Just a wonderful, comfortable, all day headphones


Got this as a "replacement" for my K501s, has that same-ish AKG sound to it, comfortable all day listening headphones. The earpads on these are superior to the old 501s, very big and comfortable. Bass is a subdued, but its there in a very refined...

Nice balanced sound, super comfortable and BIG earpads

Bass could do with a little help. Needs an amp to show its true potential

Good and inexpensive allrounder with incredible soundstage and imaging


Background It's safe to say that Massdrop has played a decent role in both introducing new products to the headphone community while highlighting others through their group-purchase system. The headphone I'm going to tackle today is their collaboration...

Beyond vast soundstage, accurate imaging, comfortable, detachable cable, lightweight, price

Overall sound is good but not great, only available (with a long wait time) when Massdrop makes it available, requires a beefy amp and source setup

Okay for what they are, not at all what I like.


AKG K7XX As should be obvious, I'm not a professional reviewer. Heck, I'm not even a frequent reviewer. But every now and then, I do get a desire to throw my $.02 in an interesting headphone or other piece of equipment. In this case it is the AKG K7XX,...

Solid build, price, not fatiguing at all, pretty comfortable

Unnatural soundstage, muddy bass, no "impact"

Neutral when it needs to be, a bit of kick when you want it.


The K7XX is a set of cans that has earned some extremely high praise since its burst onto the audiophile scene roughly a year ago through group buy vendor Massdrop. Some of which is deserved, some... not so much. The headphones are essentially a...

Sound quality, very analytical, slight bass kick, very open.

Almost too neutral, not "fun", build quality not the greatest.

This is the best pair of headphones I have tried yet.


I got these from the forum. They are First edition. Looks: The look is slick. Big earcups, all black, clean look. (though not important, who wants headphones to be ugly?) Build: I very much like the overall build. The earpads are pretty good. The...

clear, not anemic, looks, removable cable

My ears touch the side, not a fan of the headband

A+ headphones that should be known for sound quaility and not just value.


I have been an Audio Technica guy for the last 20 years or so. I have the AD700, A700, AD900X, M50, ANC27 plus the Sony 7506's. I was looking to try an AKG and had been trying for a while to win a set of Q701 Quincy Jones Signatures on Ebay when I saw...

Huge sound-stage and separation, clean fast very open sound, extremely comfortable, removable cable, an evolution of a classic, a steal at the price.

Should be used with an amp.

absolutely incredible


First off, this is my first real pair of "audiophile" headphones. After about of year of research I came upon massdrop and these beauties, all black, Austrian design, and legacy of great open backs to back it up, for only 200$! I can very much get...

cloud pillows, very open sound, amazing separation, great highs and mids

bass could be better but that'd be nitpicking

Bang For Buck Beast


I'm a sort of an amateur in the audiophile world, however, after owning these headphones and pairing them with a good-ish amp (Aune T1 MK2), my not so expert opinion says that these are a pretty killer pair of headphones for the price (~$200 on...

Bass, Comfort, Clarity

AKG K7xx Review and Comparison to DT 880 Pro


The AKG K7xx is one of the most popular headphones around right now. In this review you'll see some explanations as to why that is, and how it stacks up to a revered classic in the Beyerdynamic DT 880 Pro. Background and Test Setup I am a 21 year old...

Mostly neutral, detailed but not brutally unforgiving, exceptional sound stage and imaging for the price, good extension, extremely comfortable

Build quality, treble lacking in linearity and naturalness at times, some may find it too "dry" sounding

Bang goes the buck!


==Introduction== I would like to thank the Head-Fi Massdrop staff and AKG for producing such a good pair of headphones. This pair has honestly been one of the best cures for upgrade-itis I have had in a long while and I think that it will be a nice...

Awesome value for money, very comfortable design, natural sounding with much better treble than other AKG K7-series offering

Lack of accessories, plasticy build, possible issues with headband elastic, no balanced option
