Dat woodie flings don't last THAT long meng, just ask OP himself. smily_headphones1.gif



You could be right. The JVCs are girlfriend material, maybe not wifey though. Only time will tell.

After 1.5 hours of the KC06A, I was ready to get them out of my ears. After 3 days filled with 850 head time, I was still liking the more and more.

I'd consider keeping these birds, but only for EDM, dubstep, pop, and maybe J-rock. The bass thump and rumble is nice, and the sub-bass extension is impressive.

I probably come off sounding overly critical of these. They are still great, but I can't really see myself giving them enough head time to justify keeping them.

I do have my wife's old iPhone 4 hanging around here somewhere. I'll try and get to it after the 50 hours are complete.
These were initial impressions. Most of the time they remain similar. I'm thinking the C&C BH out2 will likely impact them in a significant way. We'll see.

give them mo' tyme to mentally burn-in as well as physically for sure, no rush. Stuff can change on ya' on a dime somethings so....

 

Not like these are $400 and up sets that you need to flip quick if they don't live up to their hype. Give them more tyme and ear time and most importantly give us mo' impressions along the way cuz being critical is GREAT!!!

 

Keep it up and see how they will grow or not grow on ya'. :beerchug:

Absolutely. I've had earphones surprise me after finding an optimal setup.

Right now my brain/ears are freaking on on how forward the high hat sounds. It's distracting. Mochill loves his Highs to be sharp and sizzzzle. I can see why he'd enjoy these. They are very present in the 2-7ish range. Yet they don't suffer from sibilance which is very nice. I tried them on some go-to sibilant tracks and these passed with flying colors. Maybe because the lack of upper extension?

Either way. I'll be giving them their due time and diligence before making my final decision on them.

Can you take a picture comparing the size of these to your Havi B3 Pro? I'm curious just how much bigger those housings are.

I have a hard time believing someone would say these are comparable to $300 IEMs and another would say they're a great deal at $80. One argument was something about synergy and sq preference.

 

If it really is "up to preference" then how can we justify spending $300+ on iems if we're just looking for a sound signature? Just eq the schiit, so easy. Sound signature should really not be one of the deciding factors unless you plan on recording (or if it's beats with their irreparable +20db mid bass boost).

 

Also, burn in is ridiculous, yes it makes the signature more "consistent", and it may permanently change the db level of certain frequencies, but it's not going to make it more clear.

 

Either these are comparable to $80 IEMs or they're comparable to $300 IEMs, they can't be both.

Was going to keep burning but curiosity got the best of me and I had to try the line-out to the C&C. Definitely pairs better than the headphone out.
The mid range took a step forward. Makes it a more balanced sound than before.

Mid detail was already solid but now more prominent.

Bass is still as punchy and rumbles like a motherf...😋😝. Bit heavy but very enjoyable.

I was going to do a comparison to the pistons but I don't think I'm going to even bother. These crush the pistons in every way possible.

Maybe these were just really tight out of the box and pair badly with the HF out on the X3. Interesting. Something to look forward to now.

But I also find iems like the UERM, JH13 and K3003 pretty special too and capable of things my beloved dynamics just don't do.

While FR is overwhelmingly important, eq can't fix resonance, ringing, decay/speed, distortion, tube length and diameter, driver mounting angle (dynamics), venting and inherent crappiness of cross over design. But hey, I'm a big proponent of simple but concise eq, so I'm willing to try.

Like I said synergy is also important as well as sound signature preference 😅😎

Faint hope the depth will stretch out...unfold after 200hourszzz

Lets wait...
