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.

Hey Bru!

 

Sorry.

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

Long ramble.

 

Summary:

These will bang hard and keep a very flat mid and high end with the vent mod. Otherwise it's a studio can. I modded it to hybrid Basshead/Studio

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?
