What cable are you using? I have 2 cables, the Whiplash Twau Ref and Ted's litz silver cable. What I found was that with the Whiplash cable I experienced issues like sound cutting out from one of the earpieces when I moved the jack around in the AK240's balanced out while Ted's cable had no issues whatsoever.

No problem with my DIY (converted my Tralucent Uber) balanced TRRS so far.

Addendum: My DAC/Amp One is now fully charged and I can say without reservation that the synergy between the Amp One and Ref.1 is superb. Maybe it isn't the most expensive amp that one can choose to pair with the Ref.1, but its not likely that one could tell that from the sound!

 

Great impressions, I'm starting to get really excited about receiving mine. You've also got me curious about the DAC/Amp One now, I'll have to read up on it.

Keep your uber and it helps to extract the most out from your Ref.1.

different, and I need more time, but I think with fast modern, punchy music, Ref 1 will be hard to beat. That bass man...

I briefly tried my Whiplash TwAu with my Ref.1 and IMO, the stock silver/gold sounded better. I will spend some more time comparing as soon as I get a chance.

UPDATE May 31: After some more in-depth comparisons, I have revised my initial opinion. I find that the TwAu to be a good choice for pairing with the Ref.1. An overall more expansive soundstage and the lighter weight and flexibility make the TwAu a very nice choice for listening while on the move. I do like the 90 degree plug as well and, so far, have found no downside for its use.

Michael, dare I ask how does the Ref1 compare with Roxanne customs smily_headphones1.gif? I had been following you on the Roxanne thread. I am sure they are different. How do the two compare for the bass?

Still have not received mine. 3 weeks to get the Ref 1 and over 6 months and counting for the Roxanne.
