Thanks for the review Project86! I just got my impressions done today and placed an order for the AC2's. They will be replacing my UM2's, which I am quite happy with, other than having to buy a new set of Comply's every week to keep a consistent fit. I feel like I'm renting my earphones sometimes haha. They will be used the majority of the time as stage monitors, but I plan on using my iPod as a source sometimes as well.
You're review reassured me that I was making a good decision, as I love my UM2's. Thanks for the contributing so much to HeadFi... and all of us newbie's out there haha!
Awesome! Please post your impressions when you get a chance. It doesn't have to be long and rambling like mine (sorry!)... just any thoughts you have would be great. As a regular UM2 user, you would have a great perspective on how similar/different the AC2 sounds.
I just saw this; great review! From your description they seem like they are different as most customs I have heard and have read about don't offer a V shaped sound signature. And your description of who you would recommend the product to seems similar to how I would recommend the TS842!
Keep up the great work!
Thanks Joe! I don't know if V shaped quite captures the sound, but I certainly don't have a better way of putting it. Westone said they don't release their frequency response charts, just as a general practice, so I really don't know. But they sure are interesting.
