Excerpt: I was trying to decide what headphones to get for months and finally decided on this pair. They are much better than I even imagined. I am a newbie at mixing, but as far as I can tell, these seem to give an acurate sound. The velvet pads are really soft and comfortable. If you are looking for on ear headphones, these are excellent and economical. The detatchable cable is also a plus, since that is what I ruined first on my last pair of headphones.
Excerpt: Clear sound. I was anticipating that much when i was ordering this. Sound quality is great. You are getting this if you want clear sound with highs and mids and bass that is clear and strong while not being thumping (ie not covering the rest and sounding muddy). If someone wants a heavy thumping bass that can harm ears then no. This one is about clarity and "unpolluted" sound. And because its 55 ohms it can be used on a PC or on a portable mp3 player with no issues.
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. :). This is also my first headphone purchase beyond $60, so my thoughts about this headphone might not be as accurate compared to those with more experience.
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 am one of those annoying people who listen to music constantly. Be it around the house or on my commute to work. I go through headphones more than I do shoes! So I am very impressed that these headphones have lasted so long. It has been a year, and still going strong. They are comfortable, the sound quality is good (not the best, but very good) and they look quite cool too. I would recommend these to people who are sick of their headphones always breaking, like I was!
Summary: Mijn eerste 'dure' hoofdtelefoon, dus erg veel vergelijkingsmateriaal heb ik niet. Maar dit ding zit lekker, klinkt gewoon uitstekend en ik vind de micro-xlr en twee verschillende kabels een goede vondst die aangeeft dat AKG oog heeft voor detail. Overigens, Conrad: haal die tiepfout eens uit de naam, die I hoort daar niet ("AIKG").
Excerpt: Non soddisfatto della scarsa qualità audio delle casse del mio notebook ho deciso di acquistare un paio di cuffie. Mi sono così imbattutto nelle K 141 Studio della AKG.

Se a vete voglia di comprarvi un paio di cuffie eccellenti ad un prezzo abbordabile, questo è il modello che fa per voi. L'unica cosa di cui ...
