AKG Acoustics K26P Foldable Headphones

  • Summary: I decided to buy the k26p headphones after i read about how the sound was on par or better than the sennheiser px200s. That might be true, but the design is pretty poor. Each headphone puts so much pressure on your ears! You cant listen to them that long because the pressure hurts too much after a while. Also, they stay on top of your head with two little square foam blocks on the metal band; about the furthest from ergonomic you can get.

  • Summary: These thing hurt and they look stupid because they are bulky and perch on top of your ears. They're really uncomfortable. Don't buy them!!!!

  • Summary: I bought these on sale for about $28. These phones are not worth $60. No question about that. I've been using them for 2 and a half years, and they're always my "go-to" pair for portable listening. They've got a clean, crisp sound with some accentuated bass (which I like). Damn good for the price. They don't cancel every bit of it, but they muffle outside noise, and it becomes almost not existent if you crank the volume of your tunes a bit.

  • Summary: The sound on these is quite good, but the headband is a bit constricting (you will feel pressure on the top of your head) and the ear pieces become uncomfortable as well during extended listening. This set is also rather on the flimsy side, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone that isn't in the habit of being exceptionally careful with their headphones.

  • Summary: UPDATE: I have read that a lot of current buyers of these headphones find them to have overblown, boomy bass that dominates the sound. This certainly isn't the case with the pair I have heard, and it is widely suspected that AKG has changed the sound of these headphones. If you can find the "old" kind that sound good, consider my review applicable, if not, tread with caution.

  • Summary: Consider this review a contrast to the one below. My AKG K-26P headphones must be of recent vintage, as the bass is very (VERY) much the dominating frequency. Even after extended run-in they are still bass heavy. Running them through a portable headphone amp does little to make them better. But, and it's a big but, run straight out of an iPod (for example), their added bass is a boon to the overall sonic spectrum.

  • Summary: Bass heavy headphones. Too much for me to handle and I'm into trance, house and hip-hop music. The bass just takes over everything and its not the good kind of bass either. Just boomy and bloated bass. No highs to speak of. Very fatiguing and not the least bit enjoyable. The only good things these cans have going for them is their portability and comfort. Just my 2 cents.

  • Summary: Excellent for a portable device or any application. Clear highs,a focused mid, and a tight bass. Could use a slight boost in the 60-100HZ range but very good as is in most situations. These phones have a very "live" sound with great stereo separation and definition.Very adjustable with a nice firm fit. In almost daily use for the past three months,very durable.Very comparable to Bose on-the-ear and superior to the Bose over-the-ear phones I tried prior to purchase.
