    Need a pair of gaming/music headphones, can't decide

    Last year I bought a pair of DT700 pros (80ohms) and I do really enjoy them. I am looking at getting another pair but I can't decide between the HD 598s or the AKG K601. I will be using them for xbox gameplay and music on my computer/phone. I don't have an amp right now just a DAC for my pc. I...

    Headphone Results With The Pono (or other DAPs)

    I thought I'd start a new thread so we can gather results from all the Headphones we've tried with the Pono  (good or bad) and any fixes that took them from bad to great.   The other day I got the 650's and gave them a spin on my Marantz CD Player connected to my Little Dot MKIII tube Amp. I...

    AKG Earpad direction?

    I read a user that asked correct orientation for K701 earpads apparently wider part goes back.   But I'm confused because my K601 Earpads look symmetrical, Is there something I'm missing or are the K601 earpads symmetrical while K701 earpads have a wider part?   FWIW my earpads are...

    Question for AKG Fans.

    I've been a AKG fan for some time. While Sennheisers sound coloured to me AKG sound more natural.   So I want to ask others here who must hear things similar to me.   About a year ago I bought the K601's and love them. I've been using the 240's for many years before. However I just...

    In the course of work on a thread about talents of various headhones to play metal (http://www.head-fi.org/t/715478/headphones-for-metal-music-ultimate-solution) I consider "Detail level" and "Speed" among key criterias for cans / metal subgenre gestalt response. I tried to combine formal...

    AKG-601 & 240 w/ schiit magni

    hoping someone with experience with either of these headphones paired with the magni can chime in.   my pc setup is as follows: LiTe DAC-AH (connected via toslink) and the schiit magni. when listening to the 601's it's painfully bright to the point my ears want to bleed. bass is non-existent. ...

    Some more frequency-response graphs

    I will add a few more frequency-response graphs published some time ago in the German magazine «Stereoplay» (1/07). As expressed in several post, they match my own sonic impressions better than the HeadRoom graphs (which show a uniform «distortion» throughout the product palette)...

    Which AKG to have to complement a hypothetical portfolio of headphones?

    Recently I have become more and more interested in the AKG lines. One thing that bugs me is that many of their products are very close to each other, K501, K601, K701, Q701, K702, K202 anni and you name it. If budget is not an issue the K812 is clear choice. I have about $200-300 for the AKG and...

    K601 vs DT880

    Hi, I'm new to the forums and I'd like some help here in my new pair of headphones, I live in Brazil and here good heaphones are pretty overpriced, in reality I've never seen other Sennheisers, AKGs and Beyerdynamics. My father bought me my real pair of headphones, my HD 201, and from there I...

    Best Headphones for Jazz

    Recently gotten back into head-fi and am building a setup around my iMac. I'm looking for a set of cans that do Jazz very well - since I listen to Jazz almost exclusively. I will be getting a DAC and amp soon, once I've learnt more about them but until then I'll be running the cans out...

    EQ your Ms-1i into K601/612

    Based on the graphs found on the web I tried to EQ my ms-1i to sound at least close to what k601/k612 should sound like. Basically I was wondering how much difference could there be.   I used Electri-q equalizer.   Points: 1. Peak at 20 Hz + 3.7 dB BW 1.3 2. peak at 100 Hz -2.6 dB BW 1.5...

    Creek OBH-21 lower volume through amplifier tape output

    Dear all,   I have a Creek OBH-21 which is usually fed by the tape output of my LFD main amplifier, and sometimes directly from a cd player. The problem I have is that the former option gives me much more limited volume output and dynamics than the latter. Unfortunately, I am unable to find...

    AKG K530

    Hello I'm interested in these headphones, although I'm unable to rank them. Are they supposed to be in between the K501 and the K601? Somehow I doubt it. Even if they were just a touch up of the K301 Xtra, they may be worth a look...

    The k702 is better with k601 pads. (Picd Added)

    Ever since i bought my k702 years ago, I was never able to fully become immersed in the music because of the way these headphones presented the midrange. It's far too forward in its stock form in my opinion. Bass is also tricky. It seems like only the deepest notes are heard, with a giant hole...

    AKG k601 earpads for my k501s.

    I recently purchased a pair of k501 headphones.  According to other owners, replaceing the stock earpads with ones from the k601 model changes the sound a bit.  I'm curious and want to try it for myself.  Message me if you have a pair you'd be willing to part with and we can discuss price.

    How similar do the K601 and Q701 sound?

    I love the sound of the Q701 but I can't stand the bumps on the headband, so I was thinking of getting the K601, but I'm worried that it won't have the sound I love the Q701 for. Specifically, when compared with the HD600/HD650, the Q701 sounds very clear and crisp and open. Will the K601 have...

    AKG K701 vs. K601 vs. K530 (some impressions)

    Introductory stuff ... Since I have the pleasure of welcoming all these headphones to my home for several days and I know how needy one feels for information when trying to decide for a pair-o-cans, I want to share some impressions with you. Sure, much has been said about K701 vs. K601, but I...

    AKG K601 - Lightly Used. $175 shipped (CONUS only please)

    These cans have been lightly used in a smoke free home. They look like new and I will ship in the original box. The gold plated 1/8" to 1/4" adapter is flaky at best. It does look nice though so I'll leave it in the box.  (I will ship with another adapter I picked up from Radio Shack.)   I...
