Interesting that you list the less sibilance as a Con.  I didn't like the CKN70 because they were too sibilant.

Correct me if I'm wrong.  But Amazon Japan doesn't ship earphones outside of Japan right?

 

We would have to use a forwarding service like Tenso right?

 

Ever since Tenso changed their rules about providing ID's with birthday and address I can't sign up.

 

I live outside of the US and my ID for my temporary home abroad, doesn't show my address or birthday.

 

Ughh pain in the ass.

Yes you have to use Tenso.

Any ID will do, as long as it has your name, date of birth and photo on it.

For proof of address you will have to submit another document, like a bank statement for example.

Yeah, the process is really easy. I sent them my details the other day there and I was accepted the day after.

For anyone who has the CKS1000: Are they a worthy upgrade to the CKN70's? If so, how much of an upgrade is it?

Sorry, that was a 5am morning brain mistake. I'll fix it. Thanks for noticing.

It'll be interesting to see the comparison on these:

  1. CKS1000
  2. CKS77x
  3. DX210

 

If the CKS77x is better than the Basso, I may have to pull the trigger on those and sell the DX210.

I just can't afford the CKS1000 at the moment angry_face.gif as I have other priorities in my wish list...

Same here mate. wink.gif

 

Btw, CKS1000 is better than just about anything else under £200. cool.gif

 

@waynes will surely confirm that.

There's no substitute for first-hand experience when making bold claims like that.

Ok then.

 

I should have said, many CLAIM that its the best sounding IEM under £200.

 

Gawd, you Germans are so clinical and precise. Jeez.rolleyes.gif

@Lifted is trying to get me in trouble I see lol!

 

£200 would be $320US, and there are probably more than a few contenders out there for that price. I certainly love my 1K's, and think that they might be as good or better than anything under $200US, and probably do contend with iems costing $200-$300US. Sadly though, my experience with >$100 iem's so far has been limited to the xba3's, gr07be's and 1k's. All I can safely say is that to my ears, the 1k's sound quite amazing smile.gif
