There's always next time. Just like ZA and Onkyo, they have proven that they know their stuff when it comes to music, a little tweaking is all that's needed to make them truly impressive in an overall sense.

Could anyone give a brief comparison of the cks1000 and the fidelio s2 please? I listen to a lot of edm, I think the cks1000 might be better for that in general but the s2 is around $40 cheaper. I guess I'm mainly wondering how the bass compares really since both seem to have excellent mids and highs. Sorry if this has been asked/mentioned earlier.

I can totally see the Kef tips not working for some people, just to bad you were one of them DS. I also see some people just never liking their fit style even if they fit, they go contrary to most IEM tips. For me because I am always looking for a shallow fit these are good for me.

So... an IEM that doesnt look like one, doesnt fit like one, and doesnt sound like one..

Very mind-boggling!floatsmile.png

(Also the possible problems with driver flex with the Bassos have scared me away from them a little.)

The only problem is getting my hands on a pair - is using Tenso still the best way to buy them? Ebay seems slow and a bit pricier. Or is there any other IEM with similar qualities that's easier to acquire?


A tiny bump in hope of getting some replies, if you don't mind.

I'm telling you the sound of the M200 is not knocking at the door, but it's up there with the ASG-2, W4, FI-BA-SS, and surpasses the EX1000, H-200, and CKS1000 to my ears. It's a treat to the ears.


Are you implying that W4 is as good as FI-BA-SS and ASG-2 at around 1/3 of a price?

W4R is just 325$ now at Amazon...

Okay, I'm on my computer instead of mobile phone and rereading your question. Top tier equal a certain level of earphones that are top technically. So technically the W4 is "as good" as the FI-BA-SS and ASG-2. Does that mean the W4 sounds better than those two? For me, no, but for others maybe. Hope that clears things up.

I don't understand what you are saying. Doesn't "is a top tier with those others" mean "as good"?

It is much cheaper - at around 1/3 of a price.

I thought a modified W4 I auditioned was really very good. What kept it away from being spectacular was that it somehow sounded less natural than other high end models I'be heard. I can't really say how =/

An odd bird of an enigma that phone IMO. Like a wild beast that's been caged. Very good resolution and I was especially impressed with how they tuned it for coherency.
