I picked this item up as the reviews i have read favoured these cans. I borrowed someone else’s aka 250s and have liked.
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.

Akg k271 mk11 studio headphones. I was very pleased with the headphones i received. I find them to be very well made and sturdy,which was exactly what i was looking for. I expect to be using them for years to come.
Akg k271 circumaural studio headphones. My sennheiser 565 ovations, considered to be a standard for neutrality and detail are now 17 years old. I was recently in the british library doing an online course, and the library uses akg 271 studio headphones on all of their computers. I was so impressed with the sound quality that i ordered a pair online. I use them at home with a meridian 203 dac and an nad 3020i audio amplifier, through the headphone socket. They are definitely in the same class as the sennheisers. The bass, using the supplied velour earpads is rich, tight and deep, the midrange,while being less full than the sennheisers, is crisp and incisive. This slight leanness in the lower mid might well contribute to the impression that they are slightly tighter than the senheisers. The treble, however is very bright indeed, and reveals all the detail in a recording, warts and all. It can give the impression , of being slightly disorganised particularly with rock music.
Very comfortable to wear for long periods, uncoloured sound reproduction, i use these in my home recording studio.
AKG K271 MKII Professional Closed-Back, Over-Ear Studio Headphones : Superb headphones bought for working on fine detail on studio mixes. Superb headphones bought for working on fine detail on studio mixes. Very smooth and flat, and therefore realistic, audio reproduction across the entire spectrum no noticeable emphasis. Usually i always get the bass end wrong when mixing on headphones but not with these.
