It was clearly evident. The double flange tip gives much more fullness to the sound because it has a much wider bore.

 

It is funny to me that AT would go all out on the actual tuning of these earphones yet completely overlook the cord and just use their stock tips. Sony is guilty of doing this as well.  As far as I am concerned the stock tips are no good on these earphones. I will try it again once I get a full burn in but I highly doubt the stock tips will give out the best sound.

 

You are our representative here.  In the name of all of us in this thread, you should write both companies and let them know about the tips and cable issues.

Lol. Ya no doubt.. I have a hard time understanding why AT would use such a cord on these earphones.. Believe me the sound makes up for the shortcomings but man if they actually thought about the cord and actually put in some decent soft wider bore tips..I bet you guys they actually tested out other tips with these earphones. We are talking about guys that have been in the industry for over 50 plus years of audio. If these guys don't know that I have no idea who would..

 

The difference in the stock restrictive tips and anything with a wider bore is immediate.. It seems much like Sony. These guys have literally one ear tip design. I have not seen one AT earphone have different type tips. I suppose adding some different tips in the package would add to the overall cost. Maybe these guys know that real audio guys will use other tips anyway..In any case. Other tips are highly recommended.

They sell the Auveo tips at RadioShack in individual sizes now instead of the variety package for those who don't care for the double flanges.

Go for it.

 

OK, so the MH1C has better bass than the CKN70?  Because as far as balance within the low end and with the rest of the frequency spectrum is concerned, the MH1C is pretty much exactly where I want it.  I could do with a little more bass or a very little less, but not too far in either direction.

Try out a MH1C. It is right between the higher end detail of something like a CKN70 but with a much more emphasized lower end of something like the FX101.. I think that is what you are looking for. Give them a go. Those are great for the cost. The cords on them are not so good either but it is manageable.

I already have hehe, ordered the CKN70s yesterday :)

Shouldnt the ckn70s provide enough bass like the fxz100?

Just ordered some of those double flange tips in medium as well.

Beware though... MH1c cable is absolutely dire!

 

I havent had such bad cable experience with any of my IEMs.

I wouldn't worry about the bass end of the CKN70.

If you went from the Fx101 to the CkN70s you would be blown away. Those earphones are okay, but I imagine they sound terrible in comparison.

How do the ckn70 compare to the Sony XBA-3 or XBA-30?

So, I use J. River to play audio on my computer. Currently I'm running through my ELE. I just realized I had my settings on Direct Sound which means it wasn't a direct connection. I just changed it to WASAPI and it sounds amazing! It's a HUGE difference! Sorry for going off topic :P
