    Same headphones as far as I can tell, only the 451's have the in-line mic and controls, where as the 450's it is an optional extra.

    To answer my own question.The 451`s got some this morning and they are a lot better sounding than the 450`s.

    I'm genuinely interested - how are they a 'lot better sounding' when they are exactly the same except for the inline mic on the lead?

    They are more open sounding than the 450`s and they look similar but they are not.They are a different colour than the 450`s

    Yes -I knew the colours are different but I was referring to the Technical Specs. From the AKG website it shows that they are exactly the same. I have heard someone else say they they thought they sounded different and I was wondering how that could be possible. Burn time on the demo model could be a possibility? Hence my interest.
