Do you suppose I ought to think about it again? And if so, to think it over once more?
I kid man, congrats on passing
Anyway, just so this doesn't get hilariously OT, I've spent the last few weeks with the excellent AKG K3K. And for all of that phone's technical proficiency, it still can't engage me in a manner that the G-2 can. The G-2 still possesses this vividly tangible aspect to its vocals and instruments that I only ever find on similarly midrange focused IEMs like the FAD Heaven, PF and 334. I feel the drop in resolution immediately when switching from the K3K to the G-2 but I am no less enthralled. The expansive nature of the K3K just can't manage that same degree of intimacy, and the concentrated density and force of the G-2 engages in a manner like few other phones I've heard. It's vivacious and draws you into its sphere, whereas a phone like the K3K keeps you at bay as an observer. Very different phones with very different intents here. I love them both
