Summary: Coming from Senn PX200, I expected better highs and better bass. I was drawn towards this AKG due to recommendations on this forum.
Well, my experiences are less enthousiatic than those of most others.
Audio quality is 'not bad' at best, but in general there's always a honky bass covering up the rest of the music. A lot of people here praised the bass qualities, but to me, it's not real bass, it's somewhat higher up the frequency scale. It's where it's starting to honk.
Excerpt: I have a few years. It allowed me to wedge my vinyl at parties (small pals). To walk with my music without worrying if drops of water were damaging it, considering the price ... I love: - The price - Its comfort - It is not ugly I do not like: - Its too short cable - The sound...
Excerpt: The other day I tried an Audio-Technica ATH-M50X. Not the same price, for sure, but the day and night in quality and comfort. It joins the AKG on the fact that also has good except in severe bump on the TA are more precise and controlled low in a useful ... word. The AT also has a pretty amazing detail. In short, if you are looking for n...
Summary: Good isolation, not bad sound quality (at that price) but to much bass. It's good when you are walking down the street or at work because you can isolate yourself from noise and other s*** ;). But if you want to get good natural sound at home from better source than mp3 player or mobile phone it's bad choice, I can compare it with AKG K240 MKII studio it's much more expensive but sound quality is much better. Cord is too short.
Summary: After trying out around 100 headphones in my local store raging from £15 to £200 these sounded the best out of the bunch. Having said that they are still just okay and I was aware of that when I was buying them since I hadn't found anything better at that time. ( I bought my pair from a reputable dealer on the High Street not Amazon) In terms of comfort they are very tight on the head and can't be worn for extended periods of time (I have a small head).
Summary: Had these headphones for about 3 months now and have been a wee bit disappointed with them. They hurt your ears after a while. I have a head the size of a chick pea and they still manage to cause uncomfort after about an hour wearing them. I use them almost every day and the bass is good but maybe at the expense of overall sound quality.
Summary: Deliberated for a while before picking these in feb 2011 to replace a pair of Sennheiser hd202 that had lost sound in one ear - the classic headphone fault. Wanted to spend a little bit more, up to 50 quid say. These came in at 35 or so, with strong reviews every where I looked so great. They look ok, fold up nicely into a provided pouch and sound great. Loads of base - i turned by iPod to neutral on the equaliser from years of "Hip Hop" settings. But. Two things.
Excerpt: Покупались 2 пары наушников и у них одинаковые проблемы.
Pros: Яркий дизайн, мощный звук.
Cons: Давят уши. Я бы сказала СЛИШКОМ БОЛЬНО ДАВЯТ НА УШИ. Первый год носить более 30 минут было невозможно. Через 1,5 года провод начал ломаться на стыке со штекером. Короткий и хлипкий провод. Шум в метро слышен всё равно.
Summary: Seit geraumer Zeit höre ich meine Musik unterwegs mit dem "SONY MDR-ZX300", der soweit auch gut ist, allerdings habe ich nach größerer Recherche festgestellt, dass es in der Preisklasse bis 50 Euro wohl noch ganz andere Klangwelten und Qualitätsstufen gibt. Daraufhin habe ich mir das Dreiergespann "AKG K 518LE", "Koss Porta Pro KTC" und den "Noontec Zoro HD" zum Testen nach Hause bestellt. Mit welcher Musik habe ich getestet? u. a.
