For some reason I thought they were supposed to be velour. I wouldn't know since I've never seen one... Now that you mention it, they seem a bit flat too. They could look a lot worse though. It could also be the bitterness talking.

They were probably always flat, but they had a fake leather covering on them that has flaked off.

oh my!  K1's?  I didn't even know they existed.  Those look sweet!  Amazing headband design they should bring those back.  Along with all their other good phones.

I'm still using these 35 year old Audio Technica AT-706's. I have no idea how they would sound if they were almost new

Those AT-706's are some classy lookin' phones.

post #118 of 1096

those Akg K1 are sooo nice..

keep drooling over the headband :P

 

Googling for some modern nice materials(carbonfibre?) and some nice phones,or just drivers.

Then I´m heading to the shed to trying to copy that headband and make a sleek portable HP :)

What are you driving you AT-706s with?  A previous owner reterminated mine with a TRS plug, and modded the transformer with a TRS jack.

The Sony DR 4C reminds me of a doctor's stethoscope
