Thanks for the advice and quick replies guys. CKS1000 it is then smile.gif

How is the isolation on them btw? They are easy to drive aren't they?

Gee man, i think you will love the ATH CKS1000s. The S2 and the RE400s might be too audiophile/ overly mature for your liking.  Plus you want something that can take a good beating and will last, i don't think the RE400s will cut it and the Philips S2s are semi open, hence it is less versatile than the close back iems.

@Teke

Looks like you are slowly becoming a Totalphile, i am proud of you my son. You getting any driver flex on those bassos???
Anywho glad you are diggin' these "FOTM"s as well. wink.gif

Hahaha... They aren't my favorite. But they are better mid tier all a rounders than my gr06.

Maybe the bassos?

I'm with you on that! I was listening to them last night and they continue to blow me away. Rock/metal sounds absolutely perfect through them.

Hmm. The review for the MP phones comes from a user that just joined today, and before the release of the headphone.

Seems odd.

Imo, Gee is on the right track with the 1K's.
post #11841 of 32904

Those are indeed intriguing. Monoprice has a history of products that were amazing bang for the buck, so hopefully this will be no exception. But they've really gone out on a limb there... this has got to be the world's first non-surround 4-driver full-sized headphone.

With the 1Ks when the music is not on, you can hear your background/ when someone is talking to you really well. But once the music is on, you are not gonna hear a thing, or very little.  Passive isolation is not their strong point.

Let the man have his 1Ks, these lowly bassos ain't gonna cut it!!!

 

Actually if you are on a budget, these Bassos are killa set of balanced yet smooth and warmish/ bassy set of iems with big soundstage. Nothing sounds recessed and everything comes out to play esp. dat BASS!!!

 

The sound of the 1Ks is much more dynamic and as much as i hate this damn word "visceral" in its overall presentation, esp. the lows. It doesn't play around meng.

Welp, if you already have the tenores getting the bassos might be a bit redundant. I have never heard the tenors but it seems both are very similar in sound signature and presentation. Getting the CKS1Ks would probably add an interesting spin to your collection no doubt. I am sure they are pretty different sounding to those CKM99s of yours. If you have the CKS99s, the CKS1000s might be a bit redundant. haha

 

But i just looked them up on Amazon jpn and their prices seemed to have jumped up, remember they were only ~$130 something but now they are $170s. triportsad.gif Just a heads up that's all. Maybe that stupid top rankin' chart thing had to do with their sudden price increase. angry_face.gif Stupid charts!!!

They don't release until tomorrow. It's actually just a rebrand though. Maybe he is commenting on the original that goes for $88

LMAO, you trying to start a carbon fiber collection or something. Noticed that C&C amp of yours. wink.gif Ya' know what i did a carbon fiber wrap on the headband o the ES7s and they looks so freaken BOSS now, more comfy as well.

 

The RE400s are probably most suitable for your bass sissy needs no doubt.

I hear you Wayne! Just wasn't ready for the purchase. Got a new pair of xba1 for $20! This is what I'm giving to my dad instead of the Bassos. I just can't let go of them... Might be awhile before I upgrade to CKS1000.
