Agreed. Always overshadowed by their younger brother. And yet, I bet if the peeps that don't like the HD650 had bought the 600 instead, they'd be happier :)

Yeah, its overshadowed by the HD650, and HD598.  The HD600 and HD650 are however very ugly:tongue:, so I can see how people are turned away from them.

I think the HD 600 look pretty decent. Make people look like they know what they're doing.

Underrated I tell you, I've heard both of them, and it's a difference of day and night.

Because they are the most uncomfortable set of headphones in the entire known universe. Sure, their sound is ok, not that great though.

Which AKGs are you referring to? Are you referring to the K7xx series that has the bumps on the headband? I always found AKGs to be among the most comfortable headphones for me even the one with the bumps and I think some of their headphones sound great, others are just okay.

I will agree with you if you mean the AKG K701/2 with the bump on the headband otherwise, their products line are very comfortable to me smily_headphones1.gif

What is it with you people? What bump in the headband? I'm wearing right now probably the heaviest headphones and I'm doing fine. In fact, last time I went to get some tea was about 3 hours ago, so...

 

I'm talking about the AKG K240 and K271 mk2. I can't call these over-ear headphones because they don't cover my ears, and they put pressure on my ears, after an hour, of them on when I take them off.... well "Ouch" is what I say, to say the least :)

The most over rated headphones of all time are clearly Beats by Dre. Many people here on Headfi dislike them for the shortcomings they present, but in general, they are THE headphone to top.

It's really hard to pick a most underrated headphone...I think the Audeo line of IEM's are really nice but don't get much attention.

Bose is even worse than Beats since most people think they make the best headphones.  Well, at least here in the US...because in Europe I saw Sennheisers everywhere...I only noticed one or two Beats in a sea of Sennheiser (and a couple of other respectable brands).

Not sure if you guys ever tried or own or heard of the Soul By Ludacris LS300... Worse of the worse to me! Everything is thrown behind the boomy bass.

Beats are not even jewelry. just a plastic piece of sh*t! There are just too many people with really bad taste around to wear them.
