My sound preference is slightly V. Not hardcore JVC V but something like Audio Technica's V where the mids aren't completely drowned out (IM70 type signature).

The ath-ckr9 were pretty good for under $210.

 

It isn't a slightly V-shaped in-ear though.

 

The rockets may or may not appeal to you, but it is also another worthy in-ear. I haven't heard it yet since I had not been able to receive one from the rocket tour yet.

 

Mochill is right, the ASG1+ is another one.

 

You could go for the new jvc fxt series that's coming near release.

CKR9 was definitely on the shortlist. Along with the UM Pro30. I'll check out the ASG1+ & Rockets.

Altone200 is v shaped and quite interesting and is only $150 or there about. Treble can be a bit sharp though. Great detail and good for low volume listening but high volume might be to sharp.

For a slightly bigger price tag the DJE1500 is also ever so slightly v shaped. Not quite as detailed as the altone200 but more versatile and all rounded.

Larger bucks yet the UE900 is an option.

The T10i is not really v shaped it's more gently sloped from bass to upper mids where it then flattens out. Looks good and is darned comfortable though as well as decently isolating.

IM02/03 are also quite good if you want a BA alternative to the CKRs

I've heard good things about the JVC FX850. And everyone says the mids aren't recessed at all!

DJE1500 can be had for $155 on amazon. I enjoyed the last headphone you suggested to me(X323XS); so I might check them out. Not really interested in the UE900. I've heard them before and I felt like the mid-range was heavily recessed.

I thought about going with the IM03 but I had terrible fit issues with the IM70 that tip rolling didn't solve. I don't want to drop $300 on an IEM just to have it not fit.

Audio Technica US will start carrying soon both CKR9/CKR10.  I have a feeling it will probably be a little bit cheaper to buy it from Japan, but you loose your warranty since AT US will not honor warranty coverage from overseas purchases.

Nice find! They do make an excellent impression at the $25.00 price point. These guys could be a serious player if they keep it up! Solid first effort in the presentation which makes one curious about how good they sound.

Bootiful, simply beautiful.





And this Is my last post on the ath matter.


n addition, exhibitors limited model earphone equipped with the "world's first" push-pull mechanism of "ATH-CKR9" and "ATH-CKR9LTD". It was also possible to carry out than listen and CKR9. where the author tried to compare the differences between the two good prospects and overall resolution of treble. It was a tone that CKR9 itself was clean wide sound field originally, CKR9LTD Kimaru crisp and more detailed percussion. The Piano Classic received a space feel like spread while maintaining the clear is.


Looks like Eric will be happy to know that the detail in percussion that lacked a little compared to the fx850 may have been fixed.
