phoneprone, that's awesome! I sure hope you like them, and I bet you will!

Bootman, good to have you on the team! Joelongwood, I know that when you get the K501's, then the K401's, the the K301's, the the K1000's, that you will join us as well.

The rest of you, rot in hell! Team AKG will rule all! waahhaaahahaha!

Why rick, that sounds like a challenge! Well, please excuse me while I tuck my tail firmly between my legs and run.

Well rickmeister, you gotta admit that your precious Grados certainly won't be winning anything construction-wise: I'm afraid to pick my SR80's up these days for fear that they'll fall apart in my hands! Just admit it, grados are obsolete.

I'll play for any team that has some good headphones. I just received my AKG K501s and from the little amount of time I've spent listening to them, they sound pretty damned good to me. They are a definite improvement over my vintage K340s which were top-of-the-line in 1980. In particular, they are far more detailed and the clarity is much greater. The wide soundstage is still there, but everything sounds much clearer and less veiled, particularly vocals. I think I'm going to really like these. Then again, I like all of my headphones.......which is why I consider myself a member of many different teams (Grado, Sony, Sennheiser, Koss, and AKG).

Wooooo, go team AKG!

These headphones have been severely over-looked. It seems everyone recommends the same bunch all the time whenever someone asks for recommendations.. Makes me wonder what other gems are out there, waiting to be discovered.

I think my HP-1s have a word or ten to say about that...

Isn't it about time that good ol' JMT comes in and say something like "you guys are comparing apples and oranges again?" Well before he comes in, I'm in team Grado

A dream come true. Team AKG finally. My 501 lets me forget about equipment and just listen to music.

Join us! [Multiple team memberships allowed]

xander: Wondering about other undiscovered gems? That's easy. I recommend trying the beyerdynamic DT531 and the Philips HP890.

Greetins from Munich!

P.S.: And then there's still the brand new K240 Studio to try - and the K141 Studio which might give the SR80 some competition especially in portable use...

It's funny... With the SR80s, then the HD570s, it was like half my collection sounded bad, but some CDs sounded good. Not great, but good. Now it's like almost ALL of them sound excellent. Maybe a few sound iffy...

Also, Neruda.. I've been listening to these things a LOT lately, sometimes at pretty high levels. Now, while listening to heavy drum hits, I'm starting to notice some impact. Not sure if theyre breaking in, or if I'm just getting used to the bass. Theres still not as much impact as the SR80s, but it's a lot better then it was.

I also noticed sufficient bass on most tracks, but with some CDs they sounded a bit anemic. I listened to one CD in particular, GnR's Use Your Illusion Two when I first strapped them on. There was pretty much no bass to speak of. Now it seems perfectly balanced. Either the cans are breaking in.. Or I am. Who cares, though. I'm loving it.

P.S. Theres half donut shaped rings imprinted in my hair.
