Pre-burned in at the factory?

I wish they all were to be honest. AT never burns in their phones. JVC is guilty as well.

Any of you guys own the CKM500 and the X3. Gotta give that a go.

I gave my pair of CKM500s to my wife while ago since I've got my CKS1K but when I've found that the synergy of CKS1K and X3 is not very good so I borrowed her CKM500s to try them out and found that their synergy is way better than CKS1K.

Yamaha EPH-100 are very good with X3 as well.

Damn!. The ES-HF300s are doing it for me..Something kinda changed since I been burning these non stop. They sound AMAZING using my X3. Before they sounded good but not quite how they sound now.

 

While I enjoy the IE-HF300s earphones..These headphones! WOW.. These have clearly separated themselves from the earphones in sound. These are now giving my ES700 some serious competition..The detail on these phones are stunning.

 

Mightly impressed. These are blowing my mind at the moment. No other way to describe it. These sound unbelievably good to my ears..

 

I remember these sounded a bit clinical on early listen..That has turned into lushness, smoothness, clean, absolute EUPHORIC.!!

 

Ericp all I am saying is wait till you get about a 150 hours onto them titanium drivers. You think they sound good to you now..

Hmmm... These or the X1. Decisions, decisions....


Also, small heads-up. I'm selling both my S2 and H-200s within the next day. While I enjoy both, my TF10s, IE-HF300 are the only ones I use now.

The rumored $120 for the silver cables for the H-200 helped me make the decision for them. Figured I'd let people here in the thread have a shot at them 1st.

The X1s I would say if you plan on using them for your home but if you need one for on the go and isolating..I can't get these off my head at the moment. Had a few eargasms. Lol.

 

The synergy with the X3 is now off the chain.

 

The mids sounded somewhat flat on early listen on these headphones. Especially compared to the earphones.. But the mids now are deep lush, liquidy..Burn in my friends is for real. Lol. The sparkle the bass now the mids. Oh man!

I use IEMs mostly for when I'm up and about. I'll only be using these when I'm at home. Hmm.... Maybe I can trade for a pair. Lol

Ooo, me too.
My S2 arrived today so I'm acclimating to it, but I think I'll keep em as my balanced phone. Comfy, mic/control, build, easy and fun sound. It may still need to burn in as the fx700 sound much smoother, and I would say from the brief listwn the JVC are more capable but not by much. And theyre not as clear with the midbass.

Ok, I'll give it a try, have an issue, though. I don't do well with iems that have large casings, generally seem to have trouble getting a good fit/seal. Tried the silicon tips that came with the S2, no good. Tried the Comply they came with, better, still not a great fit/seal. Have better Complys, will try that next. The Gratitude has a bit of an odd shape, but I can twist and turn and get a decent fit. Have the same problem with AT 1k, and other iems, like Brainwave, Vsonic, others. Tend to do best with straight tube then tip, like the Tenore, Sony XBA3, Etys, you get the idea (an exception is Westone, whose housing fits into my ear/pinna like hand in glove). I'll play some more with tips then give it a go.
On another subject, X3/AT 1k compatability, I mentioned this once before, but it is worth repeating. I didn't like the X3/AT 1K combo either,figured I'd experiment with the line out into a portable amp (Continental).The 1K's sounded better then I ever heard them sound-kept the excitement they are known for, widened the stage, better detail, loved the combo. Only had a chance once, and, of course, will depend on the particular amp you use...the amp section of the X3 must be where the coloration is. Haven't heard other Fiio amps, but, if they're similar, they wouldn't work as line out, obviously. This also makes a 1 box dap into a 2 box deal, lose some of the convenience. But, if you happen to have a portable amp handy, I'd say it's worth experimenting before buying another (then again, whoever has the most toys, wins, right?) smily_headphones1.gif

Last note...put the M-L Mykros 90 in its case, set it aside to burn in took it out, pad is coming apart. Don't think this has removable pads, will have to send it back to NewEgg or Martin Logan (still do like the sound, may have quality control issues, maybe that's why they're being heavily discounted)

I believe you Dsnuts. They sounded great to me out of the box though with the x3. Tomorrow at 6 p.m. I've have 75 hours non-stop burn-in on them, so I'm getting close. Until the IE-HF300 drops in price, I will forgo them. I will have the W4r and Cardas Mirror on Monday. I'm going to connect my BTG silver cable to the W4, so I'm expecting big things. I've missed the W4. Anyone wanting to buy my H-200, BA200, or TDK IE800 should inbox me.

Also, the CKM500 does sound great with the X3.  Happy listening!

 

Dunu DN-1000 or DX50 on the plate next. I don't know which one yet.

Nah, pretty close to what I paid for it. It didn't get a lot of listening time with all the other stuff I have, so it's in pristine condition. I find that some head-fiers in foreign countries find it hard to get good quality equipment like this unless they buy from someone in the states.

Pretty much. Both my S2 and H-200 are imports. I'll post a classified for them later on. No pics as of now.
