 Wow man you are like a hungry cat waiting to trap a mouse....Like I said I couldnt audition the AKG K340 less than a year ago coz the seller wanted me to buy it if I audition them.  ... what is the conclusion you claim I make here? That the AKG K340 uses a DD for bass because electrets can't cough up the bass?Its a conclusion I can make by not listening/owning them. If you see a reason other than that to explain AKG's making a hybrid please enlighten me... I am curious.
 True that yet I must say companies stopped making electrets a while ago because they are more sloppy and distorted at lower frequencies. AKG K340 itself is a good example since it uses a DD for bass. Definitely newer materials might be able to tackle this problem better but I wonder how satisfying a solution it will be for hi-end audio enthusiasts or will it be applicable to us at all. Warwick audio and their FFLs will find use in PA systems in offices and other...
 Warwick audio don't have solutions for planar mags... what they have now is a self biased electrostat or what is more commonly known as electret. Eitherway It will not be able to reproduce bass without distortion, I have explained why in an earlier post. 
Close to 85 dB from this small driver! Distributed Mode speaker filling the room quite evenly with a wide sweet spot. Audio quality rather poor due to phone mic.
 Those ratings are based on voting alone and not necessarily correlated to SQ. I don't know how low the Hifiman RE-272 and Sony EX-1000 are rated but they are the best DD earphones I have heard. 
 Great going Suman!!! 
I am just curious about how you say timber of an instrument is 'better' or 'perfect' .....that is all ... of course you could compare a bad headphone with a good one and say so but you have not given me an answer than that you play certain instruments... so im to assume that you just know.. how cool! 
Playing an instrument doesn't really put things into perspective at all frankly...I play acoustic/electric guitars, bass and drums ... I went to all fourty concerts over a span of a decade because they were artists I liked, so yes I enjoyed them ....but I don't know which part of my post made you assume I enjoyed all fourty concerts to the satisfaction level of an oddiophool... what I thoroughly enjoyed sound quality wise - Tommy Emmanuel last winter - And especially my...
 Thank you for your impressions. . I was very close to listening them last year but the seller said I will have to buy it if I want an audition ..... and I backed off. It was for 170 Euros.It would be quite epic to put those old dogs you have to a detailed comparison - MDR-CD3k, AKG-K501, AKG K340, Linear 250-II and the SA-5k from my end. .
