  • Summary: Built for outdoor use like jogging and walking because of the shortness of the cable and the remote volume control. I enjoyed listening to classical music, folk, rock music with it. Sounds were rich and well balanced, highly differentiated but with no overpowering bass.
  • Pros: Audio quality, comfort, short cable for outdoors, sound control on cable, powerful enough for iphone and ipods, no excessive bass
  • Cons: If you don't like the Princess Leia look also not suitable for cycling because of safety helmets issue

  • Summary: So, like all of us on this forum, I love music... couldn't live without it. Whilst I own some decent-ish headphones (Bose QC20i, Bose QC15, Sennheiser Momentums) I wanted something with a bit more musicality. The Momentums I never really liked.
  • Pros: Dynamic range, spacious soundstage, clarity
  • Cons: short and flimsy cord, portability

  • Summary: Hello Head-Fi It's been a while since I've participated here since I more or less found my end game and now I only have the urge to change my music player. Today I'll be writing about the AKG K551 headphones. In simple terms, these are superb headphones for all around use.
  • Pros: Great soundstage, good balance, accuracy and sounds natural
  • Cons: Sub bass is a bit lacking to my ears. Headband has a bit of discomfort.
