My HiFi-M8 and iPod Classic can't get outta bed!!
We had a lil` ol mini meet today in Tokyo.
A couple of tables at a cafe full of portable gear, hifiman-901, AK120, tera player, ALO amps, pico slim, vorzuge amp, the entire venturecraft range and others....Lots of universal and custom in ears - the latest Shure, several variations of fitears......an array of cables...and so on.
I found my Hifi-M8 held its own against the AK120 fairly well, but the Hifiman-901 nudged it out by a slim margin when used by more revealing in ears.
With my ATH-ESW11 (and their limitations as an over the ears and upper mid-fi product) it was a fairly even contest between the three.
All in all a satisfying day.
love mini meets!
