Thanks wayne, all that's left are those ostriches and hopefully the ckr9s do best the ostrys enough to warrant their own attention.
BUT, only if the ath-ckr9s cost at least $140, lol. That is a fair increase in price/performance ratio imo, because I know that the $70 that I will spend on those ostrys will be worthwhile.

The overall impressions from review sites is that there is a good difference between the 9 and 10 in resolution and clarity, instrument separation, soundstage size, and imaging. It isn't a huge difference to warrant the $100 (but this is based on conjecture). I hate kakaku though, people hating on those titanium looks, sound, and build quality apparently.
Jants and I believe that the disparity between the two will minimize once we tip-roll the ckr9s, which is what I plan to do.
Like Ds and yourself, the titanium housing intrigued me, but the aluminum produces a more natural beauty to the iem.
EDIT: this is IMO btw, forgot to mention that.
That and it looks like a piece of white chocolate, lol. I'm almost tempted to eat it just by admiring the aesthetics.
White chocolate rolos, I think that's what popped in my mind when I scrutinized the build of the ckr9s, lol!
And here are the latest impressions taken from AV watch.
