But... it never has been comfortable for me.

That's a shame about the comfort. I bought mine in 2010, based on your review and have been very satisfied. I have large ear canals and they just disappear inside - can barely tell that they are there.

[/quote I don't think you will regret it. Give them a little time. Specially if your coming from a darker sq. I've have lots come and go including the w4 r.. 535. Ue900 and so on. But since I've had these the thought has never crossed my mind to get rid of them. I don't use them all the time only because if something happens to them they are really hard and expensive to find Lol but when I do its such a treat smily_headphones1.gif

I am into a lot of rock, specifically progressive like mars volta and tool etc where a lot is happening and I want all the instruments to be crispy clear.

 

I have had loads of headphones but all of them have never been able to handle solos very well like it sounds harsh on my ears.

 

Would anyone recomend these or a similar brand for what I want? They are discontinued in the UK so maybe impossible to get them but I heard they were great.


I have an amp for any lacking bass. I just want all the mid range and upper range instruments to be super crispy clear. Bass isn't so important but I like a good soundstage.

well the cx10 is rather spectacular treble wise, quiet probably the best treble of any BA IEM ever but its pretty prominant and it takes no prisoners.  if you feed it crap, especially if you feed it crappy abrasive, harsh treble it will take an ice pick to your ears.  just you mention things sounding harsh so im thinking it could well be your source material thats the problem.  if so getting the ck10 would be a very bad idea.

Check out the Etymotic ER-4S as well. It and the CK10 really require reference plane (deep) fit to portray the treble accurately. When you get the right fit, both are pretty special and perhaps unmatched in treble.

try finding here a used RE-272

i have had mine 3 years now , and will never sell it

i also dig tool/mv etc so you will dig the sound - having also an amp solves the lean/small bass thing

if lucky, you could get one here for 200$ , no need to shell out 600$ for dita etc

cheers
