Excellent price/quality ratio with some caveats (bought them at 99£)
27 February 2015
Summary: Disclaimer: in no way I can be called audiophile or something like that, I just like to listen music in a nice way. This is my first pair of closed back high quality headphones. I have a pair of Sennheiser HD650 since 4 year and that's the only comparison I can think of.
Summary: It’s not easy write something new about this headphones, plenty of reviews populate the web, so I’ll try the easy way: my very own listening impressions. This headphones looks big and sturdy, and in fact they are; not too heavy and very comfortable to wear, though they will heat your ears a bit.
Highly recommended but only if you can adjust the bass on your source equipment - a little bass shy.

Summary: Previously I would never have dreamed of spending £100 on a pair of headphones; however, I wanted a good pair to use with a new hi-res music player I purchased and these get good reviews on line and are heavily discounted from their RRP.
Summary: Like most women, my wife is unable to appreciate the need to play music at the appropriate volume i.e loud. These headphones allow me to listen to my music at the necessary volume, whilst the closed back design eliminates the constant whining noise she is prone to make whilst I am listening either...
Summary: Excellent product for the price - £99! I couldn't justify - or afford - the £250/300 range until I saw these which were reviewed by several respected HiFi magazines at £250. They challenged the Sennheiser and Grado equivalents in that price category.
Summary: I loved the AKG headphones. I love my music and love it to sound amazing. I have a set of AKG450's which I love wearing out and about but ordered these as I wanted to move up on quality and based on the reviews I decided to purchase. These are an amazing set of headphones.
Summary: V v good quality for the price. An economic alternative to loudspeakers, and you won't disturb the missus while you listen, if she's asleep! As with all headphones, you would be well-advised not to crank up the volume too much, to safeguard your hearing.
Summary: Superb. Very comfy, sturdy, light as a feather, with long, durable cable. A class product. Anything with a headphone jack will benefit greatly with these plugged in. I would heartily recommend these for anyone looking for quality headphones and doubt there are any better to be had in the £100 range.
Summary: OK - these just arrived today so this is a very brief review which I will update after these have had time to settle in. So opening the package you know these are quality phones. Packaging is superb and weighs almost as much as the headphones.
Summary: Having had a high end hifi system for many years headphone listening has never been my preferred listening choice. Recently I have been forced into headphone listening due to noisy new neighbours.
