Pros: Open, airy, detailed sound. Great for classical music

Cons: Build quality could be better

I heard this headphone a couple of years ago and fell in love with it. Since then I have been trying to find a mint pair at a reasonable price. This is a "poor man's electrostatic" as I have heard someone calling it. The mids are beautifully open and airy without a hint of hardness. The treble is soft and crisp. The bass is well defined but not in excess. They ar erelaxed, pure and genuine sounding. All in all, a legendary headphone. It's a shame AKG discontinued it.

Precise review. My thoughts exactly. Have been listening to the K501s for a couple of weeks now, although I feel K340 has a cleaner sound with a bigger soundstage. Anyway check out my review of the Senn Hd 250 L II if possible.
