Since I've posted a few comments here and there I thought to start a new thread about my quest for sound nirvana (according to my personal taste obviously). I bought a pair of CK10 as they were recommended as having great highs (which I love). Unfortunately the thin bass (sorry, best way I can describe them!) made sell them. I now have the IE8 that have plenty of bass, but the highs leave a bit to be desired, IMO. So is there an earphone that combines the best of both...
When I bought the IE8 they had the Radius in stock but no sample to test. I know they are half the price so they are quite tempting. Which tips do you use instead of the standard ones? How do you find the trebles compared to the IE8? I find the IE8 too prominent on the mids and laid back on the highs. I use an iPod touch as a source not equalized.
Wicked digital seems to be the only place selling the e-Q7. Headphonic has the Radius but I also read in some reviews that they can be uncomfortable and difficult to get a good seal due to their shape. I had a pair of Triple fi 10 and I loved the sound but I couldn't wear them for extended periods no matter what foams or other tips I used. Headphonic will let you can test the earphones only if they are given a test set otherwise you just need to buy them and hope for the...
No, I'm in Perth unfortunately  
  I guess I'd like a bit more treble than the IE8 (it'd be OK not to reach the extension of the CK 10) but a bit more bass than what the CK10 can offer. Any suggestion?  
Thank you. Were you able to do a direct comparison yourself?

Hi guys. As the Ortofon are available here in Australia I'd be interested to know your opinion on their trebles versus IE8 and CK10. I found the trebles on the CK10 fenomenal but ultimately the "thin" bass made me sell them. I then tried the IE8 and even if the overall sound is more full bodied than the CK10 the trebles are not crisp enough for my taste. So I guess that I'm trying to find the best of both worlds. Could the Ortofon be the answer? Thank you for your thoughts.
Well, an update on my quest. Now the Ck10 are listed on ebay and I bit the bullet and purchased a pair of IE8. I know that the highs are not as prominent as the Ck10 but what I gain in other areas, bass particularly, make for that loss. I think that it might be time to then concentrate to improve the source of the music more than the receiving end (earphones). Maybe time to switch to Cowon?
Well, I thought to resurrect this thread as I have an issue with the Ck10 I purchased as after a while the left channel is more prominent than the right. I have tried several combinations of tips with the same result. I've also tried the same source of music with my other headphones and that sensation is not present so it's defenetly the ck10. Unfortunately as I use an ipod there's no option to fine tuned the balance. Also, even if in my original post the priority was to...
