Audio Technica ATH-CK10 - Page 9

post #121 of 1523
Hy everyone!
Could you tell me a place that sells these phones for $200 and ships international but if possible not for a horrid shipping cost?
I found a place on ebay but the shipment with priority mail is $57
Or is there any chance to find them used?

At first I was looking at the ATH CKS70 but these came into my sight (well what cost twice as much that must be better , and these are armatures and so on )
My budget is quite limited and I want a good update for my cx95 (yeah I know thats not that big deal now)

Oh and one more thing:
Will the Cowon S9 be enough to drive them?

See, that's the part I'm not so sure about. To me, the CKs sound so good that I'm not entirely certain it can be improved upon for my own personal sound preferences. And I really don't buy into the whole "number of drivers" thing.

What's really telling to me is that I've got absolutely zero desire now for any other IEM than that of the CK100. I'm really curious about them; JH13, not really. Ditto the 16 and 18.

I'm in the same boat as others here...I've been searching for some CK10s for over a week and there does not appear to be any retailers in Canada selling them. I'm in Toronto, ON.

Online, I've found them at amazon.com and newegg.com...amazon will ship them international but as a previous poster pointed out, the shipping is $40-55. Newegg.com does not allow Canadian customers...I spoke to someone in customer service and they directed me to their newegg.ca site which does not have the CK10s in their inventory. I also tried .ca site for amazon but they also do not list the CK10 in their inventory.

hopefully ill have the same with the CK10. I've gone through a decent amount of earphones the last couple months. Maybe I should just stay away from here and be happy with what I got.

I have to say I agree. I am using them nightly in my ears when I fall asleep, and I can hardly wait to walk the dog (another listening session). Thanks for the review AudioDwebe.

Thanks for all your impressions, too.

Listening to music...such pleasure!

Nils Lofgren's Acoustic Live, the perfect CD for the CK10s (and many other IEMs in fact). Just listened to it, and blown away.

How's micro detail and micro dynamics on CK10s?

I don't think I understand the question. What do you mean by micro dynamics and detail?
post #132 of 1523
They are micro, what else? JK. I am good with CK10's regular detail and dynamics, for sure.

Well, macro detial means the main harmonics of instruments and vocals - "the body" so to speak. A headphone with good macro detial can allow the listener to hear the bodies of all the instruments and vocals very well without them getting lost in the mix. Macro dynamics are the variations in volume between quieter and louder macro details.

Micro detial are the more subtler harmonics present within the bodies of instruments and vocals including the various reverbs that the bodies of the sounds produce as well as smaller detail within the bodies, sort of like bumps or cracks on a surface. It means how textured the sound is and how well ambiance and depth is portrayed. Micro dynamics are the variations in volume between the quieter and louder micro detials.

That's just how I understand these terms. My explanation probably sounds a bit silly and I am not sure what the proper definitions of these terms are, but I hope you get the idea.

Got the idea, and it may be too esoteric for my humble ears/brain. But I will say that I believe I can hear what you describe very well when the CK10s are in my ears. I mean, to me, they are the best experience I have had with IEMs, and so I can only feel that they deliver on both macro and micro levels, detail and dynamics. However, it may be something you can only find out for yourself.

I think a lot of that depends on how much detail your source and amp are capable of allowing you to hear, but I find the CK 10s are excellent in the area of allowing subtle details to be clearly heard. To give one example, in some classical violin recordings some headphones tend to homogenize the sound and smooth it out, the CK 10s allow you to hear the friction of the bow on the string very well when the recording captures it, so you hear that zzzht sound of the bow being drawn, as well as the main note, much as you would live if you were sitting relatively close to the stage, so it is a realistic sound with some life to it.
