[NEW] Audio Technica CKR series (CKR10, CKR9, CKR7) - Page 35

post #511 of 542
Heard both. Ended up buying the jvc's..
post #512 of 542
The fx850 is superb, but i haven't heard the AT's yet.
Put it this way, i have ref1 and got the JVC round the same time, i would say they are just different, ref1 only better by a very small margin, a matter of preference , for the money i cant imagine better value than the JVC, shame about the ergonomics..i mean its very comfy but i prefer iem's not sticking out and u can sleep with:D

If you want.....

 

You could wait while saving and before you know it...

 

the fx850 will hit for $220. ;)

 

 

Then later on if you want a different sound sig, I'd suggest the ckr9s as they are a warmly balanced phone. *warmly balanced - It's not the warmest earphone, but it definitely isn't dry. It's a balance of both worlds that you'd enjoy and it gives such a euphonic sound to the iem.

Could also try out the CKR10, it's warmer than the CKR9 with a different presentation. I would rate both CKR over the FX850 myself.

How does the bass of CKR10 compare to FX850? Which one is deeper and punchier?

I should have responded to your comment.

 

 

I totally agree. :') You're awesome for trying these out. I totally want to hype these up, but I think I'm starting to enjoy their lack of attention. Maybe audio technica will lower the pricing due to this...:ph34r:

Have smb compared CKR9 & JVC-FX700?

I wonder if they have similar bass quantity. To my taste, FX700 is a basshead monster:basshead:

The audio technica ckr9s are now $10 cheaper on amazon, purchase when possible!

Mini0510, thanks.

So, it still no good for portable use because of its' size? How about subway?

huh? which iem are you referring to? I was told that CKR series have fairly good isolation.

If you want more bass, perhaps go for the CKR10, which I'm going to buy very soon.

But FX700 has more bass than both. The isolation is not good. Maybe FXZ200 or FX850 is a better choice

Quantity wise fx700 has more. IMO fx700's bass can get messy and bloaty at times. It has longer decays on bass which makes it sound thicker. Ckr9s on the other hand has one hell of a quality bass my friend. It goes very deep but stays tight. I wouldn't categorise ckr9s as bass monster at all. Its the best bass quality I have ever heard from a universal IEM.

here was told that it quite bulky and uncomfortable for portable use.
