Update on the XB90EX. I have a good 80 hours now non stop and I am happy to report. These sound marvelous. The highs are so much better now than on open box. They clearly have presence now where before the other parts the mids and bass was stronger..Much better balanced out and the sound is a very natural one..It lost a bit of that smoothness for more definition now. Which was unexpected.

 

The sound has tightened up and sounds great. Not only bass tunes but non bassy ones sound marvelous Big roomy full on sound on these and great imagery. The Audiophiles bass earphones is a great title for these. One of the most refined bass earphones I have ever heard to date. The control in all regions seems easy for these big drivers..

 

I know with the recent excitement for the new JVC HA-S500 has slowed down this thread a bit but for guys that want the best of the best high end bass earphones. Do not over look these..Both are completely worth your hard earned cash If on ears sound uncomfy for you. Save your cash to try one of these..Trance has never sounded better. Just amazing for electronica and edm as well as Hiphop. I take that back these sound great for everything actually.

 

You know what this sound like? These are a more refined CKS77.. I have never heard mids this good on a bass earphone. The highs are non fatiguing but now have a very nice presence. Space of the tunes are grand but these have the tech to fill out that grand stage better than the CKS77. Unreal.

Yup

post #2873 of 32858

Ok so I don't think I will be getting that $50 CKS77 anymore :L
Ill look at getting that XB90EX too, but for now its to expensive, and Im also kinda intrigued about the CKM500

Apparently its great!

post #2874 of 32858

Hmm,

What do you reckon?
CKM500 for $58?
Or 
CKS77 for $52?

Considering that I already have the FX101.

Thanks

Personally I would go for the CKM500s, because it seems more versatile and probably sound great with all tunes.  BUT If you have a huge collection of bass heavy music then it's the CKS77s, it basically boils down to what's your favorite type of tunes really.  The CKM500s would be a great contrast/ alternative to the FX101's thats for sure. Variety is always best right? 

 

Oh and are you getting the 500s from cd japan and the 77s are ebay USA?

 

Hey you know what's the deal with the 77s with a straight jack and some with a 90 degrees one, since you have probably done your homework.

Oh yea I listen to electronics stuff like Rap, Hiphop, Pop, with the whole bassline thing, like Chris Brown etc. but I also have a wide collection of all the old classics like the Bee Gees! haha

Stuff like that!

So still the CKM500?

I noticed you say these are an upgrade to the beloved 77's, but are they just an upgrade in terms of clarity and staging, or is it also an upgrade in terms of bass of "fun" sound as well?  Also is the music/sound as "thick" and BIG as the 77 produces?

Make a decision and just buy something. They are all good for the music you mentioned. Can't go wrong with especially the M500
post #2880 of 32858

The Black CKS77's are going for $52 new shipped on ebay, although one has a straight audio jack and one has the 90 degrees one.  Both seems real but seems kinda strange to me, though there seems to be limited edition ones with different color schemes as well.......

 

Well I mostly listen to hip hop as well, but in the long run I think you will get tired of too much bass in your IEMs tbh.  I have the FX40s and the 101s, although the extra bass is crazy nice on the 101s, the overall immersion of the music is a lot better with the 40s cuz of it's more balance signature.  

 

I read that the sound of the CKM500s are thick and lush with also a decent amount of bass, which is kinda unique.  I would pick the 500s over the 77s for sure, just to see what the hype is about. But hey that's just me....
