I’ve always wanted to try the K701’s, and the K553, but even though I have a large head my jawline isn’t the biggest, and I generally have trouble getting a good seal/fit with any round pads that aren’t made by Beyerdynamic. The one exception is the current round pads that Razer, of all companies, makes.

I think my familiarity with the V6/7506 might also bias me towards their signature, and allow my brain to shift quickly to them. They were one of the first studio headphones I ever used, and we had pairs lying around the college film editing bays and equipment room I worked in from 2002–2006.

I wouldn’t dispute that they’re quite bright, and they’re one of the only bright headphones I really enjoy. I find them equally enjoyable for critical listening and checking for flaws in audio, and I even think they’re decent for gaming since they bring out ranges that are helpful for locating sound direction.

I’ve never asked before Kevin: what would you say is your favorite current headphone/sound signature?
