How many headphones may have sibilant peaks over K550's price range anyway?

And what about the well appreciated beyerdynamic DTs? (not the tesla)

Aren't those peaky?

Audeze LCD-2. One of the best cans in the world and frequency response looks peaky on high frequencies. How is that?

Sennheiser HD800:

Look treble amount is personal preference.

 

The resonance is just bad. And its been proven. I doubt any higher end headphones that are worth anything have it (this obviously excludes the disastrous D7100)

I've heard about sennheiser HD700's having resonances. I didn't hear them in my AKG, that doesn't mean i claim there is no resonance.

I found those graphs interesting i put above. I don't understand the difference between peaks in those compared to K550's graps. They look quiet peaky too.

I sent my AKGs back anyways and grabbed a used HD580 instead.

Just to note, I don't think the k550 are bad, they have their strengths (soundstage, imaging, isolation, comfort). But their weaknesses are more.
