Pros: Audio fidelity, Lightweight, Isolation
Cons: Very tight, lacks Bass, Small for some people ; low volume
Well, I just moved from a Genius GX Cavimanus (gaming headset) to an AKG K171 MKII recently. I am using it for nearly 3 months. My main use is to listen music on PC, gaming and watch some series.
The AKG K171 MKII is VERY TIGHT, especially for fat guys (like me) or / and with big head.
It have GREAT Medium, Low and Highs but lacks an punching BASS. So, bassheads, run from this headphone.
The pros comparing with the gaming headset I owned, the AKG isolates much more because it is an closed headphone, it have much more fidelity in audio distribution than any gaming headset I've owned so far and it is very lightweight.
The cons are the low volume. I configured on my Sound Blaster Recon 3D, equalized the audio, but it lacks volume compared with gaming headsets. The bass don't exist on this headphone! It is noticeable but bassheads like me will NOT like it at all. and it is VERY TIGHT. As I said, I am a fat guy and have a big head and the pressure that this headphone puts in the head is very high, making it uncomfortable for many hours gaming or listening to music.
What can I say? The headphone is very good for people who don't care about bass or don't like high volumes and don't care about the constant pression on the head (if you are a thin guy, you won't suffer / suffer less with thar problem). For people like me, who likes punching Bass, high volumes and comfortable Headphones, it is just another headphone which I bought and forgotten after a while.
Hope you enjoyed the review and sorry for my poor english grammar. I am from a country who haven't english as main language.
