post #931 of 1008

Are the acoustic settings just a variable bass port like on the Beyer COP? And more relevant to my interests... are these big enough for me to stick a T50rp driver into? biggrin.gif

Your mission is to stick a T50 rp driver into every can on the market isn't it biggrin.gif By the way, is it possible to stick one into a AKG Q701?

Um... maybe? It'd probably be more cost effective to just do it on a K240 chassis though.

is there a secret to getting good customer service from AKG in the US?  my 167's cracked above the hinge as well and i have been having a back and forth with hector from their tech dept and i'm not sure he even reads his emails because he keeps asking me to send him the same information every couple days and never does anything with it when i give it to him.

 

very frustrating.  the headphones are used in office only and after 3 months they cracked on both sides.

Have you tried calling them?

You can always do it the PFULMTL way and transplant the drivers into another case.

 

A few short months later and the k167 is down to $125. Good thing i returned them while it was still in one piece.

yes, I called and was told to contact the tech guy.  i was honestly expecting customer service to just replace it since it's obviously defective and not very old, but they pushed me over there.  the tech guy never answered his phone or messages so i have been sending them emails for 13 days now and i am no further than i was when i started.

 

that said, i don't even know if i want another pair if I'm just going to have to go through this headache again in a few months.  i might try to see if i can get credit or something or swap them out with a different type.

Hello again from me.

After a little more than a month AKG replaced my headphones with brand new. And now I am afraid too use them...

Which part of the headband broke?

I'm so glad I didn't get these! What a disappointment!

That really blows man... I posted on these headphones after getting them right when they came out in early January and even though the subject matter was more about sound vs. other headphones (in this case I was coming from a pair of Ultrasone DJ-1's) and how disappointing the sound quality was among a couple other things.

 

After reading your post's it makes me not even want to use them, well maybe just as backups. However I am very disappointed to hear about how they broke for you and to be quite honest I have been skeptical about the headphones since I got them and still went back to using my Ultrasone's (cracked pads and everything lol).

 

I think I will be selling them because recently I saw the Ultrsone DJ-Pros on Amazon for sale for only $140.00 and bought a pair. They even better than the DJ-1's and the K267's are just collecting dust. They are probably not even burned in yet.

 

Anyways I'm glad to have read your post...the K267 headband itself felt cheap, and I wondered about the cool looking hinges. Maybe you had a defective pair, idk and I might be jumping the gun too early but that's enough for me to stray away from using them since the last thing I want are broken $350 cans.

 

On a side note...Tiesto loses mad points in my eyes for backing his own lack-luster line of headphones and the guy has not only sold-out, but also sold-out in the industry. The only thing that would redeem himself would be to go back to spinning Trance.

 

Cheers guys and thanks for letting me rant dt880smile.png

Ouch.... blink.gif How on earth did so much plastic break in such a catastrophic way..
Seems to be even weaker than shure's headband material (considering how thin it is)

post #945 of 1008

I don't get how AKG possibly could let this plastic design slip through. It doesn't take a genious to see that this design will break very easily. The cups are large and big and above that we have this point with only thin plastic frame. Of course it will stress the hell out of that plastic when putting them on/off your head.

 

And these are "DJ headphones"? DJ headphones are meant to be durable, that's like priority #1 you find when listening to DJ headphone reviews. That design is so full of fail. Had it been all aluminium it had been fine.
