The discovery thread.! NEW sfwalcer's earphone comparo PG 1727. DannyBai multi phone impressions... - Page 1618

post #24256 of 26364
Im fine with straight down..my only issue is the cable. Not bad cable, but I lift weights, and the cable is kinda catchy, but I will be getting a cable soon. Possibly fbi silver cable or just spc from btg audio. Either way, if it is nylon sheethed it doesnt cling as much. And right angle plug as dx90 h.o. is on bottom. That is reason I sold my heaven vi's, flat cable was soooo clingy.

There seems to be so many contenders out these days that I never know what to upgrade to! My Q40 headphones are much better since I got my Shure pads for it and I'm loving these but I crave my IEM dosage. I mean it might seem like I'm really picky but it boils down to a few things really;

 

Comfort (Light, unobtrusive, comfortable to wear straight down) and sound (Looking for something a notch above the Bassos that will excel in pop music with female vocals, piano/instrumental music and dance music). Comfort is almost as important as the sound to me.

Indeed, thinksound on1s, Phillips X1 and L2, the final audio heaven VI, so many choices...

 

I wish I had them :(

 

But....if you read a certain thread, I think you'll find that I will be content with the earphone collection I acquired.

It's a pity that a lot of IEMs seem to be designed or more suited to being worn over the ear, something which I just never find comfortable for myself personally.

So, what are you going to get? And have you ruled out the KC06's or the Tenores? If so, I'm not sure why, as they both seem to match what you're looking for (and for an affordable price).

I Definitely agree. I wish a lot of the iems' had the intention of being worn down...

 

JVC's woody FX series has an option to be worn over ear, but that option is a must for people who want a comfortable fit (at least from what it looks like), but I think it can be worn down to be honest.

 

The sony xba-h3 temps me to wear them down because wearing them over ear is pretty uncomfortable for me...and the fit isn't even that good!

 

 

However, there IS a new iem that is meant to be worn down, and that is the one I just acquired, the ath-ckr9.

 

Now, when that puppy gets sold for $150, try to audition it, because in about half an hour, I'm about to post the pictures and LIGHT impressions.

All I can say is, the marketed term, "reality", isn't too far-fetched.

Was reading on these a bit.  I couldn't figure out what the difference between the CKR9 and CKR10, any idea?

hahaha, you caught me. In all honesty, I want to express my love of these earphones at the ckr thread, but I am carefully scrutinizing any cons from this earphone before I babble about how awesome these are.

 

All I know so far is that the treble could be a bit more forward, the mids might be just SLIGHTLY recessed. However, I think believe that the mids are actually balanced with the bass and highs to say that it isn't really recessed. It might be the thickness of the mids bass and highs, because the m200s make the stage sound pretty closed due to the thickness. These ckr9s do not exhibit as much thickness as the m200s or the h3s, but it is close to be honest!

 

the bass doesn't have strong impact or punch unfortunately... :( Well I take that back, it depends on certain recordings.

 

These phones can puncture my ears (I'm prone to bass punch) and these do punch well when appropriate.

 

But there is subbass, very nice subbass. This headphone does rumble pretty well. 


If people are saying that the kc06s lack the height, this ckr9s are the epitome of height stage. It might be as good as the ASG-2, but I do not know how high the asg2's staging is...so I am disappointed to realize that! :(

The build quality, different SQs as the ckr10s may actually be a bit more detailed than the ckr9s, might sound less thick than the ckr9s. Basically, it might be a more analytical version of the ckr9s, because to me, the ckr9s are both analytical and musical. Makes me believe that audio technica's ckr9 is the older broither of the ostrys!

Ok, now I want to design my own line of "**** In-Ears". Multiple sizes, colors, and helmet shaped veiny tips. You'll have to pull back a sleeve on some models to expose the tip.
