Your right the sound stage of the CKS77 are unmatched. The FX3X does have a tighter sound over the CKS77 but I think it is due to the lesser stage on them.

Got the Fx40. Like them. WOuld consider the higher end offerings too. I am using custom ear molds that allow me to just plug an iem into them and voila. Since it makes the tip canal a bit longer than normal, I think that the highs are tamed a bit and the bass impact increased a bit. Makes for a nice balance with these.

So I popped the fx40s in my ears for the first time yesterday. For about 10 minutes.. I'm going to let these burn in. Although I do not believe is drastic change from physical burn in, well see how these do. For those 10 minutes, they were just bad. They definitely sounded like $15-20 IEMs. I've read about the change after long burn in. So I'm not going to touch these until 100 hours lol.

Try listening at lower volumes first

Nice! And with HD381 to compare with as well. Look forward to that!

 

 

I got my CX870 today. Certainly worth re-discovering these since they are now found at a nice price, $25 - $35 depending. The one without one of the odd volume controls as well. Big airy stage, nice bass right out of the box(detailed, fairly tight and low reaching), good treble sparkle and detail, and throw in nice mids as well. Signature is slanted towards the bass at this point. Problem is the stock tips seem to not be doing all they can for the SQ and they are slightly smaller than standard. Philips tips will work etc. but your standard 5mm tips won't stay on without some kind of spacers. They just come with tips and a cleaning tool. No case or clip or other accessories but not as much of a crime as when they charged closer $100 for these.

They're like a nice pair of very fitting designer's leather shoes, hurts like S**T the first time you wear them but after they're broken-in, they'll feel really good and you'll just want to wear them and go out ! biggrin.gif

Those are some conflicting specs for an IEM, especially if looking at lower cost offerings. CKM500 is warm with rumble bass; not all that clean. FXD80 is clean, good bass, but no rumble. How about full size cans?

I've just finished burning a pair of Vsonic GR02 and am enjoying them much, definately an improvement over the FX40 in all areas, I would rate them as a side grade to the CKM500, both have great sound but with different signatures (the CKS77 is more of a basshead phone)

The soundstage and forward mids of the GR02 are really astonishing, very musical, now I'm lusting over a pair of their flagship GR07 MkII.

 

The FXD80 are super clear to the point that they sound lean, they have a slight edge over the GR02 in clarity but the GR02 is slightly more balanced overall.

 

At less than 1/3 the price of the FXD80, I would recommend you to give them GR02 a listen.
