    Headphones sound a bit pinched

A headband that automatically adapts system of "smooth" ear easy to maintain and in addition interchangeable (a spare pair even comes with) a detachable cable "right" to 3 meters connected via the headphone mini plug -XLR (a lifeline "telephone" 5 meter also comes with); I understand why they like on the radio ^^

    This headphone is pretty solid at first sight. Above all, it is light, it is almost forgotten ^^

    Sound "clip" a little, especially in the treble, but nothing serious, you get used to.

    Good quality and a good Q / P ratio

    I have for years, bought not too expensive new. A headphone that meets very well his contract, solid, which fits nicely in time, comfortable (important that), good sound quality (important too of course), practical with its cable that may change if, cheap, ... what more?
    I can compare it with a Sennheiser HD250 linear 2 that I use on my hi-fi and I have used for (tens of) years, Sennheiser is better for my taste, but AKG is not behind, he holds the comparison very well.
    A choice that I recommend for the type of user that I am: sensitive to sound quality, but not a purist, no mixing, real insulation.
    For the price (it revolves around hundred euros if I remember correctly), if I lose I live redeemed.

    I use this headset mainly to listen to the sound and music on my computer. I happen to also connect my Hi-fi, and also use it when I record parts of skyscrapers at night.
    Semi-open headphones, but I find it actually closed or open, and that's fine with me. The build quality is exemplary, it is strong, lightweight and comfortable. It does not take the head in a vise (as opposed to a Sony but I always I stored furniture to stall, and yet it had cost me much pus expensive). The cable is strong, I had to drive dozens of times over my chair with casters, but it holds up well! And if the cable broke, well it turns, it is not life grand?
    Practice too, jack choice: small or large jack adapter supplied. With that we are ready.

    Solid headphone, well designed, comfortable. The cable is detachable. I have for years, it does not move, neither sounds nor held.

    To listen to music on my computer, it's perfect. It seems that neutrality is not perfect, it was not me generations me, I do not mix, at least with this degree of finesse. I found a good reproduction of all frequencies, but perhaps I'm not demanding enough?
    Insulation is good fucking, you'd almost closed headphones.

    Very comfortable headphones

    I needed a headphone to play the guitar at night without waking up the family and neighbors. My main criterion is comfort, I can not bear long headphones in general. This is what attracted me to the AKG, I can wear long without it bothers me. It comes with two different pads for comfort.
    The build quality is very good, no worries in 4 years.
    I could compare BeyerDynamic including DT880, which seemed more neutral and punchy as the AKG, but I preferred the comfort of the latter, because fortunately the game remains a minority headphone for me. In my opinion, this is indeed a headphone to avoid serious work in the studio.

    That said, I've used a few times for very little work and, in particular taking into account the low surplus, it makes good service.

    Good headphones for listening to sound

    I use the MPC to play on without too much noise.

    The headset is comfortable and the sound is not bad. But clearly a lot of bass.

    The value for the price is right having paid just under € 100.

    Buy to replace my DT 770 PRO because it give me a headache uncomfortable and too low for the monitor is 0
    After I tried a crack for AKG K 240 MKII and 24 h after a break-through volume, you know there are no pictures of the low dry exellent precise the medium and high frequencies as well. Music and there are well ventilated all instrusments a place
    and the more super comfortable and we feel almost no light, semi open but it still insulates and deliver it with a pair of
    velvet pad + 1 + 1 normal cable style telephone twisted good value for money

    I bought these headphones about 6 months ago my APRS have made the NS10 me.

    I do it again this election provided they need a neutral trs headphone comfortable and versatile high-fidelity.
    To mix and master, really arrtez to write anything, it is not possible to assay one or qualiser reverb ... let srieux

    I have been using 1 / 2 months and I'm an amateur.
    Before, I had a headphone early end and beginning of price too.
    With experience, I do it again this election. Coupled with a sound card to a higher level, for me it's killing this thing. :-)
    I do not know the other headsets in this price game, nor higher than elsewhere.
    But the difference with the low end is very high.
    We hear the voice, lyrics, everything is very audible.

    edit my rating:
    It's getting better. I will not leave her.
    Even with sound cards very low end.

    Hello,

    great headphone, I love it. A bit cold at first, his right, but now that I'm used to and he has wandered a bit, it's really a treat and I can not stand my other headphones. Comfortable as possible.

    Cable Replacement, Headset spare, when's the same thing in competition?

    on the other hand, more attention is now made in Austria but MADE IN CHINA, since 2010.

    I suggest you wait a few returns if you do not want to wipe the plaster of relocation made by AKG or turn to other brands.

    To avoid

    I use it to control a brief registration, since May 2009.
    I have not tried the headphones, only followed the data sheet.
    The feature I like best is the detachable cable, the risk of breaking
    it is low. For the sound quality is poor. Keep it on the head over an hour is painful, however, putting his head in a vise. A redo my choice would be very different. The quality / price is not fair.

    Bjr, I use this headset for 1 month and a half.

    I have not tried this model av pr purchase, but had a Sennheiser and Koss
    much earlier.

    What I like most comfort, the look, the sound overall is very good qd see, very good. But ...
    I like the least sound, despite the break that improves things a bit: that lack of midrange in the center of the spectrum.
    with the tps I do not think it's because the little rédibitoire medium he is damn good

    C a shame because despite this the sound has great qualities.
    Among other things it is tiring and not specific enough.
    And the effect of space, breathing sound is interresting

    I do not refer only choice, if I find the opportunity to try several headphones at respective industry.

    Qd because he has qualities even in relation to its price, not given

    Otherwise, despite this defect can be what I would do choice

    PS: c true that low as it has been said previously a second opinion ds qualities despite lack of precision pr qd even me, with ts it will understand why, but I love it.
