Hard-disk v flash... what are best inner-ear phones for a basshead?
Iím a click away from buying the audio technica cks70 phones and Iíd like some opinions as to the best inner-ear for true bass... not just a thump. I really love the S9 and the overall sound quality is the best Iíve heard, but the quality of bass on flash players canít match that of hard-disk. My first pmp was the now prehistoric Iriver h100 series Ė gorgeous, rich, deep skull-rattling bass - and when youíre out and about with low frequency noise from traffic, on the tube or bus it retains its clarity unlike the S9. Iím thinking that should carry both players around with me Ė Iriver for music and S9 for everything else, but that defeats the whole purpose of buying the beautiful S9 in the first place. My current phones are sennheiser cx300 and I hope cks70ís or any other quality phones will recreate that richness of bass without muddying. But if flash players canít reach that depth will splashing out on expensive phones do any good?
