The FXD80s have very nice sub bass and depth, but don't have as much impact or punch. Vocals are about equal, but approached very differently. With the JVCs vocals are very throaty and more forward. The ATs vocals are sweet, lush, and more balanced with the rest of the sound spectrum. The soundstage of the FXD80s has slightly more depth and less width, while the CKN70s have more width and slightly less depth. They both have a good amount of each attribute. I prefer the soundstage of the CKN70s though, it's a little more surround sound and engaging. The instrument separation is better as well. While the CKN70s are warm and bright the FXD80s are neutral and smooth.

 

Both IEMs have plenty of power and don't need an amp or DAC, but definitely benefit from both. The FXD80s seal with less work for me, but it might not be the same for everyone else. The chord can be a little coily with the ATs, but I feel like it could be tugged a lot harder before something goes wrong. Also, if the wiring on the inside of the housing gets disconnected the CKN70s are very easy to open and re-seal. I haven't been able to get the FXD80s open as of yet.

Thanks for the comparison! I've just pressed the buy button for a pair of black CKNs :D I think I'd enjoy the bass and sound stage on the CKNs more.

Dt990 pro? New on amazon for 150. V shaped like the ckn70s, but open and airy presentation like the ad900x.

Being discussed in this thread, new Sony Hybrids, Sony XBA-H1 and XBA-H3 Hybrid Dynamic and BA IEM  

 

http://www.amazon.com/Sony-XBA-H1-Hybrid-In-Ear-Headphone/dp/B00F2QN1OE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1381932971&sr=8-1&keywords=XBA-H1

 

The XBA-H1, linked above is $150 and seems to be getting really good impressions from the first people that have received them. 

 

These have the potential to be great earphones that play way above their price range.

Thanks! just ordered mine!

 

I was thinking to get a BrainWavz R3, but an iBasso DX50 for 100 euros is a welcome addition! ;-D

I can safely say both these are a great deal on ebay.

Both these make my stuff sound as good as they look.. No need to spend a lot for nice cables for your phones or a nice interconnect. One of the better buys for me for cable accessories.

 

These cables sound just as nice as the Zu cables but is more flexible which makes them more usable for me and since they have a L jack it stays put in my sources better. I had my DX50 connected to my 2Step amp using the X1.. Was lost in my music for several hours. Both these cables make great edition to your gears.

 

Now for the supposed 64 gig card.

These look brand new. Smells brand new. But they are fake. 32gig rejected class 2 cards at the most. You buy you lose. you learn you move on. It sucks that people have to jip other people to make a small sale.

What about the DT770s?

Sad you got a fake card, the only place where buy mine in Europe is in mymemory.co.uk, good warranty, fast shipping and decent prices when you think they got the taxes covered.

I've had a pair EPH-100s for about a year now and i really liked them but the right earphone has started to die on me. I've been reading a lot for the past week and I stumbled across Dsnuts thread on the CKM-500s which sounded amazing....half way through the thread I finally decided I'd purchase them without realising it was fairly outdated by now. And so by the time i reached the end of the thread i found out about the CKN70s which were apparently even better than the 500s for an extra 20 bucks and not only that, they look a hell of a lot better...I started kicking myself for not reading the rest of the thread before purchasing and now the 500s havent even arrived yet and I am really considering also buying the CKN70s. BUT THIS TIME...before I buy anything, just to be sure, are there any other iems under $100 that can compare or are even better than the CKNs that I should consider??

(btw im not a real collector of iems so i had to quickly find a friend to buy the 500s off me as i simply dont have the cash to keep both - im just a high school student lol)

 

There are some really good deals on the Monster gratitudes:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0057X4TWA/ref=sr_1_2_olp?ie=UTF8&qid=1381906440&sr=8-2&keywords=monster+gratitude&condition=new

Read about them... there should be a few impressions on this thread alone. goodluck!

Anyone looking for a really good iem buy <$100 should seriously consider these...just sayin...

And here are two hanghang being played along with other instruments.


I... really want... more than one. What an incredible instrument.

 

Those are very cool. Excellent videos/songs and talent shown as well!

Excuse me, aren't these basically steel drums? Very cool clip/music, though.

Do like these cables, and they look cool :k701smile:...FYI, the people at Zu are back on ebay and sending the less expensive version of the cables again. I got one, haven't sat down to compare to others yet (taking a geek break).

It depends on the model. Prems are harder and harder to find but the Pros are abundant. The Pros are the bassiest of the bunch with smoother treble. You lose out on the airiness and isn't as detailed treble wise but it does isolate well.

How much bass do the DT990s have? Does it have punch and depth; also will it be enough for dubstep? My main issue with the AD900X is the lack of bass. It's not a big deal in most genres, but in electronic it's definitely noticeable.

THE HEADPHONE CABLE COLLECTION (yeah, I know it's not much, but it's relatively new).

in order from left: the Cardas mini to mini, Minor Audio ipod LOD (from Turkey, got on ebay). The Zu Audio mini to mini, and the silver cable, same noted by DS and others above,  ebay. When I'm feeling the need to express my inner geek, I'll sit down and do cable to cable. Haven't even gotten a chance to listen to the Zu yet, just came.

Which Zu cable are you referring to? I can't find the "mini to mini" one that was originally offered. I had to get this one and get them to change the rca end to a mini end. Huh - I see that they have increased the price of that cable from $39.99 to $49.99! :confused:
