"Kc06a-sure you could have got away with turning on the bass boost on your kc06 and got the same effect, but nooooooo my friend, you had to buy a whole new pair that's more expensive than the first!"

Nope. They are different beasts that excel in different areas.

b3 is a neutral beast that focuses on microdetails IMO

What kind of beast is this kc06a?

I have yet to see a comparison between a tape modded kc06 and the Kc06a... im thinking they would not be the same

post #489 of 673

I'm a bit curious about it and got both pairs, I'll give the tape mod a shot and see how it compares.

post #490 of 673

A/b test for like an hour, tape I used on the kc06 didn't like to stay on so I pretty much took it all off and I prefer the stock sound of the kc06. Comparatively the differences were like so

 

Sub bass: kc06a

Mid bass: kc06a

Mids: kc06

Treble: kc06

 

As a personal preference I like my sound signature a bit bright and clear and the original kc06 sounds fantastic. The kc06a stock had more bass impact and bass was nice and controlled, tape modded kc06 did get a nice bass boost but sounded tad slower and darker. Bass on the modded kc06 sounded bit bloated in comparison to the kc06a. The bass being as powerful as it is on the kc06a bleeds a tad into the mids and treble was a touch hotter than the modded kc06.

 

Both sound great but I honestly listen to different music on each one stock and use different tips on them regularly but I stuck to the same ones when listening. Ran my dragonfly dac v1.0 to an cable splitter to a/b both without having to keep to keep plugging and uplugging. Also ran the cable splitter with my fiio x5 to how that sound with both for this a/b. Used the medium soft stock silicon ostry tips. (Usually use small heir tips on the kc06)

As long as you get a legit pair its a really good deal for the price being offered,if you ask me....but make sure your savings of $25 (to penon's) is really worth for future in-warrany claims,replacements after expired warranty etc besides its legitness,imo.

Interesting. Did you pinprick a hole in the tape, and if so did that make a difference versus the full tape mod? I have a feeling it might make a difference since I don't hear the bass as being a bit bloated. Then again, I don't have the kc06a's to compare against. Either way, thanks for the comparisons!
