Comments about AKG K 81 DJ DJ-Style Headphones:

I have used these headphones in my business as a DJ and for home use. They are great!!! I highly recommend them. They are just as good as my Bose headphones I use for my IPOD.

You get what you pay for...aka not much.

By Michael Canterino

from Long Island

Comments about AKG K 81 DJ DJ-Style Headphones:

It only took me about 20 minutes to not like these headphones. First of all, they are TINY. They just fit when i have them pulled out as far as they can go, and they fit extremely tight on my head and ears and were pretty much immediately unbearably uncomfortable. I'm also pretty worried that if I'm wearing them like this all of the time, it won't take long at all for the pretty flimsy plastic to snap. I wear a 7 3/8 hat, so if your head is around the same size then i would highly recommend you don't get these. On a positive side, it includes a 1/4 plug and a protective bag to keep the headphones in. The sound on them is good and pretty balanced, but if you like to listen to your music reallllly loud, then these are not the headphones you want. all in all, I regret not spending the extra 20-40 bucks on a nicer pair of headphones in the first place, and am now pretty bummed about being given the errand of having to return them.

Sound Quality

By Ron Escarcega

from Inland Empire, California

Comments about AKG K 81 DJ DJ-Style Headphones:

As a mobile DJ I was looking for something light weight, durable, good sound quality. This Dj headphone does this. The Dj headphone conveniently has a pouch you can fold to put away nicely. The only down side is that the headset around the head is a little tight. Great price for good quality. A excellent deal for the price.
