Audio Technica Solid Bass ATH-CKS99 In-ear Headphones
The ATH-CKS99's Solid Bass technology utilizes an exclusive Double Air Chamber System.

In addition, the ear tips of the ATH-CKS99 are designed for maximum bass response, with a movable two-position post that lets wearers adjust the ear tips for the best fit, sound isolation and low-frequency performance.

However, the audio quality of these headphones entirely makes up for any slippage during workouts. The audio quality of these headphones is a problem - a problem for this reason: once you listen to these headphones, every other set of in ear headphones sounds horrendous. It makes gaming, listening to EDM and other "high-impact" audio activities very engaging. The audio quality of these headphones literally BLOWS away any competition, especially given the price. I've tried many sets of in-ear headphones (Klipsch, Bose, Beats) and these are by far the best set ever. Listening to audio through this headset is immersive, and you can hear every detail of the songs.
Now I'll be honest. I'm not an audiophile, I have no interest in these headphones for their minute technical advantages. I wanted a pair of headphones that makes the music come alive in my ears, and these headphones accomplish that. I've bought over three pairs of the CKS55's and I have absolutely no intention of migrating away from this form of headset anytime soon.
TLDR: Amazing audio quality, immersive sound, but don't expect to do karate with these headphones and still have them in your ears after you are done.
The bass sounds naturally good (not booming) but the vocals feels distant and small. Despite being comfortable, it looks kind of weired in the ears (I am 28 years old male and I am not comfortable wearing that in front of other people).
At this price, If you want a bassy IEM with a FULL sound, you should buy sony xb90ex.
I bought cks99 as I thought it is similar to the higher cks1000 but I was wrong.
By the way, I returned the cks99 to amazon without any hesitation (amazing after sale support), now I am using CKR10 which I really consider as an upgrade from the xb60ex in terms of depth and details.
Comfort is exceptional for a set of in ear headphones. They come with 4 sizes of silicon plugs, they are durable and very easy to swap and clean, with a resealable plastic case included. The dome just above the earpiece itself rests comfortably in my ears and creates a very secure fit. They do a fantastic job at blocking out outside noise and I can wear these while running and at the gym without the fear of them falling out.
Also I need to mention the case they provide with these headphones. It is made from leather and is actually a reinforced box with a magnetic clasp. It is great for travel as I don't have to worry about them being crushed in my bag, and there is also enough room inside it to pack away the additional earpieces as well.
If you are in the market for a top quality pair of in-ear headphones, keep these on your list for sure.
The "leather"(imitation leather) carrying case has started to crack and peel on the bottom. However, the case structure is fine.
Disclaimer: I am by no means an audiophile. I am only basing this review on MY opinions of the sound reproduction of these headphones.
