AKG K 171 Studio
I've had these headphones for a few years. They were on sale at the music store, and I wanted to get a few extra pairs of headphones for the studio. I tried them out there, and they sounded great. They look very stylish and high-tech, which is something I do enjoy. They are very comfortable to wear. They have a lot of padding since they are a closed-ear design. They don't press on your head very hard if you set the headband to the right size. The response on these is 18hz to 26khz, so you're going to hear every bit of the spectrum and then some. Since they are closed-ear the isolation you can get is pretty good, so details will definitely emerge. They aren't super isolated, so they may not be the best choice for something like recording drums or a really loud guitar where you need total quiet in the headphones, but they work well for pretty much everything else. A nice feature is the detachable cord, so if something happens to your cord you can get it replaced instead of having to get new headphones. The cord connects with a mini-xlr connection, and then there is a standard stereo jack for the actual end of the headphone cable. They also give you 2 cable choices, one is straight and one is coiled, and they are of different lengths. This is convenient because I hate coiled cables and you usually don't get that choice. New, these are around $200, but I got mine on sale for half that and it was a total steal. Even at their normal price I think that these would be a good investment. They stack up very well to the other headphone types at this price range, and they look better and are more comfortable than a lot of them. I would get them again.

I use it for 2 years and I keep to mix, I do not want another for a more audiophile listening, I have the K340 which is my reference, but to make music that is K171!
Value correct price and yes, I'll buy if necessary!

I've had about 2 years.
I use it mainly for sound recording and mixing.

For me it would be perfect if it was not as tight on the ears, after 2 or 3 hours, remove it is a liberation.
Apart from that it has only quality!

Very solid, comes with leather and velvet pads and a jack extension, all you can expect anything.

It is very accurate and super well insulated, can be a bit flattering on low and still I quibble a bit.

AKG K 171 Studio
I do not really have a point of comparison with other headphones. It seems fairly straight and analytical.

Used for several years.
yes small atria, but comfortable.
This is a headphone that insulates well glued, that makes you want to liberate themselves in after a while. But it's a little mandatory if you want to report closed, immersed in the zic, without much of his room.

Comfortable for me over several hours without problem.

I have also opened another huge stereo headset that does not touch the ear but does not isolate at all so you have choices! depending on the situation.

So I would say close, detailed, a slight bump in the highs (brighter than my Focal speakers). Widely adapted to work on a mix.

AKG K 171 Studio
I use it for almost a year.
The little trouble is that the earbuds are not very large and can not make the rim of the ear, making it very uncomfortable for long pr costs.
I have tried other models jms but the sound reproduction seems to me excellent, not too low unlike some headphones. We easily detect the sound imperfections that are not audible on other Systmes of costs.
The quality is on it again but if I had a choice I would take the K271 pr + 20 euros.
