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)

Full price in yen. The site says they can ship gift but have to declare full value.post #650 of 19216/3/12 at 11:40pmQuote:
one things for sure. the price wont disappoint. the ckm500 is a very good all arounder coupled with excellent midspost #651 of 19216/4/12 at 1:58am
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).post #652 of 19216/4/12 at 10:49amQuote:

you mean 24 pieces, 12 pairs. it;s a known "issue" with that sellerpost #654 of 19216/4/12 at 2:37pmpost #655 of 19216/4/12 at 9:15pm
Haha an issue
24 pieces I mean
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 onpost #656 of 19216/5/12 at 6:49pmpost #657 of 19216/5/12 at 7:19pmThread Starter
That's the best description I have read so far. Lol. Happy listening. Let us know how they turn out for you.

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.post #660 of 19216/6/12 at 9:37amThread Starter
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.
