greetings AKG gurus!!
Headphone n00b here...basically im just looking for headphones for pc and ipod use. Ive already treid the Sennheiser (px-200, HD 497) and Grado (SR-60) sound, and now want to head over to AKG territory.
Now i really wanted to try the k81dj, based on glowing reviews and a broad fanbase over here, but i just cant seem to find it here in the Philippines. If i want it bady enough ill probably order over the net.
Most of the local distributors here have AKG, but mostly the low end made in china models (k101, k66, etc.). However, i was able to find a store that carried an AKG k240 studio, and i REALLY liked how it looked. Ive done my research and know it has 55 ohms, and CAN be driven by an ipod (i plan to puchase a govibe v5 soon anyway).Plus its within my price range.
Now i plan to use these mostly for ipod and portable use (the sr-60's are just too open, and my px-200 is frayed beyond recognition). Is it recomemndable? How is the SQ, how is it for ipod use, and how is it over-all? I really want to get the k240 studios, but iwanted more feedback first.
If the recommednations dont come, ill either order overseas for a k81dj, or just probably get an e2c or e3c for outside use. Thanks in advance peeps
