Definitely agree with your first experience. BA drivers are very very different in their response compared with dynamic and CK10 are definitely one of the best implementation of dual knowles drivers. I have tried multiple earphones in the similar and lesser price range - dynamic, single BA, dual BA and for my money CK10 delivers the best sound to fit my requirements. You'll fall in love with their clarity, speed and transparent nature.

Check out IM02 which I found at very very similar in sound to CK10. I got them recently and don't miss the CK10 anymore!!

Thank you for the recommendation! I hear that they are quite harsh though? I found the CK10 to be quite smooth. Maybe I need to try them out myself somewhere. No way for me to do that here in Toronto :(

By harsh do you mean IM02 having too much sibilance at the top end making it too bright on the ears? Just wondering because I would describe IM02 smoother than CK10 by all means - could be just a different choice of words though.

I haven't heard the IM02 mind you, I was going by what I read from the various threads? Too many conflicting impressions so I don't know what to think at this point.

 

is the IM02 suitable for contemporary or perhaps top40 music? The CK10 sounded good with whatever I tired.

I'm very glad to hear that you have been satisfied. So have I. It's just that I'm a comfort nut and while the CK10 does disappear, its metal shield rubs my ears the wrong way.

Found a used pair of CK10 for a very good price, so I ordered it. Can't wait to see what the fuss is all about. Had the IM02 and really loved it, regretted selling it away. Coming from the IM02, what should I expect from the CK10? Is it an improvement over the IM02 or more of the same? (I'd be happy either way!)

Thanks in advance! smily_headphones1.gif
