AK240, HUGO, X5 and Cowon P1.

 

The P1 is the source for the Hugo. I'm really impressed with the P1 and it only cost £666 compared to the AK240 £2200. I have to say I prefer the P1 as a transport for the Hugo. The UI is really good, probably nearly as good as the AK20, but much better than the X5

 

The headphone is the new Sony Z7.

where did you get that Lowepro case?


Thanks man...

 

Im quite proud of it:p

 

Well... I live in South Africa, so I would not be surprised if you can't find in USA... 

 

Just go to a DSLR shop and check for small cameras pouches, thats what I did... It worked like a charm!!

 

The cool thing is that professionals like to have extra compartments for memory cards, battery and what not. So you may even find one with a nice place for your IEMs as well...

They're like a really good mature wine, And they just keep sounding better.

First time Ive tried them on a tube amp, It worked pretty nicely creating a warm airy sound.

Wind instruments sound amazing!!

The only downside is these cans NEED offensive amounts of power to drive them properly, The B-1 just manages to.

Thank You!

They really are one of my favourites in my collection.
If I had to sell all my headphones apart from 5, these would be in that 5.biggrin.gif

how is the little bear ?

its been calling to me for a while

Its a nice little amp, Especially for its very low price tag.

I'ld say it has a warm natural tone. Mids are a little more pronounced than Im used to! 

But all in all for a £12 amp, I really cant complain at how it drives some of my cans, And of course,

Once its warmed up it sounds really nice.

 

Its definitely given me a nice first foray into tube/valve audio and I have to say Ive caught the bug.

Im currently looking at Desktop size tube head amps for my bed side rig Im going to build next year. :)

Hows the Z7 synergy with the Hugo?

Correct it for you. :D

 

Nice pics, BTW. Does the FX850 sound a little boomy? I was going to try the FX850 but unexpectedly grabbed a 2nd pair of EX1000. I love aerodynamics, that's how music should move.

I loved the 850s i had for the right music. Eric Clapton unplugged has seldom sounded as good as with them. But other music I listen to just sounded off somewhere in the upper mids.
It was a real shame because they really were amazing at what they were good at.

@james444 suggested a mod to the vents. Did you try that mod?
