  • Summary: I literally just picked a pair of these up from guitar center about an hour ago. I brought them home and compared them with my Rokit 6 monitors and cheap Senhieser HD 201 headphones.
  • Pros: Comfy fit, Overall volume gain is good
  • Cons: Bass response is inaccurate and overcompensated

  • Summary: I wanted some cheap cans for a bit of fun and got the K44s. I am delighted with them. They are very plastic, very light, fit very well around the ear with the clever AKG self adjusting band. The leatherette pads are sweaty and I keep lifting them to air out my ears.
  • Pros: Midrange detail and clarity.
  • Cons: Large, plastic and sweaty pads.

  • Summary: Bought this one on a budget for home vocal and overall recording monitoring. Does a perfect job: decent clarity and dynamics, and even at volumes higher than any performer would ask for, they could sleep next to any large-diaphragm condenser without feedback.
  • Pros: Price, sensitivity, REALLY closed
  • Cons: hard plastic on your ears, cheap feel

  • Summary: Got these quite a while ago and never really used these since I have always liked speakers more. When I started using them again I noticed how good they sound, even when playing 128kbps sound. The bass is very good, and pretty much sounds warm and nice.
  • Pros: Good bass, fit very well, quite comfortable, extremely affordable.
  • Cons: Not very adjustable, large.

  • Summary: I have a set of AKG K240'a and a set of AKG K271's (originals) and I'm looking into buying 6 sets of AKG K44's. I run a home based studio where I record and mix indie bands. In a studio setting there are 3 general uses for headphones and, ideally, you want 3 different types for those uses.
  • Pros: In the right setting, these headphones are champs.
  • Cons: in the wrong setting, these headphones are chumps.

  • Excerpt: Der ohrumschließende Kopfhörer trumpft mit einem starken Bassfundament auf, das von klaren Höhen unterstützt wird. Insgesamt hat der Bass aber die klare Oberhand. Auch wenn der Sound angesichts des Preises kaum Anlass zu Kritik gibt, sind wir nicht der Meinung, dass der AKG in einem Studio oder zum...
  • Pros: Stylishes Design, Optimal an eigenen Kopf anpassbar, Gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, Basslastiges Klangbild, Austauschbare Ohrpolster
  • Cons: Kein ausgewogenes Klangbild, Für Transport ungeeignet, Mikrofon fehlt, Fernbedienung nicht vorhanden, Keine Farbauswahl verfügbar
