Hi, I have recently bought a pair of AKG K401's off ebay for £45 (on their way) and was reading up about them and was wondering if sonically they are lacking much behind the K501's which people state have great highs, mids and soundstage but lack bass. I also read that the K401's have a lot more bass than the K501's but lack in the mid range and highs but retain a wide soundstage; is this true? if so how far behind the K501's are they? would the K401's be considered a better all rounder due to its having more bass making it better for rock?
