Tips for AT CK10's

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 

Wanted to pick up some more tips for my CK10's, and didn't know what I should be looking for.  Will the Comply's for the CK7's work?  What kinds are good to pair with these IEM's?  Are custom molded ear pieces worthwhile, or do they not offer a sufficient seal?

I will look into the CK10 appreciation thread. I personally like monster triflanges because it's easier to take them off my ears with them and the comfort/isolation is good.

tri flanges trimmed down to double flanges.  same level of isolation with more comfort.

I also think sensorcom tips will work, they're one of the most comfortable tips i've used with some lubrication added.

Shure EA306, Monster triflange and Sony hybrids are popular.

Check the CK10 thread too. http://www.head-fi.org/forum/thread/467576/audio-technica-ath-ck10

depends on the size of your ears.  i personally cut off the top, smallest part.

If you enjoy foamies, I recommend the Comply T-130 in black of course.  They have a wider nozzle than the T-100.  And I feel increase soundstage and bass, while reducing the hot nature of the ck-10's treble.  They were made for the PFE but fit on the AT's just fine. smily_headphones1.gif

Awesome, that's exactly what I was looking for.  How do you clean those?  H2O2?

I'm spoiled redface.gif.  I always buy six at a time and just replace them.  But yes you can use hydrogen peroxide to clean them.  Though every time I've done so, they never retain their pliable nature.

About how long does a set last?  I wear them almost every day for varying lengths of time; sometimes gym, but mostly home/work.  Once they're in, I prefer to leave them in.  And I generally will qtip with a bit of water before I put them in.

Just remember to trim them before use.........lol. Oh and yes trim the stem (I cut it at about half the lenght) because otherwise it's too long.

I replace each set every month or so depending on the usage of each earphone...YMMV.  Love the blacks though.  Don't show as much wear and wax deposits as the greys do, thus longer wear periods.

I will keep that in mind on the next set I order.  At $5 a month, they'd be well worth it.
