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.
Summary: i bought these to replace sennheiser HD25s i bought for a reduced $94 price and actually like the sound of these BETTER. they have deeper bass with less midrange brightness and aren't shabby in the detail department.
Pros: reasonably flat with great treble detail
Cons: a little light in the bass & can get uncomfortable
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.
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.
