Summary: These headphones may not be for everyone but if you're looking for a sleek package that is easily portable, not too bulky, and packs a decent sound for a great price, these AKGs get the job done. Do they produce the same sound as comparable open air headphones around the same price range or slightly higher?....
Pros: Solid mids and highs, great portability, tangle free cord, no sound leakage
Cons: Sound not as good as open air cans, feel a bit tight after a few hours of wear
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.
I bought the QLS and the AKG's simultaneously, so I'm not entirely sure which exactly the qualities emanate from, but I'll hazard a guess.
First things first.
Summary: Quality headphones I had been looking for at a good price. They get better and better the more you use them. I use them with a Galaxy S3 and volume controls does not work when using the Phone lead however pause skip forward and skip back work fine. Calls are clear when using that function. Would have gave 5 stars if all controls worked from the phone lead but that seems to be reserved for Apple products.
Summary: I tried beats and found them to have too much base it overpowered the rest of the sound. So I bought some Fanny Wangs 1000 which were great sounding, but felt a bit uncomfortable because of their rigidity, Also after a few months the left can stopped working and I found it was a faulty socket. E mailed Fanny Wang who were not going to replace or repair as I could not find receipt, Costco refunded no problems.
Summary: Bought these for just over £50 at Superfi, and at that price they are very good. I got them to supplement a pair of B&W P3s that I didn't want to use when gardening or washing the car but use these AKGs instead. Like all small foldable headphones, they are targeted at being used on the go, with some boosting of lower frequencies to counteract background noise, and rolled off high frequencies to mask compression / DAC / amplifier distortions.
Summary: Really like these. As with some of the other reviewers, I am no audiophile, but, based on other headsets that I have owned and tried, I believe these to produce a very nice full sound with good bass, mids and highs. I have been using them on a daily basis for the last month or so as I travel to work and have been very pleased with the sound quality. They do fold easily and come with a nice case to keep them protected whilst travelling.
Summary: Kopfhörer haben einen sehr guten Klang, einzig das Voluminöse fehlt etwas. Bass ist vorhanden drängt sich aber nie in den Vordergrund. Kopfhörer eignet sich durch das Zusammenklappen und durch die Transportbox sehr gut für Reisen. Bin begeistert.
