You won't be disappointed. It's a fantastic headphone!

 

 

That´s what I keep hearing, I need to check it out for myself. I did some research looking for some HP with great bass, nice sound, great looks and in a way quite uncomplicated. I think these could be the ones

Also S680 is on ear for most people - a very comfortable one, but still an on ear.


Seriously...

 

They are both on-ears from close competing Japanese makers, have the same driver size, similar overall size, and price bracket etc. What they are named is far down the list as far as Head-fier's are concerned or anyone who is in the "know". Maybe a cheap trick by AT  to confuse/lure the "sheep" between the models but regardless of name it is an apples to apples comparison and the phones are very similar in many facets.

- Me thinking the Pistons doesn't best the CKN70 doesn't mean the Pistons aren't very good and aren't worth to sit in that same category.

 

- And it's about sound signatures you like anyway, so you may not agree with me (which is fine with me). I still read a few reviews by head-fiers I generally respect who say the Cardas suck and that the EX-1000 is better sounding than the H3. I don't agree with those opinions at all, but I understand that we like what we like. 


To be fair the CKN can aim itself wrong and suffer from some occlusion effect because of those unnecessary loops. This does lower the performance for some people. I think I heard the CKN at it's best and from reports of the Pistons(that I haven't heard), it seems that the two are on a similar level of sound and that the cable, price, fit etc.may be where there real noteworthy differences are.

I don't know about gaming specifically, but they are awesome for music. That was an insane deal.

yeah, i mean, the reviews i've read for music listening purposes don't seem as superb as what i read they were for gaming but i'm sure i would have enjoyed them. the only pair of cans i own is the sennheisers and i only use them for gaming with my astro mixamp. but it would've been nice to have a new pair of cans to try out.

Good though if you have neck problems and need to stabilize your head. ;)

i have the piston 2.0 and Havi should arrive soon.  will burn in and compare for you discovery adventurers.

and a new discovery:

New Official Zero Audio single balance armature stereo headphone ZH-BX510-CS

Single armature version of the DOPPIOS.  Nobody we know has heard these yet.  DSnuts predicts they may have more bass and a more musical tuning than the flat reference Doppios.

I have ordered them and they should be here at the end of this week or middle of next week thanks to e bay's  ace of bicycles2004 seller expedited delivery included.  same technology breaktrhoughs

as the doppios but single nano balanced armature.  Cant wait to give em a good burn and listen and report back to the front.

About CKN70.

yes, in many songs treble is too harsh, but in other half songs which are darker they sound realy good. I found them bit better in SQ than TF10, XBA-4, IE8 and on par with CKS1000 and IM50. Only IEM that beats CKN70 is, of course, CK100Pro.

Another big letdown about CKN70 is cable. For $60-65 they are bargain, but i would choose IM50 any day, because of more gentle treble and slightly lower price.

I've got both for a couple of weeks now and actually posted a small comparison between the Gratitude's, Piston's and the B3's in this thread.

Should just be a couple of hundred pages back wink.gif

Thread Starter 

I have around 100 hours of burn in on the Doppios now and all I can say is..

 

These deserve some serious attention for guys that are looking for a higher quality sound from your in ears.. I remember writing about the bass on these. The bass is absolutely fantastic on these in ears. These are not a bass first iem but they can shockingly represent any type of bass on all music with no need for boosting. Guys that love their bass are not gonna reach out for the Doppios but when accuracy and speed is involved in your music. These are exemplary. A full bass note has showed up for the show and is now very much in line with the rest of the sound..This clarity and imagery from these are simply on a level you guys would not believe. The sound in a word is gorgeous..You can make out so much from your music effortlessly on these but beyond that I think it is the sense of space for the overall sound that has me loving these in ears every time I hear them..You want that out of your head imagery..These are it..You want a ruler flat response from the treble to the sub bass without music sounding thin or unnatural. These are it. You want detail so fine that you can pin point at what part of the high hat or bell the musician hit them with? These are it..

 

These have shot up to my top 5 list for me with ease..Sure they are a bit spendy but worth every penny. Keep checking amazon as both Danny and Ericp got them for $130 or so sold on Amazon Japan.

 

@DrBlue. Look forward to your take on the Singolos. It will not surprise me one bit if those sound world class.

anybody interested in pistons, do not buy it from inshoes on Ebay.

they are fake. pure fake. even though it has no r/l signs, and the line on right phone, they are pure fake.

so crappy sound, it is not even funny.

and the headphones do not even function right, sound cuts in and out, you hear from one side then the other etc.

 

do not buy from inshoes seller on Ebay!

 

the item was shipped from yau tong housing in hong kong. if you guys know what these housing units are you will know these can be nothing but fakes. if you do not know, well search them :)

 

i guess i will buy from the company site, and wait for 30-40 days.

Conclusion: if you want to be safe use an authorised dealer.
