AKG K501 love... - Page 46

post #676 of 992
Ok
add me to the list of lovers of the 501 .
these are beautiful and very musical. My biosciencegeek cmoy however is just not enough to power these bad boys, when i listen it feels like there is something being held back. I just purchased a ibasso p2 which is on its way and reading the reviews on this amp it sounds like it was made for the 501's. I remember reading somewhere (maybe this thread) about people re cabling there phones and wondering about the wiring. if you look here http://www2.akg.com/mediendatenbank2...5d21891b68.pdf it is clearly laid out for all the DIYers in the crowd.
i will post more when my amp arrives

i am a bit skeptical about power requirements, because these sound fantastic out of my carrie/grub. maybe ill get un-lazy and bust out my millett hybrid/gamma1 to see if it really makes a difference, but really have no incentive to right now as k501=bliss.

The 501s arent as hard to drive as my 601s, but I much prefer them amped over unamped.

Hi,want to ask a question..do the K501 have the ring foams inside like the K601,K701??

 

Because the one that i gotten does not have the thin foam like my 601 and 701,thanks thanks

 

I would say that the K501 have just enough bass for classical music after just hearing them for 1 hour after gotten it yesterday :)

Mine doesn't have those thin foams.

post #681 of 992

Mine didn't either, if I remember correctly.

Dear all,

 

I'd like to ask how to replace the rubber band on both cups?

 

After some year's usage, the rubber band (link between the cup and the headband) becomes loose. I want ( and try) to replace it, can i DIY??

 

Thanks a lot.

So beastly

I think there is a step-by-step procedure, with pictures, on AKG's website, showing the owner what to do to change the elastic bands.

just got in my pair - are they supposed to produce a quieter sound? because my current pair is pretty soft at average volume levels

post #687 of 992

You kinda have to amp the [expletive] out of them. What's your source?

post #688 of 992

ah, ok then

 

currently it is just out of my ipod but hopefully my pico amp/dac will be coming in the mail within the next couple of days (the site said two weeks, i dont know how close to the estimate they usually ship out but today would be two weeks)

post #689 of 992

That should help with the volume, but you may need more power than that can give to get the best sound they're capable of. I went through a few amps before I found one powerful enough to sound to my liking.

what setup do you end up using?
