Well, this is open to interpretation .One might say that if you got one and it's legit you'll be saving $25. It's one of those glass half full or half empty things :tongue_smile:  This whole thing was kinda weird coz usually if it's just a limited amount discount you get something like crossed off list price, the amount you're saving below and the current discounted price and this had nothing like this. Anyway, technically I didn't stop anyone from buying one - just advised people not to rush even though I personally jumped the gun coz I figured for 14 bucks I'm not really risking much.

I could get Sennheiser CX 685 or those new ATH-SPORT3 BK for around the same price ( 45 € ) . Hmm I was kinda settled for CKX5 already but now I really don't know anymore. And there aren't any reviews out for those new SPORT3 yet.

 

Well I have the CKP200 which the Sport1 is the new model of. The CX685 in head to head has a better sound than the CKP200 but not a big difference. The Sport3 should be the best sounding of bunch plus a good case(waterproof) and the CKX5 again is not over the ear nor IPX rated. SonicFuel line is not the SonicSport line and not washable/sweat resistant and doesn't come with a clip like the Sport3 does. If they are really for running and sweating etc then those features should come in handy.

 

AT is pretty reliable in their specs giving an indication of what they think performs better. The Sport3's 10-25,000 bests the CKX5's 15-22,000 plus AT is solid in providing improvement in newer models. A safe bet the current top sport model will sound better than the entry model of the Sonicfuel line. Besides over the ear killing more microphonics, the form factor more similar to the M6, Westone/Shure etc. should be better. Joker can chime in on which form factor is good for sports/active stuff.

Yeah, I am strongly leaning towards those sport3 now, especially because you provided me some very strong points. Over the ear is better than fin (for microphonics), IPX certificate and they are smaller. Thanks again for your feedback.

I think I'll grab a pair as well. Just listening to my CKP200's and they always seem to impress even vs. my reference Tenore, S5's and other higher level phones. Should still be that enjoyable listen with better SQ. AT has done well lately with an update to the house sound that is very fun and friendly and holds it's draw so you don't get tired of it. The case is nice as well esp. an outside pocket which, for me, will be usable.

 

They are my current avatar also since they are quite easy on the eyes :biggrin:! That doesn't hurt either!

A new pic,from e-earphone japan, of them in the package now that they are in stock...

They really do look good. This design is for over the ear only though, right? Can't be worn straight down ?

post #14142 of 14599

The housings would work flipped for straight down but the problem would be the ear guide portion which most likely limits them to over the ear.

 

I, myself, am not too fond of the memory wire portion. I thought about the Sport2 since it is an odd 28ohm model and is also quite a handsome little bastard :) that looks quite comfy/easy to fit.


Tempting but you leave some SQ and the case on the table. Still take the 2 over the CKX5 as it has the clip, new quieter cord, waterproof rating, and a flusher fit. Still has the new 10mm driver and should at least match the CKX5 SQ if not be slightly better. This is also replacing the C-chip design of the older model(http://www.audio-technica.com/cms/headphones/a7b44679edb6aba6/index.html) which one would hope improved over it.

That it's a bit harsh/uneven in the treble but otherwise very capable, especially considering the price.

I picked a random seller with high reputation as the one I got my first pair from is one of the few who still has the standard price but I'll report when or if I receive my pair. Coz if it all turns out well a TX2 for 14 bucks will be an insane bargain. 

 

Might have been some sort of temporary pricing issue/error in a distributor feed, which would affect all sellers using the feed. My bet is it's a legit TX2, which is a hell of a deal (assuming it gets shipped out to you).

Yeah, you're probably right. And I just got a refund from the seller and he cancelled the order saying that he has only one pair left and it's broken, which is obviously a blatant lie as he had listed more than 10 available and didn't sell any more, so most likely a pricing error.

I just rolled with it and accepted the cancellation coz I'm not in the mood to argue with sellers who act like kids and feel the need to lie instead of just explaining the situation.

Makes sense, unfortunately. No deal of the year this time...
