AKG Rocks

I have owned these for many years and its almost hard to listen with any other headphones than these in the studio. I'm a big fan of AKG including the headphones, mics, etc. They always seem to just sound right to me.

AKG K 271 MK II Headphones

I love these phones. Not only the sound, but the comfort is fantastic. I can "live" in the phones for much longer periods of time.

Great sound and very comfortable

I used these phones in the recording studio for tracking my vocals with premixed tracks. I have a pair of 240 Mk II's in my own home studio for mixing, and these are very similar, but the 240's are semi-open and these are closed back, which is important for tracking vocals in front of a sensitive studio microphone. The sound is very clean and open, and they are very comfortable to wear for long studio sessions. Having only used them for one project, I'm no expert, but they seem like an excellent value.

Very well sounding,accurate

Sound almost exactly the same as my main (5 way, 3 way multi amped, 15 inch sub) monitoring sytem, on a Lexicon MX400 used as convertor (from sweetwater...), minus the room reverb, which is absolutely geat for reference. Also, the bass variations, the sampling reconstruction issues and the stereo imaging issues sound alike, apart from the obvious binoral matters, s I'm ver glad my monitoring agrees almost rucksichtloss with itself: changes my major monitor system (with high grade electronics components and no bass-reflex) reveal a *very* similar overall soundscape sthese tyes of hedphones by chance are extremely slim, so I feel very good to be able to cleanly hear what's there in a mix, instead of some interpretation.
