Excerpt: This is a wonderful product! At first I disliked it because it felt uncomfortable to the place under my ears, then I got used to it. It has beautiful sound, bad bass, and does well in keeping sound out. It is quite light and comes with two different wires for me to choose, which is really nice.
Excerpt: I have been a fan of AKG products for some time now, and trust me, after you buy these YOU WILL TOO!!! these headphones are great for recording, mixing, or just listening to music and jamming out!
Pros: Clear Sound, Durable, Easy To Use, Good Feeling, Lightweight, Soft
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.
Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
"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.
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.
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.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: Well, this is a upgrade from K271. This time, the audio cut works properly when you take out from your head. The sound response is the same as the old model... a very nice quality for recording vocals without to leak sound to the mic.
Excerpt: I guess my expectations were pretty high when I decided to buy these. They're good headphones with good quality sound. They're also quite comfortable. They didn't really blow me out of the water though in terms of sound quality. Still, they're much better than the Sony headphones I was using.
Excerpt: I haven't owned these long but can report I like them. They are light enough to wear all day and noise cancellation is great (esp if you work in a noisy office). Sound quality is true and the fit is comfortable. You can't ask or much more than that.
