I did not find the HP50 better for image separation or sound stage but I do think these areas are much more subjective in nature so there will be people who disagree with me on this.
Thanks that's helpful. I've read a few contradictory opinions on the bass but heyho more sub bass is a common theme and that suits me! Very pleased to hear you didn't find the sound stage and separation inferior. I ordered the K545 and they arrive tomorrow,,,,stoked...just hope they aint defective ones..............
Even tho I want these cans are for pure enjoyment I'm still drawn to the pro-audio design/spec of the AKG + they look nicer.
I have used IEM's and studio monitors up until now and have never needed a portable amp but due to the low sensitivity of the 545's I just ordered the Fiio E11 on a bit of a whim with very little research....any thoughts on this would be welcome? My budget was pretty much spent on the cans.
Many cheers for the input.....greatly appreciated!
