I am really debating on re-buying the Annie one last time. I might purchase it from Razordog this time not only because of the deal they have but because I haven't heard about any bass rattle issues in Annies that came from them. If I do end up coming across another issue, still, I'll just have to swallow that pill and have AKG take care of it. The Annie has become a headphone that is a must have for me.
So, that means I will have to return my HP100 to fund it. I really like that headphone, but having the X1 has limited its use. If it wasn't so hot in Florida I'd be using the HP100 on the go... . I guess a closed can is not a necessity for me, now, because it's use was to provide that fun factor that the X1 now presents, with all the perks of an open headphone to go with.
