Anything below #4xxx are certainly bass heavy versions.

I was informed that the ones above 10,000 are the bass heavy ones....is this incorrect?

I'm pretty sure that it's incorrect.

I would personally cut the D7000 off the list, as I would personally get something quite different sounding from your current headphones. The K1000 (FWIR), would be a lot different from the rest of your headphones and is quite a gamble to whether or not you will like them. If you do, well then great If not, you could sell them with no loss and give the T1 a try.

The result was obvious as the low serial number one had more bass. It was confirmed by several other head-fiers at the meet who weren't told which one's which. Moreover, AKG themselves had confirmed it.
OK, buy a headphone where they got it right at the start, then proceeded to screw it up.

From what I have read its the lower serial numbers.

How do you know they didnt design them to be bass light, and adjusted their goals (screwed up as you say) to have more bass as a speshul edition for a specific market? Considering how every other AKG that was designed after 1985 (that I have heard) sounds I'd bet I'm right. AKG dosn't build bass monsters, they build headphones with very flat upper mids.
