I don't understand why AT continues to design the cups on their open headphones to NOT pivot vertically, but they DO pivot vertically on their closed headphones. No vertical pivotting causes uneven pressure on the either the jaw or temple and is the reason why some people have to physically bend their AD700s to get a good fit.
The design is so similar that why not give them BOTH vertical gimbles instead of only the closed one. Makes no sense.
So, the AG2 arrived today and I was about to do some comparing with the iCAN to see if my Mad Dogs do scale better with the extra power. Well, once I tried to turn on the iCAN... it died again... ... and I wasn't able to do any comparing.
I just emailed iFi Audio so I'm waiting on a response as we speak. Chico, you say they responded to you pretty quickly, correct?
Man, they should have contacted you, noticing the following this thread has created. I am DEF interested in the closed back ones, I may get a pair and make a comparison against my Beyer MMX-300. For 279.99 tho, they better be good.....
If they use the same drivers as the ad700, can we expect a big jump from he mmx?
They will likely sound worse unless you're just getting them for soundwhoring and don't care much about immersion. And if they're closed, they might not even do that well.
