    Review by 'jerryg' on item 'AKG Acoustics K-240 Semi Open Studio Headphones'

    Warm sound, good mid, great price   Easy to drive compare with other studio headphone, there is shouldn't be too much complaint consider this headphone now only retail about $70 and sound really great.

    I choose 580 over 595, the 580s are more refined and detailed, compare to 595 with right amp. Plus better sound stage too

    595's or 600's, the definitive answer

    IMHO HD580 and HD600 are for serious HI-Fi listening, where as 595 is good for those casual listening

    HD580 or HD595? Or Possibly HD600

    Quote: Originally Posted by hwc Honestly, either the HD580 or HD595 would be great. They are essentially the same headphone, with the HD595 just being the new model replacing the old model in the line. The major difference is simply the styling/packaging of the headphone and the change...

    hd 555, 580, or 595

    if you consider getting better source or amp in the near future, get the 580! otherwise go for 555/595, they won't drag you further into setup upgrade maddness.

    Has anyone downgraded from HD595 to HD555?

    Quote: Originally Posted by facelvega I've also heard both, and can concur that the 555 sounds good, but the 595 sounds better. All I can remember is the sense that the 595 had a greater precision and clarity. However, I'm also one of the people who find all the 5x5 models weak in...

    AKG K501 love...

    i find the female vocal are extremely addictive in K501!
  15. jerryg

    Compare the MS-1 and AKG 501

    K501 basically kills MS-1 in most of the aspects! but it require a good amp to do so!

    Where do you place your favorite bass?

    i have both K501 and HD580 and I prefer K501's tight base

    From SR60 to RS1 , what i can get ?

    It really depends on the source and the amp.

    Short Noob Shootout: HD497, SR-60, DT231 and HD201 in classicals

    my preference: 1) DT231 3) HD497(the prices are there, the overall quality should be higher than 201) 2) HD201 4) SR-60(SR-60 is kinda fake all the way from high to low, not ideal for classical)

    Upgrade from K271?

    try HD650 or DT880
  21. jerryg

    HD-600 vs HD-595

    if you have a good amp, the HD600 will kick 595's ass in all aspects!!!!

    SR 80's vs. AKG 240S? vs. Hd280's? vs.? (aka, help me, i'm confused)

    The K240s really require a decent amp to drive, but yeah it's overall sound is much better!
