Summary: The K141 is a recent addition to my headphone family. Here I compare it to the other phones I have, the audio-technica M50-S and the Sennheniser HD238.
The K141 comes with leatherette pads, a straight cable, and a gold plug adapter. The box includes velour pads and a coiled cable as options.
Pros: Good sound, spare pads, 2 cables, self-adjusting
Cons: May be a poor fit for small children and large adults
Summary: EDIT (9/23/2011) : After getting my hands on a couple of "Audiophile Reference" albums, I did more critical listening and added more impressions.
(12/9/2011) : Finalizing review after gathering 200+ hours of use.
Hi guys, this is my first review, so forgive any mistakes. :).
Pros: Easy to drive, smaller for portability, great finish, great sound for the price, treble and midrange.
Cons: Long-term comfort, shallow pads, K 240 mk. II is better in everything besides portability, lacks bass punch
Summary: I'll keep this very short. They are very smooth sounding. Treble toned down so not so good for rock but have a magic about them that makes them better than mark 2. I use them with a '89/'90 Marantz PM50 integrated. Very powerful amp with a great headphone out.
Excerpt: Klanglich überzeugt der halboffene Kopfhörer mit einem recht ausgewogenen Frequenzgang. Zudem überraschte uns der AKG mit ungewöhnlich satten Bässen und einer brauchbaren Mittenauflösung. Allerdings mussten wir mitunter in einigen Passagen feststellen, dass die Höhen dagegen etwas matt wirken.
