The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 592

post #8866 of 26434

So the treble driver is carbon nanotube and the bass driver is carbon diaphragm. Excellent! I already have a feeling this will be my premier headphone (blowing my A900X away - which I love). There will no need for me to buy the WS99. Brass with a silver cable. I definitely don't need to repurchase the FXZ200. I can be satisfied with my FXZ100 and the SZ200. I'm willing to be that the price drops down quickly from $350 and some change. This looks to be my dream headphone! I'm excited!

By the way, I don't care what the graphs say, the CKS1000 is the best sounding universal IEM I own right now. I have over 100 hours on it now, and the instrument separation and placement is just astonishing! It has great width and depth (back and forth) within the soundstage. The bass lives up to its name of "solid." Actually there's not too much or too little bass, it's just perfect and clean. Backing vocals are behind the lead vocals. I don't know if it's the driver they chose or this chamber system, but I have heard anything this good in a universal (especially a dynamic) accept for maybe the ASG-2. I'm still waiting to hear that again. And I still have love for my FXZ100 (it keeps getting better and better), but the CKS1000 still outpaces it. My advice would be to stop listening to those who comment on earphones/headphones just based on graphs, but who haven't actually heard the product. Sure, I will concede that a a FR can give a piece of the picture (sometimes), but it definitely can't give the whole picture until you've heard it yourself. Happy listening!

You have that WS99 that I still want to hear, waynes world, but I'm probably not going to buy it now that this double driver full-size cnt JVC headphone is coming out. I knew my JVC boys would could swinging back after AT started whupping their tails. lol

I'm just glad that there isn't going to be this huge hype over these things. Thank God. LOL! I think these things will be going into hype-r drive!

If you're really nice eric, I'll consider a trade biggrin.gif

 

Seriously, if they are any better than the 99's, they will be spectacular.

waynes world,

 

The CKS1000 is not universal standard for best sounding natural drums (displacing the GR07). Natural sounding, robust, three-dimensional, and full-sounding glorious drums and percussion instruments.

There, that's better! smile.gif  And yes, the GR07BE's are great, but the 1000's are simply more of everything of what you said above.

The FXZ200/100 are good (very good) with drums, but a bit streaky depending on the recording. The CKS1000 is consistent and never let's you down. The drums never become over-bloated.

JBL has gone through many phases like most companies. If you can tell us which JBL, that may help.
