By the way, while my ADs were back with Mr. Speakers for the upgrade, I got out my tried and true HD650s.  While I enjoyed the familiarity of going back them, they do not compare in any way with the Primes.  They are smoked and blown away in every possible category.

 

Any AD owner thinking of this upgrade: if you can do it, do it.  And if you are in the market for a new set of high end phones and wondering if the extra cost for the Prime VS the AD is worth it: if you can afford it, absolutely yes it is.

What amp are you using for the AP?

Great, thanks.  You certainly make the AP sound tempting :)

I am listening to them right now and they are completely surprising.  I was really not expecting this kind of improvement.  They are by far the best sounding headphones I've ever used.

Waiting for mine to get here on Saturday has not gotten any easier...

For sure @ableza! My upgrade will get delivered TO Mr. speakers tomorrow. At least a week, maybe more. It is now a less easy wait.
