Of all the tips I've rolled, I actually like the stock ones best.

I am still debating on whether to purchase the ckr9 LTD considering I own a unit of ckr10. How comparable they are? Will they complement each other? Sorry if this has already been discussed.

Audionewbi, if U have CKR10, don't waste money on CKR9LTD. They have similar sound, no much difference to complement each other. CKR9LTD sounds more liberal, no bass heaviness accent like in CKR10. Just reduce EQ on subbass region and add a couple db between 5-10k region up to taste. Sounds lame, but it gives perception of what U can hear from CKR9LTD.

Of all the tips I tried, I think the best is without a doubt...

 

1. the EPH 100 eartips. I don't know why Yamaha doesn't just commercialize these biflanges. They are awesome.

However, because that would make my EPH 100 useless, I am sticking to the JVC eartips.

 

I think the JVC eartips sound better than the original tips. Actually, the original tips I don't understand has such small radius opening. I never feel like I get the full treble with those small radius openings. However, I must say the eartips in the original stockings bring more bass than the JVC for some reason.

But then again, at the end of the day, honestly, they are all the same. I wasted 35 dollars on different eartips for this. From Sony to 2 types of JVC eartips. Never thought the cost was justified... at least for me

i got the kaede II and along side ckr10 they are my two favourite. 
CKR10 does certain things that Kaede cant, it has better micro details however kaede II macrodetail and balance wins over ckr10. 

The more I listen to CKR10 the more I realise how special it is. It is great for watching to movies.

Between the CKR9 & 10 which is better for music genre like  Chillstep, EDM, OST, Dance, Pop, Kpop etc.. also good enough for Soundscape, Acoustic / Ambient / New Age etc...

I just got a pair off Ali express.$60
I thought they must be fake but I'd take the risk. I have my B+W P7s for home with my Lil fiio E 18. My E10s were coming apart so a £40 gamble wasn't so bad. I have pink and white 25 hour run in with 10 play.They are either genuine or good fakes. Andre gerraisetti corner of the water album wolf doesn't sound as clear as P7s but a song off sound cloud TRYNMIX the sound stage with neutron player is just beautiful. A few songs with some high treble no longer has crackle there. Even P7s expose that part. DUST IN THE WIND and HORSE WITH NO NAME have no real extra detail but sound good. I will dig out my flac Nick Drake river man for comparison v P7s and AKG 451s. And trusty What hifi E10s. Clean bass is what suprises me with the ATH-CKR10S.
I have the JVC spiro buds on order (that's why I come here pro advice thank you) From a head phone noob my pros are superb sound isolation with standard large buds. My pack of EBay memory foam buds killed the sound like pillow on my snoring wife's face.. but I tried them as even with my BFG ears I am getting a little sore with the big body of these phones.Angling the cable backwards helps.I don't have fancy kit or even understand half the posts but I think £40 for these is a bargin fake or not. I just hope my rambling post helps a Lil bit. Good luck and happy tinatus Head fiers.
