AKG K 601 Reference Open Back Headphones Hand Assembled
AKG K 601 Reference Open Back Headphones Hand Assembled is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Introduction to High-End HeadphonesAlong with my Sennheiser HD595's and my Audio Technica ATH-AD700's, the AKG K601's are in the top tier of my headphone collection. My K601's are used exclusively for critical listening with a dedicated headphone amplifier. Like any high end headphone with a wide frequency range, you're going to get crystalline clarity with enough detail to hear a mouse belch in an auditoreum and the K601's are no different. Once broken in (approx. 100 hrs), the bass gained some weight and the overall sound relaxed. A true strength of the K601's is that all of that detail and clarity sounds so effortless. However, these are not as sensitive as the Senn's or AT's which can be used with portable audio players and still sound great. Plug the K601's into your iPod and the sound is thin and weak. These headphones require a low ohm output and a lot of power. Connect them to the output on a vintage integrated amp or a strong dedicated headphone amp and you'll hear what these cans can really do. Any amp that can seize those varimotion drivers and push them with authority will unlock musical details you never knew existed. Then just sit back in your easy chair with your beverage of choice and prepare to be amazed. If your forte' is exclusive to compressed audio on portable players, try the Audio Technica ATH-M40fs or the Sennheiser HD series. They tend to be more forgiving with weak audio sources as well as more sensitive for low power output. The AKG's are not forgiving and will reveal the flaws in your front end with glaring accuracy. I would think however that if you're willing to spend $250.00 on a pair of headphones, then any equipment required to make them sound their best wouldn't be too far out of your reach. Highly recommended for budding audiophiles, as well as any old-timers unable to afford the Sennheiser HD800's. You won't be disappointed, just remember to allow for break-in, and prepare to splurge just a bit on your front end source.
