    Pros - Soundstage, Imaging, Transparency
    Cons - Require Recabling and Specific Amplification
    Well, I have tried all of the great headphones over the last few years (Stax, Sennheiser, Grado, AKG, Audeze, Beyer Dynamic, etc.) and I have returned to my all-time favorite K1000s with Stefan Audio Arts Equinox cabling - driven by a Macintosh C2200 tube preamplifier and a First Watt F1 amplifier.   What brings me back is the incredible soundstage, the imaging and the transparency of the sound.   I no longer listen to the system - I listen to the music.    What more could I ask.  I am re-listening to my entire music collection with such appreciation for the incredible performances.    I am really happy with the K1000s in this configuration.  Of course I will keep listening to other offerings (it is a hobby after all), but it will take a lot for me to switch from these great "earspeakers".

      You should all carefully read the designers notes in this thread:http://www.head-fi.org/t/57805/history-of-the-akg-k1000
      No special AMP is needed to get the desired sound of the AKG K1000. I use a stock AMP w/o any mods for years now. Also, mine has been identified as 0-series (pre serial and special tested and serviced version, not sold officially) by Mr. Renner, it's clear to me, that i wasn't wrong at all.
      I record and hear excactly what i've recorded. What do i need more ?
      The best for mix checking, i can tell.
