So you'd think that sets a trend for the x40's to be open and x70's to be closed, but nope the K140 is closed

 

I think that's it, unless there are more exceptions somewhere :confused_face(1): 

K140 comes in two flavours, one closed, and one open/semi-open.... just thought you needed to know... you know... to help you sleep at night.

Let's not forget the third flavor, the fat, wireless K 140.

Somehow that gave me the idea of a comic-strip where the cool audiophile kids are bickering about the benefits (or lack) of different cables, while the un-cool outsider audiophile kids laugh behind their backs while listening to their wireless headphones.

 

Well I'm glad that weird thought is over.

Just when I thought I had it figured out, you guys go and shatter my worldview.

 

Oh and there's all the xx2hd models as well, which I think were a regional/country dependant thing?

post #1250 of 1305

AFAIK the K242 was the French K241, so yes.

post #1251 of 1305

I believe we had the xx2hd in Canada as well. Maybe just the French speaking countries?

I have a black K1000 (#01030), K701 with 65th anniversary pads, and a K550. I can't get enough of the K1000.

LUCKY DUCK. What you using to drive em? I heard they need like 20 watts?

I'm currently using an Asgard 1, which puts 1 watt I believe. It sounds great to me, but I'll try it on other amps at the LA meet next week. I had my friend use them at the SF meet and he said they were amazing out of the Liquid Gold and Mjolnir, which I think put out around 8 watts.

I just heard people plug it into a speaker amp.

I don't have the pigtail adapter to try.

My AKG K142HD's had broke after 8 months of use. The soldering inside the headphone had failed, cable was fine. 

 

Just brought the headphones home from service yesterday, AKG/distributor gave a brand new pair, pretty nice!

Hey, that's not bad at all, especially considering it's really easy to fix.
