#1099 Reporting for duty! Just put an hour on mine with the Schiit Asgard 2 and man am I liking these cans. Side by side with Senn HD-650 and first off the AKG's are way more comfortable. I don't even feel the 7XX's after a few seconds. Not a lot of side by side music comparisons, as I mostly just stuck with the new ones. That said, on a few tracks the 7XX's seemed to be more articulate or precise, if that is a better term, in the mids. Not to say they were hard to listen to. On the contrary, they are quite enjoyable. I am running Deezer Elite in FLAC from a Sonos Connect into the Asgard. Aside from maybe an upgraded DAC, this is a really fun setup and one where the AKG's will thrive. Be sure to listen to some Chris Botti on trumpet or Chuck Mangione on French horn. Feels So Good is just fun on these. Fleetwood Mac's Rumors album on the these really makes you appreciate how well the AKG' are tuned. Overall, two thumbs up!
