Has anyone pair this headphone with a Meier Audio Corda Rock? Might be something I may look into the future if I wanted to upgrade my amp/dac a bit.

I have a somewhat urgent question for everyone who has owned this can.  I recently purchased these headphones and have been very pleased with their sound, but notice that I can make the really deep bass distort horrifically with a few songs.  Has anyone else had this issue, or do I have lemon?  I'm definitely thinking about returning them, but need to find out if this is a normal issue and whether I should re-purchase them, or move on to something like the HD650's. I only have a few days left in my return window... :confused_face:

 

The tracks that cause the issue include:

and

(Distortion around 00:40 through 00:50.... and yes, the distortion comes through even with the youtube video.) 

 

 

Feedback would be really appreciated! If this is the norm AKG has got some problems. My NAD HP50's have no distortion problems at all with these tracks.

I will test those tracks with my Annie tomorrow but when I boost the bass of my Annie using EQ, it does distorts a little but only when I turn it max high

I have listened to AKG712 today and quite liked the sound stage on them. It felt much more precise compared to Philips X1. Vocal also seemed a tad closer and mids overall had bigger resolution. These are a few things I really would like to have in a next headphones.

 

But ... AKGs are open and I need closed. Was thinking about TH600 but I need good isolation.

 

Can someone share a quick comparison with MrSpeakers Alpha Dogs? AD are double price of 712 and triple price of X1. I have to buy blindly so I hope it would be an upgrade ... I will keep X1 - they are good for variety of genres, especially for funk (here 712 felt a bit short), acid jazz and similar.

 

I would need another pair more suitable for acoustic music - jazz and classical in particular. I hope AD would do well here.

Played it right from my iPhone 5S with my K712, since I was away from my main rig, but even underpowered I didn't hear any distortion.

The Alpha Dog is amazing. As far as closed headphones go, those are my top recommendation. Easily.
