The K501's are a headphone famous for it's complete reversal of the 'v'-shaped sound signature common on most modern headphones, where the midrange is sucked out and the bass and treble are elevated to give an 'exciting' sound. Instead, they featured a very prominent midrange and rolled off both the treble and bass, thus giving an 'n'-shaped sound signature.
Are there any headphones currently in production that have this same sort of sound? The K701, I guess is the obvious choice, but some people think the sound signature actually changed a lot between the 501 and the 701, with the 701 becoming a lot brighter.
I'd be grateful for suggestions of all in-production sound-alikes of the K501, open-backed, close-backed, price range from $200 - $500.
Thanks in advance!!
