I already own a K271 and wanting to get open headphones for primary use since 271's discomfort is getting long on the tooth. Having already read various threads on the subject matter, HD600 seems like what I should choose.. again. Since I've owned a pair of it in the past and was satisfied with it. I did demo K701 last week, however, and was blown away by its transparency and detail. I wasn't listening to it long or loud enough to detect that infamous high freq. glare.
The price difference between the two are really marginal and I'm already familiar with their said strengths and weaknesses... I just wanted to gather more opinions on the table by making this thread. HD600 has more bass but 701 has that prat which is just as important to me in my music preference- electronica. I'm also a picky listener when it comes to soundstage but 701 is suppose to have that 'glare' which I did not hear. Does it only become obvious at high volume listening? I tend to listen to headphones at low volumes only. Also the points I'd like more insight on are- musicality, coherency. which headphones do those better? let the battle continue. :)
