Yes...I realize that. Just thought I'd throw that out there since people here tend to want as much info as possible when making recommendations.

Why would that be dangerous? I suppose if an airplane with failed engines is rapidly descending upon my lawn it might be, but otherwise? lol

For the wear style, is the bold one the preferred one?

Joker,

 

It seems to me that I finally understand what i want and i finally decided. I will pick the PR401.

 

Hearing to CKM55 today with very attention i see what i like on their sound - is the sparkle highs and the bass (i don't know if is mid bass, but is from drums of bands like Pink Floyd, Dire Straits, Eagles...). But i hear too the harsh highs and sibilance on them, and now i understand what these words mean, hehehe. It's good to see that my ears have detected these weakness of my IEM, because i while back i can't hear this things or ignored it. I'm very new to sound and don't know very much.

 

I look to emphasis on treble, bass and great instrumental separation. The ECCI PR401 seems to have this and i have a feeling that i don't will be dissaponted with them because of good reviews around there, include your review. It's is proballly much better than my actual IEM, i have no doubt of that.

 

Thank for your multi-review, it's the most complete review i see around here.

That's not a good thing for you. Now you start down the slippery slope... sorry about your wallet!

Great choice! Hopefully you'll be able to listen to the CKM55 and PR401 side by side to see how they differ. There's really no better way to get down into the thick of things than with comparative listening.

True fact! In sound, there's no way better to compare than hear side-by-side. That's why i think is so hard to decide for a new headphone or IEM.

 

I will post here telling of what i think about PR401 and how much he is better than CKM55.

 

And Aflac, my wallet got threatened in the first listen with CKM55, hahaha. Since then, i got addicted to look for the sound nirvana like everyone.

I agree.  no better way than to compare side by side.  However the wallet takes a bit of a beating.  Its also worth keeping in mind Jokers impression of the IEMs as you hear them.  I.e you'll get to understand what joker considers to have too much/little bass, forward/recessed mids etc.  This in turn should make future purchases much easier.

Just wanted to thank Joker for all the work he's put into this. It's been very helpful. I've pretty much decided on the CC51. I'm going to sleep on it, but that's my decision. And yes I'll be careful with the shirt clip. :-P
