The CKN70s that I got from Danny were burned in over 700 hours and the treble is still overwhelming and harsh, causing the tone/timber to be inaccurate (e.g. snare drums and toms don't sound like they should).  Is this a faulty pair?  I have Philips SHE3590s on the way and will try those tips on them to see if they improve.  

 

I also have the Carbo Tenore on the way; can't wait to compare them.

Could be the tips. The first thing that came to mind with your description was what I've experienced on IEMs that were burned in at too high volume for too long and became distressed.

Did it myself on a semi-cheap pair as a limit testing experiment. Took them from generally smooth and pleasant to metallic ice picks. Only took 18 hours on jlabs burn-in on a little too high volume.

Hard to say for sure though.

Really looking forward to that!

I practically chose getting the Tenores instead of CKN70 so its gonna be interesting to see if I've missed anything. tongue.gif

Thanks in advance.

Looking forward to this comparison too as I will probably pick up the CKS99 in the next month.

At medium volume people can still hear my COR150. To be honest it's not even loud for me, but the isolation is terrible I guess on COR150. So I can't listen to music very loud on them, any tips?

This. I don't know how people can prefer the S500's over them tbh.

What did you expect at a such low price point mate?

There isn't much you can do except try as many tips as you can, and see if there are any vents you can tape up.

Beyond that, there really isn't much you can do. Sell them on.

Are you wearing them over ear or down?

post #10511 of 32866

Down. 

post #10512 of 32866
Try wearing them over ear. These are designed to fit better over ear. Use the cable guides too. I strictly wear these this way since I get a better fit.

An AMAZING bass head portable headphone is the Pioneer HDJ-500's!  They are soo clear and have great detail!  Only downside is the treble is just the faintest bit grainy but that can be fixed with a bit of EQ'ing...

Old but gold!



Got the M11+ plugged in at the moment to my BH coz those are the ones I'm keeping for myself. They are pretty nice to listen to, not Carbo Tenore standards by any means of sound measurement. Still considering I got them for $10.99 its a pretty good deal.

Burn in time! Again... tongue.gif

Ehhh of course the CKN70 is more refined than the S500s but not by THAT much. It's an upgrade for sure but not a massive one. Plus the S500s are just too fun to mod and stuff. So yes i prefer the S500s over the crappy cable of these CKN70s. tongue.gif
