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: When you consider that these phones may be the most inexpensive set made by AKG you might expect a cheap and inferior product. That is not the case however. These are a good value and highly recommended by me.
Pros: Comfort = Great if less than 3 hours, after that produce some discomfort (I wear glasses). Airy enough to prevent ear moisture. Headband is good. Lightweight phones. Ear cups are large enough.

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.
Summary: The headphones were delivered promptly, however my husband found them to be most disappointing as they 'leak' sound very badly. The whole purpose of buying them was to be able to listen to music in a room whilst other people either watched TV or read without disturbing them.
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...
