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.
Excerpt: The headphone is fragile because its construction uses a mediocre plastic. I used this headset for a little more than a year of tracking and also as supplementary listening to mix media. The headset is comfortable but had a tendency to overheat a bit my ears and shake my head.
Summary: AKG 271 MKII headphones are excellent value for money not only do they sound neutral but they are very comfortable. They don’t seem to colour the sound at all and come with connections for 3.5mm and 1/4” jacks.

Summary: Really good headphones I will use them for monitoring my mix and when needed I will plug them into my amp for quiet practise, either way these are great headphones. They could cancel noise a bit more but they are very good for the price.
