bit on the CKR9 after all the positive reviews. it's the first time i've spent over $20 on a IEM and will be pairing it with my old audinst hud mx-2. i will be using it daily since i'm back in college full time spending most of my time in the library.   also i can't believe i missed out on that CKR9 LTD! that is one sexy IEM color scheme.
 it seems like the R70X will be march 20, 2015. i'm going to keep my eyes on that headphone and see what others say. all i have to say is the new wing system (again) better not be a dud compared to the ATH-AD second gen wing systems.
*price drop *price drop *price drop   comes with original box and headphone adapter.   clearing some audio gear i do not use anymore and have been in storage. there is a scratch on the left earcup as seen in the picture. otherwise great condition. and these are the old school wing systems which should not be a problem fitting on your head. i know the second gen wing system had a major problem for some people fitting on the head.   FYI the pictures show the W5000...
wow i did not know DX12 might not get support on W7. that is a kicker since i'm primarily a PC gamer. sigh now i really have to think about my $$$ for DX12 AND the EHCI drivers issue on skylake.
http://wccftech.com/intel-skylake-remove-support-usb-based-windows-7-installation-platform-specs/   ignore if you are using Windows 8. Windows 7 users and previous versions of Windows will want to read.   am i thinking this right? i don't know of any DACs that has USB 3.0. so will people who WANT to upgrade to Skylake be screwed if they want to stick to Windows 7? Windows 10 remains to be seen at this point. i know for a fact myself i'll be sticking with windows 7...
5 pounds according to this UPS sticker i'm looking at on my box.
 it's my first time listening to any type of planar headphones and the HE-560 + H10 amp blows me away. it's basically what flysweep said early on in this thread which i experienced so far with the combo. i'm also hearing things i have never heard before. example is one song with a chrous singing low notes into a powerful high note which just blew me away. i have heard this song so many times and that was the first time i experienced that. and songs that puts a "slam" in...
after almost two weeks of burn-in with bifrost uber and H10 amp i can say the H10 drives the HD650 well. not OK or not great or not bloody freakin' fantastic you'll nerdgasm. just well. tube amps are still the top standards for driving the HD650. as for the HE-560 that is for another time. i plan to listen to it more but i can tell i am loving it.
mine arrived today and i just got off work. my initial impressions with this amp using the hd650 and ODAC and +6db settings are very impressive! it's not as fast as using a 5998 tube but almost there. bass doesn't hit quite as hard either but almost there also. vocals aren't a bit forward as i would like but that might change with burn-in. i most likely won't post any more impressions as i have a bifrost uber gen 2 usb arriving tomorrow and later the he-560 next week....
welp order the H10 just now. i will do the usual burn-ins for the he-560 and H10. happy holidays! it looks like i won't be disappointed when i read through the thread a third time.
