I have the FXZ200s and the CKN70s but look where i am. haha These seem too good to pass up, esp. if you love bass and want something that you can listen to all day long without feeling like you are missing out on the rest of the sonic spectrum.

Ya I am gonna say it here.. I am pretty sure the DX210 is the one to go with. The Tenor I know many of you guys were interested in those..I can't possibly see how those are gonna be better than these. Might as well go for the CKN70s then. IF your more into your treble than your full sound and I say full sound over bass. Because the DX210 is more than just a bass phone.  Their armature one looks nice but I doubt they will have the bass end like these DX210s.

Lol, FXZ200 and CKN70? SO DO I. But i'm enjoying my bass out of XB90EX, i think even the highs are pretty nice, not ultra detailed, HD like the CKN70s nor the FXD80s, but smooth and SUFFICIENT.

In many ways the cheaper DX210 is superior to the XB90 in sound.. Not only better technically but overall sound is much more versatile.. The XB90s are a blast to listen to but they do not have the versatility or the detail level of the DX210.

 

Must resist, must resist, must resist,

..... oh well, failed again.

yeppp, i am gonna revise my write-up of them this week and post it here. It should be up by the end of the week. They are in essence a mix of the FXZ200s and the CKN70s with all of their best traits, nuff said. ksc75smile.gif

OMG! A cross between high end JVC and AT? Sounds like my next pair of IEMs.

Welp they ain't that cheap though, it's like $130 something at its lowest but normally go for like $180 so...... just to kill some of that hype. biggrin.gif

I looked up the price right when I saw your post. I plan on getting some higher end IEMs at some point anyway and right now I'm thinking either FXZ200s or CKS1000s. But if the bass edition GR07s are like those types of sounds put together then I'm definitely on board.

Looks like I'm the only one eager to go for the DX200 eek.gif

Well, somebody's got to take one for the team.

With the multiplication of FOTMs, I have to give some hype to the Astrotec AM-800. You can get them on Ebay for $50 shipped, and I think they beat the VSONIC GR06 and VC02, the two CKN phones from Audio-Technica, and many others up to $100-150. If you don't mind the shallow fit and modest isolation (personally, I think it's not bad if one isn't totally sealed off from one's surroundings - the only situation in which I've chosen something with more isolation for that reason is at night next to a snoring wife), it has pretty much everything: it's airy and spacious without being distant, full without being bloated, fast without being thin, detailed without being overly analytical... one might underestimate it at first because it has such an instantly likeable signature, a typical fun phone, but as one keeps listening, one realises that it has so much more to offer. It doesn't have wow effects like the laser sharp imaging and detail of the DBA-02 or the neutral but natural clarity of the GR07, but I think it's more of an all-rounder than either of those (EDIT: OK, the GR07 is an all-rounder, but not as "fun"). For the last few weeks I've used if for all sorts of music - rock, metal, jazz, classical, Middle Eastern; acoustic and electric; instrumental and vocal. It renders every one of those in a satisfying way. I think the AT phones often seem more detailed than they really are because of that treble sparkle; they give an instant suggestion of detail that they don't live up to, in my experience. Some people like their unnatural signature, but if you value the sound of real instruments, whether acoustic or electric (this doesn't apply to synthetic sounds, I guess) but want more fun than an analytical phone, this is practically a must for $50. Oh, it looks and feels really nice too. The cable has some memory and tangle, but less than the CKNs and not much microphonics (and can be worn up or down with equal comfort).

I've always loved a more realistic sound than an unnatural one, but I will say the CKN70s are the first headphones that have made me like that little high end sparkle. They still can't compete with JBL speakers which to me sound more realistic than anything I've ever heard. The emotion comes through so well and it sounds so real. These IEMs sound like they have that in common with JBL, so for $50 I just might have to pick these up.

That natural quality may have something to do with the wooden component.
