As it is, although I enjoy them they don't hold a candle to the DT880 in terms of transparency and dynamics IMO. It's a great second headphone for non-critical listening, that's it.
P.S. I have been spoiled by the Beyer DT880... before I got those I would have felt the K501 to be extremely 'expensive sounding'.. in fact the DT880 makes me feel Senn HD580/600 are somewhat cheap sounding...!
