I think you'll get more useful information from that pocket-lint.com website than from Headfonia

Nomax, have you listened to them ? Did you like them more than Sennheiser HD800 and Beyerdynamic T1 ?
He acknowledges the HD 800's superior soundstage though, afair only in size though.
Huh...36ohm and 1.5 tesla, really similar to TH900
A bit doubtfully, powering is probably more like k701 & D7000. AKG usually quite power hungry.
Yeah~ but the Tiesto line was the easiest to power to my experience. I can drive it straight out of my iPod/iPhone but the K550... not sure why but my iPod can't even drive it to decent volume
Not just volume but to make it really sing with power & great bass.
The iphone/ ipod probably doesn't has enough power to drive the K550 hence not even enough to deliver volume, let's alone power & strong bass... Need a decent amp.
...and I have no idea why they release the AKG K551 with built in mic and control for iDevice... or is it easier to drive?
Maybe problem isn't with iDevice but with hearing of listener?
Anyway, if K812 would be more musical than HD800 I am starting feeling sorry for my wallet.
