Where did you audition it?  If it's in a store out of the box, the sound is night and day after burn in.

Nope, my friend has it & he bought used already. Also its size is pretty big, definitely not for my ears, had some troubles with the fit.

I wouldn't call CKR9 bassy at all. Bass is deep and amount is acceptable.

Will give it another try some day

You might not want to hear it then. The fit definitely makes and breaks the sound, which is why you hear a lack of details and loose bass.

Hi people, I'm tossing up between ATH-CKB70 and CKR7 and IM70, which have a better sound quality in general? I'm going to buy it in a couple of days, so any opinion would've been appreciated.

The IM70 is for me the best-executed product of the 3.

I did a brief comparison of the Dunu DN-2000, Fidue A83, ATH CKR09 and ATH CKR10 here, if anyone is interested:

Would just like to know which one would suit me better the CKR9 or the CKR10? I'm looking for a iem that is rich/warm (but not bass heavy or very dark/congested either because I do like good clarity and some brightness in the upper mids/treble as well and I don't like slow lingering bass) and has full/lush/forward sounding vocals with a bit of warmth as well so that it sounds intimate/close and also smooth as well as if your sitting right next to the singer. I also like nice airy vocals with a good soundstage as well. Also imaging, speed, timbre and realism is also very important to me.

 

I currently have the Sony Z1070 and the F887 but find my self using the F887 more due to portability but still prefer the sound of the Z because it's warmer, richer and more lush sounding so it sounds more emotional while the F has better clarity/resolution but it's too thin and analytical at times that makes it not as involving. So I'm looking for iem that pairs better with the F in order to sound closer to the Z's sound sig while still keeping the benefits that the F has.

IMO the CKR9 and CKR10 might be too cold and hardened a sound for what you want. I would not describe the sound of any Audio-Technica product as "lush". Instead, I think your description lines up very nicely with the new XBA-A models; try those. :p
