CK100Pro is more revealing of the two to my ears.

The reviews says that the IM02 are more detailed...so i don't think that ther is no 'real' successor to the ck100pro

I actually found the CK100PROs too revealing at times, especially with poorly mastered/produced recordings. I know that happens with a lot of decent IEMs, but I liked how the IM03s were more forgiving but still detailed.

interesting....i was afraid that the ck100pro would not work well with my admittedly inconsistent library...

 

what about separation?

So it seems I'm still stuck with the ck100pro as an option (or top-tiers, but they are too expensive :( ).

Separation was decent from what I remember. For those who are still interested in the CK100PROs have you tried looking on kakaku? I can read Japanese so drop me a PM if you want me to look for you

I have been checking back on kakaku regularly, waiting for a price drop, before it was discontinued.

 

Is it still available? Used?

The best place to look is Yahoo Japan auctions.  I got the original CK100s from there for a reasonable price.

Still it is one amazingly detailed and accurate sound. After neglecting it for so long it takes times for me to get used to its what comes across as a brighter sound but it did not take time why at one point I considered this the one to rule them all.

 

While I sill believe it is a great IEM that one must at least try once but it is one that will need to have good recording and because of this unforgiving nature it will be of limited used. Nevertheless it is unique IEM of its own and it nothing else I own can really challenge what it does.

They are super cheap now used from any of the big electronic stores in Japan.

Fujiya-Avic has a lot of used stuff at reasonable prices. http://www.fujiya-avic.jp/. It's only in Japanese but if you know a little it's really easy to navigate. The google translate function might also work on it. Most of these sites are Japanese only but they are pretty easy to navigate. I see a few CK100pros on fujiya-avic from time to time. If you need any help looking for stuff, hit me up.You can use tenso to forward anything you buy.

I'll keep looking.

How much is it currently going for?

 

Hiragana and Katakana really isn't enough.;)

I saw a used one maybe a week or two ago for around $200USD. The housings weren't in the best of shape but knowing how well built these things are seems like that wouldn't be a problem at all. With the situation with the yen right now I imagine that you might be able to find an amazing deal on a used pair. Great!  Shouldn't be a problem navigating the sites then!:) If I see anything I'll send over a link.
