How do the AKG 701/702 compare to the DT990s?
I've been thinking about a pair, but can't seem to find too many direct comparisons.
Plus Schiit keeps saying their amps are best paired with AKGs, which makes me very curious (and tempted) to test em out

So again, are the M50's much better than the 1001's?

From someone who has owned them, how durable are they? They look pretty beefy, so I can't imagine they'd break easily, but I want to be sure.
I've never used the 1001's, but the M50's are built very well. Nice and sturdy. These aren't the flimsy type of headphones you're afraid to use. I wouldn't be afraid to fold them up and stick them in my backpack on top of my books (I have a few times). I've owned mine for over a year and haven't had any significant problems.

Completely different sound signatures (DT990 v-shaped vs. AKG's mid centric).

For travelers if you're traveling and bringing things back in, if you're out of the country for more than 2 days you have a 700 cdn limit.

Don't ever pay for packages over ebay if you just tell the shipper how to declare it. Many retailers like Amazon.com and newegg.ca will ask you to pay couple of cents or dollars as customs that will negate a much higher customs fee going cross boarder as well.
Yeah, I knew about the $65 thing..well I thought it was $60, but whatever. I find that a lot of sellers don't want to do that for whatever reason, but I sent out an email to one last night, hopefully he replies.

Thanks for the info.

It's stated as 60cdn, however it can go as high as 90 without fee, from experience. Hence I kinda wiggled it to 65.

Out of curiosity, have you tried any electrostats? I've read good things about them compared to dynamics.
