I've amassed a few AKGs recently too. My collection:
K181DJ, K240 Sextett LP (x2), K240 Anniversary, K270 Studio, K270 Playback, K271, K4, Realistic Pro 50

 

I have to say, I'm rather envious about those K240 Anniversary :)

I have modded and recabled my AKG K240 Sextett (mid-production).

 

I have been listening to it for about 2 months but didnt want to write before because I wanted to adapt to the sound and I was afraid of the "new toy syndrome".

 

Now its time to write something... 

 

I have compared K240 Sextett (mid-production) to my Beyer DT150, Fidelio X2, AKG K7XX and Modded Fostex T50RP.

 

I can confidently say that I can sell them all, except the DT150 because I need a closed headphone with better bass.

 

Also K240 Sextett delivers the tiny details that other HP's were missing... It creates a special atmosphere around the instruments and micro-detailing is awesome. It sound very lienar too. Not bass heavy, not bass light.

 

I am in love :beyersmile:

 

I feed the K240 Sextett through my Darkvoise TH336SE tube amp (Fitz modded and with military grade tubes).

What are the mods you applied?

Hey. Aspiring fanboy here. 

 

Meh:

AKG K240 Studio

-used for web-trainings at work

AKG K67 Tiesto

-sound involving enough but I can't wear them with glass for too long

 

Portable:

AKG K550 (felt disks tacked to the baffle over the driver)

-hard to seal. can be a bit thin at times however it's the best detail that I can get out of my iPhone.

 

Casual:

AKG K240 Monitor

-darker and smoothed over with less detail but pleasant to listen to with a little more bass impact. 

AKG K401

-great balance of comfort, soundstage, warmth, a little bit of detail and some nice bass

 

Serious:

AKG Q701

-wonderful clarity with accurate bass and an absolute reference for vocals, future recipient of bass mod. 

AKG K701

-first real set of headphones, broke four years ago and currently out for repair (finally)

 

Future:

-Not really interested in the Sextett

-Wouldn't mind a pair of the K240DF

-Have the K701 re-cabled and paired with a single-ended Woo amp

-eventually acquire K812 Pro

 

System:

-Office: Spotify Premium > Mac Mini > Audioengine D1 > Headroom Micro Amp

-Living Room: Spotify Premium via Chromecast/Technics SL-D2 w/ Ortofon 2M Red > Yamaha R-S201
