Forget about that you need to hunt down your brother and take back those 385s so i get to audition them against my corecools. LoL

He's all the way in California right now, than Seattle, than Washington, than he is going over to Canada for a month. I won't have those things back for at least the next six months and I am not even expecting to get them back than. Did you try emailing them like I suggested?

I actually decided that the 385s weren't on the same level as what you were describing the Corecools as. I would put them at $80 range, no higher. They have great (read:amazing) 3D imagining and the bass was killer, but the mids remained recessed a bit and the highs mellowed out quite the last time I listened to them. So they sounded balanced but mellow if that makes any sense. Worth the $30 bucks, yes, but definitely not the warmth you described with the V2s. They had more of a dryer sound to them but I would have loved to test your vent modification on them.

I only make this comparison now that I have my VSD1 which are quite balanced with a small bass hump. If you want something to audition I would suggest you grab the VSD1.

They have the exact same tips but the ones I use on my CKS1000 are Senheisser double flange tips..They fit really nice and comfy for big dynamics.

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!

Ya so it looks like these guys made these even smaller than they were before and selling them cheaper too. Try one of these. http://www.ebay.com/itm/HiFimeDIY-Sabre-Tiny-USB-DAC-Digital-to-Audio-Converter-ES9023-PCM2706-/130902323468?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1e7a62f10c

These are a step above the Ele in sound. Don't let the small form factor fool you. In fact for what these cost even for guys that own the Ele. You guys should try these out for a more refined sound. Sabre Dacs are all the rage.

Likewise. I love my CKN70's and wouldn't give them away but I want even more audio goodness! tongue.gif

I had 3 iem's in mind to choose from: AT CKS1000, JVC FXZ200 and the VSonic GR07 BE's. Dsnuts' recent impression there has just made up my mind for me tbh so the CKS1000 will be my next (hopefully soon) purchase smile.gif

I would have more peace of mind ordering it unopened with retail packaging from this guy for $8 more. (EDIT: Read next post) Or if you are rich and feeling very adventurous, I found it for $516.37 + $13.75 shipping here.

 

Just bought these. So excited to see how these 500 dollar iems are going to sound like!!

Hey some good news regarding the CKS77X.. This is a loosely google translated review of the CKS77X on amazon japan.

 

This review is from: audio-technica SOLID BASS Inner Ear Headphones Black Red ATH-CKS77X BRD (Electronics)
I have heard in various ways than mass retailers.
It purchased at the thought of the entire balance is better than CKS99.
I thought since the advent monster, rather than commenting the fidelity of sound, manufacturers like such gave, and, It looks became the age to enjoy the flavor to the sound.
Some people say that probably because price is intermediate, sound field, such as not determined, but I feel that it is quite clear.
Perhaps because bass sounds, I feel widely.

 

I think I might have to get me a pair. Look at these sexies.

$47US on amazon japan + $20 = $67. Same price as the Basso's. The 77's might be a diamond in the rough as well!

Ok peps i think i must be on some really good trip or these corecools are having me trippin' B@LLS.  I have never heard anything so crazy from any iem maybe even headphone before. This is my finalized filter mod on them and they will be shipped out to Danny on Monday to get his impressions. I am completely floored by some of the albums i am hearing with these. Esp. albums that require A LOT of soundstage/ instrument separation and bass all at once in order to sound eargasmic. These damn buggers got it.  blink.gif Hope it's just my noob @ss trippin' cuz even the gr07 BE nor the FXZ200s has EVER made my music sound like this before.

I have the JVC HA-S500 w/WS55 pads and Monoprice 8323 and haven't really tried any other on-ear or over-ear headphones.  Today, I was at Best Buy Mobile today and decided to try their headphones.

 

I didn't have my headphones with me, but I was surprised that I liked the S500s more than all of them except for maybe the Skullcandy Aviators, which are 3x the price!

 

I only spent a few minutes on each with my LG Nexus 4, but I would probably rank them in this order.  Some were too close to call.

 

Skullcandy Aviator S6AVFM-289

Monster DNA On-Ear

Beats On Solo HD

Sony MDRX10

UE 4000

Beats Studio Over Ear (worst by far)

 

I would say the JVC-S500 is either better than all or 2nd to the Aviators.  I think the Monoprice would even sound better than some of these.  Are my ears messed up?

 

I'll have to bring the S500 with me next time to compare them again.

What's the difference between the SHE9700 and SHE9750?
