I need a quick help guys. I have already asked your opinion, I listen to 70s Rock and Alternative Rock 90s Rock Grunge, etc no electronic, HipHop, etc and I like a sound somewhere around Reference, I don't like music with too much coloration
I have the oportunity to get a AKG K240 MKii for a nice price, used but he says it's almost new. How does it compare to the Audio Technica AD-700 I was looking into, or the Shure 840, Sennheiser 558 that's going to be impossible to find for a nice price, etc? I won't run it with Head Amp but I read my Titanium HD soundcard is enough for these less than $200 phones.
Let me know guys, is the AKG a nice quality headphone or would you better search for something around the same price with better sound?
Where do you live?
The Senn and Shure are the best cans on yours list. The Shure is the best value here in the U.S., where the Senn map has significantly raised the price of the 558 since earlier this year.
The K 240 Studio is just a tad below the newer model and can regularly had at Amazon for about $80. That is probably a good reference for how good a price your are discussing for the MK II.
