So before the impressions there was only the Shure dampening?

Both but I will revise with more listen with just the Shure dampening. Sounds much better that is for certain.

Yeah, I was gonna say! xD. Must suck to have written that whole big impression only for something like this to happen. 

 

Sorry for not mentioning this earlier!

Sounds like a roundabouts kind of answer. Look forward to hearing the fixed impressions *wink*

XBA-30's and XBA-40's are a whole new ballgame.

I don't think I can wait. Just gonna order both XBA-40 and CKN70. May the best one win!

 

How long does it usually take for shipment to come to the East Coast once a order has been placed?

ROFLOL,   ...Yeah, I have them all on splitters, the Missus got no problems with my audio gears after she imposed a "No computer, audio gears or any hobby stuffs in the bedroom" rule a year ago.

 

Now I just leave them burning on the computer in the living room so it bugs nobody except maybe the guard dog (who also doubles as a sniifer dog biggrin.gif) but she seems to not mind.

Thanks Ericp,  ...yup, the CKN70 has the same crappy cable that is on the CKN50, if there is any major fault of the new CKN series it will be the cables, they would be the offsprings if the cables from the SHE3580 and MH1C mated, springy wires of the SHE3580, irritating J cord design of the MH1C and tangle-proneness of both !

 

Woah !  ...just had an eargasm listening to Alone by Heart with the CKN70 as I type this ! L3000.gif

Just to listen to this one track alone is worth buying the CKN70 for !!!! 

 

With the sonic powress of the CKN70, it is easy to soon forget about the crappy cables.

You better watch out ghost, with all that ruckus from those iems your poor lil' "sniffer" puppy might bite yo' @ss cuz mistaken you as an intruder due to being sleep deprived.  Poor thing is gonna be sonically tortured and assaulted for a longggg while by all those new gears of yours. LoL I feel for her meng.

  fifty does not approve!!! biggrin.gif

They are circumaural (Over ear) for me, but only just, I can feel the extremities of my ears touching the padding but they are comfortable enough to not pose any problems.

DAMN that sucks to hear about the lackluster cable, but is it microphonic at all??? This pretty important for me. You meant "j" cord design right, cuz i remember reading somewhere these are j cords.

I'm guessing this would give me a hard time choosing between the CKN70 and XBA30.

 

What are your thoughts on this Dsnuts?

 

Can't help there as I don't have a XBA30 to make any fair comparision, I did hear the XBA30 the last time I step into a Sony outlet here though, I left the shop with a Sony XB90EX.

LOL just saw this DS smily_headphones1.gif. My suspicion they are fake like all the beats knockoffs. But if they are legit that is one heck of a price and would deserve some attention. I ended up returning the C5 as I decided to go high end and try the UE900 hoping they would satisfy my SRH-940 in an IEM desire (which they have with Spades, best IEM I have ever owned). But for a bassy IEM I really enjoyed the C5, more so than the FXZ100. The C5 had amazing deep bass with nice mids and treble, another basshead IEM done right in my opinion.

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
