  • Excerpt: I bought these headphones from b&h a few weeks ago for recording purposes. a lot of reviews of this piece misrepresented these as soundproof headphones, and they are not. Other than that, sound is completely flat, and they are fantastic studio reference headphones. I've tested them with sub frequency bass and it plays it clearly. I've played peircing midi leads with it and it plays without distortion.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Limited Functions, Sound bleeds through

  • Summary: These are great headphones and I'm glad I bought them. My other headphones are HD 600s and they let you hear more of the spectrum than these guys but otherwise I like these much more. These guys are well built. You can throw them across the room without worrying you're going to break them where as a lot more expensive phones would break if you threw them half way across the room. Why does that matter?
  • Pros: Robust, block outside sound well, easy to pack
  • Cons: Tight on the head at first

  • Summary: They're not hard to drive, they isolate the environment well, and they are the best phones I've heard so far.   They are lean on bass until you plug them into a good amp. I tried them with a NuForce Icon HD and they sounded so unbelievably detailed and pleasant with strong bass, clarity through the entire range, spacious sound stage, and clear yet unhard trble. I was blown away at how good these things really are.
  • Pros: vocal reproduction is amazing
  • Cons: uncomfortable after a while

  • Summary: Well, I just moved from a Genius GX Cavimanus (gaming headset) to an AKG K171 MKII recently. I am using it for nearly 3 months. My main use is to listen music on PC, gaming and watch some series.   My thoughts:     The AKG K171 MKII is VERY TIGHT, especially for fat guys (like me) or / and with big head.   It have GREAT Medium, Low and Highs but lacks an punching BASS. So, bassheads, run from this headphone.
  • Pros: Audio fidelity, Lightweight, Isolation
  • Cons: Very tight, lacks Bass, Small for some people ; low volume

  • Excerpt: I use this headset for seven months, in my home studio. It serves both to listen to songs, to recording and mix (late at night in order not to interfere with my family). I can say that this is my first headphone "studio quality". He came to replace a Koss who quickly accused the use I had (which starts tattered foam, cable crachotte). AKG with t...
