The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 538

post #8056 of 25978
Thread Starter 

So I am listening to my MX2 as I type and it now has more fullness to the lower registers than I heard them last night..So the sound changes with more and more use. It has been playing and burning in my CKN70s this whole time.. Does it blow away my fire phoenix? No. I think the sound is technically superior now but at the same time I don't feel the sound is 100% done yet. I am thinking these need a good 100 hours before they show the full extent of their sound so I am just letting it play music.. Will see where this ends up.

It's no secret I'm digging them CKN70 currently and I prefer them slightly more than both my FXZ100 and 200 but they are by no means the end all do all iems  ...and I'm moving on to the Vsonic GR07 Bass,    ...the search continues !

 

....isn't that what this thread's all about ??? confused.gif

 

PS:   ...the AD900X are still the king on top my heaps of audio phones currently, unless I get to hear a well burned AD2000X or if the Nutman sez something else's better, then I get all curious and excited to hear it as well.

 

 

Hello Ghostfit. Hmmm? It is a bit harsh - the treble. But I didn't comment on it because I seem to play at a volume that doesn't bother me or get int he way of me enjoying the sound. Now if it was EX1000 or FX700 levels of treble harshness I would have commented, but it's not. The CKS1000's treble is even smoother (just missing that harsh threshold).

Hmmmm that's is interesting,  good to know that fire phoenix still stacks up against these big bullies.biggrin.gif But it seem once the MX2 finishes cooking it might be a completely different story. Good to know they are coming along nicely. beerchug.gif

The FX3X is a complete upgrade to the FX101s, which sounds fantastic for a "bass" iem. The closest you can get to the CKN70s i assume is the JVC FXD80, but again i have never heard it so...............

@ Mackem

 

BUT........ the head-fier that sold his CKN70s to me wrote this in our discussion: (hope he is cool with me posting this)

 

"I don't think the sibilance is ever going to go away on the ckn70's.. That's the reason I sold them.. It's just far too present at higher levels to disappear.. And I saw a few others say it's still there after a while so I have no qualms with giving up early on them.. This is my description of the fxd80s - impactful bass slightly recessed mids and present highs that are on the right side of bright.. They have a huge sound stage and imaging on them is ridiculous.. They aren't a full sound though so if you need a full sound they won't fit that bill.. I eventually sold them because I don't like recessed mids and I do like some fullness to my sound"

 

I thought i was over the FXD80 train but after reading what he said it made me put them back on my wishlist. haha DAMN IT!!!

I was going to order the FX3Xs originally. Probably going to go for them now. In the mean time I need to find a European buyer for my CKN70s

You should see if someone will recable them for you. If you like the sound... look for a DIY guy. Or try to do it yourself on a cheaper set first. biggrin.gif

Well i am not sure what you are looking for in a iem, but for me my FX3Xs is great for the gym/ biking/ so it's just fun but not for serious listening. Their highs have a nice lil' sparkle to them with pretty good mids and great bass/ sub bass rumble. But i imagine the FXD80s are a lot better if you want a set for serious listening. People wrote that they also have great bass quantity and quality as well as extended highs, and the only negative is the somewhat recessed mids??? Even if this was the case, i am sure the mids on them are better than that of the FX3X since they are a "bass" iem afterall.

 

This head-fer is selling his set for a pretty good price, so you might want to ask if he wants to do a trade/ $$$ or something. But it is up to you.

Good luck man!!!

Thanks for the great price meng. beerchug.gif

 

But buying from ebay has a higher chance of fakes esp. with sellers from China. Amazon has these FX3Xs for ~$30 shipped which is a steal for their sound. I was tempted to get another new set until these CKN70s got into my dirty lil' hands. Though i feel kinda like a tool for advertising for beats, cuz the black and red look to them makes everyone think they are beats iems. LMAO The new colors of these FX3Xs sold exclusively in Jpn are much more professional looking. If i am getting another set i am getting those colors for sure, but then i have to do that Amazon jpn/ tenso thing, which opens the Pandora's Box. triportsad.gif

 

edit: WoW sweet all those Onkyo gear comes with detachable cables?!!!  ATH need to really implement this into their cans man, though it can be overlooked for their great sound but still non-detachable cables are so out of style these days esp. for portable headphones.
