First rule of DERP-CLUB: NEVER talk about DERP-CLUB! No Idea what you talking bout man
I'm right there with you Man.
So I am really loving the AKG additions to my headphone stable. The K545 & K550 have really grown on me, bringing me back to reference class "balance" and detail that frankly, the GRADO SR225e I had kind of scared me away from. What I DIDN'T expect was that the AKGs would deepen my love of my Basshead sessions when I go off the deep end! I've been recovering from surgery since yesterday, so you know, nothing but TIME. OH MAN. Got stir-crazy, and no one else was home so I just snapped. Whiz Khalifa, EPMD "Da Joint", Tyler The Creator "Slow It Down" (Laughed my butt off!) and went on from there. It was seriously TIGHT. I guess I had desensitized myself to bone-rattle from using the SZ-2000 for so long. When I walked away from them for a while, coming back to them just made me appreciate them all that much more. And mind you, this was straight through the ASGARD 2! I never felt up to getting up to hook directly to the iDSD Micro and applying Bass Boost. (Moderate relative to other offerings, agreed; but as the ASGARD 2 has NONE, it would still have added something.) Funny thing is that I went back and listened to each with the AKG K545s and discovered that there is ALL shades of whacked-out happening in the background that I never heard before. There were the known "knowns", but hearing those unknown "knowns" was almost like listening to new songs. (I then went back to the SZ2000s and blew them up again with BASS!) Yeah.... GOOD times....
I was switching from IEM (Aurisonic 2.5) to SZ and the detail and synth is so clear on the 2.5 (Wiz track) but the slam is so ******* brutally awesome on the SZ which I hadn't heard for a week.
Nothing does everything in the headphone/IEM world so we need some of them all.
I don't need 3 sources but whatever **** it..I'm a der................
