So my first real headphones got delivered yesterday - AKG K550's and I am unsure if I made the right decision. I have upgraded from a pair of Senn HD205's. I am not an audiophile but I was expecting to hear a huge difference between the two and i simply dont. Is this normal to react this way to new headphones or should I have heard a big difference between these two????
I know there is a burn in process but I am thinking they wont sound a whole lot better than fresh out of the box or am I wrong again????
Also the clamping force on these is very weak, I have tried bending them to get a better clamp on my crust but its still not as tight as id like. Any suggestions on what I could try??
I have read great things about these headphones and I really want them to blow my mind but must say my initial reaction isnt great.
Another thing they are not very loud off my ipod so I may need an amp, maybe a Fiio E11 or E17?????
As I hadnt a lot of time with these yet due to work, the only CD quality music I have listened to so far is Enigma, Enya, Sade and Fleetwood Mac, the other listening was done on youtube and my itunes library which Im told is MP3 playback
Any comments welcome........
