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: 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.
Excerpt: I am extremely satisfied with the balance of these headphones. I write a lot of music, and I find these as a good substitute when I cannot use powered monitors. I am very pleased with the sound representation, though some research will show these do have some emphasis on bass, which I'd think is not an issue to most considering the average user does not want to invest in an expensive signal amplifier that would be necessary to represent the bass if they did make these...
Excerpt: I've tried countless models of headphones over the years, and spent a considerable amount of time trying to find the best headphones for monitoring and mixing available. The KRKs give the clearest, most accurate reference I've ever heard, revealing even the most subtle details that are normally lost in other headphones. I have a project studio at home in a "less-than-ideal" room, and these headphones have made mixing a pleasure!
Excerpt: I was looking for a set of headphones for use on the road. I bought these after reading a lot of headphone reviews on recording/musicians/technical forums. I often do a lot of audio editing on my laptop on commutes to and from the studio and on trips. I was looking for something with a a flat frequency response, offered good isolation from ambient noise and also fit my laptop case. The KNS 8400s offered all of these features and more!
Pros: Carrying case, Comfortable, Flat response, Great value, Screw on adaptor, Solid construction
Excerpt: I have bought this just because i have a studio in my basement, I have done some sound proofing but still wasn't satisfied, on spending more towards sound proofing material, I decided to go for the KRK studio monitoring headphones so that I could do my work more comfortably without disturbing the neighborhood, the best thing is that I do not get any complains about being loud any more, I have multiple choice of monitors to select from as i use a VRM box with this and...
Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Sound, Low Distortion, Powerful
Excerpt: A flat, no nonsense, highly accurate response that has enhanced my mixdowns exponentially. That KNS 8400's have allowed me to accurately place sounds within the sonic field which has given my tracks that "full" sound they've been lacking. They're essentially KRK monitors for the ears, and that's a good thing. If you produce, you need these headphones. For the price range, they can't be touched.
