Wasn't feeling those FXZ200s that much, due to that slow and overly powerful at times over bloated bass/ sub bass, and they had my ears ringing sometimes due to all that power, but after beating the crap outta' them for these past 2 weeks, the bass has toned wayyy down allowing the rest of the sonic spectrum to shine. They are pretty amazing sounding now, and as ghost told me, 500hrs of burn in might just be the beginning for these FXZ200s due to the crazy stiff materials used. So I can't imagine how much beating it takes for these new SZ2Ks to fully shine and get their true sound. But you'll find out soon enough ericp.

Newer JBL would be preferred. Do you know any headphones
/IEMs that have a similar sound signature to JBL?

Just received my CKS1000 today and only been burning a couple hours. They were a bit veiled/congested at first but now the bass is already tightening up and the soundstage seems to be getting bigger. Separation in the mids and highs are also becoming better. I've never owned such a high end pair of IEMs but OMG are these really IEMs?!! I didn't know IEMs could sound like this, mind blown already... I wonder what it's gonna sound like at 200 hours o_o

Need some new IEMs since I sold the CKN70s and my FX101s are starting to die. Any suggestions? Would've kept the CKN70s if it wasn't for the J-cord :(

why didnt you just re-cabled them?

post #8890 of 26840

I don't know how and don't know anyone near me that does. If I could have / buy a Y-cord version of the CKN70s, I'd do that in a heartbeat. Anyone wanna buy a new pair of CKN70s in silver, recable them and sell me them :D

I had to pass along this deal: Sansa Clip Zip for $20:

Awesome little player. It can be rockboxed so that you get a much more comprehensive EQ (ie parametric EQ) plus the ability to play FLAC format files. Even if/when I get a more expensive player, I will always have the Clip Zip as well (especially for when kayaking!).

I just read this, where roma101 (very experienced) says the following:

Hey joker, I was wondering if you heard the new RHA SA950i. It's a small stylish, inexpensive portable headphone, about $60. I just got a pair and find them quite great for the price. Isolation is good maybe a notch or two lower than an HD25, comfort is great, and it sounds reasonably detailed and very musical for a budget can. Hope you get to review these.

 

Here's an image:

 

Somewhat cool looking portable headphones. Some interesting reviews at amazon.com.

 

Has anyone here tried them?

joker's all about the iem these days. he hasn't updated the portable cans thread since Dec I think.

I think an inventory clear out is going to be needed and done soon.  Have way too many random headphones.  Free MH1's if you want to dig them out of my garbage can....2 sets supposedly not fake but eh.

 

Simply going to be top tier stuff from now on.

even if I didn't charge you for the work it wouldn't be worth it. looking at 140 for intl shipping unless you want it to take forever.
