That would be amazing.

I do wish that I had the funds to get the CKS1000, sadly I'm not minted like lots of other audiophiles here. frown.gif

Might have to settle for the Carbo Basso as a cheaper but close alternative to the CKS1000.

Yeah, well I got my 1k's for a pretty good price, so that made it more feasible for me. But yes, I suspect that those Basso's might very well do the trick nicely :)

Thanks Ds... I now use the DX210 for outdoors and it's awesome. But for serious listening, I still go back to the XBA 3 for a more immersive experience; tho I sometimes skip on some songs (i.e. most songs by Oasis) that do sound quite strident on the Sony's.

 

On a side topic: how would you compare the DX210 to the CKS77? I'm seeing heaps of good deals on the CKS77 - $45 with free shipping!

The DX210 is a superior phone over the CKS77. My well used CKS77s sound good but they have big mid bass and not the tightest sound that I am more used to on the DX210 or my CKS1000s.. Hence the new version that just came out...The CKS77X might be a good one to check out. Might have to try them out for myself. I wouldn't be surprised if the CKS77X is better than the CKS99. 

 

@Geko. I think the DX210 will surprise you with their complete sound. Wait for Wayne to get them and I am sure he will be able to tell you how close they are. Especially when amped.. I really can't think of another phone around their price range that does one better. I like the CKN70s for their sound but the DX210 is the better value for certain.

I really gotta stop lurking in this thread. I just about whipped out the plastic to get the CKS1000. Sounds exactly like what I'm looking for: a musical IEM with great soundstage and doesn't need an amp to sound good... the perfect upgrade to a Yamaha EPH100 maybe?

Great call on the CKS1000..They do need a good 200 hours of burn in. They sound a bit off from open box but no worries once they whip into shape you will know why I consider them top stuff..

post #9742 of 32858
I now have over 50hrs burn-in on these CarboBasso's and they seemed to have opened up a bit more. It no longer sounds dark to me; not sure if its because of the break-in, the Philips 3580 wide bore tips, or my ear/brain has adjusted to its sound signature... But either way this is the best sounding IEM I've tried/owned! I will even go as far as concluding that this sounds better than my CKN70 and XBA3!

I'm currently playing my entire Def Leppard collection and all I can say is the band never sounded this GOOD! One word to describe it: AWESOMETACULAR!.

Awesome! And yes, they do sound great un-amped. I use them straight off of my rockboxed clip zip with zero EQ, and they sound amazing.

I got a couple of days of burn in now so I think I can make some comparisons.  The COR150's actually sound really good.  These seem to benefit with wide-bore tips.  The bass is a little boomy but nothing crazy.  It's actually quite nice for cheap phones.  Vocals are not recessed or forward.  Sounds about right on.  Treble gets a little peaky at times but nothing like the CKN70's.  Definitely not a refined phone by any means but it's an excellent sound none the less.  The CLR100's sound better to me with stock tips or narrow-bore tips.  This brings the bass more up front.  Speaking of bass, the bass on these are tighter and not as boomy.  It's more polite and blends better with the rest of the music.  Vocals pretty much sound about the same as the COR150's.  Both have this down very well.  Treble is pretty close too.  The main difference is the bass.  Both are absolutely fantastic sounding and can't go wrong with either.

I was commenting on the 1k's and how great they sound unamped.

 

You thought I meant those carbo basso's? Eww. Yuck. No way!  Just kidding...
