you tried the kc06a ? are they the same size ? 

and which has better soundstage and separation ? 

post #2060 of 2535
Sorry, haven't heard the A's.

They do look the same tough and I mean that I also read somewhere that the design is the same but that the included tips are better on the A's.

Comfort wise they are very comfortable and can sleep with them without feeling anything but for isolation i dare say they are quite poor. If isolation is a big thing for you then perhaps other options would be wiser. I just can't seem to be using them in noisy environments as i feel that I am missing alot of details and have to increase the volume which could be dangerous to my ears. I love them alot, i mean it but I use it in quiet places :wink_face:

are they enough inside a bus or a car? i will mainly use them for commuting and walking on my way to school... have you tried different tips ? do the sony hybrids fit them well ? 

 

im about to buy the tenores but i've read something about their quality control being poor... so i'm currently planning on buying kc06a

Well people would say isolation is average but for me its quite poor. I cant use it in a car let alone a bus. I have tried the ue silicone tips and currently settled on heir tips from lunashops. I have a friend who uses the sony hybrids on these so am sure they fit well.
 

I do not have the KC06A so i cant comment on that. If your patient enough you could wait for the vsd 3 which I think isolation would be significantly better, I am judging this by seeing that it has a similar shape to shures IEM and they are used over the ears. But have no idea how they sound. 

Heres the preorder page from a site in singapore. http://www.lendmeurears.com/product_info.php?products_id=93&osCsid=800aa84d6f8f8e51582e092d9c4f9029

 

costing only 67 singaporean dollars...hmm interesting

Just received my KC06.... Initial impressions are very positive..... I have dunu 1000...Compared to Dunu, they are more upfront... More in your face type.... In dunu all sound seems to come from far point giving better sense of space.... One thing I have noticed about KC06 that they are easy to drive and gud to listen at low volume.....

Jriver + virtual subwoofer setting = poor or waiting mans KC06A

 

Fills out the missing low end thump quite nicely.

I think that's like what I am getting with KC06's off of the C3 with C&C BH amp (with LF=on and SF=on). I'm really not missing the bass at all with my KC06's. And even off of the clip zip, the KC06's sound rather amazing.

+1 un-amped these still sound amazing and the longer I listen the better it gets! Treble is even smoother and the low end is sounding more refined :S didn't believe in burn in but these make me a believer smily_headphones1.gif

I just got my Tenore and I still like the KC06 better.

 

The Tenore is no slouch though.  You get a lot of goodness for the money.
