Pros: Beautiful midrange, well balanced "old-time" sound, price

Cons: price, not sturdy enough

This headphone is one of the best headphones for classical music. Others in the same price range would be Audio Technica ATH-AD900, Beyer DT880, AKG k701. I think that k501 can even challenge some other dynamic headphones in higher price ranges. It is definately better than Sennheisers offerings HD650/600, for classical. This is a real classic, one of a kind.

You nailed it szoze. You have an appreciation for what this headphone does best, classical music. Not only that, its fantastic with acoustics. Enjoy its sweet melodies. My K501's are with me for life.
Had the K401. Sadly sold it before I got a proper headphone amp. They sounded very balanced too and the comfort is still unrivaled.
