hi,

where did you get a pouch of that size?

i'm looking for one, but without the shuffle picture.
That is a Incase for Shuffle. Got prints. Avaliable at applesg online store. Comes in a pack of 5. Sell those you don't want? I bought mine from a female who took all the girly colours, so just nice, I take black and blue.

For Incase, I don't think so. Your best bet is to share with ppl or buy already, sell those you dun want.

Shuffle cases a lot right? I thought everywhere also have.

dunno izit bcos i've found a good seal with the L-sized sleeves or that the phones have been burnt in, my EP-630 is sounding like a portable subwoofer

great for bassheads and rock music listeners like me.

haven't done a direct comparison with my older E630, which strangely works best for me with S-sized sony sleeves.

my rough take is that E630 suits more for classical with its clarity and brightness while EP-630 is more for rock music with its warmth. previously with the cresyn, i'd have to crank volume up higher for the bass (essential for the rock mood) which results in the company of harsh treble, as the phones are naturally bright.

whatever it is, both are equally great phones at a similar price, albeit for different genre listeners.

is there anyone else with this similar problem? that it's not always that i can get the optimal seal every time. i'm wondering if it's due to temperature difference which causes expansion/contraction on the ears/sleeves.

wonder if getting UE flanges will solve this.

EP630 type of bass of CK7? Aye, different story larz.

CK7's bass is very fast, punchy and clear, goes something like 'THWACK', and is never boomy.

EP630's bass is 'KATHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!'

...

I think you get the idea.

Hmm, depends on what you're looking for. Barely any of the higher end IEMs have the bass quantity of the EP630, save perhaps the UE SF5EB

we are the audio technica people :)

we have ck7 at $129, and many other ear & headphones.

we can post it to u, or if u r near bishan, you can pickup from our place at braddell hill.


bluetin.com


Hmm does anyone know where else to get the Audio Technica ATH-CK7s besides Stereo Electronics cause I live really far away from the Causeway area. Heard that Hung Bros at SLS sells it but does anyone know if they have the stock? Can't seem to contact the shop. How about HMV Hereen.. Oh and the price is around $120 and not $160 right? Anyone know? Thanks in advance! (:

Combined my Cresyn E630 with Creative EP630's S size ear bud... Conclusion: PERFECT!

85% of EP630's bass but with great clarity!
