Hi Man-ili,
I never tried TFZ series 5 myself.
However, if you are looking for thick mid with boosted bass, Ostry KC06a should be good for you. :)

Regards,
Creavasst

Hi Creavasst,
Thanks a lot for your reply. I've ordered Ostry KC06a.
Kind regards,
Man-ili

I've been listening to my KC06As a lot lately.  I think you made a great choice.

It's my pleasure seeing someone fall deeper into this audio abyss. :p
On side note, I do hope you'll enjoy KC06a.

Recieved mine's from Massdrop few days ago.
Very rich sounding, well controlled treble, bloated bass response that does not leak to much on the mid range.
Overall nice sounding, but far from natural for my classical taste.

I've read that in pair of high quality sound came low quality build, is this true? Any of you have this ones longer than year without problems?

I would say the contrary : quite low sound quality (the more you listen, the less they please, once you pass the seduction moment !) but good build quality and probably the most comfy IEM's around.

That is correct. Probably my favorite sound in an IEM that I've tried, but I've been through two pairs. First one lasted 4 months then the right one went out. Second pair lasted 2 months then right one went out.
Sound is so good that in situations where I can only use one earbud I still pull these out. Also so good that I'm probably gonna by another soon even if it just lasts for a few months. Best pair of disposable IEMs!

EDIT: Oh and the second time around I literally only used them while sitting at my desk, never when walking around or anything.

That is rather disheartening. I've just gotten mine for a fortnight or so, and have been using them a few times since then. Sure wish mine would last a bit...

It's really hard to predict how these will hold up over time for you because there are so many variables, like differences in build and how you use them. I've had mine since March, they're in perfect shape and I still love them. I've gone back and forth on their use though, with the Macaw GT100s.
 
I think these can blow a speaker because of their sensitivity. I don't know how many times my phone has been turned up and blast my ears with these. I've quickly learned to turn it down, but still after I hit play on the track; I can usually get it down before the song plays though.

These are on Massdrop again - I'm concerned with the poor build quality (as reported by owners on the drop) - and lack of removable cable. But sound quality . . . hmmmmmm - for $45 really tempting...
