Audio Technica ATH-CK6 “9Styles” review

Audio Technica 9Styles ATH-CK6 review.

Price:$68 at Domayne
Contents: carry pouch, S/M/L tips, 3 kinds of loops.

Introduction:
Audio Technica ATH-CK6 “9Styles” is a in-ear earphone which uses a aluminium housing for anti-vibration and better sound quality-a bit like MDR-EX90.

Design and features
These are known as 9Styles-because you can change the wearing style by putting on a different “loop”. 

The design of the earphones itself is minimalist-no Sony style angled design, just the familar IEM style. 

The earpieces features a aluminium housing for anti-vibration and improved sound. Mine are in blue. 

I really enjoyed trying out different style combinations-depending on how I want to wear these.

The tips are easily put on and are supersoft-very nice!

The loops are attached to the end of the earpiece and are easily removed and changed.
These are:
*earbud style (round)
*small loop style 
*large loop style

A carry pouch is supplied-it is made of a nice material. 

Cord plug is straight shaped. 

Sound quality:
Sound quality is very beautiful:nicely balanced highs,mids and lows and just the right amount of bass,better than Sony’s MDR-EX85.

Using this with a NWZ-A815, I found the EQ set to custom 1 and VPT off to be the best settings for the ATH-CX6.

With a S705 and ATRAC encoded music, it was supremely good with Rolling Stones tracks-nicely balanced and at the right volume (maxed but not so lid as to cause to hearing loss). 

Listened to Michael Jackson and The Beatles-the sound reproduced was supreme in quality and clarity. 

Overall:

I was extremely impressed by Audio Technica ATH-CK6 “9Styles” because these are well built in-ear headphones with 9 different ways of wearing them.

I give these:10/10.
