If  you are veering from massive bass to less massive bass (but with much more irritating cable), the yes, mh1c is a good choice. Personally though, I would highly recommend the zero audio dx210 basso's. As dsnuts said.. "but something like the Zero Audio DX210 would be a nice upgrade in sound"

But they are more than that.. they are stellar.

The zeros are a bit out of my price range though sadly (100$+)

The MH1Cs are not even the same earphones without an amp in my opinion. They don't sound terrible without one, but the sound with an amp is so far ahead it's almost as if they require one.

These have been burning in all day with the "OTHER" phone and I am actually listening to them for the first time..The other phone has been taking all my attention unfortunately. Lol. These are the CKS77X Solid bass Revision...You know one thing I have determined about these. No one does coloration quite like AT.. If you add roughly 9-dbs of added bass to a phone how you gonna balance that out?

 

The answer is simple. You add that much mids and controlled treble to go along with it.. These do have some similarities to the WS99 headphones in sound and technicalities..The mids are actually surprisingly forward this time around. More so than the mids on the CKS77 I have hooked up next to it..

 

The results..Music is very immersive. very expansive and deeeeep as it is wide.. The difference between cheapo bass phones and what AT does is that these guys know how important mids and highs are to the overall sound vs just having that big bass. Cheaper phones might have the stage for the bass but many don't touch the depth needed to pull it off right...I know I am no where near full burn in on these but I can tell where they are heading. They took the best parts of the older CKS77 and then added their new house tuning even more fullness, a better more ergonomic housing design and then added even more smoothness to the overall sound. These sound cohesive smooth and very much the musical phones the CKS77 was and thensome.

 

I remember listening to these why I enjoy taking the old CKS77 outdoors so much. The bass is insane..These have big bass and even a bigger sound. Just the perfect type of phone to take out in the streets to block out the world around you..Going back n forth from the CKS77 to the CKS77X. Guys that love their mids up front and center are gonna love the very full and immersive nature of this sound..Bass levels of these phones are very similar to the CKS77 but the mids are more forward.. Treble has a touch more sparkle and extension but it is the forward mids that is the real difference in the two. An unreal feat considering how brawny the bass is on these phones.

 

It seems to me every year AT improves upon what they did previously and these are no exception. As massive as the scope of music was on the old CKS77. These improve upon all aspects of the sound on the CKS77X..How close are these to the CKS1000? Not close. The CKS1000 is definitely a higher end sound over these but at the same time. These are absolutely enjoyable for guys that love their music in the immersion side of the spectrum.. An absolute blast to listen to..

$115 to be exact..Not too expensive. But the sound..Soon very soon. I have been listening to them all day just to get a good idea of the sound. I am gonna let them cook overnight and gather my thoughts on them. It is a first for the discovery thread. These phones sound nothing like $115.. They sound like $200-$250 phones in sound easily.

 

Absolutely love the sound...No it ain't an AT or a JVC. Will reveal very soon. Lets just say I was so impressed by these I had to pick up the fullsized headphone version of these. Lol. Will do a report on those too. All in due time.

Where on earth did you find them for that much?

Buy from Amazon Japan, you will get then for almost half that.

tsk tsk tsk! I hope they don't sound better than the Bassos... but at $115, one should just save a bit more and get the CKS1000.
