Summary: I bought these last summer during a visit to Taiwan. I had hoped to buy a replacement Audio-Technica CKM500 (which broke) but they have been replaced with the CKR5 which are a bit of a let-down with its bloated bass and congested soundstage.
Pros: Deep, powerful sub-bass, warm lower mids, large and immersive soundstage
Cons: Mid-bass can be a tad bloated, slightly recessed upper mids, microphonic cable, sibilance with some eartips
Summary: OK so this headphone has been a trial for me. I bought with high hopes as I was looking for a AH-D7000 equivalent in in an IEM and in this case a $90 IEM, not a small order!
So the question is did it achieve my goal and is it a worthy $90 contender?
Pros: Nice detailed midrange and treble, comfortable, iphone features work well
Cons: bass is good but lack impact/punch, cable is a bit unwieldy
