  • Summary: The AKG K541 headphones are ideal for my lifestyle. The K451's have fantastic sound quality that hits down to 20Hz. The sound quality is balanced and precise. These headphones are portable and fold down and fit snugly in a travel case.

  • 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: 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

  • 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.
  • Pros: compact, foldable, comfortable, great sound
  • Cons: too bassy!

  • 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
  • Cons: Mediocre at best...

  • Summary: These are quite simply the best sounding headphones I've ever owned. The sound is spacious and roomy without any distortion, even when played loud. The earpieces fit snug round your ears like a warm hug. I cannot recommend these headphones enough.
  • Pros: the build quality , the sound , the comfort
  • Cons: absolutely hee haw

Great product

  • Summary: I bought these to use on my turbo trainer. Obviously they get pretty messy so didn't want to spend a lot. The sound they produce from my mp3 player is fantastic. They are comfortable on the ear and stay in place fairly well even when I'm wet through. Can't fault them especially @ £40

Comfortable, good sound quality and value for money

  • Summary: I'm really happy with them, sound quality could be better (I've been using slightly more expensive in-ear headphones previously so probably unsurprising to feel it's a slight step down), but for the price absolutely great, though I'm no audiophile.
  • Cons: volume keys don't work automatically with android

  • Summary: Having owned a pair of AKG 430's for ages, I need a new pair suitable for travelling especially on flights Having read reviews the K451 became my first choice and a flight to Ireland proved that these were so much better. Highly impressed by the all round performance.
  • Pros: everything

Disappointing!

  • Summary: I ordered these to replace an ageing budget pair of Klipsch in ear earphones, mainly for outdoor use etc. I have other headphones for indoor use. The good:- Well made, neat folding with smart case, high sensitivity so plenty of volume with mobile devices, fairly comfortable and look cool.
