What should I buy: V-Moda M-100 or AKG K550? - Page 2

post #16 of 19

I'd go for Sennheiser Momentums over the k550s. I had the AKGs and was super, super disappointed by them.

The thing about the K550 is that at first it sounds impressive because it's on the bright side of the spectrum, lending a pretty clear, open sound. Then you hear a trumpet and throw them off your head because that's definitely not what a trumpet should sound like.

Once, in a fit of insanity, I tried listening to Neph by Trombone Shorty with the K550 just to make sure I was hearing things correctly. Poor choice.

One thing, I think, the drivers of k550 need some exercise before it can correctly produce the full spectrum of frequency it is capable to produce. It is understandable that it is a deterrent to someone who pay a dear sum of of money and don't get the expected sound right away. Especially for people who are looking for an upgrade to their existing seasoned headphone.

 

As a result, bad reviews and unsatisfied customers which then turn away more would be customers ....
