Quite simply...no.  The 10's are far superior to the 100's.

 

But that's just my opinion. 

 

The 10 is very neutral, whereas the 100 is very mid-centric.

So the little Audio Technica logo piece came off of my right earpiece. How would you suggest I reattach this without damaging anything? A tiny amount of superglue?

Maybe a small amount of superglue or double sided tape

I bought a pair and can agree with this thread (i read it all), The ATH-CK10 are a great little phone, excellent sound.

I am tempted to buy a second pair as a future back up.

modded sa5000, ck-10, stax-sr507,
I'm veering more towards bass neutral and loving every minute of it.
The ck-10 is comparable to the akg k3003, even more headstage. And so comfortable too.

The CK10's just rip through Pantera, Cowboys From Hell. I'm loving the speed, texture, neutrality and brassy treble. I can't believe I waited this long to try them. Timbre is off the charts for a BA, IMO.

Somehow I just tried the Sony noise-isolating hybrids onto my CK10 (the one with foams inside that comes with Sony IEMs nowadays)

and it's AMAZING!!! It turns out to be scaringly isolating, very close to be Ety-like isolating.

And being CK10, it's more comfortable, better SQ than Ety ER4.

Now I just left my ER4P lying around unused lol.

I know it's not very exciting (or head-fi-like) to say this, but I've always preferred the tips that came with the CK10's over all else I've tried, including the Sony hybrids. 

 

Can you comment on the difference between the hybrids versus the noise-isolating ones?

 

Thanks.

 

Cheers.

To be honest there is hardly any difference. Sound the same but maybe a tad more isolation. This is on my EX1000s anyway.

The tips that came with the CK10 are good but the Hybrids are better for me, mainly because the CK10's stay in my ear with the Hybrids on.

There's some noticeable differences to me, but wouldn't worth it for anyone to go out find it as the normal tips and hybrids already isolate really great.

IMO, the noise-isolating ones made the CK10 isolates almost like a pair of Ety. I can hardly-er hear incoming vehicles and surroundings, more so than any other tips I've tried, including regular hybrids.

SQ-wise, there's no difference between both hybrids, with or without foams inside.

 

Cheers :D

Just go to Japan, they're all over the place wink.gif

Still rocking the CK10 after 4 years. Still overall my favourite earphones, though I'll admit that soundwise, I'm sort of swayed by the Ortofon eQ5 and Grado GR8 now. But, as an entire package, I still cannot recommend the CK10 enough. And I got them back when the Japanese yen was cheap, so they cost me something like 160$! I've stepped on them with shoes on and they're still alive, popped off the titanium shell to check how they're connected, never use a case and still they keep going. Best earphones at any price for cost/performance users and still in the top three of my favourite sounding earphones of all time.
