These cans right here. What can they remind you guys of.?

 

Are these the ones that you had in mind?

 

Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil

 

Those were the first headphones that came to my mind.  And indeed they look quite similar.  They are the SONY MDR-V6.

 

Bravo!!! for the statement about going for an open or semi-open design.

I should also add:  Bravo!!! for the statement about going for an open or semi-open design.

I've been trying to repress those, actually.

 

KIDDING.

 

Hmm. Between AKG, Takstar, and Sony, iSK definitely looks a bit like a "me-too" sort of company. Hopefully, they sound as good as the companies they emulate.

 

Anyway, I don't think they're going to accept my offer on that amp. I'll try making another offer tomorrow at around this time, when I'm allowed to make another one.

I really hate that I'm about to type this, because you all know I love the JVC house sound, but If I'm going to be honest I will have to say that the ATH-CKN50 has a better overall sound than the FXD80/70 (and I'm not suggesting those two aren't still great sounding). But the instrument separation, clarity and details are just blowing me away. Now, the JVCs blow the AT away in every other aspect (especially cable and housing). The cable sucks, but sound is just amazing to me. It's making it even harder

for me not to splurge on the CKS1000.

 

I should add that the JVCs have certain aspects it does better, but I probably won't do any extensive A/Bing until this weekend.

@eric I agree, I think the CKN50 edges out the FXD80 too. AT is one upping JVC with their microdrivers. I have a feeling the CKN70 will be something truly special.

+1. The CKN50 sounds better to my ears than the FXD80's. I really enjoy the more forward mids on CKN50's.

If you must you must. Lol Though the good news now is the Japanese Yen is falling. I read the reasoning for the falling Yen is to compete with China and Korea.. Makes sense to me. When the CKN70s are available those should be very interesting..

 

For the cost the CKN50 as all of us that do have them agree are very nice sounding iems..I think they are better than anything I have heard at that cost. I bet even as the CKN70 comes out these will stand on their own merits. I mean they do now already.

"Wearing headphones rotating DJ an unborn baby!"

 

I presume that DJ, short for Darryl Junior, is an audiophile fetus who wears headphones in the womb. Also, he rotates, because why not?



What. A. Boss.

 

 

Iunno. I'll do some more research to see if they're solid.

@dweaver I know you mentioned them Bn W C5s. Kinda costly. but look at what I found. Could be legit?  http://www.aliexpress.com/item/New-Bowers-Wilkins-C5-In-Ear-Earphone-Headphones-Headsets-For-iPod-iPhone-iPad-high-quality/722606687.html Aliexpress has what seems to be 90% plus fake beats and souls. But these c5s could these be real?

 

Wow who needs the deals thread when you got deals like this.. I am sure 100% legit M-50s. for $35. Damn I spent way too much on mines. http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-shipping-2012-new-hot-selling-M-50-earphone-M-5-0-Headphone-M-50-M50s/535265640.html

I just use my E11. It adds more volume and body to the sound as well as the low end using the bass boost on there. That is the cheapest amp I own.

I plan on getting the E11 to go with it as well. Seems like the perfect match. And I'll have a portable amp if I ever need it.

The only real negative on the E11 is they can't be charged while listening to them. If you can hold out for some of the newer Fiios. That is the way I would go. This is what I mean you can get this unit here. http://www.amazon.com/FiiO-E07K-Portable-Headphone-Amplifier/dp/B00A9LHLQ6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1360185675&sr=8-1&keywords=fiio+e07k  This is an improved version of what was a classic for not much more than a E11. The E11 was a good one but I have a feeling the E12 will be better value.  This thing here looks serious to me. http://www.head-fi.org/t/620339/fiio-flagship-portable-amp-mont-blanc-e12-discussing-thread-the-pre-order-unit-arrives#post_8567732..

ELE DAC + E11 does work very well. But yes, that E12 looks potentially awesome. Here's a thread comparing it to the C&C BH.
