Thoughts about the AKG K550 vs the newer K454?
One of the reasons i've been going away from wanting the 550's is that 3m long cable, it really puts a downer on the portability aspect of the headphones. Luckily the 454 does have a removable cable, but this seems like one of the only things going for it compared to the 550. For someone who has tested both of these, how do they compare in sound?
On another note, i would be curious for someone to do an earpad mod to beef up the pads or replace them with 550's if they would fit. We could get a slightly better soundstage out of them. I know the 550's were great in this aspect due to their large, deep earpads.
Right now im deciding between the 550's for $165 or the 454 for $200, which would you choose?
