The ATH-CKM500..The best CKM earphone yet. - Page 44

post #646 of 1906

Quick question chaps...I may of missed it in the threads, so apologies in advance, but does anyone know some good Foam tips for the CKM's, I have some Comply's T-400 and they fit the older models (according to their site) but would welcome anyone's opinions to good alternatives...and are cheaper...(gels irritate after a while)

for those who ordered from cdjapan, how they state the value?

Mine finally shipped today. Hopefully it arrives by the end of the week. I'm pretty excited to see how they work with my music collection.

Full price in yen.  The site says they can ship gift but have to declare full value.

On paypal it is written in Yen. It was written about 55 euros, and I find 57 less euros on my card (probably due to paypal fees).

Received them today...oops he gave me 24 pairs! (4 pairs each size instead of 3 pairs each size) etysmile.gif

cdjapan raised the price a little?
post #655 of 1906

Haha an issue biggrin.gif

24 pieces I mean beerchug.gif

 

Seems to isolate better with the small tips and they fit on the nozzle easier. I think it's tamed the bass in a way that I like it more. Haven't given it much of a listen, I just fit them on

Just got mine.


Quick listen = Wow!


Off they go to get burned.

Mine came yesterday but I was out. I rescheduled delivery for Thursday. CANT WAIT
post #659 of 1906

Got it yesterday, with 11,89E custom fee %^$^%*&%#$@%^%&$%.

First impression... BASS BASS and BASS.

Burn in a little, I think it has more perfect sound than HTF, but I still enjoy HTF more than ATH, because HTF still has funnier sound that ATH.

Funner yes but I think you will eventually realize the sound quality difference in the two..I don't know how many earphones you are used to but with the CKM500s you will be able to hear all the little details the HTF600 will be missing. Give them some time and some of your best quality music and you will understand why these are a leap in sound quality over the cheap but fun HTF600 full sized..

 

Throw on something with instruments in a big hall. A live recording or vocal tracks and you will be able to hear all the little details and hear the depth of the sounds. The more you get used to hearing the CKM500 I am certain they will grow on you.
