AK 240 or translucent ref 1... Decision decision
So I just got ostries new creation call the kc06A, the cooler looking very as stated by the website . The the sound is more tuned to be natural and organic and more open...an oh boy does it sound oh so delicious .
the most improvements is the bass which the first variant has some very tight speedy bass response and really nice textures to them, second improvements is the midrange being slightly a bit more full then the sibling which in turn make this on of the best vocals in an iem so far( I love a great midrange ), the treble remains the same. Beautiful sparkly fast making the whole sound complete and excellent .
when more people come to realize the you don't honestly need to spend over a $100+ to get top tier sound and I'm so pissed off because two days earlier I got the dunu dn2k( best midreange) and the ocharaku flat (best treble imho) and the funniest part is the this iem cost me $65 , same a the kc06 gold but the sound is the combination of both the dunu and ocharaku flat in one creating a iem the will blow the audio industry and cause a revolution soon enough. So will its brother the kc06 gold ...im a really pissed customer,, but a happy person as well that I have discovered a gem that really show where all the money goes to tuning and build , not some schiitty advertising cough cough *** (beats by schiit) instead this little company brought us a game changer which will be in the hall of fame soon enough and me as a consumer and an audiophile will definitely support the till the end and will buy whatever the releases in the future .
Got my KC06A last week and been using them for more than 100 hours already. Without any hesitation, I say yes they are better sounding overall than DN1K. IMHO the only area that DN1K were not beaten by KC06A is in 3D imaging, soundstage and treble quantity. Everything else is taken by KC06A. Although the Dunus are slightly better in clarity but thinner in mids presentation. I prefer the thicker and fuller mids of the Ostrys.
They blew the GR07 BEs out of the water. IMO, they are an upgrade if you're coming from the BEs. They have better bass response, texture, more rumble and can go deeper. BEs mids sound veiled compared to the Ostrys. The BEs have more treble quantity and well extended but prone to sibilance while I can not detect any sibilance to the Ostrys, they also have good treble extension. If KC06 made the BEs sound boring to me, the KC06A made them lifeless in comparison. Of course, YMMV.
