Yea I think you did get ripped off if you paid that MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oh and @sfwalcer,
I did get those CKM500s, and they were great at first!
Fitting Issues did it for me, I just couldn't bare it.
That and the fact that, they weren't for me. I mean sound is all about preference, I'm not trying to put down the IEM's its just, well they weren't something I would see myself listening to as much as I had listened to my FX101's,
Now those things I cherished and used so much. Leading to them breaking.
I ended up selling them to one of my audiophile friends, who was more than happy to take it off my hands.
All in all, I don't really regret it, but at least I had the experience,
This is ages ago now, so I can't quite remember the sound.
DOOD i would have traded both of my FX101s for your CKM500s. LoL Yeah the big earbud-like housing on them is what stopped me from buying them. Hurts me soul damn much damn earbuds. Thats why all the new ATH BASS cannons are of little interest to me, even though they might be amazing. BUT thank god I can't afford them anyways. haha
Thats too bad that the soung signature of the ATH 500s weren't your cup of tea, you seems to be more of a bass head type, I can dig it. I think you're gonna love your new R1s esp. from the impressions I have read of them so far, and the FAD IIIs as well, but I think the sony 90ex is what you will go nuts over. Hope you like your incoming Sony MH1C's, if not I will gladly trade my FX101s for yours. heeeeee
