Yeppp traded away my FXD70s as well, really mid/ treble centric with crazy tight lows. A bit too bass lite and analytically cold sounding for me taste. The CKN70s are for sure a upgrade to them. Much more versatile and easier to listen to esp. for longer periods of time.

^Then you better get ready for a longgggggg burn-in session cuz the treble is pretty bright/ peaky on the FXD70s. Took me forever to burn them in but it never got as smooth as my CKN70s. Just a heads up, their cable is wayyy better than the CKN70s thats for sure.

 

Say what???blink.gif............ what a nerd!!! tongue.gif

But, the treble on the fxd70's does indeed tame after countless hours. I know because for the longest while they were way to bright for me and I could only listen to them with foam tips to tame the treble. But now the treble is very nice.

That's good to hear but they were the iems that i burned in the most and used the least, and the treble was still a bit too bright/ sibilant for my taste. The CKN70s have responded MUCH better to burn-in and has opened up immensely.  Really diggin' them but it's just their sound siggy is nothing really THAT special and i love my FXZ200s a lot more.  The CKN70s are fun and easy to listen to that's for sure cuz of it's great balanced and detailed presentation.

I think I'm definitely going to buy the DX210s, now to get some headphones to accompany them.

Still can't believe you're having doubts about the S500s.

You don't know what you're missing lol

They are the best budget headphones out right now!

where you think i got the s500 from?

Ok, this is what I have received today, FiiO HS2 Headphone output switcher.
 

 

 

 
According to FiiO, HS2 was originally created for their agents only, to show their customers differences between different amps or amped and unamped signal ect, but due to the high interest they decide to sell it to end customers as well.
For now it is available only directly from FiiO, but in the future should be available from their dealers as well.
The device is small, very small, almost size of TicTac box.

 

It came in a tin box and FiiO were very nice to include 4 40cm. audio cables with it.
For the asking price asking price of 20$ shipped I didn't expect that.

 

It was pleasant surprise to see that HS2 is very nice build, the body is from aluminum, but is very light.
The knob is from aluminum too and is tight with nice "click" sound when you switch positions.
HS2 has 4 3.5mm inputs (or outputs) on the back side and on the front is one 3.5mm and one 6.3mm output/input and the signal is split between the front jacks.
 
Usually you cannot connect two or more sources together, as one output could be damaged by the other, but with HS2 you can safely plug up to 4 sources together.
Of course you can compare not only sources, but headphones and cables as well.
The , which is very reasonable IMO.
 
I've been looking for such a device and I'm very happy that FiiO decide to make one available.
 
How to order (Click to show)

From FiiO Facebook page:

FiiO Headphone signal Switcher Open to retail now .

Lots of fans asked us to sell the HS2, now we are collecting the order from our sales agents, but it takes time to handle the pre order. so we decide to sell to end customer directly.

Anyone wants to buy our HS2, please send $20 to our paypal A/C pay@fiio.com.cn. and them send the paypal reception to market5@fiio.com.cn with detail address and your phone number which is required by the forwarder, the HS2 will be delivered by Hong Kong Post Office and take about 20 days to arrives.

Thanks in Advance.

 

 

let comparing begin biggrin.gif

you could use the out's as in's and the in's as out's...to A/B different headphones.  which is a much more useful function than comparing sources....imo.
