Hahaha, so are you trying to decide if you should get either W60 or W80 for your AK300 Saw your post in W60 thread as well.
I don't have AK300, but read plenty from trusted sources where they mention it being on a warmer, smoother side. Both W60 and W80 should pair up fine, but you will get a more resolving sound with W80 by nature of its sound sig difference. Just keep in mind sound difference also comes with a price difference. But in general, you can't go wrong with either one.
When you say your "other pair", which one are you talking about? You copy'n'pasted the same post in both W60 and W80 threads, so I'm not sure. And if you are OK with your other pair synergy with AK300, why not get the same? Or perhaps you were looking for some improvement over the other pair? If so, what improvement?
Yes I have a shortlist and they both on it but the W80 probably a little out of my range, although I may stretch the budget
The other pair I referred to are some old beyerdynamics. They sound dreadful with the AK300 but they were very cheap
Sitting now with my HE1000 on my head, but they are not really beach wear 😀 And my Ak300 will be mainly for portable use
Thanks for the input
