"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.
Summary: Comfortable and accurate. I've tracked all day with these, and been the better off for it. I have yet to find anything I don't like about these headphones. My other pair of older K240M's seldom get used anymore, though due to the semi-open back of those, they are still more useful for general...
Summary: Great middle of the road monitoring for a decent price. They are comfortable for long sessions and the mute feature is nice. Frequency response isn't quite as flat as I'd like as there seem to be some resonances in the mid range.
Summary: Bought as a replacement for Koss Porta Pro for everyday use. They are not built as a tank is, but I took mine on a 4 months hitchhiking journey on South America. They were thrown inside a my bag all the way, endured all the trip providing quality music, and still to this day they are almost intact,...
Summary: I wouldn't say these are particularly neutral, as after an admittedly short listen (they're a gift), there seems to be a significant bias to midrange. Cranking the bass and treble controls on my amp made them sound a lot flatter, and then they had a quite pleasant sound.
Summary: This is a really great set of headphones I've been using for the past year and a half, these are my impressions: Looks: M'eh, they ain't winning no beauty pageants. They have a utilitarian look which is just fine with me, they're built to last, not to impress idiots on the bus.
Excerpt: I use it for 7 months I tried a dozen headphones closed the store where I buy, but the choice was not difficult. The sound at the same quality as on a headphone that costs a hundred euros more. I think this headphone for the price is very low, which is not a disadvantage!
Summary: I bought a pair AKG cans about 25 years ago, and my last memory of them is of a faint wisp of black smoke as the last of the brittle plastic that they were made of sublimated to what I believe is a better plane of existence*, leaving me with but a bundle of duct tape no longer holding those few...
