Love the AKG house sound!

Smooth & Sweet, my K701s are perfectly comfortable for long listening sessions, like I like it! (must look into the AKG K81DJs)

Suggest Team AKG deserves a dedicated smilie!!! They make me smile;=}

Me too!

AKG K271S owner here... by far, my favorite cans. Leaning heavily towards the K701's....

I own:

K1000 - amped with the Pass Labs Aleph 3, these are my favorite headphones of all I currently own or have owned.

K340/w velour pads - Have a very smooth sound and a magical midrange. Although I do enjoy them, the jury is still out as to if they will stay in my collection or not.

AKG K81 DJ - Love them for when I need a closed portable solution. I use them with the foam inserts removed. I still have comfort issues with them (and yes, I employed the 'tong' stretch technique). If they don't loosen up enough to where I can wear them for more than a couple of hours without discomfort, they go - which is sad, because I really like the way they sound.

have owned:

AKG K701 - Sold them because their sound signature just didn't 'do it' for me - was a bit too laid back for my tastes. I also just couldn't get past the 'iPOD toilet white' color scheme, YUCK! Normally I am only concerned with the way headphones sound, but I have to make an acception in this case - holy crap these things are fugly. Among my collection of other headphones they looked like a big white turd floating in a punchbowl. PLEASE AKG: change the colors of these things A.S.A.P. I might even give them a second chance if they had a version that was in a black or grey non-glossy finish.

No offense to K701 lovers BTW, beauty (as they say) is in the eye of the beholder.

I digress.

Yeah I think I qualify as an AKG fan, but I certainly don't consider myself as being 'elite'. I think 'insane' would be a better adjective to describe my condition/affliction when it comes to headphones and headphone related gear.

I love the AKG sound, K1000 and K501 in the past...

And briefly auditioned the K601...

But I don't have any of them right now.

But I still do love them.

Does that make me an elitist?

Didn't we do this a year back? Oh well, I suppose an update is in order.

Own: K340, K81DJ
Previous: K271S, K240S, K26P
Want: K1000
Heard: Pretty much all of them, though I am still waiting to hear the Sextett and/or Anniversary Edition K240's as well as the K4 and the K145/S.

post #43 of 1468
Have a pair of K501 and loving them.. Next pair of headphones will prob be a pair of K701 so count me in!
post #44 of 1468
Owned (in order):
K501 - didn't have sufficient amp at the time to drive them
K1000 - near perfect, but too bright in my system at the time
K340 - nice, but moved on to other cans
K340 (same time as other)
K1000 - still too bright in that system
K270S - nice inoffensive closed can
K1000 - finally got the right system, but too open for NYC apt
K1000 (backup pair same time as last)
K26P - 1st gen, good sound, but not convenient for my usage
K81dj - great portable sound, but too uncomfortable

Still own:
K270S (boxed up, not used in a bit)
K1000 (one near-new backup pair in box, not used in months)
