M-Audio HDH 50 / AKAI AP-HPH-002

I will review these cans soon.
They have been modified per instruction in such a way:
The cans I had forgotten about because "Studio" cans is not what I was hoping for are now very well tuned low end friendly cans.
They will be reviewed soon.
I have been swamped with other cans and stuff.
The mystery is if the M-Audio are rebranded Akai only or Re-branded with the driver vent.
Am listening to the Akai with this and it bangs and plays the mids very very very well. The Akai need the mod...the M-Audio...I dunno yet so the review could be pointless.
These are bass certified now.
The Akai is a M-Audio in a different shell. Identical shell actually sans the cup caps.
The modified Akai sounds a tad brighter and hits harder than the Q40 but that's a 50mm driver v.s. a 40mm. The M-Audio release regardless of the diaphram vent mod is going to hit harder if you want it to.
As far as I am aware a 1st week of March release was halted and vendors in Europe have been taking pre-orders for over a Month?? The Price of the Akai has risen 10 to 20 bucks since then but the M-Audio has been the same?
Facebook has M-Audio releasing in Summer...you got a few months still.
IF you are making pre-orders stop...the company FB page is clearly stating a Summer Release
Nice. I've always wanted to visit japan. I got some family in Okinawa. Are you there for military? I noticed the training gear in your pic and I guess you got badboy from...Tito Ortis, or the old school bad boy stickers we used to have here in Hawaii?
