Those AKGs will represent a totally different sound and you will probably start appriciating good quality mids and highs listening to these. I've heard the HD272 which is pretty similar in response and signature and boy those are closed versions of these headphones but yet they sound very open so I can't imagine how "open" the open-back version of these sounds like. Very airy, vocals/acoustic instruments were such a pleasure to listen to for the price.

Goldenears have measured the AKG 240 if you're interested to see, what draw my attention especially how "natural" sounding it was rated to at a rating of 4 there and that's something I can agree with on HD272, very natural sound to it.

I like them a lot though, because of the price, the build, the comfort, bass impact, and good response to equalization.

 

Everybody has different ears and tastes. My slope is like an Olympic ski jump!!!

 

yipeeeee mo fo's!!

 

Some folks will tell you they get cannon like bass and great mids...nah...it ain't happening. ...this is why "cannon" is a very very abused and over used word on this site. Can't fight Science...Unless you're Christian:D

 

 

 

So yeah...a big Ski jump......and I love it. Personal tastes...very personal indeed.

Nice to see someone move in a new direction.

About time I posted in this thread again. After my fairly long hiatus, I've gotten my feet stuck into vintage cans...expensive it is too.

Wow, they got very nice scores.

I am very interested to see how a bass guitar sounds on those k240's.

Damn that talk of the TH600 is really tempting me. They could be my new "I'll get them when I get some significant cash" cans, maybe later on in the year. Although I'd always be in the shadow of the TH900 lol.

Save up longer and avoid the shadow all together. :D

It'd take me like a whole year to save for the 600s man, and that's if I get nothing other than them for Christmas and my birthday, but there's a whole host of other stuff coming out later in the year, audio and otherwise, that I am interested in. TBH if I get some significant cash and decide to spend it on cans I could go for the HE400s or something else like that.

I just heard the midrange is a bit laid-back which isn't to my taste, in a Signature DJ vs Fostex TH-600 comparison, the Signature DJs were even said to be slightly more forward sounding and that headphone is also said to be a very slightly bit recessed in the midrange by general concensus which makes me worried how TH-600 is. Maybe it isn't a problem for you like it probably isn't for majority amount of people as people tend to like a minor V-shape pretty often but for those people who like a more intimate/in-your-face midrange it may be a prob though.

What I'm trying to say is that for most people it's enough that the mids sounds clear (which they do with emphasized highs) but I personally want up-front sounding mids (the feeling of the vocalist just standing next to me) which I wouldn't expect to get in TH-600.

Another thing that can be a problem is isolation, these doesn't isolate well from outside noise. Lack of isolation and midrange laid-backness is probably the most noteworthy aspects that may not be good things to everyone. Most other things it probably does handle well though. :)

I agree with everything you said. The mids are a little laid back but moreso they are thinner sounding than other cans in comparison. My Orthos and even my HD600 has a much more thicker and lush mid in comparison, but once the TH600 is on your head for a while you actually forget all that. But if you reall need to be standing in the front row next to the singer, then the TH600 isn't going to give that to you. Its also got a massive soundstage which isn't going to help with that either. 

 

My main genre of music is EDM which I think the TH600 is made for, I have my other cans if I need to listen to other genres like rock and jazz. Isolation isn't an issue if you change over to HM5 pads, it makes a real difference to the comfort and isolation. I think it also improves the bass and brings forward the mids but closes the soundstage slightly.

 

I would still recommend these for bass centric music, they are the cans which give me the biggest goosebumps. Sorry, but I was just enjoying myself so much yesterday whilst walking to the train station I had to tell you guys with a pic.

Anyone randomly have your vision shake or feel the bass in your chest?

I have both happen all the time ._.

The sz1k are only 175 so you will be fine. Add 30 for shipping though. Might as well get the sz2k for 25 more.
