Look like they share same driver as the 580...
That lil' driver sure gets around.

The akg-180 looks like hyper stylized robot boobs reminding me of the female robot in Fritz Langs 1927 film "Metropolis".
I hope you are joking about mentioning them at all... the K180 are the worst pieces of crap I ever heard. (Yes, I can drive those 600 Ohm things properly on my Woo 6, it doesn't change anything.)

Sure love their looks, though.

^^^Definitely looks like something out of the original, "day the world stood still"

Too bad, I'd really like to hear impressions about them. Around here, the 10R are not to be found (not even when they were in production).

My post wasn't probably clear enough, I mentioned them in the context of the OP mentioning liking "severe Bauhaus style" and metal construction, the k180 came to mind for visual design reasons and not as a "best" sounding can.

Can we stop this talk about the Sextett until I have been able to get a pair?

Hehehe,

The sextett will be a good match for the Monitor 10...
I remember the 240DF, sound more clear, and very very flat, more like acoustic version of the sextett.

Gosh that was confusing. O.K. so the AKG K240, the original version from 1975, is the Sextett. Got it. Why is it called the Sextett? Sounds naughty.

Because of the six passive drivers in each earcup...

Look like the vintage studio headphones still kicking.
So what's it gonna be, in the final round...

K240 Vs K340 Vs Monitor 10.
