Haha I tried the N40s as well and I though they had good tuning, just lousy drivers.The sound got more detailed, bass became better, compared to X1, where low bass was not good, highs became more detailed and complex. You can't use any of X7s without an AM module.
I bought the 1 generation of the X7, which was about $320 for a body only + $99 for the amp.
It also depends on the earphones you use. My transition was - Fischer DBA-02Mk2 -> Dunu2000j -> AKG N40 (a complete waste of money) -> Dunu Falcon C. Plus tip rolling. From Comply, Spinfits, down to JVC Spiral Dots and even lately Azla – Sedna – Ear Fit. But still using the JVC's. Love both DUNUs.
