Depends on what kind of sound you want. I really liked the TH600, but it's a matter of preference.

Appreciate reply, just trying to find out if any other suggestions and do intend to demo if possible.

Haven't heard AK120 in action so will have to wait and see what is good combination have W4 and DT1350 to start

Tried both TH600 & T5p , preferred T5p also felt more robust and better finish but have chance of AKG K3003 at discounted price

though I can't demo them

I really liked K3003 if you ask me. Very balanced and clear sound.

They seem to be loved or hated ,more due to the price I think but there does seem to be trend for expensive universals with Shure release

and Final Audio iems.

 

Just waiting for stock to arrive with out inline remote.

Personally, I loved the clean and articulate sound. But it is a tiny bit overpriced. Something like $1000 would have made the 3003 a great choice. I also don't like the inline remote.

Agree on price was just due to discount changed my mind from T5p to try AKG's What source did you hear AKG 3003 on

Now have reasonable amount of hi res flac and ripped cd's hence AK120 purchase, very happy with it and usb dac function is

My source was AK100+Leckerton UHA-6S.MKII and GS3(via usb out)+UHA-6S.MKII.

If you can get it for under $1050, I think 3003 are awesome. I also think I will sell my Modi since USB audio on AK100 is satisfactory(though not at AK120 level).
