Very good earphone for the price

Posted

Pros: Elegant bass, good mids, ok highs

Cons: Not very detailed, rather small soundstage, not very good instrument separation

CK7 earphone is a nice detailed ear piece with titanium housing which makes it very durable. For me, although i am not using it very often this works the same as it used to be the first day i bought it. They require burn in time at least 100 hours and you can definitely tell the difference in the bass section and the mids.       Comfort: i would recommend to be worn over the ear because the drivers have a bit weight due to the titanium housing. its not bad and you can for sure wear them over the ear with no problems. Comfort wise they are ok I would say       Microphonics: The cable is a rubbery very thin one and you have to be careful not...

Upgrade from EX90?

Posted

Pros: Durable build, hopefully the cable too; decent SQ, maybe even good

Cons: Durability of the cable maybe; took a long time to burn-in & bass & mids not satisfactory : bass heavy these are.

I ordered the Audio-Technica ATH-CK7(S) Titanium Earphones to replace my Sony MDR-EXQ1's in terms of a comfortable pair of earphones, with SQ hopefully at least as good as the EX90's. First Impressions It seems I may need to find something else with the SQ of the EX90's and the fit of the EXQ1, as so far I am a little disappointed by the CK7's... The mids of the EX90's sound better. I've been thoroughly comparing the EX90's & CK7's with the Maria João Pires playing the Chopin Nocturnes album recording in PCM on my EH1, and the piano sounds not quite right in the mediums I feel... The tone seems a bit off. Shame, for comfort-wise, I really am liking the CK7's. And...

Great sound and durable

Posted

Pros: Great detail and balance, durable, comfy, stylish...

Cons: Have that slight AT artificial/bloated mids and bass

I think these are a great portable option for those who don't like full in-ear phones. These are comfortable, easy to get in and out, don't completely cut you off from the world and they are durable.   SQ wise I think they are very good, much better than a lot of the semi in-ear canal phones I have tried. they are reasonably balances and detailed. Although they have that slightly bloated in the bass, but MUCH less so than most canal phones.

Forged Titanium Goodness

Posted

Pros: Sound, comfort, isolation, miniscule microphonics

Cons: Cable.

These are the most expensive IEMs I've ever owned, so take my review with whatever seasoning you may need.   Bass:  I don't know if these will totally blow away bassheads, but I'm sure these will at lease appease them; I know sometimes I feel a little nauseous with these on and I'm listening to something like Sarah McLachlan - Fallen (Gabriel & Dresden Mix), so these things do not lack bass at all.  Un-EQ'd, these will have more punchy bass than rumble, but when you EQ the bass up on these, then you will get the more rumbly, head-filling bass.  I let a friend of mine who plays the drums give these a listen.  I let him listen to the intro of Superbus - Travel the world and he was...
