I really love them, and they sound great with the X5, too...
But yah, I will probably take the X5 with me to the Headphone Bar and try out some headphones.
Well, my head is pretty big (look at the size of that thing
). I also have large ears. The clamp of the 840's was a bit too much so it tried to bend them out a bit and SNAP! The plastic sandwich holding the cups to the headband broke
so for a while it looked like I had a headband amputee with one cup attached. It was sad as I tried listening while holding the left cup with my hand. I really did like the sound. I finally gave up on them and took the rest of the headband apart to see how it was put together. OCD.
That pretty much is what sent me on an out of control obsession with better sound and build quality, and each time I upgraded the headphone I felt I needed to upgrade the source or amp, and on and on.
Sorry for derailing the thread. Back to the X5.
Edit: I'm 6'3" tall so no, I don't look like a lollipop.Edited by x RELIC x - 5/3/14 at 10:46pm
