So I generally use headphones at home on a portable amplifier or directly out of my iPod. I've been VERY interested in the K550 for a few weeks. I'm looking for good isolation. That brings me to a few things that have made me a bit apprehensive about buying these headphones.
- Isolation: I hear they don't provide a very good seal
- no detachable cable: I'm worried about sound going out on them.
- I hear they don't have very good bass. What I want to know is how they compare to the AKG K240. If I'm used to the K240 will I not mind the bass on these, or is it actually less than the 240?
Next to the V-Moda and Momentum, these are the cheapest semi-portable phones. I feel very limited in options for portable phones around this price range. If someone could reassure me why I would want these I would appreciate it.
