This way we can keep the Senn bashing in here and the AKG bashing in the other.

As before, I'll start the bashing:

The Senns are veiled and boomy.

To me the 580s sounded artificial. it sounded like they took the song and smoothed it out making it boring to the point that i could just fall asleep listening to hard rock.

ok, why the hell do we need another pointless thread like this, that will no doubt end in pointless flaming and pointlessly long boring posts with no point at all?

I mean...been there, done that, didn't like it.

Because I wanted to keep it all out of my 501 cable mod thread.

I love my 600s, don't get me wrong.

I started a thread on a cable mod for the 501s and it turned into a Senn bashing session that I wanted out of my thread so I started this one.

If you don't want to partake, than don't post or even read it for that matter.

I'm not trying to start trouble, I'm trying to move trouble *out* of another thread where it doesn't belong.

I don't think people will segregate their opinions when they encounter something they feel strongly about.

"You wanna complain? Go out back and yell at the dumpster."

I'll help them along and start another thread for them to rant in.

BTW, I started another thread for AKG bashing/defense.

The original thread was called something like "AKG 501s Bass Roll-off re-re-re-revisited" and was basically meant as a way to show folks who think the 501s are rolled-off that perhaps it's maybe a cable problem and not a design problem with the drivers.

Someone took that out of context and started yelling that they are natural and the Senns are boomy. I yelled back to take it to another thread and, if they are happy with the 501s, don't mod them! I'm certianly not about to tell someone to do something they don't want or feel the need to do.

Now, why do I start by saying the Senns are veiled and boomy? Because, relativly speaking, they are. Don't believe me? Listen to the 501s for a few hours and switch over the Senns. In *contrast* they will appear boomy and veiled (if you hear like I do).

Now, listen to the Senns for a while and switch over to the 501s. They will now sound shrill and harsh (again, assuming you hear like I do).

Of course, your ears may tell you something different and that's fine by me! I'm not about to tell someone they can't hear what they can.

I've done the test above and I can clearly see where both sides of this issue come from.

That said, I prefer the Senns over the 501s but that's just me. I also think that something properly balanced to my ears lies somewhere between the two. But, again, that's just me and you may feel differently.

I'm also more likely to mod the $100 pair of AKGs over the $300 Senns (patrly because the AKGs are easier to dismantle). Plus, others have posted ways to make the Senns less veiled but I have yet to hear of anyone making the AKGs more bass-heavy (without an EQ being involved).
