Some people (me included) buy something from a big company (like sony) and comment on how a decently priced product sounds great at a certaon price range. In addition, we include the words "I would buy it at $3xx" or any higher cost to prove that a cheap iem *say the mh1c for example* and the company inflates it....

Id rather keep the reduced price thank you. Hopefully ostry will be generous and keep the influx to a minimum
(The highest id pay is $75 with shipping, but id rather pay the 60 or 65)
Very much so.

The buyers of Beats and all those mainstream products (although some are still good) seem to limit themselves from true high fidelity audio that many of us have experienced in comparison.

..I guess that's why being an "audiophile" is a such a small hobby in comparison to other hobbies..Only some put in the effort to get better..

But anyways, I too, am not a fan of price influxes from greed of a product's popularity. That has to stop.

I sure hope so, and especially from Japan, they're among the most ridiculous with their pricing for IEM. Maybe I should send this to Headfonia so they could hype them more lol.
LOL! :P

Yup, agreed, if only we destroyed the restrictions and inhibitions with our own willpower :(.

 

I also revised my post. If you didn't understand some of my points, I could understand since I started with *If so and so* and forgot to provide *then this will happen*. XD

The review is written in Chinese so feel free to use the google translation:D

Son of a.... I knew it! Mine was one of the affected ones then.

 

I'm back on the train. New KC06 ordered yesterday.

Manufactured by virgins in a newly created province (established just for this enterprise by the State Council) of China.

 

 

It is rumored that after each KC06 manufacturing run, the virgins are lead to a special room where they commit suicide.  It seems that absolute purity is required for production - a new group of virgins is needed on a weekly basis.  This is going to put some stress on Chinese society;  you have to admire their determination and commitment.

Glad to note we're on the same page. wink.gif

Ohh, one has to improvise at times with a bit of luck and chance to be on the same tracks as another.

I wouldn't be surprised if the KC06 is Ostry's technical ceiling with this driver. Unless they completely rehouse the driver, I don't see how it could get much better within this housing. Tuning-wise, the KC06 is near perfection.

Just like those nice moments of contaminated water and pollution from their place as well. Don't forget, those elements add to the purity of their earphones, add some smoke, place a bit of water, and you get 

 

 

 

 

The sound of hope. :)

Likewise, and true that lol.

 

but there's only one lingering question remaining.

 

Where in the world did the ostry company reference in their IEM design? 

 

Weirdest shape I've seen, but it looks pretty good....

post #835 of 2535

The only problem I had with the Ostry was the bass, and it turns out mine was defective...

 

I'm really hyped now.

I don't usually listen to EDM, but I have my favorites. The KC06 positively shines with these:

I must say though sound aside you have to give credit for the build quality and materials used. In the hand they're quite well made, even down to the solid strain relief. Metal housings for this price arent very common and the actual design itself is well thought out / unique. The only problem might be the jack, it's quite small and could cause long term problems. It seems they've made the jack undersized on purpose, or to keep it out of the way. The metal housings themselves I really really admire the look of. So it's not just the sound, they've really done thier home work in most areas.

Damn, they're eerily similar to HP100. You know that phenomenon that whenever you immediately switch between headphone your brain will usually need few minutes to adjust the sound (especially for phone with different signature)? It doesn't really happen with KC06 and HP100.

This is what SkyBleu has said about this (via PM when I asked him some times ago, thanks man wink.gif) and I found every bit of this is true:
Quote:
- Separation is better in the HP100 (due to the wider soundstage and headphone space).
- Detail levels in the HP100 do not require as much effort to identify, whilst in the KC06, you have to listen hard for the fine detailing.
-Bass of the HP100 is more tighter, and accurate as opposed to the bass of the KC06 which has less texture and a touch boomy. Both are far from overly bassy, so you don't have to worry there.
- Treble extends much more on the HP100 due to the more powerful drivers, obviously.
- KC06 is quite engaging, and musical, whilst the HP100 is too, but the KC06 is more like a house party as opposed to the HP100, which is a party in a hall - more spacious and less full on.
- Mids on KC06 are pretty good for the IEM, and although it won't match the detail of the HP100, it is still pretty good - good texture and body.
- Both units have a nice vibe of the low frequency in the background to some songs which smoothens out the song in the mids and low end. Treble is not compromised, so I can assume you, you're not getting a veiled, dark sounding iem.

All in all, I guess you could say the KC06 is the younger, partying brother of the more mature and controlled HP100.

So if you want to hear how KC06 will sounds like supersized, try Soundmagic HP100. If you like how KC06 render female vocal you'll love how it sounds on HP100.

Very much so. Which is why I don't feel like this is hype, but much more appreciation of the work and detail they put into them.

Translation:

I learned that the first batch of products is indeed a part of the emergence of this problem is caused by leakage tuning cloth, and later also in their official blog has said this, the first consumer may have any dissatisfied application returned, I also reissued a second batch production siege, although this matter reflects the manufacturers in the consumer experience serious and responsible attitude, but I hope in the future to be more stringent to control production.

Later received headphones, low frequency obviously much better I feel, Oh, it is such a low frequency, after this aspect of the problem is solved, enough to make this headset Naiting greatly improved.
