Been a while since I've been on here, but I've had my Asgard 2 for about a week now and have to say I'm very satisfied with it. To give some background, I'm currently running this setup:
Mix of ALAC, AAC, and MP3s > iTunes > Creative X-Fi Titanium HD > Asgard 2 > Grado 325i & Beyerdynamic DT 770 32 LE
To start, the Asgard 2 and DT 770 shine together. It opens up the sound a bit more, adds some separation, and overall just gives it a more powerful sound. Extremely satisfied with this combo.
I have mixed feelings so far with the A2/325i combo. I'm not sure if it's just the sheer fact that the headphones seat a different way on my head at certain times, or that at certain times I'm being too analytical, but it's a very love/hate relationship. Some times I will sit down with it and absolutely love the sound. Other times I will sit down and just feel a mush of 'bleh'. Again, not sure if it's just not burned in (not sure I'm a believer, really) or if I'm just trying too hard myself. Can't be buyer's remorse...it was a gift.
