I'm from the UK, thanks smily_headphones1.gif

 

If you can find some Koss Tony Bennets for cheap (I got mine for $30CN), they come with a case that works well with the WS99's:

Thanks for the replies guys, I decided to go for the duragadget one, in relation to the koss one that was suggested it looks like a bit of a beast! I don't have an e11 but iv got a creative e1, would that be a good match for the ws99's?

If your WS99 is loose on the swifle you can buy a hooked screwdriver online size 1 is what you need.I bought this one and it works the left side is tight again smily_headphones1.gif

Hey guys, iv got my ws99 and I think iv found my perfect headphones smily_headphones1.gif

Only one tiny issue: they leak a hell of a lot of sound! Anybody got any suggestions on how to counter this? Maybe some new ear pads or something?

Thanks guys.

Hello folks. I just recently purchased a pair of WS99 and cannot be more satisfied. Absolutely stunning, but I was curious as to how these would compare to the ATH CKS1000? I was looking for a gym/outdoor headphone that would sound just as good as the ws99 without the leakage and with some noise isolation. Also I have an extra pair of the WS99 FS which is BNIB and unopened for a great price, def lower than ebay or amazon so anyone interested let me know! Thanks!

The 99's are warmer but have balanced bass, mids and highs, and the highs are never fatuiging. The 1k's have the same incredible bass, but are more V shaped and coloured, with the mids being a bit further back and/the highs being quite energetic (some may find this somewhat fatuiging after a while). Fwiw, I use the ue900 tips on them and love the sound, especially for electronic music like trance (great spacious soundstage too). Anyway, they both sound great, but they are different. The 1k's isolation is average, and I find they are too bulky and stick out of my ears too much for gym use (head gets caught in the doorways lol), so I happily use them at home.

Cool, thanks a bunch for the help! I Any suggestions for a pretty good IEM for outdoor/gym use that sound great with quality sound and bass. I'm willing to throw down around 120 for pair.

I really want voices and the outside music and clanking largely gone, and out of the many I've tried at the gym, the only ones that isolate enough and have enough bass and sound good enough for me are the tpeos h200's. Which is fine with me because they really do sound great. You have to find the right tips to eliminate the treble peak that they have, but once you do they are great (I use vmoda bliss 3.0 fittings - cheap too). You could probably find them used for around $120 I bet.

Anyway, that's just me! Good luck.

How do the Ws99 compare to the Vmoda m100?

Portability isn't a factor
$100 price difference is negligible, though money is always an object
