AKG K701 Studio Headphones

AKG K701 Studio Headphones

“ Lets start with:   Design, build quality & comfort:   They are white - thats what people notice on the first look. I must say I really like the design and the "feel" - The leather headband is a nice addition to the white and gray colors. Build quality is very very good - they are very sturdy and don't feel like breaking apart after a month. I dropped them incidentally few...” --JeckyllAndHyde

AKG K 702 Headphones

AKG K 702 Headphones

“I've owned these for the best part of a month now and have done some extensive listening with them both in extended listening sessions of several albums and of comparative listening sessions with with my HD650. I feel I am ready to comment on the qualities of these phones.   I had always intended to put these and the HD650 against each other and sell one, as I had thought it would be an...” --EddieE

AKG K 550

“   First Impression   When I first listened to these headphones, my initial two thoughts in this order were: 1. Wow these sound pretty fast and also fairly even - 15 seconds later - 2. Wow something is wrong with the upper mids     Packaging who cares   Build Quality/Aesthetics These headphones feel very well built.  I can't speak to...” --rhythmdevils

AKG K240 MKII Headphones

AKG K240 MKII Headphones

“ After getting a FiiO e10, to bypass the crappy onboard sound on my computer, I was looking for some headphones to replace my Sennheiser HD485's and to kind of justify the purchase of the DAC/amp. After perusing the forums I noticed a trend about the AKG 240's, they pop up only now and then as a recommendation, but, at the same time, they seem to be consensually regarded as solid headphone....” --kAbUZi

AKG Q701 Premium Class Reference Headphones, Quincy Jones Signature Line

AKG Q701 Premium Class Reference Headphones, Quincy Jones Signature Line

“          From AKG's website - they describe the Q701 as:   Quote: Sparkling harmonics, incredibly low distortion and unequalled realism in the lower frequencies – it’s the huge, airy, three-dimensional sound available only in the finest high-end speaker systems and microphones. Now, we've engineered it into the most accurate and responsive...” --Brooko

AKG K501

AKG K501

“ This headphone is one of the best headphones for classical music. Others in the same price range would be Audio Technica ATH-AD900, Beyer DT880, AKG k701. I think that k501 can even challenge some other dynamic headphones in higher price ranges. It is definately better than Sennheisers offerings HD650/600, for classical. This is a real classic, one of a kind. ” --szoze

AKG K612 PRO Reference Studio Headphones

AKG K612 PRO Reference Studio Headphones

“I have owned several other AKGs, including the K240s, the K702 65th Anniversaries, the and Q701 Quincy Jones Signatures (basically the same thing as an updated K701/702). The K612s sound-wise lie somewhere between the K240s and the K7-series, while having a unique sound signature of their own.    Build: Made in Austria, and very close to the K7-series, but not exactly. They feel...” --bpandbass

AKG Acoustics K-240 Semi Open Studio Headphones

AKG Acoustics K-240 Semi Open Studio Headphones

“ AKG K-240 Studio are at least the 4th (really 5th or 6th?) iteration of K-240 design, which started with the K-240 Sextett in the 1970s, themselves a circumaural version of supra K-140. The basic idea behind the "Sextett" design is that the main diaphragm drives six passive radiators, which enhance ambience and spatial imaging. Now, while this is a very good idea for headphones in an era when...” --Seidhepriest

AKG Acoustics K240 Monitoring Headphones

AKG Acoustics K240 Monitoring Headphones

“When I compare these to the newer Studio K240s, these win by a long shot. Not only in neutrality and detail, but in build design too.  The Studios have a big mid bass hump that makes everything sound boomy. But the Monitor version has a very balanced frequency response that sounds almost perfect. To me, the treble is very good, but I dislike the spike most AKGs have in the 8-9 kHz range,...” --achelgeson
