The ATH-CKS1000.. - Page 8

post #106 of 560

I'm assuming detail-wise the CKS1000 doesn't falter behind the FXD80 either? Because if that's the case I'll probably be investing in a pair soon.

The sound of the CKS1000 is in a different scale. What I mean is. The FXD80 stage is above average for smaller micro HD earphones and it is that imagery that makes them special

 

The beauty of these CKS1000 is. The scale and sound of these earphones sound more like a nicely tuned high end headphone. The big 13mm driver and dual air chamber gives depth and stage to the sound that most earphones lack..Imagery of the FXD is their specialty but these CKS1000 is a completely different sound signature. The FXD sound like nice earphones. These sound more like headphones. The sound is on a much larger scale over them..Imagery for bass earphones in the past has issues with clean imagery and detail..

 

These earphones do not. It is a very nice high end sound. The FXD80 has a bit of a brighter tilt to their sound. These CKS1000 is more warm and much smoother and fuller bigger sounding while maintaining a very nice level of detail and precision..

That certainly helps a lot! I've narrowed down my next IEM choices to either the FXZ200 or these, possibly also the TDK BA200. Man I wish I could give these all a listen before I drop the cash. Definitely interested in how these compare to the FXZ200 since AT and JVC have been upping their antes lately, and since both of them are marketed with bass in mind. TDK BA200 is probably the more neutral, analytical of the three since it's of a completely different "class" probably.

But that argument would also hold for the FXZ100 and they're similarly priced? tongue.gif I reckon the sound signature also needs to be considered; a well tuned single dynamic is not necessarily a bad thing. Then again, if you already like the JVC sound... smily_headphones1.gif

Shipped from Tenso yesterday, so I should have these in my hands by early next week.

 

For those that own them already, would you have any recommendations for which tips to go with? I'm looking for great isolation while commuting via public transportation, and have been reading reviews of non-stock tips.

Dsnuts, how are you liking the CKS1000 to the FXZ200, and maybe the TDK BA200 if you've had a chance to listen to those as well? Totally on the fence as to which one out of those three I should choose.

I would rate the CKS1000 somewhere between the FXZ100 and the FXZ200. The unique factor of the CKS1000 is their engaging smooth mids. The FXZ200 is a excellent earphone. One of the best I have in my possession..TDKs I don't own.  The cost of the CKS1000 is going for $169 from Amazon Japan. Using Tenso. The FXZ200 will cost much more.

 

The CKS1000 is much easier to drive and weigh much less than the FXZ200 that is another consideration.. Even though I would rate the FXZ200 over these CKS1000 in sound..For simple usability wise and the sound enjoyment of the CKS1000 make them actually a better value for your money over the FXZ200.  Now if you want one of the best universals on this planet and are willing to pay the extra the FXZ200 is an excellent earphone. Vocal performance however. The CKS1000 is hard to beat for the price right now.

Awesome, time to save up for the FXZ200. Though I have friends in Japan who can purchase the FXZ200 for me for the Amazon jp price :D

At Japanese prices that is a no brainer for certain. These are fantastic. Wait till you check out a good movie with them.

At current amazon jp prices, the difference between these and the FXZ200 is only a mere 20 usd. I'd just be a little hesitant for customs, because the fxz would face import duties in Europe.. and that is a big ouch! frown.gif

I'll just control my urges for a little while till the price levels balance out a little.. if only the fxz200 would drop 20% on their msrp... smily_headphones1.gif
