So, today I got a new box in the mail from a fellow Head-fier. In that box was a pair of K501's which I paid $125 for shipped. To top it off the headphones are absolutely mint with less then 100 hours of use on them. After listening to them for most of the day all I can say is wow. The soundstage is huge and the mids sound out of this world. The highs are a little bright but I expect that to calm down with a little extra burn in time. The bass is really the only flaw so far. While it is ok it is also lacking. I have put in an order for some new K701 pads and will see what that does. Either way I am really happy with the score and will definitely be holding on to these for years to come.
