No worries, I thought some hand exercises might be of use...

Do the upper mids smooth out in the CKN70s? I've been burning them for awhile, but i know they're not done yet. When it comes to high pitched vocals it almost hurts my ears, almost everything else has smoothed out though. Here's an example of what I mean, there's a part where he hits a really high note:

^ Sounds great on XBA-30, upper mids and highs are smooth and no harsh. smily_headphones1.gif

 

EDIT After listened to this song 7 times in a row I ended up getting the whole album, XBA-30 is so addictive. biggrin.gif

Man, can that guy get up there! At the 0:58, 2:02  and 3:24 marks he is at his wailing highest pitched best. Good test - especially straight out of the ele dac! Having said that, it sounded fine out of my iem's including my fxd70's (and I'm somewhat treble sensitive).

Its a pretty good album, Dance of the Manatee is the best song on there. Check out their newest album if you like their stuff.

I'm a little sensitive to treble myself, but these CKN70s have gotten me used to a bright sound. After the FXD80s were burned in they were never harsh. Hopefully that's the case with these IEMs.

About the EPH-100's though, aren't they supposed to be pretty great? What is it about them that you want to hear an improvement in?

lol who is that chick anyways? ooh we're on page 666.

and most importantly, I'll be selling my JVC FX31 soon if anyone is interested.

I don't keep track, but if I had to guess I'd say about 250.

Mine have 700+ and that nasty treble doesn't go away.

I had over 500 hours on my CKN70's and the treble was still painfully bright.

 

Someone posted that they solved the problem by switching to tips from the Philips SHE3590's. I bought a pair of those for $4 plus shipping on Amazon just to get the tips. They eliminated the harsh treble making a huge improvement overall.

 

The seal from these tips is very solid and boosts the bass so much that I have to be careful to keep the volume down or it makes my eardrums sore. They're hard to push onto the CKN70's but it can be done and is definitely worth the effort.

Thanks digirato. I'll give those tips a try.
post #9989 of 32875

What do you guys use to burn in?

post #9990 of 32875
Even with comply tips on, the upper mids is still very shrill and piercing after more +/-300 hours on my 70's. Digirato, do you think the 3590 tips tone down the problem more than the comply foam tips. Please kindly advice if you have experience with the comply tips on your 70's. Thanks in advance.
