Ok, that's a catchy article and one that I'm sure has been discussed at infinitum...
 
I'm about to order customs. After reading a boatload, I still have the question...
 
The best portable / semi-portable sound I enjoy comes from (in this order):
 
Mac + Ray Samuels Predator + AKG-701
Mac + Ray Samuels Predator + HD-600
Mac + Ray Samuels Predator + HD-650 (yes, like the 600 better)
Fiio X3 + AKG-701 (so no extra amp)
Fiio X3 + Headroom Desktop + HD-600
 
So you probably get the signature sound I like.
 
I did not like the Etymotics I used to have (ER-6): good midrange but too thin sounding.
 
QUESTION: Will the K-10 deliver a body comparable to the above? Or will I be left wanting more body? Not sure I want to call it "bass" cuz I think it's more like bass/mids...
 
Thx!!!
 
Miguel

No opinions? :)
 
To be clear, the above are the only setups I've listened to carefully and enjoy... There are better ones of course...

hi there, im pretty sure the k10 has enough bass. the akg701 is pretty bass light imo, so you shouldnt have too much problems

Yeap, agree. Now the ordering process... Good things take time and effort I suppose...
 
Anyone has a recommendation for an audiologist in NYC?
