The only dislikes I do have are the headband can be uncomfortable after an hour of so, how they reveal of the mistakes of your favourite recordings not really a dislike as such and the fact I paid more for mine and soon after AKG reduced the cost. Add to wish list. The AKG Ks are k02 for professionals in music production, DJs, or casual listeners who desire an accurate sound stage that isn’t too bright and doesn’t have overwhelming bass.
Only negative thing is the headband comfort. I pilot them with a FiiO X5 3rd Gen and the sound very well! Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from great bang for the buck i am using these headphones mostly with my ipod and computer with a art headamp4 amplifier.

AKG K add-on savings. Over hours burn in and unfortunately no respite to the nasally, grating, chalkboard-like upper midrange. The plush soft velvet ear pads completely fit over the ears and they auto adjust to the size of your head.

Pros – Comfortable, Light, Great quality, large soundstage. The DT will be comparatively inferior in design mechanism; do observe the headbands, wiring connection methods and fixed cable. But besides that these headphones are great, specially for classical music and jazz. Instead of spending euros for Beats these are much more realistic and enveloping than all the basses that the Beats returns! Please check your local sales tax laws.
The only two problems that I can find with these headphones are that the rods that go over the top of the headphones are plastic and I could see them breaking after many years of use and the headphones themselves are huge!

These simply are great sounding headphones. Playing well recorded masters will reveal a great amount of detail and soon you’ll find yourself hearing things you never noticed before, like amplifier noises or coughs. Most professional users must wear their headphones for extended periods of time, so comfort is a key requirement. The sound is best described as being faithful, very uncoloured and extremely detailed. It is straight, flexible and does not get tangled.
Obviously if you have a smartphone, forget the mWatt! These provide very good ventilation for our ears xkg in hot agk climates.

Apart from the shop, you can discover a wide variety of additional things – forums, apps, blogs, and much more. The disadvantage of course is t hat they leak a lot of sound so I would advise against using them when recording a vocal line.

These are studio reference headphones. Audiophiles will argue akt lack low-end and accuracy in the treble whereas a studio engineer will argue they offer a neutral reference for between takes however not for critical mix decisions.
