“I'm not much of a audiophile nor a reviewer just a regular audio enthusiast.. Apologies & correct me if I'm wrong.. Absolutely "StUnNeD" by these gems thought of sharing my experience.. Firstly I'm from India & CKN - 50's are priced Rs.1600 roughly 24 USD. Few options at this price point were TDK EB-900 JVC FX101 SONY XB30 After searching for reviews narrowed on...” --bharathss
“They sound nice and have lot of bass.. the wire is cheap but did not break for now but for intensive use im sure it will.... The treble is killing my ear seriously i may have got a bad one or something but i listen loud and these get worse treble the louder you play them... sometime i want to throw them aways it hurt... I try to run them...” --bonami2
“ This is great for the price. Its sound reminds me of Stax headphones or electrostatic speakers, both of which I don't own, but have heard on a few occasions. It needs extensive(100+ hours?) breaking in to help tame the highs and bring out the bass. If you want a slightly warmer sound or are treble sensitive, then choose the Panasonic RP-HJE355 instead, although some may want...” --JK1
“ Comfort & Fit First thing to note, these earphones use balanced armature drivers rather than dynamic. Because of this getting a good seal is critical for the sound.

There is no midbass bloat I could hear so there is no veil in the mids. The guitars especially sound amazing on these...” --ozkan
JVC has released its cool and stylish wooden earphones HP-FX500 which delivers excellent sound quality and appropriately absorbs excessive vibration thanks to the use of a wood dome diaphragm manufactured by thinning a birch material into a dome shape.
“ These must have been designed with some singular purpose in mind. They did not sound right to me in terms of balance, dynamics and detail. Very bass heavy. A lot of technology but ergonomics and fit suffer imo. I like the attempt and the price of these and recommend for those who like to investigate the extremes of bass heavy sound. They might be just what you're looking for, Give 'em a try, ” --thelostMIDrange
“ Tight competitor of GR07, this IEM isn't a replacement for GR07, but rather, a complimentary IEM. How does it sound? Fun, thick, and musical. Not your best analytical sounding IEM, while it does bring out details nevertheless. To me, it's a great buy, because I don't need anymore accurate sounding phones, but rather something fun and colored to my personal preference....” --autumnholy
