What does everyone think of theirs? I have high suspicion these are fakes. The print and quality of packaging, cable material, etc, all seem wrong. I will try to purchase a second pair to compare but these don't seem like genuine ATH products.

I can tell you, Bill Poteet is the real deal and and man of incredible integrity. Several years ago I bought a pair of AT3000 Wireless Microphone systems from a large online retailer. One of the power supplies stopped functioning after a short period and instead of writing for service, I decised to call Audio Technica and I'll never forget it. It was Bill who answered the phone and I had a great conversation with him at the conclusion of which he asked for my address and sent me 2 Power Supplies even though I needed one and even though I didnt ask. Every time I use that wireless mic system (which is often because I am a professional conference speaker) I think back to Bill and that conversation as I plug in the power supply. It's not often you have a customer service experience like the one I got from Bill and when I saw his reply and his contact details, I thought I'd weigh in. If Bill says "it's so...", It's so...

E40 is reference buds, CKR series is for audiophile who love the Audio Technica sound. So if you want character, then CKR100 is the way to go. Personally, I own a pair of CKR90, and I am very please with it.

I'm seeing a lot of requests o n here for reviews of this CKR100IS. I don't own these but I do own AT's CKS1100iS. They have 12.5mm push-pull drivers almost similar to the purported 13mm drivers here. The basic specs of my CKS1100iS are almost identical to these: 5-40kHz, 200mW input, 50ohms impedance, 108dB sensitivity, same A2DC connectors. The majority of my audio equipment is IEM's including Empire Hermes VI, Noble Sage Silvers, Vibro Earphone, Campfire Lyra II. I think I have some good IEM's to compare to these CKR100IS's. I can tell you of all my IEM's, the AT's are my bass monsters. Right out of the box with no EQ modifications, these are severely bottom heavy. That may work for the most avid bassheads, but for me I have to juice up the high frequencies with whatever EQ I have on my various sources. Once I do lift the high end up though, these are stupid clear and can be really, really fun to listen to. However, the bass is just so damn big that I find I can only last an hour or two of listening to the CKS1100iS before I have to take a break or switch to another IEM. From a manufacturing perspective, my CKS's feel really well made with nice materials, if that's important to you. I hope this helps gives a little insight.

their website says the impedance is 12 ohm; http://sea.audio-technica.com/products/headphones/lifestyle/all-earphones/ath-ckr100is Here is 80 ohm. Which is true ?

EarStudio ES100, it's a bluetooth DAC

..a bluetooth DAC with reliability issues and 'less impressive' audio output compared to iPhone 6. Have it, $99 down the drain.. reads great on paper though, so maybe "gen 2" will be viable?

I own ATH-CKR90. The stock cable is suck which is the same as this ATH-CKR100. I do recommend to get a new cable.

Hey there. Wondering how you like the CKR90, and if you've heard the CKR100s to compare. There are barely any reviews of these IEMs anywhere.

I have never tried CKR100, and CKR90 is the only IEM I own at the moment. Although I have almost 10 full-size headphones, I have no experience with many IEM, so it is hard for me to say. CKR 90 has the sound signature of ATH, if I compare to my old ATH-IEM (I forget the item code) and ATH-DSR7BT, quite bassy to my ears. If you like bass, you will love it. Before changing a new cable, I actually regretted buying CKR90. The high was so dried; it was like not having enough power to drive the higher frequency driver (CKR90 and CKR100 have 2 drivers) However, after getting a new cable, I love them very much. The high is a lot clearer. CHR90 sound smoother and more energetic. Earmax-cable provides a sweeter sound ( I am not sure if it is a correct term, but it is not warmer). Bass is a little less pronounced (in a good way for me). You may get a different sound with different cable, so I cannot comment on that. I think CKR90 has decent drivers, but their stock cable is just suck, and ATH may want you to buy thier upgrade cable, but you have other choices. PS: I bought CKR90 for traveling and due to the impression with my old ATH-IEM which can last for 7-8 years. Their cable was broken, so I chose CKR90 because they have detachable cable. The cans of CKR90 are metal with elegant and solid quality build. I personally like the quality of ATH products. I think they will be able to last for more than 10 years without a problem with broken cable.

Would love to hear reviews from people who own these. Most of AT's push-pull IEMs that I've heard have lots of bass bloat (IM50 and IM70); I wonder if this takes over its predecessor instead (ATH-CKR10).

Surprised there are so few reviews of these. Two pretty much glowing reviews on Head-Fi. Has anyone here heard these? Really loving my Monks at the moment. Thinking these could be the next step for mobile.

I bought a ckr70 a while back after tried the whole ckr series. Ckr100 is definitely a huge step up. Didn’t think it’s worth the 300+ price tag back, but a 185 is very attractive. Still didn’t regret the ckr70.

Ah that's good to hear then. I'm curious why there's so little reviews for this IEM.
