I bought from there too. Mine arrived today. I wanted to ask for the ckr9s, how are guys using the fads tips. Use normally on the tip of the nozzle or push it back all the way?

Got my CKR9 a few days ago, and I just have one word to describe the sound - BEAUTIFUL.

 

I've been off the IEM hype train for a few years now after being disappointed by the fxd80, fxt90, ex600, asg-1, gr07, and etc in search of a mid-tier earphone to replace my banged up Radius DDM. But I'm back now for the new wave of IEMs and wow, is this is what you can get for $200 nowadays?! This comparison won't be useful to many people now, but they sound just like my DDM with its incredibly musical and balanced sound, but the quality of everything is much better. Just like the DDM, stunning mids with well extended bass that rarely bleeds and just enough highs to not sound shrill on sibilant tracks. Although the treble is not as dark, and the low end has a very slight bump up from the ruler-flat bass of the DDM. Detail and separation are on entirely different levels. I've been looking for this combination of quality and sound signature for years and I finally found it, woohoo.

 

My few complaints lie with the portability and ergonomics of the phones. The fit is shallow, the cable's really microphonic and plasticky, there's no chin slider, and the housings are enormous. It actually fits surprisingly well for its size, but it hurts wearing over long periods of time. People with small or mutant ears beware. They're also really tip dependent. Use small tips with the way they fit and the bass is completely gone. Foam or larger/rounder tips and the bass can be a bit boomy. 

 

Now I'm wondering, why aren't the CKR series more popular? I guess it's just the availability in the west? I wouldn't have these if I didn't buy them off another head-fier. Or if the other popular ~$200 IEMs right now just sound as good or much better than these CKR9s, then wow, the field is absolutely stacked right now. Time to make up for the 2 years of fotms I missed and destroy my wallet :L3000:

Glad you are enjoying them. I was wondering who you bought them from?

Ckr9s is a very good phone. I am quite surprised why theres less hype for it. More people should really hear it. I guess because the current hype is based more into the sub $100 chinese and korean IEM. I have the Ostrys and vsd3s, sold ax35 and ordered vivo xe800 although they are a steal and performs very good considering its price, they are all still 2-3 notch behind the ckrs. The ckrs are very refined sounding. The bass all the way to the highs, natural timbre, instrument separation, detail retrieval, sense of space are up there with top performance phones IMHO. The dynamics is like nothing I have heard compared to some high end BA phones.

 

Try getting ahold of jvc fxd80 tips. It really opens up the ckrs. Wider soundstage, better separation and details. I don't understand how tips engineering works but trust me this tips is like the best synergy for the ckrs. I am still waiting for my jvc spiral dotz tips to come so I'll see how that compares to the jvcfxd80 tips.

Question to those who have both: Which would be better for a good take on a "warm & smooth" sound signature, the HA-FX850 or the ATH-CKR9? (Yes, I've looked into comparisons, and suspect the HA-FX850 is what I'm looking for based on the ones I've read, but I want confirmation.)

That would be correct.
