Interesting, are the connectors on the cables the same as those UFL connectors you find on wifi cards in laptops? Those things transmit and receive 100mbps data bandwidths.
Null audio selling cable replacements for S$149 a set D:
I'm definitely liking the sound of these, a bit heavy on the pocket though :/
Hi ThatNzGuy, no those are actually MMCX pin-connectors, just like the ones found on many current Shure IEMs. Except that the pin is reversed so you can't use those cheap Fiio-made replacements on the Audio-technicas at all. So far the only quality third-party replacement cable I know is only being made by Null Audio, for their Lune MK-II cables. I'm not really into or a believer of high-ends cables stuff so I did not purchase that since my default ones are still working fine at the moment and I like the build quality of the default cables, but at least now we know we have an alternative choice other than default original cables sold by Audio-technica (they charge 10,500yen for cable replacements in Japan).
Thanks for the comparison.
So you are saying that listening to mainstream-music with mediocre production quality sucks with the ck100pro?
I read about this in-ear being picky with sources. What about a sony z1050 with a fiio e11. could anyone guess?
last but not least, nhat_thanh, where did you get the ck100pro? couldnt find any online shops in the eu
Hi JohannLiebert, you can order this from either Bluetin or AccessoryJackif you are residing in EU and you cannot find a reliable place to buy these. The above-mentioned sites are definitely reliable as far as customer services goes (I have not tried them before as I have my own japanese contact in JP so I bought my pair from Fujiya-Avic previously) as there are already plenty of feedback about these online stores on Head-fi or anywhere else. Although for best cost-savings IMO if you are able to deal with japanese words and don't mind relying on a forwarding proxy middlemen, I will highly recommend you to go sign up for an account on Amazon.co.jp website and use Tenso's forwarding services to ship to your home country.
Hope the above helps.
