Hello! , have been a lurker here for awhile , this is my first post. Anyway, does anyone have experience with the Audio Technica Solid Bass line or earphones ?( ie. ATH-CKS99 ) I would be very gratefull if your could share your opinions in these. I was planning to get one but don't know the how good we're these as the CKS99 were quite new and were not mentioned in the forums . Also , I would also like to know if there is any difference between the CKS55,CKS77 and CKS99 . Well , thanks in advance for any replies !

Cheers!

Hi,

 

Just want to give a little review about CKS99. For the price I can say the Quality of the balance sound with solid bass is awesome :)

I was using Westone 1 before and I feel lack of bass. This CKS99 comes with a solid bass while the mid and low still Clear, this makes me move away from JVC FXT90 and Shure SE215 LTD. I change the eartip with Comply T400 make it even comfortable to use. But this type not recommended to use for jogging, because I feel the cable attract some noise while walking not like my Westone.

 

just my 2 cents

Cks77 is very good bass iems but heard the new Cks 99 specially Cks 1000 ltd is way better.....their bass don't cover the mids...they improve over the previous around mids and highs...mids are excellent in the new ones..but require burn in at least 100 hrs...in short they are one of the best in the market right now.....

Thanks guys! I went on and bought the CKS99i
It's as what you guys described but I had one minor issue with it , the pause/play button on the mic is quite hard to press meaning you would frequently press it only once when you wanted to do it twice and accidentally increase or decrease the volume .

Congratz for your new CKS99i. Well, it's not happen to my CKS99i bro. You may want to check with the shop if can get a replacement

Is the cks99 loud enough?? And does it have ear-bleeding bass at top volume??

I'd say its pretty loud , I use it on 6"dots" on a iPhone 5 with EQ . I've never had the need to blast it more then 7"dots" although if you plan on buying them, note that they stick out of your ears ( and people stare at them )

Sorry , you know when you increase or decrease the volume , the loudspeaker thing comes out with all the small bars that tell you how loud it is ,

Can someone please put a picture of what they look inside the ear? How much does it stick out. I would want to see a photo please!

It sticks out a lot. about half the length of it is outside if you are using complys , id say it rests slightly deeper if using regular ear tips.

Those are the cks99?
Are you happy with them?

Yeah , those are the 99s more specifically the CKS-99i with mic. I'm pretty Happy with them although if prefer something more subtle. They don't sound bad but one thing with the mic version is that the volume clicker is placed very close to the pause/play button and I often accidentally press volume instead of the pause.

I have two ckm500, which I love. But I really want the cks99i with mic. Is it worth the money? I think they look great...

I think their pretty good , but you can't really hear the bass if on public transport as the isolation on these aren't too good even with complys . I'm no big audiophile so I can't comment on sound but I'd say the bass is really really good. Weather it's worth or not I guess it's up too you . One minor disadvantage is that puting on a sling bag ( like a crumpler ) will most of the time knock these out of your ears unless you lift the bag all the way up over your head.
