AKG K 240 MK II →
My Sennheiser HD 280 Pros finally died (after five years of heavy use) and I decided to branch out. The AKGs feel cheaper than the Sennheisers despite costing twice as much, but I think I like the sound of the AKGs better. Surprisingly, the AKGs (at 55 ohms) benefit more from a headphone amp than the Sennheisers (at 64 ohms) did. Is this a closed-vs-open issue, or something else?
