Ehhh of course the CKN70 is more refined than the S500s but not by THAT much. It's an upgrade for sure but not a massive one. Plus the S500s are just too fun to mod and stuff. So yes i prefer the S500s over the crappy cable of these CKN70s. tongue.gif

I was looking around on the forum and found that most people prefer the S400. Would you agree with that?

Get the S400s if you love your mids, since the bass quality and quantity was a bit shy for me and the highs are not that well extended. I was kinda disappointed by the treble of the S400s initially but modding them/ the AKG pads helped to bring them more forward.

 

I like the treble and bass of the S500s much more. So i would say the S400s have a nice relaxing and non fatiguing sound while the S500s have a more aggressive, powerful and engaging sound siggy.

For the guys that are interested in the CKS99. It looks like Danny will get the CKS77X soon. I would wait and see what he says about the CKS77X. I think the CKS77X might be the better phone over the CKS99..Just a guess on my part but I like how AT does revisions and the CKS77X is the latest..

Ok, thanks Ds for the info. Will wait up for Danny's take on the CKS77X.

Hope it would be a big step up from the CKS90 which my wife has lay claims to. Pretty hard to pry them from her so that's why I'm looking our for another to replace it.

Ya I saw that post. Those sound like the real deal. I am gonna wait a bit for some more impressions to come in. I will eventually get a pair but right now I am pretty happy with the stuff I have. I have been too busy with school stuff to really be going all out on gears.

I am certain the new Solid bass earphones will do one up on the old CKS90. I own a pair of them myself. I gave them to my son after I got my CKS1000s. If you really want to treat yourself you need to save a bit and go for the CKS1000.. It is the earphone the CKS90 should have been. But I think the CKS77X are gonna be a good one.  Danny gets stuff so fast from Japan.. It will only be a few days.

Me and a few others are wondering the difference between CKS1000 and CKS99 in terms of SQ?

post #10524 of 32896
@Ds, I did started my consideration with the CKS1000 in mind.

Anyway, may I know what are the most significant improvement with the CKS1000 compared to the CKS90 since you actually own both of them.

Thanks again in advance, Ds.

+1 @fnkcow, will really like to know the differences btw the CKS1000 and CKS99.

The CKS90 was an experiement in air chamber tech. Instead of using a round air chamber which gives of a tremendous amount of depth and space in your tunes like the ones use in the CKS77 for example. It uses a smaller more narrow hammer like chamber and this has an effect on the sound. Notice this particular air chamber is no longer being utilized by AT? The CKS1000 uses a completely new design for their air chamber that give a much grander sound as well as advancement in balanced tuning that represents the new AT sound over the older CKS90. The CKS90 has a minor V shape sound to them and while width of music is plenty good it is the depth of the music that is limited vs even the CKS77.

 

The CKS1000 uses a new higher end more refined driver that not only picks off great detail but also utilizes the new dual air chamber. If guys want to hear what music spacing and layering is about. You just have to hear the CKS1000. Spacing, depth, stage, combined with a much better balanced tuning with a higher end driver and you get one of the best single dynamics money can buy imo.  The highs are somewhat blunted on the CKS90. The CKS1000 has very smooth extended highs.  Lushously deep mids and a very detailed and complete low end to compliment the sound. Refinement is excellent on the CKS1000.

 

I am gonna guess less refinement on the CKS99. Similar sound tuning as it uses the same dual chamber tech but the driver will be of a lesser quality. I am gonna guess those will have about 80-85% of the sound of the CKS1000. Could have more mid bass to please the younger set who is more likely to get the CKS99 over the CKS1000.

Thanks Ds for the helpful insights. Appreciate it.

Will just stay put and save up a little more for the time being and also maybe wait for some further thoughts from fellow members here with regards to the CKS99 and 77X.

I might be trippin' BUT.....

 

You know what i just realized!!! These Corecools with the vent filter is THE OPEN BACK VERSION OF THE FXZ200s!!!........

 

There is so much more air/ black space and instrument separation/soundstage to them BUT yet IT IS STILL CRAZY BASSY LIKE THE FXZ200!!!

 

Dat alberto dood, you have found your holy grail!!! LMAO.

 

 

You know what they remind me of as well??? Those Somic MH463s, but with better bass and treble. That was what those cheapo Somics lacked but it is all here in these corecools!!!

 

These are much more refined sounding when you use a filter with holes allowing some air in. So in essence they are semi-open with my mod. Without the filter, the mid bass is overwhelming and too boomy which ruins the overall bass quality/ sound. The filter not only tightens/ improves the overall bass quantity/ quality it also makes the mids/ highs more forward as the result of the better bass control.

I am torn between CKS1000 and WS99 as they are both so cheap on amazon japan. What's the main difference in their bass? Will the WS99 sound good from a Meridian Explorer?

post #10529 of 32896

I recieved my CKS77X today, and initial impressions are that these are leaps and bounds better than the old version. Bass is more defined, with better control, mids and treble are much clearer. Straight out of the box they sounded a bit muddy, but with a few hours burn-in they started to open up a bit. I feel like these are definitely gonna need a huge burn-in, but every time I give them a listen they are sounding nicer and nicer. I think they are the perfect sidegrade to the CKN70. They are equally good but excel in different genres. AT has definitely done it again.

post #10530 of 32896

So with the SHE9700s, is there any siblance/harshness? My main problem with the FX40s is the harsh highs, and this is why I wanted a new pair. By the way, does this seem like a good dealer?
