Nice review. I have no doubt that those earphones are great.
But while reading your review, you mentioned JVC FXZ series.That is a new option for me. So I got to the question CKS1000 or FXZ100?
Maybe I should tell you a little about my experience with in-ear headphones. I started with a entry-level , Sony MDR-EX300. Then they just 'melt away' one of those days (Brazil is hot haha). Then bought the ATH-CKS90. Just wonderful bass,nice fit. After one year of extense use,the left side just got defective. So my current headphones are the Monster Turbine High Performance. The sound is good,but the fit is just awful. I needed to cut the eartips! The bass are quite different from the CKS90. Monster are more like a subwoofer inside, yet the CKS90 bass seems deeper,different...
Now I want an inear focused on bass.I listen to 99% EDM. And please,good eartips. As I really liked the cks90 fit (the best between the ones that i used), and the cks1000 seems to have the same fit. This looks like the way to go.But this review put me in doubt (also why you morph from AT superfan to JVC superfan? haha)
I got somethin like ~$250 to waste, should I pick the CKS1000 ,or those FXZ100 are better for EDM music? And I'm also open to new suggestions (in-ear only).
I Almost bought the cks1000 from cdjapan,but they just run out of stock. Their price was the better that i found (~$225). eBay is like ~$280 sending by EMS, i won't buy with this shipment method (duties issue).
