if we are sticking to the whole chinese theme, Noble Audio is based out of China is it not? And so is Lear Audio along with Unique Melody
 
 
Noble Audio is registered in USA, production takes place in three different countries. Both the owners of Noble are US citizens.....

So still no comparison of the ALI CKR9LTD with the ATH CKR9LTD? I am really looking forward to knowing if its the real thing...

Well FWIW, the person who has bought my ALI LTD has had the genuine CKR9LTD at some point, he notes that the ALI one is lighter. He doesn't want to comment on the sound until after it's been fully burned-in though (mine only has around 50 hours).

Has this person actually weighed them or are they going off of memory?

He has Ortofon Q7 as a reference point. Also I remember seeing someone noted that the ALTD is lighter than his/her genuine CKR9 in this thread or the discovery thread.

Wow, a new Macaw! It looks quite nice!! I was wrong when I said to someone that carbon nanotubes were probably dead. Carbon nano-fiber is probably the same thing without saying it exactly.
 
What was the damage to the wallet there??

The Macaws look really cool.

I'm not 100 percent sure the KZ hds1 is authentic kz though. I will try to find out more and get back to you guys.

A resent trend has been sellers adding kz to their title to attract attention.
Yeah, KZ said that ED10 was their last traditional phones or something like that. Then again, I have a feeling that ZN1 didn't perform as well as they thought and they might be thinking their strategy over.
 
 
I've just checked their official tmall store and it's there https://detail.tmall.com/item.htm?spm=a1z10.3-b.w4011-10484852477.56.9CzkpL&id=522569365805&rn=897b6f054ea62b1110fc122f0c4ac758&abbucket=15&sku_properties=5919063:6536025
 
Looks like it's genuine.

I have no idea what they're going to sound like.

Looks like it's genuine.

KZ HDS1 Shell diameter, I believe that equal or slightly larger than do Tenore.

Fwiw my Ltd's has the same weight as my CKR9's (12 g) which makes sense since they both has aluminum housing. The CKR10's are noticeable heavier.

My ALI-CKR9LTD are decently light. I did note the weight as well when I got them. Hmm, I thought these were plastic. If I kind of lightly hit them together, there is a bit of a metallic clank but only where the AT logo is. Peter, is all of the red part on the design aluminum or just the circle part with the logo on it?..

Here's a few pictures I was gonna put up with my impressions from the other day, but didn't. Just in case anybody wants to see them more...

Must have been more recent but hadn't seen the Macaw in black...
 

Liking it over the look of the silver.
 
As for the RT-10

Wish it would have been blue for the third color with the black and red inserts. Still cool though.

Authentic LE CKR9 is all aluminum+titanium housing....if I remember correctly ...the regular one only has the AT in metal, plastic on the rest.....
