The included clip didn't seem to help either. The sound is sooo good to my ears though after being used to my FX101s. 

 

Are you are wearing it correctly, right side cable draped behind your neck? That shouldn't happen unless the whole cable is too short for you, which is highly unlikely (unless you're a 7 foot giant biggrin.gif).

Yeah, turns out I had the clip the wrong way somehow redface.gif

 

Haven't tried walking anywhere with them yet but seems like it would be much better. I did have the right side cable draped behind my neck yes. I'm 6 foot 2 tongue.gif

 

Where is it best to place the clip? Closer to left side earbud, right earbud or in the middle? I plan on putting my phone in my right pocket and plugging them in there.

 

Damn if the next CKN model is better than the CKN70 then I'll be blown away. Was disappointed when I bought some of those Sony hybrid style tips from eBay and the didn't even fit! Not too keen on the Sennheiser double flanges I got either so I stole the medium sized earbuds from my brothers Beats and they seem to work pretty well biggrin.gif. Anyone got a link to any medium sized eartips that definitely fit the CKN70s? I want to experiment and try other tips.

Clip goes on the main cable. Also make sure that right cable goes really far around and over your shoulder. The part where the cable splits should be touching your neck.

 

Your Sony Hybrids don't fit on the CKN70s? Strange, mine go on easily and fit perfect. Maybe you got fakes.

post #8374 of 32858

Yeah, I think I got fakes but then it's trying to find a pair without buying them in a pack with multiple sizes that I won't even use.

+1. The real sony hybrids should fit perfectly.

Just got the a900x today, not sure about them yet. (probably need some break in). Did some comparison listening quickly with my Senn 650's...The AT seems to have more treble energy, a bit "clearer" throughout, for lack of a better description). Bass somewhat more focused on AT, but there and very engaging on the Senns. Don't find them to have "veil" like some do (with the HiSound Anniversary...I did feel like they did using just an ipod), and somehow the music just pulls me in more so far. While the AT have that clarity and high frequency energy, I don't find anything missing on the Senns, and, so far, prefer them (in the 10 minutes or so I've listened).

Just out of interest, is there anything in the same price range as the CKN70s that match it or very closely match it but have a Y-cord?

Good one WAYNE. beerchug.gif

 

They are indeed pretty similar, esp. how those crazy mids are presented, but the bass quantity is a bit more on the CKN70s. Didn't i tell you to look into the FXD80s, don't underestimate those tbh.

post #8380 of 32858

Shall have to look into FXD80s. Anything else I should look at?

That's it - your cut of the profit has now decreased! tongue.gif

 

Seriously though, I assume the 80's have the same form factor as the 70's. Now that I have re-discovered how awesome the 70's sound with different tips, the only reason I am going to continue on selling them is due to the fact that they don't seem to stay in my particular ear canals very well (and, I simply have too much gear thanks to the usual guilty parties lol).

If you want a more balanced iem, the 70's ($50 to you!) are definitely the way to go! biggrin.gif

post #8383 of 32858

Just popping a question - FXD70s vs CKN70s impressions? Curious between the two as I have the FXD80s as well...somewhere (very messy) and was thinking of downgrading later. Or am I just lazy/stupid and comparisons are already posted up somewhere?

 

Also, got the ATs in the mail today, haven't opened them yet so no idea what to expect. Blue pairs ~~

The FXD80's are very good. Mids seem a little recessed in comparison to the CKN70's, but I still love the SQ of 80's.
