Yea, they're DJ headphones though. Not sure what the guy was planning on doing with them

That, and maybe I could pay him a visit (to his account page, of course).
probably not, because he bought headphones for 300$ that aren't as good as 70$ k240's. Would you do that? I wouldn't. Anyone on head-fi wouldn't.

Sennheiser HD7 are $300 and are different... http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-HD7DJ-Professional-DJ-Headphones/dp/B00I117M2O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1399073861&sr=8-1&keywords=HD7+headphone

 

They are closed so you shouldn't compare them to your open headphones. Also are foldable and come with different cables as well as a carrying case.

I think he said PreSonus HD7, not Sennheiser HD 7.

Are they supposed to be exact copies of the AKG K240 Sextett?

There is a big difference between the newer K240 and a 600ohm K240 Sextett.

 

They have similar design style as a K240, but they sound similar to a Superlux or a Samson.

I highly doubt anyone would mistake the 2. Especially with the bright blue logo on the Senns

except maybe on forums with no pictures, and from a lesser known brand that has a headphone that is named the same as one from a very... No, extremely popular brand.... Like what just happened right now. biggrin.gif

All but the Samson's . I wouldn't comment if I didn't. The Sextetts are the best of the mentioned. They are becoming more and more rare.

On a forum, yes. But as you've already mentioned they are presonus, and I also refuse to believe anyone who calls themselves an audiophile failing to recognize a Senn when they see one.

Anyways, I just ordered a pair of T-Peos H-300, hopefully I receive them sometime within 2 weeks and I can start getting some reactions.

 Well, you can count me as one of them lol. I love the sound of the FXD-80 (I own the FRD-80, same thing but with a mic). 

 

Dude, waiting 2 weeks for anything is killer, let alone earphones. My heart goes out to you. :tongue:

It was his friend, and not an audiophile.

Exactly. But discord already sad they are presonus, so those correcting him telling him "pretty sure" they are Senns is pretty pointless.

Oh, that was me. I read that Discord's friend was talking about a headphone that was $300, and he said it was an HD7. Naturally, I thought of the Sennheiser HD7 because: I have never heard of PreSonus, and it was a better guess. The Sennheiser are retailing for $300, so it was kind of dumb for him to say that he bought his $70 headphones for $300 dollars.
