The AKG K44 are lightweight, moderately comfortable over-ear headphones that don't leak too much. Unfortunately, they're not versatile enough to use in loud environments or while doing physical activity. They're a bit cumbersome, and their sound...

Lightweight design. ; Low leakage.

Poor noise isolation. ; Weak, plasticky build quality. ; Subpar audio reproduction.

AKG K44 Closed Back Studio Headphones


Andrew Robinson put on the AKG K44 headphones for review. After running the headphones through a series of tests, he came up with a distinct impression of who the headphones might work best for. Read on to find out.

Despite the all-plastic black finish, the K44 headphones are rather attractive and far less garish than many of today's look-at-me studio headphones ; For closed-back studio cans, the K44 headphones are surprisingly comfortable long-term, thanks to...

I appreciate AKG providing me with ample cable with which to connect the K44 to my source of choice. However, the cable can become unruly at times, albeit it rarely tangles due to its thickness ; At low volumes, the K44's magic isn't altogether there,...

For roughly $80 retail, the K44 headphones from AKG's professional line of studio cans are quite good, competing favorably with headphones costing a little more. As a solid go-to headphone for both casual and critical listening, the K44 performs its...

Better than the price suggests


Bought these recently as my regular headphones got trashed by the kids. I was a little sceptical at first, they dont look quite as cool in the flesh as they do in the pictures, but once I used then, I realised what a great purchase they were. They are...

They are alright


Nothing to write home about, bought them for just under $70, the ear pads are very soft but after prolonged use they can hurt the external ear due to compression againt the head, going into more the technical side for the price they are good, but over...

Definitely worth the price


Good soft earpads that insulate outside noise quite well and are comfortable, a similarly comfortable elasticised head strap that holds the headphones on the head snuggly and securely, quite sturdy construction that has withstood daily normal use...

Extremely comfortable, but average sound


t amount of firmness, and the self-adjusting headband strap sits lightly on top of your head almost unnoticed. The 2.5m cable is ample, and the headphones have thus far proven very durable for day-to-day use, including overseas travel. At this price...

For £15 they're great. Sound harsh at first but soon settle down.


Great for the price. I use mine with a Muse TU-20 HP amp and they sound great together.

Very inexspensive nowadays, rich bass

Plasticky. But hey for £15.... meh

Good Sound; Crappy Band


I bought a pair of AKG-K44's and I loved them. Unfortunately the Headband broke, which is basically repairable, BUT they charge $30+ to send a replacement band...which is ridiculous. The sound is really clear, and it amazes me how often these...

Not expensive, Clear sound, Long Cord

Headband Broke, expensive for replacement band, uncomfortable when band breaks.
