Not too many headphones have lushness depth and sweetness to the sounds all in one and that is the way I would describe the unbelievable mids on these headphones. The crazy thing is I don't know if this is the final sound on these. I remember the HTF600 needing at least 100 hours for their full sound to come out. I expect these to do the same. I am very encouraged in the direction they are heading. Very encouraged.

How do they sound for movies and gaming?

CKX5 has same sound signature as ckn70. Only differences are less mid bass and micodetails than ckn70. bass is also bit slower on ckx5. But they are realy small differences. CKX5 is exellent sport iem. There are CKX7 and 9, but i guess that they have more bass impact. because of bigger drivers and not so bright highs.

Dsnuts: Have you heard any top-tier models to compare the Panasonics to? Just curious! Say for example the Mad Dogs, HiFiMan planars, or even LCD-2 etc.
Not doubting your claim that they are amazing but you made the rather bold claim that can stack up to a lot more pricier headphones :P

Lets be realistic here. The 480s are not a $500 plus level gear. They are $82 bucks after all. Most of my headphones are double triple the cost of these and these hold their own easily against all of them including the X1s. Which is a big surprise to me. Bass wise these hang with the best of them. The Panasonics represent a new benchmark for under $100 phones. Closed phones really don't get too much better.. Sure paying $1000 plus gets you a much higher end sound over these but on the go I doubt your gonna be wearing your TH900s and LCD3s. These are made for all i devices by the way so very functional with your iphones.

 

These have a place in my collection. With old man Winter about to throw down the snow and cold. These will make perfect Winter headies. Why walk around with your ears exposed. Might as well be surrounded by your music and keep them delicate ears toasty while being completely surrounded by your favorite tunes..I couldn't think of a better set of headphones to do this with.

 

@Cameron will test out soon..

You know I took a quick listen to the Gratitudes that is burning next to the 480s and I can understand the AT sound relation here. The upper mid range has some emphasis high lighting vocals similar to what AT does for their sound..I like the stage on these earphones.. The low end fills out nicely as well..The sound is enjoyable. I was contemplating getting the MA600s but now that I have these cheaper Gratitudes I think I will skip on them. Similar type of sound..The Gratitudes seems to have the better staging however which is a win. These will do well for a change up against my S2s MA750s and CKS1Ks.

Ya I owned them when they first came out..Gave them to a good buddy of mine for his birthday. He loves em. UE6000 was my favorite movie cans. Music they sound great as well. Those are a great buy when they are on sale. I think even at full retail they are worth it.

I just got a pair the other day and are really enjoying them. Now I can't stop thinking that I should have put my money on the 480s instead.......

Denon AH-D320RD Urban Raver On-Ear Headphones (Red)

Me with my bargains again...anyone know these? Really cheap on NewEgg ($219 list, for $84). If it sounds any good, could make a nice holiday gift for my Beats obsessed daughter...(they're designed to appeal the same way looks wise)

You enjoy them but still can't stop thinking about others. Why?

I like the comfort better on the UE6000s it is a bit deeper in the cups, but sound wise. I have to give it up to the Panasonics. Sound signature when isolation is turned off on the UE6000 is similar to the Panas but I want to say the UEs lack the deep full bold mids of the Panas. Treble is has a touch more shimmer on the Panas and the bass end has better control easily over the UE6000s. The UE6000 with isolation mode on is a kick in the pants for bass but ends up making them V shape in sound.  Staging is similar on both from memory but depth wise it don't get too much better than the 480s.

 

Easy, sell off them UE6000s or gift them to a good friend like I did and grab yourself some sexy new Panasonics. Looks wise I like how understated the Panasonics are. They won't attract too much attention. The Silvers might though. I did notice the silver color sells for a bit more I have no idea why maybe cost more for silver color paint?

A classic case...Audiophilia Nervosa. Tsk Tsk, if untreated, results in severe financial deficiency.
