How you are describing the sound is how they sounded to me with the triple flange tips cut down to double flange. The rest of the spectrum sounded exactly as it does now, but now I have good, respectable bass. I guess you can come to your conclusion, and I will come to mine, but I disagree with "it wouldn't be only the bass that was affected."
|Nice. And? What did you make of the kick drum?
Whereabouts in the mix did you hear it, and did you see the concert by any chance?
I did not go to the concert, but I have heard that song literally over 100 times, as it is one of my first test tracks for all my headphone listening. And I A/B with it and listen to it over and over. The kick drum, while not as boomy as the IE8 for example, but still has weight and reverb. I would say it is close to the TF10 deep bass. Not exactly there, but close. And this is with no EQ.
|Nope. Not way more to me. If it was way more, then the PFE would have had to have had minus bass! But then, we used different sources with the PFE so that would have made a difference.
Doesn't matter the source, the CK10 has nice bass to me. Fuze, AMP3, my sound card, etc. I will be using it with a Shadow soon and possibly an Arrow (and Pico Slim whenever I actually get one), but surprisingly good from the HPO of my my DAPs. Again, I believe your experience is due to the seal. The shape of the IEM makes it hard for me to get it deep enough to get a good seal with any tips other than the foam tips.
And Hotel CA sounds spectacular with the CK10, especially the way it is presented IMO. Definitely on par quality wise with the IE8, but extremely different presentation.
