Young bopper, it's not only about power it's more about implementation and two pieces of gear meshing together. An amp can have oodles of power but if it's implementation is half arsed it'll sound muddy/shrill and crappy no matter how much power it puts out. Seriously, I haven't said anything involving the amping questions so as not to derail the thread but people are asking the wrong question when amping is involved. The question should be which amps does everyone think will mate well with the headphone not which amp is the most powerful. You should check out my AKG video on my channel. My ALO RX MKIII-B can easily drive both my K240 MP Sextette and my Q701. The thing is, although it can drive them to deafening volumes the Q701 does not sound good on it while the more demanding K240 does. All I'm saying is with the T50 Paradox the iCAN does a very good job so I'm guessing it'll do an equally good job with the AD. I'm also sure there's others on here with better amps both pricier and cheaper who could put forward some recommendations towards possible good pairings. People should really look beyond the specs and price because the specs can look spectacular on paper with a high price tag to boot but when you pair headphone X to it it's not uncommon or unheard of to have a bad pairing and have a more powerful/expensive amp sound terrible with headphone X next to another amp which is less powerful/expensive. I think you own a K701/2, try experimenting a bit with amps the next time you're at a meet. It's quite fun to do IMO.
