^ Sf that's when we swoop in quickly and scoop up all the stray CKS1000 before they realize what they have done.... perfect tactical precision...

What exactly is "imagery" or "imaging"? People say the AD900X aren't very good at it, but I don't know if I agree. I assumed it was how good of a picture the headphones can create in your head, but I have no problem doing that with these headphones. So I'm not sure if my definition is correct. I'll be posting my impressions and a semi-lengthy review in the near future if anyone is interested.

Those M200s look good. However, the ear hook things just don't agree with my ears / glasses unfortunately. So many choices to consider for my next upgrade; ATH-CKS1000, Onkyo IE-HD300, Philips Fidelio S2 or wait for Carbo Doppio?

Do you like a lot of bass, if so take the CKS1k, if not HF300.

Depends what you mean by a lot. I'm not sure if the Carbo Basso is considered as having a lot of bass but I find the bass levels to be fine but I am looking for an improvement in the overall sound.

I think it's just how accurately the headphone allows you to place/see instruments around you when listening to a track. Since the AD900X were my first open pair of headphones, I was so blown away by the way they made my music sounded that I didn't realize their shortcomings at first. I hadn't had the opportunity to try a lot of high quality headphones at the time so I didn't have much to compare it to. But then after 7 months of listening to it, getting the WS99 and CKS1000, and also also hearing some other headphones from friends, I began to realize I had a hard time pinpointing the placement of instruments with the AD900X in comparison. It was almost like seeing without my glasses/contacts on; I generally could see where things were but I couldn't get a very clear picture. I felt like even the WS99 gave me a clearer picture of my music, so now I'm itching for an upgrade after reading a_recording's review about the AD1000X's improvements in imaging. Decided I might as well go for broke with the AD2000X, just waiting for the amazon.jp prices to drop!

There's also their size, density, occasionally gravity, interaction with the soundstage, eg level-ness to the eye/ear, weight, energy, definition, often depth bias, blah blah blah. These all begin to tie into the overall sound to varying degrees, forming an overall sonic image IMO. It's fun stuff lol.

So DannyBai, have you heard the TDK BA200? If so, how does the M200 compare to that dual driver, or the TDK IE800? Thanks.

X1  249.00

KEF  M200   200.00  M400 299.00

S2   150.00

CKS1000  250.00

X3 200.00  and i would add:

ifi usb power supply 199.00

any i left out??  not to mention DSnuts new favorite Audio-gd source gear

 

who needs to eat when the above audio gear is now available???

 

of course, in the world of high end audio, these are all relative "bargains" being under 1K and of oourse portable.

Wonder what bass quantity is like on the cks1000 compared to the sonys... I do know the cks delivers better quality bass, but what about kick and rumble?

Btw, it seems that Vsonic is really aiming for total market domination. They'll be releasing their first portable headphones in September (supposedly around $30) followed by circumaural headphones in October (supposedly less than $160). And also they've officially started development on their own DAP and the CEO claims they have hired first-class designers to work on it. I'm pretty excited given the price to performance ratio all vsonic products have
