So I have finally decided to move on from the q-JAYS (which I still love) and try to buy the famed Audio Technica.
Reasons I want to upgrade to CK10:
-The itch to upgrade
-Hopefully a more refined, detailed sound
-After reading various impressions by |joker| and other members.
Budget ~ $300 USD (incl shipping and duty - which can be quite substantial to India)
Music preferences - Mostly trance with jazz, house and flavors of rock thrown in for good measure.
Sonic preferences - transparency, detail, speed, well defined bass and treble richness, looking for more quality rather than quantity in the lower end.
Earphone experience - LOVED the q-JAYS, wasn't too impressed with HJE900
What I need from you guys is head to head sound only comparisons (only from people who have heard them both please) along with the music you use them for, and any negatives you can think about the CK10. I plan to buy these for atleast 12-18 months of future listening, before upgraditis hits again.
I searched a lot and read the thread below, but it wasn't really very conclusive:
Any/All thoughts would be appreciated.
