Identification of old headphones

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I found an old pair of headphones at home and they don't seem to have any kind of brand or model indication on them.

Measured them as being 600 Ohm

 

If anybody could identify these for me, that would be really nice :)

They look like AKG headphones. I have no idea which model though. 

 

How do they sound?

AKG was also my first thought but I've never seen that small logo. Open headphones, very heavy but nice headband.

 

I don't have a lot of experience but they sound pretty good. Pretty pronounced bass for headphones, more pronounced as my DT770's.

Definitely depth in the music but maybe bit lacking in detail.

Tested them with a few hip hop tracks, a few classical piano pieces and some rock n roll. I'd say they sounded best while listening to Queen.

Just found out what they are: Philips N6330. It's basically a re-branded AKG K240 sextett with a different construction (some people claim the soundstage is not quite the same as the sextett's). Thanks for help anyway.

AKG K240sextets are amongst my favorite (formerly) affordable headphones.
