    The AKG K550 Impressions and Discussion Thread!

    AKG Q701 Review

    New Member Introductions thread

    Hi,   I'm a newbie interested in getting the best audiophile experience I can from my set up. I have the Sennheiser 598 which are fine but I'm wondering what else is out there that would be better at a similar price point.   Most of my headphone listening is via my MacBook via a HRT...
