I've read great things about the SoundMagic HP200 for $250... but never came around to buying them. Its open, but the pads are pleather. Some Shure pads should fit, but I'm scared to a blind risk. Who knows if it would have a positive effect on the sound or not...
I've read its bass is slightly above neutral, so velours might even it some... and add soundstage depth.
I was tempted, but chose the K612 when I was emailed that coupon.
I know it's probably a bit too early to ask, but how do you think they compare sonically to the K712?
