That´s what I keep hearing, I need to check it out for myself. I did some research looking for some HP with great bass, nice sound, great looks and in a way quite uncomplicated. I think these could be the ones

Also S680 is on ear for most people - a very comfortable one, but still an on ear.


Seriously...

 

They are both on-ears from close competing Japanese makers, have the same driver size, similar overall size, and price bracket etc. What they are named is far down the list as far as Head-fier's are concerned or anyone who is in the "know". Maybe a cheap trick by AT  to confuse/lure the "sheep" between the models but regardless of name it is an apples to apples comparison and the phones are very similar in many facets.

- Me thinking the Pistons doesn't best the CKN70 doesn't mean the Pistons aren't very good and aren't worth to sit in that same category.

 

- And it's about sound signatures you like anyway, so you may not agree with me (which is fine with me). I still read a few reviews by head-fiers I generally respect who say the Cardas suck and that the EX-1000 is better sounding than the H3. I don't agree with those opinions at all, but I understand that we like what we like. 


To be fair the CKN can aim itself wrong and suffer from some occlusion effect because of those unnecessary loops. This does lower the performance for some people. I think I heard the CKN at it's best and from reports of the Pistons(that I haven't heard), it seems that the two are on a similar level of sound and that the cable, price, fit etc.may be where there real noteworthy differences are.

I don't know about gaming specifically, but they are awesome for music. That was an insane deal.

yeah, i mean, the reviews i've read for music listening purposes don't seem as superb as what i read they were for gaming but i'm sure i would have enjoyed them. the only pair of cans i own is the sennheisers and i only use them for gaming with my astro mixamp. but it would've been nice to have a new pair of cans to try out.

Good though if you have neck problems and need to stabilize your head. ;)

New Official Zero Audio single balance armature stereo headphone ZH-BX510-CS

Single armature version of the DOPPIOS.  Nobody we know has heard these yet.  DSnuts predicts they may have more bass and a more musical tuning than the flat reference Doppios.

I have ordered them and they should be here at the end of this week or middle of next week thanks to e bay's  ace of bicycles2004 seller expedited delivery included.  same technology breaktrhoughs

as the doppios but single nano balanced armature.  Cant wait to give em a good burn and listen and report back to the front.
