Yep, the d7k are demanding.   What do you want from it. I mean, how much SQ do you want from it's potential. These are rough rough estimates from my experience.    Straight from an iphone I rekon the best is around 60%   Say a ipod/sansa with rockbox (3rd party firmware) and a line out to a small portable amplifier: 60-65%   Say directly from a samsung galaxy s (with rooted 3rd party kernel: voodoo sound), or a large cowon personal media player,...
  Quite a few interesting points here.   Well, firstly amping is a bit over emphasised I reckon. Amping with iem's that is.   So many people show off their 'portable' rigs with an amplifier tied to an ipod, that it makes me chuckle sometimes. But no love lost!- there's nothing wrong with being passionate about a huge branch of headfi related gear in portable amps.   really, I reckon a high level of sound fidility can be achieved with a mp3 player + iem combination only....
I've come from a nokia n8. Used for around 4/5 months intensively. Never Ever crashed. No. Not once.     My sister uses android 2.3.4 and its a similar story. I doubt that the darky one will not crash. Or am I wrong?   And plus, is there a huge performance releated increase if youre coming from stock rom + voodoo kernel to darky 10.2.2      
probably true.
Okay, i've read around the confusing forums and know what to do to flash/root the galaxy s.   I'm just stuck on deciding between cm7.1 , darky 10.2.2 final OR gingerbread 2.3.5   I want top performance when it comes to calling- i'm in a nasty part of middle london. I mean no freezez, no random stops starts. And top performance when it comes to wifi strength. Also full battery is nice (rules out cm7.1?)   I also want voodoo sound AND color. Can I get voodoo...
I can't see why no one's given a real go at the k271 vs k550 comparison.   Because please remember, before the k550 was realeased the k271 was the flagship closed headphone from akg. (still is in the uk!!)   yesterdays flagship closed akg vs todays flagship closed akg. Makes sense??
bose suck.   1000% overpriced. Literally.   If something of bose costs £200, it really should be for £20. Full stop.
Im not sure about pricing elsewhere,   But the fiio e9/e10 is for £130 here, with the nfb 12 at £190.   The fiio e9/e10 beats the nfb (stock filter) in SQ comfortably. Yes, comfortably, in my opinion.   Okay, you don't have optical and coax features, but you do have a cute ultra compact usb dac/amp in the e10- that smashes to bits the udac2. And the e9/10 occupies a much smaller footprint on my desk than the nfb12.    Anyway.
Very good question.    Yea, I wanna know that too.   Leak like a denon d2k? or don't leak like a ultrasone ed8?
Thanks for your impressions muppetface.   You've talked positively about its sound stage, which is nice. No doubt i'll be getting these when they come out for the uk.
