I just picked these up to replace my cheap Radio Shack phones that I stepped on... The ear cuffs are very comfortable so long sessions don't cause pain. The output volume is amazing - much louder than my previous set. The cord is nice and long so you have a lot of freedom to move around. Comes with 3.5mm and 1/4" stereo jacks of good quality. Auto adjusting head strap works great! Cons- I think the cord is poorly shielded, they pickup a good deal of 60Hz noise and that's a bit annoying. Also I tested the bandwidth and they work fine, nice and clear, from 20Hz to ~ 16KHz above that they attenuate the signal badly. So if you really need 20KHz these won't do. For the price they are very good. Once your playing through them the noise isn't an issue; it fades into the background. I would recommend them to all but the most picky audiophiles.

These headphones are not terrible. Nor are they AMAZING. I've had them for a few weeks, and they're comfortable and cool, however they produce a bit of static. I can't really play anything at the desired volume without the sound popping a bit. The sound quality is a bit muddy as well. The lows and the mids run together a bit, and the highs aren't very crisp. If you're on a budget then these are good headphones, but if you can afford better, then I would suggest kicking in a few more bucks to get something a bit more dynamic.

    Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

    I bought these headphones way back in 2007. Now, 9 years later I am still rocking them. I am from a professional music recording background and have gone through countless headphones over the years. These cheap AKGs outlasted Grados, Beats, and even Pioneers. Please do not be fooled by the super cheap price. Deep rich base, and clear highs. Not much to look at, but if you want a name brand with durability, and quality sound... stop looking. This is for you. AKG for life!!!

        Comments about AKG K 44 Headphones:

        I use these for practice. I am a bass player and most headphones bottom out when I use them. I was amazed at the range and the clarity of the low end. I noticed that people like to complain about the length of the cord. I really don't see why, for the cord is much longer than most.I run my ipad to my amp then I am able to learn song very easily. Most headphones have a hard time handling two inputs at once, but these do an outstanding job. I would highly recommend them to musicians.

          Decent headphones for the price. I picked these up for my home studio, to replace an aging pair of headphones, and they get the job done. Pretty good at blocking out other noises in the room, and the quality isn't terrible.

            Easily one of the most comfortable phones I've ever worn.When I have phones on I have to wear them for hours at a time and it's difficult to find sets light enough to provide great fidelity. The sound and comfort can't be beat for the price.

                    I use these Phones as an alternate to my Shure and Sennheiser. While they are not quite the all around quality of either, they are similar and well worth what I paid for them. I would not hesitate to use them for tracking in my studio and sometimes use them for alternates for reference when it comes to mixing. I have not found better phones for under 50 dollars.
