  • 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: 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. I also wanted an all round set of phones that I could use in the house or when out and about, which ruled out open back.
  • Pros: Dynamic range, spacious soundstage, clarity
  • Cons: short and flimsy cord, portability

beautiful sounding, very comfortable

  • Summary: beautiful sounding, very comfortable, if very warm when using for a long time, great for the train, cutting out a lot of sound and effortlessly producing a splendid soundstage and great frequency range. Open, detailed, and the mic works fine with Android phones, but not the volume, just the middle button... so it COULD be better with regard to that.

excellent choice for this price

  • Summary: It's a typical AKG headphone, perfect treble and human voice, good instruments and fidelity. First 2 or 3 weeks may have nearly no bass, however, it will appear after 200 hours and the bass is limited but acceptable. As I'm recently focus on classic and female singers, it's perfect for me. It may not as good as K701 and K702, but it worth its price. It is also easy to drive and get a good listening experience.

Superb

  • Summary: Awesome pair of headphones. Superbly detailed and very clean sound. Wide soundstage, certainly for closed back headphones. A bit large but still looking good. Could have a very little bit more bass, but it's ok since the level of detail is so good. You'll hear things you've never heard before in songs you've listened to a thousand times!!

amazing headphones and for the price i paid awesome value

  • Summary: These need running in before you get much bass out of them... be warned if you put them straight on they sound a bit lacking in any weight.... But once you do - wow.. amazing headphones and for the price i paid awesome value. I've got them connected to my PS4 most of the time - works perfect chatting to mates whilst playing... but you really need to plug them in to a good hi-fi to get the most out of them.

a really decent product

  • Summary: the quality of these headphones cannot be underestimated. for the discount offered at the time of purchase i really don't think i could have got a better set of phones. the issue some may have is the lack of bass, but this is because these phones are designed to give even response across the frequency range. personally i don't like oodles of bass, so these are the right set for me. for others, who listen to bass heavy tunes, they might not be the right set.

Built like a tank with looks to match

Jordan, Amazon

  • Summary: These headphones are an absolute bargain for £99; if you're thinking of buying these headphones, you're thinking too hard. There are so many good points about these headphones I'm struggling to find a starting point. The thing that stands out the most though is without doubt the sound. Firstly just to clarify, these are not headphones for the beats crowd who only care about head pounding bass.
