I had the 770-250's. Too boomy for my tastes. Hard to drive them too.

I am more referring to the DT880 and T1. The DT770 is also closed so I don't think it is a valid comparison to the Senn models 600 and up.

Hmmm looking at the AKG website it looks like the AKG 501 has been replaced with the 601. I hardly use cans anymore because I'm always in the basement of my own house instead of my parents wink

Bumber I thought you owned a pair.

I love the HD600s the HD650s sounded a little better but at the time not enough to justify the price difference. I would love to hear the HD800s but I donít want to tempt myself since there are more functional things to buy right now.

The HD600s are the most comfortable and natural sounding headphones Iíve ever owned. Iím still amazed at their bass. On several occasions Iíve gotten up and walked away from my seat only to have the cord pull them off my head because I forgot I was wearing them, even after multi-hour gaming sessions. No damage yet. wink

Late night gaming sessions with headphones is indeed a great experience especially when the headphones are comfortable and can present a realistic soundstage that can bring out all different kinds of little nuances.

I own Sennheiser HD570s. I have put a LOT of hours on them. I need to get the velure redone.

Just got a pair of those KSC75s. I wanted something cheap (got the for about $13 from Amazon), because of my hatred for headphones, I figured I'd just be giving them to someone else. But I was wanting something to use with my phone if I want some portable music. I have to say, I'm impressed. They present the illusion of plenty of bass, but it's not overpowering, with the treble being sharp and clear. After having them on for a few minutes, I almost can't feel them anymore (that's saying something for a person who can't wear lace-up shoes because they present different levels of pressure on the tops of my feet). Still don't like the inside-my-head imaging, but without Dolby Headphone that's always going to happen when I mount the speakers to my ears.

Glad that you like them ClubNeon. Its hard not to like them since they are so cheap. If you ever want an MP3 player to match up with those in the future I would suggest the Sansa Clip+ 2Gb for $39.99. If you already have a MicroSDHC card full of FLAC/MP3 etc files, just insert into slot on the player and enjoy.

I purchased the Clip+ 4gb in black about a month ago for a secondary MP3 player and I am still in shock at the level performance, ease of use and level of features it has for the price. Greatest bargain in the MP3 player market today. It is extremely tiny as well. cool

If I were interested in a portable music player, I'd definitely get a Sansa (all the flash media I own is SanDisk). But for now I'm happy enough with my Android powered Backflip phone streaming music from Rhapsody.
