Summary: I bought these through an internet auction site for a very reasonable fee, so that will affect my view on these slightly as I've not paid RRP.
I am more than happy with the quality of sound that these put out from my iPhone.
Pros: Price, compact, useful with phone/great remote, great bass
Cons: A little flimsy, perhaps not audiophile quality
Summary: I joined head-fi specificaly to post this review....
First - my credentials as a headphone user (as far as they go). I've been into hi-fi for 3 decades, and consider myself a reasonably discerning and critical listener.
Pros: Nice packaging. The remote control seems to work
Summary: I bought these about 3 weeks ago as a to-go pair with my QLS QA350. I should preface by saying I'm not particularly experienced with audiophile gear. These would be my first considered purchase in the reasonable-quality area after becoming fed up with lousy fidelity from mainstream mp3 crapola.
Summary: Considering the poor review level here I felt I had to post a review:
I spent some time checking reviews of these AKG K451 headphones, and found conflicting comments. What I can do is confirm that What Hifi (who awarded these a best buy in 2014) were right, these are excellent headphones even...
Pros: Compact, solid build, carry case included, cable can be replaced, single sided cable, easy to live with sound, good bass response
Cons: Can become uncomfortable after long periods, lacks a little sparkle
Excerpt: Das Headset kann seine Stärken vor allem an einem Apple-Produkt ausspielen, hier ist der Klang recht ausgewogen. Uns hat vor allem die Harmonie zwischen dem straffen Bass und den glasklaren Höhen gefallen.
Pros: Hoher Tragekomfort, Leicht zu verstauen, Optimal an eigenen Kopf anpassbar, Ausgewogenes Klangbild, Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Kopfhörer verfügt über ein Mikrofon, Fernbedienung integriert, Leichter Kopfhörer, Abnehmbares Kabel
