    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Oh wow this was a lot to read! Am still trying to get my head around it all but from the gists that I am able to get, it would seem that yes, while the AK70 seems to be able to drive the AFCs, it can only do so at a much higher volume than I am accustomed to using it at - it's at the 95-105 mark...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Nope I can confirm that I have to pump my AK70's volume up to 130+ for my 6XXs just like I do for the AFCs. Definitely hungry headphones, these two! Yeah like I told you earlier, I have tried bringing the 6XXs to the office which for me is conducive for critical listening - other than the...

    AEON, MrSpeakers' New Closed Back Planar Magnetic Headphone

    Thanks a lot for your reply and insight! Yeah I'm really loving them so far. I bought them for use mostly at the office (home will be my 6XXs) and was thinking the AK70 would be enough to be its source. Its 3.5mm output has 2ohm impedance.

I've actually given some serious thought to upgrading my closed-back headphones, and am quite close to settling on...

    Sennheiser HD650 & Massdrop HD6XX Impressions Thread

    Now there's a thought! Don't forget the shipping from Schiit to me though, which IIRC was about $50 with FedEx! Decisions, decisions!

    Help Me Complete My (Planned) Portable Setup!

    My phone is a pretty crappy Lenovo P2 that I bought during a Pokemon Go phase that didn't last very long (Brunei absolutely sucks for the game, weather-wise). I was more than happy to buy an AK70 at the time because I love how it reminded me of the good old iPod days. I am definitely more than...

    Help Me Complete My (Planned) Portable Setup!

    Hey there wow thanks so much for your detailed replies! It seems everyone on these forums really knows their stuff and knows how to explain everything! Perhaps one of the main reasons I am currently opting for a Mojo is because it's available at the one and only hi-fi shop in my country...
