Oh I don't produce wax, so I can't help you there. You might try the RE0 filters

Got the ckm77s, impressions are terribly good, I love it. Problem is that I spit out flem on the part where the cable meets on accident, but it is great so far. Sounds just as similar as the a900x, loving how it sounds and see the value, the box was clean and the earphones came out when I opened the box XD, at least one of them. It's very comfortable, and it doesn't get out of my ears. Hopefully I can update my take on the ckm77s.

 

Edit: does spit affect anything on the earphone's sound at all? If I have the cable have some parts of it with spit instead of water? I barely got them today, and don't want to lose them the day I just got them :(.

Spit? lol! Amazing how close they sound to the A900X..No?. It still shocks me today.. And I bet you thought I was joking..You my friend are going to be the ONLY headfier that will know what I am talking about because you are the only one that owns a A900X and a CKM77 besides myself.

 

Burn those in as they get smoother with burn.. Listen to that precision and it will bring a smile to your face. Enjoy them earphones my friend..

 

As long as your earphones are dry of spit you should be fine.

Sadly yes, XD I am a bit sick, and tried to flem something out. So it is a splem that got on the WIRE at least. Definately...so close it scares me actually. I'm just as shocked as you, makes me wish I knew about this earphone sooner. I had a slight precaution of your comparison =P but you weren't off by a bit. YES, and I feel that I might not miss the a900x if I lost it, but I will anyways, it's a good over ear! sheesh!

 

Gotcha, it felt a bit weird..the midrange is different than what I expected, clear voices...never knew that could happen, but the strings of guitars are a bit weak at the moment, probably depending the recordings, oh well! I'm happy thanks to you dsnuts, and the other contributors to this thread.

 

Gotcha, Earphones are dry, and quickly dried the wire.

Um 15 pounds + tax is good enough. Unless you mean amazon.com, not amazon.co.uk

I think he means it is 15 for shipping alone.

I continue to warm up to my CKM50. I like them more and more. I am now using the Sony hybrid tips and have adjusted the EQ settings a bit (on the mid/trebble side) to bring out the vocals a little more. (The Cowon iAUDIO10 is truly amazing in this SQ/EQ regard! Lots of options!)

 

If the CKM77 ever groups to $50, I might try them out.

Ya I hope they can get below the $100 mark..I hope the CKM99s will go below $120 I would snap one in a heart beat. I will just laugh my head off if the CKM99s turned out to have the same exact sound as the Isurus. Lol!!

 

I think maybe the only time when the CKM77s might go down below the $100 range is during Christmas.

Ya don't know about those. There is a guy from CHINA that is selling the CKM99s at $110 free shipping but if you click on that link it says in bold red letters official "This is a genuine and official earphone, not OEM, not Fake. Never used. Not in the original package. Only comes a headphone and the extension cord. Free shipping to worldwide, Buyt it now soon" 

Riiight.. This is open item with no box, case extra tips nothing just the earphones with extension it says. Ya riight. So if it isn't fake why would it not be in the original package.

 

Same guy sells the CKM77 for $80 shipped?

 

$(KGrHqRHJDQE8f,TBzQCBPM5zjpEZw~~60_1.JPG CKM1000s. Would love to hear these. but at $580 sold on ebay. It better have eargasm worthy sound. Lol!

THANKS! You stole my line! *sniff* nah...it's what I was hoping you'd see. IT IS!!! the...expensive earphones that might be risky, BUT the dang...titanium <_>...and also, have you experienced hiss with your ckm77 dsnuts? I have it on my rezound and am annoyed, tried an iphone4 and it is almost similar, didn't try on the ipod touch yet. The pc works fine though, one time it did make a weird noise on the right tip, but after a reconnection, it worked well.
