Does anyone have any idea how good they pair up? I was trying to use my Fiio X3 with them but it makes them way too warm for my taste.

 

I love X2 with magni2u. It tames the bass and the highs are more detailed and airy. I'm not using Modi2u (or any external DAC) but I recommend mag2u.

That's good to hear. Hopefully I can find a Magni 2 at a good price then. I'm going to audition the M2 but chances are I'm going to return it anyway because it has some pretty unreliable QC. It's been kind of difficult finding something that doesn't color the X2's or really any of my headphones too much.

Please do report back with your impressions. Im curious as to how these compare to the AKG's.

I've given a listen to the Fidelio X2 paired with the SMSL M2, and it feels like the high are just getting killed and the bass is too much on the headphone. It seems to remove the balance that it has, for my other head[hones it didn't do it so much, but I definitely don't like what its doing to them. I guess I'm going to return it and then wait until I can get a Schitt Magni 2.

What would you guys say is your preferable lossy codec for the X2?
