Well dweaver, my CKS70s came into day, the 300-hour used ones, and I have to say, you are right on the money. Wow, what a nice soundstage, bass, depth of sound, and most of all, not a hint of muddiness or harshness. Details are there too. Hotel California (Hell freezes Over CD) never sounded so good. It's the first track I play with new phones.
I am impressed with these puppies, and for $40, amazing (thanks John in NYC). I won'b bother with a long review or anything (all caught up in the TF10 frenzy, as mine should be here any time now), but I can echo dweaver's initial review. I really am impressed by these phones, and they are also fairly large and built like a tank, but also very comfy.
They do not, much to my chagrin, provide a good match with the Amp3s, but no matter, I have the Ksc35s, the Grados and the S4s for those DAPs. With the Sony X and the Zune, awesome.
Thanks for that review.
