Those with those corecools say they are better detailed and bigger soundstage then AT CKN70s?

RRP is 99 euro.

This is the thing that makes Xears a bit of a dodgy outfit to me despite good products - those aren't just some imaginary RRPs, the guy actually charges those prices if one doesn't use the coupons. Imagine buying one of these for €100+ and then finding out you could have had it for €35 (even used to be €30)! He's basically admitting they're not worth more than that, but trying his luck to see if people will pay more. Most of the people buying them probably read about them online and found out about the coupon, but I still find it rather unethical.

They are very different animals. The cools is an "bass" iem for sure, so lows is their main emphasis. As Ds stated that most cheapo generic bass centric iems fails not only in reproducing quality mids and highs but quality lows as well. What is special about these cools is that not only do they have quality bass in abundance but they also have pretty good mids and highs. Their soundstage is what's truly unique for me, so what you are getting is big bass/ sound along with forward mids flying all over you face and non harsh highs all spaciously spread out by that big transparent soundstage.

 

The CKN70s on the other hand is more mid/treble centric with a pretty good soundstage. The lows is fast, punchy and hits just low enough that it doesn't feel lacking. The micro details of the mids and highs no doubt is better on the CKN70s, but for me mids and highs are done really well on the cools (and it's not that far off) and they are non fatiguing at all unlike the CKN70s. So the cools has that WOW factor sound signature that is big/bold and transparent, while the CKN70s is more detailed, energetic and more intimate.

Lol dude why are you trying to find a miracle for pennies?

Just go for something like VSD1 or Basso or Tenore. Then if they don't fully satisfy you sell them and go for something else.

I think it's obvious you're not gonna get everything you want in a £40 IEM.

from what i can tell, there are trade-offs in audio. Like full forward mids for vocals? you'll likely get a more intimate sound-stage.

 

Like a wide sound stage? You're probably looking at a light v-shape; details come with sharp sparkled highs, ect.

^ I have the bassos coming in for an audition and fill tell ya'll how these cools add up. I am looking for HUGE soundstage and lots of details in the mids and good extended highs on them that will best the cools. Will see in due time..........................soon.

I think Xears XWF600 will fit the bill too, if they stay at their current price.

Should get them next week at some point.

I'll have to say the UE500's that Ds advised for $25 is heck of a deal.  Packaging is excellent.  Pair of nice Comply's and the UE tips are excellent.  I'm very impressed with the sound also.  Snatch these up for a measly $25 fellas.

^That hurts Danny :S

If I wouldn't have just bought the Xears and planning to buy VSD1 as soon as LMUE get back to me I'd totally go for the UE500.

What do they sound like with Trance? How's the bass and treble, any sibilance?

Oh yeah, that. I was lucky to get a good deal on mine when I got them, which definitely helped.

wound this review about the woodynator (XWH700pro)

 

translated with google translate:

 

Headphones made ​​of wood?
That's what I was wondering.
I was curious how these headphones (I know Xears and I am convinced by this brand) so I bought it.
I was buff!
It is not only wunscherschöne headphones, but also damn good.
To the sound:
Really terrific heights, voices and sounds.
It just sounds very coordinated.
I have these headphones always with you now, people do not look bad when they see these wooden headphones.
I use these headphones for quieter music, since these are not as bass-heavy as the others.
So if you are looking for a perfectly balanced sound is absolutely right here.
Thank you :)
I would buy again. (Posted on 2/14/13)
 
hmmm wich one should be a better deal the XWF600 for €20 of the XWH700pro for €35 :S

He could have both. I'm putting my Vsd1 and Ckn70 up for sale later today.
