I shared this in the team AKG thread. 
I changed my attitude regarding the Sextett and picked up a pair of the LP's after months of not being entirely sold on the K240M and bass-modding my Q701. I am probably still in the honeymoon phase with these however I am jumping between rebuild/refurbish these Sextett's and sell everything else, and rebuild/refurbish these Sextett's, and maaybe keep the K701.    Had a funny scare with a bad recording last night though, absurd distortion Norah Jones' first album, first...
Full Compass appears to carry older replacement parts from AKG/Harman and they sell DF capsules installed in baffles for about $60/piece. http://www.fullcompass.com/prod/035675-AKG-2058M07020   SO.. if I have K240 Studios which I do not like and wanted to tinker with, why SHOULDN'T I buy those replacement DF drivers and drop them into my K240 Studios?    Also, were there any other significantly different design elements in the DF compared to the Monitor/Studio? Will...
I  just picked one of these up on the cheap. How did your mods turn out? 
Hey. Aspiring fanboy here.    Meh: AKG K240 Studio -used for web-trainings at work AKG K67 Tiesto -sound involving enough but I can't wear them with glass for too long   Portable: AKG K550 (felt disks tacked to the baffle over the driver) -hard to seal. can be a bit thin at times however it's the best detail that I can get out of my iPhone.   Casual: AKG K240 Monitor -darker and smoothed over with less detail but pleasant to listen to with a little more bass...
If you want something like the Koss Porta Pro but taking it to the next level I think you can't go wrong with the Sennheiser PX 100-II. They're currently $47 at B&H. 
 I'm expecting my Headroom Micro Amp to have enough juice for this. The Yamaha R-S201 in our living room is a wildcard. I don't know if the headphone output is driven the old fashioned way, off of the amplifier, or if it's a separate opamp. 
I've got Q701's and K550s already that I bought after a channel on my K701 failed. I am only now just getting around to repairing them.    This morning I snagged a K401 on eBay and I've been bidding on a pair of K240 Monitors. All of my headphones are post-Harman. What can I expect the pre-Harman cans to do differently? 
I am sending mine out to get repaired by Headroom this week. About three years ago now, the wiring in the rightside cup came undone which I believe is a common issue. I can't wait until I can compare them to my Q701 and K550 that I purchased after the K701 went bad, as well as the K401 that I should be receiving in the mail on Wednesday. 
I've debated doing this. I have a 2007 Macbook that I only retired because of it's **** battery life. If plugged in all of the time it would be fine and probably perfectly suited to feeding a DAC as a source.
