Conclusion: Airy enough to prevent ear moisture. Headband is good. Lightweight phones. Ear cups are large enough.Strong bass and crisp highs, plenty of volume. Cord is long enough, not too long or short.
Summary: The head strap broke after about a week of daily use, but that doesn't concern me too much. The headphones take about a week or two to wear in, the sound crackles from the start and then the crackling goes away. And the pads are a bit rough from the start and the headphones seem quiet, but that might be because of my motherboards integrated sound card.
Summary: I bought these headphones for use at work. As I didn't want too much sound leaking in or out I looked around for over ear, closed back headphones such as these. Unfortunately it turned out that despite being over ear and closed back the isolation was almost non-existent. So I think these would be great for listening to music in a quiet location, but anywhere else either you're going to be annoying everyone with your music, or not able to hear the music over the...
Summary: I am using these as a cheap studio headphones to check mixes along with a seinheiser hd201 . I don't use this to actually mix - i prefer using a pair of flat response studio monitors - but these headphones are great for listening and composing/midi scores and also setting up the arrangement due to the stereo width that they seem to provide which you usually only find in headphones over a 100 quid. Very nice tight bass end without going too overboard.
Five star value, ideal for serious music listening.

Summary: The Mk2 version is considerably superior to it's predecessor, has a nice flat frequency response with no resonances and no irritating bass boost. The fabric earpieces are sufficiently large for all ears and cause no perspiration. I'd highly recommend these.
Summary: Had these for a year now and they never fail to impress me. First thing is the comfort, in a word incredible. I can wear these for hours without any discomfort or pain and for me that is very important. I have a large head with equally large ears and i've lost count of the good sounding headphones that i've had to stop using because of the discomfort. These are brilliant in that respect.
Summary: Bought these headphones for music production, i knew they wouldn't be the best as they were under £50 however they are still really good, a lot better than any speakers i have or can afford. having listened to headphones such as beats i realised that they isnt masses of difference. with them, you are paying for the name, and £300 or £160 or what ever you pay for them just aint worth it. but if you want them that go get them.
Summary: I am a big fan of AKG, having previously used a pair of K702's, tested K701's and previously owning a pair of Q701's until they were unfortunately stolen. I wanted an entry-level pair for "kicking around" in... Something I could happily use when out & about or doing a little commuting, but something I wouldn't be devastated by if they were to break on me. The packaging was simple but looked good and as first impressions go, I was feeling quite good about my new purchase.
