Also its treble is easier going than the CK10. Plus the housings are a monstrosity compared to the diminutive CK10.

Thanks, I found the IM02s at a significant discount to the Australian pricing and have ordered them now. Will see how I go! The very sharp top end yet controlled bottom when positioned correctly was what I loved the most about the CK7s; besides that, I could use the EQ of the SB E5 to boost the bottom end to a very sweet point. 

 

(Sorry for my weird thread jump in, the only thing that the CK7s might have in common with the CK10s might be that they're both discontinued, yet loved by many. Also they both go straight into the ears without the over ear attachment.)

They are definitley classics. Nothing else like them out there.
Thanks, will try them out soon.

I recommend Sony hybrid tips and as deep a fit as you can muster.

i have some fake sony hybrids here , with RE-272 and K3003 it will be an interesting comparison

how did you like them CK10 shane ?

The CK10 pretty much ruined any love I had for warm and bassy iems. Around the time I bought them, I owned the um3x and merlin. While the ck10 was ultimately a little too bright for me long term, it definitley put me on the path to more neutral iems with high levels of resolution.

yeah, without a doubt, using the CK10s for 4 years or so massively skewed my preference in sound sig.  anything that isn't close to neutral and doesn't have a high level of resolution won't cut it for me.

I'm still lovin these iems. I use my shure 846 as my main earphone but put these in from time to time..I like using them at bed time I find them very comfy.the only thing about these I find is that they take a little more power from my ipod to run..which is really no big deal.does anyone else find they need to turn the volume up a little higher with these? Other then that they are great..I don't take them out of the house to often. I don't want to wreck them because they are hard to find anymore.they do pop up on the fs here from time to time though.even though I have the 846 and the Roxanne and some others they still have my favorite sign.
