Did you use dip8 adapters? They make rolling much easier ;p
Of course they make a difference

I used HD598 and K701 HPs.
Yes I would love a combo of airyness and forward vocals but the muses are very expensive besides currently not available in the market.
Does it make any sense to install just 2 pieces of muses01 in LPF section in order to benefit from better sound quality at a lower cost? OR the muses01 will perform to their best when they are replaced in both I/V and LPF sections. Why I am exploring this option is that most discussants have stated that the major changes in sound occur while rolling op amps in LPF section. Your guess?
I look forward to your experiment with muses and 4562s.
K701 are very transparent and natural sounding. They are comfortable too but if I have to wear for long sessions (3 hours and above), I may prefer 598. The comfort levels may differ from person to person depending on head size, do you wear glasses, etc.
I have never heard K601 so can't comment.
It has been mention much earlier in this thread the best sound of the LME family is the LME49710HA in the TO-99 metal can package.
Some guy in a chinese forum claim to have put muses01 in all 11 spot. One expensive exercise.
Original link is broken, but here is the link to the bloke that did it. I'm thinking of getting XLR & RCA caps too, but boy they are expensive.
