$100-$150, with clean solid bass.. will be using for mostly trance and some hip hop music while working out at the gym.

Go for the Zero Audio DX210. While the bass on a CKS77X is much more robust and beefier. It has the AT microphonics from the cord which would get annoying if you move around much. I think for the gym the basso will be perfect for you.

 

Actually I think Wayne can chime in on his gym practices with his Bassos. How it work in the gym.?

Oh if you own a CKS1000. Are the S2 worth grabbing. ABSOLUTELY. It is at that level of sound for certain. Sure they don't have the bass end of the CKS1000 but man they are enjoyable.. It is not really a matter of which one is better. Both of them have a different take on the sound and that makes them different phones and not the same. One is a stupid high end musical phone. One is a true audiophile style phone.

 

It is my opinion but I think everyone should have at least one neutral style sounding phone.. At least one. For your sound edumacation..Even if your taste in sound is more bass driven or treble driven or mids driven. Something to neutrality that adapts to more genres which makes sense. Now obviously if your music collection consists of the latest EDM, electronica, Indian dance music.French Hip hop.  Than the CKS1000 does that better than just about any phone out there but if your music collection is deep with variety.. Neutrality is king here. The great thing is neutrality doesn't mean it is boring or treble happy. These S2s are just as immersive as the CKS1000.. On some tunes even more so. The S2 sounds more natural to my ears but the CKS1000 is more immersive because of how deep rich and wide the sound is.

 

I will do a proper A/B soon but for now. Both are extremely enjoyable phones. That joy you got from the CKS1000.. You don't want a down grade.. You want something that shows you something new. You want to double that joy.. Happy happy joy joy. That is what the S2 will do.. It is a phone worthy of anyone's collection just like the CKS1000 is.

I use them Bassos for the gym. Close to no micro phonics, very light, comfortable, and most of all great bass to isolate background noise. I wear them over the ear plus a clip to secure the cable.

Bought the Fidelio S2 from Amazon.jp :D
Comes to around $140 in total for me. Including Tenso fees etc.
Excited, very very excited :D
Might post a few impressions comparing them to the GR07 Bass Edition (which I adore) and Audiofly AF56 (which are pretty great too).
I also have the AD900x which are mindblowingly amazing too, might do some comparisons with them. Not much point in comparing full-size and IEM's though :\

Having my virgin listen with the ATH-CKS1000 right now and I'm very impressed by it's character.  Why isn't this the NUMBER 1 recommended IEM on head-fi?  This is better than the JH13 what a waste of money.

Still the No.1 in this price range in the prestigious VGP2013 Summer that's fresh out of Japan today!

It retained its No.1 seat from half a year ago biggrin.gif

Aren't the size and degree of protrusion an obstacle?

They're quite a bit smaller in real life than I expected from the pictures.  I have Ortofon E-Q7 at the post office as well btw.

Ortofons are a lovely piece of kit.

I'd be interested to know how the S2 compares to the Sony EX1000. Both have large open dynamic drivers, but EX1000 is much more expensive than the S2. If the S2 is even better than the EX1000 I'd gladly buy one right now.

post #10935 of 32865
Anyone interested in the S2 and avoiding Amazon-tenso, I got mine on eBay for total of $145 shipped FedEx, 3 day delivery from Korea to New York.
