    Edit:Thanks to Bhazard's "moral compass" post I'm going to have to retract my support for this statement.

    Ethically (and anywhere else but China, legally), it is bad. They should not be using AT branding without permission if they are real, otherwise they are counterfeit.
     
    If the seller owns the design, unbrands them, and sells it, then it isn't a problem.

    Absolutely agree with that.
    But none of us was sure it was real and gambled. Whoever sells iems will not be possible to carry on, even in china.

    Someone found these earlier...http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-Do-For-OEM-ODM-HR900-Double-moving-coil-Headset-bass-HIFI-Headset-music-mobile/32360917990.html
     
    This would be legit for the OEM to do. Is this the OEM of the CKR's though???

    Yeah AE CKR9LTD's sound really good.

    This guy says that both Mannhas E170 and the older C190 sound very similar - highly detailed sound but almost no bass.

    Some nice earphones on one of my favorite stores, with a GREAT packaging:

    These are excellent! Fantastic bang for buck, really. Had an extensive audition with them at a local store here. was hard pressed to find any faults with it at its price. Boosted bass sound, but that's how I like my music.

    Interesting... how's the detail though? Mid-highs are precise enough?
     
  10. destrozer
     
    They are warm and smooth, definitely not a fidue-type sound. Details would probably be not on your list of what you listen out for on these. I'm pretty certain some details get smoothed over with its signature. Highs do have some roll-off. It hits a sweet spot for me though, since I don't particularly like my iems sounding too bright.

    My "idols" are ROCK Zircon and KZ ED10. Did you hear any of those? If yes, how to they compete?

    There's also a product that is pretty new on AliExpress, and is about $16 on MisterTao.
    This one is a new seller and promises shipping in up to 3 days!

    [​IMG] Those first ones are a copy or maybe even the same manufacturer under a different name of something I've seen before. I just can't place it at this time.
     
    They look similar to These:

    Just tried the CKR9LTDs out on a flight.  They isolated really well and worked great.  Think I'm going to coin a new model number for these.  Instead of "ATH-CKR9LTD", I'm going to call them "ALI-CKR9LTD" from now on.  Have well over 20+ hours of play time on them now and I do believe they sound better than OTB.
     
    On a negative note, the housing on the right ear piece touches the inside of my ear which causes some pain after about an hour.  Probably due to the angle of my ear canal.  Anyone else have this issue?
