Well they didn't make it for consumer use. But luckily James decided to offer it at cost. It really is a steal.
So what I'm saying is, it's unlikely that changes will be made to it. At least no changes anytime soon.
The hell is this??? This version looks like it's on crack or speed meng. When i use it i stay classy with it. Not like this bastardized version. My god this thing is annoying as hell. haha
Did you use a clip??? Make it 2 clips at that.
Use one to clip near your shirt collar and the 2nd one on the mid stomach area of your shirt so the cable wouldn't bounce everywhere. Or you can just stick the entire cord inside your shirt. Problem solved. Unless you run shirtless........
J-cord iems are perfect for running to me.
I don't run (or more precisely, my knees don't run!), but iem's that I think might work:
1) VSD1. Worn over ear. And with supplied ear guides. Works great (even without ear guides) when riding bike (and very little wind noise).
2) Bassos (or Tenores). Very light and stay in ear well. (although I wouldn't use them for riding due to wind noise I'm sure).
I also always use cable clips (as Sf recommends).
no one has heard the AT CKM300?
it should be better than the basso!
People here have owned the CKM500 and the Basso and the Basso wins. So, it follows that the inferior CKM300 won't beat the Basso :)
So we will(in the fall) have a whole new series from AT. The Sonicfuel series topped off by the CKX9...
The ATH-CKX9iS and ATH-CKX9 offer exceptional audio quality and comfort, thanks to their newly developed, large 13.5 mm drivers that deliver surprisingly powerful, dynamic and immersive sound from an in-ear design, with exceptional clarity and detail. Both headphones have the same features except (as with all “iS” models) the ATH-CKX9iS adds a microphone and a cord-mounted remote for smartphones, iPhone, iPad and iPod, enabling users to answer calls or use voice-over controls.
Look to me like a mish-mash of a few things going on. The big driver like the CKS, the fit pieces like the Sonicsport CKP500, and the two color(except the black) flat cable like the fashion series CKF77.
CKX7(above) has dual layer 8mm diaphragm with different materials of different stiffness to attempt to help with both powerful lows and delicate highs. Also has ball joint type barrel similar to Vsonic phones so you can aim the tips to fit the ear better.
The CKX5 with basic single layer 8mm driver and normal cable w/o the new style plug. Still has the articulating nozzle. Not much else though.
We'll see how much they are and how good they turn out to be.
Hey just a heads up fellas. Anyone looking for a real good deal on a really solid built earphone that has good sound. These are a steal at this price.

So I'vee been A/Bing the CKN70 (with about 50 hours burn-in) to the RE-400 (with about four hours burn-in):
CKN70: A noticeably wider soundstage than the RE-400 (not significantly wider, but it's noticeable). Notes are a bit more thicker than the RE-400 (but not by much). Definitely more bass and treble is on the verge of being too harsh. This is marvelously refined sounding earphone (although the cable still bugs the hell out of me).
RE-400: A bit smaller soundstage, but the RE-400 clearly wins hands down in refinement, clarity, and details details details!! Someone described these as microscopic earphones. That person didn't lie. The RE-400 seems to slice right down to the heart of the notes. Female vocals (and male) are some of the most natural sounding I've heard. Notes are just a little bit shy of the 3-Dism of the CK70, but not by much. Yes, the CKN70 has the wider soundstage, but the RE-400 win in depth back and forth. I mean the notes are so rich, but detailed and clear, unlike the CKM500. There is better instrument separation in the re-400. And with all the clarity , the bass is still there and goes deep enought to hear every note. While these aren't bass monsters, the earphones is nowhere near bass deficient. Plenty of audible bass in this balanced and neutral earphone. I didn't want to like the Re-400, but it's irresistible! The timbre and imaging are mindblowing. This earphone belongs here in great finds, but you will be hard pressed to find a better sounding earphone at original $100 MSRP. I know some of you may be reluctant to try it because of fear of lack of bass, but it's there (about as much as the GR-7, but of better quality)
waynes world this is like a mixture of the HD70 with more weight and bass, better instrument separations, and way more detail. I hope more of you give this (and the H-200) a chance.
Both earphones are worthy, but even with the CKN70 being cheaper by $30, the Re-400 is clearly technically better.
^ Great impressions ericp, damn you're making me lust after these lil' buggers (was WAYNE would say) even mo'. Oh last time i check thought that devious WAYNE already got those H-200s.
Don't force him to get these Re-400s as well. haha You know he is weak will like that.
