This music is 40 years old, but it doesn't matter... it ALWAYS blows me away. Sounds spectacular on the DX210 Bassos. They are long tracks, but well worth the listen....

Play a mix of fast bassy music like trance, drum and bass, dubstep, hardcore... etc at about 80% volume.

Btw, my Zero Audio Tenores have arrived at Tenso! biggrin.gif

I now have confirmation that the estimated delivery date is the 24th (Tomorrow). I'll let you guys know what they're about as soon as I get them.

Good news. Something new from Audio-Technica:

  1. ATH-WS33X
  2. ATH-WS55X
  3. ATH-CKS55X

... and several more. Just see the official site.

 

ATH-WS33X BK
ATH-WS55X BK
ATH-WS55X BRD

 

Of course, it's not a discovery for me now, but I like the design so much and I think that this piece of news would be interesting in this thread.

Wow, those 55X's have 53mm drivers. Damn, can't believe these were announced just after I got my WS77's. I don't really like the design too much though.

Sorry Leo, I haven't tried comply tips on my 70's. I did go back and listen to them (still with 3590 tips) for a few hours last night to verify my impression of the absence of harshness. I cannot emphasize enough how excellent they sound now. The harshness is completely absent. The mids and highs are clear, airy and beautiful. At slightly above medium volume the bass was not painful and the whole sound signature was exceptional.

 

I particularly enjoyed some Vangelis tracks from Blade Runner as well as many other genres from classical to Hendrix. I'm not as skilled at describing sound characteristics as some other headfiers. The phrase "depth of field" kept coming to mind. All the instruments and vocals were beautifully clear and airy.

 

These tips transform the CKN70 IEMs into a shockingly improved listening experience. If the comply tips didn't tame them for you I would strongly suggest giving the Philips tips a try. The IEM itself is under $10 and comes with S,M and L tips. I found that the medium size fit me best.  ...will look forward to impressions from other folks.

Why are the CKN70s so highly regarded if the highs are "painfully bright"?  Is everyone replacing the tips to fix this problem?

I think the Nutman really likes his treble. CKN70, FX30, FX40 all have very bright treble.

I agree. I switched from the Philips back to the stock tips, and I like the stock tips even more. I don't find them harsh at all.

Some of us like the very harsh kind-of cold sounding highs. I remember there being some complaints about the highs on the 40s being excessively bright. I thought they sounded amazing and still do.

Mochill, what tips are you using on your Corecool v2? I want to buy some double flange tips, but I'm not sure if they'll fit on the 385. I get them tomorrow but because the housing is almost identical I thought you could rough estimate me the nozzle size.
