AKG K7XX or Sennheiser HD 6XX?
There's no question. HD 6XX is miles ahead of the K7XX
AKG7XX's are way easier to drive but the resolution and the quality of the HD6XX destroys 7XX's
Actually both are hard to drive, just in different ways. And both scale impressively with better amplification, even up to flagship amps. I would say the K7XX has better speed and resolution, but HD6XX is the tonality king.
K7XX's really have nothing special going for them besides uninformed user appeal. As reference monitors, they're not exceptional or special and that's their intended purpose. The only exceptional thing about them is their comfort. If they were $129-149 it would be a decent buy but at $199.99 it's almost insulting. Get HD6XXs.
