Sounds good with Jazz and classical. The amplifier requirement for the is not easy, and perhaps that’s one of the reason AKG discontinued it. The Shures revealed some key weaknesses in my set-up: Havent had a chance to compare them directly to K70x, but from what most people say – K should be more enjoyable to listen, more relaxed. Furthermore, the relative level of the bass end doesn’t change significantly when the phones are pressed closer to the head, which bodes well for consistency between users. The M-Stage would be a far better amp for the K than the Audinst.
