  • Summary: Made between 1987 and 1995, these headphones are big. Big to wear with a big sound. Overall they are warm, lush, but still keep the details. That detail means so far I have found them a bit source dependent where poor recordings sound poor.
  • Pros: Big, lush, detailed, wide diffuse sound stage
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Probably my favourite out of the AKGs I have.   The sound is what I would call quite neutral and uncoloured without any excessive bass or treble that may sound impressive at first but can become fatiguing after a while.
  • Pros: Honest sound, comfort, undistorted volume levels, fully serviceable
  • Cons: Open drivers can collect dust, too hard to drive for portables

  • Cons: Open drivers collect dust
