Take a plunge and bought CKS99. They should be realy good. Same design and technology as CKS1000, but much cheaper.

The CKS99 should be a nice iem for the price. If they have a similar type tuning to my CKS1000 you are in for a treat. They should be an upgrade to the CKS77 as well. What is surprising is they aren't too spendy at all.. They go for around $101 on Amazon Japan.  Which is less than what I bought my CKS77 for.

In yahoo auctions they go for $60, but with buyee(tenso) they cost $85 shipped:)
But i actually ordered from cdjapan for $112 shipped.

By the way, if anybody's interested in more reviews / rankings, the following digital book seems to have much of the same content as Ghostfit's magazine. Reviews similar to the ones he posted start on page 96.

This is so helpful! Thank you! Even more excited about the MA600 now!

That is pretty accurate how I heard the CKN50 and the AD900X though I would actually rate it on center of Bass vs mid highs as I think the bass is perfect with the mids and highs.. That rating system is a bit flawed in that you can have a deep sound with wide stage like the CKS1000 or my AD900X..I suppose the stage is massive on the AD900X but can be as deep as the recording allows.
