Sounds Great, but not very loud

  • Excerpt: These are some great sounding Headphones. They are very natural and have nice smooth silky high end. The low end is present, but not over exagerated. The headphones fit on my head well, and don't squeeze. so i don't have a headache after and hour of use. They only problem is they don't get very loud. they require an amp to use in a live sound situation.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Bulky/Heavy, Quiet

Nice Solid Headphones

  • Excerpt: The K271 MKII are a nice set of headphones, but they are not the successor to the K270 that I thought they would be. Single speaker in each can, as opposed to the K270. They are made in China, but the build quality seems good. I use these for recording at home, giving them to musicians to track vocals.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight

Great for composing/tracking

  • Excerpt: I purchased a set of these for my home studio after using them in a variety of settings in the studio where I work. As others have mentioned, the bass response can be a bit deceiving. But I wouldn't recommend mixing with headphones alone anyhow. For composing/writing in the middle of the night or tracking live instruments, these headphones are perfect. (And much cheaper here, I might add).
  • Pros: Comfortable, Dependable, Durable

"Impressive sound and depth for a closed design. Easily powered 'enough' by an iPod. Definately thin on the low end."

  • Excerpt: Im amazed at how well these sound for a closed design. I have the K701 which are great at making the sound seem further away. The K271 does a nice job there. I tested these from a standard PC sound card prior to testing on an amplifier and quality source. I am very impressed with the sound and perceived depth when listening to 3D type sounds. I suggest you look up Virtual Barbershop.

Great headphones

  • Excerpt: Mine are still made in Austria, too bad the new ones are made in China. But nonetheless... These are excellent tracking headphones. Not very useful for casual listening, though they sound great, but not nearly as comfortable for any lengthy listening like an open back can would be.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful

not my favorite headphones but nice

  • Excerpt: the sound is accurate, clear and true to life. the experience is quite honestly boring. Some things play better on these than other. Not for those that enjoy bass reproduction or enhancement in their music. They are very comfortable. Even with eyeglasses. They are light and if the music stops you may forget you have them on. A little costly for made in China. But everything is.

Noisy Environment?

  • Excerpt: Great if you need to cut down on noise in your work environment. If not, I'd choose headphones with smaller that don't cover your ears.

Really Great Headphones

  • Excerpt: I use these to listen to music and play guitar. They sound great, really clean sound representation. Very solid in quality. My single complaint is a very small one; the plastic makes a popping sound when you move around, and because they're closed headphones, its pretty loud. The nice thing is that it stops doing it after they've been on your head for awhile, hopefully it will break in after a few more months. They are very comfy too.
  • Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: This is a fantastic option for mixing sound for videos nd music if you can`t afford great nearfield monitors and great acoustics in your studio. It`s flat response is really impressive.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
