I'm very interested in the CKB70. I've been waiting for AT to release a more balanced sub-$100 iem.

I must say, the CKR9LTD is a real looker. I'm glad I held out from getting the regular CKR9/10. smily_headphones1.gif

The CKRs certainly look good in their red and gold color scheme, much like the A900XLTD. As for the CKB series, my best guess is that they are the BA counterparts of the CKN series.

 

These IEMs will be released in Japan on November 14th.

That ckr9 model looks suspicious.

 

It looks like the ckr10 body instead of the ckr9...

Something I'm contemplating too. Not only does it look great, it's also much lower priced than the Z7.

Really interested, along with the X2.

This new CKB series realy looks like ckn replacement. So they should be quite bassy for ba drivers.
post #14 of 37
The ckb sound signature reminds me of the bass heavy klipsh x10 but its ridiculously overpriced, for a single ba iem. Hope i can catch it under 70 bucks for the ckb70 one!
