I own a pair of the CKS70 still and while my wife uses them vs myself still find their novelty bass fun but do think they have overall sound issues but at $50 they would be fun to have around. If they are going to be your only IEM unless you truly live only for bass I do think you will get tired of their sound though.
Finally be very carefull about any seller who sells these outside of retail boxes and stuff as they are often as not counterfeits. Now in the case of the CKS70 since AT has discontinued them you may be seeing some factory over runs that are being sold underground by the factory to recover losses but in either case just be carefull.
Thanks for the reply,
Well i'm not an expert, i don't really understand this things. What i want from earphones is to have nice clear sound, clear treble, sound not to be noisy, nice details in music, and most, bass, i like to feel it in almost all songs, i first have the Nokia 3500 classic, i listened with the earphones that comes with the phone... and woooooow, a tons of bass, strong, punchy and permanent, there was very nice bass in 95% of songs i've listened. The bass was blowing and it was very punchy and strong on songs like "Fatal Tragedy" from Dream Theater, "Cigaro" from SOAD, "Holy Diver" from Killswitch Engage, "Eagleheart", "Hunting High And Low" from Stratovarius, "Hearts on Fire" from Hammerfall "Enjoy The Silence" from Depeche Mode, "Sounds Like a Melody" from Alphaville, "Drive", from Cars, "Call Me" from Go West, "Sadeness" from Enigma, "Automatic" from The Pointer Sisters, "if i only knew" from Tom Jones, on Bob Marley's songs, and of course some elecrtonic music, techno, trance...i get a nice punchy and permanent bass even on songs like "Tragedy" from the Bee Gees, "Easy Lover" from Phil Collins, "True" from Spandau Ballet, "Still got the Blues" from Gary Moore, "Your Love" from The Outfield "Dancing in the Dark" from Bruce Springsteen, and i get some good bass even on songs like Del Shannon's "Runaway", "Please Please Me" from The Beatles, "Forever Young" from Alphaville, "The Boxer" and "The Sounds Of Silence" from Simon and Garfunkel, "Heroes", John Lennon's "Imanige", "You to Me Are Everything" from The Real Thing, "Kung Fu Fighting" from Carl Douglas....
Unfortunately the earphones got broken, and the phone accidentally fell into water. From then i bought the Sony Ericsson C510, but the earphones that comes with the phone was really bad, i bought the Sony's MDR-ED12LP Heavy Bass, but the bass was very low, and the treble and detalis in music was not good. I sold the C510 and get the Nokia N82 that im using it now, the sony earphones giver little better bass with the n82, but way lower than i expect. Same with CX300II, the bass is the same as on Sony earphones, but the details, and clarity are much better than MDR-ED12LP.
With every earphones i use equalizer and usually the first bar (for bass) and last (for clarity, treble) i got always up on maximum.
So which one will respond better to EQ, i won a JVC Victor HP-FX500 on ebay, and they will cost me 37$, i look the feedback of other buyers of these earphones and they all have positive comments on it, and other thing that i noticed is that all of them get the earphones for 35-40$. Here are the comments from buyers.....
