If this has been answered already please excuse.

The 240 should have more than 1 micro sd slot.The 120 titan with its 2 slots and 128GB of internal storage is capable of the same storage as the 240!

Nah, internal storage is faster and more stable, which is an advantage over the Titan. More slots means larger package.

ALO is now selling a modded version of the IE800 with several balanced options - including one for the AK240.  Price: 1249 including cable and headphones.

http://www.aloaudio.com/alo-modified-ie800

Unfortunately, not much good for those who already own stock IE800s but maybe helpful to those who want to decide whether to mod their own or not.

Yeah I've read it :)
also I'm sitting with the AK240 In my pocket right now, such a lovely device <33

It does however get very hot with prolonged use.

Yeah, it does get warm and toasty... which makes the carbon fiber backplate make more sense.  Because imagine if that were aluminum?  :blink:  :D

Lol you haven't experienced "very hot" until you stuffed the hm901 into your pants pocket.... biggrin.gif

For those who are interested, you can find my brief comments on their comparison here.

Fortunately I never put stuff in my "pants" i tend to wear hoodies or training ... clothes (called?) 
with pockets, I've ruined to many Jack inputs by having stuff in my pants while running

:)

 

That being said, The AK240 is very expensive, but it's solid and I expect it to last me a long time also It's very high quality by my opinion and with the extra bass boost In my headphones, does it make my Symphonic metal / Power metal sound very crisp. 

My biggest issue is finding my music in FLAC though :D

Hmm the bands I've been looking for the most is called "Dreamtale" same goes for Krypteria.

I do listen to alot of nightcore/Trance aswell.
but I've kinda given up when it comes to that, since I honestly don't think you get much better versions than their typical MP3

Still interested in comparisons vs RWAK120

Unfortunately no...they could have at least sent a reply acknowledging that they received the email and was looking into it. Feel kind of disappointed with this.

Here's a funny story...    everyone comments on the structure of the AK 240 and the associated ergonomics and how you can't just look at the pictures.. you have to get it into your hands to understand it and all...    well the other day I had to go to Home Depot to get some paint and I was over by the area where the sand paper was shelved... and I notice out of the corner of my eye

a product by 3M...  its one of those sanding blocks...  I pick it up and its the exact same size and shape as the AK 240...  to the tee mind you...strange angles and all....

and yes, even when its just a 3M sanding block it still felt pretty good from an ergonomics stand point   :-)
