This is my first post so I'm a total noob but getting my head around things.... I have a few questions that I hope some of you may be able to help me out with....
I have been reading a lot of threads and reviews for cans in my price range and what I am looking for. Basically, closed can under $500. I am pretty much set on either the AKG K550 or the Denon D2000. I know there are a lot of threads around comparing the two, the D2K has more bass and the K550 has better isolation etc etc...
My question is this, the K550 are going for around $300 (I'm in Australia) and the D2K for $499 - to me, and I know I am new to all of this, but that seems a big difference for cans that are rated so closely... This has me leaning towards the K550 just based on price alone.
I will really only be listening to punk rock/grunge/rock on vinyl at home.
Can someone tell me if it is really worth the extra $200 for the D2K or if I should just go ahead and grab the K550. I know the D2K have been discontinued and I'm really not interested in paying over the odds just for nostalgia reasons. Everything I have read on here leads me to believe these 2 sets are rated very closely together, I don't mind spending $500 but I dont want to spend that kind of money if I can get a set that provide a similar experience for $300.
I am not closed to looking at other contenders but these 2 seem to be the most popular in my price and spec bracket.
Thanks in advance for you assistance.
