    Having made comparisons, you will likely really be pleased with the AKGs. If nothing else, you will know that you purchased them with a good idea of their character. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find AKG studio models when I did my listening tests.

    Regarding the ATHs, you're not alone. The shop that had them didn't have the others, so I couldn't cross check them, but I also found them to be unpleasant in an intangible way. If the Sonys are sweet and the Sens neutral, then the ATHs seemed "unsweet".

    All the best with your new cans!

    AKGs always get my vote, good choice. I still use a pair of K240DF Studio cans that I must have bought several years ago and I'm addicted to them. They are flat and true, minimal fatigue, and after a little while, your forget you have them on.

    ..............each system and hear what I needed to under the AKG's, which was my real purpose for purchase. They were also really comfi on a smaller head (we girls don't have the big head's you bloke's have - ok, none of the head size is proportional to intellect jokes thanks). ................your assistance and experience was definitely valuable in light of the limited testing circumstances. Hope this info may help someone else too.
    Oh No!!! I didn't realise you were a female....otherwise I'd only have been pointing out the prettiest ones! (BTW, re your other thread, Mach 5 has an arguably prettier GUI than contact!)

    Seriously though, it was interesting to 'hear' what you choose in the end.

    Regarding head size....it's not a joke, it's the square/cube law!!

    Good luck

    Hilarious Cand!! I'm delighted you could see the humour! I'm afraid I'm from the Python/ satire era!

    Thanks!!
