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.

                        These AKG headphones are absolutely fantastic! Although probably close to being their entry-level offering, they sound great and are light and very comfortable. As an eyeglass wearer, I find their "around the ear" design a plus for comfort, as the "on the ear" type press my ears against the glasses, causing discomfort before long. These AKGs are VERY comfortable, even wearing glasses! I wish I'd bought more than one pair!

                        These headphones are great for their price! Of course there are better options but these do the job and are the price of earbuds. For Project Studios and Home Recording. These closed-back headphones are a true all-round performer with solid bass and clean highs at a value price. The AKG self-adjusting headband, leatherette ear pads, and gimbal suspension ensure good comfort.
