  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Overall compared to other closed back portable headphones at a decent price, these offer great sound. The seal is great while still maintaining the comfort. Only one problem though, the way these cans are designed makes them hard to slide to fit your head perfectly, but after a couple times doing it, it becomes fairly easy. The bass is a little too much when listening through some cd players and home devices but out of an iPod, it`s perfect.

  • Excerpt: Good sound, great base for headphones. I love listening to Metallica on them. Expensive if all you want is travel headphones but well worth it for the sound quality.

  • Summary: Ayant déja un exemplaire en ma possession, je peux dire que ce casque c'est une pure merveille avec une restitution parfaite des graves. Si je devais noter ce produits je lui donnerai sans hésiter 24/20.

  • Summary: Hallo Leute, ich möchte euch kurz etwas über meinen AKG K26P berichten. Ich habe mir den Kopfhörer zugelegt, als ich mir zu Weihnachten eine MP3-Jukebox gekauft habe. Eigentlich war ich auf einen Nackenbügelkopfhörer geschlossener Bauform aus, aber der entsprechende Sennheiser war mir entschieden zu teuer. Also hab ich mich nach geschlossenen Modellen mit normalem Kopfbügel umgesehen und bin auf diesen AKG gestoßen.
  • Pros: Klangbild, Schallabschirmung, Klappsystem
  • Cons: Tragekomfort u . a .  kritisch
