    "Great sounding celebrity endorsed headphone"
    Pros - Beautiful sonic presentation, subbass, wonderful mids, non fatiguing highs, comfortable, variable bass, mini-xlr dual entry socket
    Cons - questionable build quality (at least in the past)
    I don't constantly own a huge headphone inventory, in the past I had the Sennheiser Amperior + HD25, ATH-M50X, and currently have the V-MODA M100. Compared to those headphones the K267 is superior if you prefer a more natural sound. All of the previous cans I mentioned are somewhat more aggressive sounding. The focus seems to be on a musical presentation rather than pure fun.
     
    the K267 Tiesto is a smooth sounding headphone with a subtle sub bass boost in its club and stage settings, while the studio setting is a bit too restrained for me I enjoy the club and especially the stage setting the most.
     
    It always sounds coherent and uncolored, it doesn't have the widest of soundstages but it is still a nice presentation, sort of enveloping around you with more height than width.
     
    First impression compared to the popular M100 is that it has more mid presence and sounds clearer in the mids, but doesn't have the overly present bass and treble sparkle, the M100 sounds busy and exciting while the Tiestos are more relaxed sounding and yet NOT dark.
     
    My guess is that with the dotted headband it might be a bit too bling bling for some, coupled with very poor amazon reviews due to a build quality issue that appears to have been fixed, at least my latest model seems to be holding up.
     
    But sound quality wise it is very enjoyable and non genre specific compared to other DJ cans.
     
    The comfort is very good in my opinion, despite a secure fit the clamping force is not too high, the earpads are very soft and replaceable.

    "Great DJ Head Phones"
    Pros - Exceptional Noise Reduction Great Lows, Great for Club or Festival
    Cons - Get Hot with Extended Use, swivel can be improved - Not comfortable for One Ear Mixing
    The AKG K267 TËISTO Over the Ear DJ HeadPhones are a true Marvel.
     
    Exceptional Build Quality for the Price, no cut corners.
     
    3 Listening Modes
     
    Excellent Noise Reduction, virtually eliminates all outside sound (Studio Mode)
     
    Comes with two choices of XLR Plugs Coiled and Non Coiled (Very Long). Travel Bag (Could Be Improved).
     
    These headphones need to be "Burned In" for about 10 hours to get the true sound out of them.
