They are a little warmer imo, but that is from memory. Also not super loud from a phone but an amp or laptop would do it justice I think volume wise.

 

...and you can also read about it some here towards the bottom(cover pros: MusicSeal is NOT a gimmick, works amazingly like almost full volume no leak, really quite amazing and the couple cons: like useless volume adjuster, which is not to be touched once left all the way up --not loud still-- cause of imbalance issues & and no removable cablehttp://www.head-fi.org/a/head-fi-buying-guide-over-ear-headphones-3

 

Cool, many thanks for the info.

 

I have read comments about volume being low, I would be driving them with a cell phone - un amped - do you think they would be too quiet?

 

essentially I am looking for a pair of over ears for when I am travelling and for occasional use at home

Same here... it will be my next purchase.  ♫ ♫ ♫

Wow, Havi at the bottom of the list :eek: Just wondering what is your source and if you are amping it up.  But either way, we all hear things differently, and there is nothing wrong with having individual preferences ;)

 

Since IM02 is at the top of your list, you probably prefer analytical bright sound.  You gonna like Doppios as well, a similar dual BA tuning as IM02.  Another one you might enjoy, if you like a bright vivid sound, is Altone 200 hybrids where you also get a bonus dynamic driver that kicks bass arse!

I tried the IM04 and the CKR9 at a Comex IT Show today. Granted, the Audio Technica booth was right next to this guy who was babbling on about special prices for tablets, which didn't make for too conducive a listening experience...

I really really liked the CKR9. Paid special attention to the timbre after Syed mentioned how it bested the Havi B3. Well, I can't say about how it stacked against the B3, but it was very very impressive. Bass was clean, thumpy and hit with great authority. Mids were perfectly placed to my liking, and the highs were very slightly sibilant in the treble region. Clarity and detail were top notch. Imaging and soundstage were very good too, quite close to the B3 from memory.

The IM04s were much less impressive to my ears. To me they sounded too dark for my liking. I didn't have much time with them as I was leaving the event, but nothing in particular was impressive about them.

On another note, all my cans have HM5 pads. They're that good


Hello,

do you have these pads on HE-400 (HiFiman)? On what else are you using them? Easy to install?

Thanks,

Wow, can you give some explanation on this ranking, specifically Tenore, T1E, and B3 Pro 1?  IM02 too expensive :)

I have not tried any of the IM 02,03 and 04. I tried IM50 and 70 though I still thought the ckrs were on another level of its own. I have a feeling the ckrs are actually one of the best phones ath has ever made if not the best.Did you try ckr 10 though? Btw these ckrs uses the world first dual push pull driver mechanism, to me IMO they really need the burn in. I gave my ckrs a full week of burnin in and the bass got tighter and mids were even more clear hence more perceived details.I confirmed this when I went to the store again to try out the 10s and then compared the shops 9s to my 9s lol

This gave me a good chuckle. So true.

HEY! That's not an Asian brand. You can't just turn your back on us like that. ;) But damn, those do look sexy...

 

Anyway, in reference to my earlier question, after doing a bunch of research I think the Ostrys look like they'd make her happy and I found a pair of gold editions for $40 thanks to dannybai. I'll compare them to the VSD3S (which is my favorite budget-fi IEM) and see what works best for those genres and gift the ones that suit her style best. Thanks for the help as always, guys.
