My CKN70 are being held up in LA customs yet once again so I should see those here earlier next week I hope.

Count me in on the New ATH sound, fan club too ! beerchug.gif

 

...would be hard leaving the old JVC sound, fan club though ! tongue.gif

 

 

OMG !  ...just had another eargasm with them CKN70 !   ...listening to Kelly Clarkson's Because of you.

What's the best way to pick up the ckn70 in the US?

I just bought one of them Meridian Explorer Dacs and the new CKN70 which I should get by next week. The UE900 is interesting but a bit too spendy. I hope those will go on sale on Amazon like the TF10 special during Christmas..

 

I have no idea why these micro hd earphones. MH1C or the CKN earphones have these wacky cords. I can point out some much cheaper iems that have better cables. Makes no sense. But ultimately if the sound is right it will be worth the price to get one.

The easiest way to get one is get them from buyfromjapan on ebay.. It will be only $10 more so than getting it by using Tenso forwarding service and amazon.japan, so not much difference in price.

LoL I feel for her meng.

Nah !   ...she used to sleep at the doorway outside our bedrooms but since I shifted my burning activities to the computer station, she choose to sleep under the computer table.

 

Read somewhere that they need to be near human noises while sleeping (part of their pack instincts I guess)

They are certainly as microphonic as the SHE3580 cables and yes, you are right, I meant J cord design, the fact that one side has a longer sub cable makes it that much more tedious to coil them up for storage.

 

Amazing ! ...with just 24hrs burning, the sibilance has almost all gone away on them, just a tiny bit if played on the loud side.

Can't wait to hear your take on them CKN70, at the rate they're improving, they are rapidly catching up to (and most likely overtaking) my all time favourite micro HD driver iems, the FXD80.

 

I am waiting for the FIIO E12 to arrive and dying to see how the CKN70 and WS99 scales with them, ...talk about a sonic overload ! basshead.gifbeerchug.gif

I'm gonna get a pair of CKN70s too. The CKN50s sounded terrific. Easily one of the best IEMs I've heard. I did notice AT had a new sound sig and it was amazing. Everything sounded natural with great definition and fullness. The mids were real to life and the treble splashed like water. They were only sibilant because of their revealing nature. Too bad the cable still seems crappy.

Meng and i thought i be trolling, these namebrands and their micro driver iems be trollin' like a felon. I guess its true that there can never be a "perfect" iem or headphone cuz these companies always like to troll us with something. Guess that's how they make their dough.$$$$$

Hmmm, you learn something new everyday, never knew that about dogs. Well i guess now you have a even better excuse to keep them new audio gears rolling in so you can make that lil' "sniffer" boss of yours happy. biggrin.gif

 

Great to hear that harshness/ sibilance goes away after such a short amount of burn-in. Man ATH is heading at the right direction in sonic speed this year. Crazy!!!

Was deciding on the CKS1000, then the CKN70 showed up... I've already gotten a CKN50 but damn...

 

Here's hoping Dsnuts will do a comparison between CKN70 and CKS1000 when he gets his CKN70. :)

Curious to see if you think double the price ends up yielding double the sound quality.
