well i'm looking for something that is clear but has good punchy bass. I listen to a lot of hip hop/rap, but also other genres such as rock ,pop. r&b, ect. I'm not a bass head so i don't want it to be over powering. I'd rather it be a balanced sound.

Can't go wrong with the CKN50 - it delivers all that at a low price.

Whats the main diff between these and the ATH-CKN70?

Nothing much. Ckn70 has better mids, bit more details and hardest mid-bass ever I have heard. And different soundstage.
And ckn70 is better for smaller ears.

Ak ok thanks.

I went for ZA Bassos in the end. Hope I made right choice.

Prefer fast sub bass and big soundstage with good highs and mids.

Any recommendations tips for the CKM500?

Personally I use the Sony Hybrid tips work well for me and highs are defiantly not reccessed at all to my ears.  I'd consider them to have quite forward treble actually. Very comfortable as well for my ears I've actually stopped using my headphones recently since these are more comfortable then any headphone I own and sound great.
