I read the specs, view reviews before I chose this headphone because I'm picky and I listen to music a lot; music is life, my girlfriend also said that. So I'm happy to pay more than a hundred bucks for a headphone. Overall, I think this one is ok. It's great if you listen to vocal, R&B, jazz, ... but for heavy bass music like dance, rock, or even classical, I don’t think its bass is good enough. Someone said its bass is concentrated not “blur”, I agree, but somehow it’s weak to me. I think I need an amplifier. I think about it.

Great ! Sept. 7 2009
By Young Kim - Published on
These have excellent sound quality just the way AKG is known for.
High treble and thumping bass. Personally I think this particular set of headphones have better sound quality than the Bose headphones, which I have used before.
It doesn't use noise-cancelling technology but cuts out most of ambient noise so it should work very well in noisy environments as well.

Fantastic sound quality, but don't expect loudness from an ipod/iphone! June 1 2011
By jackccamp - Published on
Okay, both the description and the AKG website say that these headphones are suitable/ loud enough for portable players like iPods and iPhones. THIS IS WRONG! You can get solid volume when turned up all the way, in the silence of your home. But that's it. These headphones, although not a good solution for portable players, offer fantastic sound quality, with great instrument separation. The bass is lesser than many headphones, but that's a matter of personal preference. Anyway, these headphones are simply not loud enough and their shape and size is not ideal for bringing them places. Also, the on ear version (the ones I'm reviewing) clamp pretty seriously on your head after about half an hour of listening. However, after you break in the awesome velvet ear pads, the clamping force isn't nearly as bad and they become extremely comfy.
Also, this review was about using UNAMPED porable players.
All in all, great headphones, just not for an un amped iPod.

Love the sound, ears kinda hurt though June 1 2012
By Brent Fontes - Published on
Verified Purchase
I've never had high acoustic quality headphones before so when these went down to less than $80 bucks I risked it. So glad I did. I use them with my Marantz receiver/Teac CD player and my iPhone. The sound is amazing compared to my over the ear Sony's and my Philips in ear headphones. I've tried them with a variety of genres and every mp3 and cd is like listening to them anew. Theres a sense of depth and nuances that just blossoms. I'm also glad that they're not bass heavy as so many of the ones I've tried are. I noticed the vocal range seemed just a bit light even though it's very clear. It might just be a matter of my brain adapting to the new stimulus. Still the quality of sound reproduction is quite impressive to this non-audiophile. My only real complaint is that after a hour my ear cartilage starts hurting a bit and I don't think my head is particularly large lol. I'm hoping that as they losen up this will improve. Please note these do not have an in line volume adjuster, I only say that because a lot of people look for that, not because these headphones were advertised as such.

Great sounding headphones but definitely need an amp. Jan. 11 2012
By James D - Published on
Verified Purchase
I have been listening to these headphones for a couple of days now and while they seem to sound great you can definitely tell they need an amp to be able to drive them properly. These are very comfortable headphones and I will post a sound update after my cmoy amp gets here.
