If the two are essentially the same, I wonder if the extra set of pads and cable is worth the extra $70? How comfortable are the velour pads to the pleather and if I get the non mkII can I change the pads out if I find them uncomfortable?
AKG wants to make more money by changing the looks of a venerable product?
There would be no point in providing two different set of pads unless you can change them out.
For me the $70 price spread (or whatever it was when I bought mine more than a year ago) was not worth it.
