    I think I'll go buy one before the ckr90 then. I honestly didn't like the fit of the cks1100 or the bass quantity on those, despite the quality of it. Hopefully this one will not disappoint and will sound more impressive than even my Msr7. Thanks Jant! @doctorjazz Do the DM3s go neck to neck...

    Please tell us, how do the sound? Apparently they're balanced, have good crispy treble and the bass extends well? I needed that on the msr7s, the subbass that is.

    Thought I was an audiophile, what's wrong?

    The older computers actually required sound cards to sound their best. Now that the latest intel motherboards have the latest realtek drivers and sound chips, there's no NEED for a sound card. Now, if you want to improve the sound quality, you could get a sound card, but I think it's a better...

    So subbass is also comparable with the 7550 tape mod to the xb90ex?

    Nice, get the cks1100 when you can, it's literally the best thing in AT's arsenal.

    Though the comparisons are a bit early for judgment, how would the cks1100s fare against the x1 finders?   Just in terms of vocals, guitars, and bass. I feel that the cks1100's treble is exactly what I needed for my treble sensitive ears.   Btw, how do the cks1100s compare to the ckr10s and 9s?

    Audio-Technica ATH-CKS1100 Impressions & Discussion Thread

    Cks1100 impressions.     The treble has fleshed out enough to have the details necessary to sound smooth, lack in peaks,a nd lack in grain that the ckr9s sometimes had. The ckr9's treble sometimes lacked the weight to it, making it sound a bit like a splash sometimes, but I hadn't noticed it...

    Awesome, cannot wait! Have a great time reading this thread in the meanwhile.       Seems that the cks1100 will be the endgame in-ear monitor for me. It gracefully renders drums, guitars, violins, bass, cymbals, and even vocals accurately. I am slowly starting to hear the circular stage that...

    Welcome back @ericp10 !   I hope you sometimes comment here and there.     It's pretty dang good to be honest. The mids sound a lot more natural than the ckr9s did. The highs are refined to the point where there is weight and a lack of grain that the ckr9s sometimes had.   The whole...

    After listening to the CKS1100 for a few hours, the in-ear monitors almost sound as Jant described it. With the proper fit, acoustic instruments do sound weighty, clear, but most importantly, contain the bite necessary to sound natural. The ath-cks1100's timbre quality is fantastic. Instruments...

    Wow, now I know the name of the "divider." lol, thanks. I see where you placed it now. I feel kind of ignorant now that I realize the actual term for it. I couldn't tell honestly, it looked like it was removed. I'm seriously starting to appreciate what audio technica did here for the cks1100.  ...

    Hohoho, I see where you're going with this. I forget that some cases have a fixed divider. Very sneaky lol. I felt that I could have pulled it off, but I was afraid to lose it, since I may need it someday.    Still, that makes it even better, more space! I'll "check" again if there's a...

    Do the cks1100 reach lower subbass levels than the Ltd you own? I remember you stating that the ckr9s lacked the subbsss emphasis you wanted.

    Reviewers wanted - Sound Blaster products

    Major updates on the Sound Roar Blaster 2.     I find that the bass is more than adequate when the terrabass function is on. The bass is controlled when it is off, but the lower bass regions (30-60hz) starts to lack in this small speaker. If you value subbass like I do, have terrabass on at...
