I have to agree Mick. I would almost say the sound stage not only is tall and wide but it creeps in toward the ears. The sound is closer than I have experienced before. It also has a beautiful smooth quality that I would almost call an aura. My ears like it very much, and it has a consistent emotional impact too.

Re lower volume required - experience has been that this is to do with a greatly reduced noise floor, so you’re not battling noise and distortion to hear detail. It’s a wonderful thing to have musical impact and presence at lower levels.

I should add that’s about 1 week into Accession being plugged in.

Update: Accession MM reached another level of performance last night. I know the sound is good when I stop caring about sound quality and the music is just there, washing over me. Also, not sure if this is Accession or me but I have found that suddenly I don’t need to listen at as high a volume. The music is very present and clear at a lower volume. This isn’t something where I deliberately decided to set volume lower because I felt it was too high. I just don’t need it as high now. Strange. 

In any case, the sound is phenomenal. I find especially pleasing with acoustic instruments, including acoustic guitar/vocal, classical, and jazz. It excels with every musical style though.

Sorry, I don't know how they sound as I haven't used them. I am far from a headphone expert. I suggest the K240 Studio because it's less than 50 quid so it's a low risk investment. The MKII version with velvet pads might be more comfortable. I don't think you can always attribute a certain type of sound signature to a manufacturer/brand. There are sometimes exceptions.

I'll look into them.

Any idea how the Massdrop K7XX are? There's a set for sale that I could probably get. I don't really know how I will mesh with the AKG sound. I understand highs are more present but maybe I'm wrong on that?
