I like the CKM99 WAY more than I did my HJE900s (even brighter treble!) and I even slightly prefer them to my MD Tributes (too much sub-bass!) I am in the process of comparing
them to newly acquired JVC FXT90 (dual dynamic) and it is a good showdown. The JVCs have a richer sound, but a bit muddier with less detail. Both are excellent for the price and have
very different presentations!
