Good, almost excellent value

Lloyd H., Newegg
23 August 2012
  • 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.

Takes time to wear in.

Janis, Amazon

  • 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.

Good sound quality, awful sound isolation

MR AC Jump, Amazon
7 March 2014
  • 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: Cable too short for me, and seriously lacking any bass. There must be better about for £40, sent back for a refund. But they are very comfortable.

Five star value, ideal for serious music listening.

Mr. David H. Church, Amazon
7 September 2013
  • 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.
