i have a im50, but the cable spoilt and its not worth to change the cable. I, may as well get a new im50.

This time, I'm considering a better one because i think the built is good, so next time if cable spoil just replace cable. it's more worth it this way.

So was considering between im02 and im70.

I dont know is it because i used spotify free to play my music, the quality lousier. comparing both, im70 seems to be more smooth but less detailed than im02. like u cannot listen to much detail in the vocal but then its just very smooth. dont know if u call that smooth.
but the im02 like abit "jagged" but got more details.

I was expecting im02 to be more smooth sounding and detailed haha

Jaben is giving away AT cables (with mic) for each IM purchase, though they have no stock for IM02 for now.

My portable set up was iBasso dx90 paired with TF10x6 ciem *pure silver with 1% gold cable (used for 2 years, still working well and fitting) <<mids and highs are really prominent, making bass abit lacking, which is settled with eq

Needed a headphone for home use, so I bought the ath-m50x headphones
Was actually expecting alot from it due to comments around forums, reviews and ratings for it.

But it fell short of my expectations (likely because I'm too used to my ciem sq)
*yes call me crazy for expecting a $200 headphone to compare with 6 driver iem

However, I can say it was actually worth the $200!

I am burning in the headphone with pink noise now to see if it makes any difference

Will comment more about it then..

Hi guy, I'm looking for an open can, us ad900x a good choice. Tried it once and really like it but was wondering if there Andre better options or maybe more value for money cans. So far I have the m50x, and yes the earpad quality is HORRIBLE

lent a fren for about 30min and he din wana return already so... apart from being big i think it looks quite pretty and sounds good, a tad more bass will be perfect

quite limited too as only spotted one wearing CKR9LTD in the wild so far

maybe it's the price point vs other available options i guess

more exp then popular IM50/70, close to IM02, new push pull drivers instead of the tested proven multiple drivers BA plus the fact cannot change cables

are u planning to get 1 or already have one?

Wanted to get CKR-9LTD previously but out of stock.
Think I'll settle for CKR-9 instead.

From most reviews, it seems CKR-9 has more crisp mid-high end, CKR-10 more forward and bassy, while CKR-9LTD is the "middle ground" of the 2.

haven got a chance to hear CKR9 so can't tell the difference

but CKR9 and CKR9LTD, from what i read, are quite different, with CKR9LTD closer to CKR10
