Sadly I think that thread still has quite a bit of undesired posts of which I prefer if the impressions on that thread come here instead. If I had full control I'd close that thread (wait I almost do :D but that'll still be abusing my privileges).
I actually did some comparisons between the AK240 & HM-901 last night and posted my thoughts in the 901 thread. I will need to do a little more tests like with headphones instead of IEMs and check on driving capability tests on ortho drivers like the Alpha Dogs or V-Modex (V-Moda with T50RP drivers).
Yes, I totally understand. At the beginning (and even now sometimes) all the whining and A&K bashing was pointless. Now we know that IF the price of a AK240 is affordable, and one wants to get the last % out of their gear, it is worth the money.
I'm going to head over to the 901 thread and read your thoughts. Thanks Sean, you are certainly a driving force in H.F. and because of your contributions we all benefit. BTW, my Sean landed and started class today. I give the kid a lot of credit to go to a country so different than his own to live for 1/2 a year. And I'm jealous as he is in the electronic center of the world! And FT! is there to boot :)
