AKG K501 love... - Page 68

post #1006 of 1010

This isn't K500 on the pictures, but probably K401. K500 has the 4-wires cable and I see there only 3-wires like in K501 and K401.

Not that it matters, but it's a K500. Probably for production reasons (pre-soldered, short driver cables) AKG cut the fourth wire at the headphone entrance on these soldered versions. Older versions with spring contacts have all four wires going into the headphones.

I know, and it wasn't a positive discovery when I made a balanced connection...

I am selling my k501s. The headphones are in excellent condition.

It remains in the most stretched position ....


Hi i have the same problem ... i did this ... with a sponge to clean dishes



I was really worried to damage anything.

Not very nice but fast and effective.  And very good in the summer ... 

When the sponge will be dirty i will just replace it with another one.

It is nice that almost all parts for k501 are still sold by AKG.
