Dsnut, you are so gonna be "mind blown" with them after 150+ hrs !

I have spent quite abit during the last couple months on audio gears but these CKN70 are the most satisfying (if you don't count the AD900X) ...for me, they have superceed the FXZ100/200 (Sorry sfw ! tongue.gif

 

I thought I was a basshead, but the CKN70 has changed that for me, now I'm officially a Midhead !

 

Between the AD900X and the CKN70 I am well equiped to retire from Head'fi ! biggrin.gif

 

....and not forgetting the WS99 wants to tag along for those EDM and Dubstep.

This is coming from the same guy that digs his beloved S400s more than the S500s. But which one is more popular with the gents and ladies here at head-fi??? HA! I am gonna have to take everything you say with a GRAIN of salt now ghost. wink_face.gif Double HA!!!

 

But i am planning to get the CKN 70s as well so....... what was your point again??? Right no point as usual. tongue_smile.gif

 

Don't end this fight so early into the year yet, cuz JVC haven't flexed all of their CNT muscles yet.

So it seems people are enjoying the Ckn70 s. I'm grabbing a pair myself, thx zelda. But I am curious, what sources are you enjoying them best from?

Fairly loud is fairly loud. Not loud until right before it breaks up. You can damage your earphones or worse your hearing.. I basically turn in up till it is loud to my ears and then turn it up a bit more and that should do it.

I listen to my FX40s at about 30% going through my ELE and it's fairly loud. I burn them in at about 80% and they haven't blown yet. That's the reason I'm asking because that's a HUGE difference, but I guess I'll just do what you said: I'll turn it a bit louder than my listening preference.

are these ckn70s similar to eph100 but lesser quality or do they sound better?

LoL, i burn everything i got on MAX volume no matter the phone. Haven't damaged any drivers yet, esp with these CNT/ micro drivers it can more than take 100% volume on ipods/ lappys, etc no problem, but hey that is just me. Knock on wood!!!

I have the Somic Efi 82 on the way so I'm looking forward to compare them.

If I am correct the Pro 80 is more or at least the same price as the dj100 so that means they are not a very good deal?

They clamp pretty hard and unevenly, I've had them on for about 6hrs yesterday.. you don't notice it at first but when you take them off, your jaws are sore and achy. They clamp unevenly because they don't swivel along the Y axis like the Beyers to fit better but then again, they're at least a quarter of the price. Besides the clamping, which I'm sure will go away, the cord sucks. It's coiled so I might look into either recabling or modding the hps themselves to be detachable. 

Thx. I think I will be buying the HI2050 soon. It will be my first open headphone :D

I burn my MH1Cs at 100%. It's not even that loud xD I'm scared to do this to my S500s though. I feel like there's no way I would damage the drivers, but if I did I would probably be devastated. Just like when I get my new CKN70s I would be nervous to turn it up that loud. But I feel like the louder the volume you burn at the better the results (and it's faster).

Well, considering they are 2 years newer... I expect them to be better all around. wink.gif

 

Doubt they will be as good with Trance music as the Yams are though. cool.gif

It depends. To me the dj100 is the best value for money headphone I own so it all comes down to what kind of sound you like.

 

I've not heard the HI2050 but the impressions in the Takstar thread from people who have both seams to be that the Pro80 is the better one (although a little bit more expensive).

Don't worry, whilst I was burning in my s500's a while back on my laptop using vlc media player the volume accidentally got turned up to 198%! (not by me!) for around 5 mins and I could hear the crackling and distortion when I entered the room lol but thankfully they were fine afterwards smily_headphones1.gif

How does the ATH-CKN70 compare to the Klipsch Image X10?

post #7515 of 25603

Sorry if I'm derailing the post, but you guys should listen to the dual driver TDK IE800 It's awesome!
