I'm using a Sony ZX2 with the output bumped up via the sound enhancement disabling trick. It provides healthy drive and power this way... But the sound is just too dark. And I've never heard the ZX2 sound dark with any other phone. FWIW it's also dark in the same way out of several laptops we have. (Two Macs and a PC).
I've had a pair for a short while now and estimate my set has about 50 hours on it to this point. I haven't really observed much in the way of audible changes in the process of initial listening. When I was reading others' reviews prior to the drop of this headphone, I was under the impression that bass was quite good but that it was not really a 'bass-head' phone. When I received it and played the first track, I was pretty shocked at the sheer amount of bass present....
I got to hear the Empire Ears line recently, and to me none of them matched the Mason's clarity and detail, including the Zeus. It sounded a bit thicker and more confused in the midrange to me, but may have had a more full tone and broader presentation in that area. Still, somehow the Mason seemed to have more clarity in the mids, and vocals just sounded more 'right'. I met my friend fully planning on being blown away enough by the Zeus that I'd feel like I had to have it,...
I echo Chodi's experience when I had the K10U and then the Mason came in... I could tell immediately that the K10U was nowhere near the Mason's level of resolution and clarity. I'd add that the midrange had issues, being somewhat sucked out by comparison, and with a bit of an off tone to it. The Mason's was just so much more natural and 'correct' sounding. I literally knew in 5 minutes which one was going up for sale.... I will say though that I did highly enjoy the...
I'd take one, but in a universal.
 That's a big box o' fun! Look forward to some impressions...
I want to find a pair of Sony's MDR-7520 for work or general use. Please PM with offers to sell.   I'm thinking something like $250-$280... negotiable.    Thanks in advance.

Well the K10U is sold, and I am continuing to thoroughly enjoy the Mason. The K10U just couldn't hold up to the completeness of the Mason's sound. By contrast the K10U exhibited a noticeable sense of thickness and lack of resolution through the mids, which was only apparent after receiving the Mason. The Mason's midrange resolution, detail, and fullness (without any of that thickness) just won me over from day one. The sense of space is also better on the Mason, much more...
I think it also included a kill of whatever the volume output trick affected with the player! I certainly can't get it to work anymore and I'm certain I haven't been doing anything different than when I had the last firmware. When running the new update, it warns that you cannot go back to an older one either... So you'd really want to be sure you won't need to use the output trick at all.
