just got these, going to give them some burn in time, but initial impressions are... eh... I find the FR really wonky. Like they're bright but veiled. It almost reminds me of the treble on a HD600, but taken to an extreme beyond all reasonable extremes. Huge 4k peak followed by an 8k hole, followed by a 12k peak that makes cymbals bright.
With parametric EQ, I enjoyed them quite a bit, but straight out of my iPhone (ie the whole purpose I bought them for) I don't know that I can deal. I played around with the silver and black, and couldn't decide which I liked better. I'm scared of the gold filter because the 4 and 11k peaks already were so much for me, I don't know if I can deal with more treble, but I'll try.
Also having a couple different versions of Comply tips waiting on me when I get home, so maybe that will help too. Going to give these every chance. I really like the build, the weight doesn't bother me at all, and I like the way they feel. Wish the cable was less sticky/kinky but I think that will be fine with time.
At this point though, I still prefer my $10 pair of innateck woody iems that nobody else in the world seems to have even ever heard of, lol.
Again, going to keep giving these a chance, but it seems like my search for IEMs continues. I'm in this position of not really liking IEMs (hate the inner ear being full feeling, even with CIEMS), so I can't justify spending more than $100-$200 for them, preferably less, but that also means I never really find anything I like.

also they are amazing with the T400 conform "sport" tips. The extra isolation tips are a bit too bassy with the innateck woodies (though it is fun) whereas with the sport tips I enjoy them with no EQ at all.

no, haven't tried them, unfortunately. I'm not that big into IEMs like I am with full size cans, so I have only tried a hand full of the alternatives.

I've got both kc06a and Nuforce 750m (regarding Skullbunny) MacaW beets both of them. Nuforce is totally bassed, Ostry are better, they got better more mids and hights than nuforce, but Macaw got both - deep low bass (if you got enough powerfull amp), great mids and hights and.. the most important - very wide stage with great plans separation. It's not as wide as open over ear headphones, but definitly better than most IEM's

I have to disagree. I purchased the KC06A from Azmazon after seeing them on Massdrop, sadly for their ear-guards to help the Macaws wire to stay over my ears and fell in love with their sound. I tried the ear-guards on my Macaws and was satisfied, but found the KC06A's sound to be far superior to the Macaws. They are currently my IEM's of choice.

Just now received the Macaws. Their sound is a bit different, the bass is definitely more felt in there, but the voice of the singers is being less clear. Not even sure how to explain it.
