Can anyone that owns these make any comparisons to the CKM-500?   That was my next planned AT iem purchase at around $60 SHIPPED from Japan but for roughly 2X the price these seem like a winner.
You could always just get a pair of JVC HARX-700 which are one of the best for the money and just do more research to know what your flavor is.....theres a good chance you might not feel the need to get anything better.   And they're built very well....and not just for the price.   I've held cans in the $200 range that didn't feel as sturdy and well built as my HARX-700.
How can that be when the Audio Technica ATH-A900x absolutely destroys the M-50 in every possible way?   The only drawback to the A900x is the AT wing system which is not for everyone.     But the OP of this thread sounds like someone that is attempting to stir up some more sales for his business possibly?
The Audio Technica ATH-CKM500 is no slouch and around $56 SHIPPED.   I have the CKM50 which is no where near as good as the CKM500 and I'm VERY HAPPY....there is not one genre it doesn't excel at.   For reference I also own the AD700 for reference so I know the AT house sound.   CKM77 is another option with a bit more of a bass tilted signature.   I have a pair of CKM500 on order so I'm walking the walk.
Late to the party but I'll be ordering the ATH-CKM500 right after my A900x and E17 arrive.   Everytime I feel the urge to try a different brand I'm pulled right back to AT.   Damn you DsNuts!   I mean that in good way.
This does sound a bit controlling.   I haven't looked into any of these proposed guidelines but thanks for the heads up.   If a person chooses to blow out their eardrums that should be their choice.   I doubt they will have any say on max DB levels at concerts....especially the METAL scene which is VERY domninant in any European country.
Magnepan is also a good choice.   The room plays a big part in the final sound signature but as long as your room isn't super reflective or super dead you should get good results.   You also need to space them a few feet away from any room boundaries....so be prepared to dedicate a room to that type of speaker setup.....another reason why headphone audio is so popular.
For what they are....and how cheap they can be had I see NO REASON on EARTH  why anyone would have a bad thing to say about the ATH-AD700.   They aren't for every music genre but when they agree with the music they're magic.   A colored magic....but a VERY nice color.   I can only say my only regret was the Sennheiser HD-205....not the best choice for my first real pair of headphones. But for $23......I guess I can't really complain except for the vice grip head clamp...
NO....yours are defective.   I have the ATH-A700 and the A900x SHOULD have better bass response.   They could be wired out of phase or there could be a driver issue.   Return them. Period.
