Well thats a real shame. I reallllly like the Ck10s (not as much as my Sm3s tho biggrin.gif). They're arent bass heavy no matter how good a seal you get tho. They extend pretty low and have good quality but not much in quantity. And since I mostly use the CK10 for classical or soundtracks, thats fine by me. But if i feel a need for more bass,I just crank up the Bass Boost on the Arrow to 1. Good enough for me.

 

I should be jealous of you...1964Qs...man...i really want customs but the hassle of it all puts me off. By hassle i mean ear impressions, shipping etc...I'm all the way in Malaysia and the customs are usually all the way over...well, not here. LOL.

It is a shame - I literally can't hear what all the fuss is about with these phones as a result. I'll be selling them soon enough so they will make someone else very happy :)

 

I have to say that the process of getting the 1964-Qs wasn't that bad, although I live in the US so that definitely helps. I understand though because it sure seemed easier to get customers from them than from one of the Chinese manufacturers due to the long turn-around times etc.

'Tis a shame indeed. But as you say, at least they'll make someone else happy now.

 

Dont know much about the Chinese makers other than UM and theyre supposedly pretty good. Pricewise, theyre just as expensive as say, JHA. Which to me is kinda ridiculous.

 

Anyways, this talk of customs is kinda OT for this thread.tongue.gif

I've had my CK10s for just over a week now.  And at the moment, I'm very very happy!

 

Initially I was struggling with fit.  I've always had problems with my left ear, so was not surprised to find that I could not achieve a seal for more than a few seconds, no matter what I did.

 

The only earphone I've ever got a proper seal in my left ear with was my UE SF5 pro, using the double flange sleeves.  So I bought some Shure triple flanged sleeves and tried those on the CK10.  Worked initially, but insertion felt too deep and isolation was surprisingly poor.

 

So I tried cutting off the top flange, leaving a double flange akin to the UE sleeves.  What an improvement!!  Now I get a great seal and great isolation!  Sound quality is very good.  Not sure if it's as good as with the original CK10 tips, but it's pretty close.  Bass presence at least is much more satisfactory now...

Nice 1.

 

Just goes to show you can't lend a friend an IEM for 5 minutes and expect them to hear what you're hearing. =/

The triple flange tips from Shure, Westone & Monster all give me an excellent seal.

How awesome for you. I have never been able to get a good seal with triple, double, or triple trimmed into double flange tips. For me it's hybrids or foamies and I prefer Hybrids because they last longer and are easier to insert. I have a Monster sampler pack with the gels and whatnot but six months later I haven't opened it.

Is there anyone here could recommends me a "ck10 version" full-size can?

I found the AD-series are a bit colored to my taste.

oh dear, double post :(

post #1286 of 1518

SA-5000 is all I can think of, it doesn't have a flat FR like the ck10 though.

post #1287 of 1518

OMG, i totally forgot there are sony full-size cans ;).

thanks kiteki, and what do you think about beyer full-size??

post #1288 of 1518

I have limited experience with full-size cans, but I don't think the Beyer DT series sounds like the CK10.

 

If you want the flat FR of the CK10, you could check out Sony's brand new studio line-up, for example the MDR-7520, that looks like a really good headphone to me, but I haven't heard it.

 

Oh, Shure SRH-940 is actually vaguely similiar to the CK10!

post #1289 of 1518

I think there are some similarities with the DT880 600 ohms since both are fairly flat but the treble between the two is much different. The CK10 sounds a bit more peaky and prone to sibilance than the DT880 but in general its difficult to compare full size and iems since they will sound different.

This is probably the closest match I can come up with too.
