post #1216 of 1885

I've been using the CKM500 for a few weeks now, and they are excellent value for the money, but I have gained some interest in trying out these carbon nanotubes.  The FXD70 is one of the models I'm looking at, I have a fairly good idea on how it will sound based on the impressions in this thread, but I need to know something about the soundstage.

 

One of the things I like about the CKM500 is the way it presents the sound, I can hear layers of instruments and it has good width and depth.  So, for those that own both the CKM500 and FXD70, how does the soundstage compare?  I've seen comments saying that it isn't the biggest and it can sound congested because it is not vented, but the comparisons were not made with the CKM500 in mind. 

 

Thanks in advance.

 

P.S. I know that the FXD80 will probably have a better soundstage than the CKM500 but it is not within my budget.

The D70 will sound more congested than the M500 and D80 for obvious reasons.  But, the D70 does not sound congested when not compared.  You will hear instrument separation and the details the music is presenting but it will sound more like you are closer to the musicians.  Don't expect the vocals to be up front as with the M500's but it's there, just few feet back.  I believe the D70 presents a tighter more precise presentation but the D80 has more air and is better layered.  Both the FXD's are better at details than the M500 IMO.  If you thoroughly enjoy the soundstage of the M500 and might be disappointed if it's on a lesser scale, I'd jump to the D80.  It's one of the main reasons that I prefer the D80 over the D70.

Plus the FXD 80 are just 20 bucks more expensive that the FXD 70.

@DannyBai - thanks for your reply, I will give it some thought.  I may have to save up for the FXD80.

 

@sinquito - in my country, the D80 is over double the price of the D70, if it was only $20 more, then my decision would be made easier.

I can't remember the last time I bought a iem locally, try ebay, I bet the seller will ship to your country, most of them do ship to Mexico which is far away from Japan and has a lousy mail system.

Sorry if this was already asked, but can anyone compare the fxd80 to the xb90ex, or the s500?

 

Looking for a portable movie phone with occasional music. Which one has a more spacious soundstage with a large amount of bass that never intrudes mids or high.

 

If not any of those three, which one would any of you recommend? 

 

Thanks!

The FXD80 is one of the ultimate IEM's for movies, and it's portable!

 

 

The 'black levels' i.e sonic contrast, the detail finesse like wind, and the hard hitting bass are all quite cinematic I think.

 

For example watch this clip with the FXD80, use high volume, wait until around 1:30 then you'll hear it!

 

 

1080P for best sound.

Didn't know there was a sequel! Must watch...

I'm already missing the FXD80. I wish I would've watched more movies with it.

Went and dug up my pile of old DVDs and found:

 

(1) Shaolin Soccer (Steven Chow)   ...before Kung Fu hustle?

(2) Kung Fu Mahjong   ...(No Steven Chow but the same 'others' actors)

Ermm, not really, I think he over acts his roles but in a comedy, he's forgiven.

Kung Fu Hustle's one darn funny movie cause of all the other actors, believe it or not, that landlady kinda reminds me of my mum (Bless her soul)

 

Chow Fun ?    ...you mean Chow Yun Fat ?   ...yeah ! now that's an actor, convincing in every role he took on.
