Does the K171 Studio have a similar sound sig to the K271 Studio?

Question's in the title. I have the K271S. I like it.
Does the K171S sound the same? If not, how does it sound?


Thanks

How much alike? Can you give me a quick summary?

I have both but it's difficult for me to compare them because I get a much better seal with the K171 than with the K271, so I think I'm not really hearing the K271 the way it's meant to be heard.

They're quite similar in overall style - neutral, clear, good highs - but the better-sealing K171 sounds noticeably more vivid and live to me. The K271's lows may go a bit deeper. Overall the K171 gets a lot more on-head time than the K271.

But again, I don't get a good seal with the K271 and your mileage may vary considerably.
