I recently got a pair of these and was very surprised to find them very neutral sounding contrary to views on here of them being bassy. I find the bass to be well integrated with the rest of the frequencies and not emphisised at all though maybe with some more burn in the bass will come out. (this happend quite dramatically with my 141's and they really DO have emphisised bass in my opinion). I actually find the neutrality in the K240S to be a good thing and am very pleased with the overall sound. The mids are very nice though I think the SR80i bet them for detail and my HD668b and even the closed Superlux HD660 had better imaging/soundstage. I have now ordered some K601's to try and get the best of all these headphones. Damn this website! I feel I have a devil sitting on one shoulder and an angel on the other sometimes!
Anyway just wondering if anyone else had a similar experience with the K240S? I have read that newer K701's now have more bass and maybe AKG have done the opposite with these following consumer feedback? I noticed that many of the bassy descriptions are from older threads.
