I was just checking these now! I'm trying to finish the review hehe! I had the impression that Bassos where kinda aggressive with a big soundstage. I don't really think that this warmish airy "veil" will appeal to me. I find the S500s just fine in warmth but I don't really want something warmer/relaxing. So probably I must head towards FXD70 or CKN70 according to you?
Thanks for the info! Do you think that Tenore's bass is enough for the kind of music I've mentioned above?
Actually there is no "veil" to the Bassos at all, the sound is clean and airy despite the bass emphasis. Nothing on them is recessed, but they just have a slightly warmish sound signature due to the deep and big bass. The bass does not affect the mids, or highs whatsoever. I personally would not recommend the FXD70s, they are wayyy too mid centic, with aggressive highs. Bass is tight but not much bass quantity. The FXD80s and CKN70s is much better. Though the CKN70s has a really aggressive treble as well so..... Best and most safe bet is the FXD80s, the Bassos/ tenores or the NuFroces
