All Hail the mighty K1000
The problem with the K1000’s is that they are true reference headphones. This means that they show every fault elsewhere in the chain, from IC to source material to amp and source, everything is shown as it is. This is why the K1000’s are my reference. It’s also why I have several other less revealing headphones for listening to source material that is a little less than stellar.
Kurt: “They are downright torture if you have a big head.”
There are few people who have a larger head than I do. Charlie’s dad (Stewart) was really talking about me here (http://home.comcast.net/~yikes/axe-head.wav
) The point being: Even with my planetoid like cranium I find the K1000’s supremely comfortable. The only issue being that lying down is not an option.
morphie “Ive never actually heard those before, but they seem to be the ultimate headphones - lack of bass without pads - lack of soundstage with pads, I think those are the only weaknesses... If im wrong feel free to flame me for posting about something i havent heard”
This is a forum, you can post about whatever you like (within the rules). The question is why would you?
Ha! Just bustin on ya.
As far as the Bass goes. It’s not the deepest bass, nor is it the loudest bass, what it has is the best Bass of any headphone (Tone, pitch, definition, speed, and dynamics)
Oh mighty K1000’s how do I love thee, let me count the ways…
