Read way back that these were ok for their cheap price but nothing special. Good for exercise, etc.

What matches up is the sound description from Jokers review on the CKM99 and others. They are describing the Isaurus exactly there is no denying this..Sure I would love to just purchase a CKM99 and do A/B testing to make sure but you know what. I know what I hear and I am hearing the exact description.. Read what SoundFreaq wrote and that was before he even read Jokers review. Do the comparison on what he wrote and what joker wrote on the description for the CKM99.

 

@Inks I think I wouldn't have been so happy if I spent $200 on the CKM99 so you are right but for $20?


Heres an idea....sacrifice a pair of Thermaltakes and pair of CK99's and open the housings up to ID the drivers.

 

While that might be costly you very well could verify if they indeed are the same drivers.

New toy came in today.  Nice housing, seems well built.  Strain reliefs are nice and great L plug.  Small and light.  Only flaw is the thin rubbery cable.  Has Mic and remote which seem well built into the cable but the buttons are recessed and I have to use my fingernails to press them.  Comes with a square semi-hard case and five tips, two pairs are tri-flanges.  Very nice packaging.  

 

Sounds very neutral.  The whole sound spectrum is evenly presented.  It could use a bit more sparkle for my taste.  So far, no wow factor for me but I like a little color in my sound.  Bass is precise with soft impact and does not bleed.  Vocals are not forward but definitely not recessed.  Treble is smooth and gives enough details but lacks the sparkle I mentioned earlier.  Very small drivers so some burn-in might help these out.  Very nice looking earphone though.

The HA-FX8 is known as the Riptidz. It sounds quite good for around $7, and imo it is the best IEM under $10. In the $14-20 range though, the Panasonic RP-HJE355 and JVC HA-FX40 are much better than the Riptidz.

Thanks... looks like a worthy option. But how then would the cks77 still be a grade below the 60's?

Did I say they were a grade below the 77's?  Didn't mean to.  Depending on personal preferences, it could go either way.  The 60's have more sub-bass then the 77's and the 77's have more mid-bass.  77's bass hits harder if I remember correctly.  Soundstage is about even and the 77's might have more treble.  I prefer the 60's over the 77's but not everyone will.

these sony XB90's are presented as better, so was wondering if it would hold true for the 60's.

I have to do something about all these phones, besides listening.
