ljokerl, what's your opinion on ck90pro compared to re-zero? I love my re-zero's mid and treble, but always wish it has more bass. I'm not a bass head though, just find the re-zero's bass is a little lacking for my taste. Will the ck90pro suits me more?

Yup, theyre just OOS. I sent mine in for RMA recently (left side went out) and they didnt have any M1s in stock to send a replacement . They did graciously offer to send an M2 instead but I refused. Theyre expecting more stock next month (and hopefully another preorder discount)

A lot of retailers do that when it is out of stock. They remove the listing until it goes back on stock. Although I probably would have taken the M2 not knowing what the M1 sounds like ;p

The CK90Pro definitely has more bass impact but it's armature-type bass. Very quick attack & decay, 'snappy' if you will. The CK90Pro is darker-sounding than the RE0/REZERO (by quite a margin) but has similar range (i.e. good extension on either end). It is less 'sparkly' though and doesn't sound quite as airy (but still gives a good sense of space). It would be a bit of a departure from the RE0/REZERO, no doubt about that, and not a very typical BA on the whole. I've been meaning to sell mine for months now (who needs two dual-BA earphones by ATH?) but each time I end up trying it again and keeping it 'for a bit longer'. Very interesting earphone, no doubt, but not for everyone just like the other ATH BAs.

 

Oh and you may want to check out mvw2's latest writeup here.

Ah, thanks for that. Very good to know.

Oh ya just a lil heads-up, would recommend to add in Regular Monster JAMz to review (which i seen comments on how different they are from LiL JAMz, Which i would like to find out more since i only had Regular JAMz and probably not going to grab lil JAMz " class="bbcode_smiley" height="" src="http://files.head-fi.org/images/smilies//wink.gif" title=";)" width="" />

 

Secondly, I am thinking of going for my first-ever Higher End IEMs for the first time, For now i am thinking of either 1) Klipsch X10 2) Shure SE535 3) MTPG 4) MTPC 5) UE TF-10 so perhaps you might review them also if you haven planned any of the above for a review. Thanks alot and Your review's are great, My head is turning dizzy after all the reading on this post and your 47 headphones review~ (*_*)

 

*And Yes Would like to hear your opinions on Aurvana In-Ear 2 as the pair are my current emergency back-up pair of IEMs =)

To be honest I only grabbed the Lil' Jamz because I like the slim form factor and the price was right. Some stiff competition in the $70-90 range nowadays with a lot of imported phones keeping up with Monster's own Turbines... not sure if I expect the Lil' Jamz to compete. Yet to open the box though so time will tell.

 

I've got the TF10 in review right now, along with a few of the high-end universals you aren't considering (W3, W2, SM3, Monster MD). My head is dizzy just contemplating the amount of writing I have to do once I start putting my notes in paragraph form... yikes.

 

Aurvana in-ears look great and I've been wanting to pick up a set ever since ClieOS put up his review. A price drop or decent sale would probably push me to it.

Great thread , and the one who sold me to get RE-ZERO as my first 'serious' IEM (for less than100$)

 

will you be adding perhaps SM3 in your list ?

 

Thanx again

Thanks, and good choice with the RE-ZERO 

 

The SM3 is currently in review. You can find a list my upcoming reviews at the bottom of post #8, below the chart.

post #821 of 16803

Oh i hadn't seen it , so thanx for pointing me there

 

Again , thanx for such a thorough and painstaking review...I am sure i ain't the only one who benefited from this thread

 

Expect some more questions when i decide to upgrade and move to the 200$ area (i will wait to see the feedback on the RE-262...)

 

Cheers

post #822 of 16803

Thanks for the update!  I'm glad somebody got the chance to try both the CX280 and CX281 so I don't have to.

Pretty much in agreement with a majority of the review, particularly the CX280's airiness and occasional lack of intimacy, though I do get the feeling you were hearing more bass than I am.  Then again, the lack of sub-bass weight per your description may be what contributes to that perception.

 

Anyway, if I were to upgrade, I'd probably go for something similar to the CX280.  It's not a perfect canalphone by any stretch of the imagination, but it does many things to my liking.  Not exactly sure what a proper upgrade would be but I'm sure the answer will lie somewhere in this thread (if it doesn't already).

The $99 refurb IE7's might be just what you're after.

post #824 of 16803

Just out of curiosity but do you have any interest in the PFE Perfect Bass? However I'm assuming the only real difference between that and the one you have reviewed (assuming you have reviewed it) is the different filter.

That's what I was afraid of.

I'll more likely than not get a pair someday, though I'm still curious as to what Sennheiser (and others) have in store in the next year.
