The CKN70's has more bass. However the S2's are far from bass light and the bass quality is very good.

I find the two to be very different. The CKN70's are much more raw and in your face while the S2's are more refined and balanced.

I enjoy both very much.

Thanks. Do you prefer one over the other though?

Hoping my new Fidelio S2's will blow me away in a similar fashion ;)

 

Sweet! Yes, I still love my ad900x's. Who needs the stinkin' Fidelio X1's when you got the ad900x? biggrin.gif

Well, I do think that the S2 has a better sq in total and they are probably more "correct" but I still prefer the CKN70's for workout an some kind of music. It also isolates better.

If I had to pick one it would be the S2 but since I found them to be great complement to each other I see no reason to choose smily_headphones1.gif

LOL - that got coffee spurting out of my nose!

 

Hey Rick! Good to see you back! Sf got you hooked up with the latest - thanks Sf!

 

A standout imo are the Zero Audio Bassos. For $65 shipped, they are outstanding.

 

The ATH CKS1000's are amazing iems that you should look into:

http://www.head-fi.org/t/641571/the-new-ath-cks1000

 

And add the JVC HA-SZ1000/2000's to your list of S500 upgrade headphones (although the jury is still out):

http://www.head-fi.org/t/661129/jvc-ha-sz2000-1000-appreciation-thread

 

The WS99's have been my ultimate S500 upgrades for a while, but it depends on what you're after.

 

And yes, awesome looking home system rig you got going there!

Yup, the Philips Fidelio S2.




Impressions?

It's still too early to say. On first listen, the treble is unbearably hot and spitty. The mids is decently clear but has some annoying peaks, only the bass is good with nice impact and rumble. But it just doesn't have the same level of immersion I felt with the CKS1000. Overall I can't say I'm impressed with the sound at all.

Push it in harder and then suddenly shockingly amazing.

The CKS1000's are bassier than I remember but still blows away the CKS77X in every aspect.

Are the 1k's in the house? If so, awesome!

 

Remember that dsnuts thought they sounded a bit wonky until 150 hours of burn in.

 

And different tips make a big difference to the bass level of the 1k's. I personally like the Vsonic double flange tips (ie from the VSD1) on the 1k's.

Just got them in.  The black stealth version looks awesome.  I'm using Auveo's but I'll let them burn for the rest of the week.  Still sounds really nice.

There is hardly any information about the Audio Technica ATH CKS99's on Headfi. There is someone on ebay selling supposedly manufacture refurbished ones for £32. They came in a plastic bag with 3 sizes of silicon tips and a winder.

 

Mine have had around 30 hours burn in, and they are the best phones I own. They go low, they  are engaging, musical and detailed. They are special with vocals, and have a natural, realistic presentation. I was skeptical of them being genuine - if they are fake they are an amazing fake!

 

Someone who knows what they are talking about should get a set to compare to the CKS1000 and CKS77x - just to further human knowledgewink.gif

Cant find them. Could you give the link?
post #11039 of 32858

That's a good price on the cks99... I can't find refurb cks99 for some reason.

 

 

speaking of which, anyone got any new sub $30 discoveries lately?

Here they are:

I'm kinda skeptical about them to be honest, I think shipping them out of Australia would be risky.
