I'd love to hear your impressions on them since you are a fellow CKN70 lover like myself! I apologize if you already have since I haven't gotten any farther in the thread than this post... Although I'm IN LOVE with my R3s at the moment. They have the closest sound signature to JBL speakers which is what I've been searching for all this time!
I've got something to admit, I'm starting to distance myself from my Gratitudes. I finally understand why Dsnuts isn't a huge fan of them: the mids are very shallow! My ES700s paired with my DX50 have become my favorite headphones so far. Nothing makes me feel the emotion of music like the lush mids of the ES700s.
I'm also considering selling my AD900X and purchasing the Philips X1. Does anyone have any input on that?
I'll try my best, despite being quite unfamiliar with audiophile descriptions. I had to cancel my IM70 order with Accessory Jack though, as they had none in stock. I'm going to order from Kakaku or Tenso but I need help with how to use Kakaku. I also need someone to tell me how you get Kakaku and Tenso to mark the item as a gift to reduce the chances of customs charges.
Check with Accessory Jack before you cancel...I thought something was wrong, emailed last week to find out, got the IM70 2 days later, I'd contact them first.
