Not forgetting the ELE and Hifimediy DAC which I've also bought. Very good sounding gears along with most of the recommendation on this thread at a low cost which will serve well for most if not all.

I am not hearing that. Yes, the bass has amazing presence, but it is controlled, detailed and textured, without the "smothering other frequencies"  that you are experiencing. How many hours of burn in do you have on yours?

The C5 is just miles away in terms of clarity and detail. The MIDS! OMG this is a revelation for me. Now I understand why headfiers invest on such high quality gear. I'll post my detailed impressions as soon as I've listened to my test tracks. Currently testing with Mariah Carey catalogue in ALAC format.

 

What is this JDS labs C5 of which you speak? Just did a bit of googling... sounds good! I wonder how it compares to the E12 and/or C&C BH. No I don't lol!

In fact, I might say that it helps me to enjoy my music without having to spend high end prices. I could have gotten a flagship model but now, I've got 4 iems with different sound sig to play around with. Also, it will allow me to narrow down my absolute preference in regards to sound sig before plunging in for a flagship model. In the meantime, I've got a lot to keep me occupied. Cheers.

 

You have done well so far my friend. It's when you start thinking about spending $500 or more on an iem that you need to start getting worried lol (fortunately I am not there.. yet..).

ODAC, BH2(leader of the pack) and e07k for me but I do love swapping them around just to see what results I get.

BH2 as in C&C BH2 (which is essentially the same as the BH)? It would be interesting to know howtthe C5 compares to the BH/BH2 or the Fiio E12.

That's the one, H20 recommended it to go with my TF10s, but I noticed that they go well with most IEMs I own.

I'd like to see that too, having never heard the C5 or E12.

Yeah, I'm very happy with the BH. Everything sounds great out of it (except the AD900X's which sound best/awesome off of the E12).

@wayne I think you'll love the C5 mate... The bass boost on this amp is AMAAAZING!

For those who are wondering about the C5 and comparisons, Clieos was the one who helped me decide on the best portable amp for the H200.

+1!
The C5 is made for bassheads! With the bass boost on the CKS1000 almost blew my head off! OMG THE BASS!!! basshead.gif Can't believe CKS1000's bass can be taken a step further without affecting other frequencies! I nearly bought the C5 on the spot! Alas, I kept telling myself I was going to buy a Amp/DAC tongue.gif

Need to be careful what C5 pairs with though, as you cant bass boost with the UE900 with any EQ on, sounded bloated and yucky

Are you eyeing on the JDSlabs Objective 2 DAC/AMP? That is on my wish list for my desktop/home rig along with the Fidelio X1. Oh boy... Saving up another $700 is going to be tough. Wifey's gonna kill me...

If only it is portable enough then hell yeah. I've read about the smaller Muse PD1+ being almost on par with it though sounds convincing but so hard to believe I must try it meself!

Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII is getting rave reviews as well

Sad wallets all around tongue.gif

ASG-2 + X1(I have an old K701, the contrasting sound should be interesting) along with a Custom One Pro for my brother's birthday. Yea..... My wallet ain't happy.

I haven't burnt it in if that makes you feel better. =)

 

What are you using to drive it, the Colorfly C3 and C&C amp?  The C3 has slightly less bass than normal (I saw in one FR graph) and the C&C has funky switches on it.  Anyway, I'll give the CKS1K another listen, or burn it in with devils trebles.

 

 

In other news, after extensively listening to some earbuds, Yuin OK2, Sunrise Audio Feeling II, Vsonic UU2 and Audio Technica CM707, I think the Audio Technica is a real class act!  I couldn't find any mention of it on head-fi, nowhere!

I wonder how the new Razer Hammerhead will sound http://www.razerzone.com/gaming-audio/razer-hammerhead/  It's funny how much time they've spent explaining about tips and isolation though. I still remember their first iem the Razer Moray, which was pretty bad but it was some years ago, so they might have improved on that front.
