  • 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. Mixing/listening // Vocal booth monitoring // live room monitoring.
  • Pros: In the right setting, these headphones are champs.
  • Cons: in the wrong setting, these headphones are chumps.

  • 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. their 2 greatest weaknesses are bass politeness and a little bit of treble enthusiasm that emphasizes siblants on some tracks.
  • Pros: reasonably flat with great treble detail
  • Cons: a little light in the bass & can get uncomfortable

  • 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. Immediately I noticed the bass response is too high and inaccurate, which is disappointing from a studio mixing point of view. Due to this I'd imagine these get a lot of good reviews based off the pyschoacoustic effect that louder is better.
  • Pros: Comfy fit, Overall volume gain is good
  • Cons: Bass response is inaccurate and overcompensated

  • 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. Also: very good audio quality on Ipods&pans or laptops, without any disturbance for your surroundings.
  • 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. They are very comfortable and the band that automatically adjusts works very well. The one thing I would've liked is the part that connects each earphone to be adjustable because these earphones are pretty big like that.
  • Pros: Good bass, fit very well, quite comfortable, extremely affordable.
  • Cons: Not very adjustable, large.

Great sounding headphones at a great price.

  • Excerpt: These are great sounding headphones at a great price. For less than $50 you get sound quality of much more expensive headphones. They are very light weight and comfortable to wear. The feature that makes them so comfortable is the self adjusting top head strap. The ear pads are also very comfortable and keep the great sound streaming to your ears. When I was looking for headphones I did lots of research on many different brands.

  • Summary: These headphones are not mine, but my friends. I just decided to take a listen and since there are not alots of reviews of these headphones, I thought I would share my opinions. I apologize for my english, since its not my native language    Comfort: These headphones have a self-adjusting headband which actually works quite nice and feels comfortable to wear. The earpads are cheap feeling plastic, and appear to be glued into the headphones.
  • Pros: Price
  • Cons: Not that good sounding

  • 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.   They are good for classical and jazz and retain that AKG strength of detail. The bass is tuned quite high and can be muddy and dull. Kick drums are a thud with little detail and the dynamics are OK.
  • Pros: Midrange detail and clarity.
  • Cons: Large, plastic and sweaty pads.
