Bought these along with a fiio e10 usb dac/amp and am completely satisfied. Maybe they don’t hit the lowest of the low in the bass register but what you hear is nice and punchy. Works well with my onkyo tx-sr875 receiver as well. Good fit, includes extra ear pads and two changeable cables so can’t really think of any complaints.
Good flat sound for accurate mix. Great sounding head phones for mixing. Also they turn off when you remove them from your head.

Built like a tank, sounds like an angel. . This is a really great set of headphones i’ve been using for the past year and a half, these are my impressions:looks: m’eh, they ain’t winning no beauty pageants. They have a utilitarian look which is just fine with me, they’re built to last, not to impress idiots on the bus. Build quality: very solid, sturdy headphones that have been on my head nearly every day since i bought them, no signs of cracking, scratching or polishing of the finish. The vinyl on the ear cushions dried out, but a second set was included in the box. The ceiling collapsed in my office in a rainstorm and killed my laptop, the headphones took the worst of it and all that happened was the sticky bits holding the foam inserts inside the ear cups don’t quite stick as well as they used to. This doesn’t matter as the ear cushions hold them in place just fine by themselvessound quality: very clear, even sound, much better than a lot of consumer grade headphones, including bose rubbish or any of that beats nonsense. These represent the audio as well as a decent set of speakers. Comfort: really comfy, like a koala cuddling your headfeatures: the headband auto adjusts, sound is cut off when the headphones are removed, the cable can be replaced. Extras: spare ear cushions, a jack adapter and an extra cable (coiled) are included, pretty sweet deal if you ask me.
I picked this item up as the reviews i have read favoured these cans. I borrowed someone else’s aka 250s and have liked.
AKG K171 MKII Professional Closed-Back, On-Ear Studio Headphones : I’ve owned the first version of these headphones for over a decade now and they’ve lasted that long with heavy use. I also have the sennheiser hd650 and hd25 but if i could just have one pair it would be these. The good: the cord is replaceable and long. The headphones mute when you take them off (genius). Super comfortable with the velour pads, big cups and flexible headband. The sound quality is good enough. The meh: the sound quality is good enough. You can probably get better sound with open headphones.
