Are you FINALLY going to build that candy apple red semi-translucent K10 with gold nuggets and genuine jade faceplate that I suggested? 
Not that great for use on the bus, but perfectly portable for use around the house:  
Can I do one too?  The Slow Show - Dresden.      Simply divine on the X2. (Notice the song playing in that picture I posted earlier today )
My latest flame, the surprisingly good Philips Fidelio X2, running from my AK240.    Here's what they were playing.
Thanks, but I can do better  
I've transferred TONS of music to and from my AK's (120II + 240) without a single hitch on Windows 10. It's MTP, so it's got a one-track mind.

I visited a friend and fellow Head-Fi'er tonight and we tried this combo with the X2 just for the hell of it... Sounded absolutely spectacular, but luckily the Chord Hugo is priced so far into oblivion that I won't seriously consider getting one. But it was fun to try!
I had the K10 in my ears for 6 months(!) before posting my review. Mine were the first set to make it out of the Noble Skunkworks and I wanted to be sure that I got the review right. Everything I threw at them just sounded amazing and I found myself constantly losing focus, getting lost in the music instead of listening for details and taking notes. At first I thought it was just New Toy Syndrome playing tricks on me, but as I spent more and more time listening to them, I...
