Thanks! Glad to see the KC06 are still rocking and weren't just another 'hype'

Yea the mod works great, but I had to stick a needle in because it was a bit too much.

Thanks for posting it, hopefully this will lead to more people finding what they need to know before they jump aboard the hype train.

post #2245 of 2280

Hey guys, I took off the scotch tape mod yesterday because I forgot how awesome these iem's sound without it.  I have to say I highly doubt I'll be going back to the mod.. I forgot how natural these things sound.  Ostrich fugue state here I come!

Although I'm still loving the kc06/tape/pinprick combo, I will prolly try out stock again. What the heck - 2 square mm of scotch tape is cheap lol!

Did you ever do the pinprick?
post #2247 of 2280

Yea I did the pinprick although it was a very tiny hole.  I did about as much as it took to break through the tape and that was it.

 

Perhaps down the road I'll perform surgery again to try a bigger hole?

KC06 just hit DX for 55$

Good deal, but anyone interested in Deal Extreme should be aware the shipping times may be excessive.

I did about the same as you, but the "pinprick in tape" mod is pretty in-exact at best lol. A bigger hole probably would have worked out better for you. Then again, you are enjoying them most without the tape at all, so I think you found your answer!
