Will the Solo SRGII manage well driving AKG K701? I understand the K701 is a bit 'tough' to drive etc.

Thanks.

Hi Shane, your understanding is correct - it is tough to drive (but it isn't the power) and I've always found it harsh in the highs and upper mids. The Solo Ultra-Linear DE sounds a lot better with the K701 than does the SRGII (in my opinion).

The 701 are revealing headphones for sure! I also own some lovely Sennheiser HD650. The latter gives a warmer tone.

Is the Solo SRGII more brighter sounding than the Ultra-Linear DE?

I'd say more "solid-state" rather than bright.

Can easily imagine HD650 getting on well with the SRGII.

The HD650 isn't a particularly high fidelity headphone. I would suggest selecting something else if you want to get the most out of the Solo.

List some headphones that partner well with the Solo.
