I don't find the upper mids lacking at all. However, the lower end and treble are fuller

mmm..well I read that the highs are very bright and I listen to medium-highs volumes (not dangerously highs) so I'm afraid the highs will be too harsh, is that the case?

Not at all. They didn't bother me and I'm pretty sensitive to treble. Everyone differs though.

 

The HD600 is better at higher volumes though, because it needs a bit of volume to wake up. The SRH1440 may get bright if you really crank it.

 

HD600 and SRH1440 are two my favorite dynamics (had them both at the same time).  At the time, I liked the SRH1440 more. If I were to pour money into my rig, I'd get the HD600 instead.

I asked the same question; the hd600 is better at higher volumes.

Lol yeah the new Shure open headphones have ridiculously forward upper mids. So much so that the rest of the frequency response is recessed.

And here everyone complains about the K701's upper mids...

Not everyone, MLE.

 

Be careful of the hyperbole.  IT WILL KILL YOU!

Of course I'm exagerrating. However, that is one area lots of people complain about the K701, and its pretty forward on it.

If you can get a good deal, get AD1000PRM
One of the best uppermid representation that i've ever heard

The audio technica website says it costs 1000 but amazon has them for 350 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0006OQY32/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all) Why are they so cheap on amazon?

 

EDIT: Is there a difference between the AD1000 and the AD1000PRM? And do you think they will be better for rock than the hd600? How's the bass in them? Also, the two main things I want its upfront mids and smooth highs, do they have smooth highs like the hd600?

As far as I know the normal price is around $600 and the secondhand is around $300
The high and mid are silky smooth, smoother than HD600 IMO. However the bass punch is so lacking on PRM, HD600 wins in bass hands down. HD600 is a better choice when handling rocks because the AD1000PRM presentation is too mellow for rock. Even though the PRM speed is still faster
As for the AD1000PRM and AD1000, my friend said it's different but I haven't got a chance to hear AD000 so I can't tell

You deserve a medal for that. Head-Fi graph of the year. I use use that for a HE-400 review and that only. No words, no explanations required. Just that graph

I have to play Devils advocate here, DON'T BELIEVE GRAPHS!!!! THEY ARE SIMPLY NOT AN OBJECTIVE STATEMENT ON THE HEADPHONES SOUND!!!! I for one thought the Grado RS2 to have a neutral treble, others will not. Graphs really mean nothing. You don't listen to headphones with your eyes, trust your ears and read reviews based on HEARING the headphone.

While I agree with you, TMR's graph is pretty damn accurate as to how they sound like.
