These earphones don't sound as much good on iPhone 6 as they do on my macbook air and a laptop (On air and laptop its like listening to a sound system :)). Have any of you had same problem? What did you do about it?

Macbook is a better source for your music. Not much you can do about that other than using an amp, or if you've got an android device, DSP

It has been 2 years after the thread started. So many good review about this pairs, but in reality the quality is not impressed me. I'm agree that the detail and high is better.

But about the bass, I really don't recommend to get this one. I have several IEM which has better bass such as Philips SHE9550, SHE8005 and Pioneer SE-CL711,

They lose in clarity and detail but not the bass, besides they costs only one-third and one-half compared to this pairs.

I would describe that CKS77's bass is average, it emphasizes on mid bass and upper bass but lack of sub bass. You won't expect car subwoofer quality with this pair.

Some IEM which is advertised as bass heavy like JVC xtreme xplosives HAFX1X, Pioneer SE-CL751 with Subwoofer effect, are about the same.

I have concluded that no existing IEM which can match the Over-ear headphone  in term of bass quality. I'd rather dissapointed anyway but that's they are.

My comparison is against Over-ear headphone Plantronics backbeat pro and Philips Fidelio. My track is the "bass I love you" by bassotronics.

Until now I can not find IEM which has equal bass quality with those pairs.

So these were released in 2011. And replaced by CKS77X in 2013. But now there is new successor - CKS770. Price around $60.

Is it just me or does the CKS770 look like an updated CKS90??

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 75

CKS99 looks more similar to 90, than 770

Probably CKS770 sounds like CKS99 and CKS990 is upgrade to them, but CKS1100 is destroying CKS1000.

the same type of cylinder shape. ;)

You are right about logo.

Yeah just meant updating the physical design as we don't know the sound yet. They do say it is a newly developed driver.

I found the CKS770 to be extremely well tuned and is better than the CKS77 on all levels. I like my CKS77 but it sounded like it is broken when comparing it to the CK770. Go get them CKS77's owner. Experience "Dual Magnetic Field Driver".

I am thinking of buying CKS770. Could you please tell me the difference between CKS77 and CKS770 on all three levels,I mean the highs,mids and bass.How is the bass of CKS770 as it a newly developed driver? How much did you pay for it? Presently, I own cks77.
