    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

    You probably couldn't tell the difference after changing the internal wire (unless it is placebo). So I strongly do not suggest to change them unless it breaks again and again...

    AKG K340 Electrostatic Phones

    Very nice that you have that tube amp option in your country. I do not recommend to remove the grills or doing any mods apart from chanhing the earpads and cable -in the first place. If you didn't like what you hear you can make further mods. If you replace the earpads with the Brainwavz hybrid...

    AKG K340 Electrostatic Phones

    I am using Darkvoice TH336SE to power them. Synergy is very good.

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Sorry for late reply. With velour K240 Sextett sounds more open, slightly more holographic, bass is reduced a little bit compared to pleather but it is more balanced and overall HP sounds more linear compared to pleather. Pleather improves the bass and also high region were sharper as far as I...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    Very nice find for 40 USD! EDIT: I have attached oval Brainvawz VELOUR angled memoryfoam ear-pads. They become round once they attached. Use some air dryer heat to soften them before attachment (if needed).

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    You can feel its grainy because of the flattened stock pleather earpads. When I first listened to the them I feel similarly... (mine are MP version by the way). I immediately tried a huge collection of earpads and I got best results with Brainwavz angled memoryfoam velour earpads. Now Sextett is...

    AKG K240 Sextett--Grado'd AKG?

    I have tested nearly whole Brainwavz line erapads when (and after) I write a review for Brainwavz and I get best results with their Velour Angled Memoryfoam Earpads for my MP Sextett (please note not LP). Hope this info helps... (----On this LINK you will see some of their earpads with a review...

    LG V20 Sound Quality

    20 Ohm... Very low ohmage but 96db sensitivity... Not very sensitive... I guess V20 can power it without trouble. Amplifier sections on LG V10/20/30 are very very powerful.

    How would you describe bass quantity and quality on K812? Some (actually few) reviewers tell that the high region is killing it (sharp). BTW I love the design of K812. @KyungMin what's your ranking?

    Welcome to the team @Miori ! I see a nice and clean collection there. I think you have both bass light and bass heavy versions of K340? Am I correct? A K400 sitting besides a K501, mmm very nice... I have no idea about those vintage HD540's sitting on the right upper corner. How do you rank...

    Roll Call for Team AKG

    Welcome to the team @KyungMin ! I see very nice collection there. Would like to read some comparisons between K7XX and HD58X / HD6XX. Since I am curious about K240DF and knew that it's a detailed sounding headphone (on the high and mid-high range) would love to read something about them more...

    The AKG K7XX Massdrop First Edition Thread

    I never got used to HD58X sound. I couldn't feel the emotion of the sound with them. I sold both pairs (used and NIB headphones). Still keeping K7XX though. Anyone having any problems with K7XX letters on earcups? Mine faded away after 1 year of use (which can be seen on my Vintage AKG review...
