The ATH-CKM500..The best CKM earphone yet. - Page 60

post #886 of 1916

Again, no matter how much I burn them in, I'm not sure whether they're changing any more. The change after 2 days (about 16 hours?) was very big, but after that it stayed about the same, or at least, it didn't change dramatically.

So I've resorted to winamp EQ. I've lowered the 3k and 6k bands respectively by 3.1db and 1.9db....and WOW, talk about a dramatic change. They are improved so much. Lessening the spykes at those frequency considerably improved the mid quality too. These iems are impressing me.

You guys see this? Brilliant idea for all earphones actually.

See what?

See what? Are you talking about EQ? I am actually against EQ. Id much rather find a headphone that sounds the way i want and not have to bother with EQ. If i wanted to just use an EQ i would have kept my prior headphones.

Also the biggest problem when using an ios device is that the ios EQ does not work across all apps, like say Pandora, or Bandcamper, or when streaming internet radio. So its not an option for me.

Lol. Ya thats it. I was thinking about Cute's custom tips that he was talking about form Aurosonics. Which will set you back a nice $95. I am wondering how good or not as good these DIY tips would be. Probably not as good but it is an interesting option.

 I wonder how safe those chemicals are?    ...certainly wouldn't want an inner canal rash which would prevent me using my regular IEMs triportsad.gif

So I just got these recently, and was starting to really like them with the smallest stock tips... until the right channel suddenly went quiet. So now the left is a lot louder than the right. Anybody have any idea what may have happened?
 

Edit: Chucked them in the fridge for a little bit, and now it seems to be fixed... Still not quite sure if the sound is the same, though.

Well it turns out the pair I had on order was actually not in stock so I cancelled my order for now and am actually thinking of stopping all future purchases for the next while as I clear out all the stuff I have been buying and then just buy 1 high end IEM to match up to my SRH-1440 headphones. I may actually go PF232 and then get the heck out of Dodge so I stop buying more stuff!!!

Ive been trying for about two hours to make a pair of decent custom tips. Im having a pretty hard time. This would definitely be a lot easier if these iems didnt have such wide nozzles. Something like an etymotic would be much easier. There always ends up being one spot right near the end of the nozzle where the silicone is to thin and rips. I also cant get a deep enough insertion. They are just barely going into my ear canal. I may try again another time. But im giving up for the night.
