great seller. Bought from them many times.
no no no.....I like these 545's. I think I am hearing bright because I used bright recordings? A Dionne Warwick comp sounded just fine. And I had adjusted myself to the NAD HP50 and the Focal Spirit Pro, and prior to that was using the T51p.
Y'know what? I find the 545 sounds like a closed Grado SR80, but in a good way....with stronger bottom end. I'll get some more time in tonight.
RazonDog was great with the K545. They shipped like within an hour after my order was placed...and they arrived in two days.
I just tried them on the iFi iCAN and they are almost ideally balanced..... now brightness = clarity and openness. Fit is OK as long as you stay still and position the earcups as high up as possible.
I had a listen to those phones' about a month ago in a store where they just got them in. First initial impressions are that they were really comfy, but didn't isolate as much as I would've liked. Furthermore, the sound was slightly tinny, and screechy, although funny enough many akg phones' were like that for me at the start but as my ears go used to them i started to really love the sound. So im thinking it must be the same with these ones.
Overall though, they didn't impress me that much to pull the trigger, so I'm just gonna finish off by saying that they are a fairly nice headphone, but you'd be better off going with something else at this point if youre looking for something portable.
How well would these take to abuse? I'm thinking these match up pretty close to my preferences, but I'm not exactly gentle with my portables. I'd probably neglect to put them in a case before shoving them into my backpack.
Tinny and screechy seem completely off from my impressions of these headphones. I don't get a hint of that even. They don't isolate quite as well as some that have more clamp, but if they had more clamp I wouldn't find them as comfortable as I do!
AKG needs to smarten up. If you are going to have a light clamping pressure like the Sony 1R, you need soft pads like the 1R.
Darn, I'm guessing these aren't for me. Thanks!
