  • Excerpt: These over ears are just beautiful, the design and its materials are great but I have to say that I expected more from these. The volume isn't really high at all and the basses are not so powerful but if you don't mind listening to music at a medium volume level you're good to go, absolutely get...

  • Summary: Personally, this is my favorite headphone.   I gave this headphone a conservative 4/5 because I simply have not had the chance to try all the headphones in the world, so I'm sure there are some headphones that can hit 5/5.   First of all, these are closed back headphones with a good amount of isolation. With that said, it is amazing how 'airy' these headphones feel. They offer tight bass with punch which is quite unique to its class.
  • Pros: Very spacious, tight bass with punch, sparkle treble region, easy to drive
  • Cons: Some people might not like the treble region, the cable seems flimsy

  • Summary: I'm a newbie to hi-fi headphones, but I'll do what I can.   The bass is fantastic, and I point this out because so many people complain about the lack of bass. It isn't this thumping and muddy sound, but very clear with an entire range to it. For bass-heads this might not be what you want. Although, when I sampled dub step on them (not really a fan of the genre) I could get the bass poppin' by changing the EQ.
  • Pros: Extremely clear, amazing bass, dynamic range, nice earmuffs, seems easy to drive
  • Cons: Non-detachable cable, huge, cable could use an extra 6"-12"

  • 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.   The head phones do justice to Noah and the Whale's music for their complex string orchestra and rock music mix.   Great jogging companion.
  • 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: **Introduction** I have a massive passion for Music and love listening to all kinds of Music, There's rarely a day that goes by when I don't listen to Music and I listen to music with my headphones in bed before going to sleep. A couple of years ago I bought a pair of AKG K450s which I am still very impressed with and after owning a few pairs of Sennheiser headphones in the past I am now a slightly bigger fan of AKG headphones, This increased when I bought my latest pair...
  • Pros: Superb performance, Great offers on
  • Cons: Not a lot wrong at all

  • Excerpt: ayant un akg k701 ouvert, je cherchais un fermé pour remplacer un shure srh940 qui tombait en miettes. bilan : - très confortable même si j'aurais préféré du velours à la place du simili cuir des oreillettes - isolation vis à vis de l'extérieur correcte, un peu moins bien que le shure srh940 - le son me rappelle le k701, extrêmement détaillé. les basses ne sont pas exagérées.

  • Summary: Sjukt bra ljud! Inte det där tunga basljudet (om det är det du är ute efter) utan rent luftigt och så där nära man kan komma verkligheten. Ja, det känns som du faktiskt är i rummet där musiken spelas. Dom har inget brusreducerande egenskaper, men kåporna tillsammans med det rena ljudet gör att det mesta ljud runtomkring faktiskt filtreras bort ändå. Så riktigt bra lurar till riktigt bra pris!

  • Excerpt: Купленные наушники порадовали возможно, потому, что сравнить с K 550 не могу - в 550 не слушал. Очень комфортно садятся на голову и закрывают уши. Прозрачное детальное звучание. Выглядят очень добротно, качественно. Упакованы в прочную коробку. Не обратил внимание при заказе, что эта модель наушников AKG K 551 разработана в пару к смартфону, поэтому, видимо, шнур очень короткий, и потому же в комплекте нет переходника на разъём jack 6.3 mm А к телефону наушники мне не...
  • Pros: Качество изготовления и упаковки
  • Cons: Относительные: AKG K 551 разработаны к смартфону, поэтому, видимо, шнур очень короткий, и потому же в комплекте нет переходника на разъём jack 6.3 mm

  • Excerpt: Ce casque tient sa place : quel volume sur la tête, quel plaisir dans les oreilles. En plus, il isole parfaitement l'auditeur de tout ce qui pourrait gêner.
