April fools?

They do poke out quite a bit... but they still sound fantastic! See pic.500

Tbh, I do think they are kinda sexy.  I've got a tab open just so I can stare at them.

Wow lol.

I wonder if it actually produces sound

 

post #110 of 303

I'm not sure, but it would seem to make sense, that more drivers and x-overs, more complexities in the sound. In room speakers, simpler things are, better off you are. A two way or three way gets the job done if done right. But, 20 drivers? Sounds to me like they want to be Mr. BIG in IEMs. And, as with Rolex watches, set the price high, and rich folks will buy. Oh, well, to each his own!

"while driver number 20 emits a frequency that acts as an aphrodisiac, for a truly invigorating audio experience."

Anyways enough of trolling.

We all had our fun.

Still think it's funny how people were seriously questioning the specs.

"All you non-believers, shame on you. The CT20 is definitely real, and I had the chance to hear it - it's awesome. Save your sarcasm for another time.

 

The highs are slightly cleaner than the Senn HD850s, and soundstage imaging is simply without equal, although the size of the soundstage is still surpassed by the AKG K1001s. Being balanced armatures, they don't have the same bass slam of the Audez'e LCD-3s or the Denon D9000s, but they're definitely very precise, and better in bass detail. The mids are simply amazing, airy sounding but retaining the richness of the Sony R11s. Overall I would say they're about on par with the Sony Qualia 010 mk2. Best of all, they don't have the amplification requirements of the AKG K341s or the Beyerdynamic T2s. If you have the money, skip the Ultrasone Ed. 11s and get these. Save the money on ear-expanding surgery. You'll need it.

 

I tested the headphones with the Duke Nukem Forever soundtrack. I drove them with a brand-new Singlepower Extreme Platinum (built about two weeks ago) and my Palm Foleo."

 

 

This is win right here.

You made my day sir.

They have a CT20-m model for those who have normal sized ears. Instead of being flush with your ears, they stick out about 0.5 cm. This is the style I got. You haven't heard music until you've heard them through the CT20s. I'll admit, it's a bit odd for them to announce on April Fools day... but if you guys want I can take more shots. What's with all the skepticism?

meanwhile, elsewhere on the interwebs, a competition is on, with the usual listing of the cool obscure as a top 10:

Interesting indeed, but I can honestly say even if I was a multi-millionaire, I would never pay $7,000 for a pair of IEMs. Would I pay $7,000 for some audiophile home speakers? Yes indeed!! But never for some IEMs. I think my limit would be under $2,000 (and I'm being very general there, more like $1,200 or under). But as my dad would say, "if you like it I love it!"

post #117 of 303

Okay, I admit it! You guys got me! LOL ... You had me for a minute although in the back of my mind it didn't make much sense to me (especially after he said the mids weren't that good)...lol. Nice one @ Jude!!beerchug.gifdeadhorse.gifpopcorn.gif
