    @kfarndog, that was a really good read, enjoyed seeing your comparisons. I was surprised the Monk+ didn't come in higher, but we all experience/appreciate stuff differently.

    As an aside, when I get time I'll do a comparison with all my over-ear models, all budget-ish Chinese models (Superlux, ISK, Takstar and Somic) to see which I find of these has the best synergy with the Walnut. No idea if anyone will find it of interest or even agree with my findings, but I'll do it anyway :-D

    It'll not be the next few days though, I'm too enthralled listening to my new earbud arrivals (TY650 - so much awesome; TY320 - surprising me so far, exceeding expectations) and hopefully a further arrival in a few days (my Zen 2 has landed in the UK)

    Output impedance: phones out, 100Ω

    It's a joke ?? [​IMG]

    Walnut sounds great with 8Ω IT03, 60Ω Portapro and 250Ω DT880. I don't care what the output impedance is if it sounds good!

    I know, else I wouldn't have found so much gear I'm pleased with with a fairly decent hit rate. But some are better at it than others, and I find it hard to articulate why I like a particular sound.

    Out of interest, and I suppose it only relates to the Walnut in that I'm listening to these on the Walnut right now...What didnt impress you with the TY HP320? I know you've said that, of the TY earbuds you only rate the 650. I certainly agree with you that the 650 is excellent, possibly the best overall I've yet heard, and the TY HP32 not so great.

    But the 320 - Haven't tried them on any other player than the Walnut, and it's with the Monk thin foams (the TY foams are terrible), but I'm really liking what I hear with this combo. A nice level of bass without overdoing it, fairly laid back yet clear mids, not really any harshness around the treble. Not as rich and musical sounding as the 650, but sounding pretty nice with a bit of Finnish power metal :-D

    Really would be interested, as I'd have the Walnut and HP320 down as a really decent combo based on my limited listening so far

    @vapman Finally broke down and ordered the Walnut.  When it arrives I need to start converting all my files to an appropriate file type.

    You want to create a surround sound system with Walnuts or something, lol?

    The RMAA measurements on the last page are crazy, but it's all about sound preferences. When I finally get my Walnut, I'll measure IT03 FR Curve, compare to a low OI, age post it here so you can see how much the actual sound output of the is affected.

    I wouldn't expect detailed tracking updates. If you take pics, post them.

    My walnut ordered from eBay arrived at local post office! I'll start converting files tonight!
