I can attest to that particular pair of K340's sounding fantastic with tubes.

The k340 just feels too weird on my head. At that point I just don't care how it sounds anymore.

Thanks. I didn't get much direct feedback at the meet as people were busy with the new planars.

You certainly have a point. I usually wear it lying down on the sofa, so comfort isn't a particular issue.

I actually liked it more than the LCD-2+HPA-5000 combo, not to mention most other rigs there.

Instead of relying on professional reviews on these cans, can I ask you to enlighten me with your perspective on the hd580 & hd650? I have own the 580 for more than 10yrs and have been wondering about the 650's lately. What are the main differences?

The 650 was my upgrade from the excellent 580s, and to my ears the difference was mainly improved midrange clarity and high end extension, plus they image very well.  The 580's remain one of my favorites for all-around good sound and even though the Alpha Dogs are my new #1, I still find myself reaching for the 580's for quick plug in and listen when I don't want to fire up the amp.  The 650's take it up a notch from overall good sound into the realm of critical listening... and the Alpha Dogs, to my mind, top them with overall better balance.

1) T1

2) ATH-W5000

3) ATH-W1000X

4) HD650

 

Ranked in terms of both my preference and head time. I like the T1 and W5000 almost equally, and the the W1000X and HD650 almost equally. So perhaps the two pairs are more like 1 and 2. They present the music in contrasting signatures.

 

I mostly use the HD650 when I'm lying down, mainly because the narrowish shape of the cups allows you to lay your head down without the headphone being moved.

Thank you, Ableza, for the quick reply! Really appreciate it.

The PM-1 must be some headphone to knock your M90 off the top spot. I've been following your impressions in the PM-1 thread, too, and it seems you're impressed.
