Just got these in today. Way more comfortable than the EX1000's but definitely not the same sound sig. These are bassy but not like the CKS77's. The bass on these are deep but doesn't have the impact like the S77's do. Probably need lots of burn to get the ideal sound. So far the stage is huge and orchestra music sounds really good. Threw some dub on and I don't get the same impact as I did with the S77's. Pretty though.
