Don't know .....I have Shure SE 846...."my favorites😊....and one pair of Sennheiser iE800 so I guess combined it's close in price not too far off 😘

Yes but I think even high end AV receivers have this feature and yes you may turn it on or off...I also wish it was included .....not high on the list but would be nice to have

People tend to upgrade one piece at a time I'm guessing.  After buying an AK240, most other than Rudi need to take a breather!

I can't think of an IEM more expensive than the AK240?

If this is not a joke, can you let us know more about the name of this IEM?
