That's exactly what I was thinking.

Being in Canada, it probably wouldn't make sense for me to get into any U.S. kinky group stuff. But I might see if my neighbor Nick N is interested in a twosome - he's always on the lookout for a good cheaper discovery...

I see the discovery thread blew up.  All we needed was Ds to have a listen to these things.  I might be in for the group buy also so I can get myself one of the different models.  I have a Tenso account and once it arrives into customs, I usually get it in my hands the next day.

This might be too early, but i am gonna ask the million dollar question now. Are these ZACBs as significant of a discovery as the MH1Cs Ds??? If so, then you're gonna have to order everyone to get a set as well. haha

 

It might not be true for others, but for me those MH1Cs for ~$20 showed me the light regarding what a highly refined bass emphasized iem is all about. It has changed how i view other budget-fi iems in terms of price to performance ratio that's for sure.

T-ara not sucking...well wouldn't be the first time. Remember the first album?

 

Oh might actually sell these CKN70s for future savings so yeah you must be psychic....

Not a regular here, but I saw your mention of these while browsing the thread. I've been looking for a decent, reasonably-priced IEM with durable, replaceable cables (cats). Bought a pair of these on Taobao (I live as an expat in China) for RMB292, a bit less than $50. Some shops list the retail as RMB 990, or ~$150, while the last one lists it as RMB 396, ~$65. It's hard to tell if the low price reflects the newness of the product (introductory discount for product visibility) or the Kohl's mentality of putting everything on a big sale at all times so you think you're getting a better deal than you really are.

 

Typically, they should arrive within 3-4 days. If I remember when they arrive, I might post a mini-review here.

DS can you please make a quick comparison of the mids of carbo basso and xba-3 when you have a chance. Thanks

post #9164 of 32863

Hi guys, just received my CKN70 and just found something is off when I was changing the tips. From what I see on the product page, I can see 3 small pin size hole on the bore but it seems that what I see on my pair is kind of a piece of white mesh instead. Any idea if there's anything fishy about my pair?

 

Would appreciate some feedbacks from owners here. Thanks in advance.confused_face_2.gif

 Do I feel these are a significant of a find as the MH1C?  Yes but in a different level..These are more refined over the MH1C. You can say the sound tuning is of a similar caliber but these sound more musical to me and more natural to me. The balance is more correct. Sound is more spacious to my ears. These improve upon the MH1C from the sound to the ergonomics. These are actually very sexy looking in person..They look every bit the modern style earphone. I would even say they look better than most earphones I own and don't stick out a whole lot.. They look great feel great and ultimately sound great..Hearing these things if I would have heard them and the asking price was $150 I would have seriously thought about buying them. I am not gonna deny it. These sound unnaturally great for the price. The only other earphone that comes close to the price for sound quality level would be the CKN70 but those do have peakiness in the upper regions these earphones do not have.

 

I also noticed..Tonality on my tunes I was listening to last night is fantastic. Bass guitar notes has clear distinction vs synthetic bass notes having a different sound to them all together..Accessory sounds. Be it the symbol or the back ground singers or the natural reverb in instruments has a high level of distinction. It has clarity and detail and refinement that is unheard of at this price level while hitting them bass notes full on. The CKN70 has more perceived detail but these have a really great mix of that detail while being full and sound more effortless over the CKN70. I love my CKN70 but man did these things surprise me.

 

The mids on these things are very well done. Not recessed or forward the positioning is spot on and does sound more fuller over the XBA-3s.. I will do some more comparisons once I get some burn in time but I think for the asking price for the guys that want a great earphone to add to their arsenal of earphones.. These should not be missed.. I have heard nothing like these at this price level.
