    Why are so many K701, 702 for sale?

    ^ Most studios use monitors to mix and master, and closed phones for recording. Marketing aside, the K702 isn't a "pro" headphone anymore than the Macbook Pro is a "pro" laptop.

    Amp for Audio Technica ATH-AD500's?

    Amp for Audio Technica ATH-AD500's?

    I've also read both phones are virtually alike. Would be fun to do a blind listen between the AD500, 700, and 900. I wouldn't be surprised if the differences could easily be attributed to preference.

    What is the affordable 'best' of each manufacturer.

    I don't understand this pathological drive to describe the K501 as a $100 headphone and various Stax rigs as $300 gear; they aren't. It's like telling someone they can find savings accounts with 15% APR if they look around for a good deal. Such options are few and far between for most people...

    how close sennheiser PX100 to HD595?

    The HD595 is an overpriced clone of the HD555. Get the HD555 and call it a day.

    Well, I've had them for a few days now, and am very happy with them. They work well for listening while riding, which was why I'd bought them. I ordered two pairs. Incidentally, Amazon is no longer directly selling them, as of this evening. The price is currently $85. For that price, you could...

    Because they just aren't that good.
