I miss my old headphones, HELP!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I used to have my beloved headphones called AKG K840 KL

However, after being let down by the lack of bass in those headphones, I decided to sell them.

Now as I continue to pursue my enthusiasm for headphones, I miss the treble extension and the bright sparkly details in my old AKG cans.

The sound on the AKG K840 KL can be described as a bit harsh but detailed. Vocals were crisp and forward, while the bass extension was significantly lacking. I didn't enjoy the sound characteristics at first, but as I listen to more and more headphones, I miss the detailed presentation of the mid and treble range.

 

Has anyone here listened to the AKG K840's before?

Regardless, are there any recommendations for a portable can of such sound characteristics?

My budget is ~$200, on / over the ear, portable, and closed back is highly preferred.

 

Thank you

I would stress the SRH940's for you, and then the 8400/6400.

 

Very best,

Very best,

The shures are a bit out of the price range, so I'll look into demo'ing the 8400/6400!

thanks
