OK, now I can resent having to spend $50 extra, and not buy them (maybe...)

Is the ckn70 still a good buy?

The H-200's that is-forgot how quickly things get posted on this thread

Well, I did mention the headphones I'd use on the ride LOL...loved the bike though, had taken it on a test ride, but this was the first real ride, about 2 hours, mostly on road but did take some off road trails for a bit (actually not allowed in the parks closest to me, so kept it short and real sweet). Got the Camber FSR 29 in black and red, (big birthday, treated/indulged myself), LOVE IT, have to get to some trails I'm allowed on soon. Oh yeah, to stay on thread topic, the PortaPros are still my go to for biking, bass is there, amazingly. You do lose some sound on downhills from all the wind noise, but being able to hear cars coming from behind me is definitely worth the trade off, and the park tends to be quiet enough other times. Really helps getting up the steep hills dt880smile.png

Looking to buy a mountain bike also, maybe that brand. Looking at one from them at around $1,300. Hmmm

Yeah, frown.gif.

The Green House "medicine basket" MBK is better, unless you specifically want to try the various new microdriver devices.

I'm a technology development and import agent living in Asia.

 

 

 

 

I have two IEM's to present to you...

 

 

 

1.  Green House GH-ERC-DMS

 

http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B0050DXRAM/

 

 

A pretty tricky name to remember, it's only the "DMS" part which signifies it's unique model, so let's call it the Green House damn-sexy.

 

 

If you think it looks similar to the once famous Fischer Audio DBA-02, you needn't be mistaken, since it virtually is the DBA-02, except...

 

// At a third of the price

// It looks much sexier in an all-black dress, with the green accent.

// It's Japan-only, released by a very well-known company in Japan.

 

 

There may be some minor differences in the cable type, impedance setting, or the filter used, I haven't checked in detail.

 

I can say the DBA-02 MKII sounds dull and lacklustre in comparison to the damn-sexy, the damn-sexy is closer to CK10 sound.

 

The first time I heard the DMS, I immediately recognized the signature TWFK sound, the precise instrument separation and well executed imaging not only on the X-axis, also on the Y, with cymbals, voices or echoes reaching well above your average IEM's X/Y field.

 

The TWFK is a fast firing and extended dual-driver without the phase or crossover issues afflicting most multi-driver setups, in essence it acts more like a single driver.

 

In turn it led to the success stories of the CK10, DBA-02, DBA-02 MKII, UE700 / UE700R, R-50, GR01, VC1000?, EXS X20, PS200, B2, NS800 and several more models.

 

Furthermore it is the cornerstone for many multi-driver setups as a dedicated highs driver, where it's trademark sweet and icy sound can lie.

 

Now I present you the black raven of TWFK's, the Japanese isolationist, the Green House "damn sexy" GH-ERC-DMS.

 

 

 

2.  Green House GH-ERC-MBK / -MBW

 

http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B0050DXR3O/

 

http://www.amazon.co.jp/GREEN-HOUSE-バランスド・アーマチュア型-カナルイヤホン-GH-ERC-MBW/dp/B0050DXQXK/

 

 

This model virtually sounds near-identical to the Etymotic Research ER-4B

 

http://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B000300Y9O/

 

The difference is it's priced at around $25 instead of $150, and it's Japan-only.

 

 

So now if you don't mind, let me christen this "MBK" model the market balance killer.

 

I know of many more 'secret' IEM's or earphones which hardly ever see the light of day, but these two I think are a nice start I hope?

 

 

////Theta

 

talk about hype.  I'm more than sure the DBA-02 mkI NOT MK2 is the same as whatever IEM you posted.

I have the CKN70s and I love em. If you're sensitive to highs then you will need a lot of burn in, but they smooth out eventually. These IEMs have made me lean toward a brighter sound.

It was hype, but if the DBA-02 MKI is exactly the same as you think, then hundreds of people have been ripped off. =)

 

I bought my Green House a.k.a. DBA-02 for less than $60.

If you say it sounds like Etymotic, then it's really no alternative to the CKN70.

Ah, sorry I was a bit drunk and fell asleep. Yeah, I've already compared some of the vsonics a few times. The Gr04 flagship is the closest to gr07 and the speed of its bass, while in comparison the gr06 like gr02BE is softer on the impact and a bit slower

Indeed, very rigid mind.

 

You should really try the giant anthems, a friend loves her fsr works epic, carbon everything and climbs very well, she would continually show up my old tomac revolver.

 

Until my anthem turned up with mudx tyres, i couldn't believe how it outclimbed and went downhill faster.

 

Can be twitchy/scary for the inexperienced, but it's one hell of a frame they built.

 

So back to phones, carbo basso's is it the dx200's that are the warmer ones?

 

I have my eye on these, can't wait to try the VSD1, always wanted to try vsonic phones just to see why people love them.
