    Bose Around Ear upgrade to Audio Technica ATH-M50

    Your 1st and 3rd bullet point leads me to believe that you will NOT like the M50 at all. If you thought Bose was uncomfortable, the M50 will be terrifying.   M50 also strays quite far from "very clear, realistic sound". I would look into the Shure 440/840 line or the KRK KNS 6400/8400...

    Highly portable headphones

    I personally like the AKG K840L, which is also my profile pic, but they have been discontinued.   Have you looked into Forum>Equipment>Portable headphones yet? they may have better response there

    Any tips on making AKG K518 sound better?

    I did some research before buying the K518's, and found that Sennheiser HD25's velour pads will fit on the 518's, making it slightly more balanced. I haven't tried this myself, but just something to consider. Also try searching AKG K518 mod and you will find some useful posts to mod them...

    Are there headphones that allow in ambient noise? (for office use)

    Quote:   They definitely don't have isolation that I would characterize as "good"... Good would be something that could drown out a nearby chatter, or muffle the sound of a vacuum cleaner in the room. Incidentally, I'm wearing the HTF 600's right now, and I can hear myself type on the...

    AKG K550 vs UE 6000

    I have auditioned both and have a few words to say. Tyll's opinions are simply his opinions; although a respectable one at that, you have your own unique tastes and preferences. To my ears, the UE6000's were good, but slightly muddled. But I prefer slightly brighter headphones.   I would...

    Anybody used Sony's XBR600's?

    I had a brief demo at Fry's Electronics with them.   They are certainly good-looking and portable with incredible isolation. It almost felt as if I was wearing noise-cancelling headphones. They were quite comfortable as well.   I wasn't able to play anything out of the headphones...

    Skullcandy Mixmaster Appreciation Thread

    The HDJ 2000's have a great mid-range, and a great bass texture to my tastes. I do find them a bit neutral for their 'DJ' label, though.

    Skullcandy Mixmaster Appreciation Thread

    I do think these cans have a great sound quality. It sounds much like what a $300 headphones should sound like.   However, in my opinion, the Pioneer HDJ 2000's do much better at a lower price. (~$215 via Amazon / B&H). At $300 (or even near the $200), the Skullcandy Mix Masters lack the...

    AKG K167 "TIESTO" + AKG K550 Measurements and Discussion

    AKG K167 "TIESTO" + AKG K550 Measurements and Discussion

    Quote: Do you think it's possible that they have the same drivers? The graphs are very similar to each other. The variances could be due to structure of the headphones. The K167, being plastic in construction, appears to have more ringing.

    Roll Call for Team AKG

    Refer to my profile picture!   Those are AKG K840KL, a very comfortable wireless headset. It had a harsh sound, but I still loved its wireless capability. I hope that was good enough to be in team AKG
