This isn't like a present or anything.  I just got her some headphones that I expect to be significantly better than what she is using now.  I mostly decided to get them because of the price after I used about $80 worth of credits and points at Sears.

Nothing wrong,dude.She will love it, but CKR9's overall SQ is better.I recently bought CKR9 because OZKAN recommended it to me.I compared  it to my friend's CKR7 and found CKR9 to be better.

:beerchug:

By the way,have you heard of Monk earbuds?

Newsmy A33 has no problem in driving my 32 ohm Monk and Etymotic MK5. Let's say they will be more powerful than your Android phone if that helps.

Much better,dude.You won't regret your purchase.When you hear instruments in ckr7,it is congested;it is more like you are close to the instruments and it is not a pleasant feeling.The ckr9 has a better soundstage.The ckr9 and the ckr10 are on a different league,dude.The ckr7 should not even be brought into discussion.The ckr9 bass quality is excellent and accurate.The ckr9 needs a good burn-in period.If you buy it,don't judge the sound quality instantly.

Lol I'm using it ............

Just wanted to prove my dad wrong .
He didn't want me to spend "so much" on this kind of stuff and asked me to buy the CKR 7s purely because they are cheaper.

It's a good thing I never listen very_evil_smiley.gif

Hi. Is there any difference between the 49ohms version and the 12 ohms? In my area, they only sell the 49ohms one. But my music player is iPhone. Is it better to get the 12ohms one? Why would Audio Technica do that?

Different region different specs. I went to japan just to make sure i bought the Japan spec'ed model. 

 

As for which one you should get, get the 12ohm one.

Looking back, I think people are right with different ear tip changing the experience of the sound.

 

Personally, I didn't see much difference of using the JVC eartip over the original stock. Yes, there was change but not as much people here had led me to believe.

That said, I must say, for those of you who had been fortunate to have had EPH 100 in the past, I say give the EPH 100 eartips a try to the CKR 9LTD.

 

The CKR9 LTD with EPH 100 eartips are like on a completely different level of openness (and the soundstage is MUCH bigger).

I understand for most people they will have to stay with JVC eartips (because EPH 100 eartips are never sold separately) but after having tried many other eartips, I think I have found the "perfect" eartips with the CKR9 LTD.

So yea, if you guys have the EPH 100 lying around at home or the EPH 100 eartips, try plugging them to the CKR9 LTD. You will be so surprised the difference in sound. Maybe because the eartips are super long by nature that you get the open space sound. Maybe because the eartips are bendable the sound can directly go to your eardrum.

Though I shall never know, I think what matters is the result of the sound. And I must say, the EPH 100 eartips take the CKR9 LTD to the next level.

 

**When I say the sound is on a different level, I actually mean it. You know the feeling from going to apple earpods to like your first true audiophile in ears? Ya, that's how dramatic the change of sound is for me. I really have no idea how an eartip can change this much but I have to assume this is mainly because of EPH 100 eartip's super unique design. Personally, I think any long eartip (like EPH 100's biflange eartips) will make the sound have a much bigger soundstage. And in case you are wondering how EPH 100 eartip looks like, .. they look like: http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-EPH100SL-EPH-100SL-Inner-Ear-Headphone/dp/B00591GIMY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456795412&sr=8-1&keywords=eph+100

Yes. As you can see, it is not something you really can buy separately as to my knowledge only Yamaha have ever used these eartips and never decided to commercialize it.

That said, sound score wise, I give CKR 9LTD with Yamaha EPH 100 eartips a 9.3/10. And with the JVC, 8.8/10.

Having said that, if you guys don't have the EPH 100 eartips, don't bother buying an EPH 100 for the tips only. That I think is super silly. I am just posting this for people who have the eartips of EPH 100 at home. Just try sticking them in. I use the medium size and have been fortunate to have 2 sets of each (due to warranty).

Does anyone have any idea how these compare to the ATH IM70? I use them for binaural beats (I need the 5hz low) and they are mind-blowing - but I'm curious how push/pull drivers would work for them too.

If you like quality in your bass, there aren't many IEMs in the price range as good as the CKR series. They're a noticeable step above the IM70.

 

In short, the CKR9 is deeper and more quality bass with more detailed mids and treble than the IM70. Also has more air to it. The CKR10 is more similar to IM70 in bass quantity, but deeper and tighter. Mids are more detailed than IM70 and treble more present than IM70. More intimate than the CKR9, but more airy than IM70 to my ears. Both are a clear upgrade sonically and in comfort to IM70, but they lack the detachable cables and sturdy build. If you like more quantity, oomph, and boom to your bass, grab the CKR10. If you like more tight, fast, controlled bass, look at the 9.

After successfully making me buy the ckr-9s you are on your mission to make more ppl buy them eh?

Ps: I am loving my ckr-9s and my jvc fxh30 are on their way (got them for songs that need more detail) .
My next target seems to be either the flc8s or the er4s .( currently leaning towards the er4)

If my MEE Audio Pinnacle 1 aren't as good as I hoped (although from what I'm reading they'll be something special!)...I am definitely look at these as a backup. I'm really enjoying my current noise-cancelling Audio Technica iems. They're really damn good for under $100 USD (bought them in Japan). I might even just get a pair my next paycheque anyways lol.
