Comments about AKG K141 MKII Headphones:

I originally purchased Sennheiser and they were just awful both in comfort and sound. This AkG headset has only one issue and that being with the coiled cord connection. It is very cheaply made and fits very loosely in ear piece. But they are extremely comfortable if you have them on for long periods and are worth the price you pay for more then you are getting. keep a pair of these in your music box.

Extraordinary sense of depth. Really allows the listener to distinguish woody acoustic tones from electric sounds. Valuable when identifying defects in recording. More comfortable that comparable Sennheiser headphones.

Bang for the Bucks!

By Wes Gundersen

from El Paso, Texas

Comments about AKG K141 MKII Headphones:

Received my AKG K141's as a Xmas gift, requested them when asked by bro's & sisters what I wanted. Mind blowing gift from the Gods! I have enjoyed them so much - primarily when I am creating my own music in my limited but GREAT home studio. I am no musical genius or iconic idol worthy of evaluating this product, but I can, without trepidation offer my humble opinion that these headphones really can deliver the goods when recording in a "near field proximity" - HONEST and TRUE REPRODUCTION, whether you soar or suck, it's the undisputable TRUTH.

Comments about AKG K141 MKII Headphones:

As a long time hobbyist guitarist/song writer, myhumble opinion regarding the AKG K141 MKII studioheadphones may seem inconsequential to experiencedprofessionals, but I am nevertheless compelled toshare my delightful experience with this product.I record spontaneous inspiration directly into mybeloved Fostex MR8 16 bit 8 track multitrack withno peripherals whatsoever, first tracks only withno "fixings" and burn the original raw compositionto PC CDR wav. file. thus capturing the real truthof expression, purity of emotion. I use the K141'swhen recording and when playing back and the truthis always there, the phones do not lie, frequencyresponce is fantastic, they are super comfortableand perform way beyond the most rigid requirementsof major label studios. They give alot of bang forthe buck. I could not be more pleased or satisfiedwith the quality this beautiful product delivers.

A Step Down

By Mark-7zD.z

from Northeastern U.S.

Comments about AKG K141 MKII Headphones:

The AKG K141 MKII (aka K141 Studio model) has replaced the venerable K141 Monitor model. And it is a giant tumble downhill for AKG. The new Studio model is louder, due to a decrease in impedance from 600 ohms to 55 ohms, but the new design offers up a harsh-sounding upper midrange. Compared to many other brands and models out there, it's still a good headphone, but given the dramatic price increase that came along with the model change, it's not a great value. Very disappointing.
