Yup, they were at the 30hrs mark, some improvements compared to out of box, the staging has expanded immensely but the Bass has yet to tighten up, mids are coming forward and treble has gotten a little clearer. If the improvements keeps on at this rate, I can see why they're your favourites (and will be mine too!)
I remember the AD1000 having just a little more bass and the AD2000 more superior mids and treble (assuming all were out of box new) but I guess that doesn't count as the SQ changes after burn in, we'll see if I'm satisfied with the AD900X enough not to get one of it's higher end siblings.
Things I'm liking about this phone so far:
1: Comfort - I'm talking about really, really cool velour comfortable here !!! Put the headphones on and a minute later, I forget they're there. No clamping pressure between the ears, no leather/skin friction heaty-ness, no metal/plastic bar on the head feeling.
2: Open Air'ness - There is zero isolation, great for listening in a quiet room at night and yet nobody can sneek up behind you ! the feeling is very close to listening to floor standing speakers.
3: They scale very well with amps, althought not settled yet, I can already hear the difference naunces with different amps. (that 3.5mm to 6.5mm adaptor is just begging me to dig out my old speakers Hi-Fi system from the store room)
It wouldn't be fair to comment of the SQ for now as they will only reach the 50hrs burning mark by the end of today but so far I'm liking it by the hour, so thank you in advance Dsnuts, guess you just have to change your slogan back to "You guys can call me a ATH superfan"
