Summary: I am glad I purchased these, it is too easy to forget how great songs can sound when you wear lesser quality headphones, and saves you from getting weird looks from using the arger studio ones.
Pros: At first I wasn't that impressed with the sound, especially after reading so many great reviews. Then i decided to try on my old $20 headphones, and bam! there was an immediate difference. The old head phones sounded dull and blah in comparison.
Cons: The larger ear-buds irritated my ears at first, but after the third day i got use to them.
Pros: Amazing sound quality, easily beating out several pair of over-the-ear studio headphones in the same price range (Pioneer, Bose, Sennheiser). 'Clarion' is the word i would use to describe the highs. You can feel the rumble when they hit lows even on a cell phone, and they handle my home theater's bass control being maxed out better than my 2x 12in woofers do. overall, extremely impressed. A-T won themselves a lifetime customer on these.
Cons: the cord length is my only complaint. without the extension, it's just too short. with, it's just too long.
Summary: The buds are bigger and give these a close to headphone sound without any need for amplification on my iPhone for them to fully be themselves.. It comes with a shorter wire with extension option. Different size buds for ears that will fit your ears like a glove. Even though they are heavier than the CX150's they do not fall out.
Pros: The ATH-CKM55BK are very detailed sound that brings a very punctual bass sound without being muffled, siding a bit toward clarity. A punctual bass that doesn't muddy any of the mid or highs. I'd say the mids really stand out in front and the highs do not pierce. You get the punch without blurring all the other music even listening to very hard fast music.
Cons: Got it on sale and for the price I can't think of a CON.
