And it's only $200....
But I think I found my winner.... I only wonder how they would fit on my head.
Comparing their stats to the Akgusa....
The highest range of sensitivity that any of the Akgusa have is to 94 dB/mW, where as the sony outputs to 107 db/mW
The power is off the charts on the sony (3000 mW) as compared to the 200mW of the Akgusa and the frequency range of the Akgusa (15-25,000Hz) just isn't as impressive as the super low range capability on the sony (down to 5 Hz).
Now, do I know if that really makes *that* much of a difference?
(and since I've no idea of a price range on the Akgusa... I don't know if they're a total rip off or just not made for the same sort of sound...)
I didn't look very far into the Sennheiser 'phones becuase they struck me as being very very similar to the Akgusa and I'm of the mind (and I could be horribly wrong here) that they're just geared toward different things.
