    Will I like the AKG K142HD's?

    I'm not one to buy super expensive cans - I have modded Sennheiser HD428's, Klipsch Image S4's and the terrible Corsair HS1A's. However, I do like decent sound quality. I love my HD428's, but I wanted to try something new. I ordered the AKG K142's on sale for $99CAD. I already have a decent...

    Replacement pads for AKG 142HD?

    I like the sound of 142HD, but it is quite uncomfortable.   Pad is pretty thin, and firm...   Are there any leather or velour pads (big ones are fine too) that will fit on 142HD?   Thanks in advance!

    AKG K141 Studio Vs. AKG K142 HD? Any Legit differences?

    Just lookin for some basic info. clearly the 141 costs less and since AKGs are famous for getting better with age, buying a used pair of 141s will run about 80 or below. though, if there is a difference in the 142hd other than fuzzy cups and Mila Kunis ranked sex appeal, id like to have that...

    Suggestions for replacing an AKG K142HD.

    The right driver in my AKG K142HD seems to have died. So I'm making this an opportunity for a change.   I dabble in some 'one-man-and-his-guitar' living-room songwriting and I do a little bit of sound editing and generic audio listening from DVD/Gaming. Thus, my source is invariably some sort...

    AKG K142 HD driver size?

    I went from AKG K172 to K142.  I'm feeling the sound in the K142 (semi-open) is a much better than the K172 (closed). Is it because it's semi-open.  I'm wondering if the driver size in the K142 is larger than what's in the K172. I haven't taken it apart yet to compare but does anyone here know...
