Excerpt: I am a videographer, editor, and music producer as well as a huge music listener. These headphones are fantastic. I have been using KRK products for the past 5 years and have always felt that their products produce very accurate representations of the program material. That being said, these headphones are no exception. First off, they are very comfortable.
Excerpt: I use these when editing video and can't monitor in the room. I have been very happy with the sound quality - better than the Sony cans I was using.Sound is clean with good highs and mids. Bass isn't over the top and seems to deliver a true representation.As a bonus, when traveling, they twist to fold flat into the provided bag.
Summary: These are my first pair of headphones (ever), so take this review with a grain of salt. I never used headphones before because I didn't see why I ever need a pair. My speakers were fine and I don't listen to music seriously when I'm outside of my house, so it would have been a waste of money to me. I did however use a cheap, poor quality pair only for some brainwave entrainment experiements.
Pros: Replaceable cord, very detailed, lightweight, many wearable positions
Cons: Incompatible with glasses, small soundstage, bass light
Summary: Just a quick review of the KRK KNS 8400 headphones.
For listening and mixing i use a combination of the KRK KNS 8400's, AKG K702's and the Sennheiser HD 650's and these headphones really do hold their own.
To my ears these headphones are brilliant for listening to punk / rock / metal etc and i don't believe them to be as cold and analytical as some may say and really bring tracks to life such as Bring Me The Horizons latest album 'Sempiternal' producing a very well...
Pros: Detailed, Accurate and a Fantastic Bass Response
Summary: Studio recording and mixing ain't child's play.There's no place for cheap tricks,because standarts(see some AKG K240 or Beyerdynamic DT150) have been already there for decades,and newcomers are overlooked with some suspicion.
KRK Systems have been into studio business for more than 20 years,and their distinctive yellow-black monitors are well known to anybody in studio recording.What's new here is their new headphone line,the KNS-6400 and KNS-8400.
Summary: As per standard, I will give a bit of a background to premise this review. I do this before all of my reviews just to give the reader an idea of my experiences. This allows the potential consumer to best judge my opinions and ultimately decide what kind of bearing my words have with them. My reviews aim to express my thoughts with the main intention being to arm the reader with the knowledge to make the best purchasing decisions.
Pros: Lightweight, Comfortable, Easy to Drive, Balanced midrange
Summary: Comfort and build quality:
The KNS8400 comes with wonderfully soft memory foam pleather ear and headband pads. They can get hot after several hours use, but that's expected for closed pleather. They clamp fairly well, not too tight, not too low, I can have a moderate headbang and these headphones won't budge.
The cable is detachable and about 8ft long(as measured with a 15cm ruler).
Pros: Mids, details, comfort, price, neutrality
Cons: Soft pouch instead of hard case, cable is pretty naff
