Audio Technica ATH-CK10 - Page 93

post #1381 of 1523

90% sure they didn't stop producing them.  they just stopped exporting them.  but yeah, these iems are the real deal.  i haven't felt the need to upgrade since i got them however many years ago now.  though i've just been bitten by the upgraditis bug.  apparently the heir 4.ai is like better CK10.  the thought of that blows my mind.

It seems that AT discountinued them, I cant find any pair on Amazon Japan, kakaku or rakuten

 

Btw, could you make a comparison between 4ai and ck10? Sometimes,  but not too often, I found the treble of ck10 quite harsh for several tracks

i don't actually have the 4ais.  i'm not sure anyone has the two to compare either.  joker doesn't, and most of the old ck10 crowd has either moved on or stopped posting i believe.  i recently just came back to the forum.

 

i'll be sad if they actually discontinued the line.  they were stellar.

 

as for selling...  maybe, if i can gather the cash to get the 4.ai.

It's such a shame, if only AT could re-release the CK10 with some usability improvements for approx $200, they would sell really well.

Most did move on from the CK10. I know I certainly did

not surprised.  its a gateway drug, since it barely scratches the top tier bracket where customs normally reside.  speaking of which, remember that thread?  top tier comparison.  that was a good time.

I'm still rocking the CK10s and they haven't miss a beat. They're the most stealthy IEMs and have the soft, comfortable cables. Tried getting silicone tips for them, but could never get a good seal after several impressions so foamies work best for my ears. Found the hard AT foam tips work well if you use your body heat to warm them up before insertion.

Anyone want to sell theirs?
post #1390 of 1523

i would consider selling mine depending on how much i could get for them.  i had no idea these were running a hair less than $400 new...

It was already discontinued since February 2012 of this year, you need to read a few pages back that as I had already clarified regarding that topic awhile ago. (with evidence straight from Audio-technica's HQ mouth)

And that's because they are already EOL-ed. They actually used to go for around USD 300 dollars brand new on many websites like Accessory Jack/Bluetin, but it seems that streets prices online for these have jumped quite abit ever since they were discontinued in Japan, so perhaps due to low stock/shortages everywhere online retailers marked up those prices, as usual when there's higher demand and lower supply, these events do happen.

So.. now I got to baby my CK10 like crazy since they're fantastic I just wanna keep them forever :\

Maybe I should just shelf them, keep them as they are and move on.

 

Now, which one of these would you choose to substitute the CK10?

  • ATH-CK100PRO
  • PFE 232
  • j-phonic K2 SP
  • UE900
  • Heir 4.A (also Ai)
  • JH5 
  • Or any other ideas?

I wouldn't call it gateway. I ended up getting the JH5 and moved on to desktop gear. Although I did pick up a FX700 last week to use at work but main focus is still my home set up. I do remember that and that was a fun time but doubt anything like that will be done by me again :p

I have the JH5 and they sound pretty different where one is more analytic in signature and the other is a bit warm and slight bass emphasis although the JH5 is the better earphone no doubt.

having not actually heard any of those iems, from what i've read, the 4ai is pretty close in signature, although slightly warmer.
