Keep those CKS99 impressions coming.  I don't remember anything written about them.  I'm wishing I bought those instead of the 77X's but I think the 1K's will remedy that.

Besides the treble everything was exactly how i heard them.

 

Again great stuff meng.beerchug.gif

Well these have average isolation, meaning that with them on and the music is off you can hear pretty clearly when others are talking to you, but with music on you can't hear much. That's was why i said they "don't" isolate THAT well. This seems perfect for gym use since when others talk to you, you can to hear them without having to take the iem off.

Thanks for the loan sf.  Really happy I could hear them and I hope these guys make a version 2 or a hybrid would be interesting.

Well, sounds like I got lucky with a factory reject... I'm coming at this from the other direction. I was near to springing for the1K's

 

There was a couple of comments on the CKS99's on the CKS77 thread (last page), and a few members have posted that they own them, but not impressions.

 

I haven't owned that many iems and I think the 99's need comparing to the 77/77x's and the 1K's to put them in context.

Oh forgot to ask, are you getting them from taobao using a chinese forwarding service like tenso??? If so, these cools go for like $45 USD in mainland china which is a steal for their sound.

 

Good job meng if you're getting them for that price and let us how how much it's gonna cost you and what methods you're using.

The QC on them rejects are unknown. 

 

You are taking a risk. Those could be rejects because they don't meet the sound requirements for the actual CKS99. The first reject CKS77 I got sounded like poo on a stick.. The second one I got did much better..And I remember some of the other guys having issues with them as well but the people we bought them from was good about replacing them. It seems to be a grab bag when it comes to actual sound of them. .

That was exactly what i was thinking, those factory rejects sell for a lot cheaper but they don't label it as such which is kinda shady.

But you get what you pay for like most things so....

Yeah i hope they refine it more with new versions etc, cuz these cools got crazy potential. They should also made the plastics parts of the cable more premium as well, since despite the great cable quality those plastic parts just makes them feel like a chinese cheapo. haha

 

Lets see what the nutman will say when he gets to hear them. CAN"T WAIT!!! Will these cools get his golden nuts award or the poo on a stick??? ph34r.gif

Forum search didn't find it for me! It's shocking that the Corecool Clone makes the Cks99 sound bass light!

Ya' mon the bass on these cools are no joke, might be too much of a good thing. duggehsmile.png Needs to be tamed somewhat that's for sure.

Xears do spare cables that match. I actually find them pretty good. They don't tangle and microphonics are good too. You even have the option to swap for a cable with a Mic. between 18-23 Euros with shipping http://www.xears.com/zubehor?___store=default&___from_store=default

 

Having said that, I've just purchased yet another set of earphones rolleyes.gif they are almost free with the purchase of 2 spare cables and accessories.Postage worldwide. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290931588407?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

Dood is there a way you can help me purchase those corecools lookalikes from Germany amazon, since some peps got banned for trying to promote them and that thread is now deleted. I don't wanna mention the name of the product but they looks so sexy and i am sure they sound exactly like these cools.

 

Will PM you for further details. But thanks in advance!!! beerchug.gif

How ridiculous is that, you're not even allowed to mention them? Is this the g-ddamn Soviet Union?

Welp you can but i don't want to give that shady company any attention since they tried to start a thread to hype their product. There wasn't much hype cuz the sellers seems to be lazy as hell or is just noob at this cuz they didn't even respond to people's emails regarding international shipping, etc. LMAO

 

What a stupid thing to do if you want to hype your sh!T up here on head-fi but don't even follow up on requests regarding purchasing them.

Oh, I seem to have missed that. Must have all gone pretty quickly...

Alrighty guys of the discovery thread.

I've been trying to play catch up, but it's again becoming difficult.

 

What is the best i can do with $25 so far, out of all the discoveries in the past 8 months?

 

so far i've got:

 

sony xba-1

sony mh1-c

ath ckn-50

ath clr100

ath-cor150

various vsonics

 

it's a little hard to tell which of these and the other cheapy iems rise to the top since they seem to have been discovered then forgotten in this thread.

What's the best bang for the buck cheapy iem right now?

 

note: i haven't owned a audio technica iem before.
