    AKG K501: burn-in?

    Well, I have had my K501s for about a month now. I love mine as well, a huge improvement over my Grado SR-80s. As for burn-in, I didn't notice anything. When I got mine, I listened to them right away, but I also let them run pretty loud for 20 hours or so when I was gone for the day. So I...

    recommendation

    I have the AKG K501 and a Sony portable cd player. The Discman does not have the juice to drive the 501s to decent levels. It works only if you listen at night in near total silence. Now coming out of my tube preamp, things are different. I have plenty of power for the 501s that way. Both the...

    Comparing the Grado RA-1, Headroom Little, Rega Ear, etc...

    FCJ, Did you use the Headroom processor with your HD 600? Was the Little bright after you added the More Power upgrade? I do like the size of the Little, but if it is bright, I may not go for that. I would rather error on the warm side of things rather than bright, because 1) the HD 600 is...
