I think DannyBai will have both soon, but I'm impatient. :)

 

I haven't heard the Tenore, but from what I've read, those are closed microdriver based IEMs. I'll probably order them after shotgunshane's recommendation, but from my experience with closed microdrivers, I'd expect their sound characteristics to be completely different from the KC06. As for the Ostry's cable, granted the lower part is a bit springy, but like I said before I don't have any problem whatsoever with it.

The Tenore is back vented. I don't have them on me at the moment, so I don't know if there is any front venting.

Hmm, I was going by this (Amazon) picture. Doesn't seem to be much of a back vent there, maybe a little airflow through the strain reliefs though, like on the MH1C.

The back vent is on top, opposite side of the strain relief.

^ Oh, I see. Wrong perspective.

It's a small vent though. The KC06 is going to sound more open in bass.

Owning these two really cover all the bases.
post #397 of 2535
Tenore's only have that single vent.

Oh wow, this thread is now on Ostry's site http://www.ostry.com.cn/cms/page?pagetitle=6K-E5rWL5oql5ZGK (review list)

Still no news about KC06A...

Good, this is helping me resist the KC06.  If it doesn't beat my Tenore, no reason to buy them :D

You have to remember that we all have different criteria for evaluating things. You see that SGS prefers the Tenore because it's more linear in FR. It all depends on preferences.

 

Personally, I listen based on refinement, control, detail, and soundstage. The Ostry delivers in spades.

I don't see how the Tenore can be more neutral than the KC06.  Tenore have more bass than RE-400, Fidelio S2, A161P, Astrotec AX30, BA200, GR07 MK2.  Bhazard said KC06 has less bass than the Havi B3, which is already said to be bass light.
