    Rooth demos: the evaluation of Rooth lineup – liquid clarity     What seems like a long time ago I bought a LS8 directly from Rooth in China and in recent months Rooth has directed me to talk with Tomo from HFI International in Japan, so we got to talking.  Tomo informed me there were...

    Which tips am I looking for?

    I'm trying to figure out which kind of tips I have that I really like so I can buy extra pairs. The main issue is I love the small silicone tips that come with the CK100Pros because they offer me the best fit when on my TDK BA200s, but I'm getting rid of the CK100Pros! Where can I buy these same...

    can IEMs be durable?

    I read many threads, reviews and feedbacks about IEMs considering I'm looking for a pair for the gym and it seems that they all fail. It's just a matter of time, even if you are careful. So a majority of people end up buying the cheapest pair they can find and replace them once they break.  ...

    IEM build quality concern

    It is quite obvious that In-ears are lacking in build quality.   I have used /or seen some one use IEM and their average life span is around 1.5 years. My current IEMs, Hifiman RE-400, claimed to be the 'Waterline', have also started to wear off in a short period of time.   IEMS that have...

    DITA - The Answer (Truth Edition).

      I received a set of DITA - The Answer (Truth Edition) from the designers in late October.   My first impressions were very positive but I wanted to give them a bit time to `loosen up`.   There are two choices of DITA `The Answer` and `The Answer - Truth edition`. The difference is in the...

    Monster Cable Turbine Pro Copper vs. the IE8, CK10, CK90Pro (modded), RE252, 10, FX500, WM2 silver, and Some e-Q7

    I am sure you already know all about the Monster Cable Turbine Pro Copper IEM and what it comes with (if you don't, it is easy to find) so this comparison review is only a sound quality/presentation comparisons of the Copper vs. many other high-end IEMs. I tried to use a wide selection of genres...

    Hi, this is my first review here. I am a noob at this, but I will try to keep everything short, simple, and to the point. Please read this first before you continue: This comparison is subjective since I am basing it off what I am hearing. What I hear and what others hear can be completely...

    Audiophile buds?

    Now I'm thinking I should purchase a pair of audiophile earphones for on-the-go listening, possibly in addition to a pair of cans. I'm looking for audiophile buds that cost $150 or less, have good noise isolation, and are good for listening to classic rock. Any suggestions would be great!

    is there any earphone which has the clarity of the Audio-Technica ATH-CK10's but have more texured and deeper bass ?

    From reviews the ATH-CK10's have exceptional trebles and mids, but the bass is lacking. There must be an earphone out there that has the trebles of the CK10's but the bass of another earphone ? like more textured, deeper and profound bass, this would be the perfect IEM for me ! thanks if u can...

    JVC-Victor HA-FX700 vs Audio-Technica ATH-CK10 vs HiFiMan RE272

    I am having a hard time choosing between these models.The first two area really hard to find, but I found a seemingly reputable store that sells them (seyo-shop), and now that I have access to all three, I dont know what to do. I listen to pretty much every kind of music, and I am looking for...

    Audio-Technica ATH-CK10 IEM or Monster Turbine Pro Copper IEM?

    Now I own 1 pair of ATH-CK10's and one pair of Turbine Coppers. The problem is the turbines are unopened, in box, still sealed.    Do i sell the Turbines? Do I open them?   These are the only IEM's i own, so would it be worth it do keep the coppers as spares until my ATH-CK10's get lost...

    IEM Recommendation for AKG K701 Admirer. CK10?

    Yes, yet another one. But here is the twist: no Triple.Fi and no ER4. Ha! ;) I am looking for a neutral IEM with good detail and nice treble, basically just as my K701. A little more bass than the AKG bass would be ok. As stated above, the Triple.Fi doesn't work for me since I have rather small...

    Best IEM I can lay down on my side with

    Recently got the Westone 4R for this purpose. But while they're comfortable normally, they still put a sharp pressure on my outer ear when I lay my head sideways on my pillow. Seems I just need a smaller IEM. Right now, I'm looking at the ATH-CK10. They're extremely small and there's almost...

    Hi guys, I've been wanting to get a new IEM since my last one (audio tech ATH-CKS77) broke last week. I am presented with these choices: SONY XBA-3, SHURE SE425,ATH-CK10, FA DBA-02 MKII given that my budget is 440SGD (360USD). I listen to mainly pop, alternative rock and a little of everything...

    tl;dr   My beloved ATH-CK10 are broken after just a year and can't be fixed or replaced under warranty thanks to some ridiculous requirements from AccessoryJack. What do I replace them with?   I also recommend you avoid buying from AccessoryJack. If you take the plunge, be sure to keep...

    Etymotics sound with a bit more bass? Prefer not to use a portable amp to do it.

    My beloved ER4s died and I'm in search mode. I loved the clean details and the isolation in noisy work environments the 4s gave. I used a Xin Macro 4 with bass boost and got outstanding performance for the cost of the etys. So in the $300 range, suggestions to consider that would let me remove...

    ATH CK10 Headphone Equivalents?

    Longtime lurker here. My beloved CK10's bit the dust recently, and I'm wanting to make the move to a pair of headphones as I am about to start working from home and portability isn't as much of a concern, though a massive set of cans is not desirable. I listen mostly to folk, folk rock, and...

    IEMs for small, fussy ears that sound great

    Up to this point, Audio Technica CK10s were the best fit I could find for my somewhat small ears. Can you guys tell me if the current Shure IEM line are all the same size, and if so, how big/small they are to other IEMs at the moment? I may just grab the 215s from Amazon to check fit, then...
