Summary: I have used these lightly and have had them out for repair more than I have had them on my head. The band is an absolute joke, unless you plan on never moving them from one spot do not buy them.
Summary: So i bought these around 7 days ago. and so far i'm happy about these, right out of the box, you will find the sound, to be some what annoying, at least that's what i felt, the highs sounded like white noise and the bass was okay, but kinda muddy. mids were in the background. it took 4 hours of breaking in, before something happend for me, the high's started to become precise and bass became tight and precise, mid's still in the background but not as much as before.
Pros: Great SQ, Awesome design, good soundstageing
Cons: Bad comfort if you have a ear of bigger size.
Got these headphones today and I am happy now. Sound quality is amazing

Summary: Got these headphones today and I am happy now. Sound quality is amazing, headphones looks cool and its very comfortable. 100£ for these is normal price, not to mutch, not to less. But yes, if those will be without 50% price off, for 200£ can get better ones, like Vmoda.
Summary: Do not buy these! A nearly £100 reduction is not a bargain, it's an act of desperation. On the plus side these headphones sound amazing. For the first few hours or days they stay together. Apparently AKG's Chinese manufacturer used the wrong material in the construction which has supposedly since been rectified. Well I'm on my third pair and although they are supposed to be defect free these have also developed a crack in the joint between the element and the headband.
Summary: I was really excited to look on Memory Expresses website to see that they started carrying AKG, I just had to try everything they brought in. These are the best headphones that Memory Express currently sells as of writing this review. I have tried headphones that are $400 and above, but without a headphone amp or properly equalized music, you're not going to notice a difference. Without a doubt, these are the best headphones I have used in my life.
Pros: - When you put them on, the seal they make over your ears is perfect, you can't hear anyone outside of the headphones.
- The swivel ability of the cups allows you to pack these up with ease or where them how you please
- Stylish design, you'll definitely attract attention!
- Sound quality is flawless, bass response is perfect not too loud or muddy by any means, mids and highs create an awesome sound space
Cons: Having used these headphones for a week now, I have not noticed any issues with them.
If you do some searching on the internet, you'll read complaints of the mechanism connecting the cups to the band breaking on people due to "poor design". However, in my opinion, you'd have to go out of your way to intentionally break these.
Summary: Best headphones I have ever listened to. Hands down. The seal that the headphones make around your ears is fantastic, I couldn't hear anything around me with these headphones on. When I was listening to music, I was blown away by the clarity and crispness of the bass, mids, and highs - the recreation of the sound was unlike anything i've ever heard. Would recommend this to anyone in the market for a good set of headphones.
Pros: - Excellent design
- Comfortable fit on both the headpiece and over the ear pieces
- Makes a very nice seal over the ears so you don't hear anything around you
- Sound quality is AMAZING (very good bass response!)
Summary: Swapped my beats for these headphones and they are far superior - well worth the extra money spent. Bass really come through, they are really comfortable and the headphone cable is long enough not to get in the way.
