The almost-becoming-vaporware HA5050H was displayed during the IFA2015 and mentioned to be available in Europe in a few months' time but the price will be around 4,000 GBP (equiv. 9,800 SGD) Too expensive to be considered :v

I'm speculating that the japanese marketing teams in ATH Japan may be too busy with their product planning for the next wave of latest IEM/headphone products, as re-checking their portfolio schedule strategy in the past it seems that ATH Japan usually has this tradition of releasing a horde of new products especially for IEMs during late Oct/November period. Since the IM series was last unveiled during 2 years ago ard October 2013 period (which replaced the CK100Pro/CK90ProMKII models back in 2011) , maybe next mth we will see some announcements from them soon?

Perhaps you can help sniff out some insider news for us from ATH SEA side? *tongue in cheek mode*

Bloody PU quality on the M50xbl is seriously bad. Only light usage and the headband and earpad is peeling like mad.

And cause its considered consumables cannot claim warranty....

I purchased Audio Technica-CKB50 earphones at Stereo Electronics on 11sep15. Didn't try before buying and found that it is not suitable for me once I tried it at home.
Purchase price $38. Letting go for $2x. Please refer to my sales thread in marketplace. My loss is your gain!

Lightbulb A900Ti / A1000X / A2000X

Hello,
I've been eyeing these 3 cans around the same price range I found lately:
A900Ti/ A1000x/ A2000x
I need help choosing between these models and need some input on their sonic differences. Is there any places besides Jaben and Stereo which carries demo sets of these cans??


So far I've heard A900x, A950ltd and A1000x
Between the A950LTD and A1000x I really couldn't decide which I prefer more.
A950LTD- More controlled and forward, rounder treble, slightly mellower
and has better clamp.
Whereas the A1000x sounded brighter, more sparkly and delicate. Treble more detailed, bass extends deeper.
I liked the A900x initially (the soundstage and vocals blew me away)
It has more bass quantity then A1000x but sounded grainier.
The refinement of the A1000x has made me drool for it ever since.

I have the M50x, and the quality of the pleather is damn bad, not even a year with moderate usage and cracking, i had to throw away the stock earpads cos they were stinking so badly like someone **** in them even after i wash so many times with warm water and soap. yea the shure HP840 earpads are a much better option to buying the damned stock pads for $40+, they are cushier and slightly larger, pushing the driver a bit from your ear, and tame the lows and highs a bit.

Anyone know how to fix the damn headband? previously have some post on HWZ long long time ago on some cloth patch ribbon for $2 at daiso, cannot find leh.

Had them shipped from amazon last year when it was eligible for Amazonglobal saver shipping hahaha, slightly more expensive last year though. Just take note that they are slightly larger than the cups of the M50x and can come off easily.

lol, why you totally ignored the new CKS and WS models. As for the drivers on ESW950, it is hard to say whether it is a complete redesign or a change of component, for the description merely mentioned using a strong magnetic, unibody yoke.

btw, though the A2DC connector looks kinda similar to MMCX but it has zero compatibility with MMCX cables.
