I bought the C300's at the $89 price and found them ok and possibly worth that price. The bass is huge but controlled quite well. The Gratitudes bass is miles ahead though. Vocals aren't too recessed with that big bass On the C300's. Treble is a bit grainy but not sibilant. Housing is monstrous but comfortable. Cable is top notch and overall build is really good. I didn't mind the sound, especially with hip hop. There's good amount of mid-bass there. I say if you want a more aggressive big bold sound, then shoot for the C300's. Competes well with many in that price range. If you like a sweeter sound that still gives you good amount of treble, then Gratitudes. Not sure if either is an upgrade to the CKN70's though.
