An excellent closed headphone

sohnx, head-fi.org
30 December 2012
  • Excerpt: These are great sounding closed headphones, which mays not be saying much, but, it's really hard to come by closed headphones with that outside your head soundstage and these manage it.
  • Pros: Clear, detailed, liquid mids, tangible pop on drums
  • Cons: Bass a little recessed, upper mids a little too forward

sound great but a little uncomfortable over time

MAC "DRMACB", Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: I won't go into detail about the sound quality of these headphones since I agree with the general consensus here that they sound amazing. But I do have one slight issue that I feel needs raising, over time they do feel a bit uncomfortable on the head.

AKG K550 Reference Class Headphones-Black

Peter Burgess "scotty", Amazon
24 December 2012
  • Summary: These headphones have a very transparent and wide sound stage being very true to the timbre of voices and instruments. They have a close-up presentation well suited to jazz, rock and pop groups which may not always be the case with large classical orchestras until a much longer period of use allows...

real hi-fi

nomenemo, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: Impressed by the material and design very high quality of the object, that seems quite huge at first but is so light, comfortable and full ear surrounding when you wear it.

AKG 550

J. Kiely, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: Bought on the basis of user reviews and 'What HIFi' rating 2012. Build quality is excellent, comfortable to wear. Like the slightly heavier and longer cable that should last for years. Sound range is good if a little light on the bass response - hence the 4* - but hoping that may improve with use.

award winning headphones good but not perfect

clive, kent, Amazon
14 October 2012
  • Summary: a lot of care has been taken over the presentation of these headphones. they were nicely packaged and the build quality is excellent! the sound quality is very good, clarity and detail is very good, but for people who have owned really good phones in the past they might sound a bit lean.

Especially suited for the studio but put to good use at home

J. Ranthe, Amazon
30 September 2012
  • Summary: Very neutral sounding. Especially suited for the studio but put to good use at home. A bargain at 100 pounds. Durable, comfortable, slightly large (probably necessary for the extremely deep bass extension). I bent mine to fit my unusually narrow head.
