I thought you owned GR07s (them being BE or MKII escapes me) Maybe break them out for the trip?

So it has been a while that I have used my eq on my Sony dap. I changed my S2 to the UE tips. I am getting the best seal using UE silicones. The sony tips are worth owning for these too. The tips change the sounds a tiny bit. The UE tips fit the best for my ears the sound is a bit more open which is what this sound benefits from. The bass is great with these tips. I think especially the mids are a bit better using the UE tips..

 

Using my fun eq. I have one I premade on my Z1060. It gives a kinda of a S2 version of the CKS1000 type sound. I was completely surprised.. More bass, mids and highs with clear bass on the player. These actually eQ really well. I was completely surprised as they sounded clearly more dynamic than even before. So that is always a cool thing to find out..I am weak in the ways of eQ but this one just set the strengths of the S2 off. The old W eQ.

 

Forward that sound signature. More bass, more mids and more highs all up in your face..It sounds a bit like AT sound signature now..I am guilty of tip rolling and tweeking a neutral signature.

Never felt the need to eq since I really like the sound of them. Might have to play around with my BBE Pro to see if I can make them dance to a different tune. smily_headphones1.gif

It's been a while since I have EQ'd. Funny how when I first got into this hobby, I was an eq'ing madman. Different eq settings for each iem/headphone, and they all had to be setup on my various devices. Ultimately, being lazy to the point where I would rather waste spend money instead, I finally snobbed out and decided to go on the quest to find iems/headphones that work for me without eq'ing. Which I admit may not be the smartest way to go lol!

 

Anyway, speaking of no EQ, I got my Colorfly C3 player. It doesn't have any EQ functions. It doesn't have any functions actually except for being able to play songs in a folder. "Spartan" functionality is a good way to describe it, so it's a good thing that I didn't want to be doing any eq'ing etc. I mainly got the C3 because quite a few people like the synergy of the C3 with the C&C BH amp and the H200 iems (I already have the BH, and recently got the H200's). I can confirm that yes, the C3 is awesome, and the synergy of the C3/BH/H200 is awesome. There is no doubt that it is a very clean, clear and beautiful sounding player. It makes me want to re-rip all of my songs to lossless to get the most out of it.

 

Anyway, I should also point out that the 1K's also sound friggin' amazing off of it. I didn't think they could sound even more phenomenal, but yes, they can. Colorfly me a happy camper!

i will be like the ass starving to death between two piles of hay;  x1 on one side, ath cks1000 on the other....

cant decide or afford both,.....might have to wait till fall for new at series to come out and blow all of these away..ha!

thanks for your deliberations, dsnuts, and its true that deciding what one really wants is a most difficult task with 

such wonderful choices....my ckm99 are still my favorite electronic music at source....

listening to rs1s today, vintage ones, through bravo tube amp through NOS dac very satisfying but a bit bass shy...

might have to to with the x1s..or regress to xb90s..

Sounds like CKS1000 still earns a spot in your heart (and ears) waynes world
Now that you have both H-200 and CKS1000, care to compare them please?

i just burned in my C3 also. operating system is quite a challenge but eventually its logical.

my tenores and xba 3s sound superb out of it by themselves.  about ready to try it

with a rs predator and cks99s.  could be a monster combination.

everyone seems to love the bh amp...is it class A like RS equipment??

The CKM50 was replaced by the CKM500 which you can buy now. And that particular sound signature has more in common with the CKS99 and CKS1000. The newer AT sound has advanced. More balanced and emphasis on great mids.. Extending the highs most of the time greatly. Them older ones a bit too much. but AT sound is AT sound all the newer stuff sounds better from previous efforts. CKS1000 are superior to all the CKM earphones I have heard.

Glad that worked out. I hope I feel the same with the X3.

Doesn't looks like what I have now. Mine are from the TF10 grey silicon and wonders are they the same tips with a different colour. Mine looks taller and narrower rather conical shape. Any idea? Thanks.

Save up for a (long overdue) PC upgrade. Or get the TPeos H-200........ Upgraditis is hitting me very hard this year.

I took the silicone larges I have on my TF10 off. Grey pairs right? They are a bit different from the UE500 tip silicones. The silicones on the UE500 has thicker nozzles and have a touch smaller diameter to the one on the TF10s.. Since we all have different shaped canals these are what works for me so guys will have to experiment to get the best sound for them. If them tips sound good than they must sound good..Those UE500s them tips on there are worth a purchase price alone and they have a good sound too. You get a pair of Complys as well.

 

I am using the larges from this set.

Not custom, but it has presets.
