CK100pro vs UE900 vs FXZ200 vs CKS1000

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

My VSonic Gr07s broke, so I've been doing a lot of research on new IEMs that just came out. I'm looking for an IEM in the $200-400 range, so I was wondering which one of these 4 IEMs rank the best? I'll be using these IEMs for playing guitar on stage and listening to mostly post-rock music. 

 

How would you rank these?

 

CK100pro

UE900

FXZ200

CKS1000

 

I have not seen too many reviews and comparisons on these IEMs, so any experience with these would be very helpful!

Or I could not get any of these and wait for the highly anticipated VSonic V7007

These IEMs are very different from eachother like JVCg FXZ200, CKS1000 are dynamic drivers based IEMs with impactfull punchy heavy bass but overall they are detailed yet to listen type UEMs with average isolation. UE900, CKS100Pro on other hand are BA drivers based IEMs and they are highely detailed with above average isolation but bass and overall impact can't compare to others two. I think UE900, CKS100Pro are better pick for stage use because overall highlyndetailed soundsignature to hear every details in music with great isolation which help to improve bass performance anyway. So if you want dynamic sound with heavy bass then dynamic based IEMs are great buy but if need more isolation, highly detailed sound with good punchy bass then BA drivers are better pick.

I'd hold off for a while. The market is about to really heat up in the next couple of months, as plenty of exciting top tiers will be released.

 

Better that than to buy something that will be obsolete within a short time.

What other brands/models should I be looking into in the next couple months?

 

After doing some research, it seems like the FXZ200 is better for more bass and isolation than the CKS1000. If I want better isolation and less boomy bass, then UE900 or CK100pro are better choices. Can anybody compare in more detail between UE900 vs CK100pro? Would like to know about their sound and which one isolates better. Also, would love to know more about how the FXZ200 sounds compared to the CKS1000 after a good amount of burn-in time.

I would definitely recommend Final Audio Design heaven IV over FXZ200.

It has a more accurate and punchy bass (and plenty of it), as well as much better "lush" mids.

 

You can have it for around 200$ including shipping from AccessoryJack.

How does the sub bass compare between the FADH IV and the FXZ200?

For $100 more you could get the ASG-2 by next month most likely. They seem to be in favor with many musicians for stage use. If you wait about 2 weeks there will be many impressions in the Aurisonics thread.

The ck100 looks to be the most accurate out of your choices, but I don't know about isolation. I suppose I should mention the ER4S as an option due to its unparalleled accuracy and isolation. However you may think it lacks bass, and the fit is a bit intrusive.

Not sure I can tell sub bass apart from other regions - do you have some tracks you want me to compare?
