Summary: I'm really disappointed with these earphones. I would struggle to even call them ear Phones due to them being twice as large as your ear canal. They require delicate balancing on the edge of the ear and become quite painful after a while. You can rule out any kind of sport. Terrible fit aside I had high hopes for the sound coming from a top company like Akg . My hopes were soon dashed with a hollow tinny sound with no bass reproduction at all.
Summary: Not too comfortable, does not sound bad but I did not find it to excel in any area. I would never recommend these, especially when the Sennheiser MX170 is so capable for a similar price. AKG can and do better.
Summary: These are an excellent pair of in-ear mp3 phones. The sound has a very velvety, organic texture to it which I like very much. They represent the stereo field very well with a crispness and clarity you will not find easily elsewhere at this price point. If you are a hip-hop head or require booming bass from your phones then look elsewhere (most likely you'll need an on-ear solution), but i have to say i was pleasantly surprised by the thick and chunky low end presence.
Summary: The buds are very comfortable if you have large ears. I mean, really large. They sound good with a bit too much base and distorted treble. However, they are definatelly a worthy purchace for 4 pounds that i got it for.
Forget all the rest these are the best! (on a budget)

Summary: What can I say apart from WOW!!! I usually buy JVC gumy headphones as i thought they were - great value, good sound, comfy and very hard wearing! But these are amazing quality for the price.... unbelievable! Only downside for some people they might feel a little clumsy in the ear (my initial thought but soon I didn't notice them in). And I might add they don't look nowhere near as brown as the picture indicates.
Summary: Der Sound dieser Kopfhörer ist wie von AKG gewohnt: richtig geil, kann man nix gegen sagen. Jedoch sind diese Kopfhörer dermaßen groß, dass sie mir immer aus den Ohren fallen, obwohl ich schon große Ohren habe. Wer also sonst immer mit zu kleinen Kopfhörern kämpft, kann hier bedenkenlos zugreifen (hätten sie mir perfekt gepässt, hätte es auch die volle Sternzahl gegeben).
