I actually feel pretty stupid now for ordering the kpe's. My main reason for an iem is for good soundstage and male vocals in particular. From the research I gathered more people then not have said the kanas pros's male vocals suffer from less body but this time I am banking on sealing the front vents to cure that problem. There's literally no other iems for full, clear male vocals with powerful and and good expression in the sub 200 price range. I've tried asking everywhere and been through many iems recently. Let's just hope the front vent mod is effective just as it was with the t2's. Anyways will be looking forward to your comparsion once they have arrived.
