Kenwood KH-K1000 - Page 2

I corrected the price in my first post. I originally quoted $360, but that was with shipping (and additional insurance) included. Without shipping they are $315.

Audio Technica (W5000, A700, A500 for instance).
Exactly, most likely an AT-sourced phone. It's neither here nor there, couldn't care less who makes a phone, so long as it sounds great.

It is intriguing, no doubt. I look forward to more comments about this pair .

How about sibilance (my main complaint with headphones)?

You won't find them any cheaper... even cheaper than the US street price of $365..

The connector on the cable is another really big hint it's AT - esp the screw on adapter.

Except that Denon and Beyer also use the same screw-on connector...

No sibilance. Not a hint. They are rather more dark than sharp sounding.

Cool. I've always been a 'deal hunter'.


Have you heard the AD2000's? If so, does the Kenwood come even close SQ wise? I know they're different, and favor to multiple genre's, but I was just curious.

Yes I owned the AD2000 for a while, but that was a long time ago.
I didn't like them, I preferred the K701, so I sold them again. I found the AD2000 did weird things with imaging and was just "too much of everything" for me. They are on my second chance list though, if the opportunity arises.
As I remember it the Kenwood has a more substantial sound and less airy / extended highs. The mids of the Kenwood are a bit more forward, I like it better this way. The overall balance of the Kenwood is just way better.
The Kenwood sounds natural.
One of my criteria is the sound of applauding people. With the Kenwood it sounds like clapping hands and not like static.
