      Switching to he500 revealed 'another' Jotun. Really think he500 and jotun have a lot of similarities. Maybe too similar to have synergy.

      Very satisfied with Wyrd+Jotun combo.

      Just preordered Eikon. Am I an idiot? (yes I am..)

        Fellow idiot reporting in! I hate buying expensive stuff unheard and pre-order culture in general, but it's such a deep discount and I trust Zach, so here we are...

        Still painfully debating myself. I generally like Zachs tuning, but buying a headphone blind with no measurements and only a few subjective impressions? Tough choice. (will get cherry eikons if I preorder)

      Holy crap! Jotun's dac module freaked me out. Just assumed more versatility , but it's way more than expected..

      After carefully reviewed various impressions, impulsively ordered Jotunheim.
