  • 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.

  • 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: 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

music to my eyes

  • Summary: Great sound quality, large sound stage, very comfortable wearing it. Slightly lacking in bass, but since I don't listen to base heavy music, this is great for me.

If you know what reference headphones means, don't read......

  • Summary: However, if you want a set of headphones to plug into your iPod/iPhone that will absolutely blow your mind with their stereo separation and 'pure' sound reproduction for every instrument, including base guitar (meaning, not at all like Beats) played on every track you own then buy these.

Great 'phones!

  • Summary: I know many people have said they aren't bassy, but if you drive them properly they kick some serious butt. I use a Fiio device to drive mine and they are astonishingly good. Highly recommended.
