This music is 40 years old, but it doesn't matter... it ALWAYS blows me away. Sounds spectacular on the DX210 Bassos. They are long tracks, but well worth the listen....
Good news. Something new from Audio-Technica:
... and several more. Just see the official site.
Of course, it's not a discovery for me now, but I like the design so much and I think that this piece of news would be interesting in this thread.
Sorry Leo, I haven't tried comply tips on my 70's. I did go back and listen to them (still with 3590 tips) for a few hours last night to verify my impression of the absence of harshness. I cannot emphasize enough how excellent they sound now. The harshness is completely absent. The mids and highs are clear, airy and beautiful. At slightly above medium volume the bass was not painful and the whole sound signature was exceptional.
I particularly enjoyed some Vangelis tracks from Blade Runner as well as many other genres from classical to Hendrix. I'm not as skilled at describing sound characteristics as some other headfiers. The phrase "depth of field" kept coming to mind. All the instruments and vocals were beautifully clear and airy.
These tips transform the CKN70 IEMs into a shockingly improved listening experience. If the comply tips didn't tame them for you I would strongly suggest giving the Philips tips a try. The IEM itself is under $10 and comes with S,M and L tips. I found that the medium size fit me best. ...will look forward to impressions from other folks.
I think the Nutman really likes his treble. CKN70, FX30, FX40 all have very bright treble.
not my case. and just using the stock tips. and i am sensitive to high peaks. they sound just great as they are
Some of us like the very harsh kind-of cold sounding highs. I remember there being some complaints about the highs on the 40s being excessively bright. I thought they sounded amazing and still do.
Mochill, what tips are you using on your Corecool v2? I want to buy some double flange tips, but I'm not sure if they'll fit on the 385. I get them tomorrow but because the housing is almost identical I thought you could rough estimate me the nozzle size.
