^ can't you just re-cable those FXZ100 of yours??? I don't got the skittles for it but it shouldn't be THAT difficult right???

I'm in the same boat!

It will cost me nearly £30 to buy them on ebay from beachaudio. I'm in UK.

For that I might as well pay a bit extra and get Zero Audio or Corecool V2.

Sorry but those ATH are only cheap for the US buyers, not anyone else.

I just had a thought..These drivers are bigger on the COR150. They look like 12.5mm or 13mm drivers.. Which got me thinking. Something smells kinda fishy here.

 

I know manufacturers like to reuse stuff they have a stock pile of.. These simply sound too good and also kinda sounds familiar to me. They don't sound like the CKS earphones.. These sound like CKM earphones. CKM500 to be exact. Similar in tonality. Hmmm.. Could these be CKM500s in disguise?

I was thinking of doing that, but would it be feasible with most earphones?  thank you for a great suggestion, though. However,while I may be able to do that, but at the moment I will leave it as it is because I have cravings for the hypetrain that is present at this moment, lol. The Carbo bass and most likely a remade Radius TWF12K that has been made recently! http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%83%A9%E3%83%87%E3%82%A3%E3%82%A6%E3%82%B9-%E3%83%80%E3%82%A4%E3%83%8A%E3%83%9F%E3%83%83%E3%82%AF%E5%AF%86%E9%96%89%E5%9E%8B%E3%82%AB%E3%83%8A%E3%83%AB%E3%82%A4%E3%83%A4%E3%83%9B%E3%83%B3-radius-HP-TWF12-HP-TWF12K/dp/B00AXHALPO they look awesome, but cheaply built though. The TWF11K had mixed reviews, but hopefully the TWF12K would be a revision of the 11, even though the 21 was the actual revised 11. I feel like taking a risk on these, and mochill's discovery. Most of my dollars will have to be acquainted with my Japanese friends whether they like it or not : (.

After some A/Bing against my CKM500. The driver is within the same family. Could be the same driver. The real difference would be in the housing/material. The more expensive CKM500 uses aluminum and has the details to go along with it. The COR150 uses plastic and so that is where the difference really is. But tonality of the 2 phones are similar. Dynamics as well..I threw on some wide bore Auveo tips and this seems to open up the sound more so.

 

Will see how they turn out in the morning.. So far I am impressed with the quality I am hearing from these 2.. Are they absolute must haves? No not really. But it is amazing to me what you can get for sound for less than a $20 spot now a days..Who don't love a cheapo that sounds great.

OK, gonna bite again... Haven't been disappointed with the AT iem's I've gotten, cheap enough biggrin.gif

How are the COR150s compared to the FX40s?

I like the ear guides. I can use that on any one of my other Iems. FXZs  MP8320. Lol. Then you get a great cheapo bud with em too.

Let me burn them in over night as I got them later this afternoon.. All AT phones I owned get better with burn in and I suspect both these earphones have no factory burn in so I will be better able to tell how they are gonna be after some music blastin..

post #9581 of 32864

Hey moochill after burn in you still think the Corecool V2 have more bass than the fxz200?  Thinking about maybe hopping back into the IEM game and if these have the same or more bass than the fxz's, and overall sound even at least, I may consider these.

SO I just ordered the TT isurus, and there are even better ones than those? :( dangit

I heard the ASG-2 again today, and it's king in the IEM universal in my opinion (with the CKS1000 a close second). But with some things coming down the pike for the ASG-2 (that I can't talk about right now), it will be even more of a value along with being the great sound IEM it is.

 

Anyway, I have my custom AS-2, my custom V6, the CKS100, and the T-Peos H-200 (which is opening up beautifully as a neutral hybrid). I think I'm going to sell the CKN70 and CKN50. I've probably keep the BA200, but sell the TDK IE800. I will buy the SZ2000, and I should be set in this hobby for a good long while. Shure shouldn't look at me anymore. How dare they offer a $1K earphone when there's so much top-tier sounding earphones for under $600 (customs too) out here? The AS-2 is just blowing my mind right now. Happy listening!

 

Hi-curious about these ASG-2 universals, the link has them at $598 as someone pointed out. As you have these and the custom version, my question is: does it pay to spend $600 for a universal? Sure, many customs are considerably more, but, once your up in this rarified range, is the sq of the ASG-2 close enough to customs to make it worth while? Seems your on the way, may as well save some pennies and go for it, already, but if they're really close to the $1000 or so babies, maybe not.

I will have too get into this deeper later, but yes, this $600 IEM sounds just as good as any top tier universals and some top tier customs. Of course some would argue that a custom is best since it's designed to the specific shape of your ear inside and out. But the ASG-2 comes so close to the average shape of the ear in the way it was designed, and the best thing about the ASG-2 is that as a universal it is way easier to sell (can't do that this with this custom version if I didn't like the signature), and it's it's built to be upgradable fairly easy. That makes the ASG-2 quite worth it in my book. Of course, it sounds fantastic to my ears.

The corecool v2 is better then the fxz200 with out burn in , trust me the mids just blow the fxz200 out of the want and the airiness to the sound with a beautiful natural tonality smily_headphones1.gif , to me the bass digs deeper and impact is more , treble is realistic also and consider there price you should be a happy camper smily_headphones1.gif.
