My CK100Pro has been with me for about a week now, will be posting my unboxing + listening impressions shortly in a dedicated thread. smily_headphones1.gif

So Bokyung when are yours arriving? biggrin.gif We need your CK100Pro vs XBA-4 comparison!

@evolutionx: Hey there, glad to see another fellow countrymate around here owning the CK100Pros as well. Sorry you mind if I ask you do you happen to surf around HardwareZone? I actually posted an enquiry to you on kiteki's thread, but you seemed to ignore me. redface.gif

Okay my review is finally up. biggrin.gif You guys should see it on the first page. Long-time lurker and infrequent poster around here, so my apologies if I don't respond that quickly in that thread, but you guys can always post questions on my thread and I will try to answer each of your enquiries about the CK100PRO.

Cheers.

Hi Haonan, great review and sorry for not responding.  I have been enjoying your great knowledge on all gadgets on hwz forums, including J-phone, cameras, laptops, head-fi, etc.     I love all kinds of gadgets and I can share your enthusiasm as well.    Thanks for sharing and hope to catch up one day.

Not that flat, a bit v-shaped.

I've been looking for a CK100PRO frequency response graph for some time now, so is it a more balanced or v-shaped sound?  Where exactly is there an emphasis in the frequencies - if any?

 

post #54 of 59

The problem i see with that response is the fact that 300-2k get the least emphasis and this is where most of the music resides. The bass boost looks really adequate as there isn't too much bass, the boost is small. Treble is boosted, but looks to be a tiny bit much, may be a bit too forward at times. 

 

I like fact that the impedance phase is the opposite of the frequency response, so boosting impedance to a certain level may yield a sweetspot of balance.

I've been preaching the AT CK10 sermon since 2008. I'm devout. Who knows, I may go for it. I thought I was done, I really did. My wife did, too. She was happy then.

Might buy W3000 if I have a chance.

Thank you for the detailed explaination Inks.  I understand better now.

Never heard them ,but according to the FR measurement +/- 3dB in 20Hz..10kHz is pretty flat.

 

Most great headphones don't get close. 

 

I can't understand japanese, but the graph has  1/24 dB smoothing,

then there may actually be some narrow peaks higher than shown.

Looking into the ck100pro, as I am desiring a deeper bass extension than in my rockit r50, without sacrificing detail, sounstage, and sparkle. They are definitely much more expensive though! I do love the r50s, especially the value! I would like to see the ck100 pro vs xba4 as well!! My search continues... but why do I get the sense it will never be over? 😜
