However, this could just be from being new and unused, and I have no Idea how to check the density of foam...
It's just maybe AKG heard about the "foam-rolling" mod people had done to their AKG's, and decided to play around with it.
If you get bored one day you can take a picture of the foam for us.
I can compare it with my Q701s foam.
K601 and Q701 have different foams.Well different part numbers at least.
The Q701 does sound about 1% clearer with no foam, but I won't bother with that nonsense. I did once and I must have been extremely bored.
I believe K701 and K601 use the same foams. I'll have to double check. K702 and Q701 foams look different.
Here's some photos for references:
Q701 foam is rougher feeling and sparkly.
You'd think that AKG would not be crazy enough to make multiple variations of foams, but they do have different part numbers,.
