Well I guess you could use forwarder service and buy from taobao, some seller still stock them (they put silver version on picture but some of them have option to opt for gold). Or just get KC06A instead. very_evil_smiley.gif

Yea.  I'm thinking just to wait unless they can offer some sort of guarantee.. or be willing to foot the bill if I get the wrong ones.  If they're as good as everyone is saying, then it'll be worth the wait.  The KC06A look gorgeous, but there's no way to know if they're as good or even better (see Havi Pro II).  Also don't know how much they'll cost. 

 

I'm currently *very* satisfied with my JVC HA-S680 headphones, but eventually this winter weather is going to go away and my ears are going to start getting sweaty.  I need me some IEMs!

Request a full refund from Shenzenaudio and purchase them from Penonaudio ;)

Here's their response.  Was bass the problem with the first batch of KC06?

The Silver is the latest and do not have the bass problem.
If there is some wrong with the quality or bass problem you can send it back.
Then choose to change a new one or want refund.
The Gold will be available at the end of this month.
Could you wait?
My manager also contact other angent about the Gold, but no answer yet.
Please let me know your choose.
Have a good time

Yes, there was a problem with the bass.

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.




I also read in this thread somewhere one of the main sellers already confirmed they do not have any of that batch.
Trying to locate that post through the hype force field proved unsuccessful.

All sellers were affected. Mine came from a main Taobao seller and were defective.

I'm only affirming the seller who confirmed they got affected on this thread. And there's way too little sample to say that ALL seller got affected, at least some of them probably stocked on new shipment by now.

Thanks for the confirmation guys.  I think I'll order them.  Color doesn't matter so much to me.

 

Someone had posted wide-bore tips.. anyone know where we can order those?

anyone know how to identify the first batch product without listening to it.

i mean does the packaging contains mfd date ? 

post #973 of 2535
^ You got a 6 digit code which you can input on ostry's site to ensure that you got a legit product from licensed seller. It probably will tell you if you got a bad batch too (not sure, I have gold version and the code didn't tell anything unusual).



Okay, it's either because of :
1) Brain Burn-in
2) Burn in
3) I listened to a lot more song since
4) Combination of the above
I feel this thing is even better than the first time I've heard it, I read some member here said that Ostry bass tuning is tastefully done and I couldn't agree more. It's not the best I've heard (TH600 take the cake for that) nor perfect but boy if it isn't oh so tasteful.

And no it's still not a basshead phone, people who regard 5dB increase across the whole bass spectrum as "neutral" should really look elsewhere.

i have placed a order from shenzhenaudio on 5th for a sliver version still i have not received it.

i did not know there was a problem with the first batch,i have now sent a mail to ostry see what they have to say.

post #975 of 2535
The code is inside the box which is sealed so you'll only get it when you got the phone.


And the high is not as recessed now, what the heeeck?
