Curious. What sounds better than a K550 for sealed headphones
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Anything's possible with smart engineers and lots of funding. Besides, "better" is a very subjective term. The K550's are known for having a more neutral sound signature and a good soundstage for being closed, but that may not be what everyone wants. There are plenty of higher end closed headphones out there, if that's what you're looking for. Some of them are the Beyerdynamic T5p, Audio Technica W3000, Fostex TH900, and Ultrasone Edition 8's.
And cracking issues. But he did say that he was speaking strictly in terms of their sound. A lot of people have found them to have an unnatural sound signature, though, and I suspect he may be in the minority in preferring the 940's over the 550's.
you sure? i never listened to the srh940 myself but i demoed the akg k550 before and it sounds really good for 300 bucks closed headphone...
thanks for the comparison, at one point i thought i was going to get the srh940 also but decided against it.
