Well, I ordered a white CK-700 but never received it as well as the CK-1000 (wood) and I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how good they sound. They're warm, bass driven and actually sound quite good. There's a tiny bit of shrillness about the upper midrange but nothing that can't be mitigated with EQ or ignored outright. Well worth the $6 they're being sold for.
Really disappointed that my CK-700s have been lost in shipping or whatever (guess I should've sprung for the registered airmail) but I'll be contacting Focalprice about my money. It's a paltry sum but I can't just let them keep my money.
