Pros: Awesome performance for the price!

Cons: Should have bought more!

 

 

Recommended by Dsnuts, was told that it will be an upgrade from the TT Isarus.

 

Much more refined and beautiful bass!

 

Mid's and High's are complimented with a delicious refined low end.

 

Soundstage is full and wide with great detail and clarity. Very fluid, very listenable and non fatiguing!

 

Comfortable and stays securely in your ear. Changed the tips to comply T-400's which improved the isolation and making the sound even more alive.

 

These will be my daily's for a very long time and it will be sad when they are finally replaced but my next IEM's have big shoes to fill!

Pros: Smooth overall sound, large soundstage

Cons: Isolation good not great

I own variety of more expensive IEM however these have to be my favorite. This is mostly due to the huge sound stage which sounds like a full size over the ear headphone.

 

The highs are crisp clean with good detail and without sibilance.

The mids although slightly recessed still have good presence. The vocals on a good recording will float just above the instruments.

The base is rich and full and will go very low without a lot of bloating. The base may not be big enough to satisfy a base head, however and analytical listen would consider it big. I listen to rock which I would consider the amount just right.

 

Comparing these to the HA-FXT90 I would say they are pretty close in signature but not the same.

The CKM500 having the edge as they have slightly less treble extension but not a lot. Its just enough to keep it from being strident as the FX90 can sometimes be on certain recordings.
