Do not buy an Astell & Kern 120. It claims 192Gb memory, but it indexes and uses only the internal memory - 64gb. The external SD cards carry files but do not show up on the device. Money spent...

AKG K167 vs Audio Technica ATH M50?
Poll Results: Which would you buy/prefer?
62% (5)AKG K167
37% (3)Audio Technica M50
Gear mentioned in this thread:
K167 might sound better, but they are inferior to the M50 in basically every single other way. Uncomfortable, useless folding mechanism, flimsy, creaky, and (to me) pretty ugly.
Also, not everyone likes Tiesto.
I agree with you that not everyone like Tiesto cause I myself is included in that category but still, K167 is still a better sub to ATH-M50 to me. I find the ATH-M50 bass bloated. I did rather get the a bit harsh sounding bass on the K167.. Also the forward mids of K167... Just nice!
Just my 2cent
Oh, no, I agree with you completely. The AKG K167 does, without a doubt, sound better to me than the M50... but in terms of build, the K167 is just a joke, and because of that, I can't recommend it.
