As a rider of NYC subways, I've really been needing a portable set of closed headphones. I can't use IEMs, and although I like my AKG K422's, they're not closed, so too much sound leakage.
After reading positive reviews here, and on other wesites, I went ahead and ordered a set of Beyerdynamic DTX 501p headphones. I should recieve themn tomorrow, and am excited to try them out.
But of course, 2 minutes after I ordered the Beyerdynamics, I discovered the AKG K 450's. Arrghhh. I like the look of the AKGs a lot more, and since I am happy with the K 422's, I'm wondering if I should have gotten the K 450's.
Anyone have experience with these sets? Did I screw up or are th 501p's as good as or better than the K 450's??
In any case, I'll write a review of the BD's after i've had them a few days.
