Lol. I had a day of hearing, and I broke the cable. It was totally my fault. I totally bent the cable, and it snapped, as any cable would.
But from the day of use, I can tell that it lacks bit of clarity and imaging(more like soundstage depth) when compared to AK100. It does, however, have richer and thicker mids. This evaluation was done on BA200 and GR07 as my UERM gets affected by AK100's 22ohm impedance. But for $200 that I paid, I can't really complain. Great form factor and usability. I just wish they had a slimmer case for it.
Oh, also, unlike AK100, which was made in Korea, AK10 is made in China, and definitely lacks build quality. They are made of plastic, instead of metal like AK100. It does make the AK10 lighter and cheaper though.
