They have enough volume straight out but the sound expands even more so using an amp connected to them.

Ya it is amazing for the price. Im planning on building a cmoybb or objective2 to complement the dac once I decide which Iem to buy.

Which iems sounded the best with the hifidiyme?

CKS1000 but FXZ200 comes real close.  The FXZ200 need amplification but once it is amplified it pulls ahead of the CKS1000. The CKN50 sounds bad monkey on them too.

Not sure how much you all feel about Etymotic Research products, but I have come across a model from them for $25 shipped on amazon.
 
That I've seen there is not much discussion about them, or even a properly rated review. I think that that is a crying shame, because despite the name "ety kids" these sound better than my "grown up" ER6i IEMs, and for 25 bucks I think that they deserve for people to give em a chance.

FAD Heaven IV and FXZ200 sound fantastic without any amplification.

But JVC HA-RX900 (a full size headphone) gets upgraded into the stratosphere (also without any amplification).

 

For a 50$ headphone to outperform 200-300$ IEMs is not a small task...

There was a present on my doorstep after work last night. The Somic efi82mt's got here from China! Quick too. It took only 9 days. I didn't have much time to play around with them, but my initial thoughts (with stock pads) was tbat they have a pretty small soundstage and don't have the greatest instrument separation.

I'll be burning them in and swapping pads soon, so I will update in a bit. All comparisons are made vs. my 250 ohm dt880's.

APB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

Amazon Japan just released the CKN70s! I say again. Amazon Japan just released The CKN70!

 

You bet I got the silvers.!

Yeah, me friend in Japan asked me about the ckn70 several hours ago. He should be auditioning it tomorrow or over the weekend. I'm not looking for new iems now but if it's a bang for buck I might have him send me a pair.

Oh yea based on my evaluations of the CKN50..Based on the other great AT phones that came out recently.. These CKN70s are gonna be a special earphone.

post #7046 of 26204

+1. CKN70's should be really special.

post #7047 of 26204

Well, I guess we'll find out soon. Anyway, for circa 80 bucks if done right they can be real winners

See most guys have no idea how great these are gonna be. I am just gonna call it. These will punch way above their price in sound. Just a haunch. I just hope they threw in a decent cord this time.  The blues was my 2nd choice those look real nice too. But silvers. I needs them CKN70s in silver.

Crossing fingers on the ckn70's!
