  • Summary: I bought these headphones 6 months ago. They sounded really nice in comparison to Senn PX100. I would say a lot better than PX100. Bass was fuller but not boomy, highs were better too. Maybe the bass was little muddy but it got a little bit better with time and it sounded more concrete after a few weeks. Generally the sound was well-balanced for the price. I play guitar so I was suddenly able to hear a major difference in guitar sound.
  • Pros: light, very comfortable, good sounding, nice "cloth" covered cable with 1/4" screw on jack adapter
  • Cons: fragile headband

  • Summary: For the prize, these sound amazing! I was extremly happy about my purchase until the headband broke. I only used them normally, with no extreme stretching at all. It is made of fragile plastic. This happened after just one month of usage. I might try to build a custom headband, and keep the cups :) Also, for me, a person with a big head and hair, the headphones sits quite tightly. I have the headband extended to the largest.
  • Pros: Flat response. Clear sound with a wide frequency response.
  • Cons: Fragile headband. Might sit tightly on some peoples ears.

Beautiful sound, but the plastic headband snapped!

ian gilkison, Amazon

  • Summary: Initially this unit (shipped as K520) gave a rich full sound and was very comfortable to wear. It comes with about 3 m of high quality audio lead built-in and an eighth inch plug with a high-quality quarter inch adapter. It has an open back design which of course means that ambient sound is not excluded. 5* so far. After 13 months of light use, however, the headband snapped. So far, neither AKG not Amazon will honour the two year warranty.

  • Summary: Came earlier than expected and the sound is simply wonderful and better than some other headphones who would have cost me far more.

decent.

Luke Mead, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought a pair of these a few months ago, had to return them due to the headband snapping but got sent a new pair very quickly. The sound quality is very good but can sometimes be a tiny bit bassy, altogether good sound quality. Only problem is the headband system need to be made stonger. VERY GOOD BUY.

" Not neutral but definitely not negligible "

  • Excerpt: I use it for one day. I have tried many models and it is part of having headphones caught my attention. Indeed, I was looking for a lightweight headphone, a slightly warm and well defined bass round to listen to all kinds of music from jazz to the House)

Reparatur mit Haarreifen und Kabelbindern

Gilli, Amazon
13 July 2014
  • Summary: Wer diesen Kopfhörer selbst einfach reparieren möchte, braucht dazu nur einen Haarreifen und Kabelbinder. Ich hatte- wie viele andere hier- auch das Problem, dass der Bügel gebrochen ist. Allerdings hab ich keinen Anspruch mehr auf Gewährleistung und keine Lust, Geld für einen neuen Kopfhörer auszugeben (schließlich funktioniert er ja eigentlich noch).
