Amazing quality

By Tyler

from Mesa, AZ

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

WOW!!! I have had these head-phones for almost a year now and have not failed me yet. They have amazing sound quality, and since they are over-ears, it blocks out any noise. These are great for recording or even just jamming out! These headphones are definitely one of my best buys here at guitar center. I would recommend them to anyone of my friends. I hope you are more than satisfied with them too!

Awesome

By Solo

from Amarillo,TX

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

AKG products rock and these headphones are no exception. They do an exceptional job when tracking and I've even used them to master the final product. When I'm not using them in the studio, I sometimes use them just to listen to music and relax. Very comfortable to wear and they don't fatigue your ears. They are light weight and adjustable so will fit on just about anyone. The clarity and frequency response across the entire audio spectrum, is simply outstanding. You can hear things in your tracks that you may find hard to hear thru your monitors, which allow you to clean up dirty tracks or boost frequencies. I would recommend these to anyone, whether it be a hobbyist just wanting a great pair of headphones to listen to music or to the professional studio engineer. You can't get this quality for the price either. I've owned headphones that cost nearly twice as much and these hold their own every step of the way. Be careful though, these sound so good that they can be very addictive and you may find yourself wearing them all the time!

Fantastic sound!

By mysticalmusic

from OR

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

Although the AKGK271's are for studio monitoring and recording, I wanted only the highest quality headphones just to listen to music. The sound quality is excellent, they are comfortable to wear and the music is all you will hear. I highly recommend these headphones!

Great Headphones

By Revent68

from Santa Maria, CA

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

There is a reason why you see AKG headphones so often in the industry. They sound amazing. I've owned several pairs of the 240s and love the way they make it sound like you're in a room instead of wearing headphones. They are very comfortable and don't give me headaches like other headphones. The 240s are open back so you can hear your voice when you sing, while the 270s are closed. I use these for applications where I want to block out the sound around me. Well worth the money if you have it.

Headphones of god

By Alex

from el paso texas

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

This headphones are a bit pricey but if you like top quality you came to the right place. Wether you are a dj or just like to listen to music or you work in a studio this headphones are amazing. i use the to spin at clubs where the amps are blasting and with these headphones on it blocks out all sound. I have had these for a while and i am extremely satisfied with the amazing performance of this product. I have had absolutely no problems with these headphones and i would not doubt even once investing in these headphones again.

wow

By Jason W

from Grand Rapids MIchigan

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

these things are incredible! out of the box you get the headphones(obviously) 2 chords straight or curled, and two sets of ear pads, velvet or leather. these are the most comfortable head phones i have ever worn.. and the sound is incredible. alot of reviews complain about how the bass is weak on these, i they are wrong. it has just the right amount of bass. not to much, not to little. these head phones will give you the true sound of what you are listening to, unlike some other head phones. if all your looking for in a closed back head phone is bass, then buy beats or something that will overwhelm you with bass. these head phones are comparable, give you the true sound of your listening to.

CRISP, DURABLE, LOVE EM

By Nick Patronella

from Houston, Tx

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

These are fantastic HPs. They make everything sound great for studio use even if everything is ruff in the mix, it doesn't matter!. With that in mind I would not use these to mix, or check my mix on!!! The auto on/off function is great. They don't have much bleed, so no nasty metronome in the tracks!!! Combfortable for long hours and have a good bass respond for bass tracking is always good!! GET EM!!!

What can I say?

By Mac East

from Colorado

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

I've compared these headphones side-by-side with the Pioneer HDJ-1000s (the really shiny ones) and by far, these can deliver more bass, better his and mids and just a thicker tone than what Pioneer can ever imagine. Very confortable to wear, adjusts to many head sizes, and I can see these being my top-arsenal pic for the future to come.

Good Quality Headphones

By Amy Mitchell

from Los Angeles, CA

Comments about AKG K271 MKII Headphones:

Good quality headphones matter. With cheap headphones you won't hear what your music really sounds like and you very well might make adjustments that don't need to be made. I work from my apartment so I need to hear what is happening, but I have to use headphones to do this. These allow me to work through amazing sound while still keeping the peace with my neighbors.
