haha yeah, since i own the Vsonics i don't feel the need for the ATH CKS1Ks or those S2s that bad. That is why i have skipped them despite they are both amazing sounding. Yeppp those RHA MA750s looks real sweat as well, hope they are as amazing as they look.

 

Thanks for the great price for those S2s anyways!!! :beerchug:

Don't feel the need for the CKS1000s?! That's blasphemy! You're a traitor master troll!

beerchug.gif No prob. Yeah, I hope so too, they're cheap enough for me to consider trying as a side-grade to my current phones.

Gotta hook them up somewhere and beat the crap out of those drivers.

I also ordered these, couldn't resist at that price. It will probably take a couple of weeks for them to arrive over here though. I also own the s2 and love them so I'm looking forward to your comparison between them.

Quick update on Gratitudes-put on Complys, tamed highs quite a bit, still not as smooth as the Miles Davis, from memory, but nice, detailed. Gotta go to work, try burning (if I can find a place to do it that doesn't have my wife rolling her eyes at me) :wink_face:

Sounds good. I'm really looking forward to try these. It's my first monster IEM's and I do not have high expectations but just could not resist to try at the current prices.

 

Side note: They will cost me a little over $100 delivered with all taxes paid but retail price over here is about $330 so if they sound nice I still made a good deal. In case anyone did'nt notice I've got really bad impulse control:D

Hmm...$20 earphone from a budget manufacturer has a similar look to a $100 earphone from one of the big ortho competitors. Hmm....

Well, I'm not in a rush. Bowei has a demo unit and he should be releasing a review in a couple of weeks, so there still be time to pre-order it if its any good as it is expected to be in stock on 25th. Anyway rushing to get one just to save 3 bucks is not exactly a bargain if it turns out to be a lemon.

Actually, I don't know why I thought it was the Delta that he got - he has the Brainwavz S1

The cheapest one is the most interesting one, I wonder if it use the same driver as the original Live! or if Foster upgraded the driver (the TH600/TH900 generation)...

I have to give Dsnuts kudos again. Despite high praise from hims (and DannyBai), and my love for the X1, I had very low expectations for the S2. Yet, it has consistently blow me away from open box to the get burn-in I have on them now. It's not the M200, but it's so close in my listening enjoyment. Nice. 

 

Now, I'm worried, because I have such high expectations for the Onkyo earphone but the reviews are making me nervous. Although I know what burn-in did for the CKS1000, so not too worried. I don't want to buy another headphone, but you guys are tempting me to get the Onkyo headphone. How does it rank to the WS99 and M500 (DannyBai, if didn't ask already)?

 

Then again, I'm suppose to get the premium earphone by Onkyo for under $100, so we'll see.

post #13783 of 32868
Well onkyos in ears arriving on thursday. I'll give impressions then. But agreeing with eric the early impressions are a bit concerning. Lets just hope they'll get better with burn in. Though if they dont much of my collection is edm so not too much of an issue for me xD

Not sure if its worth getting if you already own other quality headphones like the M500's or WS99. It is a different presentation so it can be worth while. I like both Onkyo's, especially at the given price but its not better than several other gears in this thread. Neither of mine have much over 50 hours of burn in so only time will tell but I have a feeling more changes will come, especially with these cables. I would still recommend them as a safe purchase.
post #13785 of 32868

Regarding the Zu mission cable for the X1, this is what I did and what they told me anyone could do:

 

- buy this cable (but from ebay.com instead of ebay.ca):

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/360731322714?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649

 

- during the purchase or afterwards, ask them to change it to a "mini to mini" termination and they will do it for no charge.

 

Don't blame me though if anything goes horribly wrong!
