An amazing, balanced pair of hi-fi headphones

Balanced and even sound, transparency exposes every hidden instrument

Transparency exposes every hidden flaw

These headphones are fantastic for listening to high-quality audio. They're balanced, even, and reproduce all frequencies admirably. Their only stumbling point is that they're

Consumer review (newegg.com)

They do have bass.

 

If you want good accurate sound, it has all the bass you'll need. If you're worried about your swag level and need absurd amounts of bass then get beats and you'll be the coolest ignoramus in your class.

Great, accurate, broad sound ; comfortable, low impedance

Currently made in China even though the first ones were made in Austria, no removable cord and it's 10ft long

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Awful, no bass at all

 

Are this supposed to be Hifi? I got these from work when I asked for sound canceling phones. No these are not that, although pretty good on isolation. But what disappoints me most is that there simply isn't any low frequencies. Rock and heavy metal...

Comfortable, good isolation

Sound quality is unacceptable

AKG k 272 vs High Fidelity headphones

 

I tested these headphones with few songs, on my ibasso dx50 and can say that these offer a disturbing sound & nothing close to High Fidelity,i personally use a pair a pair of Supelux HD-330 and they are much better than akg 272. The sound for AKG is...

Great Soundtstage,light and comfortable fit

Bad sound,no mids no bas no claps,some high tweets and thats all

Smooth listening

 

Awesome pair of headphones for rock and techno music! I originally went down to a local audio store to audition a pair of grado 225is when these caught my eye. After almost an hour of going back and forth between the two pairs i finally decided to go...

clarity, bass, comfort, fairly sparkly highs

overpaid for them since im in canada, soundstage

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Comfortable and isolating

 

Value: I paid a steep price for them, you can get it for about $129 nowadays from some places, which would drive the value a lot higher. Still okay IMO. Audio Quality: Doesn't distort, doesn't cause ear-fatigue which I'm usually sensitive to, authentic...

non-fatiguing and neutral playback, ergonomics, lightweight, durable

no replaceable cable, didn't come with alternative pads like K271 MKII does

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Superb!

 

Very comfortable! Sound is great, although the bass may be a little weak sometimes. I'm not a bass-freak so that's okay for me though. Replaceable cable is great, also the ear-pads are replaceable which is also great. I find the leathery ones to be...

Overall sound, comfort, feeling, replaceable cable, on-off switch.

Some may think they are a little weak in the lower octaves.

Consumer review (head-fi.org)

Great for home use!!!!

 

These cans are super comfortable and the sound quality (amp'd) is very very good , i have not heard better! Although these are closed back they do let out a lot of sound if listening at high levels ,which i guess doesn't matter if you use them at home!...

Fantastic sound quality, Very comfortable, don't cause fatigue

Pretty much no accessories .Leak a lot of sound
