Smart man. I think you did well. Something different

HA-M750? They are fully over ears for me but for big ears might be semi on ears. Take a look at how they look might be what your looking for.

Wait for JVCs release of their 50mm full size Carbon Nanotube Bass Cannons, i mean cans this years, i sense it coming real soon. very_evil_smiley.gif This is all speculation though, but i would be really surprised if they don't try to out do what ATH has already released so far this year.

@Ds

need you to A/B between these CKN 70s and those FXZ200s of yours now!!! You meant superior to ALL "micro drivers" including these JVC FXZ frankenblots as well??? eek.gif But these JVC 3X dynamics seems like different animals though, *grasping for straws*. biggrin.gif

Sound signatures on both earphones are very different. The FXZ200 does not have your traditional earphone type sound so we are talking about apples and oranges here. I have both of them on my belkin splitter using my Meridian Explorer.. Both excel in the type of sound they are going for. The FXZ200 more closer to full size headphones than in ears.. More fuller in sound and for guys that enjoy their bass. These earphones are what an audiophile basshead should go for.. I think you are going to enjoy these FXZ200 quite a bit SF. So you did good

 

In comparison to the CKN70s. These have more treble energy over the FXZ earphones and the overall sound is not as forward as the FXZ earphones...Both are balanced exceptionally well but sound signature wise both are completely different.. Obviously bass genres are the strong suit of the FXZs but it does very will just about all genres of music. The CKN70 I think has the upper hand in vocal performance. The sweetness of sound on these earphones makes vocals stand out and will give you goose bumps.  The FXZ200 will raise your hair on the back of you head with its full frontal Kelton sub woofer performance and a deep lush mid range ..

 

Guys that want their micro and timbre detail with a sweet mid range for them vocals will enjoy the CKN70s.  Guys that want their treble more laid back with a smooth, full deep mid range with a fully loaded sub woofer in their music. FXZ200 is more than just an earphone it is an experience..

 

The sound signatures are so different on both I have to get used to how one sounds over the other when A/Bing..

Ya you gotta try watching your favorite movie using the FXZ200. Your in for a very nice treat..It should be called THX200. Lol.

 

Your absolutely right. The type of sound both goes for are so different they actually compliment each other more than you would think.

No love to the FXZ100, huh?

haha, i still haven't tried my beloved S500s with movies yet, cuz haven't watched many movies of late due to all this audio madness. But looks like i got no choice but to try these THX WOOFERS out. Man what an experience that is gonna be. L3000.gif

 

Yeppp, both of these could be potential END ALLS if only minor things are fixed, such as the lackluster cable of the CKN 70s and the straight 3.5mm jack of the FXZ200s. Nothing is perfect..........................But it seems like it was done intentionally to TROLL U$$$$s. haha

Interesting. Now we have some competition between the 2 earphones. A/Bing against the FXZ100. The CKN70 actually wins right out the bat with better clarity across the spectrum. Detail in the music is clearly heard more so on the CKN70 over the FXZ100. Just as I suspected the sub bass levels are very similar on these 2. The greater treble energy on the CKN70 makes timbre detail stand out more so than the FXZ100. I want to say the FXZ100 sound reserved in comparison.

 

I never realized the FXZ100 actually has a slight v shape balance. In comparison the mids on the CKN70 are more forward and actually has the better balance..I don't think the CKN70s out do the FXZ200s I think it will be more of a preference in sound signature but the FXZ100?..Surprising but I think they have been out done here..

 

The FXZ100 definitely has the softer sound, which some guys might actually prefer.. You know what is funny. The CKN70 is the one that sounds like they have the 3 drivers.

Make that two, I am the guy with the grey shirt. I skipped the ckn50s, plunged for the fxz100s, walked alongside eric and witnessed himself getting inhibited by the pole. Thus I kick the pole with him because his inhibition made me also realize how good the ckn70s are.

Does this mean that the ckn70s have that thx feeling as the fxz100s do? How is the mid-bass between the two?

But and I say but. I have the FXZ100s in my ears. They do have a non fatiguing easier listen. I don't think the CKN70 has an issue with being too forward in the details as the smooth cohesive sound counters the greater treble energy of the CKN70..I am very surprised by this particular A/B here because I know the CKN70 was going to be above it's cost in sound performance but this particular A/B just proved it for me. I don't think the FXZ100 is any less enjoyable. In fact these sound as good as I ever heard them. Especially on my ME DAC..

 

The CKN70 however is turning out to be much better than I thought. The clear difference in the 2.. The highs and mids of the FXZ100 is less forward in the mix while having roughly the same amount of bass presence. The CKN70s have the more forward highs and mids with the same amount of bass..A better mix of highs mids and bass.

 

This sound balancing is ATs new house sound.

My next purchase is definitely between the FXZ200 and the CKN70 but I'm not sure which to go for. I'm looking for a true upgrade from my s500's. I like my bass but I don't want it to overshadow the highs and mids either. I like the bass on the s500's with stock pads, I wouldn't want any less than this, maybe even more.
