So now I finally have in my possession a burnt-in and non-defective CKR9. earfonia was on the money with this one! I don't know what the CKR10 sounds like (or how much better), but a burnt in CKR9 is airy, full, and quite exquisite sounding!!! And very refined. Now this one came straight from Audio Technica in Japan, so I can say I'm hearing this earphone the way they meant for it to be heard. Just wonderful!

Both 9's and 10's are really good sounding AT's.  9's have good air and 10's are lush and thick.  Bass is to die for on both.  Surprisingly, the vocals on both are done very well.  AT has up'd their game.

Slight derailment, but has anybody heard of/tried 'Citronic EP740 Dual Driver In Ear Monitors' here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Citronic-EP740-Dual-Drive-In-Ear-Monitor-Earphones-black-/181440509993?pt=UK_AudioVisualElectronics_HomeAudioHiFi_Headphones&hash=item2a3eb27829

 

Supposedly with: Neodymium dual drivers; 7mm speaker for high/mid frequency and 10mm speaker for low frequency.

 

For less than £15 on ebay, and £8.45 on Juno Records site, worth trying does anybody think?

Is it worth it to have the 10s too? Is the difference really that much? If you say yes, I won't get the 10 until the price drops significantly more though.

I don't think so. I have the 10 and don't need the 9 and would feel the same other way around. Reminds me of how the FXZ100 and 200 were. I preferred the 100 over the 200 and same could apply here.

That's all I need to hear. Thank you DannyBai (he hasn't steered me wrong yet)! :beerchug:

congratulations on verifying a good discovery with your own ears!!! i look forward to sharing the magic of either the 9 or 10 down the road.

whats the best place to order them from?

I think Amazon japan drblue. Just put it in your wish list and check back weekly to see how much they drop in price. Maybe cdjapan too.

Here's my comparison between the Havi B3Pro1 and the Vsonic VSD3S:
