post #12961 of 32910
So i have been looking into a solid bass earphone (since I have tried and enjoyed some of the older versions). I would like to know how the cks99 (and/or cks77x) compares to the cks1000 given the price difference. Thanks.

Oh and the s2 is listed as semi open so does it have sound leakage (kind of important dont want to disturb people when I use them)

CKS99 are going off of reports are a less refined CKS1000. Similar tuning I suspect..The CKS77X sound is really foward a bit too forward for me. It is enjoyable enough but I am too used to my CKS1000. The S2s I was using at my school library sitting in with a bunch of people around me I didn't disturb anyone. They have pretty good isolation for being semi open. Speaking of. You guys see this nice white color?

 

I do hope my situation with the KEF M200 is more of an isolated case than the norm.  Ericp and Danny both don't have any issues.

 

I will just have to save my money for something else.

Wow thanks for the response . Just wondering if the cks1000 is good enough to warrant the difference in price. Though i might just get the s2 seeing as how they are almost the same price as the cks99. Saw this s2's on amazon.co.jp they look pretty great.

I'm going to have to pass on the m200s micro drivers never seem to fit me well unfortunately.

That sucks ds! At least I can temporarily remove you from my ignore list now...

Okay, but not everyone is having the problem Dsnuts is having. I generally use large tips and I have the large tips on the M200. It fits me great. So while I agree that KEF should look at tip design in future models, I think it is wrong to assume these wont fit most listeners. Again, the tip is meant to be shallow, but the back of earphone's body should be pushed in and sit the way the back of a custom would sit inside your ear. Too bad Ds.

Why don't you grab the M500 now?
post #12968 of 32910
I'm normally square in the medium size, which is super convenient since I never seem to need to switch tips after opening a new IEM. I'm just judging by those scaled pictures - the m200 look massive.

I got the right ear piece to fit correct but my problem was with the left piece. It kept on coming out. Imagine getting a good seal on one side and a loose one on the other. That is what was happening to me no matter what I tried.  My left ear canal is shaped a bit different than my right it seems and that is the reason why I can't get these to work for me..When I can put a dish type housing in the ear I don't have this issue as the dish itself is pushing the tips in toward the canal. I can fit the giant MP8320 in my ears with no issues but these are different in the they are truly tip dependent.

 

These earphones only have the ear hooks to help hold the entire earphones in place which doesn't work for me at all.. I was contemplating keeping these and just using my FXD tips for now and try out something like Bose tips or even those custom molding kits or something but the more I thought about it. I am happy with my other in ears enough to let these go. I simply don't have the time to be trying to fix these to work with my ears all day long. These earphones out of my NFB-5 is something to behold. Just for that reason alone I would love to be able to keep these. Not to mention how nice these sound from the X3.

 

I found myself constantly messing with the tips and not truly enjoying how good these sound..

 

What kinda took me by surprise is I have never had any issues with a fit of an earphone for anything. These are the first..I do think most will be able to get a good fit on these but unfortunately I happen to be that guy with the fit issue. Might try the KEF M500.

Ah, there are those silver bullet dunu's again! Have you heard them?

 

I hadn't seen the RHA's before, but they have a slip web page here and the MA750i's look slick as well. And look at that flat FR graph, Wow.

Yeah too bad buddy, but I think you will dig the M500. I was just listening to it, and for totally different reasons I like it as much as the M200 (although I prefer the M200's sound signature because of the bass and a few other things). The M500 is a brilliant sounding portable, and is right under my X1 in technical excellence in a headphone. By the way, did you keep or sell your FAD (the bassy one, Asagio?)? 

post #12974 of 32910

The RHA 750s look nice, but I think I can resist with the M200. And the Dunu I was thinking about getting, but it seems to be just a dynamic and BA (rather than a dynamic and dual BA like the H-200). I don't think I'm interested. Onkyo and call it quits. Plus that AS-2  is really doing it for me (although the M200 is going to eat into its time). It's that good.

I still own them Fads actually. Kept them around. Still listen to those once in a while.
