The ATH-CKM500..The best CKM earphone yet. - Page 107

post #1591 of 1907
Joker rating is reference, to comparing iems. And im saying that only customs and maybe k3003 are one class better. EX1000 and westone 4 is only small friction better not tier above.

If you haven't listened to an IEM, please state it clearly and don't make a claim about knowing its sound. It's in the forum rules.

The K3003 is not all unicorn and rainbows.

Lol at making inaccurate comparisons between earphones, then passing it off as a fact.

 

Furthermore, attempting to justify it by referencing someone else's reviews.

 

Although, I guess defining what a "tier above" means is subjective - I guess under some people's eyes, a 60k luxury sports car may only be a "small friction" better than your 5k rice car, as it does the job you need it for and you may not be able to tell bad handling from good.

If you had read my review, which I posted a few posts above, I openly criticize many aspects of the CKM500. In-fact the post I replied to was not pointing out negative aspects of the CKM500 at all, the post I replied to was filled with ignorance and hyperbole. I'm not sure what you're reading, but you're replying to the wrong person.

 

Also if these cost $400 there would be a lot of negative reviews on these.

 

Also rikardoliepa I don't think you understand how Joker's rating system works, the rating is not a meaning that the IEMs are better than everything under it, it's a rating scaled on the cost of the IEM. Meaning a $50 IEM with a 10 rating in value is a great IEM for the price, it does not mean that the $200 IEM that received an 8.0 is worse.

Joker in sq dont count price in, only on value . So $7 7.5 iem sounds equal $150 7.5 iem.

I don't know if you're trolling or just don't understand the meaning of the word value, but cost is always factored into value.

LOL.  Well, if you really believe that then you should consider yourself lucky.   Since you own the CKM500, one of the best IEMs in the...err...your world, then you wont feel the need to upgrade.   Start saving your pennies to buy a custom, or perhaps the K3003, for that day when you are ready to move one tier above the CKM500.

Keanex, you are now trolling- SQ has nothing to do with price.
Only criteria where it is count in is value.
post #1599 of 1907
I like how most of us take those reviews as facts, everybody is entitled to have his own opinion, I haven't heard all the 250 plus iems in Joker's thread so I can't make an informed opinion, but I'm pretty sure that in the Sound Quality part, the cost isn't factored in, that's in the value part.

You guys are grown ups. Or should be. Please keep the thread civilized..In the end if you enjoy the sounds from an earphone that is all that really matters. One mans treasure is another mans trash..There is no such thing as the perfect sounding earphone for all and all of our takes on them should be respected.

 

Take a breather fellas and go listen to your music for a while. Lol.

 

Sigh !   ...I empathise with you Bro !     ...Can't they all agree to disagree ?

 

It's as if someone came out of a Dunkin Donut store and exclaim "This is the best *%*#!@ donut I've ever tasted"   ...next thing you know a shower of rotten eggs and tomatos come flying !

We were talking about value, did you get lost already? Also the CKM500 isn't on Jokers list, so I'm not sure why you're referencing it. You're stating that because you think the CKM500 deserves a 9.2, that it would be higher on jokers list, which is a dumb claim because he has different criteria than you do, and it's also dumb because you're making an opinion as a factual statement when you haven't heard even half of the IEMs on that list to make that claim.
 
I mean how dumb does this sound, "I think the JAYS q-JAYS are okay, but the Brainwavz M5 are much better, while also better than the CKM500, so they are the best IEM until you get to customs."
 
Yeah, really dumb.

I do. Equalizing those frequencies brings tremendous improvement.

Well I was pretty surprised at the improvements! I just love how it sounds with the peak tamed down a bit. Never thought it could sound this good IMO!

Lol you are ridiculous. Keanex isnt trolling at all. He was simply stating that cost is factored into value. He did misunderstand what you were saying regarding Joker's rating system, but it was just a misunderstanding.

 

Why are you taking Joker's thread as an end all to rate SQ? I actually disagree with a lot of his reviews and Im sure others do as well. Just because he rates one IEM close to another, doesn't mean its true. He is a valuable reviewer, but you're acting like everything needs to be compared to his thread; that his thread is the ultimate reference that everything needs to be held up against. Not true.

 

Its ridiculous that you are taking things that aren't objectively defined, such as class and tier, and giving concrete definition to them. What you're saying doesn't even make sense. Like for me, if I hear an IEM that to me has noticeably better clarity than another IEM, I would say that the IEM is not in the same class. But to another person it might be. Its subjective. You saying that an IEM CANT be in a different class, or saying only certain IEM can be in a different class is so stupid.
