I read your comment about how you feel the FXZ200s was lacking a bit on the sparkle end..

 

CKS1000s have that and then the mids have more substance because the bass end is tighter as well as a wider and deeper stage..I am completely sold on air chamber tech .. I wish I had more time to write stuff for the threads and keep up with all of them but I am limited because of study time.. I am studying disease stuff.. Interesting to say the least.

 

@ Lifted. You talkin bout these?

Ya there is science behind these air chambers. It does stuff to sound.. Gives separation, depth and stage like nothing I have heard..Gives openness believe it or not.

 

Dual air chambers and dual resistors.. 4 chambers that all have an effect on the sound. You have any idea what these do for TRANCE???????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You've got me so hyped!!!! I have 2 more questions for you D's: do they come with a case? Also I struggle getting the FXZ200s tips to seal in my right ear. Is it possible I'll have the same problem with these? If they are anything like the CKN70s tips then I'll be fine, those are my favorite tips of all time.

Great comparisons there! Very informative! biggrin.gif

 

ATH-CKS1000 is very good unamped. Question is, how much better would it be amped with something like C&C BH?

Cleaner sound, deeper and wider soundstage, even more bass boost if need be..?

 

I like to have my rig as portable as possible, my source is a Samsung Note and I prefer to remain light and carry less stuff when i go about

Would like to keep my mobile phone as my music player even though its not really a great source and not keen on adding a DAC either

 

Hence is it still worthwhile to amp the ATH-CKS1000 with C&C BH?

No need really. The 1k's are very easy to drive. Just use noozxoide on your note and you are very good to go!

That's what I am using right now! L3000.gif Plus the cheapo Fiio E5 for volume boost as the Samsung Note really has crappy volume

 

Glad to know! Cheers beerchug.gif

Imo, the AD900X pairs very very nicely with the E12, and not quite so well with the C&C BH. I listen to the AD900X's exclusively with the E12 (off of my ELE DAC, or when watching TV off of my receiver). 

 

The WS99's pairs very nicely with the E12 (narrows the stage just a bit, but no biggie), and pairs very very nicely with the C&C BH (makes them slightly brighter, and opens the stage slightly). I listen to the WS99's with both, but lean towards the C&C BH most often.

 

The BH wins though for it's 80 hour battery life, and it's portablility (it is much smaller). Also, the BH pairs really nicely with my clip zip, and off of the clip zip + BH combo, my other iems also sound really great.

 

I typically keep my E12 on my desk, and my BH with my clip zip. If I had to choose one, it would be the BH. But, I would be quite sad not having the E12 for the AD900X!

 

Thanks for the response wayne! It sounds to me like the E12 would be a better solution for both the WS99 and AD900X. Portability and battery life don't matter that much to me since I'll be only using them at home. The more open soundstage of the C&C BH is very tempting though... I'm a total sucker for soundstage lol. Do you have any other recommendations for DACs beside the ELE? I'm willing to spend closer to $100 on a more expensive DAC if it can give me a better sound. If Dsnuts or anyone else could chime in, I'm very open to suggestions!

I have LG Nexus 4.  Any tips on what to turn on/off and at what level?

I've got a Nexus 4 as well.

The best thing to do is to stick on one of your favourite tunes and just play about with the settings until you find your preferred signature.

Something tells me it will end up being CKS1000 coz of the dual chamber awesomeness.

Yeah, I'm saving up for a higher-end IEM too. Though I've already narrowed it down to the new Westone Adventure Series, Audéo PFE 122, or the CKS1000.

Pretty happy with my VSD1 (Maybe I'll pick up the VSD1S for test), but I think my next pair of headphones is going to be a pair of over-ear and than the saving will commence.

Yeah, which is probably why I'll be going with the PFE 122. They've been getting some decent reviews.
