Summary: If you research these, they are basically the same as the K701 and K702 (one reviewer performs tests showing nearly identical response curves). I liked the option of having the detachable cables in two different lengths.
Pros: These sound great and compare favorably with my Sennheiser HD650s. They have a little more "sparkle" than the Sennheisers and are very clean and detailed. I'm using them with a Matrix M-State headphone amp which will drive them to ear damaging levels with no distortion. Thankfully, they sound ama...
Cons: The earpads are quite comfortable, and the overall fit is good, but the headband is pretty stiff and has bumps on it that dig into my head. I can actually feel corresponding bumps in my skin after a listening session. It's not painful and not very noticeable while listening, but when you take the...
Summary: It's a 2013 model, actually. First impressions, on comparing this to the Grado SR-125 the AKG's are replacing: It was readily apparent that the AKG's had an airier, sort of more crystalline sound.
Summary: I mostly listen to melodeath (in flames-style stuff) but dabble in everything (hence audiophile). These do everything well except maybe dubstep/rap. Some people like punchy bass in rock/metal.. not me. I got these from headroom, but they didn't have a review on the 'egg and they deserve one.
Pros: Comfortable - the only more comfortable cans I've owned were siberias back when icemat was making them (pre steel-series) Bright - Not for everyone, but these really shine in mid to high ranges. The bass is there; its rich and clean, doesn't mud the rest of the ranges.. but it doesn't have the pu...
Cons: Price. While these are awesome, there are cans out there far cheaper that are ALMOST as good. I'm looking at you, grado. These have a similar sound, a bit more balanced. If you like the SR60i/80i/120is you won't be disappointed until you compare the prices.
Summary: honestly some of the best pro quality headphones on the market, straight out of the package the bass does suffer a bit, but after listening to the Beatles "Revolver" a couple hundred times the bass cleans up. honestly better than the Sennheiser's just require some time to fill out
Summary: Really rate these headphones. They were bought as a replacement for my aging Grado SR225's. They worked straight of the box and the sound detail and comfort levels are simply fantastic. The Grado's are very good headphones but they've never been comfortable to wear for long unlike these from AKG.
Summary: I purchased these recently as I already own a pair of Seinheisser momentums. They're fantastic headphones, but they hurt my ears after a while as the pad rests on the actual ear. The AKG arrived and I must admit I don't have a keen ear for audio.
Summary: The sound is flawless at all frequencies and at any volume. Simply the best. Get the Fiio E12 portable amplifier if you are going to use them with your IPod or else they will not be loud enough. The iPod simply does not have the capability to drive such large speakers at a high volume.
