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. Sound = Great when plugged into PC front headphone jack, strong bass and crisp highs, plenty of volume. ...
Cons: Took a few hours of loud music to "break them in", after which the response, clarity and volume became excellent.
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.
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: 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...
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.
