I actually sent Warpdrive a PM regarding the pair he suggested, but I'll post it here for you to read too mlowie, as you seem to be pretty knowledgeable as well:
I've taken your advice and looked at some reviews for the CK7s. I read this one in particular where the reviewer seems to compare them to the 6i's a lot.
How much do you agree with his review?
They seem to be kind of heavy (10g), will I really notice this in my ear?
And by being 11mm, will they fall out of my ears say, should I laugh, or contort my face for some odd reason? Or even if I am just running.
The fact that these have a sturdier cord make me happy, and if it's essentially the same sound quality (again, not an audiophile) then I'm perfectly happy. I just want my first venture into, erm, more expensive headphones, to be an enjoyable one
Thanks for all your help!
The fact that that review compared it alot to the 6i's (and had the CK7 come out ontop nearly every time) was a head turner for me. Other reviews generally have nothing but praise for this model. I'm sort of in the air right now. I don't really like the idea of having things deep in my ears, like the 6i's, but I'm afraid the CK7s will fall out of my ears (despite reviews saying otherwise, dumfounded worry really)
Also, by not being an audiophile, I'm not sure that the minute differences between the two will make much of a difference to me. Which is why I'm beginning to lean more towards the CK7's as they are billed to be a "sturdier" headset. Not that I'm entirely careless, but as a teenager, I'll throw them around/into a bag occasionally.
NYFG, While looking at other pairs of headphones, they were often compared to Ultimate Ear 5 Pros, and from what I've read, I just don't think those are the pair for me. Thanks
Oh, and finally, a lingo question. "Flat" sound is good right? Because usually, when something is "flat" it's not the best of things...
