I haven't heard the CKM99 or 1000, but the CKN50's sound pretty similar to the CKM500's. Very similar high end (crisp but not harsh), slightly fuller mids, and deeper, tighter bass (but less of it).

I'm really excited for the CKN70. The CKN50 is one of the best bang per buck IEMs right now, it competes well with IEMs 4-5x its price. If AT refines the sound a little bit, smooths out that spike in the treble and improves the cable, they will have something everyone on HF should look at.

Sweet! How do they compare to the mh1c and vsonic vc02? Would the ckn50/70 or ckm500 be better for trance?

Gr07 bass edition for trance ,deep downtempo and stuff like that. Why because I have the bass edition. biggrin.gif...also the gr07 mk2: D.

@ Nyanman I wouldn't get the CKM99. It's an outdated model that doesn't sound as good as the CKN50. From memory the bass isn't nearly as tight and the treble is rougher.

I'll also like to know how CKN50 compare to MH1C if someone have them both? 

BTW i love J-cord, it is so much comfortable for straight down use and it is one of reasons to be interested in them.

I had the MH1C's in the past, and IMO, the CKN50's are definitely an upgrade. Everything is so much more detailed and clear.

Hey there, glad to see you're liking the CKN50s. My friend has the MH1Cs and I get to hear them every now and then. I'll have to agree, the CKN50s are more detailed and clear. The bass is tighter, the highs have more extension, and they're more transparent. However the MH1C has smoother mids/highs and what is IMO an impeccably good sound signature. It's hard for me to say which of the two are better.

Yes, I can see why some people would like the sound signature of the MH1C. They're very smooth like you say. I guess it's just personal preference. I'm really enjoying the CKN50'S though. I'm sure the 70'S will be even better.

What are these like for comfort with that unusual circular "stabilizer"? Could you eg sleep in them?

post #27 of 264

For me, it's surprisingly comfortable. The circular stabilizer is very soft. However, I wouldn't use them for sleeping, the barrel is rather long and it sticks out to much.

I change my mind im going to wait a week for the ckn70. biggrin.gif
post #29 of 264

The reason I purchased the ckn50's was to get an idea of the sound signature. I really like the 50's so far, so I'm sure I'll purchase the 70's in the future.    

post #30 of 264
I was going to purchase them until I learned that the 70s were comming out with carbon nanotube so I'm wating paciently biggrin.gif. I also might try out the new sony xba-c10 because they look cool and sound like they will be amazing without the tube.....oh forgot to mention that my vsonic r02 classic edition is almost in my possesion biggrin.gif
