I would definitely get them. The S500s definitely sound more inside your head, the CKN70s are more open. I just feel like I'm in a room with the S500s as opposed to in the music with the CKN70s.

The first thing you notice about the CKN70s are the soundstage. Even compared to the S500 they sound HUGE. These phones are excellent for classical and live type stuff. The second thing is the way the mids are presented. Guitars in the CKN70s are leaps and bounds above the S500, which is a definite plus for me because I love metal and alternative. The third thing I noticed were the amount of details or sonic abilities. The CKN70 takes the win with this one as well. I thought I could hear everything with the S500s, boy was I wrong! Background vocals are a little more forward in the presentation as well. The CKN70s have more bass and it's done in a better way. The bass is completely separate from the mids and highs. It doesn't affect them AT ALL.

 

The main thing the S500s have over the CKN70s are the fact that they are headphones and not earphones. Surprisingly enough though, the stage is much more narrow. Which has always been the complaint with these headphones anyway. The S500s also have a more laid back and comfy sound signature. They are perfect for laying down and just escaping in the music when you want to relax.

 

Deciding which one I like better is very tough because of one aspect: The guitars are WAY too good in the CKN70s. It makes the them sound kind of boring in the S500s. I'm still having mixed feelings, but I might stick with the S500s as my favorite.


This post alone was enough to make me finally pull the trigger on the S500s.  I have had the S400s for quite some time now and they sound really great but I am hoping that the S500s are just that much better in sound.  Well... here goes nothing.

Glad I was able to help, they are one of a kind.

When I bought S400, I decided on it because I've read that it is a more musical and balanced headphone that S500.

S500 supposed to be better for movies.

Looking forward to the impressions and comparisons!

Hmmm. ckn70 or vsonic vc02...... or both!
post #7824 of 32858

The CKN70's are definitely an upgrade to the VC02 overall, but I really love the signature of the VC02. Buy both and be happy!

I don't even wanna take the 40's off. 

 

Why did I even buy the 70's?

Because it is 3x cheaper than the 40s! I thought that was obvious! (Joke)

This isn't good...

 

I thought the CKN70's would put up a fight but I'm not sure if that is going to happen.

 

WTF?

How many hours of burn in do you have with the CKN70's? It might be a case where they come into their own after more burn in compared to the xba40's. Then again, the xba40's are flagship models with 4 ba drivers costing 3x more than the CKN70's, so it probably isn't all that surprising.

NOt much at all. But I don't know how much more burn can help. The difference is night and day. Maybe 40's are my kind of sound?
