Only the FX40 and FX101.  Both were too sibilant for me.

These things sound fantastic! There is no way this sound comes from a sub $50 earphone. Lol!

Well to say I am pleasantly surprised is an understatement..These things have a sound that is no where near what the cost of these things are..It is evident to me that these Audio Zero guys are very serious about audio..It is like they took the best of what AT, Sony, Panasonic, and JVC has done and are trying to outdo them..

 

Listening to them now. Now I understand why these are getting absolute rave on Amazon Japan..Because they deserve it. Gents. We have an earphone here that has some serious sound..These don't only compete with the likes of the CKN70 but I will go as far as to say these actually sound at similar level of the CKS1000.. For $45? Lol!

 

Oh man. It is musical but technical at the same time. It has lushness and transparency at the same time. It has a very nice sound stage, depth and utilizes all that space all at the same time!..Similar tuning to the newer AT sound but wow this was unexpected. These simply sound sublime. Tuned extremely well these things hit every note with depth and authority that is completely surprising. And this is out of the box.. I somehow had a feeling these was gonna be good but I had no idea..This one is definitely a discovery.  More to come. These seem to need Zero burn in. Lol.

 

I have them hooked up to my Audinst MX2 and the sound I am hearing is simply unreal. They sound so damn good!!!

What model is it exactly?

My frequent rider miles are starting to stack up from all my rides on the hype train, but I'm thinking about boarding again.

Audio Zero DX210 here I think should be able to compete very well with the CKS99. Imo they have out classed the CKS77, X3X, XB90 even. Now they aren't the bassiest but not lacking. It is very tastefully done. They don't quite best the CKS1000 but man they seem to get really close to why I like those so much. The sound is absolutely enjoyable. No harshness anywhere I can detect and they sound like this out of the box. These have a very full and engaging sound similar to the CKS series of phones by AT but has a sound to their own.. I like that it is similar yet unique.

 

I think we have a winner.!

I'm with you. The FX1X, FX101, and FX40 were too sibilant for me as well. With the XX series there was a wall of static where the cymbals should be (at least to my ears). Now the FX40 on the other hand calmed down after MASSIVE burn in and I can deal with it now, but it's still more harsh than the CKN70s. These CKN70s are the first headphones that are bright that I've actually liked. At first they were painful to my ears, but now, they sound magical.

I wasn't gonna buy these because I figured since I have the CKN70s there would be no need to. Now you've got me thinking about it. I know you're about to push me over the edge, I can feel it.

Unfortunately The other one belongs to me. Lol. You will have to order them. Some of you guy should get together and just have one guy order several to save on shipping from Tenso. Should shave off a few bucks for all involved me thinks.

You need to dust off your ELE and plug it into your computer. Next, plug your CKN70s into it. Finally, enjoy some of your favorite music in lossless. I never thought these would pair well since they are both bright, but oh boy was I surprised.

Different flavor but man is it a good one..Instrument separation and detail on the CKN70 is fantastic as you know but these have are more lush and fuller sounding..Like I said these compete very well with the CKN70 but for sheer lushness of sound. That is a tough one. These sound so good and has absolute control in all regions. I have taken an immediate like to them. I think for guys that enjoy ATs new sound will definitely like these earphones..
