Summary: I have my AKGs just over 1 year, purchased based on What Hi Fi reviews, and the right ear stopped working. I purchased direct from Amazon (EU S.a.r.L) to avoid receiving a knock-off and to my knowledge it's the real deal. Low use, well taken care of, just stopped working.
Summary: I bought a pair of these from Richer Sounds yesterday as a replacement for my PX200 II, which served me well over the years with a balanced and honest sound that I enjoyed a lot, however, I fancied a change.
Summary: After reading the negative reviews on these headphones I thought "man, the internet is full of sour grapes". But they were bad enough to make me give these a test before committing to buy. I mean, the views on these are either that they are the best thing ever or that they are absolute garbage.
Compact and well built but surprisingly metallic, small sound

Summary: Had high hopes for these phones. Whilst they're compact and appear to be of good build, and, I believe compatible with iPhone and Skype, etc, the sonic quality is not brilliant (it';s especially poor when listening to streaming media, e.g.
Summary: Despite having a rather enjoyable sound I find myself unable to recommend these because of the cheap of the cable. I've been through two cables in the 5 months I've owned them and a friend also had one cable break as well.
Summary: I should stress before you read this review that I rarely write critical reviews as I am more than pleased with most of the purchases I make through Amazon and, indeed, this article is in no way critical of Amazon who, as usual, have provided a first class delivery service.
Summary: So i had these headphones for about 9 months now and i have a clearer picture. I'm a hip-hop guy and I originally wanted to go for the beats studio but i read some reviews that they were overpriced so i stepped back.
Summary: I got these at Christmas and after less than a month of pretty light and careful use (only used while commuting) the sound in one of the speakers has stopped working. The build is sturdy but the wires are ridiculously thin and delicate.
Ok sound but be careful with the cable on portable devices

Summary: I bought these for use with my iPod as I've never yet found a pair of in-ear headphones that would stay in my ears and the iPod freebies were no exception. I listen mostly to classical but also to pop, rock, latin, folk and easy listening (i.e.
Excerpt: Купил на замену AKG-K28NC (им больше 7 лет, износились все, провода задолбали, а их там много, т.к. шумодавка отдельным блоком). Купил сабж не слушая. Очень разочарован. Звук даже не сравнить, хотя внешне - динамики одинаковые (разбирал).
Pros: Достаточно удобные уши. На давят на голову. Комплект нормальный.
Cons: Очень плохой звук. Отвратительный. Ну, в сравнении, конечно. Но цена им 1 т.р. Низов совсем нет. На верхах - каша какая-то.
